This is proof that left wing media is 'Fake News.'

    THe OP makes you look rather unprincipled. Everyone should be opposed to such anti-democratic practices.

      Yeah I don’t know what the fix is. It just isn’t yet more sources, we have too many now & it does nothing to keep them in check because they all belong to so few & the ones that ARE free are often so radical that they are near useless even when they have IT right. Jefferson believed the fix was as many news papers as the community would support, I think we’re past that because corruption has simply changed the rules of this particular part of the big game. I’d like to see ownership labels on media products showing the chain of ownership up to the final umbrella.

      I don’t care Mr. Steve.
      I don’t look at them as journalism and journalists. I look at them as a propaganda machine for the left wing Democrats. They are merely editorials with fiction background.

      I see Facebook as very liberal. I see this as backfiring against the liberals.

    All one has to do is look at all of the trumped up “News” that the Left pushes out to ascertain that Liberals pander in “fake news”, propaganda and hyperbole aimed at pushing their agenda.

    They have to be loosing sponsorships. No advertiser can’t afford to advertise during a fake news broadcast… no matter the accusations and rumors…there are possible concerns.
