President Trump, on his Twitter last week, said fake news is at an all-time high. And there are many who agree. Among those who agree is Daniel Payne with the website 'The College Fix.'
“I can’t think of a time when it’s been higher and when it’s been more of an accepted part of the news cycle,” Payne told KTRH.
If you want an example, there was the report from the Washington Post that Robert Mueller was investigating the President for obstruction of Justice. ABC's Pierre Thomas reported on Sunday that may be premature.
“My sources are telling me he’s begun preliminary planning, but he’s not yet made that momentous decision to go forward with a full investigation,” Thomas said on ABC’s ‘This Week.’
IIf you want more examples, Payne says look at the NY Times right after Wednesday's shooting of Republican Congressmen on a baseball field.
“They ran an article claiming there was a proven link between political rhetoric and the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords,” Payne explained.
The Times had to run a correction. And in a move that may signal a shift further left, Fox News dropped the 'Fair and Balanced' slogan in favor of 'Most Watched, Most Trusted.'
