    My Error: The New York Times Did Not Change Its Headline – There Were Two Headlines from the Start By Andrew C. McCarthy — March 9, 2017 I owe the New York Times an apology, and am extending it in this post. It corrects my column from earlier today, which I have asked National Review to withdraw. I accused the Times of altering the headline of an important report (pertinent to the so-called FISAgate controversy) in order to revise history in light of a shifting political narrative. I was wrong. The Times did not change the headline. Instead, the report...

    The New York Times has changed the headline of a story to remove the word “wiretapped” from its reporting on data being used by the federal government to investigate aides to President Donald Trump, from just before he was inaugurated. The stunning move comes as Trump has openly charged he believes his communications were wiretapped by the federal government during that time period, and longtime federal employees as well as Democrat opponents and critics ridiculed the statement. The text of the story, for which the headline was changed from “Wiretapped data used in inquiry of Trump aides” to “Intercepted Russian...

    National Review ^ | 03/09/2017 | Andrew McCarthy
    Now that the media-Democrat complex has been caught in its own web, there is some serious skullduggery underway. It’s revisionist history, Soviet style. You know, the kind where the bad stuff gets “disappeared.” The New York Times is disappearing its claim that Obama investigated Trump. For four months, the mainstream press was very content to have Americans believe — indeed, they encouraged Americans to believe — that a vigorous national-security investigation of the Trump presidential campaign was ongoing. “A counterintelligence investigation,” the New York Times called it. As I contended in a column this weekend, it was essential for...
  • Did the New York Times already tell us Trump was ‘wiretapped’?

    The New York Post ^ | March 8, 2017 | John Crudele
    The New York Times has a dilemma. Like every other newspaper, the Times characterized as baseless President Trump’s recent accusation that his campaign was wiretapped. Or, more precisely, the paper said that Trump didn’t provide any evidence of the alleged wiretapping. Fair enough. Trump didn’t give any proof. He just sent out one of his infamous tweets. But does that mean he’s wrong? I’ll get back to that. The reason the Times has a dilemma is that, on Jan. 20, the paper ran a front page story with the headline “Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides.” There were...

    You have probably seen the image below of the New York Times January 20 headline. It has gone viral on web and renders absurd the current denials by the Times and much of the rest of the mainstream media that there was no wiretapping of the Donald Trump campaign by the Obama administration. No, there won't be a document out there signed by former President Obama that says something like "I hereby authorize the wiretapping of the Trump campaign." There doesn't need to be. The headline and its January 19 article makes very clear that the previous administration did secretly...

    The Young Turks ^ | 3/2/2017 | Michael Tracey
    The basic formula for every breaking Trump/Russia story is essentially as follows: 1. The New York Times or Washington Post releases an article that at first blush appears extremely damning. 2. Anti-Trump pundits and Democrats react reflexively to the news, express shrieking outrage, and proclaim that this finally proves untoward collusion between Trump and Russia — a smoking gun, at last. 3. Aggrieved former Clinton apparatchiks *connect the dots* in a manner eerily reminiscent of right-wing Glenn Beck-esque prognostication circa 2009. 4. Self-proclaimed legal experts rashly opine as to whether the new revelation entails some kind of criminally actionable offense. (Recall the...

    Fortunately, NewsDiffs.com saved the original One form of fake news is to claim something happened when it never did. Another form of fake news is to claim something did not happen when in fact it actually did - especially when said claim is designed to cast aspersions on someone else. And if you’re the New York Times, you can take this to an even higher level: You can report something that appears to cast aspersions on someone you don’t like (aka “a Republican”), and then, when it comes to light that this something is actually not true and that the...

    Choosing your poison As we all know, Democrats lost. To employ a misquote that they seem to love, they lost “bigly.” In fact, a combination of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Bernie Sanders ended up decimating their party. Overreach, a misguided agenda, and insular thinking have left them at their lowest level of power in several generations. So, they’re trying to figure out what to do next.

    One abortionist is revealing his abortion religion – and one New York Times writer couldn’t get enough of it. In a piece published Wednesday, New York Times Magazine columnist Ana Marie Cox interviewed Willie J. Parker, a Mississippi abortionist and former Planned Parenthood medical director, on his upcoming Life’s Work memoir. During the interview, Parker pointed to his faith as the reason he performs abortions. And while abortion is “life-ending,” he added, it isn’t “killing a person” – just a “human entity.” From the very beginning, Cox hyped that Parker’s book “is rooted” by his “moral and spiritual argument in...

The phone call last Saturday between Mr. Trump and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull turned contentious after the Australian leader pressed the president to honor an agreement to accept 1,250 refugees from an Australian detention center. Late Wednesday night, Mr. Trump reiterated his anger over the agreement on Twitter. He called the agreement a “dumb deal” and blamed the...

    They say that mathematics is the language of science, which is a way of saying that science is quantitative. It is moved forward by numbers and measurements, not just by qualitative observations. “It seems hot out” is not science. Giving a specific temperature, measured by a specific process at a specific time, compared to other systematically gathered measurements—that is science. So when you read an article proclaiming that, for the third year in a row, last year was the hottest year on record, you might expect that right up front you will get numbers, measurements, and a statistical margin of...

    The Obama administration struck back at Russia to cover for the embarrassment of Hillary Clinton's abysmal loss in the Presidential Election November 8, 2016. In addition, the Democrats have lost 1,046 key positions in the upcoming administration and have chosen Russia as their scapegoat. In retaliation, his administration is ejecting 35 Russian intelligence operatives and 3 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) operatives. The latter stand accused of attempts at hacking the Secretary of State Election websites of the states of Georgia, West Virginia, and Kentucky. Those are the three states that have publicly recognized potential election security breaches from the...

    Soon after his inauguration next month, President-elect Donald Trump will nominate someone to the Supreme Court, which has been hamstrung by a vacancy since the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February. There will be public debates about the nominee’s credentials, past record, judicial philosophy and temperament. There will be Senate hearings and a vote. No matter how it plays out, Americans must remember one thing above all: The person who gets confirmed will sit in a stolen seat.

The Times accuses Republicans of impugning the institutional integrity of the court by a hyper-partisan charade, arguing the justices derive their legitimacy from their separation from the two political branches of government. “Mr. McConnell and his allies took a torch to that idea — an outrageous gambit that, to nearly everyone’s shock, has paid off,” the Grey Lady says. “But while Republicans may be celebrating now, the damage they have inflicted on the...

    Donald J. Trump âś” @realDonaldTrump The failing @nytimes story is so totally wrong on transition. It is going so smoothly. Also, I have spoken to many foreign leaders. 7:12 AM - 16 Nov 2016 Donald J. Trump âś” @realDonaldTrump Australia, New Zealand, and more. I am always available to them. @nytimes is just upset that they looked like fools in their coverage of me. 7:25 AM - 16 Nov 2016

    After promises last week to curb his sometimes controversial use of Twitter, President-elect Donald Trump went on another of his infamous tweetstorms early Sunday, targeting the New York Times for their “BAD coverage” of his presidential campaign. Here are Trump’s critical tweets about the Times, in which he claims the newspaper had sent a letter to their subscribers apologizing for their election reporting:

    In a letter from its owner and executive editor, the New York Times, a biased media outlet which together with the rest of the liberal press misreported on the presidential race - whether due to conflicts of interest or due to sheer stupidity - from day one, leading to such idiotic forecasts as an 86% probability for Hillary to win as recently as one week ago (contrast with our own prediction): [Snip] ... Arthur Sulzberger, the owner and publisher of the NYT, promised that the paper would "reflect" on its coverage of this year's election, as it "rededicates" itself to...
  • Paul Krugman’s ‘Global Recession’ Prediction Lasted as Long as He Was Asleep

    The National Review ^ | 11/9/2016 | PAUL CROOKSTON
    Paul Krugman has already had to walk back his prediction of a global recession following Donald Trump’s presidential victory last night. His initial post on the New York Times’ website was confidently apocalyptic about the prospects of Donald Trump plunging the world into a depression: “If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.” He concluded by saying, “So we are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight. I suppose we could get lucky somehow. But on economics, as on everything else, a terrible thing has just happened.” Markets rebounded in...

    Want to understand the bubble in which the elite, liberal media lives? Check out the banner headline of today’s New York Times: “Democrats, Students and Foreign Allies Face the Reality of a Trump Presidency.” On today’s Morning Joe, Mark Halperin nailed it: “Look at the headline of this story. This is the day after a surprising underdog sweeping victory and their headline is not “disaffected Americans have a champion going to the White House” or “the country votes for fundamental change.” The headline is about how disappointed the friends of the people who run the New York Times are about...

  • Brooks: 2016 A ‘Campaign of Hate,’ ‘Everyone’s Dividing Based on Demographic Categories’ (NYT Hack)

    We can go down the list. And, basically, less educated or high school-educated whites are going to Trump. It doesn’t matter what the guy does. And college-educated, going to Clinton. I mean, everyone’s dividing based on demographic categories. And, sometimes, you get the sense that the campaign barely matters. People are just going with their gene pool and whatever it is. And that is one of the more depressing aspects of this race for me.” He added, “This is just a campaign of hate. And, you know, people who don’t like Trump really don’t like Trump. And I guess I’m...

    And the hits just keep on coming. At the same time as the latest Wikileaks email dump revealed an email sent from the gmail account of DOJ assistant attorney general, Peter Kadzik, to the gmail account of John Podesta, warning him of a FOIA case that would make it "a while before the State Department posts the [Hillary] emails", an off-the-record communication which the DOJ apparently had no complaints about, we learned of another coordinated, collusive event, this time involving not the Department of Justice, but the Secretary of State, the New York Times, and the Clinton campaign. In an...

    “the new McCarthyism.” [ . . . ] "Democrats have also accused another Republican strategist and Trump confidant, Roger Stone, of being a conduit between the Russian hackers and WikiLeaks, which has published the emails of the Democratic National Committee and Mr. Podesta, the Clinton campaign manager. Mr. Stone boasted of having contacts with the WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, and appeared to predict the hacking of Mr. Podesta’s account, though he later denied having any prior knowledge. Mr. Stone derided the accusations and those raised by Michael J. Morell, a former C.I.A. director and a Clinton supporter, who has called...
