Facebook's fakery problem

This Week On #MediaBuzz

MOLLIE HEMINGWAY said there's a big disconnect between newsrooms and average Americans on President Trump's attack on the NFL and NBA, with many people concerned about players disrespecting the flag. JOE TRIPPI said the press has fallen into the president's trap in framing the controversy. CHERYL CHUMLEY said the media are forgetting that patriotism is one of Trump's signature issues, but FRANCESCA CHAMBERS said the press has to add the perspective that the president has a history of racially insensitive comments. ERIN McPIKE said Sean Spicer had a difficult job and the media are going overboard in mocking him. SHELBY HOLLIDAY said Jimmy Kimmel's health care crusade has turned off some viewers, and that the leaking of Lawrence O'Donnell's off-air meltdown was an act of revenge. CARLEY SHIMKUS said Facebook can't rely on machines to police such content as bogus Russian propaganda ads, and SHANA GLENZER said Mark Zuckerberg created it as a site for chasing girls and has never put on the proper internal controls.


Ask Howie

I wanted to send an email about your segment with Kellyanne. She should have her own news show so we can learn the POSITIVE news about President Trump! She was 100% on point about the news media about cherry-picking which stories they spin and "report." I know most of the news I read or hear is probably untrue or twisted into some negative story.
