    The New York Times, under pressure, has suspended its moneymaking “Times Journeys” journalist-guided vacation tours of the Islamic Republic of Iran. The 106-page printed catalog of 2019 departures hit mailboxes of Times subscribers this week. It includes trips to Antarctica, China, Japan, and the Galapagos Islands. But terror-sponsoring, Israel-hating Tehran, which has been a destination for the Times since the “Times Journeys” launched in 2014, has been unceremoniously dropped from the list. A Times spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to a question about why the trips had been stopped. The US Treasury also didn’t immediately respond on the record to a...
  • New York Times: Jim Acosta has First Amendment Right to Touch Women

    After Hollywood, the mainstream media had the worst #MeToo record. Here's another reminder of that as the media circles the wagons in defense of Jim Acosta's ugly scene. It's not news that CNN was bound to back Acosta. But the rest of the media decided that Acosta's latest narcissistic tantrum was the hill to die on. For the First Amendment. As Times White House reporter Julie Davis tweeted on Thursday, “@Acosta's behavior here, like it or not, does not disqualify him from the First Amendment-protected freedom to ask questions. Otherwise, how are we different from a place that has no...

    The New York Times ^ | November 7, 2018 | Robert D. McFadden
    Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, a nationally influential literary critic for The New York Times for three decades, who wrote some 4,000 reviews and essays, mostly for the daily column Books of The Times, died on Wednesday in Manhattan. He was 84. His death, at the Milstein Hospital of NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia, was caused by complications of a stroke, his daughter, Rachel Lehmann-Haupt, said. In one of journalism’s most challenging jobs, Mr. Lehmann-Haupt was The Times’s senior daily book critic from 1969 to 1995, tackling two or three books a week and rendering judgments that could affect, for better or ill, literary careers as well...

    In February, one reporter filed to have information about Carter Page’s warrant released. Now? The paper worries about ‘security concerns.’ Last Monday, President Donald Trump told the Justice Department and the FBI to declassify unredacted versions of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant applications used to get wire-taps on Carter Page. The president also called for other materials—such as Bruce Ohr and Christopher Steele’s email correspondence—to be revealed. But by Friday, Trump had backed off, tweeting that the Department of Justice had persuaded him to let the DoJ inspector general vet the documents first. That way a “perceived negative impact...

    HOUSTON — J. Mark Metts, a 60-year-old partner at one of this city’s prestigious law firms, had never voted for a Democratic presidential candidate until 2016. Now he and some of his neighbors in the moneyed River Oaks enclave of Houston are about to oppose a Republican once again, to register their disapproval of President Trump. “With Congress not really standing up to Trump, this election is becoming a referendum,” Mr. Metts said, explaining why he would no longer support the re-election of Representative John Culberson, an eight-term Republican. Mr. Culberson is now running roughly even with the Democratic candidate,...

    Daily Caller ^ | 10/25/2018 | Evie Fordham
    The New York Times published a short story about assassinating President Donald Trump Tuesday just one day before “potential explosive devices” showed up at the addresses of multiple political figures including former President Barack Obama. The New York Times asked novelists “to conjure possible outcomes” to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election for a Tuesday piece. English thriller novelist Zoë Sharp wrote the short story, titled “How It Ends,” about a Russian assassin on a suicide mission who receives help from a Secret Service agent to kill Trump.

    U.S. spy agencies have determined that Russia and China are eavesdropping on President Trump's phone calls in order to gain information that they can use to influence American policy, according to a New York Times report. Although Trump's aides have repeatedly warned him that his three personal iPhones are not secure, the president refuses to give them up, the Times reported. He continues to use them to chat with friends and confidantes. China has reportedly been keeping track of the people who Trump speaks to the most, compiling them into a list of figures to target with pro-Chinese messaging. While...

    White House chief of staff John Kelly and former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski got into a physical altercation earlier this year outside the Oval Office and had to be separated by the Secret Service, The New York Times reported Monday. The Times, citing a half-dozen people familiar with the altercation, reported that Kelly grabbed Lewandowski "by the collar and tried to have him ejected from the West Wing." The altercation occurred on Feb. 21 and was preceded by an argument between the two men, according to the newspaper. The two men were inside the Oval Office that day with...

    The New York Times's opinion department is partnering with comedian Niecy Nash on a new satirical hotline for white people to call when they can't "cope with black people living life near them." The hotline mocks the rash of real-world incidents over the past year in which white people have called the police on black people who are not doing anything illegal. Viral videos and stories have featured white callers notifying authorities as nearby African-Americans participate in family barbecues, nap in a college dorm lounge, move into their new homes and other innocuous activities. Between cellphone cameras and social media,...

    Former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who lost his U.S. Senate bid in August, filed a lawsuit against The New York Times and one of its opinion writers over an opinion piece that he says contains ''several false, defamatory factual assertions" that he claims damage his chances of running for office again. Arpaio, 86, is seeking $147.5 million in damages, as well as attorney fees. The suit, filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, alleges that New York Times writer Michelle Cottle purposely made malicious statements that would negatively affect a bid for the late Sen.

    The BIG TAKEAWAY I got from watching their live polling is that ONLY about 1 in every 40 or 50 people bother to even answer their calls. I was surprised because I thought it would be more like at least 1 in 10. So isn't there something unusual about people who actually do answer their phones and respond to the polling questions? Most likely people with lots of time on their hands. I rarely answer my phone if I don't recognize who is calling me or the phone number. And those rare times I do answer and realize the stranger...

    American political discourse gets worse by the day, a lesson we’ve seen first-hand again this weekend. The Twitter mob on the political left is claiming that our Saturday editorial headline, “Susan Collins Consents,” was intended as a sly “rape joke.” The editorial praised Maine Senator Collins for her thoughtful speech on Friday explaining her support for Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination. We said her thorough consideration was an exemplary case of fulfilling the Senate’s “advice and consent” duty under the Constitution. Senators are supposed to offer their advice and then offer or withhold their consent for a presidential nominee. The...

    Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh warned his friends that they might be evicted from the beachfront condo they rented in 1983, and wrote details alluding to the events that were expected to take place there, in a letter obtained by The New York Times. "Our problem down there might be too many people," Kavanaugh wrote in the letter. "We're going to have to decide while we are there who we want and don't want ... If half of Gonzaga/St. Johns starts coming, we might have to give the boot or else we might get it ourselves." "The danger of eviction...

    Full Headline: New York Times says it should not have assigned Kavanaugh critic to story: 'She is not a news reporter'The New York Times on Tuesday said the newspaper should not have assigned an opinion writer to co-byline a recent news story about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's alleged involvement in a bar fight during his college years at Yale in 1985. The White House had criticized the newspaper for publishing the story because one of its writers, Emily Bazelon, previously criticized Kavanaugh as a "5th vote for a hard-right turn" on voting rights shortly after he was nominated to...

    Talk about desperate. On Monday, the New York Times published a shocking report that says Judge Brett Kavanaugh was once questioned by police after he allegedly threw ice at someone in a bar. According to the Times: The incident, which occurred in September 1985 during Mr. Kavanaugh’s junior year, resulted in Mr. Kavanaugh and four other men being questioned by the New Haven Police Department. Mr. Kavanaugh was not arrested, but the police report stated that a 21-year-old man accused Mr. Kavanaugh of throwing ice on him “for some unknown reason.” A witness to the fight said that Chris Dudley,...

    Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was reportedly questioned by police in 1985 after he was accused of throwing ice on someone during a college bar fight. The New York Times obtained a report from the New Haven Police Department on Monday dating back to when Kavanaugh was an undergraduate student at Yale University. Kavanaugh, then 21 years old, was questioned along with four other men after an early morning altercation at Demery’s bar in September 1985. Kavanaugh was not arrested but was accused of throwing ice on someone for “some unknown reason,” according to the report obtained by The Times....

    A man who attended Yale University with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh went on the record on Sunday accusing Kavanaugh of "mischaracterizing" his alcohol consumption during last week's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Chad Ludington in an interview with The New York Times said he saw Kavanaugh "staggering from alcohol consumption" multiple times, describing him as a "belligerent and aggressive" drunk. "It is truth that is at stake, and I believe that the ability to speak the truth, even when it does not reflect well upon oneself, is a paramount quality we seek in our nation’s most powerful judges,” Ludington said...

    "We're sorry for this tweet. In retrospect, a Twitter poll is insensitive in light of the gravity of this hearing." The New York Times was forced to issue a public apology Thursday after public backlash over a Twitter poll that asked whether people believed if Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony was credible. Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her allegations that Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her in the 1980s. Shortly after Ford’s opening statement, the New York Times’ opinion Twitter account tweeted a poll asking people whether they believed if Ford was credible.
