Do you respect the New York Times?

America's newspaper of record came under fire yet again when they claimed President Trump "has brought a reality-show accessibility to a once-aloof presidency." Journalists say that kind of opining belongs on the editorial page, while others accused the paper of trading positive coverage for access and normalizing Trump's erratic behavior. But defenders say the Times is striving to reach beyond coastal liberalism and offer opposing viewpoints—isn't that journalism's job? What do you think? 📰

Plenty of Trump's defenders ask: where's the lie??

But others claim the paper is normalizing dangerously unstable and undemocratic behavior.

But many say this is the absolute worst time to ditch America's biggest paper. Urge them to be better, but don't cancel your subscription—unless you think Mark Zuckerberg will do a better job of delivering you objective reporting.

Critics ask: what do they mean by "reality show accessibility"? This president has given fewer press conferences than any of his predecessors in history. And are rural white Americans really outside the establishment?

But for others, the New York Times is still one of the most respected institutions in the media world. Yes, they make mistakes, but canceling your subscription is a major overreaction to coverage you disagree with.
