A veteran, intelligent journalist, legendary for her pursuit of the facts, regardless of how those facts affect any political agendas, has compiled a list of “50 Media Mistakes in the Trump Era.”
All those “mistakes” “reported” things that were negative as it pertains to President Trump. Surprise! Surprise!
Yes, I’m leaving unsaid what we all know: Some number of these “mistakes” were not mistakes at all, but purposeful distortions, fabrications and lies.
Here’s the link.
And, here are some of my favorites:

Whaddya know! Just a few days before the election, the media come up with a “mistake” that “erroneously” hinted that Donald Trump was married to an illegal alien! Surprise!
Then there’s this obvious fabrication from, you guessed it, CNN:
6. Jan. 20, 2017:
Lol! I’m only on #6! Out of fifty!
We can’t leave out the “Trump’s a racist!” sillinesses, can we?!? Consider this one:
7. Jan. 20, 2017:
Oops! The bust was there all along! But someone didn’t see it, so… Trump must have removed it! Why, oh why? Because he’s a racist!
But, but, but… Trump is a racist!!! Right? Well:
11. Feb. 2, 2017:
Oops! I guess Obama, Bush and Clinton are too…
But, the media wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize national security, would they?
15. Feb. 22, 2017:
One more oops! But, it’s only the CIA Director… not as if it’s someone important! Just the one who’d play a major role in preventing another 9/11. Good to see we have the intrepid watchdog media on the case, tracking down the facts, and just the facts!
Well, at least these people are a lot more informed than you or I, right? Well…

These New York Times “reporters” didn’t know that Ivanka Trump is the Donald’s… daughter? Hmmmm… that’s kind of a well-known thing.
Then there’s this:

Message: when you watch NBC, you might come away learning that up is down, white is black, no is yes… not is not not. 🙂 Come to think of it, it’s the same when you listen to/watch ABC, CBS, MSNBC, NPR, of when you read the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Washington Post…
Sometimes these “news” outfits will simply invent things. No! The heck you say! Can that even be possible?!? Why, that would be… dishonest! Yep. It would be:
26. Aug. 31, 2017:
But, these people whose very livelihood consists of using words, certainly know what those words mean, right? Hmmmm…:
31. Nov. 29, 2017:
Wait… wait… a prominent American journalist didn’t know what “plagiarism” means??? It’s not as if the concept isn’t important in, you know… journalism, or anything.
But, but, but… the media would never get the biggest story of the past two plus years wrong, would they? Ummm…:

The entire feature is a great read, and very disheartening. Hats off to the great Sharyl Atkisson for throwing some light onto the darkness that is the corrupt American Media Complex.
