Federalist – There was a whole lot of fake news flying around the television airwaves in 2017.
Remember that time “The View” co-host Joy Behar threw her hands up in the air and cheered when it was reported that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was going to testify against President Trump? Yeah, that was totally fake news. The reporter who wrote the story, Brian Ross, was suspended from his job at ABC News over the incident.
Earlier this year, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski let it slip that she thinks it’s the news media’s job to tell Americans what to think.
In the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting, many media pundits blamed Republicans and mocked their calls for thoughts and prayers for the victims of the horrible tragedy.
