Bloomingdale’s surrendered to the left after “offending” multiple journalists with a new shirt design that simply read “Fake News.”
The drama started when Allison Kaden, a reporter for PIX11 in New York, tweeted a photo of the shirt to Bloomingdale’s on Twitter and denounced the shirt as neither “funny or fashionable,” and claimed that the silly design “further delegitimizes hard working journalists who bring REAL news to their communties [sic].”
Bloomingdale’s immediately backed down, and pledged to remove the shirt, noting that the company apologizes for “any offense we may have caused,” and thanked the triggered journalist for her accusatory tweet.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention and we apologize for any offense we may have caused. We take this feedback very seriously and are working quickly to remove this t-shirt. Again, thank you for taking the time to alert us.

This, however, was not enough to save the clothing company from the ire of more triggered left-wing journalists.
Baltimore-Sun reporter Pamela Wood castigated the clothing brand, claiming that they misunderstood their grave offense, and that their t-shirt design is, in fact, destroying democracy.
Hi, @bloomingdales. Apologizing "for any offense we may have caused" is not a sincere apology. This is not about journalists' hurt feelings. This is about damage done to our democracy when your brand joins in perpetuating and celebrating the idea of "fake news." Please try again.

Meanwhile, the majority of Twitter users seem to find the shirt funny, and consider the retailer’s reaction to be pathetic. One user noted that they would be better off escalating its production, as “This outrage never works out the way they want it to.”
Remove it?? Shoot…you'd better ramp up your production of that shirt because you're about to get a massive number of requests for it. This outrage never works out the way they want it to. https://t.co/mctAiguVUE

Another user mocked the journalists’ apoplectic tweets, telling Blomingdale’s that “Removing the shirt offends me,” and asking the brand “Will you take this feedback seriously? Will you apologize to me, and work quickly to reinstate the shirt?”
Removing the shirt offends me. Will you take this feedback seriously? Will you apologize to me, and work quickly to reinstate the shirt?

Users continued to pound the brand for acquiescing to the left, one condemning the brand for running its “business based on social media outrage” from triggered journalists and noting that the very journalists who are now offended in fact helped coin the term.
Hi @Bloomingdales. Don’t run your business based on social media outrage which are usually anyway short term and are mostly not from your real clients. Besides, real journalists are proud to denounce FakeNews. In fact, they created this term against Trump’s FakeNews of 2016.

Other users simply joked that a better shirt design may simply be “#LearnToCode.”
Have you considered a #LearnToCode shirt for next season's line?

Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War
The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.
The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.
Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.
Trump just said we fought Operation Desert Storm in the jungles of Vietnam, but please tell us again which Presidential candidate lacks cognitive functions.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.
A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.
Operation Desert Storm…in the jungles of…Vietnam. https://t.co/QEr698vhJ4
