New York Times Chairman and Publisher Arthur Sulzberger
Trump has promised he would consider allowing libel laws against the media so that he and other people who felt they were unjustifiably persecuted by the press could sue news organizations. Trump said, "So when The New York Times writes a hit piece which is a total disgrace or when The Washington Post, which is there for other reasons, writes a hit piece, we can sue them and win money instead of having no chance of winning because they're totally protected.”
