Hey media….THIS is what real journalism looks like!
There are many things that are unpredictable and unknown about Donald Trump. But one thing we know for sure is that he is a liar. He lies about things that are extremely easy to fact-check. In fact, he lies about nearly everything he says. And I’m not exaggerating here.
According to PolitiFact, Donald Trump was the biggest liar of this election cycle….by far. Out of 77 Trump statements fact-checked by PolitiFact, 76% were found to be “mostly false,” “false,” or “pants on fire.” No other politician came anywhere near Trump’s rating.
It’s like an obsession and a compulsion for him at this point. But the thing that’s even more disturbing than Trump’s lies is current journalism.
For the life of me I don’t understand this, but the press continues to bend over backward to avoid using the word “lie.” Even when they fact-check him and call out specific lies, they still refuse to call it what it is.
Well, fortunately, there are still some honest and brave journalists out there.
On Saturday CNN’s Brian Stelter stepped up into those shoes. Finally someone told the truth about this. The host of Reliable Sources did a segment calling Trump out for exactly what he is…a LIAR. Hey media….take some notes….THIS is what real journalism looks like.
