The New England Patriots thankfully corrected an outrageous, politically charged tweet by New York Times Sports which heavily implied that the New England Patriots rebuffed the White House, where they were honored for being the Super Bowl champions this week.
The fake photo continues to be posted all over Twitter.
Not to be outdone, the highly partisan Eleanor Mueller of CNN Politics picked up the “news story” with the headline “The Patriots go to Washington — some of them, at least.”
Both the New York Times & CNN updated their stories to reflect the Patriots tweet, but they both heavily downplayed the fact that they were caught in a politically-charged lie.

how many patriots players showed up last year? how many patriots players showed up this year? where was danny amendola when trump was praising him? was he in fact there? was tom brady there? asking because i saw a meme on facebook yesterday and just want to see if it was truthful.
edit to add just read that the patriots tweeted 34 players were there this year as opposed to 50 players for obama, total number of patriots staff was roughly the same though. what i gather from this is more players did indeed boycott trump as opposed to obama, but more "staff"(not players) showed up for trump than showed up for obama..imagine that.
if true that brady didn't show up, i wonder why, wasn't he a vocal trump supporter? well good for him for dissing obama and trump
