Not one to let an opportunity to criticize the liberal media pass him by, President Trump took to Twitter Sunday to criticize The New York Times’ new “Truth” ad—which takes shots at his administration and will debut tonight during the Oscars—advising the paper that they would be better served if they reported the news “accurately and fairly.”
For first time the failing @nytimes will take an ad (a bad one) to help save its failing reputation. Try reporting accurately & fairly!

The fact that the Times is resorting to using its first-ever television ad during the Oscars to defend itself against Trump’s repeated attacks on the paper’s coverage of his administration shows just how deep a nerve he has struck at the nation’s leading liberal newspaper.
