We've tried to do similar things to liberals. It just has never worked, it never takes off. You'll get debunked within the first two comments and then the whole thing just kind of fizzles out.

I think this is because Liberals look at news and try to determine its truth.  Alt-Right Conservatives (and maybe other Conservatives) look at news and if it agrees with their worldview they accept it.

That's bad news. Liberals are wrong all the time, and if they are attempting to determine its truth, well what does that say about their skill of determining? Don't know

Please explain.  Are all Liberals wrong by definition (i.e. anybody who disagrees with me must be a Liberal) or are they simply cursed with bad diagnostic skills?  And if they are cursed with bad diagnostic skills, is it because they are not Conservative?

Did you read Bruce the Budgie's article posted above? I've read several accounts of people who make fake news not for political reasons but just for money. In every case, they can't make money on pro-liberal fake news because they don't fall for it.

Short quote:
Quote
Coler says his writers have tried to write fake news for liberals but they just never take the bait.

Remember, when we talk about 'fake news', it doesn't mean 'news you disagree with'. It means news stories that someone made up out of whole cloth as a scam or hoax, either for a political gain or just to sell ad clicks. The one mentioned in the lede of this story was about a murder/suicide death of an FBI agent who leaked information that harmed Hillary, which had no basis in fact at all.

It was shared half a million times on Facebook, presumably not by gullible liberals.
