Almost Neutral

(a HuffPost Review)


Donald Trump meets with the President of Mexico, Enrique Pena Nieto in Mexico City in a surprise visit. Pena Nieto began the conversation in insisting he would not pay for the wall between the United States and Mexico as proposed by Trump. They discussed the wall but Trump wouldn’t comment on the payment. Many Mexicans were furious about the visit.


I found this under the politics tab of Facebook and was interested that Huffington Post wrote about this as I didn’t see it on CNN, MSNBC, or FOX. Under “Donald Trump” it was HuffPost who had the most traffic. I enjoyed that they took the time to write about Mexico whereas usually the discussion of our relationship is one sided. The editor’s note was still very opinionated despite the article.


I expected the neutrality of this article to bring a more interesting debate within the comments of the Facebook section but mostly it was commentary that coincided with the editor’s note save a few comments here and there in favor of Mexico. I thought the emphasis was Mexico’s outlook and it seemed the dialogue was towards Trump.
