Four recent examples of why we don't trust the media

At The Federalist, Mollie Hemingway shows how the New York Times did an unsubstantiated hit piece on Rick Perry, the Washington Post mocked former Georgia governor Sonny Perdue for praying (he is Trump's pick for Agriculture Secretary), the Post also called David Gelernter Anti-Intellectual in an unnecessarily hostile banner headline.
The story interviews only one person — a member of a far-left advocacy group who admits he has no knowledge of Gelernter.

Rather than speak to people who know Gelernter, his tremendous work, and even his controversies, the Post went for an uninformed hit.
Gelernter was interviewed as the possible Trump pick for Science Advisor.

The fourth example was CNN's Jim Acosta badgering MLK JR III to say something bad about Trump in reference to Georgia Representative John Lewis.
