Sigh: Fake News Headline Almost Triggers War With North Korea

These media Jews are going to wind up getting millions of people killed if they continue with their nonsense and inaccurate reporting – likely driven in this case by an insatiable greed and eagerness to generate clickbait revenue (the Chinese were probably just panicking due to their deep ties with the Pyongyang regime).

Lying about literally everything under the sun is expected (the parasites just can’t help themselves), but when the possibility of nuclear war looms on the horizon, perhaps a bit of fact-checking should be required.

Just imagine if Ivanka Trump had seen the below headline – she would have had an emotional breakdown and demanded that Daddy do something ASAP.

And then I guess it would have been time to say goodbye to Japan, South Korea, and tens of thousands of American soldiers stationed within artillery/missile range of the Korean DMZ.

From Zero Hedge:

As expected – and feared – during the annual “Day of the Sun” celebration parade (celebrating the birth of the nation’s founder), Bloomberg blasted a headline that Chinese news agency Xinhua reported that North Korea has fired a projectile.

  • NORTH KOREA FIRES PROJECTILE, MEDIA SAYS: XINHUA

On its website, Bloomberg immediately picked up the story, and ran with “North Korea Fires Projectile Media, Says Xinhua” (at a url which still reads: “https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-04-15/north-korea-fires-projectile-media-says-xinhua“)

However, it appears that the headline scanning algos made a collosal error, and that Xinhua interpreted events quite incorrectly as it was, as CBC and Reuters reports, the appearance of a new submarine-launched missile at the parade for the first time:

  • NORTH KOREA SUBMARINE-LAUNCHED BALLISTIC MISSILE SEEN AT MILITARY PARADE FOR FIRST TIME: RTRS

North Korea displayed its submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBM) for the first time on Saturday ahead of a massive military parade in the capital, Pyongyang.

State TV showed images of the Pukkuksong-2 SLBMs on trucks waiting to be paraded in front of leader Kim Jong-un.

Immediately after, Xinhua – and Bloomberg – rushed to issue a clarification to avoid what may be a military confrontation.

  1. The idea of permitting “freedom of the press” sounds good in theory but in practice has been a disaster. The so-called free press does not inform or enlighten the public, it is used as a weapon to promote a hostile alien agenda.

    I hate (((democracy))) and all of its “freedoms”. With freedom comes responsibility, and the press needs to be held responsible for its crimes.

  2. Trump’s absolutely unprincipled behavior regarding Russia and Assad means the US is wide open for attack.

    The Israelis won’t give any meaningful warnings and the FSB will now go silent. Anything the Chinks pickup will be hidden from daylight.

    Anyone in the ME sympathetic to Assad meaning Shiites and Alawaites and Christians won’t trust the CIA.

    Expect a big attack end of summer.

  3. 1969, On the contrary, we don’t have freedom of the press. We have a PC press. Its “protectors”, aka screamers and thugs, keep out opposing views and discussions through censorship and blackmail.

  4. Antitrust laws were supposed to stop these media conglomerates from existing. But look at (((who))) is supposed to be doing the enforcement. Media should serve the needs of the greater society in any case.

  5. “These media Jews are going to wind up getting millions of people killed if they continue with their nonsense and inaccurate reporting.”

    Nobody outside the CONUS pays much attention to the U.S. news services anyway. I get all my news from RT, RI and even the Beeb. Hell, U.K. Telegraph is more trustworthy.

  6. People keep telling me, “Don’t blame the kikes! It’s not just the kikes”………but it IS.

    It’s the KIKES. It’s ALWAYS been the kikes.
