Why did the New York Times tweet this comparison of the New England Patriots’s superbowl visit to the White House in 2015 (with President Obama) and 2017 (with President Trump)? To show how many fewer people there were in 2017, of course.
the reason there were so many fewer in the 2017 picture was that, according to the Patriots:
These photos lack context. Facts: In 2015, over 40 football staff were on the stairs. In 2017, they were seated on the South Lawn.
The Patriots then put out the picture which included those additional people:
A little different, wouldn’t you say?
The Times has since apologized for the original picture. As if anyone would believe it is truly apologetic.
Anyone still remember when The Times was a credible newspaper?
