    Opinion panelists are not journalists. Most of them are lawyers. Their obligation is to their client and their client is a political party. Take what they say with a grain of salt and don't confuse presented opinion with proclaimed fact.

    Fake news doesn't arise when an opinion panelist expresses an opinion. It arises when an organization presents fiction as fact. CNN doesn't do that. Alex Jones does. CNN is widely regarded as credible. Alex Jones is not. CNN counts its viewership in the millions. Jones counts his in the thousands.

    Trump can't control American media access to the Whitehouse the way that Harper controlled Canadian media access to Parliament Hill. The power and legal dynamics are different in the US.

    Trump's angry late night tweets won't help him. Nobody cares what he thinks of Meryl Streep's acting .The majority of Americans want Trump to retire his twitter account. Even his (soon to be ex-) supporters have had enough of the nonsense.

    Trump will be sworn in with the lowest favourability rating of any president in modern history.

    A BBC reporter is now reporting there has been independent confirmation from European intelligence sources, that the Russians have several compromising videos with audio on Donald Trump.

    We shall see how this all ends up, but Trump is starting out as an unpopular President and isn't doing much to improve it.

    It is in Russia's best interest to have America look bad to its western partners especially. This way Russia can branch out, trade, gain greater ties with nations and become a lot more relevant in the world. Attacking NATO members will be WW3 and Russia will become nothing, along with much of the world. Neo-cons like Hillary and many republicans as well would like to create WW3 or another cold war and not stop it by pushing Russia.

    Powerful rich people and globalists will win and the people will lose. We are already losing very badly from Bush onto Obama and it may already be to late.

    We can also all agree now that fake news is a huge story today and not a useless topic to talk about as some might have thought here. It is being talked about all over the world and in Canada as the mainstream media and elites fight back the alt media and trying for censorship. Again this can also be painful to the portfolio as financial information could be filtered to you in the future leaving you without all the information.

    This is just from today and it goes to the top as Trump will be the president.

    Trump has his own interpretation of what fake news is...........anyone who doesn't recognize his "greatness."

    Trump has no intention of trying to please the braindead sheep-he will try to improve the economy but the chances of those who oppose the guy accepting reality are slim and none-no matter what the guy does.

    "those who oppose the guy" are the majority.

    Again, this speaks to a tendency towards false equivalence among those who adhere to the alt-right. Buzzfeed's failure to adhere to journalistic standards is not equivalent to sites like infowars and zerohedge which manufacturer lies.
    CNN told all its viewers where to find the entire report. Then it claims moral superiority for not reporting what it reported.
    We can not know things as they are in themselves, but only as they appear to us.

    ^

    CNN did not provide a link to Buzzfeed, but they mentioned Buzzfeed on air. They did not provide the details of the Trump dossier on air
    or online.
