Will media admit to being duped? Nope


I’ll bet a lot of reporters and editors and talking heads hated Krugman for stating the obvious a week before the midterms:

But here’s the thing: Trump supporters aren’t the only people trying to pretend that he’s only doing what everyone does, that Democrats are just as bad and equally liable for the explosion of hatred. False equivalence, portraying the parties as symmetric even when they clearly aren’t, has long been the norm among self-proclaimed centrists and some influential media figures. It’s a stance that has hugely benefited the GOP, as it has increasingly become the party of right-wing extremists.

False equivalence. Let’s present the Trump’s scary “caravan” story as if were factual. even though it is transparently false.  (Not all of the journalists who operate this way work at Fox News.)
