Review: NY Times Hit Book on 'Bro' Kavanaugh Paints Sinister Picture

September 22nd, 2019 12:54 PM
It was not quite a year ago that the riveting hearing took place pitting the dueling testimonies of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford. New York Times reporter Robin Pogrebin parlayed her slanted reporting on the case and her Yale connection into a book deal with fellow reporter Kate Kelly. Both reporters contributed slanted anti-Kavanaugh reporting during the…

Boo Hoo! NBC’s Byers Complains Twitter’s ‘A Minefield for Journalists’

October 22nd, 2018 3:57 PM
Late Monday morning on NBCNews.com, former CNNer and current NBC senior media reporter Dylan Byers bemoaned how social media sites have become “a minefield for journalists” where they face “perils” such as “stray[ing] from reporting” and thus “opening news organizations to accusations of partisan bias.”

NYT Gives Kavanaugh-Hater a News Byline for 'Ice' Scoop

October 2nd, 2018 3:14 PM
Emily Bazelon is a staff writer for the New York Times Sunday Magazine, but she was lead author of the earth-shattering story that Brett Kavanaugh apparently threw ice during an altercation at a bar in New Haven, Conn. in 1985. The online headline that appeared Monday evening was explicit: “Kavanaugh Was Questioned by Police After Bar Fight in 1985.” Bazelon is also a fellow at Yale…

NY Times Builds Wall of Obstinate Leftism Around Sunday Opinion

April 4th, 2017 10:32 AM
So much for alternative points of view in the New York Times. With the news pages devoted to kneecapping the new administration, one would hope that a few right-of-center voices might at least slip into the weekend opinion sections. But the paper’s Sunday Review section is just as predictably, reflexively leftist. In fact, all you really need to read are the titles and teasers. Just for…

New York Times Wraps Up 2016 With Christmas Gifts for Democrats

December 25th, 2016 8:15 PM
Not even Christmas Day provided respite from New York Times bias: The Sunday Review was devoted to the Year in Pictures, and cast the just-concluded election as a clash of light vs. darkness. The front-page was wholly covered by a full-length photo of Donald Trump -- more accurately, Trump’s shadow -- in stark, Stygian darkness, while the back page featured a hopeful member of the Hillary…

NY Times Uses Scalia’s Passing for Lefty Labeling, Loaded Language

February 15th, 2016 8:40 PM
The New York Times news coverage upon the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was mostly respectful (which is more than can be said about the paper’s nasty editorial thrust). But the paper’s liberal bias shone through in pondering how Scalia’s death would resonate during the election year. Emily Bazelon’s Monday “news analysis" portrayed conservative…

NYT Pushes 'Undocumented' to Make Illegal's Path to Legality Easier

August 24th, 2015 9:34 AM
The first story in the August 23 New York Times Sunday magazine by staff writer Emily Bazelon, "The Unwelcome Return of 'Illegals,'" scolds conservatives for calling illegal immigrants "illegals," while again aligning the paper with left-wing amnesty activists like La Raza, who favor the term "undocumented." Bazelon also fretted about the government's…

Journalist: 9/11 Truther Movement Fruit of 'Right-wing Fringe Talk'; M

May 20th, 2014 12:35 PM
Emily Bazelon apparently has found the opening of the 9/11 Memorial Museum in lower Manhattan as a perfect excuse to suggest that conservatives are particularly prone – compared to other Americans –  to buy into the absurd conspiracy theories of the so-called 9/11 Truther movement. But the most prominent of 9/11 Truthers in the national spotlight are celebrities and media…

Slate Feminist Whips Out the Nazi Card Against Pro-life Republican

June 13th, 2013 4:00 PM
On June 11, Slate editor Emily Bazelon whipped out the Nazi card against Congressman Trent Franks.  The media site, which is an affiliate of the Washington Post, unsurprisingly went after the Republican legislator for his remarks about rape on Wednesday concerning a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks into a pregnancy. Of course, liberals tried to tie these remarks to Todd Akin…

HUH? Slate Editor: Kaitlyn Hunt Case 'Is About Gay Rights. But It’s

May 24th, 2013 4:28 PM
This is one of those stories that have you asking yourself if you’re still on planet Earth.  Emily Bazelone of Slate, a Washington Post affiliated site, wrote today that the case of Florida 18-year-old Kaitlyn Hunt’s sexual affair with a 14-year-old girl “is about gay rights. But it’s not about that.”  This isn’t Bazelon’s first foray into…

Slate Editor: 'Strong Consensus' That Dzhokhar Was 'Normal

April 19th, 2013 8:14 PM
"There's a strong consensus he was pretty normal." That's how Slate's Emily Bazelon described surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who seems to have been discovered by the police. You cannot make this stuff up. The Slate writer interviewed two family friends, who attended Tsarnaev's high school who said of him: "He was really nice,…

Slate’s Anti-Wall Street Mob Populism: 'We Should Go After Them with

April 24th, 2010 11:12 PM
Does anyone remember when the liberal intellectuals decried populism coming from the likes of Glenn Beck and other conservatives that was aimed at the direction the country is going under the leadership of President Barack Obama and the Democratic-controlled Congress? Throughout 2009, that so-called "bottom-barrel demagogy," as Troy Patterson called it in an post for Slate one year ago…

Whiff of Eugenics: Ginsburg Tells NYT Roe Was About 'Populations That

July 9th, 2009 1:00 PM
In a July 7 New York Times Magazine article ("The Place of Women on the Court"; HT to an e-mailer) apparently scheduled to appear in its July 12 print edition (based on its URL), Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg told the Times's Emily Bazelon that "at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don't…
