Was CNN Or Fox The King Of Fake News In 2017?
Whether you sit on the left chatting about global warming like Obama, hang out and hunt deer on the right like Sarah Palin, or enjoy listening to Ron Paul talk about how the Federal Reserve should be dismantled, I'm sure you can agree that there was a lot of fake news in 2017.
In fact, the only thing thrown around more than fake news this past year is the term "fake news". It's trended more than the Ice Bucket Challenge, and been longer lasting than Hillary Clinton's pneumonia.

There's been a theory pushed by Fox that DNC staffer whose name was Seth Rich was assassinated by the Democrat's upper leadership. The Young Turks argue that this is all fake drama, and wonder why nobody at Fox has been let go for perpetrating these uproarious rumors.
