I Was Fake News before Fake News Was Cool

On March 26, CBS aired a “60 Minutes” story on “Fake News.” Within that story was a two minute plus segment with Mike Cernovich ofwww.DangerandPlay.com. Scott Pelley declared that Cernovich had published “stories with no basis in fact” that were “categorically false.” Prominently featured was a story “by a retired anesthesiologist in Florida who never examined Hillary Clinton” that said “she has Parkinson’s Disease.” I am that anesthesiologist. And it’s true that I have not examined Mrs. Clinton. But the diagnosis of Parkinson’s is based in observation, not examination, and “60 Minutes” wasn’t interested in that fact.
