On Friday, President Trump took issue with a New York Times report about his administration’s plans for dealing with Iran, and it contained a general slam on the mainstream media using a word with the initials “B” and “S.” Reuters decided that should be accompanied by a warning:

We’re guessing that “GRAPHIC LANGUAGE WARNING” was more intended for the mainstream media:
