A Tennessee state lawmaker has introduced a bill recognizing CNN and the Washington Post as “fake news.”

The resolution introduced Wednesday by Rep. Micah Van Huss recognizes the news outlets as “fake news and part of the media wing of the Democratic Party.”

WJHL reports:

It also condemns them for 'denigrating our citizens and implying that they are weak-minded followers instead of people exercising their rights that our veterans paid for with their blood.'

'My constituents are tired of fake news, they’re tired of Republicans who don’t fight, so this resolution accomplishes both,' Van Huss told News Channel 11 Wednesday.




Van Huss says he has a list of examples to back the premise of his resolution, even citing the recent segment from CNN where anchor Don Lemon begins laughing after GOP strategist Rick Wilson commented: “Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter ‘U’ and a picture of an actual physical crane next to it.”
