FedEx CEO Challenges New York Times Publisher to Debate Fake News Story About His Company

The FedEx CEO has had enough of the Fake News New York Times. He’s in fact challenged them to a debate on an article where they literally fabricated information about his company.

The CEO of FedEx challenged The New York Times’ publisher A.G. Sulzberger to a debate after the paper ran a story titled “How FedEx Cut Its Tax Bill to $0” on Sunday.

“I hereby challenge A.G. Sulzberger, publisher of the New York Times and the business section editor to a public debate in Washington, DC with me and the FedEx corporate vice president of tax,” FedEx CEO Frederick Smith said in a statement Sunday.

“The focus of the debate should be federal tax policy and the relative societal benefits of business investments and the enormous intended benefits to the United States economy, especially lower and middle class wage earners,” Smith said.

Times spokeswoman Danielle Rhoades Ha told FOX Business that Smith’s invitation to Sulzberger is “clearly a stunt and an effort to distract from the findings of our story.”

The Times is “confident in the accuracy of our reporting” and “FedEx’s colorful response does not actually challenge a single fact in our story,” Ha said.
