Sharyl Attkisson joined Steve Malzberg for a discussion that included the “propaganda of fake news,” a topic that she included in her current book, “The Smear.” Malzberg offers his views, saying, “To me it’s just insane, to me it’s fascism from the left, but in fact the fake news is the so-called mainstream media in so many cases.” He asks, “And you know when it’s worse, in my view, and you can disagree with me, feel free.
Malzberg answers his own question, “Fake news by omission, it’s what they don’t talk about, what they leave out as we just discussed with the chipping away at the freedom of the press under Obama. It’s when they don’t bring up issues or shy away from them or outright say, ‘oh no,no,no – we don’t talk about that here,’ that’s the biggest sin of fake news, the sin of omission.”
