    The Associated Press decided last month to capitalize the word "Black" when writing about race and culture. On Monday, the AP chose not to capitalize the word "white" because "white people in general have much less shared history and culture, and don’t have the experience of being discriminated against because of skin color."

    Last week, several mainstream media journalists ran with an out-of-context quote from White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany. At first glance, it made it look like she was saying President Trump was willing to ignore science to get kids to return to public school classrooms in the fall. To quickly recap, here's an example courtesy of CNN's Jim Acosta of what many reporters posted to their Twitter feeds shortly after the Thursday press briefing:

    As we've previously documented, if it's a day ending in "y," it's also one where mainstream media reporters are going to take a Republican out of context and spread fake news stories about them because of narratives and Orange Man Bad. The most recent example of this happening was Thursday during the daily White House press briefing. The issue of whether or not public schools should fully reopen has been a hot topic of much discussion in recent days. President Trump has pushed for in-person school attendance while some governors are opting for a combination of either in-person schooling and remote/online learning, or remote instruction only.

    Mainstream media reporters are fond of lavishing praise on and treating with reverence any prominent Republican (or former Republican) who declares themselves to be a part of the #NeverTrump coalition. Words like "principled" and "courageous" are often tossed around when describing the work the #NeverTrump leaders in the "Lincoln Project" PAC are doing in allegedly exposing President Trump as an inauthentic conservative.
