Marco Rubio on Monday accused the New York Times of reporting the “Castro regime’s propaganda” on him by publishing a story highlighting negative opinions of the GOP presidential candidate held by some Cubans.
The 2016 Republican field is young and racially diverse, especially compared to the Democratic side, which is comprised almost exclusively of elderly whites. Liberals find this upsetting, and have vented their anger by questioning the racial authenticity of GOP minority candidates.
In the New York Times’ latest effort to take down Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and his efforts in running for president, the paper dug through his financial records.
A story in Tuesday’s New York Times probing Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R., Fla) “struggles with finances” during his career quotes a financial expert critical of Rubio who donated money to President Obama.
The New York Times report last week on Marco Rubio and his wife’s multiple traffic citations had the fingerprints of liberal opposition research firm American Bridge all over it, but the paper maintains that multiple reporters came across the traffic citations independently “while looking into something else.”
Last year, though, in a story on the cover of its Sunday paper on Charles and David Koch, New York Times reporter Nicholas Confessore disclosed that “the Times was alerted to the [Koch] archive by American Bridge, a liberal political organization that has been critical of the Kochs.”
