    At this point I'm beginning to think that they're ALL fake...

    Perhaps not fake but very biased on what they report and how they report it.

    No. CNN and the like spin news.
    They report events and then tell their audience what to think about those events.

    It's not journalism, it's programming, propaganda, public conditioning.
    But it"s not 'fake news'.

      It seems like pure evil brainwashing.

      I find this answer very interesting. I think that if we think about it -- loving something that is pure factual, just does not happen. Loving an emotive opinion piece makes sense. One does not love a dog, one loves what the dog does. Love no matter??

    Always question the news source - CNN, MSNBC, ABC.
    Read information garnered on a subject, the latest "reports", off the wall opinions, then reach a conclusion. With the bias shown during the election, I wouldn't trust any main stream outlet to report anything unbiased.
    Its funny, there was a takeover of the Trump transition HQ, and the only ones reporting about that were "fake" news sites. Couldn't find one thing on any of the mainstream news outlets.
    Also remember the "fake" news about hillary killary being sick - which was true, and the main stream media missed it.
    Listen, read from at least 4 "news" sources, then reach a conclusion.
    Fake vs biased - about the same thing.

    CNN is owned by Turner Broadcasting System, a division of Time Warner.

    Any news organization that has corporate overlords has to be looked upon carefully. Corporations have agendas, and the days of news being unbiased are long gone.

    But fake news? Actually making up stories? No. Not fake news. Just not particularly unbiased news.

      Golly, could have sworn they thought alt right was whacko when they said something was wrong with hillary killary.
      On sorry, the alt right was correct, and CNN was just covering it up.
      Surely not fake at all........

      There's a difference between not being able to verify a story, and just making sh!t up. Not running a story is not fake, it's biased. Clearly not something you're interested in understanding, since "hillary killary" is all you've said for months.

      Huh, wonder why they tout "fake news" sites without "verifying".
      Or is verification only needed when it doesn't suit their agenda?
      The last is a much more likely scenario.
      Biased is fake, omission is as good as a lie.

      You're right. Deliberate omission is a lie. I think it unconscionable that liberals, in their lust for control, would "drag the hag "  hillary, to the finish, no matter how physically unfit she is.

      "Drag the hag!" I missed that one. What a chant! The Democrats should have used that at her rallies, that's better than "lock her up"

    The initial list of fake news sites was drafted by a far left liberal professor.

    Meet leftist prof who wrote 'hit list' of 'fake' news sites
    Trump-basher 'feminist' blacklists WND, Breitbart, Blaze, O'Keefe's Project Veritas … 1aLl17P.99

    This is just a call to censor conservative sites that weren't already blocked as "hate speech" by liberals who say they are love so any contrary view must be hate.

    I would say it is unknown. Because they did not say or confirm anything that they are real or fake.

    There is a huge difference between fake news and news bias/slant. As a journalism major, I learned to validate sources of information and then validate the sources of those sources. CNN is not fake news. There is media bias there for sure but there's also huge media bias with the right wing media, too. The trouble is people will believe what they want to believe so they will discredit the news channels that aren't producing news they want to hear--on both sides. However, people often label CNN as the "liberal" media as though it is a bad thing. Media by its very nature MUST be liberal because conservatives by nature censor what they deem to be unacceptable. The media  must  deliver news that is truthful, and the truth must be kept pure, raw and real without any censorship. If I am not going to trust one side over the other, I would not trust conservative media.
