That much news coverage is biased against President Trump goes without saying. But every now and then there comes an episode of bias so egregious that it deserves attention. The coverage of the president's July 3 speech at Mount Rushmore is one of those episodes. The Wall Street Journal editorial page called it "one of the best speeches" of Trump's time in office. Conservative intellectual Roger Kimball called it "perhaps his most forceful and eloquent to date." The message, Kimball said, was an "invitation to unity in the midst of conflict."
Indeed, Trump's theme was a call for Americans to unite in the face of threat. Standing in front of Mount Rushmore's massive images of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt, Trump celebrated "American giants in full flesh and blood, gallant men whose intrepid deeds unleashed the greatest leap of human advancement the world has ever known."
The New York Times' headline for its report was "Trump Uses Mount Rushmore Speech to Deliver Divisive Culture War Message." Trump "delivered a dark and divisive speech," the Times reported, "using the holiday and an official presidential address to mount a full-on culture war against a straw-man version of the left."
The Washington Post went further. In a story headlined "Trump's push to amplify racism unnerves Republicans who have long enabled him," the paper said Trump at Mount Rushmore delivered a "harsh denunciation of the racial justice movement" and caused Republicans to fear he would "forever associat[e] their party with his racial animus." Trump's Fourth of July address, the Post reported, was "a dystopian speech in which he excoriated racial justice protesters" -- a continuation of Trump's "race baiting and, at times, outright racism."

Welcome to the party, Pal.
Did they hear the speech?
Trump haters do not have to know anything more about Trump than they already know (which is very little).
No. The Wash post staff did not listen to the speech. No.
NYT use to pander for the Bolshevists. Nothing has changed since then.
