Smug NYT Reporters Use Hurricanes to Bash Texans, Floridians, and GOP

September 19th, 2017 3:45 PM
The New York Times’ most activist environmental reporter Justin Gillis is leaving the paper, but not before one last Cassandra-style wail on the front of the Science section keyed to the recent major hurricanes that have hit the South: “The Unpredictable Human Factor.” Gillis, who has a knack for getting scary yet inaccurate stories on the paper’s front page, employed a condescending “told you so…

NYT Again Blames Anti-Gay GOP, Not Radical Islam, for Orlando Massacre

June 16th, 2016 11:46 AM
The post-Orlando demonizing of the GOP, not radical Islam, as dangerous anti-gay ideologues continued in Thursday’s New York Times, as Jeremy Peters and Lizette Alvarez demonstrated in “A Death Toll Fails to Narrow a Chasm on Gay Rights.” Peters and Alvarez seemed eager to equate lack of support for gay marriage to mass murder of gays: "And the murder of 49 people in an Orlando gay club has, in…

NYT: ‘Hard-Right’ GOP Foreign Policy Dummies ‘Dwell Darkly’

December 18th, 2015 8:15 AM
Thursday’s New York Times was particularly dense with bias against the "hard-right" and "far-right" Republican Party, starting on the front page, where a story about Latino candidates Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio turned into a criticism of GOP immigration policy, and reaching the back page, with an editorial hitting the Republican Party for its "Appalling Silence on Gun Control" (the candidates "…

NYT Laments 'Damaging Stereotypes' of Vets, Skips Own Notorious Smear

February 6th, 2015 2:46 PM
A New York Times military correspondent filed a useful story on the problem of military veterans being stereotyped as violent and troubled on movies and TV. But what about when the Times was guilty of doing the same thing on its Sunday front page, smearing veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan as killers on "a cross-country trail of death and heartbreak"?

NY Times Approves of Obama's Cuban 'Audacity' vs 'Hard-Line' Opponents

December 19th, 2014 3:20 AM
Surprising news that President Obama would normalize relations with Cuba by establishing full diplomatic relations while easing restrictions excited reporters and editorial writers at the New York Times, who saw the demise of the "dinosaurs" and "aging...hard-liners" who opposed liberalizing ties to the authoritarian Cuban government.

NYT Frets as GOP States Burden Blacks Based on 'Unfounded' Vote Fraud

March 30th, 2014 10:27 AM
Sunday's New York Times was troubled by attempts by Republican state leaders to impose uniformity in voting rules and predictably made it a racial matter in "New G.O.P. Bid to Limit Voting in Swing States." According to the front-page story, after a Supreme Court ruling last year loosened restrictions, "swing states under Republican control are embracing significant new electoral restrictions…

New York Times Story from Texas Repeatedly Drops the F-Bomb: 'Fetus

January 15th, 2014 5:39 PM
The New York Times spent months debating before deciding not to ban the term “illegal immigrant” entirely (it’s simply discouraged), but the word “fetus” is used without any alarm. At the top of page A-14 on Wednesday is the headline “Suing to End Life Support for Woman and Fetus.” It’s an update on the sad story of Marlise Munoz, who is on life support and whose family wants her and her…

Disgraced Democrat John Edwards, Still Man Without a Party in New York

May 3rd, 2012 1:07 PM
Returning to form, the last two New York Times updates from the Greensboro, N.C. trial of two-time Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, charged with misusing campaign money to cover up an affair, contain zero mentions of Edwards's Democratic affiliation. The word doesn't even appear in either story. On Thursday, Lizette Alvarez covered the testimony from Elizabeth Christina…

NYT: New DNC Head Wasserman Schultz 'Youngest, Smartest, Funniest, Tou

April 25th, 2011 3:02 PM
In Florida, New York Times reporter Lizette Alvarez buttered up Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida (aka Superwoman) the new head the Democratic National Committee, in Monday’s “In a Life Filled With Firsts, One More.” In case there weren’t enough superlatives in that headline, the subhead had another: “Energetic Florida Congresswoman to Be Democrats’ New Leader.” By contrast, in March…

The New York Times vs. Unjust State Spending Cuts: Florida Edition

April 4th, 2011 8:03 AM
The New York Times vs. state spending cuts, take four. Reporter Lizette Alvarez led off Friday’s National section with a story on the plight of unemployed Floridians: “The Jobless See A Lifeline at Risk - Florida Eyes Cut in Benefits.” Alvarez’s story hyped the liberal compassion factor even more than a similar story in Wednesday’s Times, on a move in Michigan that will also trim state…

NY Times Issues Hostile Profile of Conservative Fla. Gov. Rick Scott

March 10th, 2011 9:34 AM
Florida’s new Republican Gov. Rick Scott is moving to cut state bureaucracy, reduce regulation and make the state a more business-friendly environment, and is meeting resistance among the old political guard in Florida. But instead of hailing the governor’s fresh blood and independence (as it had done previously with liberal Republican Gov. Charlie Crist of Florida), the New York Times does its…
