Yes, I am counting this as a Merry Month of May post – hey one of the suggested topics is to write about something currently happening in the news! Anyway, since I do want folks to be educated about the quality, or lack thereof, in media – here you go. What gets me is that this isn’t even political in nature – which is when you would think a reporter might have a bias. No, this is simply laziness and wanting to publish some click bait on the most rapidly trending story.
Take this as a lesson in being highly skeptical of even the most mainstream of news sources. One would hope – no, one *should* be able to TRUST that an outlet like ABC News would spend a mere 5 minutes fact checking this claim. Kudos to Vent for sniffing this out. Please read what he found.
