    How fake news is faked

    Post  sinister_midget on Wed Apr 05, 2017 1:50 pm

    Here's the headline:

    Steve Bannon removed from National Security Council in shakeup

    Sounds pretty bad, huh? Bannon no longer trusted? Trying to separate themselves and maybe eventually get rid of him?

    Six paragraphs down (about 6 paragraphs lower than most low information voters will ever see) there's this:

    Bannon originally served on the committee as a check against Michael Flynn before Flynn was ousted as National Security Advisor, a top White House official told NBC News. However, Bannon only attended one meeting and felt he was no longer needed in that role after the selection of H.R. McMaster as national security advisor.

    McMaster, who Bannon wanted in the role, was given authority to reorganize the committee when he joined the White House, according to NBC.

    The change also downgrades the role of Homeland Security advisor Thomas Bossert.

    A senior White House official told NBC this was not a power struggle. The official said the White House was bringing back more of a George W. Bush-era-type NSC. The council will be more streamlined and the decision making more deliberative, the official said.

    I don't know much about Bannon. I don't like or dislike him. But it's clear the government press wants him to be an anti-semite (one of the few things I know about him that is absolutely false) and a fascist (another one of the few that I can definitely identify as a lie) so they can tar Trump. But I can tell you he isn't going anywhere any time soon. Which is only going to continue upsetting the state-run media.

    What else would one except from CNBC, sister station to the über-balanced BSNBC and property of the Imaginationland caretakers at NBC?

    Some more fake news from the same culprit.

    Private payrolls grew 263K in March vs. 185K est.: ADP

    Here's the important part:

    Companies added 263,000 jobs for the month, ADP and Moody's Analytics said. That was well above the 185,000 expected from economists surveyed by Reuters and also better than the 245,000 reported for February.

    The February number was revised significantly lower, however, from the originally reported 298,000.

    Now, what's wrong with that?

    In the first paragraph they tell you this, the 263,000 number, is a calculation put out by Moody's and ADP.

    What they don't tell you is the 298,000 number for February wasn't the official number. What was official was 245,000 that it was "lowered" to. In other words, Moody's and ADP guessed one number and the government release put it lower. It wasn't "revised" at all. The first number wasn't an official preliminary number. The official number was 245,000 and it will go through its first revision in the next couple of days. The government revises each month's numbers once a month. So February's number, released for the first time in March, has never had the chance to be revised.


    What they're trying to do is equate what's going on with Trump to what happened under Obama bin-Lyin'. But even that isn't close.

    What happened previously is Moody's would estimate jobs at 155,000. A couple of days later the official first number would come out at 215,000 and everybody would cheer. Then the first revision the number would drop to 145,000. (A similar effect happened every month of reporting for 8 years.) That would be a revision from the first official guesstimate, not a revision from Moody's numbers. Plus it would barely get mentioned in some places and completely ignored in others. If it got mentioned at all you'd certainly never hear about the second revision which would lower it even further (maybe 110,000). They always quit revising after the second time. Which is good for them so they wouldn't have to openly say that 215,000 they said the first time dropped to 89,000 on a third revision.


    In this case Moody's made a guess and the one official number was lower. Not a revision, the first release. The first revision comes this Friday (I think) when the first government guess for March will be officially released. The new one could be lower or higher than Moody's. But Moody's is only a guess based on whatever they measure.

    Will February be revised lower? I don't know. I might be revised higher. We'll know when it happens. But CNBC is being less than honest by reporting real numbers in a way that makes everything look different than it really is. (They did that under Obammy, too, but did their magic to make it look better than reality, not worse like they're doing now.) You can also bet if the official number for March is reported lower than 263,000 jobs, CNBC will call it "revised lower" to hide the truth.


    Maybe it's put together by the same people that manipulated the 9-11 recording when George Zimmerman called about Trayvon Martin. It's the same fraudulent parent company.

    Here's Bannon on the first reported fake news article.

    Steve Bannon Leaves National Security Council After Susan Rice Takedown

    President Donald Trump’s Senior adviser Stephen K. Bannon has exited his role on President Donald Trump’s National Security Council, claiming that his mission is complete.

    “Susan Rice operationalized the NSC during the last administration. I was put on to ensure that it was de-operationalized,” Bannon said in a statement to the Wall Street Journal.

    The council suffered a tumultuous transition after Trump’s first National Security Adviser Gen. Michael Flynn resigned less than a month after he took office and was replaced by Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster.

    “General McMaster has returned the NSC to its proper function,” Bannon said in his statement. Other sources told reporters that Bannon was part of the council to monitor Flynn’s activity in the early days of the Trump administration.

    Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and Obama allies were furious that Bannon was allowed on the council, even though he rarely attended meetings. Rice was exposed earlier this week by reports revealing that she requested the unmasking of key members of Trump’s transition team.

    A White House source confirmed to Breitbart News that Bannon will retain his security clearance in the West Wing. Other reporters noted that Bannon could still attend NSC meetings even though he was removed from the National Security council principles committee.

    Quite a different story from what SeeNBC? wanted to create.

    Maybe SNL is so unfunny nowadays that they're trying to recapture that aura in everyday "news" stories. Sort of like The Onion without the credibility you might say.
