Let’s do a couple more.

1. WAPO BLAMES BORDER PATROL FOR DEATH OF 7-YEAR-OLD MIGRANT

No, they didn’t. The entire premise for the daily caller even claiming they did was because of their headline “7 year old girl taken into border patrol custody dies of dehydration, exhaustion”

They didn’t blame the border patrol. They stayed a fact that she died while in border control custody.

The daily caller calls this a “misleading headline” for stating the facts. Even if it was misleading, a misleading headline is not fake news. Everything in that article is completely accurate.

2. 2. CNN AND THE HILL SPREAD RETRACTED SEXUAL ASSAULT CLAIM AGAINST KAVANAUGH

No they didn’t. They reported on an allegation made to the committee. The daily caller says they failed to mention the accuser’s retraction. What are they claiming is a retraction? A tweet from someone whose username is the same name of the accuser. Yep. A random tweet.

You are straight up lying now.

Is that the best you can do to rebut this story.

That's truly a despicable effort.

Do you think posting lies makes this story go away?
lol what the fuck are you talking about? Both of those links above go directly to other daily caller articles. You have to go to two separate daily caller articles before getting to any actual links

You appear very desperate.

Just to clear this up.

Here's the actual links from the Daily Caller:

ABC News

Yes. That proves my point. That tweet is not spreading any conspiracy theories

Saying that there are conspiracy theories out there is about as close as the daily caller can get to their claims

The Root:
Neither of those are conspiracy theories. Those are facts.

I am no longer interested in disproving your lies.

You have a Merry Christmas.
I don’t think you know what a lie is....

All 32 fake news stories are linked in the article in the OP.

Perhaps you could discuss any of the 32 fake news stories listed, even if it is to dispute they are not fake, instead of your usual trolling BS.
If those are the worst you can find...not too bad considering the thousands the president tells, and then says fake news
Some of them are actually fun y because they’re so silly and insignificant.

These are the top 32 fake news stories of 2018.

Nearly everything the fake news MSM publish is fake news.

These 32 fake news stories are by far not the only stories out there.

As 2018 comes to a close, it’s time to review the year’s worst cases of media misquotes, misleading narratives, major corrections and straight-up fake news.

While last year’s fake reporting largely occurred during the media’s relentless pursuit to prove Russian collusion, this year’s list is much more varied. However, some themes emerged: stories about then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the U.S. border were routinely flagged for misinformation.

Without further ado, here is the list of 2018’s worst examples of fake news:

1. WAPO BLAMES BORDER PATROL FOR DEATH OF 7-YEAR-OLD MIGRANT

2. CNN AND THE HILL SPREAD RETRACTED SEXUAL ASSAULT CLAIM AGAINST KAVANAUGH

3. BOSTON GLOBE CORRECTS LIZ WARREN STORY — MAKES HER LESS NATIVE AMERICAN

4. NYT ACCUSES NIKKI HALEY OF PURCHASING EXPENSIVE CURTAINS

5. MEDIA STILL BLAMING REPUBLICANS FOR STEELE DOSSIER

6. CNN ANALYST PUBLISHES DUBIOUS REPORT ON ADDITIONAL KAVANAUGH ALLEGATIONS

7. CNN ACCUSES TED CRUZ OF BEING AFRAID TO APPEAR ON THEIR NETWORK

8. CNN SPREADS FALSE STATISTIC ON SCHOOL SHOOTING

9. NBC SAT ON INFORMATION THAT CONTRADICTED KAVANAUGH ALLEGATIONS

10. MCCLATCHY CLAIMS MUELLER HAS EVIDENCE THAT CORROBORATES PIECE OF DOSSIER

Here Are The Most Egregious Fake News Stories Of 2018

Please feel free to discuss any of the 32 examples listed in the link above.

And, feel free to discuss exactly why the Citizens of this Great Nation SHOULD NOT see the fake news MSM as the enemy of the American people.

So you actually believe that newspapers like the Wall Street Journal which tends to be politically conservative and the New York Times are fake news.? They win lots of Pulitzer Prizes for good journalism or do you believe that that is a conspiracy by liberals?
Most of those stories are ridiculous
