American Pravda

Since I get most of my news from the NYT and WP, I sometimes like to see how big stories, like Flynn and broader Trump/Russia stories today, are getting played in other media.  Quite appropriately, CNN and USA Today have serious coverage of Flynn and Trump administration dysfunction on the matter.  Fox, not so much.  I went to their homepage and searched on Flynn.  Pretty much everything that came up (including that beyond the top scroll on my screen) was apologia or only the most mildly negative.

As much as the genuinely unfair and distorted coverage of the Obama administration was wrong and annoying, this is so much worse.  This is hardly different from Pravda under Stalin.  Fortunately, unlike the Soviets, we also get real news.  But damn!
