The press is in a snit (still) over Donald Trump's press conference. Trump took exception to, and had a verbal altercation with, CNN reporter Jim Acosta. Trump called CNN "fake news." Acosta took offense, and loudly demanded an opportunity to reply. Trump shut him down.
The press has been in a lather about "fake news" since the November elections. They contend it's a (right wing) threat to truth, democracy, the American Dream and, very likely, the next sun rise. We are finding more and more examples, however, that the "fake news" problem is one that has deep roots in the credentialed press -- with its layers and layers of editors, fact checkers, and lawyers.
