New England Patriots Slam New York Times Over Photo On Twitter

There has been so much debate since the New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl, and it hasn’t been about football. Instead, the debate has been on who will attend or not attend President Donald Trumps event where he invites the team to commemorate their Super Bowl win like every other President has in past.

A good chunk of reporters have reported the lack of representation that the Patriots seemed to have on the Wednesday visit. One newspaper decided to amp up the ante with their clear agenda driven Twitter post.

The paper that decided to go at the attendance was the New York Times who posted two photos on Twitter — one from the 2015 visit, and one from Wednesday.

It’s a big difference, as in 2015 people stretched up and down the stairs, whereas the photo from Wednesday didn’t have that. At first glance, it appears the 2015 visit had a lot more people in attendance, but the photos lack facts.

The Patriots decided to do actual reporting and decided to respond on Wednesday night via Twitter. The official team account responded to the Times’ tweet by writing: These photos lack context. Facts: In 2015, over 40 football staff were on the stairs. In 2017, they were seated on the South Lawn.

Here is the original New York Times tweet, followed by the Patriots’ response.

The New York Times then decided to respond to this tweet, to be frank the Patriots shouldn’t have been the ones telling the facts, that was a job of the reporter at the Times.

So then in response, the Patriots decided to show the comparison of the first time they won two Super Bowls in three years.

Want to know what I say about all of this? Who the hell cares, they won the Super Bowl and that is all that matters, everything else is irrelevant.
