The Columbia Journalism Review interviewed New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet over the Times changing its Tuesday morning lead headline after a left-wing social media mob complained it wasn’t sufficiently hostile to President Trump, in the wake of the mass murders in El Paso and Dayton. The paper’s own “Reader Center” also issued a mea culpa in “A Times Headline About Trump Stoked Anger. A Top Editor Explains."
The Nation magazine's firebrand sports editor Dave Zirin has aggressively come to the defense of Megan Rapinoe, a lesbian member of the U.S. national women's soccer team who refused to sing the national anthem before a World Cup game Tuesday. He blasted right-wing "Christianists" who opposed her protest and slammed President Trump and Vice-president Pence for waging an anti-LGBT agenda.
While criticizing LeBron James for teaming up with Walmart to fight hunger, The Nation magazine's sports editor Dave Zirin labeled President Donald Trump and Fox News racists. He called James a heroic athlete-activist who's done great things, but says Walmart is exacerbating the problems of hunger and poverty.
Liberal billionaire George Soros gives millions each year to fund a left-wing media empire that promotes far-left opinions. It’s only natural that some of those Soros-funded or Soros-linked media are pushing the eco-socialist Green New Deal and hoping to influence the upcoming presidential race. The Green New Deal resolution was introduced by Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Edward Markey (D-MA). Ocasio-Cortez described it as a “comprehensive agenda of economic, social and racial justice,” aiming to force a New Deal-like federal mobilization designed to “achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions through a fair and just transition.”
It’s clear The New York Times has its mind made up about climate change and the debate is over — at least in their newsroom.
Speaking on a journalism panel on April 30, International climate change reporter Somini Sengupta boiled down scientific dissent on the subject of climate change to the insulting and loaded phrase “three climate deniers.”
Columbia Journalism School wants “a new playbook” for journalism in a “1.5 degree world” because “we believe the news business must also transform.” So they’ve handpicked a selection of global warming alarmists and far-left media to instruct the media how to change.
Don’t expect that change to be toward balance or giving climate skeptics any air time. But be sure to look for major media to join in. MSNBC, The Washington Post, and Vox are all part of the “journalism” event.
Tiger Woods, winner of the 2019 Master's golf tournament, is back – with a media-imposed asterisk. He's being advised that he must navigate his brand around his friendship with President Donald Trump. "Tiger Woods Can’t Be Apolitical in the Age of Trump and Kaepernick," writes Dave Zirin, the hard Left sports editor of The Nation.
It was a throwback to the bad old days of laughably obvious labeling bias at the New York Times. Reporter Tiffany Hsu Stark demonstrated the other end of that stark double standard on Tuesday, with the news that “Nation Editor To Step Down But Stay On As Publisher.” Hsu’s piece contained not a single ideological label to identify the hard-left magazine that has dallied for decades with defending totalitarians on the left. Yet the Weekly Standard, a right-leaning anti-Trump publication that was far closer to the mainstream of American politics, was larded with labels in articles fabout the Standard’s controversial shutdown.
For many Americans, social justice warriors in sports uniforms have disrespected our great nation and turned them away from sports. The Nation's Dave Zirin has made a slobbering career of apologizing for and glorifying these malcontents. He's written books on 1968 Olympic protester John Carlos and radical NFL player Michael Bennett. He staunchly defends Colin Kaepernick and others who politicize sports, too. Zirin is the "parallel universe," and this week he bitterly complains that Carlos and fellow '68 Olympic protester Tommie Smith are being disrespected by their alma mater, San Jose State University.
To help us sort out the tumult caused by a recent outbreak of "transphobia," The Nation's radical lefty sports editor Dave Zirin and a biology-challenged cast of woke "gender experts" are disparaging opponents of the growing transgender movement in sports. And it's quite a fine gender bending mess they've made. They claim that confused, angry cis-genders are spreading misinformation about what it means to be trans and how "sexed bodies" operate in the world.
Attempting to squeeze their way in front of the glaring spotlight that is the Super Bowl this weekend will be numerous social justice protesters. The Nation magazine reports that in Atlanta this weekend, the points of protest will surround racial inequalities, voter suppression and income inequality in Georgia.
A group of partisan, progressive athletes that includes current social justice warriors, kneeling NFL players, a past Olympic protester and others, has signed a last-minute get-out-the-vote letter. Known as Athletes4Impact, their stated motivation is the struggle against hate and violence. But guess who, in their view, is responsible for all the hate? President Donald J. Trump, of course.
