Compare the outrageous and/or inflammatory front-page headlines on the following web sites and see whether some should be labeled "fake news" and others "legitimate journalism," or whether they all deserve the same label, fake or legitimate:

http://www.breitbart.com/

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/

https://www.rt.com/

http://www.politico.com/

When it gets to the point where Internet censorship becomes widespread, it will be very difficult to identify which web sites are legitimate journalism and which are fake news.

In reality, every one of them could legitimately be labeled "propaganda," and should be provided the same equal access to the public.
