Covington Catholic and the betrayal of trust

My latest at Medium. Journalism is committing suicide:
While some still blame the boys, and others blame Phillips, and others blame Black Israelite activists who were in the area, I blame none of them because nothing newsworthy happened. 
The villains are the first person who lied about the boys saying “Build the Wall!” and the journalists from respected news organizations that spread the lie. The rest of us who condemned the boys are guilty of trusting mainstream news sources. 
Fake news happened, and professional, mainstream journalists allowed it to happen. They piled on. How lazy and biased are they?
