New York Times Executive Editor Outlines Plans to Shift Trump Coverage from Russia to Race

The Russia Collusion Hoax didn’t work to get rid of Trump; now they will use the Race Hoax to try to do it.

The New York Times plans to shift its coverage of President Trump from whether he colluded with Russia to race, the paper’s executive editor Dean Baquet said during a recent staff meeting, according to a transcript of the meeting posted by Slate.com.

“And I mean race in terms of not only African Americans and their relationship with Donald Trump, but Latinos and immigration,” he said, according to the transcript of the meeting, which reportedly took place on Monday.

Baquet said the paper now has to “regroup” and shift its resources and emphasis from the Russia story to the race story.

“We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well. Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story. I’d love your help with that,” he said.
“In the coming weeks, we’ll be assigning some new people to politics who can offer different ways of looking at the world. We’ll also ask reporters to write more deeply about the country, race, and other divisions. I really want your help in navigating this story,” he said.

Baquet described in the decision to shift from the Russia story — which he called “Chapter 1 of the story of Donald Trump” — to race and how the paper was caught a “bit a little tiny flat-footed” after former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony. Read the rest HERE.

    God forbid that that the NYT should shift their coverage to actual news that’s important to ALL Americans and not just Trump smears important only to Democrats!

    If it wasn’t for the financial backing of Mexican, billionaire-crook Carlos Slim the NY Slimes would have slid down the drain several years ago. Now it will take an extra decade or two.
