“If you don’t stop lying, you’ll grow up to be a BBC reporter”

"If you don’t stop lying, you’ll grow up to be a news reporter” is a saying that has been printed on many images. The meme usually mentions a specific organization that the writer believes is fake news, such as CNN or BBC.

“Motherly advice...if you don’t stop lying you’ll grow up to be a reporter for CNN #FakeNewsCNN #MAGA #FakeNewsAwards” was posted on Twitter by The Infidel on January 9, 2018. “An addition If I may, If you don’t stop lying you’ll grow up to be a CNN reporter, or worse, a democrat” was posted on Twitter by John McKinney Jr on February 24, 2018. “If You Don’t Stop Lying, You’ll Grow Up To Be a #CNN Reporter! (@CNN)” was posted on Twitter by ICE later on February 24, 2018.

“Mother to daughter: ‘if you don’t stop lying you’ll grow up to be a BBC reporter’” was posted on Twitter by Grey Panther on May 13, 2019. “Overheard at the school gates conversation between mother and child. IF YOU DON’T STOP LYING YOU WILL GROW UP TO BE A BBC/SKY/C4 REPORTER !!!!!!!!” was posted on Twitter by John on May 24, 2019. “Just told my young son if you don’t stop lying you will grow up to be a BBC reporter...” was posted on Twitter by John on July 18, 2019. “’If you don’t stop lying’, my mammy used to say, ‘you’ll grow up to be a BBC reporter’” was posted on Twitter by Francis Goodfer-Kemping on December 9, 2020.

“If you don’t stop lying, you’ll grow up to be a news reporter” was posted on Facebook by Timothy John Sebastian O’Connor and also on Facebook by Jeff Fenske on November 10, 2020.

“If you don’t stop lying, you’ll grow up to be a fact checker for Facebook” is a later saying.

Let me fix that for you #MAGAt:
“If you don’t stop lying, you’ll grow up to be a #FauxNews reporter”
If you watched s/thing other than Fox, you’d realize how much you’re being lied to.
Sadly, you cant’t handle seeing your biases challenged.
A few pics for you since you can’t read

I really wish I could claim was mine. However, I saw it on Fb and need to share it. Another is going her young daughter a very serious lecture. The daughter looks shamefaced.

True. We have a media who supports anybody other than the people. Usually related to financial benefit, rather than the people’s benefit.
