Representative Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) announced his extreme disgust with the mainstream media during his tenure as a Congressman.
“I think there is a blurring of the line between the opinion page and the news page,” said Gowdy.”And I can take you to the headlines of almost any website on the Internet right now, and you will say, ‘well that’s opinion, that’s subjective, not objective.'”
Most of America is just as disgusted with the media as Gowdy. Reporters routinely add their personal take on the news in an effort to create not only ratings but also a name for themselves. In doing so, they sacrifice the truth.
Gowdy points out that in its rush to report news first, reporters are willing to use misquotes, erroneous information and blatant lies to rush a story to the public. Media bias is real, but it’s nothing new.
The real threat in determining FAKE NEWS lies in letting fact-checking organizations vet media bias. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg plans to use some of the biggest hoax-generators as his fact-checkers, including ABC news and Snopes. Both agencies exhibit extreme bias in reporting.
It looks like mainstream media is quickly moving from journalism in censorship.
Members of the press are now less popular than congress. No wonder; who trusts a liar?
