It’s nice to see that the New York Times is standing up to Trump’s threat of a libel suit. But they’re only doing this because they see the tables turning against him. They spent almost two years gently massaging his genitals just in case he got the presidency. They didn’t care if his ideas were insane. They reported it as if it were well-thought-out policy. The end result is that the New York Times was as much of an enabler of Trump as Fox News. So do not get all excited about the Times fighting with Trump. It’s a publicity stunt. They’re hoping that people have short memories. They’re hoping that we’ll still see them on the side of liberalism and progressivism. Don’t be fooled. This is a game and we’re the pawns.
