Ignorant NYTimes Lead:‘Gun Sellers Stoke Fears to Boost Weapon Sales'
June 20th, 2022 9:38 AM
“Gun Sellers Stoke Fears to Boost Weapon Sales” is an alarmist 2,800-word investigation that led Sunday’s New York Times. It started with a little light mindreading about Kyle Rittenhouse. But the worst offense against fairness was the breathless portrayal of the fact gun companies commit marketing, like every other business sector: "Whatever the source of Americans’ sense of unease,…
NYTimes Mad at GOP ‘Angrily Lecturing and Interrupting…Jurist’ Jackson
March 26th, 2022 10:59 AM
The front of Thursday’s New York Times covered the last day of questioning for Biden’s Supreme Court nominee, and delivered more condemnation of Republicans: “Ketanji Brown Jackson Survives a Final Bruising Day of Questions.” The Times barely grazed the fact that Judge Jackson refused to define what a woman is (despite all the press hailing of Jackson as the first black woman…

March 7th, 2022 5:12 PM
The New York Times again reliably rides to the defense of overbearing federal government agencies. Reporter Glenn Thrush on Saturday defended the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms in “A.T.F., Agency Crucial to Biden’s Gun Plan, Struggles to Push for Reform.” He picked on the bureau’s acting director for being civil at a gun industry convention.

November 28th, 2021 12:12 PM
Career criminal Darrell Brooks sped through the barricades of a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, killing six and injuring dozens, and the New York Times on Saturday engaged in damage control for the left-wing “bail reform” movement nationwide.

Galling: NY Times Front Page Quotes Bigoted Al Sharpton on Rittenhouse
November 21st, 2021 10:32 PM
After Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of murder charges, the front page of Sunday’s New York Times displayed reporter Glenn Thrush’s questionable “news analysis." Thrush, who is pro-gun control and a fan of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, zoomed in on a minor facet of the trial, when the judge tossed out a gun charge: “...it was a telling reminder that the…
NY Times Page One Trashes Second Amendment, Worries About Poor ATF
May 4th, 2021 2:43 PM
The New York Times gave the full investigative treatment to defend its newest favorite intrusive government agency, the poor, downtrodden Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), in charge of enforcing U.S. gun laws. The investigation made Monday’s front page: “How the Firearms Lobby Hamstrings the A.T.F.” The Second Amendment was left unmentioned in the long…
NYT Laments Omar’s Anti-Semitism...Distracting From Dem Legislation
March 7th, 2019 1:29 PM
New York Times reporters Glenn Thrush and Sheryl Gay Stolberg kept up with the ongoing (and for Democrats, seemingly never-ending) saga over the constant spew of anti-Semitic statements emanating from controversial new Democratic Rep.

NYT Goes Easy on Wacky Green Deal: ‘Liberal Ambition...Breathtaking'
February 8th, 2019 4:02 PM
The New York Times deemphasized the truly ridiculously implausible and radical proposals in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez six-page “Green New Deal” when it gave it front-page play Friday: “Unveiling a ‘Green New Deal,’ And Ambition on a Vast Scale.” Instead of showing skepticism, the reporters gave the plan points for ambition and used euphemisms to describe the outlandish proposals: "Liberal…
NY Times: GOP ‘Stoking Paranoia Over Stolen Elections,’ Applauded Dems
November 19th, 2018 1:17 PM
After then-candidate Donald Trump issued an off-the-cup hypothetical about not respecting the election results, the New York Times hysterically compared him to a dictator. So it’s striking how accepting the Times is of liberal Democrats who actually do fail to accept the disappointing results elections. On the front page of Monday’s New York Times, political reporters Glenn Thrush and Jeremy…

May 9th, 2018 4:51 PM
“Budget Hawk” Mick Mulvaney is the latest conservative in the crosshairs of the New York Times. The front of Wednesday’s edition featured a very long, quite hostile profile by Glenn Thrush and Alan Rappeport of Mulvaney, Trump’s budget director and current head of the Obama-era agency, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau: “Budget Hawk Hones Claws at Consumer Bureau.” When he wasn't a…

Lefty Writer Links Alleged Media Sexual Misconduct, Hillary’s E-Mails
November 30th, 2017 3:17 PM
Matt Lauer. Charlie Rose. Bill O’Reilly. Mark Halperin. Any one of those guys is just like the others in two important and intertwined ways, suggested Salon’s Marcotte on Wednesday: each is an alleged sexual harasser who has lost at least one high-profile media gig as a result, and each had a sexist fixation on Hillary Clinton’s “nothing-burger” e-mails.

November 20th, 2017 9:57 PM
Monday brought a deluge of new sexual harassment allegations implicating high profile men across the worlds of politics and journalism.
