🧵Please indulge me more on this topic: Yesterday's Bloomberg article misrepresenting Thune's comments on entitlement reform is part of a broader issue:
Most media coverage of Social Security, Medicare & unsustainable debt has long been narrative-driven and, yes, dishonest. (1/)
This is a must-read on how the media no longer notices several stories that fit a theme then form a narrative, but decide on the narrative and then force the stories to fit even when they know they don't.
1/ New from me: If you compare how @onthemedia covered a 2018 mass shooting to how it covered the recent Club Q shooting, you'll see a jarring philosophical shift that is antithetical to journalism
More broken accountability at the International Fact-Checking Network (@factchecknet) and the @Poynter Institute.
The IFCN allows people to register complaints about the its stable of "verified" signatories to its code of principles. @Google and @YouTube $hould pay attention.
