On the Opinion page of today's (August 8) Times Daily, is an excellent example of fake news. The political cartoon depicts a "previously undisclosed meeting" between Putin and Trump. The NY Times was, I believe, the originator of this trash. The meeting took place during the dinner hosted by Angela Merkel , German chancellor, at the G20 meeting . The dinner lasted about 2 hours. Trump went over to Putin and spoke with him, after the meal, for about 15 minutes. At the dinner were the 20 national leaders, their wives, or escorts, 20 translators and waiters. There are pictures of the two talking -- some undisclosed meeting. NYT, originally stated the meeting lasted one hour, which was not congruous with the attendees schedule.
Just another lie, by the lying NY Slime, which was spread worldwide. Churchill stated that a lie could travel half way around the world before the truth could put on its boots.
