Which one of these two photographs generated overwhelming news reports and analysis? You already know the answer.
DUDE! MERKEL HATES TRUMP! It’s indicative of the way the WORLD HATES TRUMP! Write the story! Post it! Talk about it! Trump RUINED OUR STANDING IN THE WORLD!
Oh wait. Here’s a different photo from the same meeting. But don’t write stories about this. Acrimony is clickbait.
This kind of false hysteria is why our media business is melting down. Partisan reporting has crushed our credibility as people now cling to flavored news that is skewed to their personal bias. Sad!
It's all in the editing. @weijia asks @realDonaldTrump a question and then shouts him down as he replies. @NBCNews edits clip to show Trump saying "Quiet!" to incite anger. Full clip from Fox. NBC edit here https://t.co/QOc177Gidi #media #manipulation #objectivity https://t.co/9zIVk59xl3
