a us olympic fencer and muslim was held by immigration for 2 hours and blamed it on trump, when in fact she was held for an hour in a routine immigration action during obama's term.

it seems that none of the major news organisations who reported this bothered to check if what she said was true or even the actual date of when it happened. she is an outspoken critic of trump and she may have deliberately tried to give the impression it was down to his executive order.
The news media these days is incredibly sloppy and fails to check facts all too frequently.

others have checked and those that ran the story have not run any sort of retraction now the latest facts have come to light.

Stuff on the social media, particularly Twitter, provides newspapers and sometimes radio and TV with cheap and easy copy. Bad trend in journalism, IMO.

bob, it's the very definition of fake news, it is something that is untrue being presented as genuine news by main stream media organisation across the world. the story was carried by most big us papers and at least the mail over her and no doubt by other outlets, none so far have printed any sort of retraction as far as I am aware. they appear to have taken as fact the word of someone who is an outspoken critic of trump without checking a single fact. That is fake news and it is designed to put trump in a bad light. they dont need to make stuff up to do that according to many of the snowflakes.

although sometimes it actually gets to the truth far better than professional journalists. I agree there are a lot of conspiracy nuts on social media though.

a good example of citizen journalism in my view is the project veritas stuff that came out during the election. the stuff they recorded on the democrats is stuff that proper investigative journalists should have been working on, but for some reason weren't.

well that is debatable as they dont know as there has been no investigation. What is known is obama deported 3million people and I was told elsewhere that those deported by obama were violent criminals and someone else said they accounted for 5% of illegals which would put the amount of illegals in the US at over 60million. if 1% of those voted it would be 600000, that 6 times our army. if it was .1% that's 60% and only slightly smaller than our army.

Until there is a full investigation of voting in the states we will never truly know the amounts of people who shouldn't have voted voting. It has been proved it is not hard to get a voter registration card in america. Veritas filmed democratic coordinators saying they bussed people around voting booths.

I wouldn't be surprised to find that a significant number did vote illegally.

America and the UK need photographic voter ID to cut down the chances of voter fraud.
