Gerren Keith Gaynor of Fox News reports that, “New York Times headline of Trump’s remarks on mass shootings ignites backlash.”
“A New York Times headline about President Trump’s remarks on the recent mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton drew condemnation online– including some Democratic presidential candidates– and was subsequently changed late Monday.”
They changed their headline?
Wow! That never happens. That headline must have been pretty vile or grossly inaccurate.
What exactly was the headline?
“The newspaper summarized Trump’s comments, in which he denounced hate and white supremacy, with the headline “Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism” on the front page of its first edition.”
That was the headline they were forced to change?
That headline was completely accurate and unbiased. That was exactly what occurred. President Trump urged for unity against racism, denouncing hate and white supremacy groups.
And therein lies the problem.
How can the democrats’ fairy tale narrative of The President being a racist be true if he is reported as being against racism and denouncing hate and white supremacy groups?
C’mon New York Times!
Get with the program!
Did you forget you’re a propaganda rag that works in concert with the democrats?!
It seems that in a moment of weakness you actually reported “the news” there.
Shame on you!
“A photograph of Tuesday’s first edition was tweeted out by journalist Nate Silver Monday night and was quickly slammed by critics who accused The Gray Lady of inaccurately representing Trump’s comments.”
“The Gray Lady?”
More like “Gray Lady Down!”
“Some Twitter users threatened to cancel their subscriptions and urged others to do the same.”
Did you know that “some twitter users” can be found to be doing virtually anything?
Anyway…, I digress.
‘“I canceled my subscription,’ tweeted author and CNN contributor Joan Walsh, adding, ‘I can’t keep rewarding such awful news judgement.’”
Let’s get one thing clear…, Joan Walsh is a liar. She didn’t cancel anything. And by “awful news judgment” she means diverting from the “fake news,” liberal narrative. She is associated with CNN after all.
“Prominent Democrats in Washington also took aim at the Times, including New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.”
‘“Let this front page serve as a reminder of how white supremacy is aided by – and often relies upon – the cowardice of mainstream institutions,’ the freshman congresswoman tweeted.”
Please explain to me how “white supremacy is aided” by reporting that The President is calling for unity against racism and white supremacy groups?
These democrats are sooo confused and sooo disingenuous that it is almost beyond commenting on.
“Presidential candidates, many of whom blamed Trump’s rhetoric for the El Paso, Texas, shooting that left at least 22 dead, also decried the headline.”
“New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand tweeted, ‘That’s not what happened.’”
No, Kirsten…, that IS exactly what happened.
‘“Lives literally depend on you doing better, NYT. Please do,’ wrote Sen. Cory Booker.”
Thank you for your take on the matter “Spartacus!”
I believe we all can “do better…,” including you Cory.
“A photograph of the Times’ second edition of the front page hours later revealed that the headline had been changed to ‘Assailing Hate but Not Guns.’ Its website also showed a similar headline: ‘Trump Condemns Bigotry but Doesn’t Call for Major New Guns Laws.’”
I’m surprised these new headlines were even deemed acceptable.
There is a negative twist to them now, but there is still a bit of positivity there about The President.
“Times spokeswoman Eileen Murphy acknowledged in a statement the original headline was problematic.”
The headline was “problematic,” but it wasn’t inaccurate, huh?
‘“The original headline was flawed and was changed for all editions of the paper following the first edition,’ the statement read. ‘The headline in question never appeared online, only in the first print edition.’”
The headline was “problematic” and “flawed,” but it wasn’t inaccurate?
Gee…, that reaction to the original headline would seem to be a metaphor for the democrats and their co-conspirators, the mainstream media!
“Problematic” and “flawed.”
