Sopan Deb, a culture writer for The New York Times, said at a George Washington University Forum on Wednesday that President Trump won the 2016 election for “15 million other reasons” than fake news.
“Blaming fake news is one of those easy things to do,” Deb said because “a lot of people don’t like what [voters] did.”
Deb doubted that Trump voters fell for fake stories and added, “a lot more voters went to the booth informed.”
“They went to the voting booths. They knew Donald Trump wanted to build a wall, that he originally promised to ban all Muslims from coming into the United States. They knew that he didn’t release his tax returns. They knew about the Access Hollywood tapes.”
“And they still voted for him,” Deb added. “It has very little to do with fake news and more to do with the fact that [the voters] liked [Trump] better.”
