FAKE NEWS, SECULAR AND RELIGIOUS--IT'S GOT TO END, PRAY GOD!
We all know that so much of the 24 hour a day news on the cable news shows and on network broadcast stations is fake news. CNN has been caught in the act. Fox apologized this morning for something fake they said yesterday concerning the release of so-called top secret information from the former FBI director.
When news becomes reality show entertainment, which CNN and others pioneered, then fake news makes sense since all reality shows are fake mixed in with some reality, but scripted nonetheless. It is a ratings game and to get viewers.
But the same is true about some right wing Catholic blogs who report hearsay and malicious gossip about Pope Francis and others in the hierarchy, but particularly Pope Francis. I would say that in days gone by this could have led to excommunication of Catholics. Perhaps it should return and with a vengeance.
1Peter5 has a remarkable story today that I would classify as fake news. It is scurrilous and not worthy of Catholics reporting such nonsense as news when it is simply fabrication.
