A news story with a photo appearing to contradict the narrative of its headline is further evidence that the profession of journalism is dead, Actor James Woods opined Thursday on Twitter.

Woods posted an Associated Press article titled, “Little evidence protests fueled increase of coronavirus cases in U.S., public health experts say” – featuring a lead photo of a massive crowd of protesters crammed together, shoulder-to-shoulder, at the White House in defiance of coronavirus “social distancing” rules.

The article argues that, because protesters made the general public afraid to go outside, the protests may have actually caused “a net increase in social distancing,” thus, decreasing total coronavirus exposure:

“In many cities, the protests actually seemed to lead to a net increase in social distancing, as more people who did not protest decided to stay off the streets, said that study’s lead author, Dhaval Dave of Bentley University.”
