USA Today, the newspaper of “chainsaw bayonet” notoriety, has had even more issues as almost two dozen articles have been removed due to accusations of fabricated sources:

The “journalism” just keeps on coming, and it’s more amazing when taking something else into consideration:

Yes, let’s not forget that the USA Today is one of social media platforms’ go-to “fact-checkers” as of March 2020:

USA TODAY announced today that it is joining Facebook’s Third-Party Fact-Checking Program. As a program partner, USA TODAY, along with other third-party fact-checkers certified through the non-partisan International Fact-Checking Network, will partner to independently review, rate and verify news content on Facebook and Instagram to help prevent the spread of false information.

“As a media organization with unparalleled local-to-national reach, we take our commitment to providing people with truthful information very seriously, and fact-checking is integral to the journalism being done by USA TODAY and in Gannett newsrooms across the country” said Maribel Perez Wadsworth, Gannett’s news leader and Publisher of USA TODAY. “We also recognize that the distribution of false information on social media is a concerning issue that warrants attention in today’s world, so joining Facebook’s fact-checking program to identify misinformation felt like a natural step for us. We are proud to partner with Facebook on a program with such an important mission.”

And yet in light of this most recent example of “journalism,” the media continue to be baffled as to why their credibility has gone completely down the drain.

LOL! You never know. MSNBC might have an opening for her as well.
