Tear gas used once a month at border under Obama
Any Democratic president will get every break possible from the old media, and that was especially the case with Barack Obama who literally got away with - we won't say it. (He droned an American citizen without due process, something that is SUPPOSED to be against the law. The target's young son was in the car when it was hit. He also died.) Any Republican president will catch hell for anything he or she does, and that is especially the case with Mr. Trump. That is the way of the world. It's not fair. It stinks. But that is the way it is.
Most of the media is corporate Left to far Left. They'll always spin things their way. It's one of the reasons why the old media so despises new media, which can challenge spin and point out hypocrisy in the old media.

“It’s horrifying to see tear gas used on mothers and young children as they seek refuge in the United States. That’s not what America should be,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat.
Other Democrats complained about threats of “deadly force” against the border incursions, which saw migrants punch through fencing, and launch rocks and bottles at agents who responded to stem the intrusion.
Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, took umbrage at the outrage, questioning where the critics were when tear gas was deployed under Mr. Obama.
“This policy that we use was an Obama-written policy and it was used in 2013 at the same port of entry,” he told CNN, wondering in particular about the intense media interest now versus then.
Look, non-Democrats (even those on the Left) will never get a fair break from the corporate Left media. It's just not going to happen. But being aware of what is going on is powerful. Challenging the official narrative coming out of the old media is powerful.
