    ďWe strongly protest the exclusion of the New York Times and the other news organizations,Ē Times editor Dean Baquet said in a statement last Friday after his publication was excluded from a White House briefing. ďFree media access to a transparent government is obviously of crucial national interest.Ē While innocent liberals everywhere were rallying to the Times' defense, many of those who have dealt with the Times up close could only snicker at phrases like ďfree media accessĒ and ďtransparent government.Ē One skeptic is investigative reporter James Sanders.

    The New York Times is flush with new cash thanks to increasing subscriptions, and the paper's executive editor says President Trump is to thank. "Trump is the best thing to happen to the Times' subscription strategy," said Dean Baquet, executive editor of the Times on CNN Sunday. "Every time he tweets it drives subscriptions wildly." He added, "Our digital subscriptions are through the roof, our print subscriptions are up."

    Fake news has become part of the daily lexicon due to efforts of once respected news outlets such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN to destroy the candidacy and now the presidency of Donald Trump. Fake news is produced with the singular goal of advancing a political agenda Ė the agenda of the left. Fake news has also permeated another cause near and dear to the left: climate change, formerly known as global warming.

    The continuing campaign to discredit President-Elect Trump is increasing in intensity. It is based on allegations that the Russians interfered in the U.S. election. It is suggested that Hillary Clinton would have won the election if the Russians had not interfered. The establishment media echo accounts by the administration's anonymous sources frequently neglecting to include the word "alleged." In spite of their damaged credibility, they have demonstrated that they can still be influential. In addition to anonymous sources, the media are relying on academics and retired intelligence personnel. The New York Times has reported, "The assessment by American intelligence agencies...

    The New York Times endorsed the election of presidents by popular vote in the 50 states plus the District of Columbia. The Times resorts to playing the race card by arguing that the original reason for the Electoral College was to favor the Southern slave states: The Electoral College, which is written into the Constitution, is more than just a vestige of the founding era; it is a living symbol of America's original sin. When slavery was the law of the land, a direct popular vote would have disadvantaged the Southern states, with their large disenfranchised populations. Counting those men...

    Donald Trump is a big problem for the New York Times. These elite journalists are in a dither.

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...

    In an August 12th op-ed piece for the New York Times entitled ¬ďIs God Transgender?,¬Ē Rabbi Mark Sameth claims that ¬ďthe Hebrew Bible, when read in its original language, offers ¬Ďa highly elastic view of gender¬í¬Ē and that, ¬ďCounter to everything we grew up believing, the God of Israel ‚ÄĒ the God of the three monotheistic, Abrahamic religions to which fully half the people on the planet today belong ‚ÄĒ was understood by its earliest worshipers to be a dual-gendered deity.¬ĒAre there any truths to these claims?Certainly not.For Rabbi Sameth, these are issues of social concern and not merely theological...
  • Reporters Raucously Applaud Hillary, Softball Questions to Her at Their Own Conference

    Showing how much the liberal media is in the tank for Hillary Clinton in this election, reporters at the joint conference of National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists on Friday afternoon wildly applauded Clinton’s far-left answers to a slew of softball questions about immigration, the electorate, and even whether she has any black friends. The gathered journalists had already given Clinton a friendly reception during her speech before NBC’s Kristen Welker and Telemundo’s Lori Montenegro came out to moderate the question and answer session (not to be confused with the press conferences she’s avoided for...

    The State of the Race Heading into the two parties' conventions, the race for President is a dead heat, a change from last month when Hillary Clinton led by six points. Forty percent of registered voters now say they will back Clinton (a dip of three points), while 40 percent will vote for Trump (a bump up of three points). A month ago, Clinton led Trump 43 to 37 percent. Most registered voters say they have made up their minds about who to support: 90 percent of Trump voters and 88 percent of Clinton voters say their choice is set....

    There is no ownerís manual for the Oval Office, no school to learn how to be a president. Perhaps most challenging for any new president is learning how powerful that megaphone really is. Every offhand word, every spontaneous remark, every comment informed more by emotion than calculation risks profound consequences.

    When whites say that slavery reparations is a dead issue, thatís not news. When conservative blacks say it, it isnít news. But when Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. says it, you can put a fork in it. There are a few black Americans whose ancestors were never held as slaves in this country. (One of them has a rather important job now ó something involving government housing and íround the clock protection.) Does President Obama deserve a reparations check?...

    In yesterdayís Times, the estimable scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. had an odd op-ed article entitled ďEnding the Slavery Blame Game. Ē What made it odd was its construction. At the heart of the piece was Gatesí very interesting summary of recent scholarship about the complicity of African tribes in capturing African people and selling them to European and American slave traders. Sandwiching this summary, however, was Gatesí bid for op-ed relevance, which was his assertion that this fuller understanding of a broader criminal enterprise would give President Obama ďa unique opportunity to reshape the debate over one of the...

    New York Times ^ | April 23, 2010 | Henry Lousi Gates, Jr.
    THANKS to an unlikely confluence of history and genetics ó the fact that he is African-American and president ó Barack Obama has a unique opportunity to reshape the debate over one of the most contentious issues of Americaís racial legacy: reparations, the idea that the descendants of American slaves should receive compensation for their ancestorsí unpaid labor and bondage. There are many thorny issues to resolve before we can arrive at a judicious (if symbolic) gesture to match such a sustained, heinous crime. Perhaps the most vexing is how to parcel out blame to those directly involved in the capture...

    In a book just released, The Story: A Reporter's Journey, Judith Miller, a key witness in the Libby prosecution, states that Patrick Fitzgerald had offered repeatedly to drop all charges against Lewis Libby if he would "deliver" Vice President Cheney to him. In addition, she charges that Fitzgerald manipulated her into incorrectly testifying about a critical conversation she had with Libby and withheld exculpatory evidence from both her and the defense in order to induce her mistaken testimony Ė testimony the prosecution knew was made because she was acting under a false belief....[must read snip]....Rizzo, of course, is focused only...

    Actor Ben Affleck has made it very clear where his sympathies lie in the Leakgate affair -- and it isn't with the White House. Appearing on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher," Affleck charged that President Bush "probably also leakedĒ CIA agent Valerie Plame's name and so "if he did, you can be hung for that! That's treason!Ē He continued: "You could be killed. That's not a joking around Tom DeLay 'I'll do a year, I bribed the state officials with corporate money.' That's like they shoot you in the battlefield for doing that.Ē Affleck also called DeLay a "criminal."

That's treason!Ē The would be politician and Democrat went through this exchange according to News Busters that gives a brief and rough transcript on how Mr. Affleck came to this conclusion. *** The panel guests were Senator Joe Biden (D-DE) who was quite humorous as he let loose with some funny four-quotes.

    The ethically-challenged "ethicist" of the New York Times Magazine, Randy Cohen, who writes The Ethicist column has inserted himself into the Henry Louis Gates situation by urging the Harvard professor to sue in order to "pursue social justice." To see where Mr. Ethicist is coming from, let us start off with his laughable money quote in his current column on the subject of lawsuits: Gates should enjoy a cool one and then file suit, assuming he has legal grounds to do so. We Americans are often mocked for being overly litigious, but we are not nearly litigious enough. In the...
