It seems these days that one just cannot escape the onslaught of “Fake News”, or as I used to be told when a lad – lies. The trouble is that it isn’t the usual suspects, the web sites of the demented or dangerous, but from the desks of those we might reasonably expect to be reporting news truefully. Like CNN perhaps.
Following the success of getting everyone excited about the numbers of witnesses to Trumps inauguration CNN decided that it would be a useful addition to public discourse if it stated that Nancy Sinatra was angry that her father’s old song “My Way” was used without her approval.
Sure Nancy has Tweeted that there is not a shred of truth in what CNN said, but the damage, as always, has been done.
