But one common element to much of that reporting hasn't been just bias, but outright misrepresentation and inflammatory politicization of the issue by the establishment media.

The following list covers some of the top media lies about the migrant caravan we've seen over the past month, but this list is by no means exhaustive.

Media Lie No. 1: The migrant caravan has no intention of breaching the border wall.

Media Lie No. 2: The caravan is largely women and children seeking asylum from violence in their home countries.

Media Lie No. 4: Rocks thrown at border patrol agents are not any kind of threat.

Media Lie No. 5: Trump's separation of children is outrageous and unprecedented.
