NY Times Changes Front Page Headline From “Trump Urges Unity Vs. Racism” After Democrat Presidential Candidates Complain

The New York Times changed the front page headline for Tuesday’s edition from “TRUMP URGES UNITY VS. RACISM” to “ASSAILING HATE BUT NOT GUNS” following attacks by several Democratic Party presidential candidates seeking to dethrone Trump.

Democrats felt the original headline about the President’s speech Monday about the weekend mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton was too fair to Trump.

So the NY Times changed the headline.

 

And here is their updated headline.

Democrat presidential candidate and former El Paso Congressman Robert “Beto” O’Rourke commented, “Unbelievable”. O’Rourke had earlier laced into reporters in a profane tirade about the coverage of Trump.

Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (NJ) wrote, “Lives literally depend on you doing better, NYT. Please do.”

Democrat presidential candidate and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, “Hey, @nytimes — what happened to “The Truth Is Worth It?” Not the truth. Not worth it.”


UPDATE ADDED Gillibrand: Democrat Presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), “That’s not what happened.”

New York City communist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), leader of The Squad, commented, “Let this front page serve as a reminder of how white supremacy is aided by – and often relies upon – the cowardice of mainstream institutions.”

Veteran leftist media figure Joan Walsh cancelled her subscription, “I canceled my subscription. I know a lot of folks will tell me I’m wrong. I will miss it. But I can’t keep rewarding such awful news judgment. “Trump Urges Unity Against Racism” is almost as bad as their full-page Comey letter coverage just before 2016 election. Nobody learns.”

New York Times print editor Tom Jolly posted the bulldog and second edition of the front page without comment on the changed headline.

“Tomorrow’s @nytimes tonight: @realDonaldTrump urges unity vs. racism and condemns “slaughters,” but says little about gun control; China employs currency in trade feud, jolting markets. #nytimes”

“Tomorrow’s @nytimes tonight, second edition: @realDonaldTrump assails hate but not guns; China employs currency in trade feud, jolting markets. #nytimes”
