    Sub-Headline: With Twitter as his Excalibur, the president takes on his doubters, powered by long spells of cable news and a dozen Diet Cokes. But if Mr. Trump has yet to bend the presidency to his will, he is at least wrestling it to a draw.

  • Oops: NYT Editors' False Attack on GOP Tax Plan Contradicted By Own Newspaper's Analysis

    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.

    NY Times ^ | 11/26/2017 | Marc Lacey
    A profile in The Times of Tony Hovater, a white nationalist and Nazi sympathizer in Ohio, elicited a huge amount of feedback this weekend, most of it sharply critical. Here’s how the piece came about, why we wrote it and why we think it was important to do so. The genesis of the story was the aftermath of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., in August, the terrifying Ku Klux Klan-like images of young white men carrying tiki torches and shouting “Jews will not replace us,” and the subsequent violence that included the killing of a woman, Heather D....
  • New York Times Columnist: If You Support Trump, We Can't Be Friends

    New York Times columnist Charles Blow took to Twitter Friday afternoon with a message of unity, no doubt inspired by Divine Providence after rejoicing in the Thanksgiving holiday. Just kidding. The author of “Fire Shut Up in My Bones” told his followers point blank that Trump fans need not apply for friendship. If u support Trump, we don't have anything to talk abt & we can't be friends. This isn't abt parties or ideology; This is abt right & wrong— Charles M. Blow (@CharlesMBlow) November 24, 2017 He followed up his Tweet saying that Trump’s lying was the cornerstone of his...

    The New York Times ^ | NOV. 20, 2017 | BAYNARD WOODS
    The Manson murders — the seven killings committed by Charles Manson’s followers in two days in Los Angeles in August 1969 — are often thought to mark the end of the 1960s, as if those brutal slayings were the inevitable outgrowth of the counterculture, the dark consequence of long hair, free love, casual drug use and a general breakdown of authority and social norms. This sentiment was most famously expressed by Joan Didion in her book “The White Album.” She wrote that “in a sense” it was true that “the Sixties ended abruptly on August 9, 1969, ended at the...

    Sexual harassment claims against yet another powerful man in media inspired New York Times White House correspondent Glenn Thrush to post an impassioned note on his Facebook page in October, calling on his fellow journalists to stand by women entering the field. In the post, which linked to an article about the latest accusations against political journalist Mark Halperin, Thrush wrote, “Young people who come into a newsroom deserve to be taught our trade, given our support and enlisted in our calling — not betrayed by little men who believe they are bigger than the mission.” It was a noble...

    New York Times reports: One idea now being discussed under this scenario, brought up by two different White House officials who spoke on condition of anonymity, would be for Gov. Kay Ivey of Alabama to immediately appoint Attorney General Jeff Sessions to what had been his seat when it becomes vacant again. Mr. Sessions remains highly popular among Alabama Republicans, but his relationship with President Trump has waned since he recused himself from the investigation of the role that Russia played in last year’s campaign.

    Rarely is the question asked: Is New York ready for a white male political leader? But with a white man widely expected to be re-elected as mayor (Bill de Blasio), a white man as governor (Andrew M. Cuomo), a white man as attorney general (Eric T. Schneiderman), and white men as city and state comptroller (Scott M. Stringer and Thomas P. DiNapoli), race has emerged as a flash point in the elbows-out battle to lead the City Council for the next four years. The speakership contest, for arguably the second most powerful elected post in city government, has raged behind...

    NY Post ^ | November 5, 2017 | Michael Goodwin
    A friend likens The New York Times to a 1960s adolescent who refuses to grow up.  In a perpetual state of outrage, it is a newspaper of college snowflakes who embrace all forms of diversity except thought. It sees its liberal politics not as a point of view, but as received wisdom that cannot be legitimately disputed. The fixation on conformity reached a new low last week when the paper rolled out a coordinated attack on those of us who believe special counsel Robert Mueller ought to resign. I say coordinated because the newsroom and the opinion page produced similar...
  • David Brooks Attacks Those Who 'Collaborate' with Trump

    Newsbusters ^ | October 27, 2017 | P.J. Gladnick
    The New York Times "conservative" columnist David Brooks has become as unhinged as Keith Olbermann. Yes, Brooks has joined "The Resistance" and now urges a scorched earth policy when it comes to President Donald Trump. Even if a policy would help the country, it must be resisted, according to Brooks' new twisted logic, if it also helps Trump. Even those who oppose Trump but support some of his policies,  such as the upcoming tax bill, would be considered lousy collaborators by Brooks who is now channeling his inner Olbermann.  Should you think your humble correspondent is exaggerating about just how unhinged Brooks...

    New York Times ^ | 10/24/2017 | JENNIFER SCHUESSLER
    Leon Wieseltier, a prominent editor at The New Republic for three decades who was preparing to unveil a new magazine next week, apologized on Tuesday for “offenses against some of my colleagues in the past” after several women accused him of sexual harassment and inappropriate advances. As those allegations came to light, Laurene Powell Jobs, a leading philanthropist whose for-profit organization, Emerson Collective, was backing Mr. Wieseltier’s endeavor, decided to pull the plug on it. “Upon receiving information related to past inappropriate workplace conduct, Emerson Collective ended its business relationship with Leon Wieseltier, including a journal planned for publication under...

    When taking aim, try not to hit your foot. You may need that foot, if only to put it in your mouth. Our bizarre age of ideological bickering continues as if we’ve not been sated yet. At least, the editors of The New York Times think its readers still demand a full barrage of invective and “argument” against “the right.” The Gray Lady has graced its pages with the writings of one Jane Coaston, who in mid-October took on conservatives in yet another farrago: “The Hollow Bravery of Ben Shapiro.” Ms. Coaston accuses Shapiro — the brilliant intellectual pugilist widely...

    A new undercover video from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas in a series targeting establishment-media bias features a longtime New York Times employee confessing his coworkers hate Trump “like the plague, dude.” It’s the fourth video on the Times in Project Veritas’ American Pravda series. The third showed London-based editor Desiree Shoe blasting Trump as an “oblivious idiot” and attacking Vice President Pence as “horrible” because of his religion. Shoe confessed that her colleagues hoped their reporting would influence people not to vote for Trump. Earlier videos revealed a video editor for the paper admitting he had friends at YouTube who...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/18/2017 | Normon Rogers
    The Oct. 16, 2017 New York Times devotes most of a full page to an editorial promoting “5 Climate Truths Mr. Trump Doesn’t Get.” They even have graphs to supposedly illustrate their five truths. As someone who has studied climate change and renewable energy I immediately understood that their editorial was very simplistic and does not engage with economic or engineering realities. The Times’ view is that it is important to reduce CO2 emissions and that wind and solar energy are the way to do that. They also imagine that batteries storing power are the solution for the erratic nature...
