Team Trump Rips NY Times for Media Bias After Touting NY Times Report on Trump
Donald Trump isn’t fond of The New York Times. Just this week, he complained, “They don’t write good.”
But earlier tonight, the Trump campaign eagerly passed put out a press release and sent out an email touting a New York Times report today about how well Trump is doing with small-dollar donations.
The Times reported, “Donald J. Trump all but erased his enormous fundraising disadvantage against Hillary Clinton in the span of just two months, according to figures released by his campaign on Tuesday.”
But then, a little later, the Trump campaign sent out this email:

Yes, Team Trump is going after the Times for media bias for putting two anti-Trump sotires on its front page and ignoring stories damaging to President Obama and Hillary Clinton.
(For the record, the Iran money was exclusively reported by The Wall Street Journal last night.)
Oh, and by the way, that email was sent out less than an hour after the one touting the Times report on their fundraising:
