Liberal and conservative media are too often fed by clickbait. Yet guilt by association pandering and gotcha headlines have real-world consequences for communities.
For my Thoughts on Journalism essay “3 Conservative Media Myths About CPB, and Why They’re Wrong,” I cite several examples of bad conservative media and why the claims are fallacious. I say “bad conservative media” because not all conservative media is bad. Unfortunately, there’s a bit of it that comes across as vengeful and partisan, rather than aimed at fiscal and cultural responsibility.
