    But how far do we need to go back to find any reliable news?
    Should we rebrand the Good News Bible the Fake News Bible, for instance.

    Just as much reliable news as there ever was. What's new is politicians using the term "fake news" to try to diminish news that is not politically correct.

    I feel it is news that is created to divert from important news.

    It's a business, like selling used cars.

    I think that there needs to be differentiation between “reporting” and “punditry”.

    I do not think that Donald T would try to diminish any news that is not Politically Correct. Why should he ?

    Now, President Reagan on meeting the young Trump said this:
    For the life of me, and I’ll never know how to explain it, when I met that young man, I felt like I was the one shaking hands with a president.

    What you have said, about what Ronald Reagan had said, to a younger Donald Trump in 1987 is disputed. However the fact that they did meet in the Whitehouse is not undisputed.
