    The NYT changed a headline that read “Trump Urges Unity vs Racism” because of outrage from leftists.  They then changed it to “Assailing Hate not Guns.

    A TRUE newspaper doesn't let others determine their headlines.  They have integrity to not do such a thing. 

    “But more importantly, how the New York Times responded illustrated a growing failure in the public's expectations of the news.”

      Many simply listen to the news so they will know what lies are being told about issues and events. The simple fact that the NYT headlined the truth would have made most people's eyes narrow, causing them to wonder what's up with that? They don't see the change as a growing failure, they see it as no surprise that NYT turned on the truth.

      "The NYT changed a headline that read 'Trump Urges Unity vs Racism' . . .  to 'Assailing Hate not Guns.'"

      Thank goodness. That first headline is ridiculous and misleading. The second is much better.

    I read that. I'm surprised and disappointed. I guess integrity doesn't hold much importance anymore.

      Not since Trump was elected. He's the role model for lack of integrity so why are you surprised or disappointed? Be careful what you wish for..

        If you think people are naturally lemmings that makes sense.

        Oh wait. Many on the left are acting like lemmings. No wonder you'd say that.

          No I don't, but I do think those on the right ignore the hatred and lies coming from the Oval Office.

            I don't ignore anything.  It's a matter of perception.

            If you are driven by hatred of Trump it is much easier to read all kinds of things into anything he does. If you find all politicians to be liars it's easier to see his are just not as polished as some. 

            If you see all people as inherently equal,  you accept that criticisms are not racist; unless that criticism includes racist language (racist language not being newly defined bizarre takes on standard non racist words and terms popularized by conspiracy theorists on social media).  You can understand a lot,  if you look at people as just that and don't add a color qualifier as if that color is some type of handicap prohibiting them from being treated as is everyone else.

              Who's driven by hatred of Trump? I'm weary of this being used by the right to explain why the left and others don't like Trump. I can say your hatred of Obama or Hillary has you blind to the truth, but it will only be as true as your claim.

              Try, "you hate America," "or you're not a patriot," along with the other claim of hating Trump, and you'll sound just like Limbaugh or Hannity.  Blaming another's hate as an excuse won't cut it, LTL. Try something else..

                I will try this. You are being driven by your dislike for people that you don't even know and have no control over. Puppeteers got you by the string. . As far as I have seen if you couldn't bitch about Donald Trump you would have nothing to say. I think you're in love with the man. You are a parrot

                I don't hate Obama. I don't even think my disgust of Hillary mirrors hated,  but I grant you whatever she says,  whatever she does,  I look at in a negative light.

                I don't think any of us hate America.  But, your hatred of Trump is well documented throughout the threads.  I'm surprised you'd think denying it would cut it.

                  It's comical that you think being critical of Trump for zero standards of decency, calling him out for the deaths his hateful rhetoric clearly caused, or wanting a leader in the Oval Office who didn't break the laws of the country to get there constitutes hate. 

                  It's not hate to wonder why he committed multiple counts of obstruction of justice to protect a country, in Russia, who attacked us.  Many patriots would see that action as treasonous.  Not sure why Trump supporters such as yourself condone siding with the enemy, and backing politicians that block protections against further attacks.

                  Only in your cult-like reality is this hate and not a concern for America to want a more humane person in the Oval Office.

                    Valeant,  good to hear from you again.

                    I do admire a person who is consistent with their beliefs and convictions.

                    I may not agree, but I always know where you stand on an issue.

                    I have no problem with criticism of any politician. And, I agree with a lot of criticism of Trump. But, honesty and decency is not something reserved when dealing with those we like. Courtesy should not be solely determined by our opinion of the person we are discussing.

                    The left has lobbed too many insults at those they disagree with, because of their hatred of Trump. They have created an environment of fear. So much so that a newspaper can't pick its own headlines. Everyone fears government control of the media but we are now in a world where online mobs control it.

                    Most of your accusations toward Trump in that post are not backed by any fact anyone has ever been able to find. What law did he break to win? Are you referring to collusion that was never found? I can't support wishes and dreams. Give me a fact to back. You don't realize that undermining the office of the President with lies and innuendo will just escalate when a new president takes office.

                    The lines drawn between the branches of government serve a purpose. Separation of power needs to be maintained. Using politics to cripple any of those branches is dangerous. We've seen a major breakdown between that office and Congress during our adulthood and it has resulted in deadlock and stagnation.

                    We both take a fact and come to a conclusion. I use Occam's razor. You appear to be one of the sheeple led by the conspiracy theorists on the internet.

                    Once again, a left voice mirrors that it claims is the shortcoming of another. You appear, to me, to be brainwashed by a cult. And, I get it. People feel safer if they join a group. They feel empowered by consensus. I can't agree with what I see as wrong. I won't be silent just because the mob can't take opposing opinion with any grace.
