More fake hurricane-weather news

This morning, FOTM‘s DCG posted a video showing how the Weather Channel broadcasts fake news about Hurricane Florence by exaggerating how strong the wind is.

A reporter pretended to be unsteady on his feet, buffeted by the supposed strong wind. Alas, the video camera showed that right behind the reporter were two people casually strolling by.

I had a GIF made of the video in case YouTube takes it down:

But it’s not just the Weather Channel that is engaged in fake weather news.

CNN, too, faked its Hurricane Florence reporting, as shown in the pics below (source: Mark Dice).

The first pic is from CNN’s live footage of Anderson Cooper standing in the supposed deep flood waters up to his waist.

Notice, however, the camera man standing in shallow water just a few feet away.

Here’s a pic of the same flood waters taken from a different camera angle showing the same camera man and another CNN employee standing in shallow water.

Note: Snopes says the pics are actually of Anderson Cooper reporting on Hurricane Ike in 2008. If true, it just goes to show Cooper and CNN have been engaged in fake weather reporting for at least 10 years.

But it wasn’t just Anderson Cooper faking weather news.

CNN’s senior diplomatic correspondent Michelle Kosinski also engaged in fake weather news.

Here she is, paddling in a canoe, in seemingly deep flood waters.

Alas, her lie is revealed when two men casually slosh by, showing that the “deep flood” is only ankle deep.

If the MSM fake weather news, what else are they faking?

And yet, they are not even the least bit ashamed that their lies have been found out.? They will still feign shock and horror that nobody believes them anymore. The Bible speaks of these kinds of people.

“What else are they faking?”

Everything else…starting with what they believe is important to for us to know, to what the Media Matters memo dictates as today’s DNC-prescribed narrative.

Yes. Just imagine coming to work and being handed a script to read. That’s it. If you have to do an interview your victim has been placed under stress and all you have to do is spin whatever they say to match what you’ve been told to do. There is absolutely no way that any of this is about truth. They would never run anything without careful vetting just in case it weakens their overall lie. So the act of watching these liars is an exercise of looking in a mirror and sticking one’s head in an echo chamber.

Here’s one I just saw: https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/200-women-christine-blasey-ford-163743024.html She apparently has *200* women from her high school class who will vouch for her on the Kavanaugh party story (which he now denies ever even attending). Prior to this news release, the “news” folks were wondering how the right had released the letter in defense of Kavanaugh so quickly unless they had known he were going to get accused (he had it done when he was appointed to earlier federal courts, idiots.) So my rhetorical retort to them is, how did SHE get *200* female classmates to do the same for *her* in… Read more »

Brett’s confirmation is nothing more than Kabuki Theatre. It’s complete BS.

I pray to God that the discrepancies in her story are exposed in Monday’s hearings. I’m so SICK of the DEMORATS and their perpetual temper tantrums.

ENOUGH!!

The whole thing is so childish and boring. I don’t know how they can stand whining to each other day after day. They have no morals or scruples. They are totally unashamed.

Their standard basically is, “if it works, it’s OK”. They don’t care if its true or not. This is orchestrated hatred, pure and simple. Those who fall for this are being led down the garden path.

I lost count of the times they’ve been caught red-handed. There was the “war correspondent” footage from the sound stage. There are clips alleging to belong to current events that are actually of past events. There was riot footage claimed to be in Russia but was actually in Greece (with the Greek letters to prove it). They are simply horrible. I keep reminding myself that there is no difference between these over-paid liars than someone working in Mc Donald’s (although the service worker is probably honest). It’s just a job and they will say whatever they are told to say… Read more »

My brother-in-law works for Homeland Security, in VA,/D.C. and is a National Weather observer. My in-laws live on the coast, VA/NC line. Other than the expected high waters/flooding (GEEZE LOUIZZEE…at high tide every “normal” day, their back yard is a MARSH)….these winds were over-predicted and over-reported from the get-go in this particular area. They had to make a fetching news report, I guess….you know….ratings and all……high water is not so interesting unless you can get live shots of abandoned dogs and cats and people on roofs…a’la Katrina…..So—-dramatic shots of “wind” might do…… (??????)

This really fries me, too bad Anderson Cooper (he who purports himself to be a paragon unto himself) doesn’t just drown in the water he is squatting down in! I am so sick of all these lyin’ dogs. Everyone needs to just tune them out — stop watching them.

The dope in the blue windbreaker is just that . . . a big dope. Incredible to watch two normal adult men stroll along wearing cutoffs, and tennis shoes. This said dope is I would bet at least one quart on testosterone!

Great article. It really makes me laugh to just watch these over and over and over again!

I presume most of us are sick and tired of the constant and never ending lies from the MSM and the traitors in our government. Oh no, the citizens are not to know the truth! When I recently saw the video clip of Walter Cronkite stating he is proud to sit at the right hand of Satan, that did it for me: https://youtu.be/AopkvtAnxuU Cronkite was the same age as my father……..born in 1916. You all remember, he was voted “The most trusted man in America”. I grew up trusting our government and what Cronkite said. My dad and I used… Read more »

That was nicely put. I’m somewhat older than you and remember that era well. I suppose that many were naive, but many not as naive as some would like to think. We certainly knew that “our” government lied to us. Probably no other generation in history received a dose of propaganda as large as that served during WW2. All that aside, I know that my father, who served all through WW2 from Africa through Germany (and beyond), understood reality from propaganda. I used to discuss it with him. What I see as the biggest change is the ability to be… Read more »

It is expected neurotic queer Anderson Cooper reporting fake news, he’s been fake for so long until coming out of the closet, I cannot image there are people following this “poster boy” and the network. As far as Wally Cronkite, usually when people are so old and feeble and in the pages of the forgotten they reveal their truth that, he has been sitting at the right hand of Satan for a long time, while playing tag with the good, the bad and the ugly. Go ahead and die old man, burn in Hell, there’s a cauldron waiting to cook… Read more »

We were warned that the flood waters might be polluted with CNNers.

Anderson making fool of himself is legend. It’s a worthy cause though for an annual salary of 12+ million.
