#1 Malpractice: The Journalistic Assassination Of Ryan Lochte by Cincinnatus 28.08.2016 16:29


The Lochte story is not what you think it is. The MSM, in fact, with the exception of USA Today, failed to do its job and investigate the truth behind the accusations against Lochte and his teammates.

Even when journalists are there on the scene, like they were in Rio, the idea of venturing beyond the safe space of the narrative is a bridge too far. Smear first, retract (maybe) later. Why check the biggest story of the day when the narrative is so juicy? If the media can do it to an Olympic swimmer, or people know one has ever heard of, they can (and try) do it to politicians. What’s to stop them from doing it to you if you find yourself on the wrong side of their narrative? The answer is simple: nothing is stopping them.

A highly recommended read: http://townhall.com/columnists/derekhunt...lochte-n2209533 and the original USA Today upon which it is based: http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/oly...ities/89082232/

It's really quite simple. The MSM cannot be trusted to report the truth about much of anything. Weather and sports scores, maybe, and that's about it.
