New York Times Admits Error After Wednesday’s Trolling

The New York media tends to jump all over any opportunity they get to troll Boston teams, and one attempt on Wednesday went horribly wrong.

The New York Times fell victim, posting a comparative photo of New England’s visit from 2015 vs the one that occurred Wednesday afternoon, which on the surface looked like a smaller turnout.

However, the Patriots’ official twitter account quickly caught wind of the post and pointed out one key fact that gave better context to the photograph.

That eventually lead to some serious back-peddling by the newspaper, with the editor at least doing the right thing and owning the mistake on Thursday.

Tom Brady was among the notable names missing from the event, citing a “personal family matter”, while Danny Amendola also missed the outing while attending a funeral.

Overall, 34 of the team’s Super Bowl Champions were on hand Wednesday to meet the president, with the Boston Herald posting the full list of players who were there including Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman, Stephen Gostkowski, Malcolm Mitchell and Jimmy Garoppolo among them.

The team posted additional photos, which shed better light on the situation.

And of course, President Trump also weighed in:

So there you go.
