Former Sen. Rick Santorum, who gets paid to opine on CNN, said Friday that technology has degraded the quality of news.

“And as a result you do see a lot of fake news out there, you do see a lot of opinion leaking into the hard news cycle. And that is real. And if journalists just want to say that doesn’t happen, there is no such thing as fake news, I’m sorry, the public is not buying it because it’s just not true,” he said on CNN.
