Fake News And The Penalty

CNN  lied about stuff to create fake news. From the article:

While Judge Orinda Evans didn’t all out declare that CNN was peddling in falsehoods. She did take aim at the network in an initial judgment in favor of a former hospital CEO who sued CNN accusing them of purposely skewing statistics to reflect poorly on a West Palm Beach hospital. Davide Carbone, former CEO of St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, filed a defamation lawsuit against CNN after they aired what he claims were a “series of false and defamatory news reports” regarding the infant mortality rate at the hospital. CNN’s report said the mortality rate was three times the national average. However, Mr. Carbone contends that CNN “intentionally” manipulated statistics to bolster their report. He also claims that CNN purposely ignored information that would look favorable to the hospital in order to sensationalize the story.

ABCNNBCBS is #fakenews . They make up stories. They cite "anonymous sources" where none exist. They repeat erroneous information among one another.

The 1st Amendment guarantees free press. Not freedom from consequences of #fakenews .
