Lawsuits against fake news isn't unprecedented

Remember the fake crash scenario that got Stone Phillips in trouble, not to mention Jane Pauley?  NBC admitted its error and paid damages.   There is a history of this.  Remember Dan Rather?  He lost his job over "fake, but true" reports that were intended to damage POTUS George W. Bush.

So, if Trump wants to sue for fake news, he may have a precedent he can cite.
