@kamuleosaurus @theintercept Concur. But I think there's a massive difference between a false tweet about crowd size (which was acknowledged and apologized for quickly) and the daily barrage of misinformation we're having to process every day.
RT @gemko: Oh, it’s the Top 10 Errors That Were Speedily Retracted, Because Journalists Actually Do Care About Truth, As Opposed To Oh Say…
@kamuleosaurus @theintercept My point is that journalists are fallible. It doesn't mean they're acting in bad faith or pushing some pernicious agenda. Hot-takeism leads to mistakes, as does the withered backstop of editors and fact-checkers. But you can't point to this as evidence of deliberate action.
@theJoshChurch Oh man, Josh. I honestly thought I had the personnel to make a run once Kawhi came back-- and, well, things have not gone well. I feel I've lost the locker room-- at least the ones who aren't in surgery right now.
@kamuleosaurus Because it's impossible to be perfect. What's missing from the Fake News Awards is any evidence of a deliberate campaign of falsehoods generated by the news media. Many of these are minor errors that outlets have addressed openly.
