A Teen Vogue writer recently attempted to defend “inaccuracies” in journalism by claiming that the Bible is the same as “fake news.”
The Blaze reports:
A liberal writer for Teen Vogue magazine was recently taken to the woodshed on Twitter after she tried to downplay the mainstream media’s “fake news” reputation by alleging that the Bible is riddled with tons of inaccuracies.
Lauren Duca, a columnist for Teen Vogue, wrote on Twitter Monday: “Folks, if you think there are too many mistakes in modern journalism, let me tell you about inaccuracies in this one book called ‘The Bible.’”

The issue of the media being filled with dishonest and biased reporting has been a hot topic for decades — especially over the last two years. That’s because criticizing the mainstream media was a central point of President Donald Trump’s winning campaign strategy, likely because it legitimized many Americans’ belief that the press is out of touch.
The paradigm of “fake news” media has been strengthened this year by the clear dividing line between Trump and the mainstream media. On one hand, Trump is outspoken about his disdain for the media, and on the other, the media is clear about its disdain for him.
What an awful message to send to young readers!
