Fake news in all its horrific glory.
I made this years before Trump and his “fake news” horseshit came along. Having said that though, I’m talking about the same kind of biased reporting that he is, just from the opposite side of the political spectrum.
The only regret I have about this piece is using the bible quote at the bottom:
“My house is the house of prayer but ye have made it a den of thieves” – Luke 19:46.
That feels a wee bit heavy-handed – it’s quite a stretch to think of modern journalism as ever being like “a house of prayer”! I was probably imagining it said by Hunter S Thompson on a rant about the purity of investigation and reporting or some such thing….
