    Editor: NY Times not 'sitting on a news story' with Trump tapes


    By Eddie Scarry (@eScarry) • 3/2/16 10:25 AM


    New York Times opinion page editor Andrew Rosenthal insisted Wednesday that his newspaper is not covering up a big story by refusing to release an off-the-record portion of its interview with Donald Trump.
    In a Wednesday blog post, Rosenthal told Times public editor Margaret Sullivan that portions of the meeting were meant to be "off the record. But he acknowledged that a recording of the board's talk with Trump was shared with other reporters at the Times, which may have resulted in some details being leaked to the public that were intended to be kept private.
    He said, however, that the Times is not covering up any information related to the presidential campaign that would be crucial to the public's knowledge.
    "These [editorial board] sessions are not about news gathering for stories," Rosenthal said.
    Some people, including Trump's rivals for the Republican presidential nomination Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, have called on the Times to release the recordings, which reportedly may demonstrate Trump professing "flexibility" on his hardline immigration policy proposals.
    Rosenthal has said he would only make the recordings public if Trump asked the paper to release them.

    "It's not as if we are sitting on a news story here, or holding something back from publication," Rosenthal said.

    Appearing Monday on Fox News, Trump himself acknowledged that at least some parts of his meeting with the Times was off the record. "We had a board meeting, it was off the record, all of a sudden they leak it, it's all over the place," he said. He also said as president, he would be willing to negotiate on immigration policy, of which his trademark policy is to "build a wall" on the Southern border.

    "Things are negotiable, I'll be honest with you," he said. "You know, I'll make the wall two feet shorter or something. I mean, everything's negotiate. Building it? Not negotiable."

    Yesterday, Rubio and Cruz were all over the social media online airwaves accusing Trump of telling the NYT he was flexible on deporting the illegals.

    Now NYT board says there is nothing major to that story and last night at the winners press conference Trump responded to the suggestion illegals could stay with "absolutely not!"

    Cruz: Trump Can’t be ‘Champion of U.S. Workers’ After Exploiting Immigration Laws

    HOUSTON, Texas — Republican presidential candidate and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) greeted 1,200 excited followers in his hometown and told them, “Donald Trump does not get to exploit the immigration laws and take advantage of American workers, and then pretend he is going to be a champion for American workers.”

    “For too many years, we have seen deal-makers in Washington, that cut deals that benefit big business, benefit the special interests, and leave in the dark, the working men and women in this country.” Cruz said on the eve of the Super Tuesday primary in Texas. “You know, no issue captures that more powerfully than immigration.”

    The Texas senator explained, “Immigration is a law enforcement matter, immigration is a national security matter, but immigration at its heart is an economic matter.”

    He continued, “When you allow 12 million people to come into this country illegally, it takes away jobs from millions of Americans, from millions of legal immigrants, and drives down wages for everyone.”

    He said “the unfortunate truth” is “both parties are responsible.” He said, “Democrats support illegal immigration because they think they can get votes.” Cruz added, “You know there is a new politically correct term for ‘illegal immigrant.’ It’s called ‘undocumented Democrats.'”

    “The unfortunate truth is that an awful lot of establishment Republicans in Washington, also support illegal immigration because Wall Street and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and big business, view it as cheap labor. Drive down the wages, all the better,” he said.

    Cruz reminded the crowd of something they already understood, that in a Republican primary, every candidate must say they oppose illegal immigration. He invoked laughter when he said, “politicians sometimes say one thing and do something else.”

    He continued, “If you want to know where anyone stands on illegal immigration, the question to ask is in 2013 when we had the battle over amnesty, where did you stand?” Cruz said that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)
    decided to stand with Barack Obama, Harry Reed and Chuck Schumer and lead the fight to pass the Gang of Eight amnesty bill.Cruz said he “made a very, very, different decision to stand with millions of working men and women across this country and lead the fight to defeat amnesty.”

    He quipped, “I am told that Donald Trump talks a fair amount about immigration.” He said “That leads to the natural question, in 2013, in the amnesty battle, where was Donald?” A few in the crowd yelled – “Hiring illegals.” Cruz laughed and added, Trump was funding the Gang of Eight.

    Cruz told his supporters gathered at Houston Baptist University that the New York businessman gave over $50,000 collectively to five of the eight senators who were part of the Gang of Eight.

    “You don’t get to fund open-border Democrats for four decades, and then suddenly when you run for president, discover and announce that you are for securing the border. It doesn’t work that way,” Cruz said.

    He said that during the last presidential debate Americans learned that a $1 million judgment had been assessed against Trump for hiring illegal immigrants. Cruz said that Trump answered that this occurred a long time ago. Cruz asked. “What about last week?”

    Cruz related that the news broke recently that Trump brought in hundreds of foreign workers to work at his hotel in Florida. Cruz said Trump went on television and said Americans aren’t qualified and aren’t willing to work as waiters and waitresses. He asked those in the audience to raise their hands if they had every worked as a waiter or waitress.

    Cruz said that of the 300 Americans that applied for jobs at Trump’s hotel, the presidential candidate hired only 17 Americans. The Texas senator said he understands that foreign workers work for much lower wages, and they “are held captive” because they can’t go work for a competitor, and that this is good for “big business.”

    Cruz charged, “Donald Trump does not get to exploit the immigration laws and take advantage of American workers, and then pretend he is going to be a champion for American workers.”

    He also told the pachyderms gathered that on Monday, the news broke that the New York Times editorial board has a secret tape of an interview they conducted earlier this year with Trump.

    Cruz urged as to Trump, “You know all of that immigration stuff, you know that wall I said I am going to build. I don’t mean any of it. I don’t intend to do any of it. None of it is true.” Cruz said the Times said they could not release the tape because Trump’s interview contained off-the-record conversations.

    Cruz said, “Donald, I call on you now, allow the Times to release the tape!” The freshman senator from Texas said that voters deserve to know what Trump told the Times before they vote.

    Cruz was in Houston with Texas Governor Greg Abbott, former Texas Governor Rick Perry, Louie Gohmert, and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick. All four Texans have endorsed him. Asreported by Breitbart Texas, Cruz spent his last day before the election with the men traveling the state of Texas.

    That was a defining moment last night. I am glad you saw it too and reiterated it here as well.
