    Reddit users have begun a campaign titled #SendEmSalt where they send The New York Times offices large bags of salt, ridiculing the publication for their angry (or ďsaltyĒ) reaction to the election of Donald Trump. Users in /r/The_Donald, Redditís largest Donald Trump supporting community, posted a thread three days ago titled, ď#SendEmSalt: An attempt to deliver 1 ton of salt to the New York TimesĒ. Within the thread, user /u/njmksr writes, ďWhile I was viewing the frontpage today, I was inspired by one ĎPedeís [a term short for centipede that refers to Trump supporters] act of sending the NYT 25...

In today's episode of "I Can't Believe Adults Are Behaving This Way," we find Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times making quite a mess in his emotional diaper.If this were in a publication that didn't take itself so seriously, one could imagine that Kristof meant to be lighthearted or tongue-in-cheek.

    Pressed by moderator Chris Wallace as to whether he would accept defeat should Hillary Clinton win the election, Donald Trump replied, "I will tell you at the time. I'll keep you in suspense." "That's horrifying," said Clinton, setting off a chain reaction on the post-debate panels with talking heads falling all over one another in purple-faced anger, outrage and disbelief. "Disqualifying!" was the cry on Clinton cable. "Trump Won't Say If He Will Accept Election Results," wailed The New York Times. "Trump Won't Vow to Honor Results," ran the banner in The Washington Post. But what do these chattering classes...

What I did not address is whether he should release his returns. The press commentary since, culminating in The New York Times column released Saturday night in time for the Sunday news shows, displays the mediaís complete ignorance regarding taxes and their willingness to use it to destroy Trump in any manner.

Am I speaking of Donald Trump? No, it is The New York Times Company. Forbes magazine studied the newspaper's 2014 annual report, in which the company explained: "The effective tax rate for 2014 was favorably affected by approximately $21.1 million for the reversal of reserves for uncertain tax positions due to the lapse of applicable statutes of limitations."

    On Oct. 2, The New York Times published an admittedly "fragmentary" front-page story about Donald Trump's taxes. Just three pages were cited: the first page of the state tax returns Trump filed in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut in 1995. The Times reported that Trump claimed a $916 million loss, which could -- emphasis on "could" -- have allowed him to avoid paying federal taxes for "up to 18 years." The story was stuffed with speculation about what Trump may have potentially done. The Times was typically harsh in tone. The tax records "reveal the extraordinary tax benefits that...

    Our society is collapsing, not because of people like Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, but because many Americans are paralyzed by wealth-envy, ignorance and pettiness. The New York Times has revealed that Donald Trump posted a $1 billion loss on his 1995 tax return.

It appears to me that Hillary Clinton Ďteed up the ballí and The New York Times Ďknocked it out of the parkí for her. Newsflash: Trump is in the real estate...

As Business Insider explains, this factoid allows them to speculate that The Donald may have paid no federal taxes for nearly twenty years. Donald Trump may have avoided paying federal income taxes for 18 years, according to tax records obtained by The New York...

    Donald Trump is a big problem for the New York Times. These elite journalists are in a dither. Trump is such a threat that the Times feels morally obligated to destroy him, even if its staff have to violate traditional journalistic ethics requiring facts and fairness. Editor Jim Rutenberg wrote in a major front-page article last week: "If you view a Trump presidency as something that's potentially dangerous, then your reporting is going to reflect that. You would move closer than you've ever been to being oppositional." And that's admirable. A headline in a major Los Angeles paper sums up...

    It's a paradox. The liberal media champion themselves as the most open-minded people on planet Earth who are devoted to the freedom of speech. How can intelligent people be so wrong? In reality, liberal elites have a nasty tendency to dismiss "conservative thought" as an oxymoron. They don't read conservative books or magazines, and they wouldn't lower themselves to watching conservatives on television. They have disdain for conservative talk radio. They're virtually illiterate on conservatives and conservatism. What happens in the event that the inclusive and tolerant elites identify some spark of conservative brain activity? They respond with journalistic censorship....

    Letís be clear. The global economy is not working for the majority of people in our country and the world. This is an economic model developed by the economic elite to benefit the economic elite. We need real change... We need a president who will vigorously support international cooperation that brings the people of the world closer together, reduces hypernationalism and decreases the possibility of war. We also need a president who respects the democratic rights of the people, and who will fight for an economy that protects the interests of working people, not just Wall Street, the drug companies...

    Let us now address the greatest American mystery at the moment: what motivates the supporters of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump? I call it a ďmysteryĒ because the working-class white people who make up the bulk of Trumpís fan base show up in amazing numbers for the candidate, filling stadiums and airport hangars, but their views, by and large, do not appear in our prestige newspapers. On their opinion pages, these publications take care to represent demographic categories of nearly every kind, but ďblue-collarĒ is one they persistently overlook. The views of working-class people are so foreign to that universe...
  • New York Times Reporter Uses Takeout Food Excuse to Explain Venezuela Economic Collapse

    Takeout food?†Yeah! That's just the ticket! It's about as good excuse as consumerism to explain the economic woes of Venezuela. A few weeks ago reporter Nicholas Casey of the New York Times almost completely avoided any mention of socialism and placed the blame for Venezuela's economic woes on a vague "consumerism" during†an interview on National Public Radio's Fresh Air as chronicled in Newsbusters by Clay Waters. Since that "consumerism" excuse seems to have been widely mocked, Casey went to bat with an even more laughable excuse, comparing Venezuela's economic woes to someone who has been ordering takeout food for years...

    PEJA, Kosovo ó FIRST, a three-part quiz: Which Islamic country celebrates as a national hero a 15th-century Christian who battled Muslim invaders? Which Islamic country is so pro-American it has a statue of Bill Clinton and a womenís clothing store named ďHillaryĒ on Bill Klinton Boulevard? Which Islamic country has had more citizens go abroad to fight for the Islamic State per capita than any other in Europe? The answer to each question is Kosovo, in southeastern Europe ó and therein lies a cautionary tale. Whenever there is a terrorist attack by Muslim extremists, we look to our enemies like...

    Should she win the presidency, Hillary Clinton would quickly try to find common ground with Republicans on an immigration overhaul and infrastructure spending, risking the wrath of liberals who would like nothing more than to twist the knife in a wounded opposition party. In her first 100 days, she would also tap women to make up half of her cabinet in hopes of bringing a new tone and collaborative sensibility to Washington, while also looking past Wall Street to places like Silicon Valley for talent ó perhaps wooing Sheryl Sandberg from Facebook, and maybe asking Tim Cook from Apple to...

    Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said in an interview broadcast Sunday that two of the countryís most prominent newspapers are in an ďall-out warĒ against Donald Trump. During a radio interview with John Catsimatidis, Gingrich blasted the news outlets, saying they are lying about the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. ďBoth The New York Times and The Washington Post have been in an all-out war to try to redefine Donald Trump,Ē he said. Gingrich pointed to a Times article that portrayed Trump as often being inappropriate with women. The report relied on testimony from dozens of women who have interacted with...

    NEW YORK Ė Ten years ago, the New York Times reported on a growing underground subculture in the black community known as Down Low, comprised largely of men who secretly engage in homosexual activity while living ďstraightĒ lives in public. Itís within that subtext that opposition researchers for Hillary Clintonís 2008 presidential campaign began investigating rumors that Rev. Jeremiah Wright was running a ďmatchmaking serviceĒ for members of his Trinity United Church of Christ known as the Down Low Club, which included Barack Obama. Over the past several months, WND investigators have interviewed a number of members of the church...

    In the aftermath of the Democratic National Convention, the party's nominee, Michael S. Dukakis, has expanded his lead among registered voters over Vice President Bush, the probable Republican nominee, according to a Gallup Poll... Fifty-five percent of the 948 registered voters interviewed in the poll said they preferred to see Mr. Dukakis win the 1988 Presidential election, while 38 percent said they preferred to see Mr. Bush win. The poll had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus four percentage points... This represented a shift in Mr. Dukakis's lead from the 47 percent to 41 percent advantage he...

    Mr. Obama calls himself a "night guy," and as president, he has come to consider the long, solitary hours after dark as essential as his time in the Oval Office. Almost every night that he is in the White House, Mr. Obama has dinner at 6:30 with his wife and daughters and then withdraws to the Treaty Room, his private office down the hall from his bedroom on the second floor of the White House residence. There, his closest aides say, he spends four or five hours largely by himself. He works on speeches. He reads the stack of briefing...

    I heard this New York Times take on the Benghazi report mentioned on a noontime political discussion show on Fox News yesterday and found it so absurd that I had to check for myself. Here it is: The New York Times front-page article following the issuance of the report of the House Select Committee on Benghazi included the following paragraph. At a news conference at the Capitol on Tuesday, Mr. Gowdy praised as heroes the Americans who died in the attacks on Sept. 11, 2012. They included Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and Sean Smith, a State Department information officer, who...

    December 31, 2002 More Than Good Intentions: Holding Fast to Faith in Free Will By JOHN HORGAN When I woke this morning, I stared at the ceiling above my bed and wondered: to what extent will my rising really be an exercise of my free will? Let's say I got up right . . . now. Would my subjective decision be the cause? Or would computations unfolding in a subconscious neural netherworld actually set off the muscular twitches that slide me out of the bed, quietly, so as not to wake my wife, and propel me toward the door? One...
