Accuracy in Media

Compare the following headlines and think whether this is a fair portrayal of Colin Powell’s leaked e-mails, which blasted both Trump and Clinton:

  • New York Times: “Colin Powell, in Hacked Email, Calls Trump a ‘Disgrace”
  • ABC News: “Colin Powell is not a fan of either candidate, hacked emails show”
  • CBS News: “The emails in which Colin Powell slams Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump”
  • NBC News takes the cake and mentions Benghazi: “Colin Powell calls Trump a ‘national disgrace’ in hacked emails, labels Benghazi probe ‘witch hunt'”
