The ‘Game Of Thrones’ writer behind “Pizzagate” and “Fake News” said he was a poster boy for fake news in his time on the show.
“I know a lot of people will think I’m a conspiracy theorist, but I don’t really believe in conspiracies,” said author George R.R. Martin in a new interview.
Martin said he wasn’t afraid to tell “Parks and Recreation” co-creator Amy Poehler that he was the creator of “Game of Throne” and other books and series because of the “dangers of fake news.”
“I’m not a conspiracy theory guy, but there’s this whole thing out there that says that if you’re going to be the president of the United States, and you’ve been elected president before, then you’ve got to be a fake news guy, and there are all these conspiracy theories that are out there,” he said.
Martin, who won an Emmy for his work on “The Wire,” said he also told Poehler the show is a satire of fake News and fake News media outlets.
He said he would also like to make the argument that fake News outlets and fake news stories are actually the real news.
“Fake news is fake news.
They have a lot more money than they have people.
They can run this fake news thing with fake stories,” he told Poehlst.
“I think the media, particularly the left, really hates fake news and I think they think that fake news is a very destructive thing, but at the same time, they’re actually very effective at spreading fake news, because they get a lot people to click on those fake stories.”
