News With Ed -- January 11, 2017
Did Obama create a ministry of propaganda under the guise of combatting fake news?
There's no doubt in anyone's mind, Republican or Democrat: there's been a proliferation of fake news as of late. But this new era of news and information isn't a story Americans know in full. Mike Papantonio, host of “America's Lawyer,” joins “News With Ed,” saying: "Most Americans don't know that two nights before Christmas, Obama ... created truly the closest thing to a ministry of propaganda. Now, he felt like he could do it because of all those fake news stories."
Did the media ignore favorable inquiries at Trump's presser?
Donald Trump has said Obamacare will be repealed and replaced, the construction of a wall will start before a deal is reached with Mexico and recently turned down a $2 billion business deal in the Middle East. None of this is getting attention in the mainstream media. Carter Turner, democratic strategist and Beverly Hallberg, president of the District Media Group, join “News With Ed” to discuss.
