The debate in the USA rages on.  Is fake news any news not approved of by ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, maybe FOX?

Here is an Article trying to make the point:

 On Wednesday, Portland, Ore. police arrestedTerrence Patrick Bean, who has been charged with two felony counts of having sex with a minor last year. This man is not just any old guy accused of having sex with a 15-year-old – he's a big-money Democratic donor and liberal political activist with connections inside the Obama White House. Bean raised more than a half-million dollars for Obama's 2012 re-election campaign.

Although, I don't think the above story should have any reflection on Obama, I do think it would have been used against Trump or Bush.  However there is no way to prove it.

By acknowledging there is fake news and it should be blocked, isn't that an assumption that adults can not be trusted to verify and acknowledge there on news?  I personally would like to make the choice.  I am willing to accept some others may find other News Sources that I disagree with.

What are your thoughts on what is "News", is some of it fake?  Should we attempt to regulate this?  If anything?

Let's talk about it.

I hear that almost all the J-Schools are far left.
That might have something to do with it.

Most of our Universities have become far left. IMO. We have also lost track of "What Facts Are" vs. Commentary and Spin.

There are _conspiricy theories galore on that subject.
I seem to remember that when the Soviet Union fell for a time the files of the KGB were open to scrutiny.

Things were found...
McCarthy was right.

this is just another attempt to rob us of our individual rights. this is censorship, pure and simple.

Started by our Current President Obama, after his party lost with Hillary losing to Trump. The MSM, couldn't control the race.

this has been a slow creep, that started a long time ago, way before my time.

That is true. There were just different names for it before.

there will be more. pizza gate may break them. it looks like they may be forced to do too much too fast. it is becoming obvious.

I like to laugh, watching the MSM try to explain the election when they didn't understand what was happening during the election. hahaha

Without trust, you can't lie. The west's propaganda machine has failed because of hubris. You can't con without confidence. They told far too many obvious lies and now it's over. Trust cannot be recovered. Now they will shout their lies louder and become more obviously nasty as people continue to reject the lies.

Very Interesting and I see the truth in your comment. I have a hard time trusting... "Again". So do others.
