Here's why Trump's attacks on 'fake news' succeed

The Washington Post ran a story with this misleading headline last week: Here's why Trump's attacks on 'fake news' succeed. The story was entirely about why Trump's supporters are OK with his attacks on the news media.

In response, I sent this letter (not published):

That's a narrow definition of success: that it will go over with your supporters. That's true, but not news, and not success.
