The Hill: Breitbart ‘Adding Insult to Injury’ by Exposing Very Fake News Amid Trump Attacks

Latest news

    The Hill’s Jonathan Easley reports that Breitbart’s fact checking of fake news from establishment journalists has led to a series of corrections and retractions — and “the high-profile nature of the errors hurts the media’s credibility at a time when the press is under more scrutiny than ever before.”

    From The Hill:

    A string of high-profile corrections and retractions by major news organizations on stories about President Trump or his allies have fueled more allegations of bias in the mainstream press.

    The relationship between Trump and the news media regularly hits new lows, with insults flying between the two camps and reporters warning that the president is inciting violence against journalists.

    But Trump’s allies on the right believe the president’s claims that the mainstream media is “fake news” have been bolstered by recent missteps. They point to recent admissions from top news outlets — including CNN, the New York Times and the Associated Press — that bombshell stories were either overcooked or included incorrect details.

    Adding insult to injury: Breitbart News, the pro-Trump media outlet that is scorned by many in the mainstream press, has been fact-checking their mainstream counterparts with some success.
