December 8th, 2019 7:47 AM
Ever since the surprise referendum result in June 2016, the New York Times and rest of the mainstream press has been virulently anti-Brexit.

NYT Injects Anti-Capitalism, Brexit-Bashing Everywhere: 'Museum Heap'
November 16th, 2019 2:15 PM
The New York Times doesn’t just inject anti-capitalist and anti-conservative positions into its “news” coverage, but uses every section to make its arguments, concealed under the rubrics of Arts or Style.
