Please comment, gromsdad. This is important
Enough with the Gromsdad Facebook feed. Trump is the scammer, you and your ilk defend him at every turn. What gives?

And that's why the media needs to keep them in check.

That's their job.

You do that with responsible reporting.

Trump got all the ammo he needed to whine endlessly about them because the media gave him a thousand round box labeled FAKE NEWS during the first year of his presidency.

Somehow they still don't get it.

I would say that correcting mistakes is a part of responsible journalism.

It absolutely is.

But there's also the responsible reporting aspect. And the job of the responsible editor to ensure the vetting of anonymous sources is done right. And considering the political climate is part of that vetting.

Never in recent history have there been so many stories retracted about a presidential administration. Those retractions helped Trump rally his base.

And yet, to sound repetitive, the base has no problem with that lack of humility/responsibility to correct false or incorrect information from the current administration.

Hypocrisy at all time high.

The left wing media is the proverbial "Boy who cried wolf". They have created a situation where people's first (and correct) instinct is to not trust a word they say. They've done this to themselves.


This is a bad day for the news media. Lets not kid ourselves, Toobin said on CNN. The larger message that a lot of people are going to take from this story is that the news media are a bunch of leftist liars who are dying to get the president, and theyre willing to lie to do it.

You're deflecting.

It's irrelevant what Trump's base feels about whatever nonsense the White House says or the glaring hypocrisy.

The rest of us do not listen to politicians to get the truth. We listen to the press.

When the press fails in responsible reporting it's a problem.

You realize it's not just Trump's base who thinks the press has a problem right?

Trump would have dug his grave a long time ago. But the press chose to be adversarial instead and predictably Trump ate it up and made it his brand.

The press chose sides and threw any sense of ethics out the window. Nearly every story is spun as "how can we damage Trump with this one" and if there isn't an angle where they can use the story to bash the president or it is a net positive for the president they bury it.

It would be nice if the retards screaming fake news about every story they don't like held their media sources to the same high standard. Trump and his rubes have turned projection into an artform.

Laughable based on the shear volume of dishonest media coming from the left.

I agree the press is biased. That is the profit motive at work. And the rush to get the story out first.

But to say it's exclusively lefty bias is not accurate.

Also, if they correct the error, that is the fair response.


We all know what we hate.

We just don't know what we want.
