How the Media Twists What People Say

I'd have to agree that the link below is a pretty clear example of a "news" site manipulating someone's words to create controversy that didn't exist in the first place.

The victim of the spin doctoring this time around: Will Smith.

The article quotes Smith as he talks about how he tries to see the best in every person. Even the most evil of people might not intend to be truly evil:
"Even Hitler didn't wake up going, 'Let me do the most evil thing I can do today'.

"I think he woke up in the morning and using a twisted, backwards logic, he set out to do what he thought was 'good'. Stuff like that just needs reprogramming."

All-in-all, its a fairly innocuous comment.

Yet how does the news decide to spin this?

WR Hurst would be so proud.
