    Like ive said before the lefties are rank amatures when i comes to this stuff compared to the righties.

    One reason why fake news is so pervasive, so easy to spread, and so hard to debunk is that it almost always has some sort of basis in reality. For example, real-life end-of-life consultation becomes "death panels." Because debunkers have to explain the complex reality in detail, the simpler but false version never gets dislodged. But it's not often that we get to see just how the fake-news sausage gets made.

    Meanwhile the candidate is distracted from campaigning so he/she can explain why the story is false.

    The left forgets their "street" roots when it comes to this kind of stuff..

    They need to study Karl Rove, Rushbo, Savage, Hannity and the rest of the right wing pundits to find out how the game is played...
