Hillary Clinton issued a stern warning on Thursday against the proliferation of fake news, branding it an epidemic with “real world consequences” that must be addressed in order to protect the nation’s democracy.
The point being that the left really, really, wouldn’t like it if “news” were properly checked for compatibility with the universe.
Wealth is as unequally distributed as the 19th century? Bollocks, we’ve an entire welfare state that redistributes wealth and income and you’re not counting that, are you? Minimum wage doesn’t cause job losses? Nonsense. 14% in poverty? Bullcrap, that’s before the things we do to alleviate poverty. Climate change might be a problem but it’s not an immediate nor catastrophic one.
And that not one penny on the debt? You weren’t going to close the deficit so you were going to increase the debt.
If the “news” were limited to what is explicitly factual the left wouldn’t have an election platform.
