When the villain is Obama, not Trump, news suddenly becomes not worth reporting

Politicians and the press rarely look for the truth, the WHOLE truth and nothing but the truth anymore. Here are stories which will be remembered (incorrectly) for a long time.

#1 When the villain is Obama, not Trump, news suddenly becomes not worth reporting

From a West Wing Reads email
“So the United States has ‘the world’s highest rate of children in detention.’ Is this worth reporting? Maybe, maybe not. Nevertheless, Agence France-Presse, or AFP, and Reuters did report it, attributing the information to a ‘United Nations study’ on migrant children detained at the US-Mexico border,” Kyle Smith writes for the New York Post.

“Then the two agencies retracted the story.” Why? “Sheepishly, the two news organizations explained that, you see, the UN data was from 2015.”

Why does that matter? “We all know who the president was in 2015,” Smith writes. Think about that: “The story was removed. Not updated or corrected, removed.”

How else does the media manipulate the news to their liking? Smith exposes all the tricks.
