Dishonest seems too light a term. To claim bias would be to state the obvious. Incompetence and ineptitude draw closer to the point, but the fathomless depth of incompetence and ineptitude the mainstream media has displayed in the past few years make such words hollow and flippant.
How does one describe the MSM then? The same MSM that hides and denies the dark destabilizing effects of the so-called migrant crisis; the same MSM that was blindsided by the Brexit vote; the same MSM that attempted to convince the world that Trump had no chance of being elected president.
What words can one ascribe to such limitless asininity?
Words are not required.
The MSM is dead. Its existence has been irrevocably invalidated.
The time has come to abandon it.
At the very least, the time has come to see it for what it is and judge its contents and messages accordingly.
