Roger Kimball at PJ Media wrote a telling article titled, “News, Fake News, Very Fake News: A Primer,” that reveals the immoral underpinnings of the mainstream media in its efforts to use lies, half-truths, distortions, and when available, actual truths to undermine and eventually destroy the Presidency of Donald J Trump.
