7 Media Lies Katie Couric And The Aspen Institute Would Decry If They Really Hated Disinformation
Katie Couric, who has not one but multiple prominent instances of deceptive editing on her journalistic record, is leading Prince “the First Amendment is bonkers” Harry and the rest of the Aspen Institute in sniffing out what they claim is “disinformation” in America.
In an 80-page report released Monday, the Aspen Institute’s “Commission on Information Disorder” calls for “structural changes” to “our information ecosystem” and blames “leaders” and tech companies for not doing enough to combat disinformation, apparently dissatisfied with the Biden White House working in tandem to “flag” misinformation for Facebook censors.
“Disinformation is a symptom; the disease is complex structural inequities,” the report continues. The commission’s recommendations include a “comprehensive federal approach” to misinformation and tougher crackdowns on perceived violators. But instead of cheering more censorship, Couric and the self-serious journalists her report praises should take a long look at some of the misinformation they’ve peddled to the American people over the years. Here are just a few of many, many more.
