Posted by The American Conservatives on Sunday, August 13, 2020 01:03:18 The New York State Senate has passed a bill that would require any news outlet that prints or broadcasts a book on the presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to include a disclaimer.
The measure passed the Senate on a 27-13 vote, with Democrats joining Republicans to pass the measure.
The bill is intended to protect First Amendment rights by ensuring that any news article about Trump published after he becomes the nominee will include a ” disclaimer that identifies the author, the publisher, the source, and the source’s affiliation with the publisher or the source.”
This is similar to the law that requires the Times to include disclaimers on articles about the 2016 presidential race.
But the legislation does not require the Times, The New Yorker or other news outlets to do so.
“A disclaimer is a requirement of the First Amendment,” Senate Majority Leader Peter Gallego (D-N.Y.) said during the floor debate.
“The Times is not required to do it.
We’re just doing it because it’s a requirement.”
The measure was passed in the Senate by a margin of 19-8.
The Senate is set to consider the bill on Wednesday.
The Times said it will print a full disclaimer that includes a link to the website of the book that it will publish this week.
The legislation also requires any news articles about Trump to use the title “Donald Trump: The Art of the Deal.”
The Times has a long history of publishing controversial material on its website.
The website includes an opinion piece on Trump by Jonathan Allen, who previously worked at the Times as a reporter.
The article, which has a title “The Art of Trump,” claims that Trump is “a master at playing on the fears and anxieties of others to win their trust.”
Trump has long made incendiary remarks about women, Muslims and immigrants.
He has also been accused of sexual harassment and assault.
The Trump administration has said it plans to investigate the claims against him, including any allegations that he engaged in predatory behavior with women.
On Friday, Trump fired a number of staffers over allegations that they had sexual relations with an intern.
In addition, the president also fired former FBI Director James Comey, who was overseeing the probe into the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russia.
“In a presidential election, it’s not about which candidate is the better man, it is about who can best deliver on the promise of America’s promise,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D -N.I.) said on the Senate floor on Friday.
“I am very disappointed in the decision to fire James Comey.
But I’m not disappointed in Donald Trump’s decision to be president of the United States.”
The Trump White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
