Why does the term "fake news" bother libs so much? People can just do their own research, also they invented that term. Remember "faux news"?

Update:

Libs have called Fox news fake for years but now since we do it to CNN they lose their sh*t and say that we should respect the news? F*****ck outta here with that sh*t xD

    They dont want to accept that liberal rags dont report on Trump fairly and honestly. They are not seeing the world in new ways other than their 1960s view of how things should be.

    The amount of fake news is becoming worrying. It should worry everyone.

    The problem is that Trump isn't using the term "fake news" to refer to news stories which are actually false. That's what the term originally meant when it was coined in late 2016 to refer to false stories shared on social media. It meant stories which were actually untrue. That's not how Trump uses the term. When Trump calls something "fake news" most of the time the story is actually true. Instead, what he means is that the story reflects badly on him or his administration. Trump isn't trying to enlighten people. In fact he's doing just the opposite. He's trying to control what they think by convincing them that any story that he doesn't like is false. Why would anyone think that it's desirable to imbibe nothing but presidential propaganda?

    Because an attack on the free press by calling them fake news is actually an attack on free speech!

    Guess what reporters are? They're American citizens! By calling them fake news Trump is essentially saying they're all liars and only he knows the truth!

    I do not have a problem with the term fake news.

    I have a problem with the President calling ABC, CBS, NBC, WNBC, CNN, plus newspapers fake news, when they do not report what he is selling.

    Pointing out when he is wrong is not fake news.

    Are there stories that maybe not air on those network, yes, is that true about FOXnews, yes. All do stories that are wrong time to time.

    Fake news is make up crap, like the Clinton is holding a sex slave at of a pizza shop.

    Stories like these are false and only meant to confuse people who believe everything.

    These stores do more harm, if it's about a politician or movie/tv star or a queen. It does not matter what country.

    Calling stories you do not like fake news, is what I get upset about.

    They are true more than they are wrong.

    Depends

    The idea the American people have caught on to fact that most of the media carries water for the DNC lesses the impact of their propaganda. Partisans are not likely to relish the thought.

    Liberals have always been the ones to falsely accuse others. They are the cult of envy. False accusations allow liberals to take vengeance in the form of political, social and economic swag against conservatives who have done nothing wrong. All elections are advance auctions on stolen goods.
