This really happened

Today the NRA put out a PR spot in which a spokeswoman warns the NYTimes that they are coming after the grey lady to "fisk" her.  nra_has_a_message_for_the_new_york_times_we_re_coming_for_you

Yesterday the National Enquirer (which by the way is not Fake News like the NYTimes) blared that Hillary framed Donald with the Russia stuff. 

Do you suppose there are people out there mean and cynical enough to circulate this misinformation without believing it, simply so they can make money.... when they are already wealthy?

Or is it about hate? Blind hatred.
