Washington Post Comes to North Dakota, Spreads Fake News in Senate Race

Last week newspapers across the country wrote editorials critical of President Trump’s war on what he describes as “fake news.” While it’s absolutely true that Trump’s derision is often self-serving, and his own veracity is spotty at best, the journalism industry hardly does itself any favors with nonsense like this.
