The New York Times (NYSE: NYT) issued a statement after President-elect Donald Trump said today's meeting with the paper was cancelled. The Times said they did not change the ground rules.

"We were unaware that the meeting was cancelled until we saw the President Elect's tweet this morning. We did not change the ground rules at all and made no attempt to. They tried to yesterday - asking for only a private meting and no on-the-record segment, which we refused to agree to. In the end, we concluded with the team that we would go back to the original plan of a small off the record session and a larger on the record session with reporters and columnists."
