So much BACKFIRE! Samantha Power shaming writers for quoting ‘serial liar Trump’ in headlines totally KNEECAPS Obama
Seems Samantha Power is unhappy with the media quoting Trump in their headlines, especially when it comes to his claiming the prosecutors found no evidence of Russian collusion.
This editor hates that this woman’s name is Samantha …
Anyway, we digress.
Look at this mess:
STOP THIS, headline writers.
If you want to quote this president in a headline – in an age when many people read only headlines – you must write, “Trump (a proven, serial liar) says…”
But best not to quote him in a headline. https://t.co/spzVwONHCT

Nag nag nag.
Don’t get us wrong, we’re not exactly fans of the media in general these days but we’re even less of fans of Samantha Power or other members of the Obama administration.
Maybe we should just let them fight it out?
They all lie. I'm still waiting for my old doctor back, my $2500 savings and my old plan, but other than that….

Yeah, we’re waiting for our doctor back and that big ol’ check for $2500 as well.
Obama was also a proven, serial liar. Can you point me toward your tweets where you called for editorializing his quotes? https://t.co/mlS0l5FTey

Heh, wouldn’t count on it.
While, they're reading, recall
Obama (a proven serial liar):
Keep your plan, same cost as a cell phone
I found out about her server in the news, never emailed her
Not a smidgeon of evidence IRS targeted
Get used to the jobs losses, slow growth …

Wow, true story, we had forgotten so many of the lies Obama told while he was president. No wonder people on the Right are still pissed at this guy.
And we should use the same for you.

Hi @brianstelter a politician saying the press shouldn’t directly quote someone. Any thoughts?

Stop telling people what to do.

She’s a Democrat aka an authoritarian which means she can’t help herself.
In the same way you must write, "Power (who threw Israel under the UN bus) says…" https://t.co/Q42Y8r8jza
