President Donald Trump once again took to Twitter Wednesday, this time to blast the New York Times for changing one of its headlines after Democrats complained about it, IJR reported.
“’Trump Urges Unity Vs. Racism,’ was the correct description in the first headline by the Failing New York Times, but it was quickly changed to, ‘Assailing Hate But Not Guns,’ after the Radical Left Democrats went absolutely CRAZY! Fake News – That’s what we’re up against…” Trump tweeted indignantly.
The President also quoted former Bill Clinton adviser Mark Penn for calling the action “an astounding development in journalism” that he had never seen “happen before,” and Tucker Carlson for joking that he “almost got a good headline from the Times” after three years.
The Times apparently changed the headline after prominent Democrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) tweeted that they didn’t think the headline was accurate, along with many other critics.
Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet denied that the change was motivated by complaints and said it was changed “pretty quickly” during the approval process.
