Brit Hume has question for New York Times’ new publisher that brilliantly exposes lie of ‘paper of record’

Brit Hume

Those who don’t follow Brit Hume on Twitter are missing out on some real gems of wisdom from the Fox News senior political analyst.

In his latest offering, Hume brilliantly exposed a lie from The New York Times’ new publisher, A.G. Sulzberger.

In what was billed as “A Note From Our New Publisher,” Sulzberger noted that it was his vision “to invite intelligent discussion from all shades of opinion.”

But Hume smacked that offering back like Dikembe Mutombo swatted jump shots by calling out the “paper of record.”

“Note the renewed commitment to ‘all shades of opinion.’ This from the new leader of a paper with not a single columnist who supports the President,” Hume tweeted. “Will this publisher change that?”

Speaking of President Trump, he offered his congratulations to Sulzberger on social media, saying it may be The Times’ last chance “to fulfill the vision” of its founder.

A social media user questioned Hume’s choice of words, prompting him to clarify the point he was making did not apply to reporters:

Here’s a sampling of other responses from Twitter, including one social media user who agreed with Trump that this could be a pivotal moment for the media:
