Dean Baquet says he doesn't attend off the record meetings to discuss content because he doesn't think officials should be able to tell him what to publish — When President Donald Trump broke an off-the-record agreement after he met with New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger …
The New York Times Company:
After a Trump tweet, A.G. Sulzberger confirms an off the record meeting on July 20, says he told Trump that labeling press an enemy of the people is dangerous — Earlier this month, A.G. received a request from the White House to meet with President Trump.

@narratedpotus: The President of the United States breaks an agreement with the publisher of the New York Times to hold an off-the-record meeting.
Jesse Pesta / @jessepesta: He told the president that he is “undermining the democratic ideals of our nation.” Two different takes on reality here. I wonder* which is accurate? https://www.nytco.com/... *No I don't pic.twitter.com/ujaCm5Rpqp
Zeddy / @zeddary: Media: man it was really stupid for Trump to have a one-on-one meeting with Putin and then let Putin divulge all the supposed details in bad faith. NYT Publisher: Hey I just got an idea.
John McQuaid / @johnmcquaid: It's not like Trump is a normal president who might offer some unvarnished insights into his thinking on big issues in an off-the-record meeting. He has no such insights, and will only use the off-the-record part against you.
Zack Whittaker / @zackwhittaker: it's a difficult one. the meeting and its contents were off the record. Trump broke that agreement by disclosing the meeting happened. I think A.G. is still trying to abide by the “contents” rule — even though the meeting was disclosed. off the record isn't always simple.
Brian Stelter / @brianstelter: NYT publisher A.G. Sulzberger says he challenged Trump about “his labeling journalists ‘the enemy of the people.’ I warned that this inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence.” http://twitter.com/...
Trip Gabriel / @tripgabriel: 1. The publisher of the NYT privately tells Trump his calling journalists ‘enemies of the people’ exposes them to violence, particularly abroad,. 2. Trump breaks otr agreement & repeats the phrase in a tweet, using passive voice to duck his own role in reviving a Nazi-era charge http://twitter.com/...
Andy Shain / @andyshain: Reporting news you dislike is not “fake news” and does not make the media “the enemy of the people” http://twitter.com/...
Renato Mariotti / @renato_mariotti: The publisher of the New York Times met with Trump to explain the dangers of his attacks on the free press. Trump's response was to renew his attacks.

Ken Olin / @kenolin1: Because Donald Trump is incapable of accurately recounting events that do not promote his outsized ego and would have us all live in a universe devoid of complexity and truth - it's vital we keep a narrative of reality alive. http://www.nytco.com/...
Kenneth P. Vogel / @kenvogel: Read @AGSNYT's (very different) recollection of this meeting, in which he says he warned TRUMP that his attacks on the media as the “enemy of the people” were putting lives at risk & undermining America's democratic ideals: http://www.nytco.com/... http://twitter.com/...

And completely fails to address the concern that NYT publisher raised with him. Not for the first time ... words fail me. http://twitter.com/...
