'I almost got a good headline!'

• by David Martosko

Times originally ran a page-one headline reading 'Trump Urges Unity Vs. Racism'

It changed to 'Assailing Hate But Not Guns' after reporters complained

Twitter outrage added pressure to top Times brass; executive editor's defense was that the paper wasn't trying to 'mollify' the president

Trump vented on Twitter that a mob of 'radical left Democrats' had forced the Times to change course 

President Donald Trump complained Wednesday after The New York Times changed a positive Page One headline about Monday's speech following a pair of mass-shootings.

The switch was made to accommodate outraged reporters and Twitter pundits who objected to its cast of Trump's speech in a flattering light.
