In January 2019, Glenn Greenwald over at The Intercept did a fantastic job scathingly documenting “The 10 Worst, Most Embarrassing U.S. Media Failures on the Trump-Russia Story,” during President Trump’s first two years of presidency, but rather than learning from their “most embarrassing” failures, in 2019, they pushed even more mortifying and humiliating “fakes news,” hoaxes, all stemming from the MSM’s collective Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS).

Greenwald wrote back then:
But in homage to BuzzFeed’s past viral glory, following are the top ten worst media failures in two-plus-years of Trump/Russia reporting. They are listed in reverse order, as measured by the magnitude of the embarrassment, the hysteria they generated on social media and cable news, the level of journalistic recklessness that produced them, and the amount of damage and danger they caused. This list was extremely difficult to compile in part because news outlets (particularly CNN and MSNBC) often delete from the internet the video segments of their most embarrassing moments. Even more challenging was the fact that the number of worthy nominees is so large that highly meritorious entrees had to be excluded, but are acknowledged at the end with (dis)honorable mention status.
Like Greenwald, when putting together the list below, it was difficult to choose which media humiliations were the worst in my mind, and others will undoubtedly have certain examples that they feel were more mortifying than others, and readers are encouraged to add their examples in the comment section below.
While compiling the list below, what struck me as very interesting is that even the inaccurate, fake news and outright hoaxes the media perpetuated on the American public that did not directly involve Russia, Ukraine, impeachment, or President Trump, all stemmed from the liberal establishment media’s own biases and their sheer determination to turn every disturbing story into an “Orange Man Bad” narrative.
MEDIA TRIES TO DESTROY COVINGTON CATHOLIC STUDENTS OVER MAGA HAT
What the media did to the Covington Catholic students tops the list because not only did their TDS cause them to report a narrative with absolutely no investigation or research, but they defamed these young students to the point where they received death threats online and offline.
Long story as short as we can make it: On January 18, 2019, a bunch of Covington Catholic students were at the Lincoln Memorial where they were being harassed by a group of Black Hebrew Israelites. An elderly Indian man, Nathan Phillips then approached the students, walking straight into the group of them, pounding his drum in one of the students face.
The initial selectively edited clip that instantly went viral on social media made it look quite different than what the entire video showed, falsely portraying the students as aggressors.

The media jumped on that narrative without doing even the basic amount of confirmation and verification, yet when the full video was published and by the time the entire big picture had emerged, two days after the actual incident, some media outlets refused to correct their original reporting.
