The list of media outlets deliberately avoiding full context to headlines and tweets about President Trump’s comments about Robert E. Lee at a rally last night keeps growing. The latest outlet bent on validating Trump’s claims of media dishonesty is the Washington Post:
Trump calls on blacks to "honor" him with votes, then praises Confederate general Robert E. Lee https://t.co/x8z4h0OWlN

Listen to what Trump actually said, and then realize that the Washington Post thinks you’re stupid.
Democracy dies in partisan journalism.

This headline is appalling. Not only is it unfair and in bad-faith, it completely misrepresents what was said. Gotcha journalism at its worst. https://t.co/If9V7fAZUU

He complimented Lee as a tactician and strategist against whom Grant succeeded admirably but you know that and intend to mislead. https://t.co/KIqKqeI0Vd

I expect better from the Washington Post.
Wait. No I don't.

I can’t imagine why people think the media is full of narrative driven activists. It’s a real mystery.

Another day, another example of MSM super-bias.
Sorry, but after watching this video I'm just not seeing what everyone else is seeing in this story. https://t.co/DQNAzys8qR

That’s because how the media’s framing it isn’t there.
How many retweets and likes are you waiting for before posting the correction reply tweet that 1/10 of the people will see?
