    iirc the Podesta emails were very specific and incriminating ....

    Apparently, this was a false flag event in an attempt to discredit the #pizzagate scandal.

    My first thought also. Discredit the scandal through a surrogate nut case. After all, pizzagate was discredited by Snopes!

    So who thinks there was reasonable suspicion that Podesta's emails about getting pizza were code words for "let's go molest the children being held as sex slaves at Comet Ping Pong & Pizza place!" ??

    I think this fake news business is a dangerous game, especially with people gullible enough to believe it.

    John and Robbie were just having an innocent personal exchange over email about lunch.

    What is "fake news"? Does that mean a story that isn't covered by CNN or MSNBC or the New York Times? Does it mean a narrative that isn't approved for release by the DNC?

    Does a misleading or incomplete or outright wrong story by the New York Times, such as its latest hit piece on concealed carry, count as "fake news"?

    Basically, is it the specific story that constitutes "fake", or the source of the story that makes it fake?

    Fake news is news that is fake, regardless of the source.

    According to the FBI's own intelligence I'd say its fairly likely.

    Do you think I'll do better playing dominos on cheese than on pasta?

    I remember when the media was attempting to do the same thing when the Monica
    Lewinsky scandal broke.

    Anyone who actually thought Clinton was having an affair was simply cray-cray.

    Was it "fake news" when Australia's "60 Minutes" reported on the British equivalent?

    Here's the Australian report - at least until youtube yanks it.
