Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

The Washington Post's first edition headline covering President Donald Trump's State of the Union address didn't go over well on social media. The paper tweeted roughly one hour before Trump's speech a picture of the Wednesday edition, featuring a frontpage headline on its First Edition that read, "A call for bipartisanship."

Readers responded with vitriol, calling out the newspaper for printing a headline it "will regret tomorrow," along with a host of other negative comments on Twitter.

After the Liberal melt down on Twitter late Tuesday night, a little over an hour later, the Post changed the front page of the next morning's edition of the newspaper -- without the headline that triggered so many. The new headline reads: "A ‘new American movement.'"

In an effort to save face in light of the onslaught of outrage from the Left, the Washington Post said it made changes to the front page layout of its already released First Edition following President Trump's State of the Union address merely because editors had decided a new one better reflected the speech, and not because of complaints from the left.

It's just pathetic that the conservatives just can never seem to influence their printed media headlines like them all powerful liberals can.

Our pens are so mighty mighty!

Conservatives have such low energy meltdowns! So Weak! So sad!

The pathetic thing is RoC actually thinking that was a call for bipartisanship.

It would be easier to kill all republicans than convince them to strive for bipartisanship.
