Sen. Ted Cruz criticized The New York Times on Sunday for being “partisan propagandists” in a tweet touching on the same subject that President Donald Trump broached earlier in the day.

“The NYT is destroying itself w/ Trump hatred. And it’s ultimately bad for freedom of the press when ‘journalists’ openly revel in being partisan propagandists,” Cruz wrote. “When our Nation is so tribalised that each side has their own ‘news’ & ‘facts’ and we don’t even talk to each other,”

Cruz, basing his criticism on a story published on the conservative blog Red State, urged his Twitter followers to READ the transcript, The [NYT] editor said “(in effect) ‘for 2 yrs, we covered ‘Russia, Russia, Russia,’ facts be damned; now we’ll scream ‘racism, racism, racism’ for 18 mos, and the rest of the media follow us.’”

Cruz was referring to a meeting New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet had with staff concerning the paper’s coverage and a recent print headline that said “Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism” in describing the president’s response to a mass shootings in El Paso, and Dayton earlier this month, according to The Hill.

After many on the Left criticized it for being unfairly sympathetic and giving too much credit to Trump, the Times quickly changed the headline.

In the president’s tweet earlier in the day, Trump called the coverage of the Times a "racism witch hunt."
