If the folks at the New York Times are capable of being embarrassed over their errors, the one President Donald Trump decisively exposed Friday would lead to a lot of red faces at the Old Gray Lady.

NYT Magazine’s Hack Attack on Rep. Nunes: Catnip for the Angry Left
April 29th, 2018 5:41 PM
The New York Times Sunday magazine devoted 5,000 words to a hostile profile of Rep. Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who is infuriating liberals by blocking the narrative of Russia-Trump “collusion” during Campaign 2016.
