Pre-Results NYT: Hill a Feminist Hero, Trump's 'Anti-Semitic' Support

November 9th, 2016 6:01 PM
During the New York Times rather sedate and solemn (wonder why?) live election night coverage, reporter Maggie Haberman whined that “the amount of open misogyny during this campaign has been really striking, from a lot of Trump’s supporters.” Sarah Lyall’s front-page story in Wednesday’s edition (before most of the results were in) also took a feminist angle: “Many Women Feel Echoes of History in…

Brexit Bitterness? NYT's Lyall Twice Calls Boris a Liar in A1 Story

July 2nd, 2016 8:28 PM
The New York Times’ snobbish, condescending, and just plain crazed hostility toward Britain’s vote to leave the European Union trade zone continued after a political coup resulted in Boris Johnson, the intellectual figurehead of the successful Brexit campaign, dropping out of the race for conservative leader to replace Prime Minister David Cameron. Friday’s front page featured an insulting "memo…

People Mag Rips Brexit-Backing Boris Johnson as Rock-Throwing Poseur

July 2nd, 2016 6:45 AM
The new July 11 edition of People magazine set a side a page for "The Man Behind Brexit," Boris Johnson, the "Donald Trump doppelganger."

The liberal Euro-philes at the New York Times are at it again, mocking ignorant Britons for resenting the grand European Union trading bloc. London-based reporter Sarah Lyall made gentle mockery of the right-of-center push for England to exit the EU (a proposal known colloquailly as "Brexit") on Friday’s front page by evoking Monty Python, especially John Cleese: “On ‘Brexit’ Vote, British Ask If…

Euro-Loving NYTimes Paints 'Isolated' Britain As 'Big Loser' in Battle

December 13th, 2011 10:36 AM
British Prime Minister David Cameron was embraced by conservatives and euro-skeptics after rejecting a European Union agreement aimed at stabilizing the troubled economic union. Yet the tone of the New York Times news coverage is that he blundered, “isolating” Britain by failing to accept the accord’s requirements, including that members submit their budgets to the EU for approval even before…

Our Ribald Times: Public Sex in UK Could Be Discouraged...But It Might

October 9th, 2010 8:07 AM
The New York Times knows how to grab web traffic. One of its most popular articles right now is a Sarah Lyall dispatch from Thursday on the popularity in Britain of "dogging" -- public sex, sometimes with an audience of admirers. Lyall takes a long time getting around to critics (paragraph 12), and then it sounds like this: Britons are a tolerant bunch, and most probably would not care who…
