NYT Enthuses Over ‘Charismatic...Democrat in Combat Boots’

July 19th, 2018 9:21 AM
New York Times reporter Trip Gabriel was clearly smitten with Richard Ojeda, a Democratic congressional candidate in West Virginia, who rose out of the Times-supported teachers strikes in that state. The gushing headline matched the story’s enthusiasm: “How to Flip Coal Country? Ask the Democrat in Combat Boots.” Gabriel was busy arranging flattering vignettes for the Democratic…

NYT: Divisive Republican Spells GOP Doom; Dem Abuser Earns Redemption

June 14th, 2018 9:11 PM
When do controversial candidates risk hurting the party as a whole? Only when they’re Republicans. That’s the takeaway from The New York Times's Thursday coverage of primary races for the House and Senate. A Republican gave an all-too-accurate statement about the media would cover Republican Corey Stewart going forward: “Every candidate will be asked if they support Stewart…

NYT Works Its Ossoff Pushing Georgia Democrat in Special Election

April 7th, 2017 3:33 PM

The Democrats’ mid-term election hope, the man who may turn the Trumpian tide, is Jon Ossoff, a young progressive candidate for the Georgia congressional seat vacated by Tom Price. Ossoff hopes to triumph in the open primary in Georgia’s congressional district to be held April 18, and he has the whole of the New York Times reporting staff solidly behind him. On Wednesday, Trip Gabriel and…

NYT Celebrates First Lady-Hillary Embrace, Hails GOP Women for Clinton

October 29th, 2016 9:13 AM
It was the “I Am Woman” edition of Friday’s New York Times. Reporter Julie Hirschfeld Davis celebrated Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton’s embrace at a rally in North Carolina: “Clinton Basks in the First Lady’s Soaring Popularity on the Campaign Trail.” On the same page, reporter Trip Gabriel hailed the group Republican Women for Hillary.

NYT Hypocritically Dismisses Vote Rigging Concerns in Anti-Trump Storm

October 19th, 2016 3:14 PM
On the eve of the final presidential debate, Wednesday’s New York Times went after Donald Trump cover to cover, with attempts to shame the Republican nominee and a cavalier dismissal of his allegations of election rigging as racist and paranoid, though the Times was quite amenable to Democratic conspiracy theories about Bush stealing the 2004 election. Wednesday’s off-lead story by…

Tears at NY Times: Obama’s Imperial Immigration Act Fails at SCOTUS

June 24th, 2016 10:19 PM
Immigration is the issue where the New York Times' liberal slant is most obvious, and Friday's edition did not fail to provide it. The Supreme Court effectively doomed President Obama’s executive actions in 2014 to unilaterally shield some five million illegal immigrants from deportation, and the New York Times' front-page “news analysis," “Lines Drawn for…

NYT Shills for Hill on Front, Plays Everyone-Does-It Defense on Email

May 11th, 2016 8:14 PM
Hillary Clinton’s road to the Democratic nomination may be strewn with stones like Bernie Sanders, who won the West Virginia primary Tuesday night. But Clinton can always count on rock-solid support from her base at the New York Times. On Wednesday’s front page, reporter Steven Lee Myers mounted an “everyone-does-it” defense of Hillary in her ongoing controversy over…

NYT Lectures Indiana Rubes on Transgender, Buries CA Anti-Trump Riots

April 30th, 2016 5:17 PM
Uh oh. Ted Cruz is really in trouble with the New York Times now, after attacking Donald Trump for saying people should be able to use the restroom of whatever gender they now identify with. On the trail in Indiana, reporter Trip Gabriel took time out of his packed schedule to deliver a condescending lecture to the ignorant locals about transgenders in “Cruz, in Indiana, Attacks Trump for…

NYT: 'Angry...Seething...Almost Apocalyptic' GOP Raises 'Islamophobia'

December 6th, 2015 11:18 AM
The front page of Saturday's New York Times, next to the paper's already infamous front-page gun-control editorial, claimed that "Shootings in California Reshape the Campaigns." The language used by reporters Michael Barbaro and Trip Gabriel, was quite revealing. See how the Republican presidential candidates "angrily demanded...[rode a] rising tide of bellicosity...…

NYT Makes Trump's Blunt Immigration Talk a Front-Page Problem for GOP

August 19th, 2015 10:39 PM
No issue most exposes the liberal bias of the New York Times more than the matter of illegal immigrants (or as the paper prefers to call them, "undocumented immigrants"). The Times favors generous amnesty, and keeps pushing it both on its news pages and in opinion. A Wednesday Page One story by Trip Gabriel and Julia Preston tried to transform Donald Trump's blunt words on illegals…

NYT's Tale of Two Senators: 'Sloganeering' Paul, Surging Sanders

June 1st, 2015 10:14 PM
Two U.S. Senators -- one Republican, the other a socialist who votes with the Democrats -- are outside candidates for president. Both were profiled in Monday's New York Times, but with quite different results. While Rand Paul's anti-surveillance crusade was caricatured as cynical "sloganeering," socialist Bernie Sanders' modest Iowa crowds (100 people instead of 50?) were…

NYT Page 1 Label Overdose: 'Hard-Right...Right-Wing...Conservatives'

March 26th, 2015 10:36 PM
Political reporter Trip Gabriel's front-page report from the Iowa hustings in Thursday's New York Times was, even by the paper's standards, an amazingly dense thicket of ideologically loaded labeling, with the word "conservative" or "hard-line" or "right wing" cropping up in seemingly every sentence: "Conservatives Are Looking to Unite Behind an…

After Devouring Giuliani for Obama Remark, NYT Targets Scott Walker

February 23rd, 2015 9:49 PM
The New York Times, having feasted for days on remarks made by former New York City Governor Rudy Giuliani at a private dinner for Scott Walker, is now switching targets to Walker himself.

NYT's 'Woe Is Us' Report on Ohio Dems Woefully Short on Fact Checking

September 30th, 2014 8:53 PM
On Sunday, Trip Gabriel at the New York Times had the thankless task of concocting a report which would somehow make Ohio Democrats feel positive about winning at least one statewide office in November instead of getting skunked, which appears pretty likely at this point. That's because the campaign of the Dems' gubernatorial candidate, affectionately known as the Wreck That Is Edward…
