Shame as it may be, there are reasons why skepticism is warranted when digesting much of today’s mainstream media reporting. Namely, tweets like the following one from ABC.
Protesters in California set fire to a courthouse, damaged a police station and assaulted officers after a peaceful demonstration intensified. https://t.co/fUZTABUM21

You just wonder how those words became arranged in such a way … all in one tweet.
"Peaceful demonstration intensified…" https://t.co/3EOp4yRH9g

That is literally what the tweet is saying.
"A peaceful demonstration intensified" is the most Orwellian phrase I've heard so far. https://t.co/L7KvrYaMVK

Social media enthusiasts distorted, diluted and obfuscated a group of facts after a journalistic demonstration intensified.
If it was just a little less irritating – even a little – there'd be something almost admirable about journalists' commitment to leftwing ideology, that they'd be willing to so consistently & self-parodically disintegrate their industry's credibility to advance their narratives. https://t.co/M6aod84bNV

There is solid news reporting out there. Sadly, it’s very difficult to find.
