NY Times writes 1300 words on Dem senator’s corruption trial … guess which word they left out

And this is why people don’t trust The New York Times.

The publication spent nearly 1,300 words on a story covering the bribery trial of US Sen. Robert Menendez, but not one of those words was “Democrat.”

Oversight? Not likely.

In the print story on Monday and on social media, the Times failed to tell readers that the New Jersey lawmaker facing corruption charges is a Democrat, according to The Daily Caller which noted that the paper referred to Menendez 29 times in the story without once referring to his party affiliation.

Calling him “the senator,” “Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey,” and “Mr. Menendez, a senior senator,” the Times left out a seemingly important detail in the story headlined, “Menendez Trial Set to Begin With Tensions High and Washington Watching.”

Fox News’ Martha MacCallum goes snake hunting: ‘How’s Comey going to explain this?’

After an outcry on social media, the paper apparently added the word once in the fourth paragraph of the story.

Menendez is charged with 12 corruption-related counts, including bribery and fraud. The 63 year-old senator who is seeking his third term, allegedly accepted improper campaign donations and gifts like luxury trips and private jet flights. He has maintained his innocence since his indictment over two years ago.

Readers gave The New York Times a thorough and deserved take-down following the story’s publication.
