Matt Schlapp, the American Conservative Union Chairman, was recently interviewed on CNN where he made the claim that informing the public when the president or his administration is lying shouldn’t be the job of journalists. Instead, journalists should just present Trump’s statements and let the American people decide what information is factual.
Schlapp, a frequent guest on Fox News, said:
“We have political disagreements in this country, and I think it’s wrong for journalists to take that next step. Just present the facts. Let the American people decide if they think someone is lying. The journalist shouldn’t be the one to say the president or his spokesperson is lying, because what that does is to 50 percent of the country, is it makes them feel like they aren’t credible to listen to anymore.”
So, journalists shouldn’t point out when Trump or any lawmaker isn’t being truthful because it might hurt people’s feelings?
I guess it's apparent who the real snowflakes are now.
