I just figured I'd start a thread where OBVIOUS "non-news" items are reported as news from any source. My criteria have to be that the information provided is trivial or superficial and focuses on the optics of public appearances or unsourced speculation.

(CNN)With chants of "shame" and "end family separation," protesters shouted at Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen as she dined at a Mexican restaurant in Washington, DC.

Following around minor cabinet secretaries and intruding on their ability to eat some damn food is not clever and it is not "resistance" either.

neither is it germane that it was a Mexican restaurant because the influx of false asylum claims are mostly Guatemalans and Hondurans and Salvadorans.....who are looked DOWN upon by most Mexicans. These asylum seekers are viewed as racially inferior "Indios"

‘At Least During the Internment …’ Are Words I Thought I’d Never Utter
I was sent to a camp at just 5 years old — but even then, they didn't separate children from families.

"At least during the internment of Japanese-Americans, I and other children were not stripped from our parents. We were not pulled screaming from our mothers’ arms. We were not left to change the diapers of younger children by ourselves"

.........................

Japanese Americans were not interned, only Japanese nationals were interned, along with German nationals, Italian Nationals, and citizens of countries who were at war with us.

One of the protestors at the Mexican restaurant is a DOJ paralegal. Probably they were working on the Russia investigation and they sent her out for street tacos.

How many organizations let their employees go out and publicly protest the boss's instructions? I predict she is in the Open Borders Division of DOJ

One wonders: are half the viewing public as dumb as a hammer? Or do these legacy media firms just have so much money to waste that they don't need "ratings?"

One thing I've noticed during the recent upsurge in corporate media horseshit is the amount of gullible idiots who allow themselves to be emotionally manipulated by them, and fly off the handle with hysterics at the first fake news trigger words without bothering to check fine details.

All the idiots burned by fake or 4 year old "caged baby" pictures need to learn to check the source.

The Time magazine crying toddler picture literally has the mother's ass cropped out of the original photograph as she is patted down just coming across the border. That is willful editing of the picture to misrepresent the situation.
