New York Magazine
Only one big-time sporting enterprise is "reckless" enough to keep going right through COVID-19, and of course, the blame falls on President Donald Trump. New York Magazine's Will Leitch says the UFC is looking for ways to get around social distancing because the President and Vice President Mike Pence encouraged its leader to live his life. And by the way, the White House is mismanaging the coronavirus pandemic, too.
Washington Free Beacon writer Alex Griswold reported American news consumers have been "inundated by interviews" with former congresswoman Katie Hill, who was pressed to resign last year in the midst of scandal over having sex with a female subordinate. Griswold noted that overall, "the media frequently and uncritically parroted Hill's talking points that she was the victim of 'revenge porn'" from her ex-husband.
MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell lunged to promote the latest New York magazine screed by former New York Times drama critic and columnist Frank Rich, who insisted Trump's supporters were "Vichy Republicans," like Hitler's collaborators in France during World War II.
Democrats and the media have blamed Facebook for President Trump’s win in 2016. Now Facebook is firing back. Facebook Vice President of AR/VR Andrew Bosworth wrote an internal memo defending Trump’s 2016 campaign. Facebook Vice President of AR/VR Andrew Bosworth wrote an internal memo defending Trump’s 2016 campaign. He wrote, “Parscale and Trump just did unbelievable work. They weren’t running misinformation or hoaxes.
New York Magazine's top 10 sports stories of the decade reflect just how politically partisan sports reporting has become in recent years. Writer Will Leitch's list delivers digs at white men and President Donald Trump while applauding social justice activism by athletes, the acceptance of performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) and attacks on amateurism. For these reasons, the decade about to end provided more joy than heartache, he says.
In a New York Magazine story claiming the age of athlete-politicians is coming soon, Will Leitch not only endorses the idea, but says a presidential ticket of LeBron James and Megan Rapinoe is already underway. Leitch is jazzed about the idea of athletes seeking public office — particularly those who are aligned with Democrat positions.
On July 23, New York Magazine published perhaps the most egregious case of liberal insanity you will ever find in printed text -- a story you have to read to believe. The 7,000-word true story was written by journalist Kera Bolonik, and it encapsulates the mangled family lives and harrowing decadence that is characteristic of our country’s most elite institutions.
How heartbreakingly sad is it when you’ve had so many abortions you can rank them and decide which one was your “best?” In New York Magazine’s The Cut on June 19, Sarah Miller wrote about the four abortions she's had and which was her "best abortion ever." The article is brutally honest to the point of being cavalier about abortion.
On June 21, New York magazine published a shocking cover story, an excerpt from the new book by author and advice columnist E. Jean Carroll, titled What Do We Need Men For? Carroll described suffering a sexual assault in a Bergdorf Goodman department store dressing room. The alleged assailant is named Donald Trump. When did this occur? She vaguely guesses it “has to be in the fall of 1995 or the spring of 1996” because of what they were wearing.
On Monday morning’s airing of CNN’s New Day, host Alisyn Camerota spoke with President Trump’s latest sexual assault accuser, author E. Jean Carroll. Carroll, who was on the show to promote her new book, detailed the account to Camerota. Camerota pushed Carroll to implicate Trump many times, and repeatedly led Carroll down a narrative that she wanted told.
On June 21, New York Magazine published a story by journalist E. Jean Carroll accusing President Trump of rape. The incident occured more than two decades ago. Even though the media has jumped on every sexual misconduct allegation against Trump, journalists have been relatively mum about Carroll’s violent story. Despite the media’s doubt, Hollywood celebrities were quick to condemn Trump as a vicious serial rapist.
President Donald Trump infuriated the left again on June 19, when he awarded supply-side economist Arthur Laffer the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The left’s reaction was predictably vicious. An MSNBC analyst called Laffer one of the most “destructive forces” in economics since Herbert Hoover. New York Magazine writer Jonathan Chait minced no words about his anger over Laffer’s award ceremony, calling him a “kook” elevated to “metaphysical status” within the Republican Party. He ridiculed Laffer’s theory as “provably untrue” and based on a “fake curve.”
