Compare & Contrast Inauguration Analysis #Hive55

Friday, January 20th, 2017 was the Inauguration of the 46th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. There were many kinds of opinions from many kinds of people expressed in many kinds of ways. This includes the website coverage from Fox News, CNN and NBC News.

Starting with an interesting point from NBC News, who noted speculators’ questioning of the POTUS’s Twitter profile background image, which they are claiming to be from former President Barack Obama’s 2009 Inauguration.

But overall, NBC’s coverage on their website appeared more concise and less opinionated than Fox News and CNN since it was a storyline. The latter, in typical fashion, strongly voiced their opinion.

Fox News had Douglas E. Schoen, who was a pollster for President Bill Clinton. In Schoen’s article, he describes the President’s vision as “populist” and notes similar rhetoric themes that the President used in his campaign trail. (This is also the case for many other news organizations.)

Schoen notes at the end of his article how “many analysts will continue to criticize the president.” And indeed, they did.

CNN presented their thoughts with six short articles by CNN contributors and analysists. All of these writers noted their analysises bitterly.

Meanwhile, other news organizations mirrored the same attitudes as the CNN opinion writers.

And Twitter users reported the Inauguration in the same bitter fashion, both online and in person.

The talk of the Inauguration attendance was booming…

…and webpage deletings were on the minds of many too.

And of course, the Wall will not be forgotten either.

But overall, there’s still uncertainy of what the new President of the United States will do during his time in office.
