Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 30Dec 16,Donald Trump behaviour
Some of the social media stories brought more sensationalism in the political sphere. The Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte’s drug war, Brexit and Indian demonetisation. But I liked the humourous coverage on the US elections campaign between Trump and Hilary Clinton. Both were accusing each other and Trump’s funniest behaviour in the campaigns made me laugh. The media also never anticipated the results in favour of Trump. Overall, 2016 was a sensationalism kind of year for stories covered by social media.
