Ever since the election, the liberal media has been screaming about fake news. They even used it as an excuse for Hillary’s loss. In reality, it is the left which has a fake news problem.
The Business Insider reports:
The left’s emerging ‘fake news’ problem
The tale went something like this: A Jewish couple was forced to pull its child out of school so the family could “flee” town over fears stemming from “fake news” stories blaming them for the cancellation of a Christmas play.
Conservative news outlets had earlier seized on local reporting that indicated some parents believed a Pennsylvania elementary school’s production of “A Christmas Carol” had been shuttered over the Jewish parents’ alleged complaints over its line “God bless us, everyone.”
The idea the performance was canceled over the famous line — which the school denied — caused outrage and, as the story went, left the Jewish family so worried for their safety that they decided to skip town.
It hit all the desired notes for left-leaning publications and personalities. It demonized outlets like Breitbart and Fox News while supposedly putting on display the real-life consequences of “fake news.”
It was everywhere.
The only problem? The story wasn’t true.
Read the rest here.
Keep that in mind the next time someone on CNN is crying about fake news.
It’s a problem for the left, not conservatives.
