Question – Every day for more than a century, the New York Times masthead has proudly proclaimed, “All the News
Fit to Print,” reminding readers, sources, advertisers, and employees of the news organization’s
commitment to impartiality, balance, and fairness. In early June, 2020, editorial page editor James
Bennett was forced to resign, and deputy editorial page editor Jim Dao was reassigned to the
newsroom, leaving some people to wonder if all opinions were fit to print.
An opinion piece written by Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas), published in the June 3 issue of the
Times, had sparked the controversy leading to Bennett’s resignation. Cotton expressed his view that the
US military should be deployed to quiet the civil unrest in the country at that time. Protesters were
demanding federal and state response to the newest wave of police killings of black men. Cotton
accused radicals, rioters, and Antifa for promoting anarchy among the Black Lives Matter protesters.
