The New York Times changes Trump headline after Democrats complain: 'Not the truth. Not worth it.'

Democrats unleashed a wave of criticism against The New York Times on Monday night over a front-page headline that said President Trump’s urged “unity” during his response to the back-to-back mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.
The original title, “Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism,” appeared on the front page of The Times’ first edition Tuesday covering Mr. Trump’s remarks in which he condemned bigotry and white supremacy. The headline was later changed to “Assailing Hate But Not Guns,” after a torrent of criticism from prominent Democrats.


I canceled my subscription. I know a lot of folks will tell me I'm wrong. I will miss it. But I can't keep rewarding such awful news judgment. "Trump Urges Unity Against Racism" is almost as bad as their full-page Comey letter coverage just before 2016 election. Nobody learns. https://twitter.com/BetoORourke/status/1158549774490120193

Some critics argued that the headline didn’t provide enough context for Mr. Trump’s remarks, and others wanted more attention on the fact that his speech didn’t address gun control.
The Times acknowledged in a statement Tuesday that the original headline was “flawed” and had been changed.

“The original headline was flawed and was changed for all editions of the paper following the first edition,” the paper said. “The headline in question never appeared online, only in the first print edition.”
