The fact several media and political figures were able to convince the paper to change its headline after the first edition exposes the collective outrage as a “mob,” Hemingway claimed Tuesday on “Special Report.”

A headline about Trump’s remarks on the recent mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton drew condemnation online — including from some Democratic presidential candidates — and was subsequently changed late Monday. The newspaper summarized Trump’s comments, in which he denounced hate and white supremacy, with the headline “Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism” on the front page of its first edition.
In response, several Democrats blasted the newspaper.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., called the headline a: “reminder of how white supremacy is aided by — and often relies upon — the cowardice of mainstream institutions.”
