We should feel ashamed that we let Trump be the one to call out “fake news”

I have recently come around to the position that Trump’s attacks on the news media are wrong specifically, and only, because he is the president. Though I think the news media in 2016 (and before and since) deserved a ton of criticism and skepticism, I have decided that it should have been us. The fact that we let it get to this point is gross to me. Please, either prove me wrong that Trump’s attacks are justified, or that the media deserves more credit.

I think both media sides are terrible. I don’t understand why there can’t be an unbiased news outlet.

Profit Motive mostly. Objective news is bland, usually vague, and doesn’t really sell. Tbh it would probably suck, not to mention would be constantly fought over
