Fake News Charge Results in Fake Lawsuit Threat

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel has threatened to sue Colorado State Sen. Ray Scott after he tweeted that one of its recent articles was “fake news.”

Jay Seaton, the (Grand Junction Daily Sentinel) publisher, in an editorial over the weekend, said the tweet from the Senator is “a false character assassination that can’t go unchallenged.” … As of Tuesday, it is unclear if the newspaper will actually go through with the suit.
