The New York Times is an American daily newspaper published in New York City and distributed internationally. The largest metropolitan newspaper in the United States, "The Gray Lady"—named for its staid appearance and style—is regarded as a national newspaper of record.
New York Times in The Man With the Iron HeartEdit
Initially, The New York Times gave little credence to the opponents of the Truman Administration, but as Diana McGraw and her Mothers Against the Madness in Germany gained support in the country, the Times soon gave the movement more credence. In 1947, the Times sent a reporter to cover the troops returning to New York City, and get a quote from McGraw, who was present to welcome them.
Jerry Duncan read the Times first thing every morning.
New York Times in "News From the Front"Edit
The New York Times was one of many newspapers mercilessly critical of American President Franklin D. Roosevelt's handling of World War II, reminding the public of the president's 1940 campaign promise that "your boys are not going to be sent into any foreign wars." The Times also reported on the closing of The New Yorker and broke a story about the devices the United States used to spy on Germany and Japan.
