Donald Trump: The New York Times is going to hell
Donald Trump is none too pleased about the new TrumpNation book, a tell-all expose about The Donald that pegs his net worth at the sub-billion-dollar level. In a post on the Trump Blog, Donald rips the new book, beats up the book's author and launches into a diatribe about The New York Times:
"Someone just wrote a book about me. It's the biggest pile of garbage I've ever seen, written by a highly questionable and, some people say, disgraced reporter named Tim O'Brien. I looked up O'Brien on the Internet and found stories comparing him to Jayson Blair. Blair was The New York Times' infamous reporter, who was fired in shame after he was found guilty of fabricating stories, sources, and quotes. Jayson Blair almost took down The New York Times, and now the paper might be taken down by Judith Miller, who's just as bad as Jayson Blair...
The fact is The New York Times is going to hell. They published a major story about me on Sunday that they knew was wrong... The paper's editors knew the story was wrong, but they wanted to try and sell newspapers. The New York Times was once a great newspaper, but it's not worth the paper it's printed on anymore. Changes have to be made. The New York Times is now reeling from so many huge mistakes by reporters and management that people are saying it's one of the worst newspapers in America."
If you happen to cross paths with Donald Trump this week, it's probably best to change course and start running in the opposite direction - at least until things simmer down. And don't mention the hair, whatever you do.
