2/ "Journalists must work to help the public make sense of this great American dumpster fire, and a part of doing that is centering the conversation around the White House’s conflicting versions of reality."
3/ "Much of Trump’s war on the truth appears to be based in exploiting widespread media illiteracy among the citizenry. Journalism is not about striving to appear fair, but maintaining a rigorous objectivity for the purpose of serving the public."
4/ "Ultimate allegiance of press is to our fellow citizens. It is crucial that journalists do better job ....That means calling a lie a lie & if we don’t, then fully providing readers w reason why the word “lie” is not appropriate, along w context"
5/ "Authoritarianism works to corrode our shared foundation of truth, pushing us to a point where we so doubt our own sanity, it becomes too much of a chore to even care what is true. Such is the goal of the Trump administration..."
6/6 "The falsehoods, whoppers, and salesman-like stretches all come down to this: Without the truth, we have no foundation from which to resist."
