THE LIEThe pic below is a screenshot I took from a Daily Mail article. The pic is CNN’s; the caption is Daily Mail‘s.

To lie is to deceive, and there are many ways to deceive and to lie.
Even if we assume that the CNN pic is real, taken at the inauguration, it is a misleading and dissembling type of lie, the purpose of which is to get someone to believe in an untruth. The perspective from which the CNN photo was taken minimizes the crowd. In this age of super-clear digital photography, it is curious that the CNN pic is so blurry that the people look like clumps of autumn leaves.
In contrast, the screenshot I took from C-SPAN’s live feed of the inauguration is from the perspective of the Capitol building. It also clearly shows the people in attendance, instead of depicting them as indecipherable clumps.
The CNN pic therefore is a misleading/dissembling lie, to lead us to think that, in the words of Daily Mail‘s caption, “The National Mall was noticeably sparse with people during Trump’s inauguration,” which it most definitely was not.
CNN has a disturbing and proven record of biased partisanship and fake news. See:
