New York Times a 'pipe organ for the Democratic Party'

New York Times a 'pipe organ for the Democratic Party'”

President Donald Trump blasted The New York Times on Thursday after its editorial board took over the paper's opinion Twitter account to oppose Republicans' tax plans. "They are wrong so often that now I know we have a victor!", Trump posted on Twitter.

"Don't let Trump's tweets of Islamophobic conspiracy theories distract you".

The tweets mark the president's latest Twitter attack on a news organization.

The New York Times editorial board on Wednesday posted on #thetaxbillhurts its reasons for opposing the plan and listed the names and contact information for senators - including John McCain and Jeff Flake, both Republicans of Arizona - who are still in the undecided column.

The US Senate on Wednesday took a step toward passage of tax legislation that is a top White House priority, setting up a likely decisive vote later this week even though it was unclear if the bill had enough Republican support to become law.

In October, the New York Times issued updated their guidelines for their journalist's use of social media, which said that "newsroom employees should avoid posting anything on social media that damages our reputation for neutrality and fairness". Among other things, the paper asked all its reporters - not just those covering politics - to refrain from partisan messages on social media.

Great, and we should boycott Fake News CNN. "Or they can vote no, to protect the public", one of the tweets said.

Deputy Managing Editor Clifford Levy tweeted that Trump was "mistaken" in his assertion that the tweets violated the Times social media rulebook. Its opinion section, however, is considered separate from its newsroom.
