'What journalists market is credibility, by doing an honest job trying to tell true stories. In the process, journalists make mistakes.

There’s no vetting that doesn’t, at times, fail....BUT Trump and his chorus are the pots calling the kettle fake. Trump is a propagandist surrounded by propagandists.
