Too many times these days, the mainstream media will jump on a story before knowing any of the facts to gain political advantage points.
Famed Oklahoma football coach Barry Switzer used and abused the so-called "dishonest media" earlier this month by straight up lying.
According to Politico, Switzer was shopping with his family in New York City when he passed by Trump Tower and decided to go in.
However, Switzer only went upstairs, bought some coffee, and came back down.
"I told the reporters I had a great visit, and that we were going to make the wishbone great again," he said. "I told them I was going to be Secretary of Offense and that Trump knew how to run the ball down the field.
"Then I went back to my hotel and laughed my ass off. It went everywhere. Everyone believed it. I had all these calls, but I was just jerking people around."
