Several New York Times staff members are criticizing an op-ed written by Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton that was published on Wednesday. They argue the piece, titled “Tom Cotton: Send In The Troops…

“The Times editorial board has forcefully defended the protests as patriotic and criticized the use of force, saying earlier today that police too often have ‘responded with more violence — against protesters, journalists and bystanders.’ We’ve also crusaded for years against the underlying, systemic cruelties that led to these protests,” Bennet wrote.

“As part of our explorations of these issues, Times Opinion has published powerful arguments supporting protests, advocating fundamental change and criticizing police abuses,” Bennet added. “Times Opinion owes it to our readers to show them counter-arguments, particularly those made by people in a position to set policy. We understand that many readers find Senator Cotton’s argument painful, even dangerous. We believe that is one reason it requires public scrutiny and debate.

Why are they publishing advice on running big cities from a Senator in Arkansas? How is that even relevant? Who cares what Tom Cotton thinks about New York or LA or Chicago? I don't get it.

I mean it is an op ed section, so it should only run opinions that are all the same? Im actually surprised the nyt published it as well

NYT used to be respectable. Now tabloids with pics of aliens on the cover seem to have better journalism standards and much more solid sources.

Apparently you can only have Liberal opinions in life

New York Times Staffers React With Fury Over Tom Cotton's 'Send In The Troops' Op-EdThe New York Times newsroom is in full revolt over an op-ed the newspaper's opinion section published that called for the army to be deployed into American cities to crush protests over police brutality and systemic racism. The Park Slope Paper of deanbaquet, cliffordlevy and billdeblasio pal benyt needs an open rebellion every few years. Surprising there has not been a lot more unrest. 30 million suddenly unemployed in the USA (and how many in the world?) hope folk get outraged at economic system that throws them onto the scrap heap mere weeks after a crisis. If it’s so weak then we need a better system!
