All of them do it online … distort reality in the name of earning ad revenues … major broadcast networks … Huffington Post … political sites of all ideological ilk. They need a election horse race in order to attract readers … even when one does not exist. Worship the sensational … ignore reality … ignore facts … these are not informing the public of anything but “look at us!!”
