We have all heard President Trump complain about fake news over and over. At times it seems that his definition of fake news is any story he doesn’t like. However, he does have a point. The media often does get it wrong. We just saw an example.
He was asked a question about the brutally ruthless gang MS13. Part of his reply was that they were animals, not people. Many stories said he was referring to all illegal immigrants, not just MS13. It would have taken a minute or two to get their facts right, but some media outlets didn’t bother. To their credit, some issued corrections but others are standing by the story.
It is no secret that the vast majority of reporters and editors are liberal. I think most tried to honestly report the news but would at times let their bias show. Now many see producing anti-Trump propaganda as more important than getting the story straight.
