"Call falsehoods precisely what they are"

Don’t miss The Gazetteer today. RossK offers What’s That You Say…Both Sides Don’t Do It?, providing this advice to MSM:

“…We understand the values of mainstream journalists, including the effort to report both sides of a story. But a balanced treatment of an unbalanced phenomenon distorts reality…

…Our advice to the press: Don’t seek professional safety through the even-handed, unfiltered presentation of opposing views. Which politician is telling the truth? Who is taking hostages, at what risks and to what ends?…”

Or, put another way, call demonstrable falsehoods precisely what they are.
