We the media have “fact-checked” President Trump like we have fact-checked no other human being on the planet—and he’s certainly given us plenty to write about. That’s probably why it’s so easy to find lists enumerating and examining his mistakes, missteps and “lies.”
But as self-appointed arbiters of truth, we’ve largely excused our own unprecedented string of fact-challenged reporting. The truth is, formerly well-respected, top news organizations are making repeat, unforced errors in numbers that were unheard of just a couple of years ago.

Our repeat mistakes involve declaring that Trump’s claims are “lies” when they are matters of opinion, or when the truth between conflicting sources is unknowable; taking Trump’s statements and events out of context; reporting secondhand accounts against Trump without attribution as if they’re established fact; relying on untruthful, conflicted sources; and presenting reporter opinions in news stories—without labeling them as opinions.


What’s worse, we defend ourselves by trying to convince the public that our mistakes are actually a virtue because we (sometimes) correct them. Or we blame Trump for why we’re getting so much wrong. It’s a little bit like a police officer taking someone to jail for DUI, then driving home drunk himself: he may be correct to arrest the suspect, but he should certainly know better than to commit the same violation.
So since nobody else has compiled an updated, extensive list of this kind, here are:

The Media is not the President of the United States. Whether the media lies has nothing...absolutely nothing to do with Trump's constantly lying.


I don't need anyone to tell me Donald Trump lies. I hear, with my own ears, his constant lying.

It is not a matter of opinion. it is Donald Trump telling bald face lies. Never will Trump or Trump supporters ever hold him to his actions.

Personal responsibility. Donald Trump and his supporters are constantly blaming everyone else for Trump's action. It's never Donald.

It is remarkable...Donald Trump has never done anything wrong or told one lie since his election. Remarkable.
