Broadway Ticket Buyers and The John Gore Organization Donate $1 Million To BC/EFA

When theaters across the country shut down in March, countless theater fans who had previously purchased tickets to Broadway and national touring shows suddenly had their plans canceled. In an act of unparalleled generosity, Broadway Across America gave purchasers the option to donate the value of their unused tickets to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. The John Gore Organization this week added to their customers’ goodwill, bringing the total donation to Broadway Cares to an astounding $1 million.

“We are overwhelmingly grateful for the staggering generosity of our ticket buyers,” said John Gore, owner and CEO of the John Gore Organization. “It is wonderful to see thousands of individuals making the choice to support those in need.”

“When we launched this initiative, we understood we had a unique opportunity to help, but we had no idea how many people would contribute their tickets and join in our efforts to help the

Trump campaign official tweets doctored ‘President Gore’ headline

The Trump campaign communications director tweeted an image of a headline declaring Al Gore the election winner in 2000. The newspaper said it was doctored.

A Washington, D.C., newspaper had to correct a Trump campaign official who tweeted out an image that showed the paper with a 20-year-old headline that read “President Gore,” a day after major news outlets determined President-elect Joe Biden would defeat President Donald Trump. The paper said the headline never existed.

Tim Murtaugh, the campaign’s communications director, tweeted the image, purportedly from The Washington Times, with the bold headline and a photo of former Vice President Al Gore taking the oath of office. 

“Greetings staff @TeamTrump HQ this morning, a reminder that the media doesn’t select the president,” Murtaugh tweeted, and later deleted. It included an image of a Washington Times paper dated Nov. 8, 2020. He also showed the paper plastered across the walls

Quick Take

President Donald Trump’s campaign pushed an altered image of a Washington Times front page to cast doubt on the 2020 election calls made by news outlets. The newspaper never ran the purported front page, declaring Al Gore the winner of the 2000 election.

Full Story

Numerous news outlets called the 2020 election for former Vice President Joe Biden on Nov. 7 after their projections showed that he had locked in more than the required 270 electoral votes to win the presidency.

But President Donald Trump has refused to concede, and his campaign is pursuing legal challenges to the results. In the meantime, campaign officials have been saying that the media’s call on the race should not be trusted.

The day after Biden declared victory, a Trump campaign official shared a purported front page of the Washington Times on social media to suggest that

Photo of newspaper was edited to add ‘President Gore’ headline

CLAIM: Photo shows the front page of The Washington Times on Nov. 8, 2000, with the prominent headline “President Gore″ and a photo of that year’s Democratic presidential candidate, Al Gore. Since Gore ultimately lost the election to George W. Bush, the image shows that the newspaper initially reported the election results incorrectly.

AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. This altered image has been circulating on the internet for at least 10 years. The Washington Times never ran a “President Gore” headline, it confirmed on Twitter on Sunday.

THE FACTS: One day after The Associated Press and other media outlets called the presidential election for Joe Biden, conservative social media users were sharing a doctored image of a decades-old newspaper to add fuel to their claim that the media can get race calls wrong.

Tim Murtaugh, communications director for President Donald Trump’s campaign, posted the fake image on Twitter on Sunday morning.

On Sunday, Trump campaign director of communications Tim Murtaugh tweeted an image that purported to be taken at campaign headquarters in Virginia of multiple front pages from the Washington Times with the headline “President Gore,” a reference to the contested 2000 presidential election.

“Greeting staff at @TeamTrump HQ this morning, a reminder that the media doesn’t select the President,” Murtaugh wrote, referencing the world’s media outlets following the lead of state vote counters to declare Biden the winner of the election.

Trump’s campaign posted a ‘President Gore’ headline to question the election. The image was fake.

Trump campaign staffers this weekend found the refrigerator door and kitchen cabinets in their Arlington headquarters plastered with an evocative front page. The Washington Time times edition dated Nov. 8, 2000 declared “PRESIDENT GORE,” above an image of former vice president Al Gore.

The message was clear, Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh said in a since-deleted tweet on Sunday morning.

“Greeting staff @TeamTrumpHQ this morning, a reminder that the media doesn’t select the president,” he tweeted, echoing Trump’s unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud and refusal to accept President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

But the front page was faked. And the Times, a conservative publication, called out Murtaugh on it.

“Those photos have been doctored. The Washington Times never ran a ‘President Gore’ headline,”
