<p>On the December 5, 2016 edition of <em>CNN Newsroom</em>, The Daily Beast&#39;s Dean Obeidallah bewailed the apparent power of &quot;fake news,&quot; particularly after the Sunday shooting at a Washington, D.C. restaurant at the center of the &quot;Pizzagate&quot; issue. Obeidallah proposed a hypothetical scenario: &quot;I wonder if a Muslim guy went to a pizza place with a gun...how that would have went down &mdash; I think much worse.&quot; The liberal pundit later claimed that &quot;Donald Trump...is the great purveyor of fake news,&quot; and that &quot;good people [are] misinformed; and in this case, this man was radicalized online. This is no different than ISIS radicalizing someone.&quot;</p>
