  • The New York Times tries to torpedo purchase of TV stations by conservatives

    The Sinclair group, which owns 173 television stations, is in the process of acquiring 42 more, and the New York Times doesn't like that.  It has run a hit piece claiming that Sinclair's local stations produce politically biased news – conservative news, that is – therefore making Sinclair unfit to own more of them. As Sinclair prepares to expand its stable of local TV stations with a proposed acquisition of Tribune Media  –  which would add 42 stations to Sinclair's 173  –  advocacy groups have shown concern about the size and reach the combined company would have. What "advocacy groups" would those be?  Have...

    On February 17, 2017, President Donald Trump created a firestorm of controversy when he tweeted that the news media (The New York Times, CNN, NBC, and many more) is not his enemy, but is the enemy of the American people. In scrutinizing the Times, in relation to the culture war and major issues within the public square, the indictment, though I have many differences with the president, rings true for me, because, the vast majority of the time, I find myself on one side of an issue and they’re on the other.And, more than that, there is an overall historical...

    Uproar Over Bret Stephens Climate Column Underscores Rigidity of Thought Among Liberals Alexander Nazaryan Newsweek May 1, 2017 In the latest sign of what some see as growing rigidity of thought among American liberals, new New York Times columnist Bret Stephens has been skewered online by readers of the paper for his first column. The subject of that column was a growing rigidity of thought among American liberals. Stephens arrives at the Times from The Wall Street Journal, where he won a Pulitzer Prize in 2013 for incisive columns on American foreign policy and domestic politics, often enlivened by a...

    Complete Headline: People are furiously canceling their New York Times subscriptions after an op-ed disputing climate change was published The New York Times' decision to publish a debut op-ed column by the newly-hired Bret Stephens, a notable denier of anthropogenic climate change, has sparked an uproar from the paper's subscribers, who are furious that the Times decided to publish a column that is contrary to much of the modern-day scientific consensus on the dangers of global warming.

    The phrasing here skirts awfully close to suggesting right-wingers are complicit in the “anti-fascist” violence directed at them. If a provocateur like Coulter “throws herself into a volatile situation,” don’t be surprised if the locals are provoked in a “volatile” way, I guess.Charles Cooke anticipated this idea of “volatility” yesterday in summarizing the campus view of speech this way: “Your opinions are fighting words because I’ll riot if you express them.” [A]cross the country, conservatives like her are eagerly throwing themselves into volatile situations like the one in Berkeley, emboldened by a backlash over what many Americans see as...

    As a former editor at The New York Times (I ran The Times Magazine for 10 years, from 1977 to 1987), I am often asked by friends to explain why the paper has abandoned all pretense at impartiality in its news pages and become a tedious mouthpiece for the Democratic Party and the resistance movement against President Trump. This question came to mind when I picked up The Times on April 20 and was hit between the eyes by the papers hyperbolic coverage of Bill OReillys ouster from Fox News, which The Times had helped engineer with its splashy reporting...

    The media, and Democrats, lost in November for any number of reasons, including their own incompetence and misunderstanding of the American peoplenot Comeys actions or a Russian influence operation The New York Times recently published a lengthy postmortem on the effects that the FBI investigation into Hillary Clintons emails and the bureaus investigation into Donald Trumps alleged ties to Russia had on the 2016 election. The paper casts blame because FBI Director James Comey went public with the Clinton investigation, but didnt expose the Trump inquiry during the election. For all the attention on Mrs. Clintons emails, history is likely...

    You're not. But here's how you could become one if you really wanted to Sigh. We dealt with this back in December, but Nicholas Kristof is not giving up. I think hes obsessed. Obsessed with what? Well thats the truly bizarre thing. Liberal New York Times columnist Kristof (but I repeat myself) seems obsessed with Christianity, and wanting to be a part of it. Now normally youd think, great! Someone wants to become a Christian! Wonderful.

    American Thinker ^ | 04/22/2017 | David Zukerman
    Once upon a time, David Brooks was considered the house conservative at the New York Times.  But in his April 21 New York Times column, he put President Donald J. Trump on a list of "strong men" that includes Turkey's Recep Erdoğan and North Korea's Kim Jong-un.  Mr. Brooks noted that Erdoğan has "dismantle[d] democratic institutions and replace[d] them with majoritarian dictatorship."  The Times columnist went on to assert: "While running for office, Donald Trump violated every norm of statesmanship built up over these many centuries[.]"  Mr. Brooks, however, does not elaborate, explain, or elucidate the nature of the alleged violations. But when it comes...

    Donald Trump For President Blog ^ | April 21, 2017 | Pinkbell
    The New York Times has left up a false Tweet repudiated by the Patriots comparing team size between the New England Patriots White House visit under President Trump and former President Obama. On April the 19th, President Trump welcomed the Super Bowl 51 Champion New England Patriots to the White House.  The media watched this event carefully and not because they desired to watch the celebration but because Trump is a polarizing figure that they can't stand, and they were hoping as few players as possible would show up. In earnest, the New York Times went digging for pictures of...

    Nice try, Gray Lady. You knew something like this would happen. The media not only cant help themselves, they dont want to help themselves. Their entire raison detre is to make Trump look bad, so they cant just let a Super Bowl winners White House visit go by without at least trying to spin it negatively for Trump. What the New York Times didnt count on in this instance was the team itself calling Bolshevik on it. But even after the Patriots did so, the Times still responded with a dishonest attempt to explain away its own fail:

    New York Times columnist Frank Bruni moderates a 'Times Talks' discussion between legendary feminist Camille Paglia and 'Watch What Happens Live' host Andy Cohen about life in the Trump era. Paglia says Bruni's newspaper and the Democratic Party still have "soul searching" left to do about why they called 2016 wrong. "It is incumbent upon the defeated party to pull itself together, or else we're going to get the reelection of the present administration," she said. "I didn't take him seriously at all," she said about the early days of the Trump campaign. "And then, shortly after the very first...

    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...

    Now that the media-Democrat complex has been caught in its own web, there is some serious skullduggery underway. Its 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...

    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 Trumps recent accusation that his campaign was wiretapped. Or, more precisely, the paper said that Trump didnt provide any evidence of the alleged wiretapping. Fair enough. Trump didnt give any proof. He just sent out one of his infamous tweets. But does that mean hes wrong? Ill 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 New York Times has inadvertently attacked the credibility of its own reporting on the Obama Administrations investigation of Russia and now-President Donald Trump. ... An editorial note at this link reveals that the print version of this article was headlined: Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides. It quotes an anonymous source who says that wiretapped communications had been provided to the White House as part of an investigation into the business dealings that some of the president-elects past and present advisers have had with Russia. At the end of the article, the Times reporters fret that then-Attorney...

    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...
