"Fake News" is a all a bit postmodern for me.

Where do people actually get access to "Non-fake news". If all your information about the world outside your four walls comes through the internet, then everything is tainted with someone else's interpretation. Even the cameraman decides where to point his camera, often obscuring the stuff that's going on beside/behind him. You also have to rely on translators to correctly translate languages you don't understand. Your notions of truth all depend on where you 'click' on your screen.

Where does one find the unassailable, gold-plated, unvarnished "truth" on the internet?
I see your point but that would apply to everything - TV news, papers, history etc.

There is few 'unassailable, gold-plated, unvarnished truths' anywhere, I would say.

When an article is described as right wing, you're on the right track.

Stop being so snowflakey. The post was a wider view on your interpretation of it.

Cue howls of righteous anger.

Alex Jones will be streaming Trumps Fake News Awards apparently. Who would you like to get one?

More cash for Jones. Does anyone really buy this joker? Gimme all your money and I'll make you suspicious. He's the Oprah of conspiracy nuts.

There are people who took out subscriptions to the NYT and WaPo as soon as Trump was elected.

They know that fascists always aim to subvert the media first, often by threats and bullying.

There will by more subscriptions now. Thanks, Donald, for the burlesque and the advertising. Maybe if you actually tried to do your job you would get more respect.

Krugman?

Well, he had the Nobel Prize for Economics on his mantelpiece, and you are still ranting on a website.

Who will have the last laugh?

Jeff Flake deserves the last word:

"It was a year in which a daily assault on the constitutionally protected free speech was launched by the same White House, an assault that is as unprecedented as it is unwarranted.

The enemy of the people was how the president of the United States called the free press in 2017. Mr. President, it is a testament to the condition of our democracy that our own president uses words infamously spoken by Joseph Stalin to describe his enemies."

LOL-if Trump was Stalin, Flake wouldn't be living in Arizona.Much more likely to be liquidated or freezing his nuts in an Alaskan gulag.

Buzz feed the only ones so far with any cop on in reacting to this with their "we were robbed" headline.

They got no nominations.

Rest Flailing about like a flurry. Man the sensitivity of the little ego is gas to see. The guardian is a right laugh.

I can't find CNN reaction to this on their site, can you post the link to the "flailing about like a flurry"?
