NY Times Stealth-Edits Article to Remove Embarrassing Obama Admission
If you read The New York Times‘ story on President Barack Obama‘s private meeting with news columnists Friday morning, you may have caught one quote that made the President look particularly bad:Pathetic all the way around, from a POTUS who gets his intelligence about terrorism from cable news, to a liberal rag that runs around covering up obama's numerous messes.
In his meeting with the columnists, Mr. Obama indicated that he did not see enough cable television to fully appreciate the anxiety after the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, and made clear that he plans to step up his public arguments.The President of the United States failed to understand that Americans were anxious after two major terrorist attacks in Western cities because he doesn’t watch TV? It’s an admission that opponents are sure to use to make the president seem out-of-touch at best, and unconcerned about a serious threat at worst.
But just as the quote was beginning to make the rounds, it disappeared entirely from the the Times piece, without a correction or any indication that the piece had been updated.
Here's a few responses from the Twittersphere.
Following up on the last one, maybe if obama did watch cable news he'd get an inkling of how we feel about him.
Fox News analyst Lt. Col. Ralph Peters did not mince words when expressing his displeasure with President Barack Obama Monday morning, saying on Fox Business’ Varney & Co. that he was a “total pussy.”No argument from this corner.
“Mr. President we’re not afraid, we’re angry, we’re pissed off, we’re furious! We want you to react, we want you to do something!” Peters said.
“You’re afraid!” he continued. “This guy is such a total pussy, it’s stunning.”
