Fake Russian Hysteria of the Year Award goes to the British MSM for The Skripal Story (h/t ClintTorrez)

For those who are completely unfamiliar with the story, please check out: The Russia Poison Story is WMD 2.0.

Fake Climate Scare of the Year Award goes to Nature for Quantification of ocean heat uptake from changes in atmospheric O2 and CO2 composition

The study that launched a thousand scaremongering headlines turned out to have basic mathematical errors that made the study’s conclusions utterly useless. Surprise, surprise!

Fake Pentagon Budget Story of the Year Award goes to The New York Times for The Misleading Claim That $21 Trillion in Misspent Pentagon Funds Could Pay for ‘Medicare for All’ (h/t ardyen)

The Old Grey Presstitute tells its gullible readers that the story about the $21 trillion missing from the Pentagon is “misleading.” The professor who actually conducted that study begs to disagree. See missingmoney.solari.com for more details.

Fake Death of the Year Award goes to CNN for Russian journalist Babchenko, critic of Kremlin, shot dead in Ukraine

In case anyone needs to know How to Fake Your Own Death this is a great case study! It’s also a great example of how the MSM are stupid, credulous dupes for the security services who regularly plant fake stories in the media but rarely admit to it.

Fake Reporter of the Year Award goes to Der Spiegel and Claas Relotius for his award-winning fake news (h/t Mielia)

The list of things this reporter completely made up and pawned off on his credulous editors is almost as unbelievable as the awards that he won for that fake reporting, including the European Press Prize (2017), the Deutscher Reporterpreis (2013, 2015, 2016 and 2018) and CNN’s Journalist of the Year. You can’t make this stuff up.

Fake Story of the Year Award goes to Donald Trump for Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price… (h/t am1618)

Well it was good enough for the annual Syria strike but as it turns out the “interim” report from the OPCW concluded that no nerve agent was found at the scene (exactly as Robert Fisk reported the week after it didn’t happen). Oopsy. Well, at least the military industrial contractors got to see 110 of their implements of death used up in the meaningless display of force afterward. Ca-ching.
