The major media's lies of omission, biased journalism, and outright fakery shouldn't surprise anyone.

They invented and promoted the very Term 'fake news' and then when our commander in chief snatched it away from them and began using it truthfully they lied again and accused him of inventing it.

So what else is new?
S'yeah, how dare they care about more than one headline a year!
Also, this just in, Brazil fires still roughly equivalent to previous years, despite the scary media headlines in practically all free media.

This is absolutely not good, mind you, but if the strongest argument is "this is nearly, almost, kinda like twice the lowest amount of fires in history whole six years ago", you're in the business of selling fear.

wildfires are natures way of cleansing itself; old growth giving way to new growth

I鈥檓 saddened to hear this today. I care more about the Amazon than some old building. I wish there was something could be done to stop the fire, but I have to ask if the fire is naturally caused or man made. Forest fires are beneficial to the environment by releasing nutrients into ground and allowing new life to start.

The Amazon Rainforest is over 2 million square miles (over 5 million square kilometers). That's about half the size of the WHOLE USA. To say that "the Amazon Rainforest has been burning for 3 weeks" is stupid, inaccurate and just a way to manipulate, appealing to the emotions instead of stating objective facts. There is no way in hell that the "WHOLE" Amazon Rainforest "has been on fire" (as implied in the OP). Such a huge forest is bound to catch fire somewhere, but it's not like the whole thing is burning. I'm all for protecting the Amazon forest and suppressing any man-made fires within it, but I'm just sick and tired of all the manipulation of news from every corner, left, right, liberal, conservative, etc, etc... Can't we just stick to objective, non-misleading FACTS please...?

[@542387,drymer] apparently 80% being burned. Unclear whether natural or man made:
Quite true. Some media coverage but not much
