NYT Celebrates First Lady-Hillary Embrace, Hails GOP Women for Clinton
October 29th, 2016 9:13 AM
It was the “I Am Woman” edition of Friday’s New York Times.

NYT Hypocritically Dismisses Vote Rigging Concerns in Anti-Trump Storm
October 19th, 2016 3:14 PM
On the eve of the final presidential debate, Wednesday’s New York Times went after Donald Trump cover to cover, with attempts to shame the Republican nominee and a cavalier dismissal of his allegations of election rigging as racist and paranoid, though the Times was quite amenable to Democratic conspiracy theories about Bush stealing the 2004 election. Wednesday’s off-lead story by…
Tears at NY Times: Obama’s Imperial Immigration Act Fails at SCOTUS
June 24th, 2016 10:19 PM
Immigration is the issue where the New York Times' liberal slant is most obvious, and Friday's edition did not fail to provide it. The Supreme Court effectively doomed President Obama’s executive actions in 2014 to unilaterally shield some five million illegal immigrants from deportation, and the New York Times' front-page “news analysis," “Lines Drawn for…
NYT Shills for Hill on Front, Plays Everyone-Does-It Defense on Email
May 11th, 2016 8:14 PM
Hillary Clinton’s road to the Democratic nomination may be strewn with stones like Bernie Sanders, who won the West Virginia primary Tuesday night. But Clinton can always count on rock-solid support from her base at the New York Times. On Wednesday’s front page, reporter Steven Lee Myers mounted an “everyone-does-it” defense of Hillary in her ongoing controversy over…
NYT Lectures Indiana Rubes on Transgender, Buries CA Anti-Trump Riots
April 30th, 2016 5:17 PM
Uh oh. Ted Cruz is really in trouble with the New York Times now, after attacking Donald Trump for saying people should be able to use the restroom of whatever gender they now identify with. On the trail in Indiana, reporter Trip Gabriel took time out of his packed schedule to deliver a condescending lecture to the ignorant locals about transgenders in “Cruz, in Indiana, Attacks Trump for…
NYT: 'Angry...Seething...Almost Apocalyptic' GOP Raises 'Islamophobia'
December 6th, 2015 11:18 AM
The front page of Saturday's New York Times, next to the paper's already infamous front-page gun-control editorial, claimed that "Shootings in California Reshape the Campaigns." The language used by reporters Michael Barbaro and Trip Gabriel, was quite revealing. See how the Republican presidential candidates "angrily demanded...[rode a] rising tide of bellicosity...…
NYT Makes Trump's Blunt Immigration Talk a Front-Page Problem for GOP
August 19th, 2015 10:39 PM
No issue most exposes the liberal bias of the New York Times more than the matter of illegal immigrants (or as the paper prefers to call them, "undocumented immigrants"). The Times favors generous amnesty, and keeps pushing it both on its news pages and in opinion. A Wednesday Page One story by Trip Gabriel and Julia Preston tried to transform Donald Trump's blunt words on illegals…
NYT's Tale of Two Senators: 'Sloganeering' Paul, Surging Sanders
June 1st, 2015 10:14 PM
Two U.S. Senators -- one Republican, the other a socialist who votes with the Democrats -- are outside candidates for president. Both were profiled in Monday's New York Times, but with quite different results. While Rand Paul's anti-surveillance crusade was caricatured as cynical "sloganeering," socialist Bernie Sanders' modest Iowa crowds (100 people instead of 50?) were…
NYT Page 1 Label Overdose: 'Hard-Right...Right-Wing...Conservatives'
March 26th, 2015 10:36 PM
Political reporter Trip Gabriel's front-page report from the Iowa hustings in Thursday's New York Times was, even by the paper's standards, an amazingly dense thicket of ideologically loaded labeling, with the word "conservative" or "hard-line" or "right wing" cropping up in seemingly every sentence: "Conservatives Are Looking to Unite Behind an…
After Devouring Giuliani for Obama Remark, NYT Targets Scott Walker
February 23rd, 2015 9:49 PM
The New York Times, having feasted for days on remarks made by former New York City Governor Rudy Giuliani at a private dinner for Scott Walker, is now switching targets to Walker himself.
NYT's 'Woe Is Us' Report on Ohio Dems Woefully Short on Fact Checking
September 30th, 2014 8:53 PM
On Sunday, Trip Gabriel at the New York Times had the thankless task of concocting a report which would somehow make Ohio Democrats feel positive about winning at least one statewide office in November instead of getting skunked, which appears pretty likely at this point.
That's because the campaign of the Dems' gubernatorial candidate, affectionately known as the Wreck That Is Edward…
New York Times Nervously Documents North Carolina's 'Abrupt Rightward
May 19th, 2014 7:32 AM
The New York Times is obsessed with the disturbing rightward shift in North Carolina, and used the uninspiring hook (the start of a state legislative session) to run yet another ominous story. It was reporter Trip Gabriel's turn on Sunday to document how not even North Carolina's governor is right-wing enough for the newly conservative state legislature: "North Carolina Governor…
NYT's Gabriel Claims Gosnell Trial 'Been Widely Covered' Ever Since Pr
May 1st, 2013 1:41 PM
The New York Times's Trip Gabriel reported Tuesday that each side has rested its case in the trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, on trial for four charges of infanticide at his Philadelphia clinic. The first paragraph is revealing:
“They are known as Baby Boy A, Baby C, Baby D and Baby E, all of whom prosecutors call murdered children and the defense calls aborted fetuses -- the…
NY Times Finally Sends Reporter to Gosnell Infanticide Trial, Cites 'E
April 16th, 2013 2:02 PM
A mere month after the trial began, the New York Times has, under pressure, sent a reporter to Philadelphia to cover the trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell on charges of mass infanticide.
Trip Gabriel did indeed file from Philadelphia on Tuesday, "Online Furor Draws Press to Abortion Doctor's Trial." But his location was mostly irrelevant, as he only pinned two and a half…
