How to Tell if News Is Really News

Press is Not the Enemy, But Nor is it Objective  "Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," had an unfortunate turn of phrase the other day. She said it's the mission of the press to "control exactly what people think."
"My suspicion is that this was less a Freudian slip than a simple slip-up. Brzezinski was referring to her fear that President Trump may be trying to control the way people think by discrediting the media -- whom he calls "enemies of the American people" -- and she lost her rhetorical footing, stumbling into saying that mind control is "our job."
"But the misstatement resonated with a lot of people, as did Trump's claim that the press is an enemy of the people." . . .

How to Tell if News Is Really News . . . "I routinely search sites like lucianne.com and the Drudge report to read the articles posted from all sources. Invariably, news reported by The New York Times, Washington Post, LA Times, Chicago Tribune, New York Daily News, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC,  USA Today, Reuters, Associated Press, AOL, New York Magazine, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair,  Politico and the Daily Beast will be negative and spin events to a particular narrative rather than the truth. Even William Buckley’s revered National Review became a #NeverTrump conclave during the 2016 campaign and still has not had its conservative reputation completely restored." . . .
