PIERS MORGAN: Trumpís right - this Kavanaugh sex smear fiasco proves the New York Times is now..

My favorite newspaper correction was published in the UK’s Times several years ago.

‘Is The Pope a Catholic?’ has been a long-used rhetorical question to infer a statement of the bleeding obvious.

Yet the Times inadvertently managed to cast doubt over this apparently incontrovertible fact in a reference to Pope John Paul II, and had to print the following comical clarification: ‘Karol Wojtyla was referred to in Saturday’s Credo column as the “the first non-Catholic pope for 450 years.” This should, of course, have read “non-Italian”.’

As a former newspaper editor myself, these sort of excruciatingly embarrassing mea culpas make me cringe as much as they make me laugh; been there, seen the play, read the book, suffered the shame etc.

But sometimes a ridiculous correction appears that goes way beyond any semblance of humor, and makes my eyeballs explode.

And once again, a shocking piece of shoddy journalism has played right into Trump’s hands.

These people are stupid.

The New York Times is a Leftist “pamphlet” that has nothing to do with “news” reporting or journalism.

It’s not a place to go to get facts, it’s a political mouthpiece for Leftists and Democrats.

The “newspaper of record” long ago became the “newspaper of ***tards”.

To you, me and any other sane thinking person.

But to the Left and its sycophants, it’s still the Paper of Record.

I remember in college, about 30+ years ago, I decided one day to start buying the paper and reading up on things. I got a copy of the NY Times, as it was the NY Times. Read the news and then got to the Op/Ed section. Took me about 3 days to realize that it was nothing but a liberal rag and not worth the paper it was printed on. Crappy then, even worse now.

Speaking of bad proofreading: "To compound the NYT humiliation, the paper had already been forced to delete a promotional tweet for the same report that began ‘having a penis thrust in your face at a drunken dorm party may seem like harmless fun.’ They apologized, admitting the tweet was ‘clearly appropriate and offensive.’ That much is self-evident, but how did it ever get tweeted? [bold added by me to mark their error]

I assume he means "the tweet was ‘clearly inappropriate and offensive.’ " I didn't check on whether this was a NYT error or a Piers error, but either way it's just sad.

Piers Morgan; a Leftist who will remain a Leftist. His opinion is worth less than the cost of printing those lines.

From being the “Old Grey Lady” to be being just an old hag.

Goodbye NYT; you will not be missed.

I decided the NYT was nothing more than leftist propaganda by the 1970s; in 1982 I lived with a “conservative” roommate who revered it as the only credible news source, and read it daily.

The NYT was pro-Stalin and pro-Roosevelt in the 1930s. Knowing that, plus Viet Nam coverage, plus Watergate coverage, was enough for me.
