Yeah, that's why people don't trust the media, a slogan. I don't know why we didn't see it sooner, dammit Jeremy why didn't you speak up! https://t.co/fDGMYrzijp

@jwpetersNYT This reads to me as "ever since they started Fox News, we can't completely control the narrative with our liberal propaganda"
