(Newser) – President Trump has met with the head of one of his favorite whipping boys, per one of a flurry of tweets early Sunday: "Had a very good and interesting meeting at the White House with A.G. Sulzberger, Publisher of the New York Times. Spent much time talking about the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media & how that Fake News has morphed into phrase, 'Enemy of the People.' Sad!" Sulzberger took over from his father on Jan. 1, notes the AP, prompting the president to tweet that he was the paper's "last chance" at impartiality. (Apparently, anything is better than CNN.)
