    New York Times self-censors headline because it reflected positively on Trump

    Original headline:

    "TRUMP URGES UNITY VS. RACISM"

    After outrage on social media:

    "ASSAILING HATE BUT NOT GUNS"

    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    Saw that earlier. The tweets of disapproval over the initial headline from the leftist candidates for Prez were absolutely disgusting. "Never let a good tragedy go to waste" seems to be their motto

    Cowards! That is your lame stream media...
    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

    "Trump was responsible for this"
    "Lives literally depend on you doing better, NYT. "Please do."

    That’s not what happened.

    Unbelievable.

    And isn't Nate Silver the pollster that carpe harps on as the epitome of nonpartisan unbiased polling?

    TelePrompter Trump is not the real Trump.
    “I think God, in creating man, somewhat overestimated his ability.” ― Oscar Wilde
    “You can safely assume you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.” ― Anne Lamott
    “And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that He would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence” ― Bertrand Russell
