The Washington Post Proves it Doesn’t Care About Actual Journalism
Ever since Donald Trump was elected President, the Washington Post’s new motto has been “Democracy Dies in Darkness”. The paper even went as far as to air a commercial during the Super Bowl that was centered around this message.
The core idea behind the Washington Post’s motto is that, without fair, honest, and dedicated journalism, democracy cannot survive. This sentiment is completely correct. However, the manner in which the Washington Post and other liberal media outlets apply it is entirely off base.
The Washington Post sees President Trump’s feud with the media as a threat to journalism. Rather than combat this supposed threat by performing their role in American politics to the best of their ability, the Washington Post has chosen to fight Trump head-on through phony journalism designed to bring him down.
While it is true that democracy dies in darkness, democracy dies in phony journalism as well. It isn’t enough that the media is allowed to say whatever they want; in order for the fourth estate to fulfill its role, they must only say what is accurate and verifiable. In this regard, the Washington Post has fallen woefully short.
