New York Times Hires President Trump as Chief Fact Checker
NEW YORK CITY - New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger announced Sunday morning that effective immediately, every article the newspaper publishes both in print and online would first be fact-checked by President Trump before publication.
“This isn’t just for stories covering politics. We want the president’s rigorous objectivity brought to bear on our health, sports, travel and arts stories as well. The days of crossword puzzle errors are over,” said Mr. Sulzberger.
As soon as the news broke, Jeff Bezos, the owner of the Washington Post fumed on Twitter, disappointed in his staff for not hiring the president to fact check its own stories.
“How could WP staff miss such a huge opportunity to tighten up reporting. Can POTUS fact check for two newspapers? Is that constitutional?’ tweeted Mr. Bezos.
The Satirical Post reached out to President Trump to see how he would have time to read so many articles covering so many topics and correct the boundless errors he will inevitably find.
“Well, I’m quick reader. Read very fast. Very. In fact I’ve been told I’m probably the fastest reader there’s ever been. I’m not sure, but I trust the person who told me that. He’s never lied, so he’s probably right. I don’t see why I wouldn’t be the fastest reader there ever was,” responded President Trump.
