I can’t imagine why people distrust the media.
“A week after the presidential race was called for Joe Biden, hundreds of Trump loyalists converged on the nation’s capital to protest the election results and falsely assert the vote was stolen,” began a Politico hit piece about the MAGA rally in D.C.
The obvious endgame of the article and the misleading descriptor both is narrative.
The even more obvious conclusion is that the media can’t even be trusted to accurately report the most basic aspect of a newsworthy event, numbers.
If you can’t trust the media account of crowd size, you can’t trust anything it puts out.
This obviously isn’t a new development, but at this point a reminder of an old one that the media has as much interest in and relationship to the truth as Pravda or anything coming out of a totalitarian regime.
And the same media then starts lecturing about conservative echo chambers and President Trump’s attacks on the news.
