    Fake News. It’s the fashionable new term for what Marxists used to call “false consciousness”: the notion that the proletariat is lured away from its true interests by capitalist press barons.

    But here’s the thing. Fake news, in the sense of stories that are made up, is every bit as blatant on the Left, and no less common.

    Twitter might have been specifically designed to encourage flash-mobs. False news is endlessly echoed, but retractions are ignored. Why? Because when you retweet the original allegation, you are advertising your tribalism, whereas no particular kudos attaches to a correction.

    Dan Hannan (the author of the article you quote) is a (UKIP-leaning) Conservative Party MEP and a prominent Brexiteer. He is therefore far from being an impartial political commentator and it is in his interests to suggest that fake news is a general phenomenon and nothing new. Regardless of whether - and in what form - fake news existed before, it is Trump and his acolytes who have turned it into a grotesque art form and used it to debase the modern presidency.

    Correction, that all started with Wild Bill Clinton.
    You Libtards simply do a Hillary, and project President Clinton's sins, onto President Trump.
    Remember it was president Clinton who turned the White House, into the Dirtiest Little Whorehouse in Washington.
    Then lied about it under oath, while being impeached.

    Thus it was the Dumbocrats and libtards, who fine tuned fake news and alternative facts, long ago.
