In April 2015, Howard Portnoy wrote a piece reflecting on the abuse of  the journalistic “correction” by major media outlets in the era of Donald Trump. Long employed as a forthright admission of error, corrections nowadays are cynically tweeted by media sources that deliberately publish false stories about the president or his administration. So deep does the Left’s hatred of Trump run that they have lost all sense of purpose and integrity.

An example of the Trump Derangement Syndrome epidemic that has infected the media writ large can be found in the following mix tape courtesy of NewsBusters. As research analyst Bill D’Agostino writes:

The media hastily have distanced themselves from their projections of street brawls and naked partisanship at the Salute to America event following a largely patriotic, unobjectionable July 4 speech by President Trump. Since TV news audiences are unlikely to hear talking heads acknowledge their numerous false predictions, here is a reminder of the worst of the bunch — ranging from the cynical to the absurd.
