Don’t Fall for Trump’s “Changing Libel Laws” Distraction

"No sir, there is no Heart in Trump."

“No sir, there is no Heart in Trump.”


As tempting as it may be, don’t get distracted by the “Trump considering changing libel laws” BS to attack the Failing/FAKE Press. It will NEVER happen.

Truth is an absolute defense against Libel, and many hack partisan “news” outlets rely on rumor/innuendo (and flat-out lies) to push their partisan agendas. Suits would be brought against all news outlets, not just the mean/failing/leftists ones disliked by Trump.

Any tougher laws would DESTROY the right wing GOP propaganda machine that put Trump in office. Goodbye Fox News, goodbye Breitbart, and goodbye Trump Twitter.

Think they’d cut off their ability to spread partisan misinformation? No chance. This is purely to rile people up and distract from other nonsense. Stop spreading the (fake) news.
