"The media are terrible at their damn jobs," Mr. Shapiro said. "I mean terrible at their jobs because it turns out that many of them are not interested in being honest. ... The media is all about jumping to conclusions, about creating the clickable piece, about ensuring that they are the first on a story even if they are dead wrong on a story. We saw this over and over and over the last 72 hours. Multiple stories the media put out were outright false. At the very least they were biased, twisted, selectively edited. I haven't seen a weekend this bad for the media in a long time, and it's disgusting."
Mr. Shapiro, an Orthodox Jew, said during a live taping of his podcast.
