I had to laugh when the "mainstream" media began making a fuss about the alleged epidemic of "fake news." My immediate and uncontrollable reaction was: "Are we to be spared nothing?!"
After all, as Antiwar.com's longtime readers know, these are the very same people who were spreading the Bush administration's "talking points" as if they were facts in the run up to the invasion of Iraq. They know this because we spent years debunking them. Here are just a few samples:
Iraq's "mobile biological weapons" – debunked here.
The biggest lie – that Saddam Hussein had 'links" to al-Qaeda and the 9/11 attack – is debunked here and especially here, where we exposed evidence that the media was covering for the Bush administration.
