I am definitely saving that list.

It needs refinement and cleaning up but it's not too bad for a quick summary.
I'm sure I could think of many more as well if I really put my mind to it.
In fact, I'd like to add more to it later. Problem is remembering a giant list of misinformation, lies, misrepresentations, smears, etc. It happens so often.

Covington Kids is a great place to start the list. It was SO flagrant and SO badly 'reported' yet they just 'doubled down' and stuck to the fake story. Everything they said was a lie, the video to tell the truth was available within an hour (maybe less) but completely ignored. & etc.

Newsome's dinner without masks or distancing
Nancy Pelosi getting her hair done
Obama's birthday party
Jacob Blake was 'just visiting his son' and 'trying to stop 2 women from fighting' & all that.

Don't even get started on Trayvon Martin. "He was getting Ice Tea and candy for his little brother!" He was getting Watermelon Punch and an ingredient for Lean which he used far too often for his health and mental fitness... But the Media censored any mention of "Watermelon Punch" because... that's racist!

Absolutely right. They didn't care. They made it plainly apparent is was completely about pushing an agenda. Which is exactly why Nick Sandmann ended up being CNN's highest paid contributor in the end.

Those are some great additions as well. There's been so many that it's genuinely hard to keep track.

I think I might make a long term project of that. Cleaning it up to the most obvious ones and egregious ones.

Yup. That's what I'm already doing. Although right now it's just in a messy list form, it'll help to clean it, cite sources/examples and turn it into an ever-growing list that can be used to throw at consumer sheep whenever they say that people should trust the news — which still blows my mind that they do.
I was even able to add a couple more already, too.

  • Downplaying the Hatian Border Crisis
  • Pretending the "leaked" preliminary recount was representative of the actual audit in Arizona

I'm just going to keep building because it will be useful in an age of Information Warfare.
