Ambitious women and “fake news”

Another example of fake news would be the media narrative of “A Wave Of Hate In Trump’s America”, referring to various alleged hate crimes that appeared (mostly) on social media after the election, many of which have since been debunked as hoaxes. Even if we generously assume that the majority of these graffiti-ings and hijab-thefts actually happened, it seems ludicrous to report on these as a “wave of hate”, while ignoring/omitting the violent anti-trump riots that broke out in several cities.
Had HRC won, had it been Trump fans blocking highways and smashing cars, I’m 100% sure that would have been the focus of all media attention.

Now? Crickets and complaints about fake news.
