September 2nd, 2020 5:35 PM

The New York Times’ front-page “news analysis” by Peter Baker and Maggie Haberman, “Fanning Strife With Kenosha In His Sights,” continued the paper’s pathetic pivot from ignoring violence at the “mostly peaceful” demonstrations in U.S. cities to blaming it on Trump, who is visiting Kenosha, Wisconsin, cite of the latest rioting, on Tuesday. The distortions started in the lead sentence…

NYTimes Engages in Awful Fact-Checking, Tars GOP 'Alternate Histories'

August 28th, 2020 10:42 AM

The New York Times set the table for Night Three from the Republican National Convention by accusing Republicans of “using selectively edited scenes to exaggerate violence from the summer protest movement….warping momentary scenes of violence from largely peaceful protests earlier this year into scenes of chaos.” A convention recap tried to gin up sympathy for poor Joe Biden: "…

NYT Spins: Trump's Tulsa Rally ‘Terrible Idea,' Black Protests Awesome

June 20th, 2020 11:27 PM

The New York Times on Saturday hypocritically hectored Trump supporters before their rally Saturday night in Tulsa. Reporter Matt Flegenheimer’s “news analysis” in Saturday’s edition used the gathering as an unflattering metaphor for the administration’s high-risk strategy in general: “‘What Do You Have To Lose?’ Best Read The Fine Print.” 

New York Times Front-Page Sugar Puff on Biden's Tender Loving Eulogies

June 12th, 2020 2:46 PM

The New York Times somehow thinks it's front-page investigative reporting to do a deep dive....into Biden's self-selected pile of eulogies so they can tout him as the anti-Trump, an "Emissary of Grief" who demonstrates the "capacity to heal." 

NYT No Longer Believes All Women: 'Doesn't Mean Every Woman Is Right'

May 5th, 2020 11:56 AM
The New York Times is belatedly waking up to Tara Reade’s accusation of sexual assault against likely Democratic nominee Joe Biden. Yet the paper is still flattering the Democratic Party with its concern over #MeToo issues, “vitally important to many members of his party.” The reporters dismissed Reade's story as "a single allegation of assault." And a front-page…

Out of Whack: NYTimes Sees ‘Moderates’ in Bloomberg, Buttigieg, Kerry?

November 27th, 2019 8:35 AM
More proof that the New York Times ideological scale is way out of calibration appeared in Monday’s edition, first in reporter Alexander Burns’ long profile of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s entry into the Democratic political field: “Bloomberg Hits Democratic Presidential Race Running to the Center.” The online subhead underlined Bloomberg’s…

Wendy Davis Pretends Abbott Is Behind Story of Her Inaccurate Bio; AP

January 20th, 2014 10:41 PM
Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, who is considered a hero of the pro-abortion crowd yet declared herself "pro-life" in November as her people attempted to bully the local media into twisting stories her way, is blaming her opponent for a Sunday Dallas Morning News story which pointed to significant discrepancies between her campaign biography and the truth. It…

WaPo's Milbank, Politico's Glueck Make Strained Comparisons of GOP Pol

July 28th, 2013 10:48 PM
The situations involving disgraced and relapsed former Congressman Anthony Weiner and Ben Quayle, who hasn't been in politics for about a year, are very analogous. Just ask Katie Glueck at the Politico. Oh, and the the Weiner situation is also very analogous to that of Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell, who has returned $21,000 worth of gifts he should never have taken from a businessperson.…

Big Whoop: Politico's Glueck Hypes One Republican Who (Sort of) Doesn

June 2nd, 2013 10:06 PM
Politico's Katie Glueck must have been really desperate for something newsworthy as a Saturday column topic. She apparently believed it was worth devoting over 1,500 words to a writeup whose key point was that "at least one Republican" doesn't like Texas Governor Rick Perry's aggressive attempts to persuade companies in other states to relocate to or expand in the Lone…

Politico's Glueck Spends Four Paragraphs Smearing the NRA Before Notin

March 30th, 2013 7:35 PM
Politico's "About" page consists of two rotating graphics: One says: "More reporters. Better coverage." The other: "A distinctive brand of journalism driving the conversation." It's hard to make a case that Politico's coverage is "better" (than what -- the Associated Press, aka the Administration's Press? That would be setting the bar…
