The liberal media are teed up and ready to go when it comes to ferreting out “false information,” fake news or any kind of information regarding the November midterm elections that doesn’t quite pass the smell test, in their own opinion.
Maybe the problem is who determines what that “false information” is rather than what the “false information” is.
On Tuesday, The New York Times got a reality check from Twitter users when it asked for help in identifying false information “being spread deliberately to confuse, mislead, or influence voters ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.”
As you might expect, many people who responded pointed to the false information coming from The Times itself.
The entertainment value in some of these tweets is priceless.

The Washington Times quoted a few more priceless responses, such as, “Have you checked your op-ed page lately?”
Others included “Buy a mirror,” “Look within,” “Start with every article you publish” and “The offices of Bret Stephens and Maggie Haberman are right down the hall.”
The Times probably didn’t expect to get a pie in the face in response to its request.
It’s good to know that many Americans have wised up to the ways of the liberal media.
