Suddenly everyone has discovered the existence of "fake news" – and, oddly, it's the purveyors of fake news who are screaming the loudest about it.

The mandarins of the mainstream media have no standing to accuse anyone of spreading fake news – because they're been the major source of it for many years.

Remember all those "news" stories on the front page of the New York Times and the Washington Post that proclaimed with certainty that Iraq had "weapons of mass destruction"?

And more recently, we've had a flurry of stories about Russia supposedly infiltrating our electrical grid – which the Post had to retract. And how about that story claiming that over 200 websites, including and the Drudge Report, are "Russian propaganda"?

Our "news" media has been the War Party's handmaiden for as long as anyone can recall – and we've been debunking their war propaganda for over 20 years.

But we can't continue to do this vital job without your financial support. We depend on you, our readers, to help us fight the fake news epidemic and bring the truth about our foreign policy to the American people.
