Media prevaricate

25/05/2018

This tweet from The Hill and the response, make a point as to how a number of the media tend to be reluctant to call a spade a spade

It is worth noting that many of the responses to The Hill tweet were similarly condemnatory

Further it supports this comment in a recent post by Adam:-

Foer suggests:-

Few individuals will have the time or perhaps the capacity to sort elaborate fabulation from truth. Our best hope may be outsourcing the problem, restoring cultural authority to trusted validators with training and knowledge: newspapers, universities.

Therein lies a key problem. Many of these validators are no longer to be trusted. Many universities are no longer bastions of free thought, but validators of intolerance and bias. Many newspapers simply regurgitate clickbait.
