April 8th, 2019 11:39 AM
The New York Times hosted one of its "Times Talks" on April 2, promising "a wide-ranging and candid discussion on press freedom in an age of alternative facts" with executive editor Dean Baquet and David E. McCraw, the paper’s top newsroom lawyer. The most embarrassing part was a discussion of why, oh why Donald Trump's rhetoric about the press "resonates" with people. McCraw touted Peter Arnett…

For those who either didn’t watch Tuesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight or want to relive it, The Federalist’s Sean Davis made a rare TV appearance and absolutely lambasted the liberal media for their years-long narrative that the President and his team colluded with Russians, calling this falsehood “probably the biggest, most consequential screw up of the last 25 to 50 years.”

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 the dimmest of wits on the most unscrupulous of networks.…

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?"

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 — "venial" and…

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 with far too broad a brush…

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 not 'we,' I'm a journalist."

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 reporting in 2015 on New York City nail salons was the…
