    The media has an obligation to challenge every statement Trump makes that is fake

    That does not make them fake news

    Trump believes those fake news sites

    He believed Obama was not born in Hawaii
    He believed thousands of Muslims were dancing in NJ
    He believes vaccinations cause autism

    If Trump wants to sue media outlets, by God that is his right. He's highly unlikely to win, because libel is damn hard to prove in court, but he should go that route if he wants to.

    But trying to bring criminal charges against journalists (for their "journalism", whether accurate or not) would be a move straight out of the dictator's playbook.. Not cool, and I'm frankly shocked that anyone but a drooling, blithering idiot would support such a thing.

    You can say that with a straight face? That is definitely a lie.

    Definition of " fake news":
    Any information that is reported that doesn't make DT look good.
    How dare they!
