We talk a lot about media narratives around here. A lot of people do. And frankly, CNN’s Jim Sciutto thinks it’s time to drop the term:
Let’s please ban the word “narrative” from our discussion of the news and this president. There is only one version of the facts and the truth. Full stop.

Of course. Your version.

Since he was polite enough to say “please,” we’ll return the favor and politely say “no thank you.”
Look to your own Network @CNN

Hahahah imagine thinking CNN should have the authority to determine something like this. https://t.co/krsk2f1J5t

Maybe Real Journalists like Jim Sciutto should stop pushing narratives, then.
Sure, but it would be foolish to imagine that news is about “the truth full stop.” There is always narrative construction going on

The why does cnn do it daily? Clean up your own house first Jim

Maybe just leave your narrative out of "reporting".

@cnn can hardly be trusted to tell facts without spin. You cry wolf too many times, it won’t matter if you are right, people are not listening.

You'd love to have complete authority over what is and isn't reality, wouldn't you? Take your narrative building elsewhere, hack.
