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…

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…

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…

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…

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-…

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.

Survivalists: Paranoid Right-Wingers or Diverse Urbanites? New York Ti

January 31st, 2013 3:04 PM
Survivalists: Paranoid right-wingers or a shrewd, far-thinking, and diverse urbanites? The New York Times can't decide. Editorial board member Lawrence Downes' Thursday morning post, "Jesus, Freedom and Guns," used a YouTube video from a left-winger to mock gun-rights supporters as Christian paranoids fearing government tyranny: Here is a video shot at a gun-rights rally on…

Occupy Movement All Over the Sunday New York Times, from Three-Kid Sum

July 16th, 2012 3:38 PM
It was all Occupy Wall Street all the time in Sunday's New York Times, with no less than four favorable references to the left-wing sit-in scattered throughout the paper. The Tea Party movement certainly hasn't permeated the pages of the Times in such friendly fashion. Meanwhile, the paper continues to downplay or ignore violence committed by the Occupy movement. The Times did not…

10 Years On: The New York Times and

September 9th, 2011 4:17 PM
In the wake of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, New York Times reporters overcame enormous danger and duress to perform often-heroic feats of journalism, as proven by the Pulitzer Prize winning “Portraits of Grief” series, which commemorated the lives of every single victim of the terrorist attacks. But in the months and years that followed the paper reverted to partisan…

Birthers vs. Truthers: The New York Times's Double Standard on Conspi

April 26th, 2011 11:03 AM
Real estate mogul Donald Trump, acting like a presidential candidate, is garnering attention by latching on to the “birther” issue -- the discredited notion that President Obama was not born in Hawaii but in another country, thus making him ineligible for the presidency. The New York Times ran a poll April 22 that asked: “Do you think Barack Obama was born in the United States…

July 27th, 2009 2:59 PM
Anti-Bush 9-11 "Truthers" get a fair hearing from the New York Times, but anti-Obama "Birthers" are harshly criticized, and Rush Limbaugh is of course to blame.Media reporter Brian Stelter's Saturday Business story, "A Dispute Over Obama's Birth Lives On in the Media," questioned those questioning Obama's birth certificate, his citizenship, and his resulting…
