    So the NYT was being dishonest in tweeting the pictures without context? The answer is yes.
    And it didn't take long for CNN and MSNBC to share the same pictures in their news coverage without context. The picture taken in 2015 had 40 some staffers in the picture with the players. This year they were sitting in the audience. But they failed to make that distinction in their reporting
    There were two less Patriots at the WH this past Wed. than a year ago when Obama was President. It is crap like this that feeds the fake news mantra.

If you don't follow him on Twitter, well, then just trust me, it's one of his favorite things to do.
    Trump must've inspired the Patriots because the NFL team also called out the Times following the team's visit to the White House on Wednesday .



    LOOK: Patriots call out 'New York Times' for White House photo tweet: 'Lacks context' - CBSSports.com

    The more this crap happens, the more I distrust the media. Why they continue to do this when they have been called out on it is beyond me. Give it up already and just report factual news,
    A picture is worth a thousand words. Two pictures? Make it two thousand words.

    The delegations were about the same number, but only 34 players showed up for Trump vs. 51 for Obama. But who gives a flying ****?

    You are right when you say that the NYT can't stand Trump, but you miss the real issue, which is why the NYT chooses to do a story on this instead of the real story about Russia sending massive amounts of troops to their border with North Korea, in preparation for a possible WWIII scenario. The story here shouldn't be about fake news, which this is not, but about poorly chosen news, which the NYT is certainly guilty of, due to it's dislike of Trump. This crap from them is fluff, which was chosen instead of real news, and it has now become yet another fake and distracting issue from what really matters. The Gray Lady has become senile, and Trump seems to be carrying her water with his poorly chosen tweet storms, which keep silly controversies like this alive..

    So the liar-in-chief and perhaps the most crooked major sports franchise are calling the media fake - again?

    Seems to me the media is doing it's job!

    Trump called the NYTimes 'enemy of the people'? Among other many, MANY names.

    Gee I wonder why the NY Times doesn't like Trump.

    He's the one who declared war on the media, of course not all the media. Not on the Conservative outlets, those he coddles and even hires some of their people, but he's started a war with the rest of the media. The Trump supporters love when he takes shots at them, but when the media fights back they whine and cry just like their leader. What a bunch of wussies.

    Yup, this. Right on down to the very last line. Trump declared war on the Times, they bit, and now the Trump devotees are pouting and whining about it.
