I might be wrong but don't people in the military have to get vaccinated for like literally everything before they can serve?

Okay, now do CBC, Global, The Globe and Mail, The Guardian, CNN, Vice and the Ottawa Citizen, all of whom ran the same story.

The Columbia Journalism Review describes Media Bias/Fact Check as an amateur attempt at categorizing media bias and Van Zandt as an "armchair media analyst."[2] The Poynter Institute notes, "Media Bias/Fact Check is a widely cited source for news stories and even studies about misinformation, despite the fact that its method is in no way scientific."[3]

Considering Van Zandt is a lawyer and has a PhD in political science, he probably has the chops to run a site like Media Bias/Fact Check and be fairly accurate with it. It may not be perfect, but it's an effort. Based on the ratings they come up with, I'd say they're pretty accurate.

Oh and btw, that Columbia Journalism review article is from a freelance journalist.

I'd say your RT article is one of those broken clock efforts. That you would use the RT article considering there were many other reputable sources you could have used is telling.

I think it’s interesting how little progressives critique mainstream corporate news media post Donald Trump.

That doesn't describe me. I was aware of other news sources running the story. Thought it interesting to let you all know the Arabs are watching you.

If they serve up fake news a lot of the time why bother reading it at all?

It's like if you've been to a restaurant a few times and the food is bad and some friends say they had bad experiences there too do you continue to go to the same restaurant or do you go somewhere else instead?
