TWEETS OF NOTE

  • (@MZHemingway) The elephant in the room for media malfeasance discussions is that many reporters are simply not smart. They fall for hoaxes easily. Over and over and over again They are obviously not well read. That this is combined with a completely unwarranted arrogance compounds the problem. Tweet.
  • (@BuckSexton) Most of the media has yet to realize- “fake news” accusations aren’t going away whether Trump wins in 2020 or not. People will chant “fake news” until the national press is open about its political bias, or until press stop being activists who pretend to be journalists. Tweet.
