Will Facebook's actions against "fake news" be just a clamp-down on what’s fake or an unfair shake? That’s the question now that social-media behemoth Facebook has vowed to combat “fake news.”
Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein was certainly right when she said that “we do not have a voting system we can trust.” And her aborted recount in Michigan helped prove it, revealing that more than one-third of Detroit voting machines recorded more votes than voters.
In a recent interview, Barack Obama expressed the shopworn belief that America has not, by any means, “overcome the legacies of slavery and Jim Crow and colonialism and racism."
How many hateful acts are actually committed by “rightists”? So few, apparently, that leftists have repeatedly seen fit to fake them.
With an anti-establishment figure poised to assume the presidency, isn’t it time to put anti-establishment media in the White House briefing room? Other than sacrificing the .1 percent of positive coverage Donald Trump might otherwise get from the mainstream media, it’s hard to see a downside.
A list of supposedly fake news sources — which included legitimate conservative sites such as Breitbart, Red State, Project Veritas, and WorldNetDaily — is being used to discredit those who dare tell the truth.
When President-elect Donald Trump claims he would have won the popular vote had it not been for illegal voting, the media insist there’s no “documented proof” of widespread electoral fraud. When Hillary Clinton joins in the Jill Stein inspired recount in Wisconsin, it’s called justifiable.

In the wake of Donald Trump's stunning election victory, many leftists are complaining that there now are "two Americas." Not only is this lament nothing new, however, but having merely two Americas would actually be an improvement.
In perhaps the most tortured presidential answer since Bill Clinton parsed the word “is,” Barack Obama offered a response in a Friday interview that many say gives illegal aliens a green light to vote. Worse still, there may be reason to suspect he was fed the question in advance and gave a premeditated, Machiavellian answer.
