New York Times Bullied Into Deleting Tweet By Outraged Liberals

Published

The former paper of record was forced to delete a Tweet Thursday after users of the microblogging platform deemed it “insensitive.”

“We’re sorry for this tweet. In retrospect, a Twitter poll is insensitive in light of the gravity of this hearing. We’ve deleted it,” the New York Times said, attaching a screenshot of the Tweet in question.

The Times’ followers, it seems, were unhappy with a poll asking whether readers found Christine Blasey Fored’s testimony against Brett Kavanaugh in Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing credible.

“This is sick!” she said.

The Times eventually caved to the bombardment of the social justice mob, which ironically they have helped to create by turner their once-revered newspaper into a leftist rag.

Another lesson learned: no matter how politically correct one remains, the social justice crows will always want more.
