World Media or The People?”The photo said it all”

The Australian media header that follows about President Trump and the men supporting anti-abortion resembles Huffington Post’s Amanda Terkel‘s similar online header about men supporting the president’s anti-abortion law”Donald Trump Signs Anti-Abortion Executive Order Surrounded By Men“, suggests that U.S. and Australian media, not just U.S. and British media have similar anti President Trump goals. The headers also confirm that whenever we see an image of a politician we ought to carefully examine the faces surrounding them to determine who media want readers to think support a politician’s action. This ambiguity between politicians’ goals and media goals is ever present since we rarely comprehend a political persona without filtration by media reports and photographic imagery.

The photo of Trump, surrounded by eight male staffers, shows him reinstating a “global gag order”, first introduced by Ronald Reagan in 1984.

The order blocks United States funding to foreign organisations that perform or provide advice on abortions.
