Whitlock said Twitter is the “headquarters for left-wing insanity” and called it “headquarters for fake news.”
“It’s a sad reflection of where we are in the mainstream media today,” Whitlock said.
He added, “Click-bait became the number one currency in the American media and it still is to this day. … [A]ll of it originates from out of northern California and Silicon Valley and San Francisco, and so there’s a political bent to northern California and those values are being shoved down the American media’s throat. New York used to be the headquarters and mecca for the American media … and it has a different set of values than what we’re used to from the mainstream media. The media has always had a liberal bent, but now it’s really far left and extreme.”
