Mainstream Media Calls Competing News “Fake News” as They Try And Silence Them

Today the so-called “mainstream” media is full of left-wing, pro censorship types that would make even China proud.

Washington Times reporter, Kelly Riddell addressed this very phenomenon in a recent column saying, “What worries me the most about fake news, isn’t that it’s fake, it’s that it’s being used by the left to try to silence opposing views.”

CNN’s  writer Brian Stelter  warned about “fake news,” but in his rant, he included right-leaning Fox News and alt-right website Breitbart in his list, Riddell wrote,

“Breitbart is anti-media. Much of Fox News is anti-media. Fake news websites and some right wing blogs are anti-media. These outlets provide a different audience with a different set of facts about the world. But too often what they’re really selling is opinion and conspiracy theory masquerading as fact. These sites, these outlets, they present themselves as the opposite of traditional news sources, the antidote to mainstream media.”

Free speech in this country is under attack!
