Examiner Takes Obama Out of Context
Topic: Washington Examiner

An April 5 Washington Examiner editorial states:

President Barack Obama is getting generally positive reviews from the purveyors of conventional wisdom for his performance at the London G-20 summit and in France during a joint appearance with French President Nicolas Sarkozy. An admiring news story in The New York Times, for instance, all but hailed Obama for setting “a new tone for the alliance with Europe.” Unfortunately, the new tone consists mainly of Obama apologizing for those times “when America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive” toward its European allies.

But the Examiner plucked Obama's statement out of context, failing to mention that Obama also stated that immediately after the part of the speech it noted, Obama said: "But in Europe, there is an anti-Americanism that is at once casual but can also be insidious. Instead of recognizing the good that America so often does in the world, there have been times where Europeans choose to blame America for much of what's bad."
