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…

NY Times Cries for Innocent Congressional Dems Foiled by 'Cult' GOP

December 19th, 2021 10:20 PM

Two New York Times stories on Sunday portrayed the Republican Party as mired in extremism and partisanship, overwhelming supposedly non-ideological Democrats who just want to get vital things done. Jonathan Weisman’s year in review for Congress, “Congress Ends ‘Horrible Year’ With Divisions as Bitter as Ever,” began dramatically and didn’t let up in its painting of the Republican…

NYT Puzzled Why ‘Merely Rich Rush' to Defend ‘Fabulously' Rich

December 12th, 2021 5:56 PM

New York Times reporter Jonathan Weisman is once again pushing taxes on “the ultrarich” who deserve to get soaked. He found an interesting story, libertarian hedge fund son Adam Wyden vs. his hard-left father, Sen. Ron Wyden. The reporter seemed puzzled why the rich son wouldn’t want to pile taxes on even richer people like Elon Musk. 

NYT: No Worries! Unconstitutional Tax Only ‘Stakes Out New Territory’

October 27th, 2021 11:30 PM

New York Times congressional reporter Jonathan Weisman offered some strong “soak the rich” energy in his optimistic analysis of the Democratic Party’s latest money-raising proposal, “How Democrats Would Tax Billionaires to Pay for Their Agenda -- The plan stakes out new territory by putting levies on unrealized gains in the value of billionaires’ liquid assets, such as stocks, bonds…

NY Times Loses It Over 'Enemy' Dems Opposing Biden, Pouncing GOP

September 9th, 2021 4:30 PM

The front page of Wednesday’s New York Times warned “Big Business Mobilizing to Battle Tax Proposals.” The text box: “Democrats’ Ambitions for Social Spending Are on the Line.” Trillions of dollars of new spending, in fact, as well as tax hikes on “the rich.” Reporters Jonathan Weisman, Alan Rappeport, and Jim Tankersley clearly took the side of President Biden and liberal big-…

Hypocrite NY Times Ignores Vaccine Skepticism of Nets, Blames GOP

July 21st, 2021 5:25 PM

The New York Times is suffering a pandemic of partisan vaccination politics. The latest shot came in Wednesday’s paper, with Jonathan Weisman and Sheryl Gay Stolberg reporting “G.O.P. Sees Virus Surge on Its Turf but Lets Vaccine Skepticism Spread.” The text box affixed blame: “Republicans lag in inoculations but put the blame on others.” But nowhere in the paper’s constant criticism…

NOW They Tell Us? NY Times Admits Dem Voting Bill 'Flawed' Mess

June 24th, 2021 10:15 AM

The Democrats’ all-encompassing “voting rights” bill, the so-called For the People Act, formally known as H.R.1, is dead in Congress for now. The New York Times lead story on Wednesday by Nicholas Fandos explained: “G.O.P Blockade in Senate Thwarts Voting Rights Bill – After 50-50 Tie, Democrats Pin Their Hopes on a Push to Abolish the Filibuster.” The Times loved the…

Cranky NYT Lashes Out at Right, Claims Virus 'Far More' Trump's Fault

June 19th, 2021 5:45 PM

The front page of Friday’s New York Times featured the presumably rehabilitated Jonathan Weisman, who spent a long time in the paper's doghouse for offending radical Democrats. His latest story is surely safe territory: “With Midterms in Sight, ‘Crisis’ Is Watchword for Republicans.” The text box: “A Lesson of Trump Era: Outrage Works.” Nothing to offend Democrats of any kind here,…

New York Times Demotes Deputy DC Editor for Upsetting Radical Dems

August 14th, 2019 1:30 PM

Last week, The New York Times bowed and scraped before the Left when their readers erupted in outrage over the bland, objective headline "Trump Urges Unity Vs. Racism." This week, the Times demoted deputy Washington editor Jonathan Weisman after he upset the Left with several tweets about the hardcore "Justice Democrats" and an angry email to a radical feminist who writes for his paper.

NY Times Tries to Motivate Black Vote Against Racist Trump on Page One

August 4th, 2019 6:51 PM
Reporters Reid Epstein and Jonathan Martin devoted 1,800 words on the New York Times Sunday front page to getting out the black vote against Donald Trump in 2020, in “Trump’s Words Fuel Racial Strife. How Will Black Voters Respond?” Along the way, they issued a conspiracy-agent theory about how Trump is trying to stifle blacks from voting Democrat by...mentioning his criminal justice reform…

NY Times Fiercely Defends Tlaib Again, Hits GOP Critics

May 14th, 2019 12:07 PM
New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg handled the latest disturbing anti-Israel outburst from a controversial Democratic freshmen rushing to Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s defense in Tuesday’s edition under a headline that reduced the controversy to a partisan squabble: “A ‘Calming Feeling,’ a Furor and a  New Front in the War Over Anti-Semitism.” Tlaib made a bizarre and…

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. Ilhan Omar. The suspiciously regretful-sounding “Democrats Let Their Message Escape Them” appeared on the front of Thursday’s edition. Indeed, the reporters…

NYT's Weisman, Blind to Left Anti-Semitism, Hits Trump, 'Bully' Israel

January 7th, 2019 10:00 AM
New York Times deputy Washington editor Jonathan Weisman made the Sunday Review with the dramatically titled “American Jews and Israeli Jews Break Up.” Weisman is author of the book (((Semitism))) Being Jewish in America in the Age of Trump, which blames Trump and the alt-right for a rise in U.S. anti-Semitism. But he is unwilling to acknowledge anti-Semitism on the left, as Ben Shapiro found in…

Horrified NYT Fears Trump Will Define Transgenders ‘Out of Existence’

October 23rd, 2018 7:35 AM
A scoop in the lead slot of Monday’s New York Times was horrified that the Trump administration may resume following scientific procedure by defining sex in biological terms based on one’s genitalia at birth -- or, as the Times insisted, defining transgenders “out of existence”: “Trump May Limit How Government Defines One’s Sex – Gender Listed At Birth – Threat to the Protections of Those Who…
