In the ongoing saga to ‘Get Trump,’ social media influencers, activist groups, grassroots marketing platforms, and even corporate media have degraded themselves to the point of publishing outright rumors and gossip without validating sources, or their sources have produced hoaxed documents, in an attempt to influence public opinion with fake news.
This year, it appears that all journalistic ethics and morals have been thrown out the window, while media corporations do little to defend themselves from defamation lawsuits.
In the run-up to the 2024 elections, with Donald J. Trump as the front-runner, attempts to take him out of the race are a multi-billion dollar industry, with digital media serving as a “Lady of the Night” for the highest bidder.
Integrity is no longer a characteristic of the leading producers of news content.
In April, the media reported a ‘riches to tatters’ story about a political operative named Will Wilkerson who disclosed documents to the federal government about President Donald J. Trump’s Truth Social network.
Even the radical far-left media organization, The Washington Post, reported on Wilkerson’s disclosed documents, which is notable because they are now named in an enormous defamation lawsuit for publishing Wilkerson’s defamatory story.
