GOP Fake News

While the DNC convention included a lot more "dance parties" (featuring Janet Reno, but unfortunately not in a blue dress), the Republican convention fills a lot of its lag time with fake news.

It would be funny - especially the "reporter" who gets really excited (she's actually a spokesperson for the convention) - if it weren't so cynical a manipulative ploy. Republicans, after all, don't see any difference between fake news and real news (e.g. Fox News). If they distinguish them, they prefer the fake news if Republicans are portrayed positively.

Is there really any difference between the canned blurbs the GOP manufactured for the convention and the canned talking points they send over to Fox News every hour?
