Liberal Media Focused on about 200 ‘Alt-Right’ Attendees to Push Anti-Trump Narrative

Painting conservatives and the Right with a broad brush is a calling card of the Left and liberal media. This time, the liberal media insinuated that a meeting of about two-hundred ‘alt-right’ attendees [1] at a conference in Washington, D.C. were representative of millions of Donald Trump’s supporters.

Here are the headlines about the conference:

The Atlantic [1]: “‘Hail Trump!’: White nationalists salute the president elect”

CNN [2]: “Alt-right leader: ‘Hail Trump! Hail our people! Hail victory!'”

Los Angeles Times [3]: “Neo-Nazi ‘alt-right’ crowd cheers the president-election with ‘Hail Trump'”

New York Times [4]: “Alt-right exults in Donald Trump’s election with a salute: ‘Heil Victory'”

The liberal media then pounced on Trump, in an interview, denouncing the alt-right, as if he openly endorsed it and its tenets.
