“Hillary Clinton Did It”

Most of the press will ignore this news, but the Russia-Trump narrative that Mrs. Clinton sanctioned did enormous harm to the country. It disgraced the FBI, humiliated the press, and sent the country on a three-year investigation to nowhere. Vladimir Putinnever came close to doing as much disinformation damage.

Truth Matters

This is quite the thread if you click through:

Glenn Greenwald’s article about the situation:

Truth matters. Noble lies are never justified no matter the cause, especially in journalism. But these employees of corporate media outlets have been taught the exact opposite model: that their primary obligation is to please and flatter the partisan agenda and political sensibilities of their audience even if it means lying or recklessly spreading unproven theories to do it. That is their profit model. And they have trained their audiences to want and expect this and that is why they never feel compelled to engage in any self-critique or accountability when they get caught doing this: their audiences want to be lied to — they are grateful for it — and would prefer that they not admit they did it so that their partisan interests will not be undermined.


Journalism that Deserves Contempt

Truth Matters

I don’t care which side of the aisle you sit on politically, the truth matters.

P.S. The article’s author, Matt Taibbi, is not a conservative…so this is not “pro-Trump” piece. It is pro-truth.
