If the mainstream media’s coverage of the situation with Gov. Ralph Northam in Virginia or some of the recent extreme behavior by Democrats in Congress are any indications, the strategy is to somehow deflect the blame from the actual parties involved.

Instead, they blame conservatives and Republicans for … pouncing.

On this point, Ben Shapiro is doing the pouncing.

He’s not wrong.

Should it not be sort of an indictment on the “fact gatherers” that it takes them several turns of the story before they can settle on a narrative?

And the sad part is that too many of them actually believe the lies they report and espouse.

It is as if they dwell in an alternate universe.

Journalists haven’t been practicing actual journalism for years, and it seems as if journalists are the last people on earth to figure that out.
