The example is not fake, you are just not pleased with the editorial selection. The protests the day after the inauguration was far larger than the crowds the day before, and global in scale. That was completely unexpected and unprecedented. Certainly more newsworthy for a local population, than the nationally covered and fairly typical inauguration. Local papers do not have the resources to cover everything and I do prefer them to cover extraordinary events.
What is "fake" here is the outrage.
