NY Times Editor Claims Paper Not ‘Anti-Trump’

At the Financial Times Future of News event in New York on Thursday, a deputy managing editor for The New York Times declared that the prominent leftwing newspaper “is in no way anti-Trump.”

The annual event is designed to facilitate discussions between “top media and advertising executives, editors, academic,s and technology leaders.” An overview stated, “Trust and transparency remain key issues, as the fourth estate becomes entangled in the polarization of American politics, and the major technology platforms struggle to clamp down on the use of fake news to derail democracy.”

This year’s speakers included Rebecca Blumenstein, deputy managing editor of The Times, who was quoted saying, “We are in no way anti-Trump.”
