Memo to the media: Stop spreading Trump’s fake news

Greg Sargent in The Washington Post:

It is a great irony of the current political moment: By broadcasting forth Trump’s lies in tweets and headlines — while declining to inform readers that they are just that, and while burying the truth deep within accompanying articles — the organizations that Trump regularly derides as “fake news” are themselves spreading a species of fake news.

We were Brett Kavanaugh’s drinking buddies. We don’t think he should be confirmed.

Opiniestuk bij The Washington Post met de beste argumentatie die ik deze week las:

None of us condemned Brett for his frequent drunkenness. We drank too much in college as well.

En vooral deze prachtige zinnen:

For we each believe that telling the truth, no matter how difficult, is a moral obligation for our nation’s leaders. No one should be able to lie their way onto the Supreme Court. Honesty is the glue that holds together a society of laws. Lies are the solvent that dissolves those bonds.
