It's Not About Crowd Size!
It's about media HONESTY! in his very first press conference (at least, that's what he called it), the new press secretary spent a long time giving them hell about their coverage of the inauguration, as well as the entire campaign. The media seized upon his criticism of their underestimating the crowd size, saying it was a "petty point." But it's not about that. It's about media HONESTY. And that is NOT what the media has displayed in many ways, before, and since, Trump was inaugurated. One of their phony stories was the one that pretended Trump removed the Martin Luther King bust from the White House without checking, after a reporter thought it was, when someone stood in front of it. That's an example of the "fact checking" in this media, to run with a story based on nothing more than that, because it made Trump look bad. (Yahoo)
