'Cotto/Gottfried': Fake news is a problem -- just how serious, though? 'Hoaxed' author Mike Cernovich explains.

Most Americans are skeptical about claims made by long-established media sources. This represents a radical departure from the past, in which the press was trusted by a solid majority of those in this country. What happened? While there are no shortage of answers, the exposure of certain high-profile stories as fraudulent -- at least to some degree -- surely is high on the list. Just how serious is the problem of fake news, though? For journalists, Mike Cernovich is perhaps the most loathed man in America. Last year, he released a documentary, 'Hoaxed,' and a book of the same title, both of which expose deception wrought by news outlets. On this episode of 'Cotto/Gottfried,' Cernovich discusses what he discovered in the making of 'Hoaxed,' explains what is going on with untrue reportage, and much more.

There will never be a really free and enlightened State until the State comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly.

'Cotto/Gottfried': Should you prepare for the economy to tank? Jim Rickards thinks so -- and explains why.

America's economy is doing pretty well these days. Considering what might happen in the event that it collapses is likely among the last things most wish to do. Wall Street veteran Jim Rickards believes that the time is now to prepare for what happens when the good years draw to a close. His latest book, the bestseller 'Aftermath: Seven Secrets of Wealth Preservation in the Coming Chaos,' details what he believes will transpire as a result of the next global economic meltdown, as well as what ordinary folks can do to shield themselves from fiscal ruination. Rickards explains the key points of 'Aftermath' on this episode of 'Cotto/Gottfried.'
