It should not really come as a surprise that the media creates a narrative. After all, The Simpsons addressed this already almost two decades ago in the Episode "Homer: Badman".
So colour me not surprised when it turns out that the media is still at it. As evident by this video. First you'll see the finished report, then you can listen to the full interview.
Nicely done KOMO, glad you did a "fair" report.
