Genuine Journalist Sharyl Attkisson has compiled a lst of 50 "mistakes" made by MSM concerning Trump and related things.

She points out many "mistakes" are later "corrected" or proven wrong.

Things like dates, times, names, places etc are often smeared and slanged to get the wrong points across to the gullible and frail.

Melania Trump was an early "side" target and they really screwed up the "accuracies" 💥

Democrats are in bigger trouble than ever despite the "support".


The "press" needs more winners like Ali Ooops


and Mika too !



50 Media Mistakes in the Trump Era: The Definitive List

We the media have “fact-checked” President Trump like we have fact-checked no other human being on the planet—and he’s certainly given us plenty to write about. That’s probably why it’s so easy to find lists enumerating and examining his mistakes, missteps and “lies.”

But as self-appointed arbiters of truth, we’ve largely excused our own unprecedented string of fact-challenged reporting. The truth is, formerly well-respected, top news organizations are making repeat, unforced errors in numbers that were unheard of just a couple of years ago.
Our repeat mistakes involve declaring that Trump’s claims are “lies” when they are matters of opinion, or when the truth between conflicting sources is unknowable; taking Trump’s statements and events out of context; reporting secondhand accounts against Trump without attribution as if they’re established fact; relying on untruthful, conflicted sources; and presenting reporter opinions in news stories—without labeling them as opinions.

Well they didn't put this, but another media mistake is praising Kim Jong Un's sister.




US and international media outlets went gaga over Kim Yo Jong, sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, at the Winter Olympics.





CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, ABC, and Reuters were all criticised for surprisingly cheery depictions of Kim and the North Korean cheer squad dispatched to the Winter Olympics in South Korea.


After the fiasco of praising Hitler and Stalin, the NYT and other media outlets should have at the very least learned their lessons. It's very easy to go on Youtube and watch a documentary about North Korea.

And yet many of these media personalities are wondering why many people don't take them seriously anymore.

Let the back peddling begin lol. As an msm journalist, they have allowed or ignored this kind of behavior for years, so they're part of the problem anyway. Find a new career and a new country, credibility is gone in this one.

Problem with this approach is by the time you are finished reading, there will usually be 20 more mistakes.

This is all interesting to me in a political sense.

Besides one side saying that Trump is playing 34D snakes and ladders chess with the media and the other side saying he is an orange idiot that can't put two sentences together...

Look at the bigger picture. Look at all the clouds now on the horizon.

The leakers issue starting to come forward.

The DNC hack by their own IT people.

The Hillary matters.

The Alphabet agencies issues.

The IG report.

The multitude of AG investigations.

I am starting to think, despite my pessimism, that there is going to be a veritable ####storm of unpleasantness coming to light in the months before the midterms.

If this is so, and Sessions (The Silent Executioner) and Trump did this on purpose...

It is going to be the grandest troll of the left... ever.

That the MSM is now backpedaling at an ever frantic speed just seems to put a bit of credence to my theory.

Time will tell... and S&F for the post.

Why? You'll just ignore it like anything else not anti-Trump and go on a deflection binge.

I just have to point out to you that he is, in fact, your President.

Go say it in the mirror 10 times... "Trump is my President".

Heh.

It is great to see Operation Mockingbird be exposed for the desperate deep state propaganda it is.

My personal favorite as of now is...

"According to my source, Trump is really upset because he can not watch porn in the Oval Office, this is news." - Mike Brezinski (MSNBC)

The best part is you truly can not make this stuff up!

Fox & Friends accidentally said this about the Singapore summit:

"regardless of what happens in that meeting between the two dictators."

So it’s just fine that the media lies to you because you don’t like Trump. Got it.

I would love thoughts from trump supporters on this video.

Those were just the outright lies. I read lots of articles where they twisted the truth to make it appear that Trump had done something wrong, after the first couple of long paragraphs the article went on to explain that they were unsubstantiated claims or opinions or that the evidence only points to a possibility of it.

I have lost all faith in many of the news media companies, I see them as just rumor creators, worse than the national enquirer ever was.

This is information that has been completely ignored by the ignorant "woke" crowd that is perpetuating this large scale psyop on the American people.

It is not confusion that allows these mistakes to happen. It is malice.
