Should the federal government strike down fake news sites?

The proliferation of fake and misleading news stories on the Internet has been identified by liberals as a key reason for Hillary Clinton's crushing electoral defeat. Some pundits on the Left have even called for the federal government to ramp up its online censorship, shut down fake news sites, and block fabricated articles from appearing on social media.

Lawrence Jones pushes back against this initiative, citing freedom of speech and freedom of press concerns and expressing disbelief that the federal government would be up to the task.

"And now we want the government to now decide what is real and what's fake?" Lawrence asks. "The same government that can't run their own agencies? I think it's a slippery slope. And I think it's something that we should be cautious of."
