The New York Times is under fire for the second day in a row over its coverage of transgender people – now for its response to the criticism of its coverage of transgender people, and also its warning to its own journalists made by the Old Gray Lady’s executive editor.On Wednesday, two very separate, yet damning letters were sent to The Times.

One, an open letter signed by nearly 200 current and former Times contributors, criticized the paper’s coverage of transgender people.

It was not only fact-based and chock-full of examples, but it also took a deep dive into The Times’ biased history of poor reporting on LGBTQ people overall.The second open letter came from 100 or more LGBTQ organizations and leaders, including GLAAD and HRC, also criticizing the paper’s coverage of transgender people.

While there were some similarities to both letters, they were clearly unrelated and from very different groups.READ MORE: Attorney Behind Texas Vigilante Abortion Ban Drafting Similar Book Ban Bill to Sue Librarians: ReportWednesday afternoon, The Times sent a statement to several publications that had reported on one or both letters.
