“Fake news” label not working, so pro-aborts want to label contrary opinions “lies” and “hoaxes”

By Dave Andrusko The Establishment Media, which lost much of its hegemony during the 2016 presidential campaign, is rethinking (or refashioning) one of the ploys it trotted out to try to regain some of the ground it has lost: “fake news.” To be clear, everyone understands there really are stories that qualify as “fake.” But …
