Free Beacon writer notes that ‘fake news’ became a crisis only after the election
At Twitchy by Brett T. --
There’s a problem with “fake news,” and not only the obvious one.
Members of the mainstream media who certainly consider themselves purveyors of “real news” and nothing but are concerned that people are falling for conspiracy theories and satire posted to social media outlets.
Conservatives, on the other hand, have taken the “fake news” brand and run with it, using it to highlight slanted and downright false news stories put out by mainstream outlets. And why not? Liberally biased networks and newspapers have managed to maintain their status as respected sources despite attempts to alter video on the sly and rephrase quotes to fit their narrative.
