I think part of the problem is the flat dismissal of the idea that alternative facts exist. Of course they do. You can only fit a dozen or so facts into an article, and the number of facts left out are literally infinite. Most are, of course, irrelevant (age of the oldest person on earth, the temperature under my fridge, the apples:potatoes ratio at the nearest grocery store). It is the journalists' job to choose which facts are most salient to a given topic.

And they've chosen more and more poorly over the last 30 years.

So WTF is the temperature under your fridge? You can't leave us hanging like this.
