The liberal media and their so-called “experts” have been proven wrong time and time again, yet they still insist on pushing their leftist agenda as if it were fact. Take for example the recent train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio. The White House and Transportation Secretary attempted to blame the previous administration for their own poor response to the disaster, but their excuse was quickly debunked by careful reporting from National Review and an expert within the Biden administration.

But that didn’t stop the Washington Post editorial board from echoing a bogus, belated, partisan Biden/Buttigieg attack line. Even though their own fact checker came to a different conclusion, the Post editors ran with the lie. This is just another example of the media’s willingness to push their own political agenda, regardless of the facts.
Welp. The behavior of a certain cadre of scientists who used every trick in the book to suppress discussion of this issue is something I'll never forget. A huge disservice to science and public health. They should be profoundly embarrassed.https://t.co/nZqzjrvo8F

Doesn't this get tiring and embarrassing?
Newsweek, MSNBC etc. keep citing the same "expert" to refer to Republicans as fascists every few months despite her clearly having no idea what the term means. pic.twitter.com/OjKs13RcaD

WaPo editorial is sticking with blaming Trump, even though Biden's NTSB director said that the Obama ECP rule would not have applied to this particular train because of its type.

.@GlennKesslerWP looked at whether the regulations Trump rolled back might have played any role in East Palestine.
The verdict: There's no evidence at this point they did.https://t.co/CZ5mPkiz5Q

America, here's @CBSMMiller lying to your face on @CBS with zero accountability from her cohosts or the network. No book in Florida is "banned statewide," and no book would be permissibly removed from a classroom for "having a black character."
They want you to be misinformed. https://t.co/PF9IMN5WFk

The same goes for Anne Applebaum, a staff writer for The Atlantic. She declared that Hunter Biden’s business relationships had nothing to do with who should be president, yet she was more than willing to discuss Donald Trump Jr.’s affairs. This blatant double standard is typical of the liberal media, who try to bestow credibility upon non-credible actors by labeling them as experts, whose views just so happen to align with their own.
The media’s citation of “experts” who are often hysterical partisans or have spotty records for accuracy only serves to undermine public faith in ‘fact checkers’ and ‘experts.’ It’s time for the liberal media to stop pushing their own political agenda and start presenting the facts in an unbiased way. Otherwise, they will continue to squander public faith and trust.
