Is the liberal media trying to sabotage Trump? Follow us for a second on this one....
Buzzfeed's Ben Smith noted in his column today that Trump did a sitdown with the Times, presumably to pitch the paper for an endorsement. These meetings are both on and off the record. As Smith notes:
The New York Times is sitting on an audio recording that some of its staff believes could deal a serious blow to Donald Trump who, in an off-the-record meeting with the newspaper, called into question whether he would stand by his own immigration views.
Trump visited the paper’s Manhattan headquarters on Tuesday, Jan. 5, part of a round of editorial board meetings that — as is traditional — the Democratic candidates for president and some of the Republicans attended. The meetings, conducted partly on the record and partly off the record in a 13th floor conference room, give candidates a chance to make their pitch for the paper’s endorsement.
