Kleenbreeze: I appreciate your valuable feedback. Let’s recall that “fake news” is merely an overused buzzword created by Trump and Putin to spread their fascist propaganda, empowering dictators/authoritarians worldwide to crack down on, and kill, journalists. The term “fake news” originated when Russia interfered online with the 2016 election to make Trump the puppet of Putin in the White House — and it worked “beautifully” as the U.S. Fake President might say. Moreover, in the USA we have a free and independent press per the First Amendment (which isn’t first by coincidence). Remember, totalitarian rulers always attempt to shutter and discredit the press in order to facilitate crushing any dissent with an iron fist. Thus I’ll take press freedom over fascism any day. How about you?
