Washington Post Reporter Makes Misleading Trump Tweets



Washington Post reporter Philip Rucker mislead his Twitter followers by tweeting out a quote by Donald Trump out of context, a classic media tactic used to spin a story. The quote insinuated that Trump was calling immigrants poison, but Trump was referring to the drug trafficking coming from Mexico.


When other Twitter users called him out for being misleading, rather than deleting his previous tweet, he added context in another tweet.


T. Becket Adams, reporter for the Washington Examiner criticized Rucker for this and showed him how to make a proper tweet with context to the quote.
