There’s been plenty of talk about “fake news” since the election. In fact, some people in politics and media have even suggested that fake news contributed to Hillary Clinton’s stunning loss.

But what about the supposedly legitimate media. Aren’t they to blame as well?

In his newest Firewall video, Bill Whittle puts it all in perspective.

Here’s a partial transcript via Truth Revolt:

Bill Whittle’s Firewall: Fake News

If there is one thing you can ABSOLUTELY count on in modern American politics, it is this: every time a Progressive Democrat invokes the Founding Fathers and American Freedom, that will be immediately followed by a proposal that reduces American Freedom and is an insult to the Founding Fathers.

On December 8th, 2016 the most corrupt politician in Washington made a speech at the dedication of a portrait of the second most corrupt person in Washington:

“AFTER THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION…”

Here it comes.

“IT’S WELL KNOWN THAT BENJAMIN FRANKLIN WAS ASKED WHAT FORM OF GOVERNMENT THE NEW NATION WOULD HAVE. ‘A REPUBLIC,’ HE REPLIED, ‘IF YOU CAN KEEP IT.’”

Now on to the antithesis of everything Benjamin Franklin and the Founding Fathers stood for.

“THE EPIDEMIC OF MALICIOUS FAKE NEWS AND FALSE PROPAGANDA THAT FLOODED SOCIAL MEDIA OVER THE PAST YEAR…”

Now that part IS true. Many videos showing Hillary Clinton to be a warm, trustworthy and tough Presidential candidate flooded YouTube, Facebook and all the rest throughout 2016..

“IT’S NOW CLEAR THAT SO-CALLED FAKE NEWS CAN HAVE REAL WORLD CONSEQUENCES.”

Like causing liars, traitors and felons to lose Presidential races.

“THIS ISN’T ABOUT POLITICS OR BIPARTISANSHIP.”

Of course it is.

This is Whittle’s key point:

Maybe all this fuss is to turn us away from the realization that EVERYTHING we hear from the main stream media, from the earth is dying hysteria to mom-and-pop bakeries in Oregon is ALL fake news, reported by, presented by, edited by and spun by the mainstream media, which has devolved into the publicity department for the Democratic Party in General and the progressive movement in particular.

Watch the video:

One thing is sure. Instead of figuring out that the American people are onto them, the media has doubled down since the election, which means there’s a lot more fake news to come.
