'This Is Crazy': News Outlets Indirectly Paid Melania Trump Up to $1 Million for Images Under Contract That Demanded 'Positive' Coverage

Julia Conley, staff writer

President Donald Trump told the public that his wife Melania's controversial jacket proclaiming, "I really don't care" was directed at the media. But reports on Monday suggested the First Lady cares a great deal about news coverage of her—enough to sign a deal with a photo agency that guaranteed certain photos of her could be used only in positive news stories.

Well, isn’t the US MSM nothing more than a propaganda machine run by ad-men and women?

$1Million?

Anybody paying more than $2 for a picture of anyone from this family is “Nuckin Futs.”

You’re walking right into the convenient “fake news” trap that is allowing people to call anything they don’t like fake.
As a matter of fact the media in the US, for all their faults, provide a massively important service of informing us.
Where’d you get your information from otherwise? Some wanker on Facebook? Alex Jones?
There’s a new study out that shows that lack of news reporting in cities and towns serves as an open invitation to corruption. If no reporters cover city hall then no-one ever learns about dubious contracts, self dealing officials or corporate takeovers. And as corruption takes its toll banks take notice and the interest rates for city projects go up making everything more expensive for tax payers.
Stop mindless media bashing. And remember the slain reporters from last week.

This is where EVERY picture of her with a story is the picture of that disgusting jacket – see how ballistic they both get when that’s the ONLY picture posted with ANY story about mr. & mrs. Prictator!

On the other hand----I wonder if this money is her escape money.
She probably signed on the dotted line not to take any of the Trump’s money.
That would all go to his kids—so hopefully Barron is safe-------
Oh wait------- how much has she made so far?More than $400,000? That would be nice if she made more than the $400,000 for president of the Donald.
