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.

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.

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,…

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.

New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg handled the latest disturbing anti-Israel outburst from a controversial Democratic freshmen representative...by rushing to Rep.

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…

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…

The plea from New York Times reporter Jonathan Weisman appeared in the Sunday Review: “Missing in the Fight Against Anti-Semitism.” The online headline: “Anti-Semitism Is Rising. Why Aren’t American Jews Speaking Up?” But Weisman focused solely and dubiously on controversial rightists and missed several recent examples of Democrats lining up with Louis Farrakhan.…

NYT's Weisman: Don't Report ISIS Claiming Credit for 'Small' Attacks

June 10th, 2017 10:13 AM
The idea that reporting the facts about terror attacks encourages more terrorism — an idea ridiculously advanced by the likes of former Secretary of State John Kerry during the Obama administration — has apparently gained some traction in the establishment press. On Tuesday, bothered by a "FOX NEWS ALERT" (in, oh my gosh, all caps) that "ISIS claims responsibility…

Hypocrite NYT Hits Trump for Nazi Comparison; Did Same Thing to Trump

January 12th, 2017 2:10 PM
When Donald Trump mentioned Nazi Germany in reference to a lurid document floating around U.S. intelligence agencies, the New York Times was shocked and appalled -- and deeply hypocritical, given the eagerness of the paper's reporters, editors, and columnists to make those same comparisons against Donald Trump.

October 29th, 2015 10:25 PM
New York Times political reporters Nicholas Confessore, Alan Rappaport, and Maggie Haberman live blogged the third GOP debate, and while the NYT didn't have a problem with the slanted questions from CNBC, they were quite perturbed over the counterattacks from the candidates, a pile-on jump-started by a lengthy and detailed off-the-cuff condemnation by Ted Cruz: "...candidates whine about…

NYT Sunday: 'Dread' as Right Wing Hungers for 'Strident Conservative'

September 27th, 2015 5:08 PM
After the shock resignation of John Boehner, should you fear and dread the rise of a revitalized right wing in Congress?
