Trump Berates NY Times For Headline Changes

President Trump ripped The New York Times on Monday for repeatedly changing a headline on an article regarding a trillion-dollar coronavirus relief package "to satisfy the radical left," calling the modifications "corrupt" and "dangerous" for the U.S.

"The New York Times changed headlines 3 times in order to satisfy the Radical Left. What should have been a good story got 'worse & worse', until the headline alone made it very unfair," the president tweeted. "Fake & Corrupt News that is very dangerous for our Country!"

The Hill reports Trump's ire came after the Times changed the original headline on an article, "Democrats Block Action on $1.8 Trillion Stimulus," to "Democrats Block Action on Stimulus Plan, Seeking Worker Protections" and then to "Partisan Divide Threatens Deal on Rescue Plan."

The coronavirus stimulus package, which is designed to help offset potentially catastrophic economic impacts of the virus, is still being negotiated after Senate Democrats blocked a procedural vote on the measure late Sunday.
