          Now that the Electoral College has voted, it is fair to say that the Democrat Party radicals, such as John Podesta and the crazed media maniacs created "fake news" galore with their dishonest declarations about faithless electors and an election which was illegitimate. Those dishonorable people are the real illegitimates of this episode of fake news.


            It is now even more apparent that there was never a chance that the electoral voters would defect and faithlessly vote for a candidate other than the one to whom they were pledged. Yes, there were some cranks and more Clinton cranks than Trump cranks. But never was there any movement toward the necessary number needed to move the presidency from the winner to any other person or to not have an electoral winner and move the vote to the Republican House of Representatives. Thus, the multiple media outlets created a fake news story that any cub reporter could readily debunk. And they knew it but, to keep themselves relevant, at least in their own minds, they kept at this phony theme for weeks, knowing it was always a non-story - it would never happen as envisioned and as postulated.


            In this desperate attempt to thwart or injure Trump, the media once again disgraced itself and buried itself deeper into oblivion. If you didn't think much of the media before the Electoral College scam, you surely think less of it now. Their phony story has been shown to have been demonstrably false when you see that but 7 electors switched, mostly against Clinton. This is consistent with the other fake news story, the one about recounting the votes, ostensibly from loser Jill Stein, it arose from the entrails of the Clinton crowd who, as usual, have zero honor. [It is difficult for honor to be found in a group founded by a draft-dodging rapist.] The courts and the re-counters demolished that story and the fact of a recount's necessity as Trump actually gained a few votes. And yet none in the media have questioned why there were more votes counted in Detroit than there were voters registered. I suppose it's not necessary as we know why, don't we? The media's lack of interest is, btw, another fake news story - nothing to see here, let's move on.


            Slowly but surely, the newspaper media is dying. It cannot survive its recent past as it has destroyed the singular characteristic it most requires: credibility. You might think of it as the Clinton disease and, once infected, it is incurable.
