Accuracy in Media

Quoting Bill Clinton’s Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who is not a neutral source of information, in an analysis of President Donald Trump’s foreign policy does not seem impartial or neutral. Albright was a Hillary Clinton supporter and criticized women who didn’t plan on voting for Clinton at a campaign rally.

The analysis also quoted two scholars (Ian Bremmer and Barnett Rubin) and three political leaders (Germany’s Merkel, France’s Hollande, EU’s Donald Tusk) who criticized Donald Trump and the only quoted Trump ally is one of Trump’s aides, Steve Bannon. That doesn’t seem like a fair analysis, does it?

Here’s what Albright had to say in the NBC News analysis:

‘I am worried,” former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who served under President Bill Clinton, told NBC News. “I think there’s a lack of understanding of how the international system works and America’s role in it. It can’t operate on the basis of chaos.”

“America is great, but it’s great because of the partners we have and how we operate how we understand what our responsibilities are,” Albright said. She added that Trump’s comments “deprecating the role of institutions” concerned her most during the campaign.
