How journalism is done.

This segment from Jake Tapper is just perfect.  We need to see so much more journalism like this.  It is not opinion journalism, it is fact-based journalism.

(Slightly longer version at this twitter link that won’t embed).

What I really want to know… does this matter?  Are at least some Trump voters open-minded enough to be upset that he lies so brazenly.  Given what we’ve seen so far, I fear the answer is “not really.”  That said, presumably, over time, even Republicans don’t like being brazenly lied to.  I have no doubt that Trump will continue to brazenly lie.  And the real media (i.e., not Fox News) is clearly ready to step up to the plate.

    Let’s hope Trump follows through with his investigation into his allegations of 3-5 million fraudulent votes in the election. Thirty-one Republican attorneys-general will educate him about their states. Of course California is his prime suspect.
    It’s worth the money to debunk this issue for once and for all.
    More money and effort should be spent tightening up the registration and voter rolls. Sloppy record keeping feeds the suspicions.
