Former NYT Executive Editor ADMITS: Paper ‘Unmistakably anti-Trump’

The former executive editor of New York Times has slammed the paper for its anti-Trump bias and obvious work as a public relations arm of Hillary R. Clinton’s 2016 presidential bid, according to excerpts from her upcoming book.

According to Fox News, who first published the excerpts, Jill Abramson describes the paper as “unmistakably anti-Trump.”

Abramson was the executive editor of the former paper of record from 2011-2014. She was fired after at least a year’s worth of turbulence with Dean Baquet, the paper’s managing editor at the time. She bashed Baquet for turning the paper into an “opposition party.”

“Though Baquet said publicly he didn’t want the Times to be the opposition party, his news pages were unmistakably anti-Trump,” Abramson said in the book. “Some headlines contained raw opinion, as did some of the stories that were labeled as news analysis.”
