So how is it that the people who always scream "fake news" are the people who fall for actual fake news?

Our neighborhood got hit with the free sample issue of The Epoch Times the other day, a Falun Gong publication. The fact that just about every article on the front page is critical of China makes its propaganda motive pretty obvious from the start.

Everyone relax, this isn't a problem. Consumers of right-wing media are known for being adept critical thinkers.

Cool. Now investigate Charlie Kirk, Mark Dice, Ben Shapiro, Yashar Ali, Jeff Teirdich and Bill Mitchell. I'm about 80% sure they're all bots too.

The refrain of Trump calling news he doesn't like "Fake News" came in response "no you" after real news about the fake news (that he sometimes amplified) that helped him win In 2016
