NY Times Fact Checks Trump After Diss Tweet

President-elect Donald Trump is continuing his battle with one of the country’s biggest news outlets, the New York Times. On Sunday morning, Trump tweeted: “Wow, the New York Times is losing thousands of subscribers because of their very poor and highly inaccurate coverage of the ‘Trump phenomena.'” Trump did not cite any evidence to back up his claim. And the Times flatly says it is not true.
The newspaper crunched the numbers on Sunday morning and found that it has gained a lot more subscribers than it has lost since Election Day. Then it responded to Trump, naturally, on Twitter. The Times tweeted Sunday, “Fact: surge in new subscriptions, print & digital, with trends, stops & starts, 4 times better than normal.” Sunday’s tweetstorm seems to run counter what Trump told CBS in a “60 Minutes interview. He told Leslie Stahl he credited Twitter for helping him win the election–but said he would be more “restrained” now.
