NYT Loves FBI: SWAT Teams, Surveillance, Pressuring Twitter All Cool

January 2nd, 2023 6:30 AM

For decades the New York Times used the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a symbol of the fears of oppressive government surveillance. The Times has cheerfully tossed all that history aside to engage in knee-jerk defense of the agency -- when it’s Republicans doing the criticizing. Reporters Adam Goldman and Alan Feuer raced to defend the paper’s favorite domestic…

Partisan NY Times Blames 'Right-Wing Rhetoric' for Violence

August 14th, 2022 8:05 PM

One co-lead story in Sunday’s New York Times regarding the aftermath of the FBI raid on Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residency screamed “As Right-Wing Rhetoric Escalates, So Do Threats and Violence.” According to reporter Alan Feuer, this violence is taking place almost exclusively on the right, the actual fact of violence by Black Lives Matter riots and ANTIFA notwithstanding.

BLM-Loving NYTimes Finds Vax Mandate Protests 'Dangerous,' 'Violent'

February 27th, 2022 9:08 PM

After its smear-filled coverage of the Canadian truckers’ protest over anti-vaccine mandates, now shuttered by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s authoritarian government, the New York Times is stoking fears of similar protests in the United States and New Zealand. “A Truck Caravan With Far-Right Links Heads to Washington, D.C." The American truckers certainly didn’t get the soft Black…

NYT Embraces Avenatti’s Jail Claims, Ignored Those of Capitol Rioters

January 14th, 2022 7:17 PM

It’s clear the New York Times is selectively concerned about jail conditions for politically controversial inmates and defendants -- depending on whether they are pro- or anti- Donald Trump. Michael Avenatti, the former media hero turned disgraced anti-Trump lawyer who also crusaded against now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh, was tried and convicted for trying to extort Nike out of $25…

NY Times Displays BIG Double Standard on 1/6 and 9/11 Conspiracists

December 24th, 2021 10:03 AM

New York Times reporter Alan Feuer made the front page Wednesday with his investigation of a former Army colonel who wrongly thinks Donald Trump was robbed of reelection by voting machines in 2020: “Phil Waldron's Unlikely Role in Pushing Baseless Election Claims.” Feuer once reported favorably on a convention of 9-11 Truthers and rehashed their crazed convictions that the Bush…

Nasty NYT Conflates GOP Border Control, School Protests with Neo-Nazis

November 26th, 2021 9:29 AM

New York Times reporter Alan Feuer made the front page on Thanksgiving with his “news analysis” equating neo-Nazi marchers with border control measures, school board protesters, even Kaepernick critics: “Charlottesville’s Extremist Theories Echo in the Mainstream Right.” Feuer promoted dangerous left-wing extremism back in June 2006 from a convention of 9-11 truthers.  

FACE-PALM: NYT Can’t Make Mind Up About Urban Crime Wave

September 3rd, 2020 9:17 PM

The New York Times, when it’s not blaming President Trump for riots in Democratic-controlled cities, is making excuses for those hapless Democrats who run those crime-ridden cities, who have no ability to control what actually happens on the streets of their cities. Mayors are so powerless, it’s a wonder people bother to have them! Reporter Emily Badger whined about Trump “Making…

NY Times Can’t Deny Rioting, Now Blames Trump For It in Lead Story

August 31st, 2020 10:29 PM

The media can no longer deny the continuous rioting in American cities every night by left-wing thugs. With Joe Biden at last weighing in, the story has become impossible to avoid, so the press is instead shamelessly pivoting, acknowledging the violence in the streets only to portraying President Trump as the instigator. Monday’s New York Times lead story appeared under slanted…

Name That Party, NY Times: Charges for GOPer Collins v. Democrat Brown

August 9th, 2018 4:03 PM
Thursday’s New York Times showed itself all too eager to use new charges against Republican Rep. Chris Collins of New York to help Democrats. The front-page story was accompanied by an over-the-fold photograph of U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman announcing the charges against Collins, which the photo caption took care to identify as a Republican. The paper piled on with a story inside by Goldmacher…

NYT Gushes Over Hannity-Exposing Kimba Wood vs. 'Right-Wing Media'

April 20th, 2018 9:08 AM
Thursday’s New York Times featured some unseemly gushing over Democratic Judge Kimba Wood, whose decision outed Fox News host Sea Hannity as a client of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, under a headline showcasing extraneous praise for Wood: “On Bench for Cohen Case: ‘The Judicial Equivalent of Teddy Roosevelt." Reporters Alan Feuer and Benjamin Weiser opened by irresponsibly lumping in the…

NYT Poses Muslim Feminist as Target of Right-Wing Hate, Skips Her Own

May 28th, 2017 5:59 PM
Muslim “feminist” Linda Sarsour has gotten criticism from conservatives for her vulgar, sexist, intolerant remarks about Muslim apostate Ayaan Hirsi Ali (still the target of death threats), as well as her blandished descriptions of Sharia law and public appearances with convicted terrorists. Eli Rosenberg profiled her before her controversial commencement address at the City University of New…

NYT's Feuer Hurls Psych Slurs at Giuliani for Trump Support

November 14th, 2016 4:27 PM
Sunday’s New York Times went from positioning race-baiter Al Sharpton as a credible voice of anti-Trump dissent, to hailing the wisdom of another liberal MSNBC host: Chris Matthews. Matthews' horrified reaction to Trump-supporting Rudy Giuliani led off a contemptuous profile of the former NYC mayor, written by the eccentric reporter Alan Feuer: “America’s Mayor Rolls the Dice.” Feuer threw around…

After TX Terror, NYT Arrogantly Parses 'Free Speech vs. Hate Speech'

May 7th, 2015 8:00 AM
There is a grievous double standard at the heart of the New York Times' coverage of stories at the intersection of free speech and terrorism. The paper has self-righteously refused to reprint "offensive" cartoons of Muhammad, while refusing to admit why: not out of respect for people of faith, but for fear of reprisal. The proof? The same paper has eagerly reprinted offensive anti-Christian art,…

New York Times a Prime Carrier of Unfounded Ebola Assurances by Obama

October 20th, 2014 11:33 AM
The New York Times is one of the media's prime carriers of sickly White House assurances about Ebola, dictating unfounded claims that it has the disease under control, while dismissing calls from Republicans and health experts for banning flights out of infected countries as paranoid, unscientific overreaction.
