The Oregon quarterback sat down with Yahoo Sports’ Tank Williams at the NFL combine in Indianapolis to discuss the conference’s perception abroad and how quarterbacks are asked more to rely on their legs.
SD: This is exactly what has been wrong with the media since Trump took office. Trump says something demonstrably false, and instead of just presenting "This is what Trump said and it is wrong. This is the truth." News networks have a "panel" and invite someone to explain why Trump's lie is not a lie and they add legitimacy to his falsehoods. Instead of something that is objectively a lie being a lie, it now becomes a matter of opinion. And it is the media that made this happen. "The actual truth here is easily verifiable: there are not enough tests, the governors are right, and the president is wrong. This is not a matter of opinion or debate. It is not a contrast of two different approaches to the issue, where we cannot be sure which one has greater merit. One is grounded in reality, the other is completely absurd."
