Targeted: The New York Times
A New York Times writer wrote a piece entitled, 'Watching 'Fox & Friends', Trump Sees a Two-Way Mirror'. In this article, the author says: "Suddenly, for no other reason than its No. 1 fan, it is the most powerful TV show in America". His No.1 fan is in reference to President Trump. Someone later took at a full page ad in the NYT using the partial quote "...the most powerful TV show in America." citing 'The New York Times', advertising for the Fox show. Fox & Friends covered this on their program, and then Trump tweeted about it.
