Numerous Oregon news outlets ran fake news stories in the past day, leaving out CRITICAL CONTEXT to the state’s Covid-19 report.
The bogus World Happiness Report is back. The news media loves to run stories about this annual nonsense report that defines happiness as living in a Scandinavian country. I analyzed and demolished this report back in 2016.
“Tear gas” and “Pepper spray” have been redefined by riot enthusiasts as “chemical munitions” and “chemical weapons” as they seek to ban the use of crowd control measures by police, when employed at “mostly peaceful protests”.

Social media content companies actively engage in censorship using a wide variety of approaches. Their censorship regimes are vastly larger and more powerful than most realize.
A 12-part NY Times story from 2018 was based almost entirely on a hoax. In other words, it is the very definition of fake news.
