I see plenty of anti-Trump ads.

Why isn’t the Slimes complaining about those lie-infested ads “flooding” social media?

NYT is a political entity, not public entity.

The Fishwrap of Record is just ticked because this guy fights using the same tactics as his enemies do, and he’s better at it than those dummies. The butthurt practically drips from every paragraph in the article. ;-)

What’s that Alinsky rule? “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules” or something. Dems are experiencing what it means when that stuff boomerangs back on them, I’d say.

Liberal algorithms favor buggery, sexual perversion and climate hoaxes.

By now, I hope most everyone on FR has given. Small amounts can turn into large amounts when aggregated.

While we are at it, lets take back the house.

“..political campaigns are free to disregard facts.” How cute, “Mommy make them stop telling the truth! I don’t want the truth, no no no!”

Because, as Hillary said, the Democrats have to “out-lie” the Republicans.

The Fishwrap of Record is just ticked because ...social media is getting the ad revenue not the NYT.

They see their business model failing and do not know how to change it.

It may be too late for the NYT (or any newspaper for that matter) but they should get out of the propaganda business for one political party and return to reporting “news”. Leave opinions on the editorial page.

“...that play best on platforms where algorithms favor outrage and political campaigns are free to disregard facts.”

This describes the NYT to a T, yet they still ran with it.
