Who Are You Calling Fake, You Fake?

Liberals get cross when Trump accuses parts of the press of peddling fake news at the same time as they deride as untrustworthy the reportage of right-wing media sources. I get comments whenever I share anything from a right-wing source along the lines of “As soon as I saw it was from **** I knew it would be a total fabrication.” I expect conservative Facebookers get exactly the same comments if they dare to share something from the Guardian or similar.

Personally, I believe all news media is suspect and bias. I am a life-long Guardian reader but I still have to sift out the facts from the liberal spin. It is better to be a cynical reader of all shades of opinion than a gullible reader of only the media that says the things you like to hear.
