After Attempt on Kavanaugh, NYT Won’t Give Schumer the Palin Treatment

June 11th, 2022 5:42 PM

The New York Times buried the horrible news of a confessed would-be assassin prowling outside Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home, intending to murder him for his opinions on gun control and abortion. If the Times truly treated both political parties the same, it would have criticized Sen. Chuck Schumer’s 2020 threat to Republican-appointed justices Neil Gorsuch and…

WHINY NYT: Senate Credibility in Tatters by Failing on Gun Control

June 2nd, 2022 8:58 AM

In the eyes of the New York Times, the legislative branch has now joined the judicial branch in having its credibility in tatters -- unless it upholds liberal views.

April 24th, 2022 6:22 AM

The New York Times knows the Democrats are in trouble, and they’re getting frantic. A front-page story on Friday, “G.O.P. Memo Shows Plan to Attack Democrats on Immigration,” was based on a leaked document distributed to House Republicans. The reporters seized on it to play defense attorney for the Democrats, trying to refute every piece of the memo on the party’s behalf. Reporters…

NY Times Whine: What Would Disqualify a Candidate in a GOP Primary?

April 19th, 2022 10:45 AM

In “As G.O.P. Candidates Face Accusations, Rivals Tread Carefully,” New York Times political reporter Jonathan Weisman again singled out Republicans as solely to blame for some trait that is actually a bipartisan sin. The name “Bill Clinton” somehow goes unmentioned, a media-beloved Democratic president who notoriously escaped allegations of sexual harassment and rape thanks…

NYT's Weisman Takes Dem Dictation on GOP; Romney Now Right on Russia?

March 20th, 2022 12:52 PM

New York Times reporter Jonathan Weisman is trying hard to portray the Republican Party as extremist, or at least hypocritical, concerning the Russian assault on Ukraine. He wrote “Republicans, Once Harsh Ukraine Critics, Pivot to Strong Support," suggesting "the bulk of the Republican Party [is trying] to get on the right side of history amid a brutal Russian invasion of Ukraine." So…

As Dem Polls Sag, NY Times Whines GOP 'Weaponizing' the 'Culture Wars'

March 1st, 2022 4:11 PM

It’s a pattern of bias: Whenever Democrats find themselves on the defensive politically over a divisive issue (transgender rights, mask mandates, school shutdowns, even inflation), the New York Times can be relied upon to ride to the party’s defense by flipping the issue, making the Republican Party seem like the unfair aggressor for pointing out and criticizing the controversial…
