What Orwellian nightmare of a politician proposed this?? Are we going to rely on a Ministry of Truth to police the press? Who defines "fake"? CNN and others reported that Iraq had WMDs in 2003. Was that fake news? They conjured up a fake sob story about babies being pulled out of incubators. Is government propaganda fake news? Is policing of thought crimes next? I vote we expel from Congress whichever would-be dictator proposed this on the grounds of trying to overturn freedom of the press.
