Shock: NYT’s Dive Into Phony ‘Racist’ Incident at Smith College Questi

February 25th, 2021 10:56 PM

The New York Times has earned a reputation as Woke Central, with a radicalized cohort of young staffers pushing out centrist writers guilty of word-crime or anti-woke inclinations, a list including James Bennet, Bari Weiss, and Donald McNeil. So it was a welcome surprise to see, on Thursday’s front page, a balanced story on yet another racial controversy within another feverishly…

NY Times Purrs on Sunday Under Tranquil Biden: ‘Church Over Covfefe'

February 25th, 2021 8:04 AM

Reporter Katie Rogers’ “White House Memo” in Tuesday’s New York Times, “Washington Basks in a New Event: A Weekend of Tranquility,” revealed the cozy relationship between the press and the new Democratic administration (Biden's bagel run and videogames!) and its unhealthy ongoing obsession with (and contempt of) former president Donald Trump: "President Biden did not do…

NYT Opinion Editor Hosts Limbaugh Forum, Slimes 'Trollish' Ben Shapiro

February 21st, 2021 3:02 PM

Sigh: The New York Times is cranking out still more vituperative reaction on the passing of conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh. A revealing email from opinion editor Kathleen Kingsbury introducing a package of no less than four essays on the man. Kingsbury announced them with self-importance, and anti-Ben Shapiro insults, in an Opinion email, while saluting her left-…

NY Times Goes on Elitist Rant About Rush’s ‘Indefensible Conduct'

February 20th, 2021 2:30 PM

After brutalizing him in its front-page obituary, the New York Times took a Trumpian angle on talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh’s passing with reporter Jeremy Peters’ “Political Memo”: “Rush Limbaugh’s Legacy of Venom: As Trump Rose, ‘It All Sounded Familiar’ -- Weaponizing conspiracy theories and bigotry long before Donald Trump’s ascent, the radio giant helped usher in the…

Why Are Post, NY Times Obits Nicer to Terrorists Than Conservatives?

February 20th, 2021 12:15 PM

It’s amazing how nuanced obituaries can be for figures that liberal media types appreciate. The portrait is always complicated. But less so when it’s a conservative. Conservative radio star Rush Limbaugh passed away this week and The New York Times slammed him with an obit about “hate,” “mistrust” and grievances.” The online version featured a sub-headline sliming him as “pushing talk radio to…

Hateful NY Times SPEWS Dreck: Limbaugh ‘Fomented Mistrust,' 'Hate'

February 18th, 2021 2:36 PM

So much for not speaking ill of the dead. The sad news of the passing of talk show legend Rush Limbaugh made the front of Thursday’s New York Times. Robert McFadden (obituary writer) and media reporter Michael Grynbaum cowrote an ideologically hostile, tasteless remembrance: “Agitator Who Made Talk Radio A Right-Wing Attack Machine.” They wrote: "He became a singular figure…

Appalling NYT Favors Press Restrictions for Murdoch-Led News in UK

February 17th, 2021 10:29 PM

New York Times’ London bureau chief Mark Landler’s obsessive hostility toward mogul Rupert Murdoch’s right-leaning media empire was on display Wednesday. His coverage of two fledgling right-of-center news outlets also documented the resulting panic of liberals like Landler: “Murdoch to Challenge U.K.’s Fairness Statute With Fox News Playbook.” He fretted: "While Britain has long…

The Woke Madness That’s Devouring the New York Times

February 17th, 2021 8:57 AM

New York Times media columnist Ben Smith’s “Media Equation” column revealed more details regarding the ignominious ouster of veteran science reporter Donald McNeil, the paper’s coronavirus guru. Smith correctly saw symbolism in the story of an old-school liberal journalist being overthrown by young wokesters who disapprove of his supposed reactionary views and citing of the N-…

NYT 'Updates' Their Fake News on Capitol Police Officer's Death

February 16th, 2021 3:41 PM

The New York Times has quietly placed “updates” in their articles about the Capitol Police officer whom they reported had been bludgeoned to death by a violent pro-Trump mob during January 6th’s riot.

NY Times Picks Feminist Filipovic to Rip Islam Critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali

February 15th, 2021 10:51 PM

One would think that outspoken atheist Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a feminist critic of religion, would earn the approval of the liberal New York Times. But since it’s the Islamic religion that she abandoned, the Times has treated Hirsi Ali with cool neutrality at best and open hostility at worst. The worst was on display in the paper's Sunday Book Review. Journalist Jill…

North Dakota Bill Aims to Fight Big Tech Dominance: Report

TechWatch
February 15th, 2021 11:45 AM

While Congress and the Senate were wrapped up in impeaching and acquitting former President Donald Trump mostly along partisan lines (again), one state decided to take the issue of Big Tech dominance into its own hands.  A new North Dakota bill aims to fight Big Tech market power by no longer allowing app distribution platforms, like Apple or Google, to require a percentage of every sale…

NY Times Turns School Re-Openings Into Cynical Republican ‘Seizure'

February 13th, 2021 10:52 PM

The New York Times included in its Saturday coverage of the school re-opening debate a story by congressional reporter Carl Hulse: “Republicans Seize on Shuttered Schools as a Political Rallying Cry.” Does “seize” sound familiar? Democrats rarely “seize” or “pounce” on Republicans in headlines, but the paper makes sure to underline the partisanship when it’s Republicans…

FLASHBACK: The Constitution Is, Like, ‘Old’ and Stuff

February 13th, 2021 12:15 PM

With liberal journalists, the Constitution seems to go in and out of favor. During the Trump era, it was a beacon to hold the President accountable. Will our journalists speak truth to power with a Democrat in power? History isn’t encouraging. It was just nine years ago this week, on February 7, 2012, that the New York Times declared our Constitution annoyingly “old” and out of…

NYT Cancels Bret Stephens Column on Paper's Bungling of N-Word Scandal

February 12th, 2021 11:47 AM

The “woke” meltdown at the New York Times continues apace. Bret Stephens, one of the few right-leaning columnists at the paper, is the latest victim of “cancellation,” or at least his latest column was. Stephens’ latest column was rejected by higher-ups at the paper. In it, Stephens excoriated his bosses and in particular Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger for the brouhaha…
