THERE IS NO FAKE NEWS LIKE POLISH FAKE NEWS – Some in the Western mainstream “legacy” media no doubt reason in those terms but no one has yet dared to put it in writing. Unlike one of the deputy directors of the Polish state TV, addressing the question of the authenticity of a quote ascribed to the Solidarity legend and former president Lech Walesa:
Że wpis Wałęsy to fejk? Może. Ale przecież mógł tak napisać, nie? A nawet jak nie napisał, to tak myśli. A nawet jeżeli tak nie pomyślał, to mógł tak pomyśleć. Czyli nie fejk
— Dawid Wildstein (@DawidWildstein) May 21, 2018
In English: “That Walesa quote a fake? Maybe. But he might have said it, no? And even if he didn’t say it, that’s what he thought. And even if he actually didn’t, he might possibly think like that. So not fake.”
CNN – take note: this is master level sophistry.
