So what is driving liberals into an insane rage nowadays? The easy answer is President Donald Trump. However the more discerning among you would know that the subject of fire spoon eggs has caused an almost inconsolable rift among liberals with each side raging angrily at the other.
The chronicler of this liberal civil war is one New York Times writer named Kim Severson whom we last met in 2014 writing up the obituary of Chick-fil-A founder, S. Truett Cathy, by describing him as a "symbol of intolerance." Now she is covering the liberal cultural war over fire spoon eggs. Her latest dispatch from that front appeared in the New York Times on March 26, What’s Cooking in That Egg Spoon? A Bite-Size Culture War:
Leave it to the New York Times to stir up dissension in an obituary page, describing Truett Cathy as "at once a hero and a symbol of intolerance."
The New York Times went into Democratic Rehab mode on Tuesday on the front page of the Business Day section: “John Edwards Revisits His Past, Hanging Out Law Shingle Again.”
Peter Lattman and Kim Severson waited until paragraph 27 to wonder if someone with Edwards’ talent for lying about adultery to a dying wife might impede his appeal to clients. First, we must hear of “poor Edwards” having to deal with cynics and naysayers:
You can tell that members of the liberal media are uncomfortable that a southern state legislature is finally reflecting the conservative values of its electorate. For the first time in over a century, the GOP in North Carolina controls both chambers of the state legislature as well as the governorship, a feat that has the left-leaning staff at The New York Times extremely nervous and uncomfortable.
Take for example a story in the June 12 edition of the paper which highlights how “Weekly protests challenge conservative shift in state politics.” In a 26-paragraph piece, Times writer Kim Severson sympathizes with liberal protestors and relies heavily on anti-GOP quotes while including only two quotes from Republicans.
New York Times Atlanta bureau chief (and foodie) Kim Severson got rather insulting while writing about a new Mississippi law forbidding any locality from making rules on food size or content, passed in the wake of NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg's thwarted attempt to limit the size of sugary drinks New Yorkers could order: "'Anti-Bloomberg Bill' in Mississippi Bars Local Restrictions on Food and Drink."
No good deed goes unpunished? In a compromise move, North Carolina officials will issue drivers licenses to young illegal immigrants who have won deferrals from deportation, but with a distinguishing colored marking on the licenses – a pink stripe. New York Times Atlanta bureau chief Kim Severson likened the stripe to "a modern-day scarlet letter" in "North Carolina to Give Some Immigrants Driver's Licenses, With a Pink Stripe."
Severson insisted in her Wednesday story from Raleigh that "some are calling" it that, though she doesn't quote anyone using that memorable term. (A web search suggests the "some" people calling NC's move "a modern-day scarlet letter" are solely Severson's fellow aggrieved liberal journalists.)
New York Times Atlanta bureau chief Kim Severson sounded worried about the "controversial" conservatives taking over the North Carolina governorship in "G.O.P.'s Full Control in Long-Moderate North Carolina May Leave Lasting Stamp," seeing "an increasingly conservative agenda" since Barack Obama won the state in 2008.
With a Republican newly elected as governor and a Republican-controlled legislature, North Carolina, long a politically moderate player in the South, will soon have its most conservative government in a century.
New York Times Atlanta bureau chief Kim Severson on Friday committed her usual labeling bias describing prep work by the host city for the Democratic National Convention in "Charlotte Girds for Party And Array of Protesters."
Severson found "radical evangelical groups" composed of "conservative Christians" as well as a "conservative country music concert," but the left-wing Occupy Movement failed to draw even a "liberal" label, much less a "radical" one.
The New York Times's Kim Severson is reporting from Greensboro, N.C. on the campaign finance trial of former Democratic senator, presidential candidate, and vice presidential running mate John Edwards. But in keeping with Times practice when it comes to Edwards and other Democrats in legal trouble, Edwards's party affiliation was nowhere to be found in her Tuesday report, "Testimony by Ex-Aide Opens Edwards's Corruption Trial."
"Number of U.S. Hate Groups Is Rising, Report Says," New York Times Atlanta-based Kim Severson reported Thursday. But that "report" was not some government finding, but came straight from The Southern Poverty Law Center, a left-wing activist group whose fund-raising is based on finding as many dangerous right-wing groups as possible.
New York Times Atlanta bureau chief Kim Severson showed a little anti-Southern, anti-conservative condescension on the campaign trail in her Friday filing “From South Carolina, a Wary Welcome.” (Previously Jim Rutenberg had declared the state "famous for surfacing the dark undercurrents of American politics.")
