Tom Cotton’s op-ed caused Sen. Michael Bennet’s brother to resign from the New York Times – so we asked him about it

By Matt Connelly

In June of 2020, as America’s cities burned and were terrorized by rioters, Senator Tom Cotton submitted an op-ed to the New York Times titled, “Send in the Troops” urging the mobilization of the National Guard to protect law abiding citizens from violent rioters.  

The radical left was incensed that the New York Times would allow a sitting United States Senator to discuss a major policy issue in the newspaper’s editorial pages and the resulting uproar caused James Bennet to resign from his job as Opinion Editor for the New York Times. 

James Bennet is the brother of current United States Senator Michael Bennet.
