Donald Trump and his clan have been trying to discredit the media for years. The media seldom push back against the false accusations from this corrupt leader. It seems that is changing.

The media is fighting back against Trump and his misinformers by pointing out their lies and making sure Americans understand their lying techniques. Earlier this year the New York Times put out the following video.

They flashed a lot of information, many portrayed as the truth that could only be read in some instances by stopping frame after frame in a video editor. Some statements are definitely true, some are in the grey area. And some are completely false. They end the commercial pointing out that getting to the truth can be difficult. But that is their job.

New York Times' ad on truth and facts slowed down to make it readable

The truth is our nation is more divided than ever. The truth is alternative facts are lies. The truth is the media is dishonest. The truth is a woman should dress like a woman. The truth is women's rights are human rights. The truth is we have to protect our borders. The truth is refugee policy is a backdoor Muslim ban. The truth is we need a full investigation of Russian ties. The truth is leaking classified information is the real scandal. The truth is climate change is a hoax. The truth is the Supreme Court seat was stolen. The truth is this country was built by immigrants. The truth is 600,00 immigrants will be let in. The truth is the emails are dangerous. The truth is we do not know who is responsible. The truth is black lives matter is a simple statement of fact. The truth is all lives matter. The truth is we need new restrictions on gun control. The truth is our gun problem is bigger than mass shootings. The truth is we should support the president no matter what. The truth is he's not interested in uniting the country. The truth is we have a crime epidemic in our cities today. The truth is there is no evidence of voter fraud. The truth is Obamacare isn't affordable. The truth is we need to police the police. The truth is pro-life women weren't invited to the march. The truth is this administration has stumbled. The truth is executive orders have gone too far. The truth is banks need to be monitored. The truth is we must hold free speech sacred.

The truth is hard to find. The truth is hard to know. The truth is more important now than ever.

The CNN's ad is more in-your-face. In effect, it tells Americans to use common sense and stop being gullible.

CNN educating Americans on alternative facts

This is an apple. Some people might try to tell you that it is a banana. They might scream, "banana, banana, banana.," over and over and over again. They might put bananas in all caps. You might even start to believe that this is a banana. But it is not. But it is not. This is an apple. Facts first.

One hopes all media will come out swinging against the deception by this president going forward.
