NYT Describes 'Horror of Being Governed' by 'Shallow' Fox & Friends
April 9th, 2018 4:00 PM
The mainstream media’s contempt for “Trump’s favorite network” Fox News, and especially the morning show Fox & Friends, continues apace. A particularly virulent and condescending example is Charles Blow’s Monday column for the New York Times, “Horror of Being Governed by ‘Fox & Friends.’” Blow spewed: "America is being governed by…
Brian Stelter's 'Fox & Friends'-Style Softballs to New York Times Boss
April 9th, 2018 11:19 AM
CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter interviewed New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet on Sunday. None of his questions or statements were the slightest bit challenging to Baquet or the Times. They sounded like an interview that Times public relations execs dream about. "Oh Dean, your paper is so true. And so profitable. And yet, they criticize you? Are they out of control?…

John Stossel Explains Why 'I Hate The New York Times'
December 6th, 2017 10:28 PM
John Stossel of Fox News penned a column titled “I Hate The New York Times.” Stossel says he reads the Times because "my neighbors read it, and I need to understand what they think. Sadly, many think dumb things because most every day the Times runs deceitful, biased stories and headlines that mislead."
Lefty NYT Editor Baquet Attacks O'Keefe Videos for 'Mortal Sin'
October 18th, 2017 2:51 AM
Last week, the first two videos released by James O'Keefe's Project Veritas exposed how a now apparently former New York Times employee colluded with the biggest players in social media and online video to favor its content over others. The videos drove a furious Dean Baquet, the paper's executive editor, to criticize that employee and O'Keefe using, of all things, religious terms…
NY Times in Denial on Liberal Bias: We Play ‘Straight Down the Middle'
October 14th, 2017 10:14 PM
White House correspondents Maggie Haberman and Peter Baker were joined in Washington, D.C., by executive editor Dean Baquet in a conversation on covering the Trump administration, moderated by media columnist Jim Rutenberg on October 12.

NY Times Strikes Out in Claiming Conservative 'Veneration' For Putin
July 15th, 2017 2:29 PM
There's fake news, and then there's fake analysis. Jeremy Peters at the New York Times published a particularly odious example of the latter ("Reverence for Putin on the Right Buys Trump Cover") Friday evening (for Saturday's print edition). Longtime blogger and particularly effective Time critic Tom Maguire had this succinct but understated take: "He (Peters) paints…
The Royal We: Top NY Times Editor Accidentally Admits He's On the Left
June 3rd, 2017 6:55 PM
Chuck Ross at the Daily Caller harped on something New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet said Wednesday at the Recode conference in California. In discussing the Times editorial pages -- and the liberal reader anger over signing up Bret Stephens from The Wall Street Journal -- he used the royal "We" in describing the Left, until he caught himself, and "I'm…
NYT’s Nir, Once Protested for Hit Piece, Proudly Covers Pro-NYT Rally
February 28th, 2017 10:58 PM
On Monday the New York Times’ Sarah Maslin Nir covered a rare bird, a pro-media rally in (where else?) Manhattan, which just happened to bestow particular affection upon her own newspaper: “Protesters Gather to Defend the News Media.” The text box: “Resisting Trump’s vilification of the press as the ‘enemy.’” Coincidentally, Nir’s shoddy…
CNN's Stelter Tosses Softballs to NY Times Editor: Is Trump Dangerous?
February 27th, 2017 8:38 AM
Talk about softball pitching. CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter interviewed New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet on Sunday, and set him up to boast that the Times has never been hotter and that President Trump hates them because he has this "dangerous" tendency to hate newspapers who hold him accountable.
Stelter didn't point out that the Times endorsed Hillary Clinton…
Extensive NYT Study Calls for Job Cuts, Diversity...Same Old Politics
January 18th, 2017 8:59 AM
If its frantic anti-Trump post-victory coverage hasn't given it away, a new internal report from the New York Times made clear the journalistic organization has failed to learned anything from Trump’s election victory. While the 8,700-word report and an accompanying memo from the brass emphasized the need to improve the race and gender diversity of the paper (but with fewer editors), it…
NYT Brass Say Sorry for Blowing Vote, As Liberal ‘Narrative’ Crumbles
November 12th, 2016 7:01 PM
After Donald Trump’s victory shocked a media that was confidently and happily predicting a safe, historic win for Hillary Clinton, the New York Times seems to dimly recognize it has a credibility problem. Times media writer Jim Rutenberg noted in a front-page mea culpa on behalf of both his paper and his industry Thursday: “Most ominously, it came in the form of canceled subscriptions…
Bozell & Graham Column: The New York Times, Savaging Its Enemies
October 5th, 2016 8:27 AM
On October 2, The New York Times published an admittedly “fragmentary” front-page story about Donald Trump’s taxes. Through these pages, the Times reported Trump claimed a $915 million loss, which could – emphasis on the “could” – have allowed Trump to avoid paying federal taxes for “up to 18 years.”
The Times was typically harsh in tone. The…
