It's a real shame how thoroughly the mainstream media has embarrassed itself this past week, and at such a crucial time in our nation's history. Palmer Report will keep doing everything possible to force the media to be more honest.
I created Palmer Report specifically to push back against the false narratives that the mainstream media far too often pushes as a result of its own insular tone deafness and desire to score ratings at all costs. This week has been a reminder that there's still work to do.
Fox News is bad enough. But at least people outside that particular bubble generally understand it isn't real. The real damage comes when "trusted" news outlets like NBC or the New York Times go off the rails. The media has been better in 2020 than 2016 – but old habits die hard.
The exasperating thing about these past few years is I've had to take on Trump's BS while also taking on the media's BS.

I look forward to the day when I can simply focus on keeping the media honest, without Trump's nonstop chaos getting in the way.
If that sounds like I'm tilting at windmills, then so be it. But SOMEBODY has to find a way to force the media to be honest. No one has, and look at the mess we're in as a result.

The sitting President of the United States is literally talking about fleeing the country to avoid prosecution for his crimes. Again, this is happening in the United States.

Donald Trump held a rally in Michigan today and he thought he was in Minnesota. Trump recently mistook Matt Gaetz for Rick Gates. Trump used the imaginary word "under-levered" five times in a row. I don't ever want to hear another word about Joe Biden's cognitive abilities again.

The President of the United States is seventeen days out from an election that he's losing by double digits, and instead of trying to turn things around, he's busy calling for multiple members of his own party to be voted out of office for not being sufficiently loyal to him.

1) I've learned additional information about the New York Times' bizarre attack on Palmer Report this week, and as I suspected, it involves lazy journalism, bad sourcing, and what appears to be a bad faith attempt at retaliation. Details in thread.
2) When the NY Times accused Palmer Report of being a "false content producer," it cited a new study from the German Marshall Fund. But that study doesn't even MENTION Palmer Report in its comprehensive, roughly forty paragraph summary of its own findings:…
3) So why did the NY Times single us out, when the study's findings didn't even mention us? The author of the NY Times article told me this: "The researchers did cite Palmer Report to me as an example and you can check in with them on that. I believe they used NewsGuard ratings"

If Donald Trump loses the election and then tries to cut a prison plea deal, he should get no leniency at all.
