  • Suit Accuses New York Times Executives of Bias (in age, race and gender)

    New York Times ^ | APRIL 28, 2016 | SYDNEY EMBER
    Two women filed a federal lawsuit on Thursday against The New York Times, its chief executive and its chief revenue officer, saying that the company has been engaging in deplorable discrimination. In the lawsuit, Ernestine Grant and Marjorie Walker, both black women in their 60s employed in the advertising department at The Times, contend that the workplace under Mark Thompson, the chief executive, has become an environment rife with discrimination based on age, race and gender. A spokeswoman for The Times called the suit entirely without merit and said we intend to fight it vigorously in court. The women are...

    The liberal New York Times editorial board cautioned Democrats against the impulse to "gloat" about the apparent chaos taking place in the Republican primary, as Donald Trump upends the party's leadership and orthodoxy. The paper said Tuesday night that Trump's status as the front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination should serve as a warning for Democratic "elites" who have become complacent with their support among certain demographic groups

    First Amendment: More information travels faster to more consumers than ever before. So why does a new survey show trust in media at rock bottom? Because so much more accurate information is available elsewhere. When Matt Drudge in early 1998 broke the story of President Bill Clintons indiscretions in the Oval Office study with Monica Lewinsky, it was the dawn of a new era in news reporting. Woodward and Bernstein seemed like the hip, new faces of journalism when they came along in the early 1970s and helped bring down a president. But although no one ever made a movie...

    Donald Trump admitted to The New York Times on Saturday that retweeting an unflattering photo of Heidi Cruz was a mistake and that he would not do it again if given the opportunity. "Yeah, it was a mistake," he told columnist Maureen Dowd. "If I had to do it again, I wouldn't have sent it." Dowd was asking about an incident last month in which Trump retweeted a picture of Cruz, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's wife, during a spat involving a nude photo of Trump's wife, Melania, that was circulated by an anti-Trump super PAC.

From Politico: “It depends on, you know, what your definition of ‘big deal’ is, but I’m not going to play Bill Clinton for you here,” she said, referring to the former president’s infamous what-the-meaning-of-is-is monologue during his Monica Lewinsky deposition. “The issue, to me, that’s at...

    Forty-eight hours ago, the campaign of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and the super PACs that supported him had apparently found a cohesive, potent attack on Donald Trump -- that the mogul was a "con artist" who defrauded "the little guy." Any attempt to cohere around an anti-Trump message is gone. For the past 24 hours, Rubio and surrogates have eviscerated Trump for a rambling non-response to a question about endorsements from white supremacists. And for just the last hour, Rubio allies and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) have demanded answers from Trump on BuzzFeed's report that the candidate had more immigration...

Trump visited the papers Manhattan headquarters on Tuesday, Jan. 5, part of a round of editorial board meetings that as is traditional the Democratic candidates for president and some of the Republicans attended. The meetings, conducted partly on the record and partly off the record in a 13th floor conference room, give candidates a...

Sullivan is going to become a media columnist which makes one wonder if she will be supplanting Erik Wemple who in the same role is confined mainly to the digital edition. However, rather than speculate on Wemple's fate, let us take a Newsbusters trip down Margaret Sullivan memory lane in her role as the Times public...

    In the early days of the American republic, newspapers were actually started by political parties, leading political figures and even presidents - to get their point of view across. Alexander Hamilton, for example, helped establish The Gazette of the United States, "a paper of pure Toryism," according to Thomas Jefferson, "disseminating the doctrines of monarchy, aristocracy, and the exclusion of the people." To offset this influence, Jefferson and Madison helped establish theNational Gazette, an outspoken critic of the administrations of Adams, Hamilton, and Washington, and an ardent advocate of the French Revolution. It wasn't until 1851 that Henry Raymond started...

Here's Brooks' reprehensible, religiously bigoted attack: Cruz is a stranger to most of what would generally be considered the Christian virtues: humility, mercy, compassion and grace.

The case reveals something interesting about Cruz's character. Ted Cruz is now running strongly among evangelical voters, especially in Iowa. But in his career and public presentation Cruz is a stranger to most of what would generally be considered the Christian...

America's elected leaders offer prayers for gun victims and then, callously and without fear of consequence, reject the most basic restrictions on weapons of mass killing, as they did on Thursday. They distract us with arguments about the word terrorism. Let's be clear: These spree killings are all, in their own ways, acts of terrorism. **SNIP**...

Less and less does anyone really care what leading figures – even those with huge and recent impacts on GOP history like George W.

    GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump is demanding an apology from The New York Times, after denying that he mocked the physical disability of one of its reporters. "Donald J. Trump today demanded an apology from the failing New York Times which accused him (during a major speech before 10,000 people in Myrtle Beach, SC) of mocking a reporter's physical disability when in fact, Mr. Trump does not know anything about the reporter or anything about what the reporter looks like," the Trump campaign said in a statement on Thursday. Trump had cited a 2001 article by Times reporter Serge Kovaleski...

    Donald Trump, leading Republican candidate for president, took his spat with the New York Times to the next level, doubling down on his denial of mocking a handicapped reporter and then demanding the newspaper apologize for accusing him of doing so. In tweets sent out Thanksgiving Day, Trump said once again he didn't poke fun of Serge Kovaleski, a New York Times journalist who suffers from arthrogryposis, a congenital condition that restricts the movements of his arms. His campaign first opened with this clarification: "Donald J. Trump today demanded an apology fro the failing New York Times which accused him...

    Blood still stains the streets of Paris. France is in a deep state of shock; it is a nation of walking wounded. A British survivor of the concert at Bataclan tells how ISIS terrorists “tortured wounded victims by slitting their stomachs with knives.

    Ted Cruz' father Rafael was not quite the anti-Batista rabble-rouser Ted claims in his book. So crows the New York Times this week in a major "expose'" titled: "Cuban Peers Dispute Ted Cruz's Father's Story of Fighting for Castro." Yes, just as he claims, at 18 the elder Rafael Cruz was arrested by Cuban (quasi) dictator Batista's police and roughed-up for being an anti-government activist. But it wasn't for gun-running, as he claims. And a (secret) Batista agent Rafael was trying to recruit to the Anti-Batista cause, didn't snitch him out, as he claims. Instead anti-Batista activist Rafael Cruz...

    The Right Scoop ^ | Nov 9, 2015 | Caleb Howe
    Since the CNBC debate, the media, their allies in left-wing blogs and Hillary Clinton campaign surrogates masquerading as non-profits like Media Matters have all launched an aggressive attack on the Republican candidates. One might think it was revenge for calling out obvious media bias. One might think that in seeking that revenge they are also proving the GOP right. I wouldn't argue with one if one thought one or both of those things, once or twice. The latest target on the media hit list is Senator Ted Cruz, who’s absolutely blistering assault on the CNBC moderators became practically legendary only...

    Washington (AFP) - The Internet was supposed to facilitate better exchange between the public and news media. But vile and hateful comments changed all that. In the face of rising vitriol -- attacks, bigotry and general nastiness -- news organizations are increasingly throwing in the towel on online comments. Last month, Vice Media's Motherboard news site turned off reader comments, saying "the scorched earth nature of comments sections just stifles real conversation." It instead began taking "letters to the editor" to be screened by staff. Vox Media's online news site The Verge said in July it was "turning off comments...

    Sometime in the near future, a transgender teenager in Texas will attempt suicide - and maybe succeed - because vilifying people for their gender identity remains politically acceptable in America. The hateful rhetoric of leaders like Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is the latest, ugliest example. Mr. Patrick was ebullient on Tuesday night after it became clear that Houston voters had decidedly rejected a broad equal rights ordinance that opponents maliciously and misleadingly characterized as a boon for cross-dressing sex offenders.

    On Tuesday, Houston voters will be asked if they want to keep or repeal the city's strong and enlightened equal rights ordinance, which was approved by the City Council last year and put on hold pending this week's vote. Opponents of the law have perversely turned a broad, sensible measure that protects people from discrimination in employment, city services, housing and public accommodations, among other things, into a debate about sexual predators in women's restrooms.

    When I arrived in New York City 28 years ago to begin my national radio program, my objective was to have the most-listened-to show in the country. At that time, the national broadcast media included three television networks and CNN. That was it. There were 125 radio stations doing talk radio, and I started on 56 of them. No one had ever succeeded in syndicating a national daytime radio show, and I was predicted to fail, too. But I didn’t. What was different about my show was that I was the only conservative voice in national broadcast media. I was...

    The New York Times referred to Jill Biden as a doctor three times more than Ben Carson, according to the Weekly Standard. Jill Biden, Vice President Joe Bidens wife, has a doctorate in education. Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson was the first neurosurgeon to successfully separate conjoined twins. The Weekly Standard writes: Through last night, Nexis results show Ben Carsons name has appeared in The New York Times 373 times: 356 times as Ben Carson and 17 times as Benjamin Carson. On first reference (that is, the first time he is named in the story) he has been referred to...
