We always love it when the media fully exposes their lack of self-awareness for all to see, and ABC News has provided today’s example:
Disinformation is everywhere. Here's how to sort real news from fake news. https://t.co/Ddzl6wVcg4

Has ABC News not been paying attention to what’s been happening with ABC News (and MANY other media outlets) lately?
ABC should know what disinformation is!

List the number of times abc, cbs, nbc, pbs, msnbc, nyt, etc have had to retract all their FALSE reports. Usually on page 12 in a little notice at bottom of the page.

Like the disinformation you see up in relation to sticking up and hiding proof of Epstein's pedophilia? Haha

Perhaps you should have trained your news staff before they aired the FAKE Syrian/Turkey bombing footage from the Kentucky gun range exercise!

Yep, ABC News should definitely clean up their own house before lecturing anybody else about how to do “journalism” right:
ABC News apologized Monday for mistakenly running a video that apparently was taken at a gun range in Kentucky with a report about Turkish attacks in northern Syria. https://t.co/4ZgUzobiPi

But sure, keep lecturing everybody about how to spot “fake news,” ABC News — it’s going great.
