A STORY OF FOUR NEWS TALES

 

“WHAT IS TRUTH” (Pontius Pilate)

“It’s life’s illusions I recall, I’ve looked at news from four sides now, and I Really don’t know truth, at all.” (Jonimitchell.com, 2017)

Below are the links to four similar news stories, from four separate media sources. I believe it will be quite revealing and entertaining how they each report on basically the same events differently. The approximate matching of four stories from each publication was on the web pages of each August 16, 2017.

BBC AMERICA

BBC News  Charlottesville: What made Trump remarks so offensive?

CNN  NEWS

CNN    Cupp:  Wow, does Trump have an awful opinion of his own voters


NY TIMES

NYT LOGO

NY Times   Unlike His Predecessors, Trump Steps Back From a Moral Judgment


There lies the four tales. As they say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover, you can’t judge a news story by it’s headline. I think you’ll enjoy this little exercise.

One Free Press has only been publishing for less than a week. We would like to hear your opinion of the four different news stories above or this story in your opinion.
