TIN FOIL HAT: Washington Post claims Natural News is controlled by the Russian government

(NaturalNews) I had to interrupt my high-level meeting with Vladamir Putin to bring you this breaking story: According to the Washington Post, Natural News is working for the Russians to overthrow America's journalism with Russian propaganda.

Read the astonishing accusation via The Gateway Pundit, All News Pipeline or the Washington Times. The original story from WashPost is at this link. Already, even Glenn Greenwald from the Intercept is calling the WashPost a horrific example of shoddy, shady journalism.

Even more astonishing, according to the Washington Post, Natural News and a handful of other Russian-influenced websites overpowered the entire national media in this last election, achieving a position of total media dominance required to overrun the "truth" reported by the NYT, WashPost and CNN in order to hand the election to Donald Trump.

Yep, this is the new desperate theory from the dying "lamestream media" that has lost all credibility (and most of its readers). Myself, Alex Jones, Matt Drudge and a few dozen other people now control all information in America, you're being told, and we're all working for the Russians to spread completely false lies about Hillary Clinton (because she's actually a really, really nice person in excellence health, didn't you know?).

The Washington Post fakes so much news, the paper had to give back a Pulitzer Prize due to extreme journalism FRAUD

This might be a good opportunity to point out that the Washington Post had to surrender a Pulitzer Prize awarded to its celebrated reporter named Janet Cooke because she completely fabricated an award-winning story about a young heroin addict. As explained at, another news site the WashPost accuses of being "fake":

In a meticulous 2016 account of Cooke's story, Mike Sager at the Columbia Journalism Review dubbed her "the fabulist who changed journalism," and made a compelling case for her 1980 story about "Jimmy's World" as one of the first examples of "viral" journalism. The Post wanted a superstar young black female journalist, and Cooke delivered with a searing story about an 8-year-old heroin addict in Washington, D.C. named Jimmy, a "precious little boy" who had "needle marks freckling the baby-smooth skin of his thin, brown arms."

The story was so widely repeated, so influential, that Mayor Marion Barry's administration began scouring the city to rescue Jimmy from his hideous guardians. They couldn't find the boy because he didn't exist. Cooke made the whole thing up. (When city officials asked Cooke to tell them where they could find Jimmy, she refused, and the Washington Post invoked her First Amendment right to protect her sources.)

The hoax was exposed when the Pulitzer board bent its rules to nudge Cooke's local-news story into the national-news category, eager to bestow the very first Pulitzer Prize upon an African-American woman. Cooke submitted a resume to the Pulitzer board which included suspicious discrepancies from the resume she gave to her former employers at the Toledo Blade. When her Washington Post editors questioned her about these discrepancies, she finally confessed, "There is no Jimmy and no family. It was a fabrication. I want to give the prize back."

Maybe the Washington Post will now win a replacement Pulitzer Prize for its phenomenal fabrication of this story on how "the Russians" are running Natural News! Can I please attend the ceremony? Because I'd sure like to share a word of thanks from Vladamir Putin, my inside source on most of our breaking stories.

The Washington Post only discredits itself by invoking hilarious conspiracy theories everyone knows are completely fabricated

The upshot is that almost no one believes anything the Washington Post prints anymore, and it's stories like these that drive home the obvious fact that the Washington Post has no credibility on any subject at all. (Seriously, the Washington Post has become the National Enquirer, and the National Enquirer has become what used to be the Washington Post...)

As Zero Hedge reports:

The desperate flailing of a mainstream-media struggling through the five stages of grief continues as no lesser unbiased foundation of the fourth estate than The Washington Post pushes ahead with its "fake news, blame the Russians" narrative for why their candidate failed so miserably.

Citing "two teams of independent researchers" (who surely have a substantial libel litigation provision) who found "Russia’s increasingly sophisticated propaganda machinery... echoed and amplified right-wing sites across the Internet as they portrayed Clinton as a criminal," the Jeff Bezos-owned website names Drudge, Zero Hedge, and The Ron Paul Institute and countless other outlets among the "useful idiots" that true American patriots should be wary of.

The Washington Post goes on to laughably claim that pro-America websites that fought to publish the truth about Hillary Clinton's long history of criminal activity were part of an "online echo chamber" functioning as "part of the [Russian] propaganda campaign."

Because, you see, the left-wing "lamestream media" is NOT an echo chamber of Hillary Clinton talking points, we've been told. Nope, even though the Washington Post, New York Times, USA Today, CNN and MSNBC all receive their daily talking points from the same pro-Hillary source -- and they all say almost exactly the same thing every day, using almost identical words and phrases, they are not an "echo chamber" at all, you see.

So then, all these videos which demonstrate how the mainstream media is completely scripted must be fakes too then, right?

Note that you will NEVER see independent media news sites all saying the same thing on the same day, using the exact same words and phrases. That's because they are not centrally controlled like the WashPost, NYT, CNN, etc.

You are reading the REAL PRESS in America: Sites like Natural News (and hundreds of other independent, honest, high-integrity truth news sites

That's why the independent media is now the real free press in America. The dying "lamestream media" has nearly reached the point of irrelevancy, grasping at desperate conspiracy theories to childishly attempt to discredit their competition. What's next from the WashPost, stories of Natural News working with extraterrestrials? (Oh yeah, my editorial department is run by little green men, I forgot to mention that... they work really well alongside the Russian spies, too...)

The most astonishing part about all this is the realization that the Washington Post and New York Times now agree with the rest of us that they are irrelevant and powerless, having been dominated by independent media which they now desperately label "fake media" because they don't like the truths we're reporting.

"None of it is fake," writes Kelly Riddell of the Washington Times. "[We're] merely doing the job the mainstream media refuses to do."

She goes on to explain:

What worries me the most about fake news, isn’t that it’s fake, it’s that it’s being used by the left to try to silence opposing views.

The only problem with the [fake news] list [celebrated by the liberal media], was it included real news sites of which the professor simply didn’t agree. Conservative blogs, including Red State and The Blaze, were on the list, as was more centrist, but GOP-leaning Independent Journal Review (IJR). None of those sites are fake — they often just peddle in the real news purposely not covered by the mainstream media.

Almost everything the Washington Post calls a LIE is the TRUTH. Anything they insist is TRUE is probably a LIE...

We have now reached the point in America where pro-America journalists like myself are absurdly accused of being Russian puppets, while anti-American liberal journalists (who hate America but love communism) are said to be the only news authorities Americans can trust. The lamestream media, in other words, is now invoking tin foil hat conspiracy theories because they've lost the war of trust with the American people.

Nobody trusts the mainstream media anymore other than gullible, hypnotized leftists who live in "the Bubble."

When truth becomes "lies" and lies are proclaimed as "facts," you're living in 1984...

Orwell was right: War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.

The Washington Post is pushing lies as truth while attacking the truth because they don't like inconvenient facts. Prepare to see every information source that does not push the delusional lies of the state relentlessly attacked, censored and discredited.

It's all part of the revolution of awakening, my friends. There's no surprise in all this. The globalists are losing control and they're lashing out like the Terminator after he was dropped into that massive vat of molten metal. Here's what the mainstream media looks like right this minute:

Oh, and don't forget how the Rolling Stone completely fabricated its entire college campus "rape" story, either. When you're ready to read the REAL news, use, the #1 independent news search engine (use it for research, updates, citations and more).
