Original Politico headline – Donald Trump owes tens of millions to the Bank of China – and the loan is due soon
Current Politico headline – Trump owed tens of millions to Bank of China
Can you spot the difference?
The updated information shows that BOC had nothing to do with the loan since 2012. Or 8 years ago.
The Daily Mail, which is to mindless clickbait what Houdini was to magic, turned this into, “Donald Trump’s business empire owes $211 billion to state controlled Bank of China.”
I’m sure Raw Story or Slate has turned it into $400 trillion.
Why don’t people trust the media again? Because the differences between clickbait trash sites and the media are a thin line at best.
