As noted in a Washington Post item entitled "New York Times staffer tweets out op-ed critical of Trump, faces anti-Semitic avalanche" by Erik Wemple, deputy Washington editor Jonathan Weisman of The New York Times and other Jewish journalists critical of Donald Trump are being overwhelmed with anti-Semitic tweets.
I am horrified by the Trump candidacy; however, I think it is also worth observing how The New York Times has tolerated anti-Semitism from the left. You might want to have a look at the following JG Caesarea blog entries (all can be found in the blog archive under the label "anti-Semitism":
