After spending weeks bemoaning the rise of “fake news,” journalists have chosen to double down with fake news of their own.
‘A media that doesn’t push back against that type of falsehood for eight years and then gets all upset at Sean Spicer talking about numbers is not going to be taken seriously at all.’
The media would like to imagine themselves heroes in their war with Trump. If they don’t improve quickly, they’ll fail in their task.
‘Your name is fake, your company is fake, and the claims on your website are false.’
Hillary Clinton’s loss changed the media and culture wars. Conservatives need to realize this, stop being defensive and clickbaity, and get back into real journalism.
‘Obviously (the intelligence community is) leaking like sieves in ongoing war against the president. . . As we take this information from them we should also apply skepticism.’
‘Reporters, when they are not precise about what happened, are aiding and abetting Moscow’s disinformation campaign.’
‘It wasn’t just that he said that BuzzFeed was a failing pile of garbage. . . It’s that he said that he alone was able to stand up to bullying media because he has a megaphone.’
The idea that this kind of singling out of press members by politicians is new and especially catastrophic is odd. Remember de Blasio and Obama doing the same?
Supposing the controversial dossier turns out to be just a tapestry of fabrication, who should be held responsible for keeping it alive? All of us.
During his first formal press conference as President-elect, Donald Trump called BuzzFeed a ‘piece of garbage.’ He’s right.
Watch a bunch of D.C. and New York City journalists completely melt down after being asked if they know a single person who drives a truck.
‘Many people in the media are pushing a narrative rather than just reporting the facts, and frequently they get the narrative wrong.’
Here are questions to ask yourself and frames of mind to be in if you want to sort out what’s fact from what’s propaganda from any side of the political aisle.
The problem with these mea culpas and modified, limited hang-outs is that anyone familiar with the history of The New York Times has seen this movie before.
PolitiFact presents itself as a nonpartisan truth umpire, but here’s the story behind how its metrics are biased against Republicans and highly attuned to political winds.
