The Media: Stupid or Dishonest?

  “I don’t think our media is really this dumb,” Hot Air’s John Sexton writes. “Rather, I think they’re being intentionally dishonest.” The subject was CNN’s coverage of the “migrant caravan”: It started when CNN’s John Berman introduced the story this way: “U.S. border patrol agents deployed tear-gas on Central Americans seeking asylum, this does include […]
