Paul Joseph Watson is back with another epic rant….this time eviscerating the mainstream media for spreading an obviously biased list of “fake news” sources compiled by a left-wing assistant professor in an obvious attempt to undermine conservative news outlets.
We wrote about the list a couple days ago as Zero Hedge itself was actually a target of Melissa “Mish” Zimdars’ fake news wrath. To our complete “shock”, the list of fake news sources created by the self-described “feminist, activist” who is an avid supporter of numerous “neutral” political groups, like Occupy Wall Street, included several conservative news outlets like Breitbart and InfoWars but somehow missed leftist sites like The Huffington Post which was exposed by WikiLeaks to have been overtly colluding with the Hillary Clinton campaign.
As always, here are a couple of our favorite lines though the full clip is a must see.
Oh, and when they say “fake news,” that includes any reporting or opinion that contradicts their leftist narrative.
Who gave the mainstream media the right to be judge, jury and executioner of what constitutes “fake news”? All you do is put out fake news. You’re the aficionado of fake news. You put out the fake news that Hillary Clinton was 98% likely to win the presidency. You printed out and shipped copies of Newsweek celebrating “Madam President.” You put out fake, rigged polls that were proven spectacularly wrong. You create fake narratives like Trump being responsible for violence at his own rallies when it was DNC-funded agitators all along. You’re the fucking experts of fake news.
As WikiLeaks exposed, you’re a public relations front for the Democratic Party. You lost the argument. You trashed your own credibility. And now you’re trying to resurrect it by claiming that everyone that beat you is “fake news”. Give me a break.
As a reminded, here is the full list of news outlets deemed “fake” by the snowflake of infinite wisdom, Melissa Zimdars:
Conveniently for the mainstream media, she ignored the following list of people who WikiLeaks exposed as having actually colluded with Hillary Clinton’s campaign over the course of two years.

The Mainstream Media’s “Fake News” Narrative is Already Beginning to Collapse
Quantcast restores Infowars, blacklist of “fake news websites” removed
The mainstream media’s “fake news” narrative is already beginning to collapse after the author of a blacklist of “fake news websites” removed the list and Quantcast reinstated Infowars.com to its ranking as the 126th most trafficked website in the world.
Yesterday we reported on how Quantcast had apparently de-listed Infowars.com at the same time that the mainstream media was circulating a list of “fake news websites” that included big conservative news outlets such as Infowars and Breitbart.
Infowars has now been re-instated on Quantcast’s list of top websites and has skyrocketed up to number 126 on the list.
In addition, the list of so-called “fake news websites” created by a biased extreme leftist social justice warrior professor has now been removed from where it was hosted on Google Docs.
The author of the list, Melissa Zimdars, claims that it is being “transferred to and expanded on in a more permanent, dynamic, and collaborative home.” This claim is false. The list has been wiped due to the overwhelming number of complaints received from people pointing out that she had included completely legitimate news sources (the vast majority conservative) on the blacklist.
The fact that the mainstream media, which has proven itself to be the experts at “fake news,” from fake predictions showing Hillary had a 98% chance of winning the presidency, to fake rape campus rape hoaxes, to fake narratives about Trump being responsible for DNC-sponsored violence at his own rallies, is now lecturing everyone else about what constitutes “fake news” is deliciously ironic.
Twitter and other social media websites are now being saturated with the counter-narrative that the main purveyor of “fake news” is the mainstream media itself.
With trust in mainstream media (fake news) continuing to hover at record lows, the corrupt corporate press has once again failed to dictate the terms of reality and only succeeded in making itself look deceptive, underhanded and idiotic once again.
