  • Suffering from existential despair, the New York Times found itself a new scapegoat -- Christians Who Support Trump

    div class="article_body top mrf-hidden"> One can feel the existential anguish oozing off every page and pixel at The New York Times.  That's not because the coronavirus is approaching apocalyptic proportions, with mass die-offs comparable to the year 1348, when the Black Death was at its apex.  Instead, the Times is confronting a different problem: President Donald Trump's poll numbers are doing very well.  His recent town hall was the most watched town hall in cable history.  His daily press conferences enthrall so many people that the media are desperate to stop televising them. Clearly, the Times had to bring out the big guns to ensure that Americans understand that not only is...
  • States Say Doctors Are Stockpiling Trial Coronavirus Drugs — For Themselves

    Doctors are hoarding medications touted as possible coronavirus treatments by writing prescriptions for themselves and family members, according to pharmacy boards in states across the country. The stockpiling has become so worrisome in Idaho, Kentucky, Ohio, Nevada, Oklahoma, North Carolina and Texas that the boards in those states have issued emergency restrictions or guidelines on how the drugs can be dispensed at pharmacies. More states are expected to follow suit. “This is a real issue, and it is not some product of a few isolated bad apples,” said Jay Campbell, executive director of the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy. The...

    WASHINGTON — As the United States entered Week 2 of trying to contain the spread of the coronavirus by shuttering large swaths of the economy, President Trump, Wall Street executives and many conservative economists began questioning whether the government had gone too far and should instead lift restrictions that are already inflicting deep pain on workers and businesses. Consensus continues to grow among government leaders and health officials that the best way to defeat the virus is to order nonessential businesses to close and residents to confine themselves at home. Britain, after initially resisting such measures, essentially locked down its...
  • Trump rips NY Times for altering coronavirus negotiations headline 'to satisfy the radical left'

    President Trump ripped The New York Times on Monday for repeatedly changing a headline on an article regarding a trillion-dollar coronavirus relief package "to satisfy the radical left," calling the modifications "corrupt" and "dangerous" for the U.S. "The New York Times changed headlines 3 times in order to satisfy the Radical Left. What should have been a good story got 'worse & worse', until the headline alone made it very unfair," the president tweeted. "Fake & Corrupt News that is very dangerous for our Country!" Trump's ire came after the Times changed the original headline on an article, "Democrats Block...

    New York Slimes ^ | March 20, 2020 | Bret Stephens
    Donald Trump’s first instinct when it came to the coronavirus was to dismiss the threat as overblown, over there, and “totally under control.” His second was to use the pandemic as an opportunity to show off his world-historical leadership skills by treating the virus as a threat on par with World War II. Both reactions were driven by politics, not evidence. The first was unquestionably wrong. The second needs to be questioned aggressively before we impose solutions possibly more destructive than the virus itself

    The Democrats are desperate to blame President Trump for the Wuhan coronavirus, and to criticize any measures his administration may take. They are shameless, too; at first, his response–an early ban on travel from China, which undoubtedly saved lives–was racist and xenophobic, while now anything he does is too little. Meanwhile, one country after another, Germany and Canada most recently, is closing down its borders. I guess there are xenophobes everywhere. The New York Times bashes the president daily, usually by peddling fake news. The latest example comes from Editorial Board member Mara Gay, the same one who said on...

    At least eight New York Times authors shared a deceptively edited quote Monday from President Donald Trump’s recent call with state governors, creating the false impression that the president is denying federal support for ventilators that are needed in hospitals treating coronavirus patients. In his message, the president recommended that states procure respirators and ventilators because it would be faster — but added that the federal government “will be backing you.” The Times journalists omitted the bulk of the president’s statement as they shared the story on social media. The misleading, partial quote was also boosted by a CNN correspondent...
  • As Top Historians Ring Alarm Bells About NYT’s 1619 Project, Defiant Public Schools Refuse To Answer Questions

    “On August 19 of last year I listened in stunned silence as Nikole Hannah-Jones, a reporter for the New York Times, repeated an idea that I had vigorously argued against,” reads the first sentence of Friday’s essay by Leslie Harris, a history professor at Northwestern University. Harris is just the latest in a string of academics to levy criticism on Hannah-Jones and the 1619 Project. She is the first, however, who actually took part in the project as a fact-checker. During the publication process for 1619, Harris “vigorously disputed” the idea that the American Revolution was actually about preserving slavery....

    New York Post ^ | March 1, 2020 | Ryan P. Williams and Matthew J. Peterson
    It isn’t an overstatement to describe The New York Times’ 1619 Project as a journalistic declaration of war against America. Many of the project’s historical claims are downright fabrications — but in the most decisive respect, that’s besides the point. The project’s leader, Nikole Hannah-Jones, has tried to brush off the criticism of many distinguished historians by claiming that such disagreement is how historiography always proceeds — as we learn progressively more, a new “narrative” challenges old ones. The 1619 Project, however, isn’t about new historical scholarship, and insofar as journalism is about the quest for truth, it isn’t quite...

    Attorneys for Nick Sandmann intend to file complaints against five additional media outlets, a status report filed earlier this week says. The report states that lawyers for the Covington Catholic High School senior intend to file lawsuits against Gannett, ABC, ViacomCBS, The New York Times and Rolling Stone. "All of the future defendants listed above have published or republished statements made by Nathan Phillips and others that Nicholas blocked or otherwise restricted Phillips’ free movement and would not allow Phillips to retreat at the National Mall on January 18, 2019. Nicholas reserves his right to file complaints in this Court...

    The Trump campaign’s filing of a libel lawsuit against the so-called "extremely biased" New York Times was a "clever" move but the case will likely be “dismissed,” according to Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano. The lawsuit argued that the newspaper's March 27, 2019 op-ed titled “The Real Trump-Russia Quid Pro Quo" amounted to a knowingly false smear intended to "improperly influence the presidential election in November 2020." "They did a bad thing," Trump said at a coronavirus press conference later Wednesday, before hinting at more litigation. "There will be more coming. There will be more coming.”

    The Trump campaign has filed a libel lawsuit against what it called the “extremely biased” New York Times, saying the paper’s March 27, 2019 op-ed titled “The Real Trump-Russia Quid Pro Quo” amounted to a knowingly false smear intended to “improperly influence the presidential election in November 2020.” “They did a bad thing,” Trump said at a coronavirus press conference later Wednesday, before apparently promising more litigation. “There will be more coming. There will be more coming.” The lawsuit seeks “compensatory damages in the millions of dollars,” as well as punitive damages and legal fees. Knowing that then-Special Counsel Robert...

  • Childish Logic: The New York Times argues against adult justice for Tessa Majors’s alleged killers.

    New York Post ^ | February 24, 2020 | Nicole Gelinas
    Last December, Tessa Majors, an 18-year-old college student, was stabbed to death in Manhattan’s Morningside Park. Police have now apprehended three suspects, 14-year-olds Rashaun Weaver and Luchiano Lewis and 13-year-old Zyairr Davis. Weaver and Lewis face second-degree murder charges as adults, and potential life sentences; Davis faces family-court charges as a juvenile because he is not alleged to have directly restrained or stabbed Majors. The New York Times has published a nearly full-page editorial arguing that no 14-year-old, not even an alleged killer, should be tried in adult court or face a prison sentence that extends beyond his majority. In...

    Imagine, in the waning days of World War II, any American publication — let alone the New York Times — publishing an opinion piece by one of Hitler’s deputies, running this identifier (with an honorific, always an honorific): “Mr. Himmler devised the very first concentration camp for Nazi Germany.” Sounds like something out of The Onion, right? But this, in effect, is what the Times did on Thursday, publishing an op-ed by Sirajuddin Haqqani, describing him as “the deputy leader of the Taliban,” rather than what he is: an unrepentant terrorist. In a column politely titled “What We, the Taliban,...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | February 18, 2020 | Jason L. Riley
    “I think the important point to make about slavery is that it had existed for thousands of years without substantial criticism,” said the historian Gordon Wood in an interview last year. “But it’s the American Revolution that makes it a problem for the world. And the first real anti-slave movement takes place in North America. So this is what’s missed by these essays in the 1619 Project.” Mr. Wood is one of the country’s leading experts on the colonial era, and he was referring to a collection of New York Times articles published last summer that examine the role of...

    You know politics have gotten weird when a liberal New York Times columnist begs Democrat voters to abandon Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in favor of nominating Michael Bloomberg to lead the Democratic ticket. Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman wrote a wacky Feb. 11, op-ed headlined “Paging Michael Bloomberg.” In the piece, Friedman suggested Bloomberg, owner of Bloomberg News, was more capable of appealing “to independents, moderate Republicans and suburban women” than self-proclaimed democratic socialist Sanders. Friedman was determined to get Democrats not to nominate Sanders: “Please, Democrats, don’t tell me you need Sanders’s big, ill-thought-through, revolutionary grand schemes to get...

    A free and independent press is, and should always be, an impenetrable bulwark of our democracy . . . Thomas Jefferson [wrote to that effect] in a 1789 letter. The media’s hallowed role, embodied in the First Amendment, assures near-total freedom to report (and even misreport) the news. Press freedom, however, implies a responsibility to place truth above narrow partisan campaigns. That’s why editorial and commentary pages must be kept separate from news reporting. That separation has often been breached, but certain prominent news organizations have branded themselves clarions of truth. The New York Times long nurtured such a reputation....

    The 1619 Project—The New York Times Magazine's much vaunted series of essays about the introduction of African slavery to the Americas—will now be taught in K-12 schools around the country. School districts in Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Buffalo, New York, have decided to update their history curricula to include the material, which posits that the institution of slavery was so embedded in the country's DNA that the country's true founding could be said to have occurred in 1619, rather than in 1776. "One of the things that we are looking at in implementing The 1619 Project is to let everyone...
