#CancelNYT trends on Twitter after newspaper ignores whistleblower protection laws

Amid the partisan rhetoric of this latest push to derail the Trump presidency, Americans have seemingly forgotten The Golden Rule:  Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Politics in America have turned toxic in recent months, due in no small part to the division created by the mainstream media.  By splitting the nation up into Team A and Team B, the infotainment industry can more easily exploit our emotions for financial gain, gluing us to our television sets with predicable partisan rhetoric.

What we’ve forgotten is that we are all American, and if this were occurring to any other President, or anyone else for that matter, we might be fairly livid.

So when a whistleblower makes a complaint as sensitive as the one made public this week, it is imperative, no matter what side of the aisle that we find ourselves on, that they are given the full protection of the law in this matter.  To do otherwise would severely alter the willingness to whistleblowers to come forward in the future, perhaps even under contrary political circumstances.

The once-venerable New York Times does not seem to understand this concept, and his facing severe criticism for its choice to publish possible details regarding the whistleblower’s identity.

The Washington Post made the most of the situation:

As of this writing, there has been no official apology by the New York Times.
