Media Bias at the G7

I read an article by Reuters “journalist” (Jeff Mason) this morning that clearly shows how a  writer purposefully writes the story to reflect poorly on President Trump.

He makes a headline of “Trump, on climate, says he won’t jeopardize U.S. wealth on ‘dreams’“..  He starts out a lot of negative comments about the US pulling out of the Paris Accord etc..

Then he  buries the following several paragraphs down:

The Republican president skipped a session on climate change and biodiversity at the summit, instead holding bilateral meetings with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

And then followed with:

Macron even said: “He wasn’t in the room, but his team was”.

One might think the writer doesn’t understand how a world leader operates, about thing like delegation of tasks, etc.  He mentions the meeting with Merkel and Modi but doesn’t point out that they too are not in the all important “climate change” summit.

The piece isn’t even worthy of being a story but some are so desperate to spin anything into an opportunity to make the US President look bad. Journalism today is in a sad, sad state..
