Patriots Slam New York Times For Deceitful Anti-Trump White House Photo

By 04.19.17

The New York Times attempted to sour President Donald Trump’s White House ceremony with the Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots. The New York Times Sports twitter account got political with the following tweet comparing the attendance of Wednesday’s Patriots ceremony with President Trump against the New England celebration back in 2015 with President Barack Obama.

Several news organizations including CNN reported on the photo and the tweet was retweeted over 36,000 times and had more than 50,000 likes.

One problem.

The photo from 2015 included the entire Patriots entourage including all of the staff. The official twitter account of the Patriots corrected the misleading comparison.

All of the Patriots’ football and administrative staff were seated on the South Lawn this year and not shown in the photo that the New York Times used to contrast the attendance.

The Patriots released a photo that included their staff and it looked much similar to the 2015 White House photo.
