‘Fake News!’ Is An Actual White House Strategy
White House official Sebastian Gorka openly admitted on Monday that the Trump administration’s favorite claim of “fake news” is a strategy. And it’s one the White House will continue to use until the media learns its lesson and understands that their “monumental desire” to attack the president is wrong.
In other words, the hysteric cries of “fake news!” coming from the White House will cease when the media stops reporting the actual news.
Gorka should know all about “fake news,” though, As a former editor for Breitbart, he’s probably an expert in it.
But Don’t Expect The ‘Fake News’ Claims To Slow Down
Trump and his White House have engaged in an open battle with the media. And this is their favorite battle cry. It is a desperate attempt to discredit factual reporting that reflects poorly on their administration. They hurl the accusation at mainstream, credible outlets like CNN and the New York Times, often with no evidence to back their own claims. Even numbers and statistics are targets of the “fake news!” label from Trump, if he doesn’t like them.
