Here is a last chance for the Times to fulfill the vision of its Founder, Adolph Ochs, 'to give the news impartially, without fear or FAVOR, regardless of party, sect, or interests involved, '" Trump tweeted. They are all bad. He added that the victor of such an award should get a "fake news trophy".
