geeze you really shouldnt jump to wild conclusions. both sides get bad news. the difference ive noticed when debating republicans and democrats is that the republicans when given the evidence that refutes there point will usually agree or atleast concede some points. on the flip side, when the evidence is presented to democrats they usually start going to personal attacks or deflection and they dig there heels in even harder which ends up making them look completely foolish yet they will continue on down that path indefinetly. its as if no matter how much evidence i present it doesnt matter to them. for example, the decades of lying HRC has done that is on the record.

Both sides of the aisle have their "fake news". The funny part about it is the hardcore leftists think only the right are given fake news. I literally LOL at my desk every morning at some of these threads.
I think a major part of the problem specifically on this site is the blatant racism charges us Trump supporters have had to endure for the past year or so. It's ridiculous and to be frank is an all-time low partisan attack by the leftists of this site. It's one thing to hear MSM pushing the narrative that we're all racists or bigots. It's another when fellow posters on this site are calling you a racist over supporting a candidate. I used to come to ATS to get an unbiased view of political news since it's so hard with the MSM. Now, I don't even take this site seriously anymore. It's become a site to troll the trolls basically.

We do not need to censor "fake news". We just need to inform people so that they are aware of it.
What's funny though, is the calls from people on the Right for the FCC to get involved and revoke the licences of media outlets like CNN, MSNBC and such.
It is dishonest for anyone to say that the Left is the problem here, when the Right is engaging in the same push for censorship and violation of the 1st amendment.
I think all news should be allowed, and it's up to the reader to verify it's factual base. But when the MSM, (the main ones) are spreading bull#, it has a serious effect on the population as a whole. Most people aren't involved enough to vet their news, they just accept what they are told. So even though we at ATS might see through some garbage, most won't.
In that light, the MSM should be held to a higher standard and as of late, they are doing the exact thing they claim to be against.
how to police that, I have no idea.

i think that news story is fake news created by the right to stop the left from stopping fake news created by the right, about the left.... and vice versa...
this is just a fad. it will go away when they want to shift the public's attention to something else.
