There is nothing wrong with negative coverage. Negative coverage that is false is a different kettle of fish.


So you concede that the link you provided had an intentionally misleading statement, using a logical fallacy to imply that negative coverage of Trump in the media is fake news?

Would you think it is reasonable if I also concluded that an average gop.com reader would not be able to spot this fallacy?

They limited the awards to 10. If they wanted to, they could do an American Top 40 like they do (used to do?) with pop songs, and include special categories for foreign false stories.

A top 100 might not be a stretch.

I may be worse than a pimp and his prostitutes according to Owain but at least my company didn't make it on that fake news list! so I got that going for me.

Why do you say that, Goriom? Do you have a quote you want to share that I may have forgotten, or do you just want to make a character slur?

A little from column A, little from column B, and a whole lot of column C.

Rick Gates guilty plea .

Quote
A former top adviser to Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign has agreed to cooperate with the special counsel inquiry into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election after pleading guilty on Friday to financial fraud and lying to investigators.


Lying to investigators is usual entrapment stuff (note: never talk to LEOs without a lawyer present), but financial fraud is more serious.

Derek Thompson on Trump Tax Cuts:
https://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2018/02/trump-gop-tax-cut-narrative/554504/

Quote
If I wrote, “The GOP tax cut is essentially a discount coupon for technology that will raise corporate profits at the expense of labor in the long run,” I’d be telling a reasonable story. If I wrote, “The GOP tax cut is an inflation machine that will raise the price of goods and labor and encourage the Fed to raise rates accordingly, thus punishing corporate profits,” I’d also be telling a reasonable story.
