your first mistake is watching broadcast news your second is watching cnn of all places, as they are basically the onion of news, only they don't realize it's completely nonsense. They, last i checked, were sourcing the NYT arctical the frames the topic about how trump didn't pay a dime, or rather 750 dollars in 2016 and again later. however what they like to do and what's rather hilarious, is that they themselves then debunk their own claims by admitting that he paid several millions, within the same article. Granted most people only read the first paragraph or the bullshit headline and call it a day, and of course since modern news media does nothing but circle jerk each other, no one actually checks sources properly, no one provides context ever, it's all the driven narrative of what they WANT people to hear and of course drives people to insane claims and thinking they know the critical information when they no the complete opposite. remember, bad information is better than none at all, it's hard to drive a news network that lacks any journalists at all, specially if you plan on having advertisers as well combined with ratings to get people sucked in.
