Real Fakes

"A journalist makes himself the hero of the story. A reporter is only a witness."
--Jim Cleary (Deadline U.S.A.)

In a timely follow up on yesterday's post, Glenn Greenwald dissects the Washington Post's shoddy work in their reporting on venues deemed to be 'fake news' outlets. As noted yesterday, it could hardly be more ironic that an outlet whose product is consistently slanted is accusing others of reporting 'fake news.'

The longer WaPo and other mainstream media sources cling to such absurd threads, the more likely it is that their brands will lose any equity that they have left.
