A now-viral video shows French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen crushing a journalist and explaining why no one trusts the media.
The mainstream reporter accused the internet of carrying fake news. Le Pen threw it back in her face.
Reporter: “On the Internet, you can find conspiracy theories, all types of things, it’s not necessarily verified information.”
Marine Le Pen: “Don’t you think that the traditional media have conspiracy theories? I’ve read a ton of things about Russia intervening in the presidential campaign and other things like that – I mean there is at least as much fake news in the traditional media as on the Internet!”
