Sources trying to pass themselves off as unbiased journalists is rampant. I believe, to many, that is the meaning of the term fake news. And it’s everywhere every day.
AGAIN......example PLEASE

The term seems to be reserved for opinion pieces or something that someone does not like.

HOWEVER, saying a legitimate new source or newspaper MADE UP NEWS or faked news is a very very serious charge

i will agree that the initial reporting was a bit aggressive by some but all that did that reporting have explained, apologized or what needed to be done almost immediately. I read all the reports and followed it pretty closely especially the lawsuits

AND AGAIN...it was never FAKE NEWS......Legitimate news sources will always acknowledge anything reported wrongly and if it was a mistake, will "own up" immediately. I suggest you read the accusations and responses to such. especially in the lawsuit

I am desperatrly trying to stay on topic but since I keep asking folks to provide some link or back up...I offer this on Covington and the quotes are from legal documents


"The suit claimed there were "no less than six false and defamatory articles" in the newspaper about the encounter, which had gone viral almost immediately.

In his 36-page ruling, U.S. District Judge William Bertelsman examined each of the 33 statements in question and found none of them to be defamatory and the vast majority to be quoting opinion, which is protected free speech."

We have long since lost the intent of the original thread which is how the Daily Sun is viewed as a news source. Thread has devolved into a personal and political discussion.

Thread closed...after cleanup of off topic and political posts.
