By the way, the crying about "Fake News" by the lib-left elite is not new. It's been going on for over 2 decades already. http://www.breitbart.com/big-j...

When the Lewinsky scandal broke in 1998, the Clintons denied-denied-denied. Hillary Clinton even said that internet news needs a "rethink", and bemoaned the lack of "gatekeepers" whatever that means. http://www.freerepublic.com/fo...
And when she was running in 2016, her campaign sent out a newsletter saying that the Breitbart website did not have a right to exist. And it also suggested that if Hillary was elected, Breitbart would be shut down.http://dailycaller.com/2016/08/18/hillary-campaign-vows-to-destroy-opposition-website/
TLDR; The lib-left has controlled news for a long time via their media lapdogs. Thanks to the internet, anybody with an internet connection can break a story that the lib-left wants to bury. Do not expect the lib-left to go down without a fight. The next Democrat president, 4, 8, or however many years from now will rush in internet censorship ASAP. It may be under the guise of stopping "Fake News" or "Hate Speech" or whatever excuse, but underneath, it'll be the lib-left censoring conservatives.
