Harari has a lot of questions for the media: “How do you know that the story is true?” he asked.
“How many times do you read it?
How many times does the writer make it up?
How often do you ask the question?
How much effort do you put into reading and rereading it?
“You don’t have to know anything about mass media to see this. “
So, the idea of mass media as being a whole, not just the mass media is a lie,” he continued.
“You don’t have to know anything about mass media to see this.
So it’s a lie.
And a lie.” “
It’s an excuse.
And a lie.”
In his remarks, Harari also accused the media of having “a very narrow view of what is true.”
“We have a view that the news is good, the world is beautiful, that the world has a better future than the world we live in.
“And that’s the problem with the mass-media. “
But I don’t think it’s accurate, or I don’s not think it is true,” he added.
“And that’s the problem with the mass-media.
It’s not the truth.”
He said mass media stories “do not reflect reality.”
And he said he believed the media “does a lot to tell lies about the people, the policies and the events that are happening in the world.”
Harari’s comments echo those of Trump, who earlier this week accused the mainstream media of being “a lot more dishonest” than the press itself, saying “there’s a huge difference between a lie and a hoax.”
“I don’t care what you call it, they lie,” Trump said of the media, saying that “they have a very narrow, almost religious view of truth.”
“So you have this very selective view of who you can trust.
And so they’re really going to put out stories that are going to make them look bad.
That’s the way they make money.”
In recent weeks, Trump has accused journalists of “lying about everything” and has criticized the media for “not reporting the truth” about the president.
“I have a different view of the press than many of my people, and I think that the media is dishonest,” Trump told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos earlier this month.
“They lie a lot.”
And in an interview with the New York Times’ Charlie Rose on Friday, Trump suggested that the New Yorker magazine was “a little bit biased.”
“They’re all biased,” Trump added.
