NYT: We Pulled Stephen Miller Interview at WH’s Request

The New York Times pulled a recorded interview with top Trump aide Stephen Miller from its morning podcast after White House officials said they were “not at all comfortable” with the audio recording being broadcast online. On Tuesday’s episode of The Daily, journalist Julie Davis said she spoke with Miller, the architect of the Trump administration’s incendiary family-separation policy at the Mexico border, but did not air the recording of the interview at the White House’s request. Davis said she originally taped the conversation for a deep-dive article on family separations and did not “talk about any sort of alternative uses for the interview.” After White House officials protested, she said the Times elected not to use it and Davis discussed her conversation with Miller on the podcast instead.
