Your source to mainline the mayhem in mainstream media
After a far-too-long amount of time giving her credence, Florida’s alleged whistleblower Rebekah Jones has been summarily disproven on all of her claims. An Inspector General report finds there was no validity to any of her claims that Florida and Governor Ron DeSantis falsified COVID data. But don’t expect media coverage of this finding to match the prior amount of hype the press granted her claims.
Next, we look at Politifact displaying the top issues with fact-checkers — partisan favoritism, working to disprove a Republican, completely avoiding facts — all in an effort to continue propping up Stacey Abrams.
Then in the Friday Document Dump™, we have a journalist comparing buying a gun to grocery shopping, members of the press flummoxed by emergency exits in schools, Chris Cillizza manipulating a poll, and the New York Times winning the headline writing contest.
Now, crack one open and enjoy some media mockery.
- The FDOH Inspector General report shoots down all of Rebekah Jones’ claims.
- My prior coverage shows that the press had these details over a year ago, as they sold her story.
- PolitiFact tosses the facts over the transom to defend Stacey Abrams.
- The headlines alone should have alerted the fact-checker how far off base they had gone.
- Zach Seward tries to sell the public on the idea you can buy a gun with DoorDash.
- WaPo’s Karen Tumulty finds school fire exit technology baffling.
- Chris Cillizza tells only half of the story behind a recent voters poll.
- You just know the NY Times was sitting on this headline for some time…
And there’s this…
Nobody saw this coming???https://t.co/lzIbVeGix1
