Big U.S. news media Twitter accounts amplify Trump’s lies uncritically 19 times a day: Study (Boing Boing)

Boing Boing: Big U.S. news media Twitter accounts amplify Trump’s lies uncritically 19 times a day: Study. “The study found that major U.S. media outlets amplified Trump’s lies and disinformation over 400 times during the three-week study period, or 19 times per day, without identifying in the same moment that the information is just total bullsh*t and shouldn’t be taken as truth.” [Asterisk added by me.]
