New York Times Insists Non-Citizens Commit Less Crime Than Citizens

December 23rd, 2017 8:00 AM
On Thursday, Vivian Yee at the New York Times repeated the tired and unproven claim that "a large body of research has suggested that immigrants are no more likely, and often less likely, to commit serious crimes than native-born Americans." Though the article had plenty of links, there was no link to anything in that alleged "large body of research." Though Donald Trump…

Tuesday’s New York Times tried to surround the story of illegal immigrants with a full-page spread, “The Reality of Illegal Immigrants Who Live in the United States,” from reporters Vivian Yee, Kenan Davis, and Jugal Patel.

New York Times reporter Vivian Yee made the front page with the paper’s favorite liberal hobbyhorse, illegal immigration, or as the Times now puts it, “undocumented.” It's the issue the paper is most aggressively liberal on, and the fearful tone of the piece is captured in the headline, which skips journalistic objectivity in favor of emotionalism: “Migrants Hide,…

NYT's Yee Makes Excuses for Hate-Crime Hoaxers Charged With Assault

March 2nd, 2016 7:01 PM
Well, at least they covered it. That’s the best that can be said about the New York Times story by Vivian Yee on the front of Wednesday’s Metro section about a racial hate-crime hoax at the University of Albany.

September 23rd, 2015 9:42 AM

The show had not attracted so many people before, City Center staff…
