The left wants to ban all media and speech that doesn't fall in line with their beliefs.
No. You are wrong.

Here's a prediction.
Look next year for "news" organizations to get a .news tag on the websites and for any news site that doesn't meet their criteria, get a .com tag.

What happens if a website distributes fake news? They are flagged and a warning message pops up on the screen. That's all. Some people are making false news stories on purpose and publishing them. There needs to be a way to tell how reliable the information you want to get is.
In the end, an alternative website might end up distributing what could be considered fake news simply because they are willing to speculate on stuff. Someone like me likes that aspect and I am willing to go to sites that I believe are genuinely trying to promote their perspective. Warning me that some of the news on there is false is a point well taken, but I'll still go check it out.
Think of it this way: ATS already flags threads that are portraying factually false information. It is the right thing to do. ATS doesn't use this for political gain, however. That is why I disagree with letting a left-wing extremist make the list.

They don't need to be banned they need to be labeled as tabloid because apparently too many people can't differentiate.
