Liberal Media Is Never Wrong, It’s Just ”Fake but Accurate”

We learned that in 2004, with CBS’s fake National Guard story on George W. Bush. It continues today.

Why No Media 'Reckoning' Over Phony Steele Dossier? (dailysignal.com)

Because they can’t admit they were wrong. That would mean that they faked an entire set of stories just to damage a President they didn’t like. Admitting that would destroy what remains of their reputation. Better to just stay silent on the issue, and those that only follow them will never know what happened.

Axios says there’s a “reckoning” in the media over coverage of the Steele dossier after the partisan oppo document’s primary source was charged with lying to the FBI.

“It’s one of the most egregious journalistic errors in modern history,” writes Sara Fischer, “and the media’s response to its own mistakes has so far been tepid.”

Tepid is a nice way of putting it.

While The Washington Post “corrected” some of its discredited reporting on the dossier, removing portions of reporting connecting former President Donald Trump to Russia, there has been virtually no other accountability. And, really, it’s become modus operandi for the news organizations to “correct” stories in which the entire premise is false.

Any sort of “reckoning” would mean a retraction, followed by investigative deep dives, not only reporting the problems with the story themselves, but also outing the fraudulent sources who participated in the deception.

If any of that is happening, it’s just so they can figure out how to not get caught next time. They aren’t upset over their stories. They’re upset they got caught fabricating them.
