While on the question, “How would you define fake news?” Malcolm Nance had a bone to pick with Breitbart editor Alex Marlow.
"You are Breitbart, right? And you don't do fake news? That's what you're asserting here? Yeah you know there was this article about a 35-year counterterrorism expert who claimed that they wanted Trump Tower attacked that was written in Breitbart. I got thirty-one death threats from that. And that came from your website. So you're going to secure that right now? You are going to apologize to me? I'm sorry to say. I'm sorry to say. I spent decades hunting terrorists. Yes, so that's fake as hell."
"You don't have to share your bonafides with me," Alex said. "I respect you. I respect your service."
“Your followers threatened my family, my children, my wife," Nance replied.
"Are you really suggesting that Breitbart doesn't get death threats? Alex replied trying to deflect. "That our lives aren't put in danger?"
"No, No, No," Nance said. "You can apologize to me now. Alright? I'm not threatening you."
"Show me the story," Alex said. "And if the story is as you describe it
I'll be happy to offer an apology."
"I will come to your office to see that retraction," Nance replied.
