CNN Gets The Scoop On Trump's Selfishness; A New Scandal
This is a “golden age of journalism” wrote New York Times reporter Sopan Deb on Wednesday. And to prove his point the next day the media created a scandal out of a report that President Donald Trump was served two scoops of ice cream with his pie while having dinner with Time magazine reporters, while the reporters were served only one scoop.
This became a scandal. Really. CNN’s Jeanne Moos did a two minute video report on Trump getting two scoops of ice cream. The online version written by Dan Merica was headlined, Trump gets 2 scoops of ice cream, everyone else gets 1 — and other top lines from his Time interview, and has the insulting lede, “President Donald Trump is living every child’s dream: More ice cream.”
