January 10th, 2018 4:34 PM
The New York Times may be at its most liberal on the immigration issue, and when President Trump seemed to warm to the idea of a path to citizenship for some illegals, reporters abruptly warmed to him, at least compared to the “hard-line anti-immigration activists” in his party.

President Trump referred to liberal Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a potential 2020 presidential rival, as “Pocahontas” while honoring Navajo code talkers from World War II, and White House reporter Julie Hirschfeld Davis was not having it.

September 28th, 2017 5:06 PM
President Trump outlined his tax cut proposal, generating two lead stories in Thursday’s New York Times under the banner headline “Sweeping Trump Tax Plan Vague on Details and Cost.” Economics reporter Binyamin Appelbaum’s “news analysis" was hostile: “Windfall Would Go to the Wealthiest.” The online headline: “Trump Tax Plan Benefits Wealthy,…

NYT Plays ‘Nationalist’ Card on Trump Overseas, Whines He Attacked US

May 27th, 2017 4:36 PM
More euphemistic, politically correct terminology about illegal immigrants from the New York Times, as Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Ron Nixon reported in Friday’s paper.

NYT on Victim Hunt as Trump’s ‘Improbable’ First Budget Plan Debuts

May 23rd, 2017 1:07 PM
The New York Times was single-minded in its attack on President Trump’s first budget proposal.

Instead the Times went on a nationwide person-hunt for potential victims of the hypothetical budget cuts, based on current spending levels that have been inflated…

NY Times Fronts Tired Dem Talking Points to Attacks Trump’s Tax Plan

April 14th, 2017 10:58 AM
After a week of mild coverage towards Trump’s military actions overseas, apparently the news media couldn’t take it anymore and started grasping at straws again for issues they could bash Trump over.

January 7th, 2017 4:02 PM

November 19th, 2016 1:42 PM
The two stories in the lead slot of Saturday’s New York Times under the umbrella headline “Trump Selects Loyalists On Right Flank to Fill National Security Posts” both hammered Trump’s “hard-line” national security choices.
