A thread on #BoycottMSNBC, the reality of fake news, and the self-defeating nature of the Left-Right political dynamic:
The liberal aversion to the term “fake news” is based entirely on the fact that Trump uses it. For some reason, our collective amnesia has deep-sixed the phrase’s origin, which was with *liberals* who pointed the finger at fake news as the fuel for Trump’s rise. Trump flipped it.
By adopting a phrase with broad applicability and making it radioactive to Left-wingers, Trump channeled the American Right’s ability to appropriate ideas, images, and institutions at will. The American Left, obsessed with purity, is afraid to contest occupied territory.
