'Alternative Facts Are Lies': CNN Fact Checks Kellyanne Conway With On-Screen Graphic | Crooks and Liars

If you follow the money over a course of time the values and the lies told the 'alternative facts ' reveal themselves in the uninformed comments of the likes of Andrew Bolt and others. Journalism isn't to be expected to be delivered by News Corp in the USA the UK or Australia. Bolt's battle for the 'freedom of speech' is to make us more American more confused and simply give Murdoch the benefit of greater power here as he has in the USA. Do we need it for a better Democracy should we rid ourselves of compulsory voting as well as the ABC news? Bolt loves debating because it's the reality of a moot and 'lawyer's facts only'. Remember Andrew Bolt is acccording to Andrew Bolt indigenous and more so than most indigenous Australians. That's the kind of facts he brings to a discussion on reality and why his stupidity looms large.
" A moot point can be either an issue open for debate, or a matter of no practical value or importance because it's hypothetical. The latter is more common in modern American English. The term comes from British law where it describes a hypothetical point of discussion used as teaching exercise for law students."

Unless Allan’s visit had some political purpose, the return of the native was difficult to explain. Under his editorship, the New York Post has reportedly lost several hundred million dollars since 2001.
