In typical fashion, the New York Times caved to the left-wing Twitter mob, changing its front page headline for Tuesday covering President Trump’s statement on the recent shootings. The original headline was changed from “TRUMP URGES UNTIY VS. RACISM” to “ASSAILING HATE BUT NOT GUNS.” President Trump swiftly called NYT to the carpet for “fake news.” Even Bill Clinton’s political advisor Mark Penn went on the record calling it an “astounding development in journalism.” The NYT has been an arm of the DNC for years; is anyone surprised anymore?

Amid a flood of criticism from Democratic presidential candidates and Trump critics, The New York Times changed the initial headline of its front-page story for Tuesday on President Trump’s televised statement responding to the horrific mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.
In his prepared remarks on Monday, Trump condemned white supremacy and all forms of racial hatred, called for Americans to come together, and urged congressional leaders to work toward bipartisan solutions to help prevent future tragedies. The Times initially gave its coverage of Trump’s speech the headline “TRUMP URGES UNITY VS. RACISM,” as shown in a preview of Tuesday’s edition circulated online. But, as The Daily Wire reported, after a flood of complaints from the Left, including several Democratic presidential hopefuls, the Times altered the headline to “ASSAILING HATE BUT NOT GUNS.”
