This is what Donald Trump means when he talks about media bias.
A headline from the Associated Press on Monday derided the inauguration of Trump on Friday highlighting the fact that, as with any inauguration, the event is going to cause traffic to be clogged in D.C.

It is factually accurate and a legitimate story, but when compared to the headline for the inauguration of President Obama many social media users found the bias to be blatant.

@AP @jessicagresko “clog the nation’s capitol”? This is why people hate the media so much. What do you accomplish using that language?
