    Was this from CNN Sweden? Cause that would explain all this talk about Sweden I've been hearing about lately.

    That must be a fake channel. I know CNN International, but not CNN Sweden.

    There's only a few places that get it....the White House, The White House South, The White House North and perhaps KellyAnne Conway's House.

    Doesn't Milo "White Supremacist" Yiannopoulos have a black boyfriend?

    How does that work, CNN?

    Are we still calling it the Clinton News Network long after the election when she's pretty much of politics and only gets covered when she sees a broadway show?

    Isn't there some other clever way to say you don't like CNN?

    Your thread title and op are the only fake news here. This wasn't a news piece on CNN, it was a guest opinion piece.

    So you are pretending to not know the difference between a news piece and an opinion piece. Also, what's so fake about it?

    Please provide a link to what he did.

    And I mean a link to what he actually did.
    Not more fake news from BBC, CNN and so on.

    Can't find one?
    I wonder why ...
    --- Post Merged, Feb 19, 2017 ---
    It claims things that aren't true.

    Given he was banned from twitter it is perfectly reasonable and non-controversial to hold the opinion that he was behaving unreasonably. It seems like a pretty reasonable view to hold.

    Edit: looks like he called a black actress a monkey, cut and dried racism. Yawn.

    Can't provide a source, can you.
    Didn't think so.

    How about a source that proves he is a white supremacist?

    Can't find one, can you.

    You can't call an opinion piece fake news because someone has a mainstream opinion. It's ridiculous.

    A "mainstream opinion" that has no basis in facts.
    Hence Fake News!

    Your link doesn't mention a tweet of him referring to her as a monkey.

    If Twitter things it's a reasonable thing to do then it is reasonable. So it isn't fake news.

    You have a different opinion. And that's OK too.

    He should have criticised his followers for attacking her. It's unacceptable. And not covered by the 1st amendment.

    No, I want to know why you consider them fascists? Do you know what fascism means?

    What he did was make it quite obvious he wanted her attacked and got his followers to do it. Its an approach used in Shakespeare for Christ sake so it isn't new.

    If we are calling a spade a spade, as liked by non snowflakes, he attacked her.

    Your link does not provide any source for that claim. Yawn.

    It's the infamous ultra-lefty-looney Huffintong Post blog inventing stuff.

    The Huffington Post is so fake they make CNN look legit.
    --- Post Merged, Feb 19, 2017 ---
    More claims.
    Do you have a source?
    Maybe another fake news story?
    --- Post Merged, Feb 19, 2017 ---
    Hate speech is covered by the first amendment.

    Twitter claiming that somebody did something but nobody having a screenshot to provide doesn't prove ****.

    So why didn't he tell his followers not to be racist towards this woman?
    --- Post Merged, Feb 19, 2017 ---
    Harassment isn't.

    Besides the first doesn't strictly apply to private businesses.
