  • NYT Accuses Tucker Carlson of ‘Nativist Smears’ as It Continues to Employ Individuals with History of Racist Statements

    The New York Times on Wednesday took issue with Fox News’s Tucker Carlson over his criticisms of far-left lawmakers, accusing him of unleashing “nativist smears.” The attempted lecture comes as the Times continues to employ several individuals — from editors to fact-checkers — who have made waves with racist utterances of their own. The Times took specific issue with Carlson’s recent critiques of Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) after the conservative firebrand suggested that she and many of those within her caucus “actually hate America.” He renewed those criticisms on Tuesday night. “There are many of us here who do like...

    The New York Times’ “1619 Project” is getting the full Hollywood treatment, thanks to Lionsgate and Oprah Winfrey. Under the deal, the controversial series of articles that sought to reframe American history around slavery will be adapted for the big and small screens — feature films, television series, documentaries, and various forms of unscripted content. Lionsgate will serve as the studio while Winfrey has come aboard as a producer. “We took very seriously our duty to find TV and film partners that would respect and honor the work and mission of ‘The 1619 Project,’ that understood our vision and deep...

  • Pentagon says ‘no corroborating’ evidence to stand up NYT report on Russian bounties

    The Defense Department said late Monday that there is “no corroborating evidence” to support the explosive New York Times report last week that said the Russian military offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan. The report sent shock waves through Washington and prompted President Trump to outright deny knowing anything about the intel cited in the report. “To date, DOD has no corroborating evidence to validate the recent allegations found in open-source reports. Regardless, we always take the safety and security of our forces in Afghanistan—and around the world—most seriously and therefore continuously adopt measures to...
  • NYT Pulitzer Prize Winner: White Race ‘Barbaric’

    Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times writer Nikole Hannah-Jones once penned a polemical letter to her college newspaper denouncing the white race as "barbaric." "The white race is the biggest murderer, rapist, pillager, and thief of the modern world," she wrote in a 1995 letter published in the Notre Dame Observer, according to a report by the Federalist. She added that white Europeans "committed genocide … in their greed and insatiable desire to destroy every non-white culture." Her essay goes on to compare Christopher Columbus to Hitler, claim that Christianity was an "excuse" for genocide, and state the white race continues...

  • NY Times: Black Supporters Are Abandoning New York City Mayor De Blasio

    As Jazz Shaw pointed out last weekend, Mayor de Blasio has been desperately trying to keep up with the demands made by activists. The short version is that after signaling some initial opposition to defunding the NYPD, de Blasio reversed course and announced plans to shift funds to other priorities. But de Blasio’s flat-footed response to the demands has apparently worn out some of his black supporters. Today the NY Times reports many are choosing to abandon him. The change in tone was evident at George Floyd memorial in Brooklyn last week: Mayor Bill de Blasio looked out into...
  • NY Times op-ed clears up 'Defund the police' confusion: 'Yes, we mean literally abolish the police'

    Fox News ^ | June 12 2020 | Joseph A. Wulfsohn
    A New York Times op-ed published Friday attempted to make clear what "Defund the police" actually means. Since the May 25 death of George Floyd, police reform has been debated by lawmakers and elected officials across the country. Some of the most vocal protests have been pushing a "Defund the police" movement, a mantra that was notably painted on a street just steps from the White House. However, that has sparked a debate within itself as to whether that slogan is a broad description of police reform or if it truly means the end of police in America.

    In a lecture about erosion of standards at The NY Times, I borrowed a exchange from Ernest Hemingway’s novel “The Sun Also Rises.” “How did you go bankrupt?” Bill asks. “Two ways,” Mike responds. “Gradually and then suddenly.” For the Times, “suddenly” has arrived. Its standards are now bankrupt. The revolt of the paper’s newsroom over publication of Sen. Tom Cotton’s op-ed and the craven surrender of management marks the end of any semblance of basic fairness. Stick a fork in the Gray Lady. Last week’s developments amounted to a hostile takeover of the paper. It’s an apt description because...

    The transformation of journalism that began with the political birth of Donald Trump has exploded into a full-blown crisis with the death of George Floyd. It is, and I don’t say this lightly, a battle for the soul of the profession. And if you take a snapshot of this moment, those who believe in the old-fashioned notions of fairness and balance are losing. That’s why the editorial page editor of the New York Times was forced out, that’s why the editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer was forced out, and that’s why a vast swath of this country no longer trusts...

    “ Former President George W. Bush’s spokesman vehemently denied an article from the New York Times that alleged he would not be voting for President Donald Trump in 2020. The NYT reported Saturday that a slew of high-profile Republicans do not plan on supporting Trump’s reelection. Included in that list was Bush, and the NYT cited “people familiar with their thinking.”

    Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) rejected The New York Times’ claim his op-ed calling for the use of troops to quell some of the unrest in America’s cities as not meeting the standards of the newspaper. During an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” the Arkansas Republican Senator compared his work to other items published on the pages of the Times. “I will say, my op-ed didn’t meet the Times’ standards,” he said. “It far exceeded their standards, which is usually sophomoric, left-wing drivel. But here’s what happened behind the scenes. Last weekend, we saw rioting, rooting, really anarchy,...

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) made a compelling argument on Wednesday for deploying federal troops to quell the rioting and looting that has afflicted cities across the country. But instead of bringing order to the streets, Cotton's column has hurled a Molotov cocktail into the New York Times. The still-raging fire has revealed a near-total breakdown of leadership and discipline at the paper and put the lie to long-running claims by Times brass about the distinction between the paper's news and editorial arms. The wokest cub reporters and graphic designers have led a successful coup and are now liquidating dissenters....

    The team of Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) is crying foul as the New York Times blocks her book from appearing on its bestseller list while the senator is up for re-election despite having sold more copies than other books on the list. McSally’s latest book Dare to Fly: Simple Lessons in Never Giving Up, sold, according to the publisher Harper Collins, 10,000 hardcover copies, 400 e-books, and 300 digital audiobooks. That is significantly more than the Times’ lowest-ranked book on its top 15 nonfiction bestsellers list, My Vanishing Country written by CNN contributor and Democrat Bakari Sellers and published by...

    The New York Times is in disarray after its editorial page published an op-ed by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) that upset its readers and its own staff by calling for using the military to help restore order inside American cities gripped by violence, looting, and crime after the death of George Floyd. Cotton’s op-ed sparked outrage from the left, including some who argued the Times was putting black lives in danger. Many subscribers said they were going to cancel their subscription. The Times tried unsuccessfully to quell the outrage. Its editorial page editor, James Bennet, first added a note to...

    When the New York Times is repeatedly bullied into rewriting headlines and forced to beg forgiveness for publishing Sen. Tom Cotton’s (R-AR) op-ed, it’s no longer a newspaper. How did the New York Times get to a point where it can be terrorized into rewriting its front page headlines? Something it did earlier this week, and has done more than once before. How did the New York Times get to a point where it is forced to publicly grovel for forgiveness in a humiliating Twitter thread for publishing a perfectly reasonable opinion piece? All Tom Cotton called for in that...

    The New York Times is facing backlash, some of it from the paper's own reporters, after publishing an op-ed in which Sen, Tom Cotton, R-Ark., called on the federal government to send in the military to quell violent uprisings over George Floyd's death. "NYT reporters in a rare open revolt over the opinion side running Tom Cotton's op-ed calling to deploy the military to 'restore order,'" tweeted Politico's Alex Thompson, who cited posts from writers Taylor Lorenz, Caity Weaver, Sheera Frankel, and Jacey Fortin. In a series of tweets on Wednesday, op-ed writer Roxane Gay attacked the decision to publish...
