“As a former liberal who used to buy what the media reported without much if any questioning as to whether or not what they were reporting was accurate or biased, and as a conservative who gets messages from non-political junkie friends almost every day asking me if I’ve seen this headline or that, I can confirm just from my own experiences that this is the mindset for many people who are misinformed.

For various reasons, whether they’re too busy to scan down into the meat of an article or beyond the headline/edited video clip they see on Twitter, or are just too lazy to do so, a substantial number of Americans are being spoonfed heaping doses of fake or half-baked news on a weekly basis and most don’t know it, and oftentimes deliberately so on the part of the media – with the Rittenhouse case being a prime example of this.”
