Why do we see such blatant misinformation in news reporting? The facts are readily available but news stories seem more about crafting a narrative than about straight-up journalism. Back with us today is Dexter Van Zile (meforum.org), Managing Editor at the Middle East Forum. He looks at how far journalists have gone from fact-based reporters to unashamed ideologues. Worldviews are built inside one's head and narratives, news stories, sound bites, etc. are manufactured around that. He discusses the lengths some will go (censorship) if you call them out on their disingenuous news.
