Re: Fake news ??????

If they define fake news precisely they might find that almost all sources of general news vomit copious amounts of genuine fake news. Mostly this is done for ratings and to have 'an edge'. Also, how much nominally factual news like the latest murder in Southwest Atlanta (a notoriously crime ridden area for decades) is over-hyped as major crime wave when it was 2 drunks having an arguemnet with knives or guns.
