December 18th, 2021 2:30 PM

After years of ideologically tinged Supreme Court decisions on gay marriage and campaign finance that pleased the left, suddenly the left is horrified if some those sloppy, politicized decisions may be thrown out.Linda Greenhouse, a former Supreme Court reporter for the New York Times, still opines for the paper, and she is on a jihad against the current Court, now with…

December 17th, 2021 11:22 AM

New York Times Supreme Court reporter Adam Liptak is once again suggesting that the court must uphold the (constitutionally non-existent) right to abortion if it wishes to maintain credibility with the public (although abortion isn’t actually popular with the public) in “With Roe at Risk, Justices Explore a New Way to Question Precedents.” Liptak's sympathy for the bad ruling (…

Pathetic: Roe Under Fire, NYT Again Finds SCOTUS Credibility at Stake

December 5th, 2021 5:21 PM

Adam Liptak, Supreme Court reporter for the New York Times, sent up a warning flare for the right-leaning Supreme Court: Don’t mess with Roe v. Wade.

NYT Warns Chief Justice:Go Left on Abortion or Face Credibility Crisis

October 4th, 2021 10:43 PM

As a new term begins for the Supreme Court, Monday’s New York Times lead story by reporter Adam Liptak threw a not-so-subtle hint to Chief Justice John Roberts: Rule the right way on Mississippi’s new abortion law that bars most abortions after 15 weeks, or see the court’s credibility crumble. The Court’s “legitimacy” is a new concern for the media, which for decades were used to…

Column: Should Judges Always Honor Crusading Liberal Media?

April 23rd, 2021 5:56 AM

New York Times legal reporter Adam Liptak recently sounded the alarm about “The Supreme Court’s Increasingly Dim View of the News Media.” Naturally, he was upset that some conservative judges aren’t fond of the New York Times vs. Sullivan decision, which makes it nearly impossible for public figures to sue media outlets for libel, since you have to establish a mind-reading…

NYT WHINES: SCOTUS Is Weaponizing 1st Amendment to Protect Religion!

April 7th, 2021 10:45 PM

The New York Times invariably hails liberal Supreme Court rulings on gay marriage, abortion, and opposing big money in politics.

NYT SCOTUS Hypocrisy: Barrett’s ‘Deflection,’ Kagan 'Sticks to Script'

October 16th, 2020 1:05 PM

As Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court moves briskly forward, the New York Times which has already demonstrated stark labeling bias when discussing Barrett’s supporters and her opponents conservatives-to-liberal labeling disparity in previous stories, led off its Wednesday issue with petulance.

NYT Calls Trump’s Vote-by-Mail Fraud Claim ‘False,’ Saw ‘Fraud’ in '12

April 11th, 2020 2:38 PM
The New York Times sounded awfully confident: “Falsehoods And Facts On Voting By Mail – Trump Claims High Risk Of Fraud. He’s Wrong,” by Stephanie Saul and Reid Epstein. Which makes it incredibly hypocritical that the paper made the opposite argument in 2012, one they now call “false," with reporter Adam Liptak writing, "The flaws of absentee voting raise…

NYTimes Suddenly Finds (Pro-Life) Sanctuary Cities a Problem

March 5th, 2020 7:35 PM
Suddenly, “sanctuary cities” are a problem worthy of front-page coverage in the New York Times -- but only if they are pro-life  places that are opposed to abortion clinics. Reporter Dionne Searcey made Wednesday’s front page with her report keyed to a city council meeting in Texas. Note the hostile choice of words in in the headline: "‘Sanctuary Cities’…

NY Times Sees ‘Rising Star’ Dems vs. Controversial GOP Hacks

December 6th, 2019 5:15 PM
New York Times impeachment testimony coverage on Thursday almost completely ignored the labored, pseudo-clever mean pun from law professor Pamela Karlan, who bizarrely named Trump’s 13-year-old son Barron to make some unrelated point. The controversy, which inflamed Republicans and even made some liberals cringe, was relegated to the last two paragraphs of the paper’s large front-page…

October 1st, 2019 2:44 PM
New York Times Supreme Court beat reporter Adam Liptak used his “Sidebar” analysis to lapse into liberal judicial activist mode, praising Obama-appointed Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s unjudicial public opposition to the death penalty, “In Death Penalty Cases, Sotomayor Is Alone in ‘Bearing Witness.’” She was praised for maintaining "a sort of vigil in…

NYT: Gerrymandering GOP ‘Embraced Rule-Breaking As a Political Tactic'

June 29th, 2019 10:28 PM
The Supreme Court made two important political rulings this week -- on “gerrymandering” and a proposed citizenship question for the U.S. Census, and the New York Times gave them lead story status Friday under the banner headline, “Court, Ruling 5-4, Gives Green Light To Gerrymander.” Reporters Michael Wines portrayed Democrats as victims of Republican perfidy: "...the…

NY Times Implies Impeachment Historic Responsibility, Disagreed in '99

April 25th, 2019 12:51 PM
As Democrats make hay out of the potential “obstruction of justice” details in the Mueller report and ponder impeachment proceedings, the New York Times is taking a much more enthusiastic line on impeaching a president than it did the last time it was done, to Democrat Bill Clinton, in 1999. Sheryl Gay Stolberg and Nicholas Fandos reported on Thursday’s front page under a…
