There are certainly a number of ways to define the “fake new” genre in this day and age, thanks to the wide-ranging ability of Americans to be heard.
The mainstream media has been inundating us with ways to discredit those with whom we disagree for years, all falling under this “alternative facts” or “fake news” moniker. They’ve told us that only they conduct business with truth as currency, and if you’re not listening to them you are at risk for disinformation.
They’ve told us that Russian “bots” were part of the problem. That turned out to be false.
They’ve told us that only their fact checkers are accurate. That is also demonstrably false.
This whole “fake news” thing is so convoluted with opinion, that it would be foolish, perhaps dangerous, to put faith in wha the media is telling you about the issue.
What we do know, for certain, is that we cannot get to the truth through ignorance.
Someone should tell that to CNN’s Ana Navarro.
Star CNN personality Ana Navarro rolled her eyes and filed her nails as a conservative guest Steve Cortes described innocent Americans murdered by illegal aliens.
Steve Cortes: You can do your nails. You know who can’t do their nails are people killed by illegal aliens who’ve been allowed to stay in this country because of leftist policies that people like you promote in so-called sanctuary cities.
Navarro then started screaming at the guest saying, “I don’t care what you have to say.”
And, just in case you had an inclination to witness the bratty, petulant, dismissive drivel for yourself:
CNN’s Ana Navarro sighs, rolls her eyes & ***files her nails*** as guest describes innocent Americans murdered by illegal aliens.

If this is what passes for “journalism” today, maybe we should stick to the “fake” news.
