Now here's an interesting case. You can question whether it's bias or just click bait, but it's an example of what we see in the news everyday, and it involves both Drudge and CBS, so it's not really a hard left/right situation.

Currently on Drudge is the following headline:

Quote:
Trump calls European Union enemy of USA...
and it links to this CBS article

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/donald-...nki-jeff-glor/

The Bold which is serving as the headline for the article reads

Quote:
"I think the European Union is a foe," Trump says ahead of Putin meeting in Helsinki
What makes this interesting is that what Trump was actually saying was not that the EU is an outright foe, but that the EU is in trade competition with the U.S., but CBS chose to focus on the word "foe" instead of the meat of the statement.

Quote:
In an interview with "CBS Evening News" anchor Jeff Glor in Scotland on Saturday, President Trump named the European Union -- comprising some of America's oldest allies -- when asked to identify his "biggest foe globally right now."

"Well, I think we have a lot of foes. I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. Now, you wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe. Russia is foe in certain respects. China is a foe economically, certainly they are a foe. But that doesn't mean they are bad. It doesn't mean anything. It means that they are competitive," Mr. Trump said at his golf club in Turnberry, Scotland.

Trump on Putin meeting: "I go in with low expectations"

"I respect the leaders of those countries. But, in a trade sense, they've really taken advantage of us and many of those countries are in NATO and they weren't paying their bills," he added.
And the word "enemy" never appears in the article. So, is this CBS just picking up the juicy bits to grab readers, and allowing that to make the title misleading either out of stupidity, laziness or disinterest, or is it a deliberate slanting of the point Trump's making? And, is this Drudge once again taking a shot at Trump, or is this just him looking to maximize clickthroughs?

You mean like this? Lol at the MSM being anything close for Democrats to what right-wing state-run media is for Republicans. You just don't like CNN calling out Trump's non-stop lies.

Ok, now here's a case where the guy is either biased or stupid and lazy. He starts with his first tweet

Quote:

JUST IN: Rod Rosenstein was summoned to the WH today, four days after he indicted 12 Russian Intelligence Officers. He was seen leaving the WH at 11:28AM. Unclear if he met with President Trump, who is still in the residence and hasn't showed up in the West Wing this morning.

— HansNichols (@HansNichols) July 17, 2018
https://twitter.com/HansNichols/stat...rc=twsrc%5Etfw

that puts in information about recent events that is clearly intended to make it seem as if Rosenstein is going to get his ass handed to him. There's just one problem. He apparently didn't bother to do any checking before tweeting. This person, on the other hand, did.

Quote:
I'm told this was a regularly scheduled meeting that the DAG Rod Rosenstein has at the White House…. https://t.co/IV8LZdobTr

— Carrie Johnson (@johnson_carrie)
https://twitter.com/johnson_carrie/s...rc=twsrc%5Etfw

This knowledge coming out forced Nichols, an NBC reporter, to backtrack

Quote:
For clarity: I should have used "spotted," not "summoned." I do not know who called the meeting. https://t.co/lHqpAdDQto

— HansNichols (@HansNichols)
https://twitchy.com/gregp-3534/2018/...-very-similar/

but even there, he doesn't admit his error beyond a small "oops" for word choice, when his initial tweet was clearly intended to be of an ominous nature, and his mea culpa should have been significant, and should have apologized for the obvious inferences that he knowsm, or should know, would have followed from that first tweet.

Meanwhile

Quote:
Per @PressSec: "Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was at the White House today for routine meetings. He did not meet with the President while he was here."

Here's another example, and this "reporter" needs to lose her job. This was so bad that even Mediaite blasted it.

Quote:
Reporter Deletes Tweet Claiming Russian Spy Was in Oval Office with Trump
Quote:
...It is the biggest story in the world. Russia and Trump, meddling or collusion, and the media’s most constant story for almost two years now. Reporting that an arrested Russian operative was in the Oval Office with Trump is not a casual mistake.

It’s a very, very big one. An avoidable one. And it should have been avoided.

MSNBC is all "this is a very precarious time for America with Trump offending our allies."

It's like election night over there right now.

Literally every thing that Trump does is awful to these people and is grounds for impeachment.

It just gets old after awhile.

The leftist media is the boy who cried Trump.
