CNN has framed President Donald Trump’s media conference as “propaganda” and accused the president of rewriting the history of his administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
In a media conference on Tuesday, Trump played a video produced by his administration showing media downplaying the pandemic and providing a timeline of his actions.
“That featured a propaganda-like video,” CNN said.
“He stepped to the podium armed with a video meant to frame his response in a positive light after his initial handling of the crisis has come under increasing scrutiny”.
“The appearance only affirmed the impression that some of Trump’s chief concerns amid the global public health disaster are how his performance is viewed in the media and whether he’s being fairly judged.”
