    incorrect political opinion is a far cry from making up fake stories, and passing them off as fact.

    Yup. That was the prevailing opinion. How exactly is stating, or printing an opinion the same as planting alleged news stories complete with made-up data, and quotes?

    How about the DNC cheating to make sure that Hillary got the nomination?

    Poor Bernie...didn't know what happened until too late.

    Then he sold out and endorsed Hillary after calling her "unqualified".

    That don't count?

    It was cheating and if you ain't cheating you ain't trying.

    When the polls are double sampling to get a desired result, when the margin of error is wider than the gap presented, when the margin of error is up to 5x wider than what is industry standard as acceptable results, and these people print the polls as indisputable fact while KNOWING FULL WELL that the polls are not accurate.

    That there were MANY PEOPLE POINTING THIS OUT THE ENTIRE TIME, and the results proved that those "fake people" we're correct... Let me guess, that only further proves either or both that :
    A) they were Russian agents anyway
    B) the fact that they were right is only further proof that they are fake.

    The media believed what they WANTED to believe.

    That Hillary was going to win and Trump had no chance.

    And what does that have to do with anything ?

    Opinion lives that predict Trump has no path to win, Nate Silver getting his predictions wrong, polls showing up to the last day a very different result from the actual ouch on Election Day... What that has to do with 'fake news'?

    It's silly and illegitimate to throw that into the same pot as the national enquirer running a completely made up story, or the web sites created for click bait with completely baseless 'news', just because the created tag line is drawing attention and selling advertisement clicks.
