Ever since the fairness doctrine was ended our nation has been more and more divided. We are subject to claims of false news from many quarters mostly from fringe groups .
Someone said that we are entitled to our own opinions but not our own facts. The only thing that will bring back our faith in our government, our news media, our nation and ourselves is to have the public debate based on agreed facts, not combating narratives. The Russians would have a hard time interfering in our elections if we had a Walter Cronkite like a trusted source of factual news. How many people still think Obama was born in Kenya? How many think Clinton has a child pornography ring run out of a pizza parlor in D.C.? The list goes on.
