The New York Times has responded to a warning from Donald Trump's lawyers demanding the news organization take down an article in which two women claim to have been inappropriately touched by the real estate mogul.
Trump has denied that the alleged incidents ever took place and accused the paper of libel, threatening to pursue legal action against the paper if the story is not retracted.
"Mr. Trump has bragged about his non-consensual sexual touching of women. He has bragged about intruding on beauty pageant contestants in their dressing rooms. He acquiesced on a radio host's request to discuss Mr. Trump's own daughter as a 'piece of ass.' Multiple women not mentioned in our article have publicly come forward to report on Mr. Trump's unwanted advances. Nothing in our article has had the slightest effect on the reputation that Mr. Trump, through his own words and actions, has already created for himself."
"It would have been a disservice not just to our readers but to democracy itself to silence their voices. We did what the law allows: We published newsworthy information about a subject of deep public concern.

Your avatar says 'deny ignorance' in big print, yet you fail to realize something as simple as the fact the NYT is just an arm of the Hillary campaign.
And Breitbart and Alex Jones are apart of the Trump campaign.
As you may have heard, Trump is trying one of his standard tactics that he's used in the past -- lawsuits against anyone criticizing him

The NYT is saying to Donald, want to sue us, go ahead. You are not going to win. Not everyone buckles under the threat of his lawyers.

Calling into question the credibility of a supposed source is hardly deflection. The NYT certainly has a record that could raise eyebrows concerning credibility and impartiality.
So does Donald Trump.
What's your point?
