Then the New England Patriots’ spokesperson burned the NYT's by saying that what they said was misleading because many of the players weren't included in the photo because they were on the White House lawn not on the steps where the picture was taken. He said that 36 players attended with Obama and 34 with Trump but that was due to unforeseen circumstances like Tom Brady having an illness in his family so he couldn't attend. They didn't have to correct the NYT's but felt compelled to do so which is a message in and of itself.
The only reason I keep up with what the NYT's is writing is for entertainment purposes and so I can exploit them in my posts but if you are a subscriber so that you can stay informed regarding political issues you might want to consider cancelling your subscription and subscribe to the National Enquire. You still won't get the truth, but it will cost you less money.
