‘It’s Tragic’: Glenn Greenwald Laments Destruction Of Media Credibility, Pinpoints ‘Trump Years’ As Breaking Point


Journalist Glenn Greenwald on Tuesday lamented how historically trustworthy major corporate news outlets have destroyed their own credibility, especially during the years of the Trump administration.

“I’ve been a critic of corporate media outlets for 15 years but always assumed one could get basic facts (even if flawed) by reading them. I now no longer think this,” Greenwald tweeted. “Their journalistic and business model makes me distrust everything I read there.”

“Every major outlet has some good reporters trying (and sometimes succeeding) to do good journalism,” he continued. “But the ideological and business model of these outlets, developed from the Trump years, makes most of what they publish unreliable. That’s not something to celebrate. It’s tragic.”
