Yeah! Honestly, it’s like that. Certain sorts seem to love to tell Americans to check their facts and then, as supposed evidence, present articles from CNN or other Lamestream Media sources as evidence that the Americans are wrong.
And, of course, those Lamestream Media sources are so very careful about their fact-checking. They very much don’t want to tell something that the Leftists’ magisterium has decried as blasphemous or heretical. The cost to them would be too high.
Then, we must accept that this problem of “alternative facts” will continue. After all, Americans and the sorts who tend to vote Democrat don’t even have the same definition for many things.
