This Is How Fake News Becomes the Narrative: ‘Russia Hacked the Election’

Here’s Rush Limbaugh about the latest leftist narrative:

Folks, we are living in the midst of a giant teachable moment. This is how it happens. This is how fake news takes root and becomes the narrative, becomes the daily script of the inside-the-Beltway soap opera written by the Drive-By Media. This whole business of Russia hacking our election is fake news with the imprimatur of intelligence agencies and the CIA, and it’s brought to us by the same newspapers that took out, tried to take out Richard Nixon. And if I didn’t know better, I would say they are trying to relive the moment and “Watergate” Donald Trump.

. . .

This is exactly how it happens. Even though Trump has won, even though Hillary has been vanquished, even though the left has suffered defeat after defeat after defeat, the Drive-By Media is still there, and they’re still acting as they always do. They are setting the agenda. They are setting the narrative, establishing it, and they are determining what everybody talks about.

And today, because of this, I found myself asking myself, should I play this game today or not? Should I treat this the way I’ve been treating it for all the years I’ve been doing the program? And that is to react to it, to go on defense, to explain how the lies stack up here, to explain the BS. And I think I’ve got no choice, and I don’t know if it’s a problem or if it’s just the way it is.

Fake news is the order of the day. Fake news, a story first on Saturday and then on Sunday, Washington Post and New York Times, that intelligence sources, it turns out to be unnamed, a couple people, we don’t know who, no specifics, alleging that the Russians left fingerprints as they hacked the 2016 election.
