  • A battle over the future of truth in news: Goodwin

    NY Post ^ | June 5, 2021 | 9:11pm | By Michael Goodwin
    A dispute over whether a New York Times writer should get tenure at the University of North Carolina would seem to be of little national importance. On one side is Nikole Hannah-Jones...creator of the Times’ 1619 Project. She won the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for an extended essay, but some of her claims were debunked by historians and her push for rewriting American history is cited as a reason why she should not get tenure. Her chief critic is Walter E. Hussman Jr... As an evangelist for impartial, fair journalism, he is the polar opposite of Hannah-Jones and says he wishes...
  • Don’t Forget, Michael Flynn Pleaded Guilty. Twice.

    It can be hard to recall, since so many members of President Trump’s inner circle have been indicted, convicted of federal crimes and sent to prison, but the first felon to emerge from this administration was Michael Flynn. Flynn, who served as national security adviser before resigning in disgrace, pleaded guilty to lying to FBI investigators. At the time, Trump said, “I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the vice president and the FBI.” Flynn did lie, as he admitted to under oath in a court of law — twice. He told investigators, falsely, that he had...

    We are unlikely to stumble upon dads openly suckling their babies anytime soon. The hormones are not without side effects; they inevitably entail some degree of breast growth. But as technology has made it increasingly feasible, the potential impact of male breastfeeding on gender roles — who takes on what sort of parenting duties, and all of the consequences that result from those early first choices — looms larger than ever. And at least one man is excited about the possibilities. “I just thought, ‘How cool if it would work!’” Mr. Bengtsson said. “Just imagine the extraordinary consequences it...
  • NY Times editor on Trump headline: It was a 'f---ing' mess

    The Hill ^ | 08/12/19
    New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet on Monday admitted during a newsroom meeting that an original headline focused on President Trump's response to mass shootings last week was a "f---ing mess," according to The Daily Beast. Baquet made the comment during a meeting with newsroom staff that addressed an array of issues, including how the newspaper has covered Trump and race. But the meeting mainly focused on a print headline — "Trump Urges Unity Against Racism" — describing Trump's response to a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, that left 22 people dead earlier this month, The Daily Beast...

    Former Clinton pollster Mark Penn weighed in on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's power and influence to get 'The New York Times' to update a headline about President Trump's statement on the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio. Penn told FOX News host Tucker Carlson: "To actually bend after it is printed to a political faction is to cave in a way that I think will haunt them for some time to come." "The paper wanted to please a constituency and they weren't willing to stand behind their own headline and were then willing to change for that constituency," Penn said. "That...

The FBI was out to set up Michael Flynn. Russian historian Svetlana Lokhova spoke out in April about how she was set...

    You have probably heard by now that the New York Times recently hired a racist. If you are familiar with the New York Times you probably weren’t to surprised by that but a lot of people out there are finally realizing that the liberal left doesn’t care about racism if it directed at white people... Most rational people are confused as to how ‘Roseanne’ loses her job for one bad joke and people like Sarah Jeong are rewarded with jobs. It looks like Wikipedia editors have decided to stick up for Jeong. From The Daily Caller:New York Times editorial board...

    Academia is hell. In the latest higher-education fad, students want "trigger warnings," according to The New York Times. It appears that some students are so fragile that they want university staff to protect them from big bad ideas. Students around the country say they want "explicit alerts that the material they are about to read or see in a classroom might upset them or, as some students assert, cause symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder in victims of rape or in war veterans." An Oberlin College draft -- now "under revision" -- for trigger warnings suggested faculty "be aware of racism,...

    The New York Times just delivered a mortal blow to the Obama administration and its Middle East policy. Call it fratricide. It was clearly unintentional. Indeed, is far from clear that the paper even realizes what it has done. Last Saturday the Times published an 8,000 word account by David Kirkpatrick detailing the terrorist strike against the US consulate and the CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. In it, Kirkpatrick tore to shreds the foundations of President Barack Obama’s counter-terrorism strategy and his overall policy in the Middle East. Obama first enunciated those foundations in his June...

    Vladimir Putin is currently cashing in on an ill-advised promise made when two presidents thought no one was listening. You may recall President Obama’s whispered assurance, back in March of 2012, to then Russian president, Dmitry Medvedev: “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.” We are now witnessing that promised flexibility. America’s foreign policy is becoming a caricature—international affairs according to Gumby. Russian President Vladimir Putin is a mix of Joseph Stalin and Lavrenty Beria---an experienced strongman and savvy intelligence officer. He is hardly someone to be impressed by “flexibility.” Vladimir is all about power...

    The New Dominion ^ | Feb. 26, 2007 | Max Friedman
    As most of you have read or seen by now, a journalist and NBC/MSNBC media consultant named William “Bill” Arkin has created quite a stir by viciously insulting American soldiers in Iraq. He wrote at his Washington Post blog, “Early Warning: William M. Arkin on National and Homeland Security” column (1/30/07), that “… this NBC (Nightly News) report is just an ugly reminder of the price we pay for a mercenary - oops sorry, volunteer force that thinks it is doing the dirty work” re Iraq. The “report,” according to Arkin, featured “a number of soldiers (who) expressed frustration with...
  • They Called Him Punch

    They called him Punch, and he earned the sobriquet. A Marine, he came home from serving in the Pacific theater, then in the Korean Conflict, to help run the family business, which in the case of Arthur Ochs Sulzberger was the New York Times. Imagine that -- somebody with a military background running the Times. Even harder to imagine these days, when the good gray New York Times has become as pretentious as it is ideological, is that it once had a publisher with a sense of humor. Punch Sulzberger used to say his family never worried about him when...

    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration’s decision to authorize the killing by the Central Intelligence Agency of a terrorism suspect who is an American citizen has set off a debate over the legal and political limits of drone missile strikes, a mainstay of the campaign against terrorism. The notion that the government can, in effect, execute one of its own citizens far from a combat zone, with no judicial process and based on secret intelligence, makes some legal authorities deeply uneasy. To eavesdrop on the terrorism suspect who was added to the target list, the American-born radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who...

    Boycott The New York Times ^ | January 5, 2009 | Don Feder
    Here’s an idea so atrocious that that it should send shivers down the spines of those who are fighting media bias — forcing taxpayers to subsidize said bias. Many newspapers are in serious financial trouble, due to a number of factors — including alienating former subscribers with bias so blatant that it leaps off the pages. The New York Times saw its ad revenue fall 16.2% from October 2007 to October 2008. Last year, its stock lost 66.8% of its value. The paper is planning to take out a $225-million mortgage on its Manhattan headquarters to cover operating deficits. No...

    The headline on a critique in today’s New York Times says it all: “Wonderful? Sorry, George, It’s a Pitiful, Dreadful Life.” Nothing more clearly illustrates the paper’s hatred of normalcy than its revisionist perspective on “It’s A Wonderful Life.” The moral of the 1946 Capra classic — life has meaning. Even if we don’t achieve our dreams, even if our existence is seemingly hum-drum, those who lead good lives will never know how much good they’ve done. George Bailey does, by glimpsing what his world would look like if he’d never been born. He discovers (to paraphrase the film) that...

    Boycott The New York Times ^ | December 15, 2008 | Don Feder
    An article in yesterday’s New York Times by Public Editor Clark Hoyt, “Separating the Terror and the Terrorists,” is a nauseating example of the paper’s moral relativism applied to the war on terrorism. Hoyt tries to rationalize The Times’ reluctance to apply the “terrorist” label to people who take hostages, blow up bystanders and shoot 5-year-old girls in their beds. Hoyt admits “The Times is sparing in its use of ‘terrorist’” when reporting on Palestinian atrocities. In an effort to be even-handed, the paper has decided to call the murder of Jews inside the 1948 boundaries of Israel “terrorist,” but...

    The New York Times’ financial woes continue to mount, and that’s good news for America. To offset shrinking revenues, the paper plans to borrow $225 million by mortgaging its 52-story Manhattan headquarters. This should be a cause for celebration for patriots everywhere. The company’s stock lost half its value this year. According to the December 9 Financial Times, “advertising revenue at the paper fell sharply in November.” The Times owes $400 million on two revolving lines of credit. Analysts believe mortgaging its building is the only way to secure the capital it needs for 2009, which is expected to be...

    Andrew Rosenthal, editorial page editor of the New York Times, moonlights as a standup comic. Rosenthal recently told the annual conference of the Association of National Advertisers that his paper "aims to ensure opinion and news are kept separate, even as the Internet increasingly blurs the lines," the Oct. 17 edition of Advertising Age reported. Stop, you're killing me. The New York Times is to objectivity what Jack the Ripper was to women's rights. If the Times strives to keep reporting and commentary separate, you and I aren't the only ones who've missed it. Earlier this year, a Rasmussen Reports...

    An article in Advertising Age reports that The New York Times slashed its quarterly stock dividend from 23 cents in the third quarter of 2007 to 6 cents for the same period of 2008. America’s “newspaper of wretched” is in a steady - and, in some cases, steep - decline. While many factors are involved, clearly, a lot of readers are fed up with the Times’ inveterate bias, highlighted in its coverage of the 2008 campaign. With the announcement of the dividend cut, shares of New York Times stock fell 6.64% to close at $5.34 on Friday. In the past...

    In an editorial in today’s paper, The New York Times misrepresents an anti-Obama message, which it claims amounted to “character assassination.” One of its targets is an e-mailing sent by a group of Pennsylvania Jewish activists to 75,000 Jewish voters in the Keystone state, warning of the dangers of an Obama presidency. According to The Times, the e-mailing equates “a vote for Barack Obama with the ‘tragic mistake’ of Jews who ignored the warning signs of the Holocaust.” This implies the communication suggested that Obama would somehow facilitate another Holocaust. It did no such thing. The e-mailing, from a retired...
