NYT Reported a Bombshell About Obama’s Paris Bombing Response — Then it Vanished  By Kelsey Rupp
"Nothing unusual here"...
The New York Times published, and then deleted, a suggestion by President Obama that he was out-of-touch with Americans’ fear of the threat of terrorist attacks because he doesn’t watch enough cable news.
Published Thursday night, the original text of the article stated:
“In his meeting with the columnists, Mr. Obama indicated that he did not see enough cable television to fully appreciate the anxiety after the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, and made clear that he plans to step up his public arguments. Republicans were telling Americans that he is not doing anything when he is doing a lot, he said.”
The quote was still available and spreading late Thursday night:

As of Friday morning, the admission by the President that he didn’t fully understand Americans’ anxiety because he doesn’t watch enough cable news was gone  . The article lacks an editor’s note indicating the text was edited.
