‘The way I’ve always been is to search for truth and ask questions to sift through the lies and find out what’s really going on,’ said Phillips, a writer for one of the school’s student publications. 

Phillip’s noted how he had encountered several ‘legacy media employees’ at the disinformation-themed forum, who had said they spent their careers accusing other news outlets and politicians of spreading the same disinformation they too are often guilty of.  

‘Brian Stelter talks for 30 minutes about how Fox News is this huge purveyor of disinformation. They’re the enemy of the people,’ Phillip’s told Tucker Carlson.

‘And then I come up and I say, Wait a second. Run that back.’

‘Because actually CNN – from what I’ve seen, at least — is probably 10 times the purveyor of disinformation that you claim Fox News to be,’ he added. 

‘And you know, he didn’t really have a great answer for it.’
