  • New York Times Warns of Looming Budget Cuts, Smaller Newsroom

    Breitbart.com ^ | 17 Jan 2017 | Katherine Rodriguez
    The New York Times is warning its staff that budget cuts and staff reductions loom as the paper looks ahead to the future, according to a study by the outlet about how the newsroom will operate in the future. Dean Baquet, New York Times’ executive editor, and Joe Kahn, managing editor, said that the outlet’s transformation would require budget cuts and lead to a “smaller and more focused newsroom,” a move that will prompt buyouts and layoffs, which are expected this year. "We view this moment as a necessary re-positioning of The Times newsroom, not as a diminishment,” they said....

    The New York Times has deftly adapted to the demands of digital journalism, but it needs to change even more quickly, according to an internal report that recommends the company expand training for reporters and editors, hire journalists with more varied skills and deepen engagement with readers as a way to build loyalty and attract the subscriptions necessary to survive. The report, released to The Times newsroom on Tuesday, is the culmination of a year of work by a group of seven journalists who were asked by Dean Baquet, the executive editor, to conduct a review of the newsroom and...

    President Donald J. Trump will walk into the Oval Office and be stunned. First, it will be a shock to work in an office decorated with images of men other than himself. Second, he is bound to be suffused with awe as he looks around at the Remington bronze bronco, the Rockwell “Statue of Liberty,” the portraits of Washington and Lincoln, the Swedish ivy on the mantel that has eavesdropped — and leavesdropped — on so much history. The new president will suddenly realize that Joe Biden is right. He needs to grow up. Chuck Schumer is right. He has...

    THE NEW YORK SLIMES ^ | 2017 JANUARY 13 | LEONARD DOWNIE, JR., THE NEW YORK SLIMES:
    If there was any doubt, the uproar this week over BuzzFeed’s publication of unverified allegations about President-elect Donald J. Trump made clear that the gatekeeper role once played by major news media organizations has vanished in the digital age.This poses a deep danger for legitimate, aggressive journalism, especially from the president-elect, who has been consistent in his heavy-handed demonization of any and all media whenever he dislikes critical but accurate stories about him.BuzzFeed’s irresponsible decision to publish a seamy and wholly unsubstantiated research dossier about Mr. Trump by a former British spy gave him the opportunity to attack not only...

    Now that I no longer do a weekly TV show, I have more time to read my local paper. Sadly, that's The New York Times.

Economists estimate that 14 million jobs depend upon NAFTA, but people everywhere often oppose trade because the smaller number...

    The same liberal media that tout women's rights, gender equality, equal pay, the freedom for a woman to express herself by choosing how to dress, is the same media now pushing the narrative that "modest" Islamic fashion is the hottest style to hit the catwalks. Yes. For the moment, The New York Times has thrown their feminist beliefs out the window, opting to promote a fashion that is often viewed as oppressive to women because it forces them to cover their entire body and face for fear of receiving unwanted glances from anyone other than their husbands.

The result, reporters and editors say, could be a loss of transparency that would hinder the press’s role as a conduit for information to the people.

    The New York Times’ Christmas Day editorial tags Senate Republicans for “stealing” a seat on the Supreme Court that should have been filled by President Barack Obama. The Times accuses Republicans of impugning the institutional integrity of the court by a hyper-partisan charade, arguing the justices derive their legitimacy from their separation from the two political branches of government. “Mr. McConnell and his allies took a torch to that idea — an outrageous gambit that, to nearly everyone’s shock, has paid off,” the Grey Lady says. “But while Republicans may be celebrating now, the damage they have inflicted on the...

    ONLY two of the 20-plus reporters who covered the presidential campaign for The New York Times were black. None were Latino or Asian. That’s less diversity than you’ll find in Donald Trump’s cabinet thus far. Of The Times’s newly named White House team, all six are white, as is most everyone in the Washington bureau. Traveling to other departments, Metro has only three Latinos among its 42 reporters, in a city with the second largest Hispanic population in the country. Sports has one Asian man, two Hispanics and no African-Americans among its 21 reporters, yet blacks are plentiful among the...

    President-elect Donald J. Trump picked David Friedman as his ambassador to Israel. Friedman, unlike so many previous ambassadors, likes Israel and doesn't like Islamic terrorists. So the New York Times decided to let him have it with four hit pieces in one day. There were all the usual smears and calumnies. David Friedman is a "hard-liner", he's "right-wing" and he endangers the non-existent "peace process." But there was a major problem with one of the attacks by Matthew Rosenberg.

After all, what difference does it make whether the medium is television, radio, telegraph, smoke signals, carrier pigeons, or, yes, Twitter? News is news.

    NYT now puts Trump's chances of winning the presidency at 58% (this is not scientific, so take it with a grain of salt, but still):

    This is my last column until after the election, so I’d like to address the people least likely to read it: Donald Trump voters. Who knows? Maybe I’ll get lucky and a few of them will buy fish wrapped in this column, and they’ll accidentally peruse it! Desperate times call for desperate measures.

    The Geller Report ^ | October 31, 2016 | Pamella Geller
    The NYT, in trying to clean up for Hillary and act as if she is distancing from Huma even if she isn’t, is diving into the sexual scandals engulfing Anthony Weiner, and spreading the scandals around. They even cited the email after midnight in which Hillary tells Huma to knock on her door if it’s closed “for a chat.” Lol — “for a chat”? How do they know?? How do they know why Huma came to Hillary’s bedroom after midnight? It could have been to give her pyridium, but they had to tell us rubes that it was “for a...

    The New York Times produced another hit piece on guns, pushing for some sort of general increase in the current infringements on the Second Amendment.  At Reason.com, Brian Doherty did a good job of taking apart much of the bias and ignorance displayed in the article. The Reason.com article is worth reading, and I recommend it.  A fair amount can be summed up in these two paragraphs.  From the nytimes.com: The findings are dispiriting to anyone hoping for simple legislative fixes to gun violence. In more than half the 130 cases, at least one assailant was already barred by...
  • BIAS ALERT: NY Times reports on 7-year-old's scary dream about Trump

    10/26/2016 8:32:02 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 40 replies
    Just in time for Halloween, the Paper of Record published a seven-year-old’s nightmare sure to send chills down the spine of many Hillary Clinton supporters: Out of nowhere, Donald Trump appeared. That alone may scare even the most intrepid New York Times reporter, but it gets worse: this isn’t “bad-hair Donald,” this is “zombie” Donald, and he’s going from house to house evicting Muslims and throwing them in jail. The dream was described to the paper by a seven-year-old Muslim girl living in New York City’s “whitest” borough, Staten Island. She reportedly had the nightmare after watching the second presidential...
  • NY Times Reporter Won’t Say If She Knows Anybody at Paper Who’s Pro-Life

    Is anyone at the New York Times pro-life? Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor won’t say. On today’s Hardball, discussion turned to Donald Trump’s charge that the media elites are biased against him. Conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt posited that 90% of the Manhattan/Beltway elite will be voting for Hillary and applauding her election. To test Hewitt’s theory, Chris Matthews asked Alcindor whether she knew anybody at the Times who was pro-life. She first responded, “I’m not going to answer that question.” To his credit, Matthews pressed the question, but Alcindor continued to dodge, eventually saying she hadn’t asked any of her co-workers...

    Donald Trump has virtually stopped trying to win this election by any conventional metric and is instead stacking logs of grievance on the funeral pyre with the great anticipation of setting it ablaze if current polls turn out to be predictive. There is something calamitous in the air that surrounds the campaign, a hostile fatalism that bespeaks a man convinced that the end is near and aiming his anger at all within reach.
