Trump Slams NYT After Leaker Reveals Pivot From ‘Russiagate’ To ‘Racism Witch Hunt’


President Trump slammed the “failing New York Times” on Sunday after leaked comments from executive editor Dean Baquet revealed that the paper is pivoting from the Russia narrative (which he described as being “a little tiny bit flat-footed”) to ‘Trump is a racist.’

“The failing New York Times, in one of the most devastating portrayals of bad journalism in history, got caught by a leaker that they are shifting from the Phony Russian Collusion Narrative (the Mueller Report & his testimony were a total disaster), to a Racism Witch Hunt,” Trump wrote on Twitter, adding “‘Journalism’ has reached a new low in the history of our Country. It is nothing more than an evil propaganda machine for the Democrat Party. The reporting is so false, biased and evil that it has now become a very sick joke…But the public is aware! The reporting is so false, biased and evil that it has now become a very sick joke…But the public is aware!”


Trump has been dinging the Times all weekend over Baquet Monday comments, which were covertly recorded and sent to Slate.

Talking about the pivot, Baquet said “I think that the story changed. A lot of the stuff we’re talking about started to emerge like six or seven weeks ago.

“How do we cover America, that’s become so divided by Donald Trump? How do we grapple with all the stuff you all are talking about? How do we write about race in a thoughtful way, something we haven’t done in a large way in a long time?” he continued.

Conservatives latched on to Baquet’s comments, suggesting the Times was deliberately trying to cast Trump as a racist in a pre-ordained storyline now that the Russia investigation was wrapped up.

“The takeaway? The NYT says it is mapping out a narrative in advance of any naturally-occurring, true news events, and plans to shape all natural-occurring, true news events so that they are reported in the context of racism. This is what they believe their readers want,” tweeted “Full Measure” host Sharyl Attkisson, whose program runs on the conservative Sinclair television stations.

Meanwhile, the Washington Examiner‘s Byron York wonders if the public should “still view the Times as a news outlet? Or as something else?”

  1. Demonrats are real the ‘Russian agents’. Hillary, Bill & the rest actually Chinese agents. Can you spell espionage? How ’bout traitor or TREASON? THAT IS the LEFTIST-ANTIFA-DEMOCRAT JIG, & the JIG IS UP.

  2. It’s unfortunate {AKA Disastrous] that there have been NO prosecutions, and leftists are STILL able to continue vapid accusations of evidence-less racism, to replace evidence-less collusion, to replace evidence-less treason, to replace evidence-less racism, to replace evidence-less economic disaster by no longer following economic disastrous policies (AKA Kenyan).

  3. ‪Expose, Boycott, Sue, prosecute and bring to justice all these deep state treasonous Godless NAZI commie liberal demoncrats and RINOs post-haste,Patriots! Drain the rat infested swamp President Trump!‬!

  4. NYT—What ever happened to, “PRINT THE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT TRUTH”?? New slogan should be ‘PRINT THE BIG FAT LIE AND NOTHING BUT THE BIG FAT LIE THE CRIMINAL DEMOCRAT PARTY MOB LEADERSHIP GIVES YOU”!!!! Have you become nothing but “criminal Democrat Party Mob News Slaves to the criminal Democrat Party Mob leadership unable to think for yourselves”???? Isn’t that what the Nazi’s did?????? You are the worst examples of “freedom of the press in American History”!!!!!!

  5. It’s unfortunate that all MSM outlets only report lies, mis-directed statements, half-truths, or not report on an event, rally etc regarding Trump and Republican politicians. What makes it so unthinkable is that when they actually report something truthful I have no reason to believe it so deem it a lie. They have ruined their reputation for honest reporting, so I don’t watch the left leaning TV news stations, don’t read articles in their newspapers or on-line. I rather be uninformed that misinformed.

    There will be another 4 years when Trump gets re-elected, so MSM either shape up or go under. Tell your employees to review and update their resumes, they will need new jobs starting 2020.

  6. NYT like the other big tech’s are trying to influence the election and have done so previously…..
