NYT: editor in chief WSJ makes colleagues to reduce the pressure of criticism.
NEW YORK, August 24. /TASS/. The journalists of the Wall Street Journal is unhappy with the desire of editor-in-chief Gerard Baker to force them to refrain from unfounded criticism of US President Donald trump.
First of all we are talking about the interpretation of speeches and statements of the President, said Wednesday in its electronic version of the newspaper The New York Times.
She cites emails in which the chief editor of the WSJ has commented about the original version of the article about trump’s speech Tuesday in Phoenix (Arizona). “I’m sorry. This is a comment submitted as a report. Couldn’t we simply just Express, that he [the U.S. President] said, and do not pack the contents in the interpretation and selective criticism?” — wrote Baker.
The NYT also compares the original and approved versions of this article. In the final publication disappeared a fragment, which explained than trump’s speech in Arizona was very different from his previous speeches and statements. In particular, the editor deleted a comparison of this statement with “return to the manner of conducting the election campaign” that, according to the author, radically different from the remarks made by the tramp of the day before, “in which he only called to unity.”
