The Trump organization probably won't sue The New York Times over its cover story about Donald Trump and his relationships with women through the years, but it does owe him and former girlfriend Rowanne Brewer Lane a retraction and apology over the piece, Executive Vice President and Trump special counsel Michael Cohen said Tuesday.

"They need to actually be fair because they're destroying their paper," Cohen told CNN's Chris Cuomo on the "New Day" program.

On Monday, Brewer Lane told Fox News that she was not happy to see how The Times depicted her relationship with Trump, and that the newspaper had lied to her about how it would tell her story.

The Times in a statement Monday said it stands behind its story, which Trump called "false, malicious and libelous," including the part involving Brewer Lane.

Cohen told Cuomo that "everything" in the media about Trump in the past week has been negative, but "yet you don't hear anything negative right now" in regard to Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton or her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

"For example, a story that came out — $2 million disappeared from the Clinton Foundation, paid for one of Bill Clinton's alleged ex-girlfriends," said Cohen. "Where is the story on that? We're talking about people, who are looking to run for the presidency of the United States of America. It should be fair and unbiased."

Cohen accused The Times of deciding on its story angle before the writing began on it, as there were many people who they tried to speak with who had nothing but positive things to say about Trump.

"Mr. Trump is not a sexist," said Cohen, insisting the candidate treats everyone the same. "He is not a misogynist. I've walked shoulder-to-shoulder for a decade with him. I've never seen him behave any way that is described about Mr. Trump in this New York Times article. I just have never, ever seen it."

Meanwhile, Clinton's biggest problem is that she has a low favorability rate among men, said Cohen.

"She has to stick with the women, right," he said, responding to a new anti-Trump ad released by a pro-Clinton super PAC. "Otherwise, she is going to be blown out of this race. So what is the best thing to do, she is going to turn around and try to create this gender warfare between Trump supporters and Clinton supporters."
