One of the media’s recurring laments used to explain Trump’s success in the primaries, is all the unprecedented attention and coverage the New York billionaire gets for free from the press due to his “shock value.” According to NYT calculations, Trump has received about $1.9 billion in free advertising equivalents. As of today, thanks to a curious attempt at satire by the Boston Globe, one can probably round that up to $2 billion.
This morning, in a world where increasingly more media outlets turn to The Onion as a thought leader, the Boston Globe published a satirical front page predicting headlines about a Donald Trump presidency one year from today, alongside a “Stop Trump” editorial.
The fake front page will be the lead of the Globe’s Sunday Ideas section and “is a work of political satire and commentary produced by the Globe’s Editorial Board, not the newsroom,” Globe Editorial Page Editor Ellen Clegg wrote in an email.
The banner headline on the fake page, dated a year from Sunday, reads: “Deportations to begin, President Trump calls for tripling of ICE force; riots continue.” The page includes full, realistic articles about Trump’s actions as president (full page below).
The main story includes mentions of an Attorney General Chris Christie, and Fox News’ Megyn Kelly tweeting from a bar because she’s been placed on a White House black list. Other stories on the fake front page include “U.S. soldiers refuse orders to kill ISIS families” and details such as new libel laws targeting “absolute scum” in the press. Another story is about how Trump had offended the Chinese first lady by naming his new dog after her.
An editor’s note at the bottom of the page explains why the paper chose to create it. Here is the video summary:

“This is Donald Trump’s America. What you read on this page is what might happen if the GOP frontrunner can put his ideas into practice, his words into action. Many Americans might find this vision appealing, but the Globe’s editorial board finds it deeply troubling,” the editor’s note reads.
An editorial on the following page urges the GOP to stop Trump.
“The satirical front page of this section attempts to do just that, to envision what America looks like with Trump in the White House,” the editorial states. “It is an exercise in taking a man at his word. And his vision of America promises to be as appalling in real life as it is in black and white on the page. It is a vision that demands an active and engaged opposition. It requires an opposition as focused on denying Trump the White House as the candidate is flippant and reckless about securing it.”
The editorial goes on to note the controversy surrounding Trump, including his “winks and nods” to violence at his rallies. “If Trump were a politician running such a campaign in a foreign country right now, the US State Department would probably be condemning him,” the editorial states.
The editorial ends with a warning that Sen. Ted Cruz, who is currently rallying Republicans behind him as the only candidate who could stop Trump from securing the GOP nomination, could be even more dangerous.
And while we commend the Globe’s imagination, we wonder how many people actually change their minds as a result of such a media stunt, especially people who may wonder when comparable “hypothetical” headline pages will appear showcasing life under all the other potential presidential candidates and who may wonder if this is not just the latest example of media bias. And speaking of that, recall this amusing incident from the $70 million 2013 sale of the Boston Globe to billionaire John Henry from the NYT, when as the Boston Herald then reported that a conservative San Diego media mogul alleged that he outbid Henry for The Globe and that the management of The New York Times did not accept his offer because they preferred to sell to someone who would continue the “liberal” editorial slant of The Globe. Mission accomplished?
Here is today’s Globe’s front page (pdf).
The Boston Globe, a newspaper that routinely prints fake CDC vaccine propaganda as “news,” now openly admits it is nothing but a fiction rag. A Sunday edition of the paper goes “full cuckoo” by literally fabricating fake headlines and news story hoaxes, then publishing them under The Boston Globe banner as if they were real. Small text on the second page admits it’s all fake!
The fake Boston Globe front page featuring fabricated scare stories about Donald Trump comes off as a tin foil hat collection of paranoid conspiracy theories married with a laughably pathetic act of credibility suicide by the once-respected paper.
Donald Trump, of course, is the most outspoken vaccine critic of the 2016 presidential elections race. Back in 2012, he stated in a Fox News interview that he “strongly believes that Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are linked to exposure to vaccines.”
A little over two years later, his concerns about vaccine safety were confirmed by none other than Dr. William Thompson, a top CDC scientist who publicly admitted to taking part in an actual CDC conspiracy to fraudulently alter scientific evidence linking vaccines to autism in African-American boys.
In late 2016, CNN moderators tried to destroy Trump’s credibility by questioning his criticism of how too many vaccines are given all at once to children at too young an age. In his answer, Trump laid out the most compassionate and reasonable explanations on vaccines that has yet been offered by any candidate in this race:
Autism has become an epidemic… Because you take a baby in, and I’ve seen it, and I’ve seen it, and I had my children taken care of, over a long period of time, over a two or three year period of time, same exact amount, but you take this little beautiful baby, and you pump — I mean, it looks just like it’s meant for a horse, not for a child, and we’ve had so many instances, people that work for me, just the other day, two-years-old, two-and-a-half-years-old, a child, a beautiful child went to have the vaccine, and came back, and a week later got a tremendous fever, got very, very sick, now is autistic. …I’m in favor of vaccines [but] do them over a longer period of time, same amount, but just in little sections. I think you’re going to have — I think you’re going to see a big impact on autism.
Even when The Boston Globe pretends to print REAL news, it’s still FAKE news
The Boston Globe, meanwhile, has been obediently attacking the VAXXED documentary film, falsely claiming the film is about Andrew Wakefield when it’s really about Dr. William Thompson.
Other CDC propaganda published by The Boston Globe includes a hilarious article entitled “Mark Zuckerberg gets his baby vaccinated. Debate ensues.”
Now, instead of just printing vaccine industry propaganda and CDC lies pretending to be news, The Boston Globe has gone all out and just openly admitted it is a fake newspaper that publishes fictional HOAX news.
Why are none of us surprised to hear this?
Boston Globe says Trump is a murderer of families… and also the entire stock market will crash, yup yup!
The fictional front page of The Boston Globe attacking Trump fantasizes about President Trump ordering U.S. soldiers to murder ISIS families. A sidebar graphic on the right column of the Boston Globe’s fake news edition shows the Dow plummeting from over 16,000 to under 10,000 under a Trump presidency, and a loony tunes tin-foil-hat article steeped in desperate paranoia declares “Curfews extended in multiple cities.”
At the same time The Boston Globe is publishing all this fake HOAX news under its masthead banner, the pathetic paper refuses to publish any real stories that actually matter. Nowhere in recent memory at the paper do you read about:
• How the EPA is a criminal organization that legalized the spreading of toxic industrial waste on U.S. farms (biosludge).
• The truth that vaccines injected into children still contain the toxic heavy metal mercury, which is a known neurotoxin that damages the brains of children.
• How so much of the vaccine science has been faked by companies like Merck, whose managers ordered its own scientists to commit scientific fraud to trick the FDA.
• How the entire regulatory regime under the Obama administration has crucified real scientists and science whistleblowers who tried to expose the criminality, fraud and corruption of the USDA, FDA, EPA and CDC.
• How the CDC is private corporation operated under the illusion of Naval law, complete with its top criminals wearing military costumes to spout “official” vaccine propaganda during every false flag outbreak. See the CDC exposed by this AntiCorruption Society story.
• How as many as 98 million Americans were injected with cancer-causing primate viruses under the CDC’s polio vaccination program that has since been memory-holed off the CDC’s website.
Real news, fake news… who can tell the difference at The Boston Globe?
The hilarious upshot of all this is shockingly apparent: It’s impossible to tell any difference between real news and fake news at The Boston Globe… because it’s ALL just state-run propaganda even on a “real” news day!
In deciding to print this fictional Trump fantasy edition under its masthead, The Boston Globe has just made a laughing stock of itself. Before this, we were merely ignoring The Boston Globe… now we’re ROFL at it. This kind of delusional fiction fantasy published under The Boston Globe banner is enough to make any respectable journalist still working at the paper want to bury their head in the sand from sheer shame. When journalism schools gave students lessons on ethics and credibility, they never imagined a mainstream paper like The Boston Globe would abandon all credibility and go all-in with fiction parading as truth-to-be.
Hopefully this loony tunes idea will spread up and down the entire East Coast so that both the Washington Post and New York Times will also print their own fictional fantasy editions of their papers, too. (As if they aren’t already…) In those editions, they’ll have Donald Trump raping baby goats… or maybe even an account of illegal aliens raiding the White House and beating Trump to death with backpack leaf blowers. (Yeah, I just said that. Read it again.) Apparently nothing is out of bounds for these newspapers that have now gone “full retard” in their attempt to stop the one man who might actually expose the truth about vaccines (and loads of other things) if he becomes President.
Make no mistake: This is the vaccine regime hard at work, operating in full desperation mode
Witnessing how the media went into full berserk mode to try to silence the VAXXED documentary by engaging in criminal threats against film festival organizers, I have no doubt that much of the effort to destroy Trump comes from his stance on exposing the fraud and criminality of the CDC, EPA and FDA. These criminal regulatory regimes will stop at absolutely nothing to hold on to power, and once-great papers like The Boston Globe are apparently more than happy to commit credibility Kamikaze to destroy themselves in all-out attempts to dislodge Donald Trump from his current position of electoral dominance.
Now the bigger question in all this is: Where does Donald Trump stand on GMOs? For the record, Ted Cruz is a Monsanto sellout, Hillary Clinton is the Bride of Frankenfood, but Bernie Sanders is pro GMO labeling and makes the most sense so far on the issue of GMOs. (Go Vermont!)
If The Boston Globe really wanted to publish a fake news edition, by the way, it didn’t have to go through any special trouble to put one together. They publish fake news as real news on a daily basis!
EVERY DAY IS A PARODY NEWS DAY AT THE BOSTON GLOBE.
