    Liberal partisans who want to crush any shred of fairness in reporting are latching on to a Friday column in the Los Angeles Times by Jackie Calmes, who was an “objective” reporter for decades. The headline was "Why journalists are failing the public with ‘both-siderism’ in political coverage."Jay Rosen, the academic guru of unabashed socialism in the news columns and newscasts, tweeted "I have been waiting for this column — by a former political reporter — for a very long time." This was the theme:
  • L.A. Times Continues Questioning Larry Elder’s Claim to Be Black

    breitbart ^ | 10 Sep 2021 | JOEL B. POLLAK
    The Los Angeles Times continued its racial attack on California gubernatorial challenger Larry Elder (R), this time on the news pages rather than in the opinion pages, with an article questioning his ties to the local black community. The article, by Donovan X. Ramsey, is titled, “Larry Elder calls himself ‘Sage From South Central.’ But his ties to Black L.A. are fraught.” Ramsey cites “critics” of Elder who “say he’s the Black face of white supremacy and his proposals would harm Black and Latino Californians” — linking to the Times‘ own opinion column, “Larry Elder is the Black face of...

    The Delta variant is spreading rapidly in California and nationwide, but happily so are crackdowns by public and private employers aimed at limiting the ability of their unvaccinated workers to infect others with COVID-19.

    Senate Republicans on Friday blocked an independent, bipartisan commission to study the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.Eager to put the events of that day and former President Trump’s role in it behind them, Republicans blasted the commission proposal as a partisan attempt by Democrats to keep both in the news during next year’s pivotal midterm elections.The bill fell in the first legislative filibuster of the year as it failed to get the 60 votes needed to advance. The vote was 54 to 35 to move the bill forward, with a handful of Republicans breaking ranks — Sens. Mitt...

    Google is turning over user data to US law enforcement, even when requests for that come without a warrant, in the form of requests that are not court-ordered. That emerges from information shared with the LA Times by an anonymous Google user, who said they were notified about this in an email from the tech giant, who said the request came from the Department of Homeland Security, without including the request itself in the email. When this Google user asked to see the document, it turned out to be an administrative subpoena issued by the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE),...

    A collision between a semitruck and an SUV carrying more than two dozen people near the U.S.-Mexico border Tuesday morning has left 15 dead and several others injured, officials said. Twenty-seven people were in the SUV when it struck a tractor-trailer hauling gravel, said Judy Cruz, the El Centro Regional Medical Center’s emergency department director. Fourteen people died at the scene. One more died at El Centro Regional Medical Center, where six others are being treated, Cruz said. At least five more have been flown from the scene to other treatment centers, she said. “The patients are, of course, going...

    A Los Angeles Times opinion column is under fire for comparing supporters of former President Donald Trump to Hezbollah and Nazi sympathizers. “This woman compares her Trump-supporting neighbors, who plowed her driveway, to Nazi sympathizers & Hezbollah & wrestles w/whether to show them any kindness since she ‘can’t give them absolution,’” journalist Megyn Kelly wrote of the piece. “Note to Virginia Heffernen’s neighbors: don’t plow again.” The Los Angeles Times published a piece last week titled “What can you do about the Trumpites next door?” which described how author Virginia Heffernan’s driveway was cleared of snow by her Trump-supporting neighbors....

    The United States is under serious threat of a terror attack from within. That statement is not panic or hyperbole but is based in the very real attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6 and messages monitored by federal law enforcement and security officials about follow-up actions contemplated for the days up to and including Wednesday, Inauguration Day.

    In a Wednesday op-ed, the Los Angeles Times called for the initiation of wide scale “de-Trumpification” and the shunning of exiting Trump administration officials who are described as “arsonists fleeing a wreckage they’ve made.” The essay, penned by University of California-Irvine law professor and former U.N. Special Rapporteur on free speech David Kaye, questions how Trump administration officials and appointees, including “the shameless liars, the sycophants and the cynical enablers in Congress who knowingly sacrificed their reputations to support this president” are to be held accountable after the end of President Trump’s term later this month. Though exiting political appointees...

    The Los Angeles Times featured a story on Thursday about a wedding in Maine, which the CDC believes “likely” caused a COVID-19 outbreak, to argue that people should reconsider their small holiday gatherings. “If you want to know why public health officials are so nervous about how much worse the COVID-19 pandemic will get as the holiday season unfolds, consider what happened after a single, smallish wedding reception that took place this summer in rural Maine,” the article states. The LA Times claims that while only 55 people were actually at the reception, one guest reportedly spread the virus before...

    Fox News ^ | Joseph A. Wulfsohn
    An op-ed from The Los Angeles Times raised eyebrows for calling on "The Star-Spangled Banner" to be canceled as the national anthem. Contributing writer Jody Rosen began his column by slamming a San Franciso monument of Francis Scott Key, who famously wrote the lyrics to "The Star-Spangled Banner," as "imposing and fussy." After noting that the Key statue had been taken down by rioters, Rosen appeared to offer a justification for the vandalism as he, too, was a slaveowner

    Transition: The new adviser to an undersecretary of defense is a left-wing reporter who once wrote that President George W. Bush was the "torturer-in-chief." Leftist billionaire George Soros has a mole in the Pentagon. Before she was a far-left columnist for the Los Angeles Times, Rosa Brooks was once counsel to Soros' Open Societies Institute. Now she's the "principal adviser" to Undersecretary of Defense Michele Flournoy, the Pentagon's No. 3 official and top policymaker.

    The Los Angeles Times' top editor is scrambling to placate journalists of color after years of often-unfulfilled promises by the paper to make grand progress in the diversity of the newsroom's ranks. Some journalists have used terms such as "internal uprising" to describe their anger over racial inequity at the paper. Scores have participated in intense internal debates over the LA Times' coverage of recent protests and hiring practices, to the point that senior editors have weighed in, promising to listen and learn. "I would say in the case of black journalists, that we do not have enough journalists in...

    Tuesday’s edition of PBS NewsHour featured a discussion about “the differences in the experiences of black journalists as contrasted with their colleagues.” One of the guests, Los Angeles Times Executive Editor Norman Pearlstine, talked about how “one of the active debates we had over the past week was about the use of the word ‘looting’ to describe the destruction of the property” that has taken place at several riots that have occurred in the wake of the death of George Floyd. Pearlstine went on to talk about how the seemingly innocent term is actually profoundly racist.--- Dorothy Tucker, the President...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden penned an opinion piece in the Los Angeles Times on Saturday about the tragic death and unjust death of George Floyd. According to Biden, President Donald Trump lacks the leadership the country needs, especially in the face of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic and the death of Floyd, both of which he believes are a result of "systemic racism." On Friday, in discussing a jobs report that made clear some 20 million Americans remain unemployed, Donald Trump said he hoped that George Floyd was “looking down and seeing this is a great day for our country.”He...

    The Los Angeles Times touted a new media lobbying effort to expand federal ad spending by billions of dollars for local media companies. In a story headlined, “Rocked by coronavirus losses, TV, radio, newspapers seek government ad dollars,” The Times pushed the case for expanded government-funding of media outlets. “Every year the federal government spends around $1 billion in advertising to promote its programs and military recruitment,” The Times said. The outlet also pulled on the heart strings of its readers. It stated how media companies were “financially devastated by the coronavirus outbreak, “even as the hunger for news and information...

    Over the last year, the Obama administration has aggressively pushed a $433-million plan to buy an experimental smallpox drug, despite uncertainty over whether it is needed or will work. Senior officials have taken unusual steps to secure the contract for New York-based Siga Technologies Inc., whose controlling shareholder is billionaire Ronald O. Perelman, one of the world's richest men and a longtime Democratic Party donor.

    If it’s not “the economy, stupid,” as James Carville famously exhorted, then it’s the judiciary, smarty-pants. Those two issues turn out Republicans and conservatives more than any others in presidential elections, and it’s a sure bet the latter is why reluctant conservatives rallied to Donald Trump in 2016 — well, most of them, anyway. And Trump has delivered in both areas, but especially on judicial appointments.His biggest triumph — shared by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — could well be the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the famously far-left appellate panel. The Los Angeles Times calls Trump’s ten appointments...
