Fake News websites: A growing problem & what it means in today’s world


  1. Basically…if it comes from CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, or anyother major international news network…it’s probably fake news.

  2. It’s interesting that the phrase “fake news” never entered our vernacular until the current POTUS was elected. If I recall, the current POTUS claimed that Barack Obama was born in Kenya (is that fake news?) and that Ted Cruz’ father was implicated in the JFK assassination because of a picture published on the front page of the National Enquirer which the current POTUS claims is a “valid source of news”.

    So let’s just say that “fake news” is in the eye of the beholder. If it’s not what you want to hear, it’s “fake”. That’s what the country has come to; the United States of Breitbart.

  3. Great story and some great reader observations; maybe a better barometer of any global “ins” at election time would be to ask “am I better off than I was X-amount of years ago?”…if not, start grilling any challenging candidates’ camps directly with your own concerns to see if voting for them could change anything.

  4. True much. Trump said it right, CNN is fake news. But as a matter of fact, all liberal media is fake news. Rather, I was reading Huffingtonpost today and it didn’t even look like news. Total propaganda.
