Fake News

Media’s Confirmation Bias Leads To Spreading Fake News. Again.

How many times do you have to get burned before you start actually verifying what you’re writing?

The media was rife with ‘I told you so’ headlines yesterday, after reports from more unnamed sources said the first order of business for the Trump administration was to hold a summit with Vladimir Putin, in Iceland, just like Reagan did with Gorbachev, circa 1986.

The headlines were smug and the Twitterati of newly born left wing militarist war mongers were resplendent with calls for martial law or protests or anything that could stop Donald Trump, an obvious traitor against America — a revolting person of low qualities who enjoys to be urinated upon by Russian hookers.

The only problem with that narrative, as touching as it may seem, is that it’s completely false. According to Trump’s press secretary, it’s all fake news.
