How Trump's rally lies are treated by almost all media: just ignored. Blumenthal didn't say many of the things Trump claimed he said; Feinstein didn't say the things Trump claimed she said; Trump still got the attacks into the New York Times unquestioned.…
In other words: not only do mainstream stories on Trump's speeches habitually decline to point out the fact that Trump made somewhere between 15 and 30 false claims, they often include the false attacks or boasts without even a mild correction.
Precisely: Trump tells the same lies over and over, and almost all have been fact checked by WaPo, me, AP, PolitiFact, You can go into a speech with a list of corrections in a second Word doc, ready to be pasted into the story.
I should note that the NYT, specifically @YLindaQiu, is doing some excellent, regular fact-checking of Trump:…. I just don't think it should be left to fact-checkers to clean up later - should be a hallmark of the main coverage.
