New York Times publisher rips ‘reckless’ President Trump after his ‘true enemy of the people’ attack

He’s picking on the wrong old gray lady.

The ongoing war of words between President Trump and The New York Times reached a fever pitch Wednesday, with both sides slinging insults as they argued over one of the fundamental principles of American democracy: the rights of the free press.

The commander-in-chief set off the fiery exchange with one of his most inflammatory anti-media insults — this one prompted by yet another damning news story about his administration in the Times.

“The New York Times reporting is false. They are a true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!” Trump tweeted as part of a chain of media-hating morning posts.
