After receiving backlash for their front page summary of Trump’s Monday remarks, The New York Times has changed the second print edition to reflect the complaints.
The first edition was deemed unacceptable when the headline directly summarized Trump’s remarks instead of editorializing. FiveThirtyEight‘s Nate Silver was one of the first to rip into the Times.
Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker took the opportunity to jump in as well.
A few hours later, it looked as if the paper of recorded decided to correct the record and take a second stab at the headline in their 2nd printing. Nate Silver caught the tweet and shared again.
Earlier Monday, Dan Rather also warned journalists not to directly quote the President but to add “context” to his speeches before covering.
