Setting The Facts Straight For Trump Regarding The New York Times

November 14, 2016

The fact-challenged  Donald Trump needs to pay attention.

Trump made an assertion last week that The New York Times has lost thousands of subscribers. That is wrong.

The fact is the NYT has seen a surge in digital subscriptions. When factoring in cancellations, it has, since Election Day, added four times the average number of net new digital and print subscriptions.

Facts matter.

    The past 13 days prove why Trump wants to have a neutered press. Can you imagine if there were no one to check him? OMG!

    And then we have this little gem, most of the anti-Trump protesters arrested for riot activities in Portland, OR didn’t vote. http://www.kgw.com/news/local/more-than-half-of-arrested-anti-trump-protesters-didnt-vote/351964445 IDGETS!!!

    Mark Phillips (pk) finds this funny–but many Americans died to keep the right to vote in this nation. My dad was a WWII veteran and instilled in his children the responsibility of voting. So when we now know that in 2012, (for example) voters waited an average of about 14 minutes to cast a ballot but for about 5 percent they waited longer than an hour. We need to be mindful that small fraction, in a presidential election, is several million voters. Dad would want the reason he went to war–to stop Japan and Hitler from winning and very likely impacting our democracy–to make the act of voting to be uninhibited and accessible for all. So, chuckle away, Mark, many died so you can do that very thing.

    It’s a sorry state we’re in when he can’t remember small stuff like that…..or at least fact check it first before blurting out incorrect information.
