The New York Times is defending its report Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussed secretly recording President Trump, in an effort to remove him from office.
Deputy managing editor of the Times, Matt Purdy released a statement Saturday, saying the paper stands with Mike Schmidt and Adam Goldman who broke the story.
Purdy wrote, “just because you don’t like the facts, don’t comfort yourself by dismissing the story as fake reporting.”
He added it’s the responsibility of the media to report the facts, however comforting or discomforting they may be.
The DOJ has released a statement saying Rosenstein’s comments were sarcastic, while Rosenstein has outright denied the report.
The post NYT stands by Rosenstein story, says response from DOJ not consistent with reporting appeared first on One America News Network.
