BECKET ADAMS: No, really: Fake news isn’t going anywhere so long as media keep doing stuff like this.

Fake news isn’t going anywhere so long as there’s distrust for legitimate media outlets.

Coupled with the rise of for-profit hoax reporting, and the fact that the press is about as disliked and distrusted as Congress, you’d think newsrooms would start handling thinly sourced and sensational stories with greater care.

But some old habits are hard to break, I guess.

Consider, for example, how newsrooms covered the story of Yasmin Seweid, an 18-year-old Muslim woman who claimed this month that she was harassed and bullied in New York City by three Donald Trump supporters.

Her story appears to be a complete fabrication, according to police officials, but that part didn’t come out until long after media had given her initial tale a lot of uncritical press.

Comrade, we must distinguish between “Bourgeois Truth,” the mundane matter of what actually happened, and “Revolutionary Truth,” which is whatever advances the revolution. “Fake news” is bourgeois truth. “Real news” is revolutionary truth.
