WSJ Sides With Trump; And NYT With Fox?

Two competing headlines – NYT and WSJ – this weekend on the Donald Trump skipping out on the Fox News debate brouhaha.

Only it seems the roles you’d expect are reversed:

The WSJ’s headline read “GOP Debate Draws Fewer Viewers,” lending credibility to the Trump argument that his absence hurt Fox; while the NYT headline read “Even Without You-Know-Who, Debate Still Drew 12.5 Million Viewers,” implying it was  still a big success and thereby crowning Fox News the winner.

Facts are facts, but how they’re presented to the public is another story.
