Facts matter - details are critical

sooo is this article;

http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/12/25/us/politics/fake-news-claims-conservatives-mainstream-media-.html

...about 'fake news' just more 'fake news'?

How can opposing views be resolved when facts are disputed - by both sides?

How can we communicate, compromise and cooperate without believing in the same reality ?

Or is the goal to Not communicate, Not compromise and NOT cooperate?

How can that lead to anything but divisive conflict and polarization?

Thanks to a bleep from @elonmusk- Correlation is not causality or ... is it? http://www.tylervigen.com/spurious-correlations
