A Benign NY Times View of the 'Slaughter' House Rule to Pass Obama-Car

March 16th, 2010 4:16 PM
Eternally optimistic New York Times pro-Obama-care reporter David Herszenhorn's Tuesday morning post managed to make the desperate proposal by House Democrats to pass a massive federal expansion of health care entitlement spending without actually voting on the legislation sound like an innocuous procedural wrinkle: “Passing Health Care Legislation, Tucked in a Rule.”According to a plan by…

NY Times Whitewashes Sen. Whitehouse's Despicable Comments, But Goes A

December 21st, 2009 4:54 PM
In a story posted on nytimes.com Sunday night, reporters Carl Hulse and David Herszenhorn found that the “Senate Debate on Health Care Exacerbates Partisanship.” As usual, the Times only finds partisanship taking place on behalf of the Republican Party. Most incredibly, the two reporters either missed or ignored the most inflammatory comments issued on the Senate floor on Sunday, when Democratic…

NY Times Calls Joe Lieberman 'Capitol Hill's Master Infuriator' for Ob

December 15th, 2009 5:07 PM
The New York Times cherishes moderate Republicans who make trouble for their party, like John McCain pre-campaign 2008. But the paper takes quite a different tone with Democrats (or ex-Democrats who caucus with the Democrats) who thwart liberal wishes. The Times was clearly peeved with Sen. Joe Lieberman in Tuesday's front-page story about the tense health-care debate in the Senate, “Lieberman…

NY Times Headline on McCain Criticizing Obama: 'The Crankiness of the

December 8th, 2009 2:44 PM
New York Times health care cheerleader-reporter David Herszenhorn seems unhappy that Republicans continue to oppose Obama-care -- especially John McCain, who Obama beat in the 2008 election. Herszenhorn really “cranked” up the melodrama (and old man insults?) in his Monday morning post on the Times's “Prescriptions” blog, “The Crankiness of the Defeated," turning a hum-drum event -- the 73-…

Obama victory on health care reform is just around the corner!

NY Times Boasts of a 'Republican Trophy Case' for Obama on Health Care

October 6th, 2009 3:57 PM
Prospects for Obama-care just keep getting better and better. At least they are in the rather over-excitable world of New York Times health reporter David Herszenhorn. After Obama's address to Congress last month he confidently proclaimed the speech to be a "clear turning-point in the health care debate." And then nothing continued to happen. Yet Herszenhorn remains undaunted. On…

NY Times Leaves Out Dems Speech Suppression, but Touts Lefty Actor's P

September 23rd, 2009 6:28 PM
The New York Times's health care priorities were on display in Wednesday's paper. While a parody ad by liberal comedian Will Ferrell and left-wing MoveOn.org was considered newsworthy, suppression of free speech by the Obama administration was left out. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky went on the Senate floor Tuesday and called out the Obama administration for using a federal…

NY Times: Sen. Ensign Swiftly Identified as GOP, Disgraced Dems Not ID

June 17th, 2009 3:34 PM
In his Wednesday brief, "Senator Says He Had Affair With An Aide," New York Times reporter David Herszenhorn let us know by the fourth word that U.S. Senator John Ensign of Nevada, the senator who confessed to the extramarital affair, is a Republican. In paragraph four, Herszenhorn poured on the salt, bringing up Ensign's former membership in Promise Keepers, a Christian ministry that…
