Trump accuses NYT of ‘racism witch hunt’ after leaked meeting


♪ ♪>>Katie: “THE NEW YORK TIMES” LAST OF HER BIAS AFTER A LEAKED TRANSCRIPT REVEALED ITS NEW PLAN TO GO AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP. THE PAPER’S EXECUTIVE EDITOR FORCED TO HOLD A CRISIS TOWN HALL MEETING AFTER LIBERAL BACKLASH FOR CHANGING A HEADLINE ABOUT RECENT SHOOTINGS FROM “TRUMP URGES TRIGGER UNITY “TRUMP URGES TRIGGER UNIT” “TRUMP URGES TRIGGER UNITT “TRUMP URGES TRIGGER UNITO “ASSAILING HATE BUT NOT GUNS.” THE EDITORS THING WE BUILD OUR NEWSROOM TO COVER ONE STORY AND WE DID ACTUALLY WELL BUT AFTER RUSSIAN COLLUSION FELL APART, THE EDITOR SAYS THAT EDITOR’S FOCUSING ON A NEW ISSUE. REGROUP AND TAKE ON A DIFFERENT STORY. THE TRANSCRIPT IS REVIEWING BUT IT SOLIDIFIED WHAT WE ARTIE KNEW.>>Jesse: WAS REVEALING, THEY ARE NOT AS INFLUENTIAL AS THEY THINK THEY ARE AND THEY ADMITTED THEY ARE PARTISAN ACTIVISTS. REAL JOURNALISTS WOULD LOOK, HOW DO THEY RUSH A HOAX COME INTO BEING? THEY ARE SPENDING OUR TIME LOOKING BACK. THEY HAVE TURNED A BLIND EYE TO IT AND THEY ARE NOW LOOKING AT WHAT ELSE CAN TAKE OUT TRUMP. RACE I DON’T BELIEVE WE’LL HAVE THE SAME TYPE OF EFFECT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT AS THEY WERE SHOVING DEBORAH YOU CAN SEE THE RATINGS FOR THE CABLES THAT PUSHED THAT HULKS ARE NOT REBOUNDING AS THEY APPROVE IT TO RACE. APPROVAL FOR DONALD TRUMP AMONG HISPANICS AND BLACK AMERICANS SINCE JANUARY HAS ACTUALLY GONE UP. IT’S ALSO NOT A VERY INSPIRING MESSAGE TO SAY THAT THE COUNTRY IS FOUNDED ON RACISM, IT’S A RACIST NATION, AND WE NEED TO DESTROY IT AND INSTITUTE SOCIALISM IN ORDER TO HEAL IT. THAT TYPE OF MESSAGING TO THIS COUNTRY IS RACIST AND THAT TRUMP IS RACIST AT ALL TRUMP VOTERS ARE RACIST ARE GOING TO TURN OFF THE VERY VOTERS THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO NEED TO RECAPTURE THOSE RUST BELT DISTRICTS IN ORDER TO WIN BACK THE WHITE HOUSE. RACE ISN’T GOING TO WORK. IT’S GOT TO BE HEALTH CARE, EDUCATION, AS JUAN SAID, AND JOBS.>>Katie: JUAN, YOU LOOK LIKE YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY.>>Juan: WE DO, YOUR HONOR. I WANT TO SEE MY TIME TO MR. WATTERS. RUSSIA HOAX. DID YOU MISS THE ENTIRE MUELLER REPORT THAT SAID RUSSIA INTERFERED IN THE 2016 — THERE WAS NO FINDING OF ANY COLLUSION, NO INVESTIGATION. IT WAS A INVESTIGATION TO CONSPIRACY.>>Katie: AS A JOURNALIST, DO YOU THINK THIS TYPE OF CONVERSATION –>>Juan: I SAID THAT I WOULD SEE THE POINT TO JESSE BECAUSE I THINK HE IS INDICTING HIMSELF.>>Katie: AS A JOURNALIST FOR MANY YEARS, DO YOU THINK THESE CONVERSATIONS ABOUT ACTIVISM ARE APPROPRIATE?>>Juan: I THINK YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBERS. WE HAD A POLL AT FOX THAT SAID TWO-THIRDS OF AMERICANS THINK HE’S TEARING THE COUNTRY APART. THAT INCLUDES MORE THAN 60% OF WHITE AMERICANS. SOMETHING IS GOING ON IN TERMS OF THE SOCIAL FABRIC, AND IF YOU’RE A JOURNALIST, HOW COULD YOU NOT PAY ATTENTION TO IT. TO MY MIND, YOU KNOW IT’S LIKE THIS IS NOT A NEW TOPIC FOR THE TIMES. “THE TIMES” HAVE BEEN COVERING IT. THIS IS SOMETHING THEY NEED TO DO. I THINK WHAT YOU HEAR IS WE PUT A LOT OF EFFORT INTO COVERING MUELLER AND THE CONSPIRACY ARGUMENT, JESSE, AND I THINK THEY DID A PRETTY GOOD JOB. THEY WERE WAY AHEAD OF OTHER PEOPLE SAYING — I THINK THEY WERE AHEAD OF SAYING, AHEAD OF ALL THOSE PEOPLE THE OTHER CHANNELS FEEDING THIS CONSPIRACY. THEY WERE NOT IN THAT CAMP.>>Jesse: THE OTHER CHANNELS FOLLOW EVERYTHING WRITTEN IN THE TIMES.>>Greg: THE CONSPIRACY IS THAT THEY ARE CREATING A FRAMEWORK TO SHAPE THE NEWS TO LAY OUT A BLUEPRINT SO THAT YOU CAN SLOT IN THE STORIES ABOUT RACE. THE POLLS SAY THEY THINK TRUMP IS TEARING THE COUNTRY APART, IT’S IRRELEVANT. IT’S THE MEDIA THAT’S CREATING THE NARRATIVE THAT PEOPLE HEAR ABOUT. THE FACT IS THE CURTAIN IS PULLED BACK. WE SEE THIS AND WE ARE SURPRISED. THE MEDIA SMIRKS BECAUSE IT’S BEEN THIS WAY ALL ALONG. RACISM IS A QUANTITY WHERE IN THE DO — THE MEDIA, THE DEMAND EXCEEDS THE SUPPLY. THE SLEEVE ARTICLE, I DIDN’T READ IT BUT I ASSUME IT WAS WELL-RESEARCHED, PROBABLY WELL DONE BUT I DIDN’T READ IT. MY ASSUMPTIONS ARE THIS IS ALL PART OF A GREATER NARRATIVE TO PAINT DONALD TRUMP AS RACIST. I’M GOING TO LOOK AT EVERYTHING THEY DO HAS SOMEHOW ARTIFICIALLY CONSTRUCTED TO DEMONIZE SOMEBODY, AND IT’S NOT GOING TO STOP. IT’S GOING TO GET WORSE WE HAVE TO ADMIT THIS COUNTRY OVERTIME GETS LESS RACIST. DO YOU THINK WE ARE LESS RACIST NOW THAN THEY ’60s WERE ’50s OR 1860s? IT’S GETTING BETTER BUT THEY DON’T LIKE THAT STORY. THINGS ARE GOING SO WELL THAT THEY NEED TO DEMONIZE EVERYBODY. THIS IS BIGGER THAN WATERGATE.>>Juan: I THINK THINGS ARE GETTING BETTER IN TERMS OF RACE. IF I COMPARE WHERE MY FATHER WAS TO WHERE I AM, I DON’T THINK THERE’S ANY QUESTION. BUT I WILL SAY, LOOK.>>Greg: AND YOUR POINT THERE.>>Juan: ANYONE WHO’S COVERED TRUMP KNOWS HE’S HAD TROUBLE WITH THE RACE ISSUE ALL ALONG. FEDERAL SUITS ABOUT HOUSING DISCRIMINATION, THE BIRTHER MOVEMENT. I COULD GO ON. I WROTE A BOOK ABOUT THIS A YEAR AGO. THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SOMEHOW IT SUDDENLY DISCOVERING DISCOVERING — IT’S BEEN AN ISSUE WITH TRUMP.>>Greg: IF YOU TAKE EACH OF THOSE SEPARATELY, THEY ADD UP TO VERY LITTLE.>>Dana: ON THE RUSSIA THING, A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT WERE GOOD NEWS, IT WAS A LOT OF TIME, ALWAYS HINTING THAT TRUMP WAS BEHIND IT. THE PODCAST, THE THINGS THEY DI DID. I THINK THERE IS A GENERATIONAL CHANGE IN THE NEWSROOM. THERE IS A GENERATIONAL CHANGE WERE NOW I THINK IT’S PARTLY BECAUSE OF THE WAY UNIVERSITIES TRAIN JOURNALISTS NOW THAT THEY ARE ACTIVISTS AND INSTEAD OF REPORTING THE NEWS. NEWS ORGANIZATIONS USE TO BE WORRIED THEY MIGHT MAKE THEIR ADVERTISERS MAD. HE WORKED IN MAGAZINES, RIGHT? THEY ARE NOT GOING TO LIKE TO SEE THAT ARTICLE NEXT TO THE PICTURE OF THEIR GREAT PRODUCT FOR THAT WAS THEIR WORRY. NOW THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT THEIR OWN REPORTERS. JUST REPORT THE NEWS. BASHING THE MEDIA IS A BIPARTISAN SUPPORT. WHERE IS BERNIE SANDERS, FIGURING OUT A WAY TO GET HIS BASE ENERGIZED, BASH THE MEDIA.>>Greg: “NEW YORK TIMES” IS NO DIFFERENT THAN MEDIA MATTERS. THEY ARE BOTH PUSHING AN AGENDA, POLITICAL, IDEOLOGICAL AGENDA.
