NY Times continued on its inability to cop to reporting on Individual-1’s racism, pretending that his call for unity means anything since he’s done this several times in his tenure, only to return to divisive rhetoric immediately. This is what passes for the NY Times’s journalistic objectivity as a member of corporate MSM. Then again perhaps they’re following the editorial policies of the Toledo Blade.
Tomorrow's NYT print edition.
Not sure "TRUMP URGES UNITY VS. RACISM" is how I would have framed the story. pic.twitter.com/quOibXsp32

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. https://t.co/FNUyXN9TmB
