Op-ed was published in The Times’ opinion section, but employees from both the opinion and the separate newsroom worked opposed to the public.
The parade Times journalists tweeted a screenshot showing the title of Cotton’s “Send In the Troops”: “Running it jeopardizes Black @NYTimes staff.”
New York Times Magazine staff writers Jenna Wortham and Taffy Brodesser-Akner and the newspaper’s senior editor, Kwame Opam, were among the journalists who did this. National political reporter Astead W. Herndon tweeted his support for “colleagues and especially blacks”.
However, “Times Opinion owes our readers to be counter-argument, especially by people in a policy-setting position.” Said.
“We understand that many readers find Senator Cotton’s argument painful or even dangerous.” “We believe this is a reason why it requires public scrutiny and discussion,” he added.
Cotton’s op-ed argued that “local law enforcement agencies in some cities should be supported desperately” and that the military is “ready” to help.
Op-ed suggested that the Uprising Act come into force, arguing that deploying the U.S. army to American cities does not mean “martial law.”
During the day, Times employees rebelled publicly.
“I have to say that I disagree with every word Tom Cotton chooses and does not reflect my values,” writes Charlie Warzel, in The Times’ opinion section.
“My God,” technology reporter Mike Isaac tweeted.
“Exactly,” replied technology reporter Cecilia Kang.
Stacy Cowley, a business reporter, tweeted that the piece “caused a lot of controversy” about Slack, an instant messaging application that companies use to allow employees to communicate.
A tech reporter Davey Alba wrote that Cotton’s allegations that Antifa members “infiltrated Floyd’s deaths to protest marches to exploit their anarchic purposes” were refuted in the newspaper.
“Our own newspaper reported that this was false information,” Alba tweeted.
The cotton office spokesman declined to comment and sent CNN back to The Times.
Cotton’s op-ed broadcast on Wednesday is not the first time the opinion section of the criticism has been criticized.

The idea was warm last summer for the actions of columnist Bret Stephens.
