A viral video making its rounds, shows French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen destroying a journalist after being attacked for stating FACTS about why no one trusts the media.
A journalist was video taped attacking Le Pen for her advice that people “turn away from the traditional media, (and) go and find news on the Internet.”
The journalist immediately claimed that Le Pen’s suggestion is potentially “dangerous”.
Mind-boggled by her statement, Le Pen then questioned her,
“On the Internet, you can find conspiracy theories, all types of things, it’s not necessarily verified information.”
La Pen quickly fired back:
“Don’t you think that the traditional media have conspiracy theories?”
“I’ve read a ton of things about Russia intervening in the presidential campaign and other things like that – I mean there is at least as much fake news in the traditional media as on the Internet!”
The reporter then went on to undermine Le Pen for ‘acting like Trump’ when it comes to the speaking about the credibility of Mainstream Media.
“Madame, French people have no confidence in the media whatsoever, are you aware of that, or not?” fires Le Pen.

Just a side note, recent polls show Le Pen pulling ahead of favored candidate Emmanuel Macron.
