Operation Mockingbird is a large-scale program of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that began in the early years of the Cold War to manipulate and control American news media organizations for propaganda purposes. It aimed to collect intelligence by bribing journalists and institutions around the world and shape public opinion on a wide range of issues.

"We'll know our disinformaton program is complete when everything the public believes is false."
Mockingbird Never Ended

News has ALWAYS been corrupt
"You furnish the pictures and I'll furnish the war."
Woodward & Bernstein were the reporters that broke the Watergate scandal. They are widely credited as being brave heros who inspired a generation of journalists. But the truth is, they got their information served up to them on a silver platter by the crooked FBI, as part of a coordinated effort to illegally interfere in American politics and oust Richard Nixon. It's been over 50 years since Watergate, and these guys still in the business of uncritically reporting whatever the crooked FBI wants them to.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is facing up to 175 years in prison for publishing truthful information about the wars, and about the horrendous corruption happening in America. Because they were unable to smear, intimidate, or blackmail him into silence, the United States government charged him with an "Espionage Act" crime - falsely claiming that he hacked the military to obtain the documents he published. A HUGE violation of his basic Human Rights, and a dangerous attack on Freedom of Press. But the American News Media doesn't care, and won't ever tell the truth about it, because the CIA doesn't want them to.
News isn't Truth. News is programming.

Mockingbird In Action
Here is a compilation of reporters from all over the country reading the exact same lines as each other (sounding exactly like a bunch of mockingbirds). This happens everyday on every channel - most consumers just don't realize it. TV News Anchors are not journalists. They are actors/actresses reading whatever lines show up on their teleprompter. They don't care about truth. They care about being part of the club. Which is why every single thing they say should be taken with a grain of salt.
"Fact-Checkers" Are Liars
But she did. Sanger didn't use the specific words written on that meme, but what she did say (in the real quote) meant the same thing. "Fact-Checkers" are technically right about her not saying those exact words, but they are splitting hairs - misleading everyone into thinking that she never said anything like that - so people will believe that it's already been debunked, and ignore it.
