July 14th, 2020 12:52 PM

The New York Times’ gross double standards on what constitutes acceptable opinion has been demonstrated once again. An opinion piece from Republican Sen.

The New York Times right-leaning columnist Ross Douthat used his perch for a long piece about the paper’s recent ideological meltdown over an op-ed from a Republican senator: “The Tom Cotton Op-Ed and the Cultural Revolution -- How liberalism, and the liberal media, are changing before our eyes.” He kills the Times with kindness.

Judge Throws Out Sarah Palin's Defamation Suit Against the NY Times

August 29th, 2017 10:55 PM
Sarah Palin’s defamation lawsuit against The New York Times was thrown out on Tuesday, not because the Times didn’t recklessly accuse Palin of inciting the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords.
