This is why the media needs to change their ways. The fact that people will and can use them to promote a lie and that way help them get what they want is scary at times. If the Media made sure that all they reported on was the truth then it could not be used to make people believe in a lie.
The media is more interested in profits and getting the scoop, which leads to profits, so they don't have time to check out if what they report is true or not. And if it is anti President Trump they start by absolutely believing it if it's bad and then don't look for proof against.
