Sara Carter: The New York Times Executive Editor ‘Should Be Fired’
Last week, the Washington Examiner’s Byron York published a piece exposing the New York Times’ latest tactic to take down President Trump and skew reporting. The audio of the New York Times leaked town hall meeting was first reported by Slate.
The paper’s executive editor Dean Baquet instructed reporters to shift the focus from the now debunked Trump/Russia collusion to Trump’s alleged racism.
“We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well,” Baquet said. “Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story.”
Sara Carter, an award-winning investigative journalist, told Sean Hannity Monday night that the New York Times’ latest move is failing its readers and dangerous for the country.
“As an investigator, you go out, you see it, you collect the evidence, and then you report it to the American people or to the local community that I was covering,” Carter told Hannity, referencing her previous work at the Daily Bulletin, in Ontario, California.
That’s exactly what Carter’s been doing since the genesis of her career.
Carter reported from inside Mexico in some of the most dangerous drug cartel strongholds. She, like many other war correspondents, traveled to Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan to report from the front lines of the war on terror.
Carter told Hannity, “The New York Times did not want to know the truth because had they wanted to know the truth they would’ve been right there with us all along, uncovering the same information that we uncovered throughout the last two and a half years.”
Earlier this year, the paper published an “anti-semitic cartoon globally with President Trump and Netanyahu.”
The backlash drove the paper to entirely cancel its cartoon page. “The executive editor should be ashamed, should be fired from the New York Times and we should get back to reporting real stories and letting the American people see what the evidence is,” Carter concluded.
