June 11, 2017 was a hot day for news media. We already know some news sites prefer an agenda over the other. On this post I just want to shine a light on the different ways a topic as hot as an email scandal focused on Donald Trump Jr. got handled.

Donald Trump Jr. published the whole email chain on his twitter account (you can look here and here) so by now, social media users are able to see and read the emails.

The Coverage

New York Times

Starting with the New York Times I believe it is rather focused on the facts. When Donald Trump Jr. got some emails that offered possible information against Clinton, he said ‘I Love it.’

A targeted attack was issued by the news site Breitbart. They focused more on the NYT coverage than on the news.

Vox published the following headers and articles. They give more insights on the issues at hand.

So, who wore it better? Of course the rest of the articles give much more information in almost every case of the scandal. Let me know what you think about this collection of headers and articles. Was there anyway around the news? Was this story twisted? Is there a news site I am missing?
