By Mark Baidot, Associated PressAssociated PressWASHINGTON (AP) — The viral meme that President Donald Trump has used to mock news organizations is an outgrowth of a deep-seated conservative bias that has helped shape how the president perceives the world.
That bias is evident even on topics that don’t fall under the president’s purview, such as immigration and climate change.
The president’s most frequent and enduring attacks on news organizations have included false allegations of widespread voter fraud and his criticism of The New York Times for being too sympathetic to Democrats.
In the past year, he has lashed out at Fox News and the liberal advocacy group MoveOn for failing to take a tougher stance on immigration.
The meme, which is known as the “fake news” meme, is a term coined by the president in October to describe the spread of fake news stories that spread quickly on social media and in other ways.
It has become a common rallying cry for Trump’s supporters to attack media organizations and even the U.S. Justice Department over alleged political bias.
The term was first used in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and the Sept, 11, 2014, San Bernardino, Calif., shootings.
Trump tweeted the term during the campaign to mock the media.
The term was used by a number of news organizations, including the Associated Press, which has a history of covering the Trump White House, and the conservative website Breitbart News.
On Twitter, Trump frequently uses the term “fake” to describe news stories, such the spread on social networks of false claims of widespread fraud in the 2016 election, or the false claim that the U!
government orchestrated the San Bernardino attacks.
The word is often used to refer to a fake news story that is widely circulated in the media, including on social platforms.
In a statement on Monday, the AP apologized for using the term to describe stories that it has examined.AP political reporter Mark Berman contributed to this report.
