New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger issued a lengthy statement on Sunday afternoon to newsroom staff, a statement published in a release by the Times and quoted in a longer article by the newspaper on efforts by allies of President Donald Trump to combat the media through exposing racism and antisemitism inside the establishment media, including the Times.

Sulzberger’s quote in an article by reporters Jeremy Peters and Ken Vogel stated specifically that the Times will not be “intimidated or silenced” by allies of Trump who expose embarrassing past comments that staffers at the newspaper have made.

“They are seeking to harass and embarrass anyone affiliated with the leading news organizations that are asking tough questions and bringing uncomfortable truths to light,” Sulzberger said. “The goal of this campaign is clearly to intimidate journalists from doing their job, which includes serving as a check on power and exposing wrongdoing when it occurs. The Times will not be intimidated or silenced.”

Sulzberger’s quote comes in the wake of a Breitbart News investigation into New York Times editor Tom Wright-Piersanti’s racist and antisemitic tweets made years ago, which the Times admitted on Thursday in the wake of the Breitbart News report were a “violation” of its standards, some of which Wright-Piersanti deleted and apologized for before hiding his Twitter account’s content from the public.

It seems to me that Mr. Sulzberger is trying to attack the truth with more fake news – ADB.

    NY Times: All the DemocRat news that’s s**t to print.

  2. The Flash says:

    Sulzberger uses the term “journalists”, when he should be using “liberal advocates” or “Democrat advocates” because that’s exactly what they have shown themselves to be over and over again, long before Trump became president. Of course, they’ve ramped up their advocacy since Trump was elected, but no intelligent person could describe these clowns as “journalists”.
