As the dominant media in the United States have degenerated into propaganda organs for the Left, a few honest reporters have distinguished themselves by sticking to the truth, even as it has cost them their high-visibility posts. Sharyl Attkisson, a three-decade veteran of MSM broadcasting who was spied on by the Obama administration (her computer was intruded upon) and is fighting back (she needs your support!), is holding her former MSM colleagues responsible for their excesses in attacking President Trump.
Now she is compiling a growing list of notable media mistakes in reporting false stories about President Trump. It's the Fake News Follies. In the introduction, she turns the tables on them:
We the media have "fact-checked" President Trump like we have fact-checked no other human being on the planet — and he's certainly given us plenty to write about. That's probably why it's so easy to find lists enumerating and examining his mistakes, missteps and "lies."
But as self-appointed arbiters of truth, we've largely excused our own unprecedented string of fact-challenged reporting. The truth is, formerly well-respected, top news organizations are making repeat, unforced errors in numbers that were unheard of just a couple of years ago.
Our repeat mistakes involve declaring that Trump's claims are "lies" when they are matters of opinion, or when the truth between conflicting sources is unknowable; taking Trump's statements and events out of context; reporting secondhand accounts against Trump without attribution as if they're established fact; relying on untruthful, conflicted sources; and presenting reporter opinions in news stories — without labeling them as opinions.

Oh, this is gonna be good.
The media has chosen the side that hates this country. It is attempting to engineer the destruction of Donald Trump who loves this country.
Are they mistakes, or outright lies?
Media mistakes? Don’t pull your punches,Sharyl....they’re media *lies*.
Number 2 I believe they believed it. I think Hillary believed it as well. They all believed their own fantasies.
