Did The New York Times Lie? (Again)

Ethics Observations by: Editor@NewsLede.net

Short answer-“Yes”

Second question-“Does that surprise anyone?”

Answer-“Not many”

Detail-The Questions I submitted to the Times at their Editor’s invitation which will never grace their pages…

Does anyone at The New York Times consider that the visible decay in journalism ethics is causing the rise in public distrust of the news media? Do you personally realize the additional damage this stunt caused to the threads of credibility remaining with The Times? Can you grasp that your “Ghost Writer” had nothing but praise for Trump’s substance and that all of his criticism was on style? If the Federal Government began releasing policy pronouncements from “Anonymous sources” would you publish them?
