    Quinn Norton Twitter ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The New York Times decided to sever ties with the newest addition to their editorial page on Tuesday — just hours after they announced her arrival. Tech writer Quinn Norton ended her very short tenure at the newspaper after controversy erupted over her use of racial and homophobic slurs on Twitter. “Despite our review of Quinn Norton’s work and our conversations with her previous employers, this was new information to us,” read a statement from editorial page editor, James Bennet. “Based on it, we’ve decided to go our separate ways.” In a series of tweets,...
  • Leftists Now Believe the New York Times Is a “White Supremacist,” “Nazi” Paper

    On Saturday, Ross Douthat published a column for the New York Times arguing that White House Senior Policy Advisor Stephen Miller should be included in negotiations about immigration policy because he represents the opinions of tens of millions of Americans. Somewhat predictably, the Times’s liberal readership was none too pleased by the idea that proponents of increased restrictions on legal immigration would be given a seat at the table alongside proponents of amnesty, and many took to Twitter to express their displeasure. Some more unhinged commenters labeled the Times a “white supremacist paper,” while others were content with simply suggesting...

    RUSH: Folks, I have to tell you something. The New York Times put on their website late Saturday and published in their newspaper on Sunday one of the most phenomenal stories. Now, I know. I am on record as having lost respect for the New York Times, and I am on record as having said many times that my instinctive reaction to anything in the New York Times is not to believe it. However, this story I happen to know is true — and it is phenomenal. It is a very, very long story. I would recommend that you read...

Appearing on this evening’s Hardball, Goldberg, speaking of President Trump, said: “The existential survival of this country, which I think it’s not an exaggeration to say that that’s what’s at stake.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Wednesday is the latest deadline for the Department of Justice to cough up records related to its use of a Clinton-funded anti-Trump dossier in its 2016 investigation of the party out of power. The big question is whether our government used fake news paid for by a political campaign to turn the surveillance apparatus of the federal government against a political rival..it will perhaps be chilling to those who participate in American politics to learn that mentioning that you’ve heard a report that the Russians have dirt on an American politician is enough for the FBI to investigate you and...

    Fusion GPS and the New York Times want to disassociate the dossier from the collusion narrative they labored to create.The New York Times’ Russian Reset continues. My weekend column argued that the Democrats and the media are scrambling to pull together a new origination account of the Trump-Russia collusion narrative. The original origination account has become a political liability because it centered on Carter Page, a former Trump campaign adviser who featured prominently in the so-called Steele dossier. The dossier, a compilation of Russia-sourced reports authored by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, is now known to have been a...

    What caused the FBI to open a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign in July 2016, which evolved into the criminal investigation that is said today to imperil the Trump presidency? As James Comey's FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller have, for 18 months, failed to prove Donald Trump's "collusion" with the Kremlin, what was it, in mid-2016, that justified starting this investigation? What was the basis for the belief Trump was colluding, that he was the Manchurian candidate of Vladimir Putin? What evidence did the FBI cite to get FISA court warrants to surveil and wiretap Trump's team? Republican...

    ...Seven months after throwing Carter Page as fuel on the collusion fire lit by then-FBI director James Comey’s stunning public disclosure that the Bureau was investigating possible Trump campaign “coordination” in Russia’s election meddling, the Gray Lady now says: Never mind. We’re onto Collusion 2.0, in which it is Papadopoulos — then a 28-year-old whose idea of résumé enhancement was to feign participation in the Model U.N. — who triggered the FBI’s massive probe by . . . wait for it . . . a night of boozy blather in London. What’s going on here? Well, it turns out the...

    The New York Times, citing only anonymous sources, accused President Trump of saying Haitians “all have AIDS” and Nigerians live in “huts,” and several attendees at the meeting then went on the record to say the accusations were false. According to The Times’ report, the president was furious after seeing a report of how many foreigners had entered the country since he became president. “More than 2,500 were from Afghanistan, a terrorist haven, the president complained
  • Christmas Miracle: Trump Gets Liberal NY Times to Embrace Poor FBI Against GOP Attacks

    How do you get the liberals at the New York Times to embrace America’s internal surveillance agencies? Get President Trump and Republicans to criticize them. Saturday’s off-lead story by Adam Goldman and Maggie Haberman, “Hurdle Facing F.B.I. Chief? The President – Politics hard to Avoid as Trump Weighs In.” The Republicans in Congress are hurting morale at FBI, an agency the Times suddenly adores. The jump-page headline: “F.B.I. Director Wants To Move Agency Ahead, But Trump is in the Way.” The text box: “Constant criticisms have damaged morale at the bureau.”That’s pretty bold, since it’s pretty much the paper’s raison...

    Back in early November, we talked about the little-noted demise of two of the weekly local papers in New York City, the Gothamist and DNAinfo. At the time, I noted that it was really a sad development because papers like that have the somewhat unique ability to focus all of their time and resources on covering local news which is often drowned out amidst all the national and global stories which eat up the front pages of the bigger papers. Those two outlets broke many stories about municipal corruption and waste, as well as keeping a finger on the pulse...
  • Carlos Slim sells off half of New York Times shares for $240M

    12/20/2017 12:13:35 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 20 replies
    Adios, amigos. Carlos Slim, the Mexican telecommunications mogul, has sold half of his shares of common stock and warrants in the New York Times Co., valued at just under $240 million. With the stock up 50 percent of the past year, Slim appears to be reaping a huge profit. The 77-year-old investor was the single largest shareholder of common stock at NYT before the selloff. Divesting the warrants for future shares means he is cutting down what would have been a 16.9 percent stake — had he had he kept the warrants for himself — to somewhere between 6.9 percent...
  • End this nonsense- make them testify under oath!

    12/15/2017 6:28:17 PM PST · by son of terrence · 13 replies
    A new example on Thursday was The New York Times’ statement that a Russian agency “spent $100,000 on [Facebook’s] platform to influence the United States presidential election last year” – when the Times knows that statement is not true. According to Facebook, only 44 percent of that amount appeared before the U.S. presidential election in 2016 (i.e., $44,000) and few of those ads addressed the actual election. And, we know that the Times is aware of the truth because it was acknowledged in a Times article in early October. As part of that article, Times correspondents Mike Isaac and Scott...

    Here's what is not at all surprising: The New York Times editorial board being stacked with committed partisan leftists who oppose the GOP agenda. Here's what is quite surprising: The self-stylized "paper of record" abandoning all pretense of journalism, with said editorial board commandeering an official Times social media account to run an undisguised campaign of direct political activism against the GOP agenda. It's one thing for the Times to inveigh against Republican policies in editorials, or to publish an endless parade of op/eds echoing those same views. It's similarly not unusual for the Times to leverage social media to...

    The Federalist ^ | 11/29/17 | David Harsanyi
    Journalists will often complain that readers don’t properly understand the distinction between editorialists and reporters. To be fair, it’s often quite difficult to tell. That’s not only because of bias in coverage or because the Internet has largely wiped away the compartmentalization of the traditional paper, but because reporters now regularly give their opinions on TV, write “analysis” pieces, and make their ideological preferences clear on social media. Many news outlets — The Daily Beast, BuzzFeed, etc. — openly report from a left-wing perspective.I’m not sure if this kind of transparency is necessarily a bad thing, but whatever the case, an...

    One of the healthiest of human instincts is to feel your stomach roll over at the sight of sexualized children. Though we might not be able to articulate it, there is a big difference between a little kid playing grownup and, say, this… And that is not a little girl, by the way; that is a young boy as photographed by the left-wing New York Times. If you share this healthy instinct, this particular Times Thanksgiving Day piece, an article tailor-made to appeal to the pedophile/pederast demography, will undoubtedly bruise a piece of your soul.
