The NY Times is being criticized for bias for treating two obviously faked images quite differently.
Earlier today, President Trump tweeted an obviously poorly photoshopped fake joke meme of himself giving a medal of honor to the hero dog who helped take down Baghdadi.

While nearly everyone on social media got instantly that it was a joke, the NY Times felt it was necessary to actually write an article about this with the headline “Trump Tweets Faked Photo of Hero Dog Getting Medal.”
Ironically, just a few days earlier, Hillary Clinton had posted a completely “faked letter” from Trump that was also a joke.

As Peter Hasson pointed out, the NY Times treatment could not have been more different.
In this case, they also did an article but instead of calling her out for a “faked letter,” the NY Times called her a “Master Troll.”
I truly long for the cycle when the @nytimes stops writing these takes. Maybe 2032. “The two-time Democratic presidential candidate continues to loom large in the psyche of her party — both as heroine and villain.” https://t.co/0lnILZ6vb4

If you know anyone who argues the NY Times is unbiased, be sure to show them this.
