Skip to comments.New York Times chief outlines coverage shift: From Trump-Russia to Trump racism
Posted on 08/15/2019 9:03:28 PM PDT by Bigtigermike
Dean Baquet, the executive editor of the New York Times, said recently that, after the Mueller report, the paper has to shift the focus of its coverage from the Trump-Russia affair to the president's alleged racism.
"We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well," Baquet said. "Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story."
Baquet made the remarks at an employee town hall Monday. A recording was leaked to Slate, which published a transcript Thursday.
The day Bob Mueller walked off that witness stand, two things happened," Baquet continued. "Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, 'Holy shit, Bob Mueller is not going to do it.' And Donald Trump got a little emboldened politically, I think. Because, you know, for obvious reasons. And I think that the story changed. A lot of the stuff we're talking about started to emerge like six or seven weeks ago. We're a little tiny bit flat-footed

More fake news.
The Russki hoax didn’t work out for them so the “prog” maggots have to shift gears into their “racist white supremacist” gig. These anti-America maggots need a good @$$ kicking.
The next debate will be multiple choice:
By “shift resources” he means they are going to drag out their “uncle Toms”.
The speech had been proceeding for perhaps twenty minutes when a messenger hurried on to the platform and a scrap of paper was slipped into the speaker's hand. He unrolled and read it without pausing in his speech. Nothing altered in his voice or manner, or in the content of what he was saying, but suddenly the names were different. Without words said, a wave of understanding rippled through the crowd. Oceania was at war with Eastasia! The next moment there was a tremendous commotion. The banners and posters with which the square was decorated were all wrong! Quite half of them had the wrong faces on them. It was sabotage! The agents of Goldstein had been at work! There was a riotous interlude while posters were ripped from the walls, banners torn to shreds and trampled underfoot. The Spies performed prodigies of activity in clambering over the rooftops and cutting the streamers that fluttered from the chimneys. But within two or three minutes it was all over. The orator, still gripping the neck of the microphone, his shoulders hunched forward, his free hand clawing at the air, had gone straight on with his speech. One minute more, and the feral roars of rage were again bursting from the crowd. The Hate continued exactly as before, except that the target had been changed.
I really thought there would be some Democrats that would realize how badly theyve been lied to & how low an opinion the media and the DNC have of them.
On to Despicable News II.
Are they now working FOR TRUMP?...
Except you were nowhere near the truth.
Slate spying on the NYT... we live in interesting times! LOL!
He persists in a lie.
Blahblahblahblah we’ll get him this time. How humiliating.
Don’t count on it ...
The day Bob Mueller walked off that witness stand..........
..............Russia,Russia,Russia was dead so we hade to make up some other lie.
“We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well. For 2 years we smeared Donald Trump virtually every day, in the most egregious manner possible, with a story we all knew was a total lie.”
Because that angle hasn't been tried before. I swear, the media is as bad as Hollywood with it's remakes.
I have another “R” word for him.....”Re-elected”
The NYT will kick the baquet in November 2020.
