Tucker Carlson Scolds NY Times for Cheering France Has No Fox News

May 10th, 2017 7:43 AM
On Monday night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson called out The New York Times for cheering how the French media ignored leaked emails from French presidential contender Emmanuel Macron. On Tuesday, the Times published a Rachel Donadio article headlined "Why a Hacking Attack Failed to Sway the French Vote for President." Donadio (or her Times editors) felt compelled to offer joy and relief that…

NYT, Still Fighting Brexit, Crams Paper With Art Snobs and 'Racism'

July 10th, 2016 4:42 PM
Wednesday’s New York Times was crammed with condescension and hostility toward racist Brexit voters. Rachel Donadio had previously “credited” “a campaign of open xenophobia” for the victory of the Leave choice. On Wednesday she peppered some left-wing British in writing and theatre fields with loaded questions, and they delivered the artists’ predictable low opinions of their fellow citizen-…

NYT Brexit-Bashing Continues With Still More ‘Xenophobia’

June 26th, 2016 12:05 PM
Some of the endless Brexit-result bashing from the New York Times on Saturday got personal. In her “reporter’s notebook," European culture correspondent Rachel Donadio didn’t hide her contempt for the “open xenophobia” and evident ignorance of the Leave side: "This week, it wasn’t Greece that was kicked out. It was Britain that voted to leave, after a campaign of open xenophobia." Also, White…

New York Times Greets New Pope With Abortion, Gay Marriage, and the 'D

March 14th, 2013 3:20 PM
Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio of Buenos Aires is now Pope Francis, and Thursday's New York Times front-page "Man In the News" profile by Emily Schmall and Larry Rohter, "A Conservative With a Common Touch," opened respectfully. But after a dash of local color and historical context, the Times quickly mounted its old hobby horse: the Church's positions on liberal issues like abortion and gay marriage…

New York Times Ushers Pope Benedict Out Under Clouds of 'Scandal and I

March 1st, 2013 2:56 PM
Pope Benedict XVI served his final day as pontiff on Thursday, and the New York Times' Rome bureau chief Rachel Donadio sent him on his way from Vatican City under a dark cloud: "As Pope Departs, Discord Remains at Vatican." As the sun set on Rome and on his turbulent eight-year papacy, Pope Benedict XVI, a shy theologian who never seemed entirely at home in the limelight, was whisked by…

NYTimes: 'God's Rottweiler' Pope Benedict Delivers 'Stern...Homily,' R

April 6th, 2012 1:16 PM
On Good Friday, New York Times Rome bureau chief Rachel Donadio emphasized the Pope's "stern Holy Thursday homily" and used a harsh nickname for him in the lead to her Friday story, "Pope Rebukes Priests Who Advocate Ordaining Women and Ending Celibacy," and threw in extraneous unflattering details about "a Vatican hierarchy in disarray."

As Pope Draws Crowds in Cuba, NYT Suddenly Remembers Big Crowds Are Pr

March 27th, 2012 3:54 PM
The New York Times coverage of the Pope's trip to the dictatorship of Cuba has a strange, cheap-shot emphasis on how the Cuban people are coerced to attend such rallies, an authoritarian power play, but one the paper rarely if ever bothers to address during Cuban May Day rallies held in celebration of communism. A nytimes.com search suggests the Times has never previously used the words "…

The New York Times Lumps the Catholic Church with the Mafia and the Mu

February 4th, 2011 7:06 AM
 The New York Times is not known for delicate restraint in its treatment of the Catholic Church. Executive editor Bill Keller (despite somehow marrying his second wife in the Church) trashed Pope John Paul the Great in 2002: "One paradox of the Polish pope is that while he is rightly revered for helping bring down the godless Communists, he has replicated something very like the old Communist…
