From the same network that brought you Rathergate and Saddam’s mobile biological weapons labs

In a slideshow piece entitled Don’t get fooled by these fake news sites, CBS News – the network that brought you Rathergate and Saddam Hussein’s non-existent weapons of mass destruction – lists as a fake news website.

“The site is connected to Alex Jones, a radio host and conspiracy theorist who has alleged the Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax,” states the blurb accompanying a screenshot of Infowars.

In reality, Jones put out a video in which he made it clear that he didn’t think the Sandy Hook shooting was a “hoax”.

The other fake news websites listed in the same category as Infowars include ones like Real News Right Now, which admits on its own “about” stage that all stories on the site are “satire”.

Also listed is The National Report, which contains a disclaimer on its site that reads, “All news articles contained within National Report are fiction, and presumably fake news.”

Also included is the Onion, which is the most well known satirical news website on the Internet.
CBS News is effectively blacklisting Infowars by including it amongst websites which are known to be or admitted to be fake news outlets.

This is ironic given that CBS is notorious itself for spreading fake news.

In 2004, CBS’ 60 Minutes produced documents critical of President George W. Bush’s service in the Air National Guard in 1972–73. Despite heavily pushing the story, the documents turned out to be complete forgeries and the scandal was so embarrassing that it forced veteran news anchor Dan Rather to resign months later.
