The NY Times (and the Boston Globe via an article) both posted a picture of the New England Patriots White House ceremony today. They did a side by side comparison against a 2015 photo of the last Patriots visit with Barack Obama.

They pointed out how many Patriots didn’t attend. This was certainly an attempt to demean and mock President Trump similar to the Inauguration photos from January.

But then something funny happened. The Patriots tweeted the following:

Once again the New York Times and the media are caught doing fake news. The NY Times inaccurate tweet has over 30,000 retweets and likes. No way to put the genie back in the bottle.

And that’s the purpose. These media organizations aren’t concerned with the truth, they are concerned with pushing a narrative despite the truth.

Think they’ll offer a retraction or apology?
