make somebody look good/bad

Hi all,

I'm wondering how to say "make X look good/bad" as in "Fox news makes Trump look good" or a Taiwanese example: "中天 makes 韓國瑜 look good." For instance, certain news channels make certain politicians look bad, e.g. they show them losing a debate. On the other hand, a different news channel will make the same politician look really good by showing a different excerpt of the same debate.

Is there an equivalent phrase in Chinese? Or would I have to specify the situation?

Here is my attempt:
一般看中天新聞的人對韓國瑜的印象都不錯,因為中天都只會給觀眾看他好的一面?

Thanks in advance!

    make sb. look good 让某人看起来很好,给某人竖立了良好的形象(口碑),美化、夸大某人形象
    make sb. look bad 让某人显得难堪,给某人竖立了不好的形象,丑化、贬低某人形象

    ps,您说的给观众看好的一面,我觉得也不错~

    中天電視臺立場之偏頗,明眼人皆知:其對國民黨的美化,及以韓國瑜為核心進行的瘋狂造神運動,恐怕只有那些「喜韓兒」或「韓粉」沒看清楚。
