The 2020 presidential election hasn’t been decided as of this writing, but the New York Times is bitter and panicky about Joe Biden’s surprisingly big loss in Florida and dug up a pathetic excuse: Hispanics were the victims of "disinformation"! In Thursday’s edition, reporters Patricia Mazzei and Nicole Perloth trotted out “Experts Call Disinformation Targeting Spanish Speakers an ‘Emergency.’”
Jessica Bennett, the New York Times’ first “gender editor,” filed some silly pre-election psychoanalysis for Monday’s edition: “Trump (Tough Guy), Biden (Nice Guy) and the Politics of Manliness.”
After Wednesday’s vice-presidential debate, the press was full of defensive accusations against Vice President Mike Pence for his alleged “mansplaining” behavior against Joe Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris.
The New York Times’ coverage of the 2020 vice-presidential debate between Mike Pence and Kamala Harris was almost as slanted as CNN and MSNBC’s, complete with a full story on “fly”-gate and accusations of mansplaining by Pence against Harris.
On the eve of the important vice-presidential debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Kamala Harris, the New York Times is once again fiercely defending Joe Biden’s left-wing choice for running mate by throwing around “racist and sexist” smears.
New York Times “writer at large” Sarah Lyall issued a snotty, sexist story for Saturday’s edition, “The Trump Show’s Supporting Female Cast,” arbitrarily bashing the female members of Trump’s family and any other women who have the bad taste to be in the Trump Administration’s orbit.
Read these highlights and remember this is a “political memo” in the paper’s news section:
Donald Trump registered quite the achievement on Wednesday: He managed to make the avowedly feminist New York Times criticize renowned suffragist Susan B.
The Democratic National Convention launched in virtual mode Monday night, and the New York Times was predictably gushing -- but still reserved plenty of space for invective again President Trump.
The New York Times eagerly scours college campuses for racism and reliably finds it, which makes Saturday’s story defending Yale University (named after a slave-trader) even more fascinating.
The New York Times will strenuously defend Joe Biden’s VP pick Kamala Harris from those racists and sexists who would dare criticize her, as shown in Thursday’s “White House Memo” by Katie Rogers.
The New York Times was offended on Sen.
New York Times political reporter Matt Flegenheimer filed a panicky “Political Memo” for Wednesday’s edition: “Trump’s Bible Photo Op Further Divides Debate On State of Democracy.” It’s another brick in the edifice the paper is trying to construct portraying Trump as a danger to American democracy.
Reporter Matthew Rosenberg got his feelings hurt over a parody Joe Biden website, on the front of Sunday’s New York Times: “The Deception Of a Biden Site That’s Not His.” He devoted 2,400 words of investigative reporting to finding the name behind a website with the audacity to mock a Democrat. Rosenberg didn’t see the funny side: "For much of the last three months, the most popular Joseph R. Biden Jr. website has been a slick little piece of disinformation that is designed to look like the former vice president’s official campaign page, yet is most definitely not pro-Biden...He brushed off a question about whether GIFs of Mr. Biden touching women, devoid of any context, represented facts."
Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar’s latest disturbing comment, this time describing the 9-11 terror attacks dismissively as “some people did something....”, provided fodder for the New York Times to get offended. Not offended by Omar’s comment, of course, but against Donald Trump and New York Post for tough responses. Maggie Haberman and Sheryl Gay Stolberg tried to artificially widen Trump’s Twitter attack on Omar’s 9-11 comments into an assault on all Muslims in America on Tuesday’s front page: “Trump Rekindles Campaign Threat Of Islamic peril.” It began: "President Trump has often seen the political benefits of stigmatizing Muslims."
The New York Times' front page on Saturday featured political reporter Sydney Ember in Iowa savoring all the wonderful Democratic candidates primed to defeat President Trump in November 2020: “‘Beat Trump’ Fervor Lifts All 2020 Democrats.” Meanwhile, another odd article praised losing Georgia governor candidate Stacey Abrams for...being a Trekkie? "Ms. Abrams, with her precision and relish for the tax code, veers toward the Spockian."
The New York Times’ Susan Chira interviewed the media’s favorite losing candidate, Democrat Stacey Abrams, who lost her 2018 race for the Georgia governorship, in “After Her Narrow Loss, Abrams Takes Stock and Regroups -- Georgia Democrat May Run for President, Senator or Governor," which led the paper’s National section. Chira's sympathetic talk with Abrams hit the race and gender issues hard, with cheerleading for her future prospects. There was virtually no criticism of her sore-loser conspiracy theories blaming her 2018 defeat on voter suppression, all of which have been found wanting.
As a half-dozen Democratic women gear up for the chance to take on President Trump in 2020, New York Times reporter Maggie Astor made the front page Tuesday with “How Sexism Plays Out on the Campaign Trail – Voters Prefer ‘Likable’ Women, Reinforcing Gender Biases.” The Times insisted: “When Hillary Clinton ran for president, her detractors called her abrasive and shrill, words rarely used to describe men....In the words of her detractors during the 2016 presidential race, Hillary Clinton was abrasive and shrill. She was aloof. She was unlikable." Actually, the Times describe Republicans in such fashion all the time.
There was a consistency in stories from the New York Times Monday, with reporters taking left-wing jabs against two Democratic senators who have launched presidential campaigns The profile of Minnesota’s Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar launch in the snow by Mitch Smith and Lisa Lerer falsely tried to pose her as a non-threatening moderate: “Klobuchar Enters Race With Appeal to Center.” The front-page Kamala Harris profile was consistent with the Times’ previous “The Long Run” series of pieces on Republican candidates from 2012, profiling President Obama’s potential Republican opponents. In all cases, the subjects were attacked from the left by Times reporters.
The New York Times deemphasized the truly ridiculously implausible and radical proposals in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez six-page “Green New Deal” when it gave it front-page play Friday: “Unveiling a ‘Green New Deal,’ And Ambition on a Vast Scale.” Instead of showing skepticism, the reporters gave the plan points for ambition and used euphemisms to describe the outlandish proposals: "Liberal Democrats put flesh on their “Green New Deal” slogan on Thursday with a sweeping resolution intended to redefine the national debate on climate change..."
The New York Times still loves Stacey Abrams, who delivered the official Democratic response to President Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday night. She also lost the 2018 Georgia governor’s race to Republican Brian Kemp -- but not without making unsubstantiated allegations of voter suppression, cheered on by the newspaper. Now, she’s on the path to the presidency, at least according to Times political reporter Astead Herndon’s “Supporters Nudge Democrat With High Aspirations to Aim Even Higher.” The online headline to his Thursday story: “Stacey Abrams Isn’t Running for President. Should She Be?”
