The Old Media loathes the New Media as unreliable, and have no right to pass judgment. Increasingly they are prone to leap into news stories based on their own liberal networks of social media. Look no further than the new Indiana religious freedom law. They could not get enough of those angry tweets from Hillary Clinton and public-policy geniuses like Miley Cyrus.
Based on Twitter, they touted a "growing outrage" from coast to coast and obsessed over Indiana's "bigotry" for days. Conservative social media also reacted to the Hoosier contretemps forcefully in the opposite direction, but apparently it's too much to expect "objective" journalists to notice too much of that.
