Reuters Forced to Delete This Pro-Antifa Tweet After Social Media Backlash
Reuters news service was so excoriated on social media Wednesday over a sanitized description of anti-Trump protesters that they had to delete the offending tweet over it.
Critics of the news service posted screenshots of the deleted tweet.
The photo depicted the violent protests outside President Trump’s rally in Phoenix. Police reported that they were hit with bottles and other projectiles. Eventually they began launching tear gas canisters to help disperse the violent crowd.
But when Reuters entitled their photo about the event, they described them as “peaceful protesters.”
