How did the mainstream media cover the Singapore Summit?
Typical MSM sites downplayed the successes – pointing to omissions (like human rights abuses) and adding “it’s too early to declare victory.” But other media sources are making this out to be a big win for the White House… since no other president got the North to the table. They also praise Trump for a deal for the remains of POWs and MIAs.
MSM coverage seemed to focus on denuclearization and Kim’s untrustworthiness. Fox seemed more focused on the recovery and return of POW/MIA remains. MSM seems to be taking a “let’s not declare victory yet” pose; conservative media sees it as a big win.
Is MSM looking too hard for a Trump failure? Is conservative media looking too hard for Trump credit? Maybe it’s simply too early to judge…
