President-elect Donald Trump cancelled today's meeting with the New York Times (NYSE: NYT). Trump tweeted, "I cancelled today's meeting with the failing @nytimes when the terms and conditions of the meeting were changed at the last moment. Not nice."

In a follow up tweet, Mr. Trump said, "Perhaps a new meeting will be set up with the @nytimes. In the meantime they continue to cover me inaccurately and with a nasty tone!"

In a statement on the cancellation, the New York Times said they didn't 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."
