Unfortunately not everyone. If you're reading that cnn work of fiction then you're reading it because you're using cnn as your source of news. I would say most of the country don't know what or how to use critical thinking skills.

most of the country don't know what or how to use critical thinking skills.

One glance at Twitter shows this to be the case. From Black Science Man's tautological bullshit to Mr. Degree-in-Linguistics over here... these people get fancy degrees, but somehow never have to learn about logic. Let's take Linguo:

"Santa Claus isn’t real. So any associated attributes are inherently false. "

Okay... so show me the number one smart guy. Not "one apple" or "one douchebag" (cause you're already here), but the actual number one. Is it real? If you can't show it to me, then I guess it's not real right? Concepts such as "Santa Claus" or "the number 1" are just imaginary. So 1+1 = 2 is false right, because that would require 1 to have an additive or quantitative attribute which allows it to be summed, but it's not real, so it's attributes are false.

Twitter is inherently retarded. No one is going to say anything of profound insight in 160 characters or less.

And while I'm on a rant: I fucking hate linguistics majors/people. They're like children that never grew up, "What I said means what I think it means because I said it so I know the true meaning." That second part might be true; you probably know what you meant to say. But you obviously (fucking somehow) missed the point of communication in your study of linguistics. Communication being the entire point of any language, I don't know how you missed that. But both parties need an agreed understanding about what is meant in order for communication and thus language to work correctly - making shit up on the fly just doesn't work. I once had a linguistics Master's say "Why are you being antisocial?"

"I'm being nonsocial - I just don't feel like going out. I'm not actively preventing others from socializing - that would be antisocial."

"Antisocial is the same as nonsocial because that's what people think it means."

"Okay, so what's the word for actively working against society or social gatherings? Because "anti" means "opposed to/against" for thousands of years, but you're telling me now that it is the same "non," which has just meant "not" for about the same amount of time."

"Well, language evolves to mean what current society thinks it means..."

"You didn't answer the question."

"Well, I guess there's not one."

"Yes there fucking is - it's antisocial. Not going out is just being nonsocial. Here's an example of being antisocial:"

And I punched that stupid bitch and ran out.

That's because they went to American indoctrination camps which they paid for.

Time to stop calling it "fake news". Now it should be pushed as propaganda.. Just as it is.

Propaganda may be truthful. Something being a propaganda does not mean it is not a fact. It just means that the message is promoted. Words "propaganda" and "propagate" are semantically linked.

Thus "fake news" is a much more heavy handed accusation, because it clearly states that what anyone is seeing is a lie.

The worst imo is the "people familiar with [subjects] thinking"

Youd think after the media was made fun of hard for using that line with comey theyd retire that yellow journalistic phrase. "People familiar with his thinking" could mean anything. If it was a friend or associate then why not say "an associate of..." Instead? They dont because they cant because the "people familiar with his thinking" dont actually know or associate with the guy

You could technically count a cnn journalist pulling shit out of his ass as someone "familiar with his thinking" just because he read some articles and watched videos about the guy.

I remember when I first read that phrase. I had long disliked of CNNs way of reporting, but that was the final nail in the coffin, can't trust anything they say. Not even about sports.

My house is white. When I am home I am a source from inside the White house. When I pay the bills I'm a White house official. When I take out the trash I'm White house staff.

No, we just need to remove their protections to hide behind 'confidential sources' (aka usually their own imagination) and if they want to claim 'integrity' well they can fucking sign up en masse to some kind of certification scheme and then be picked off one by one as they breech the rules.
