  • ‘Furious’ British Police Suspend Intelligence Sharing with US Following Manchester Bombing Leaks

    Breitbart ^ | 05/25/2017 | Oliver JJ Lane
    The world’s closest intelligence sharing arrangement is in jeopardy after key details and photographs from the Manchester bombing were apparently leaked by United States’s law enforcement sources to domestic journalists, leaving Manchester Police and the British government — who are collecting and analysing the finds — “furious”. The United Kingdom has now stopped passing intelligence gathered as part of the investigation into the Manchester bombing to the United States according to claims made by the British state broadcaster BBC. While British police had discovered the identity of Salman Abedi, the suicide bomber who killed 22 in Manchester on Monday, the...
  • Go Straight To The Fifth Paragraph Of The Latest NYT ‘Bombshell’ On Russia Collusion

    The New York Times dropped another “bombshell” report on Russian influence on the 2016 election Wednesday, and once again what is presented as salacious news in the headline and lead is revealed to be anything but midway through the report. “Months before the election, U.S. spies learned that top Russians had discussed ways to use Donald Trump’s advisers to influence him,” reads the headline blasted by TheNYT in a breaking news email. The story is clearly meant to further the “Trump colluded with Russia” narrative the media has pushed for months, although it’s as yet totally unsubstantiated. TheNYT lead builds...

    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...
  • New York Times Will Say ‘Female Genital Mutilation’ After All

    Breitbart ^ | 5-4-2017 | Ian Mason
    The New York Times included the term “Female Genital Mutilation” in an online feature Wednesday, an apparent reversal from an editor’s declaration last week that the paper would not use the “culturally loaded” term. The op-ed by “Muslim feminist” Shireen Qudosi, a forceful condemnation of the practice, was posted in the Times’ online Women in the World section Wednesday. “Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is the horrific act of cutting off a young girl’s clitoris,” Qudosi opens her piece. The semantic bluntness contrasts with Health and Science Editor Celia Dugger’s decision to avoid the term “female genital mutilation” in the Times’...

    On Sunday night I was up late writing, and so on Monday I slept right up until the moment I was awakened, sometime around midday, by the blaring sound of a marching band in the street. I didn't need to look out the window to know what was going on. The music was The Internationale. The date was May 1. In the small Norwegian town where I live, the May Day parade was passing by.   The New York Times commemorated the Communist holiday in its own way – with an essay by Vivian Gornick, now eighty-one, a card-carrying member...

    New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet on Sunday called President Donald Trump's attacks on the New York Times and other media outlets "dangerous." Baquet appeared on CNN's "Reliable Sources" with host Brian Stelter to respond to criticisms Trump made at a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on Saturday. At the rally, Trump said The New York Times was full of "incompetent, dishonest people, who after an election had to apologize because ... they covered it so badly that they felt they were forced to apologize because their predictions were so bad." Baquet refuted the assertion on Sunday, calling Trump's claim...

    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. In his column, Stephens compared the "certitude" with which Hillary Clinton's advisers believed she would win the 2016 election to climate scientists' repeated warnings about climate change risks. As evidence, Stephens said that inaccurate polling data during the 2016 campaign proves that...

    Multiple scientists and climate change advocates are calling for a boycott of The New York Times after an op-ed that they felt pushed anti-climate change agendas. The Friday column, the first written by Bret Stephens for the publication, uses the argument that data doesn’t always convey reality to make the point that climate change isn’t definite, despite evidence that supports the claim. He refers partially to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential run, chronicled in the recent book “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign.” Authors Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes wrote that the campaign relied too much on data, one of the...

  • NYT on Berkeley: Conservatives are “eagerly throwing themselves into volatile situations”

    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...

    The New York Times published an op-ed Monday by New York University comparative literature professor Ulrich Baer, who argued that those young protesters derided as campus "snowflakes" who violently oppose speakers who offend leftist sensibilities are actually getting it right about free speech. Indeed, Baer concludes, "We should thank the student protestors, the activists in Black Lives Matter and other 'overly sensitive' souls for keeping watch over the soul of our republic." No we shouldn't. We must be vigilant against those totalitarian students, activists, and snowflakes in defense of our republic's soul.
  • New York Times scraps 'female genital mutilation' for being 'culturally loaded' term

    04/24/2017 6:45:24 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 73 replies
    A top New York Times editor decided the paper shouldn’t use the term “female genital mutilation” because the phrase is too “culturally loaded” and widens a divide between the Western world and “people who follow the rite.” Health and Science editor Celia Dugger said she came to the conclusion to refer to the act of removing the female genitalia of young girls as “genital cutting” during a trip to Africa in the 1990s. She spoke about her decision in a Times mailbag article in response to a reader’s question. “I never minced words in describing exactly what form of cutting...

    Worried the term “female genital mutilation” might sharpen the divide between those who oppose brutally cutting away a little girl’s genitalia to deprive her of sexual pleasure and those who practice the “rite,” one New York Times editor instead refers to the ritual as “genital cutting.”“There’s a gulf between the Western (and some African) advocates who campaign against the practice and the people who follow the rite, and I felt the language used widened that chasm,” NYT science and health editor Celia Dugger explained Friday. She also said the widely used term (FGM) is “culturally loaded” in the explanation, which came as a result of...

    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...

    When you receiving a devastating fact-check by the Twitter account of an NFL football team, it might be time to delete your newspaper. That very thing occurred on Wednesday, when the New York Times tweeted out two photos comparing the number of Patriots coaches and players who attended in 2015, when Obama was president, versus how many attended on Wednesday with President Trump: "Patriots’ turnout for President Obama in 2015 vs. Patriots’ turnout for President Trump today: https://t.co/OxMEOqZonI pic.twitter.com/pLmJWhOw1j" — NYT Sports (@NYTSports) April 19, 2017 Clearly, the tweet makes the Obama White House visit look significantly better attended than...

    The New England Patriots have called out the New York Times for lying to people in multiple tweets about the NFL team meeting with President Trump. On Thursday, New York Times tweeted out two photos. One photo showed the Patriots with President Obama at the White House in 2015. The second photo showed a picture of the Patriots with President Trump in 2017, showing fewer people standing with the President Trump than Obama. The only reason to tweet such a comparison photo would be to ridicule President Trump. However, the New England Patriots official Twitter account responded to the photo...

    Shortened title. Full title: NYT: Hey, Sorry For Not Mentioning That An Imprisoned 'Palestinian Leader' We Published Murdered Five Israelis It wasn't so much of an apology as it was an after-the-fact 'clarification' about why a "Palestinian leader" whose essay about the travails of living in an Israeli prison appeared in the New York Times ended up getting incarcerated in the first place.  That little detail wasn't made clear in the op/ed for some odd reason, and the newspaper didn't initially include that context either.  Turns out that the author was locked up after being convicted for murdering five people and terrorism...
