NY Times Reporter Recieves Death Threats From Angry Bernie Sanders Supporters

Amy ChozickA New York Times journalist reported on Twitter that she had received three separate death threats after penning a piece calling the Democratic primary for Hillary Clinton.

“Hillary Clinton Has Clinched Democratic Nomination, Survey Reports,” Times reporters Amy Chozick and Patrick Healy wrote Monday. The piece was not based off of the Times‘ delegate count, but reported on an announcement from the Associated Press that they were calling the race for Clinton.

Supporters of Clinton’s opponent Bernie Sanders were less than happy with the piece, and at least three of them called Chozick on her personal phone to threaten her.
