The New York Times is feeling the heat as #CancelNYT hashtag trends on Twitter after the newspaper doxes the intelligence whistleblower by disclosing his/her job.
The NY Times is dealing with a deluge of cancellations over its article about the whistleblower’s position. This came shortly after Donald Trump hinted that the whistleblower and the person who gave him or her the information should be dealt with as in the old days — execution.
Did the @nytimes really just dox the whistleblower who courageously risked life & career to reveal what they learned to the American people?
If so, it pains to say it's time to #CancelNYT & Executive Editor Dean Baquet.
A shameful, unforgivable, tarnishing error in judgment. https://t.co/w6iwCZ61v3

Trying to expose the identity of a whistleblower should be enough for every sane person to finally #CancelNYT. I did a long while ago, but today crossed a dark threshold.

Raise your hand if you think the New York Times must be banned from journalism and news reporting for their gross violation of the Whistleblower Act.#CancelNYT

Our country’s heroes are worth far more than clicks and views. Doxxing the whistleblower endangers the individual’s life, which is especially heinous considering the whistleblower went through proper government channels. The NYT protects Trump sources better than this. #CancelNYT

If you have a subscription to the NY Times, you should cancel it right now. #CancelNYT

I just canceled my subscription to @nytimes due to a pattern of questionable editorial decisions, and the final straw, for me, of publishing details about the whistleblower that may allow the WH to identify him/her.
And I made sure they knew WHY I canceled. #CancelNYT
