New York Magazine
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.”
Irin Carmon, a former Washington Post contributor and fierce abortion supporter, found a novel angle from which to attack the urprise hit pro-life movie Unplanned, “A Hit Anti-Abortion Film Is Inspiring Real-World Harassment.” No, it isn’t -- and if it is, Carmon failed to present any evidence to support that headline under her story for New York magazine’s “Cut." Carmon relied on other left-wing journalists to make her case and to assure readers Johnson was lying
New York Magazine published an article on Tuesday that makes one think the author, Luke O'Neil, watched "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" perhaps a few times too many. The aura of that movie (both original and remake) seems to have infected his horror tale story, "What I’ve Learned From Collecting Stories of People Whose Loved Ones Were Transformed by Fox News" to the extent that it comes off as a parody of itself that could be called "Invasion of the Fox News Body Snatchers."
The liberal media launched an offensive against both of President Donald Trump’s selections for the Federal Reserve board of governors.
The media have outdone themselves slinging mud at the “controversial” and “unqualified” picks of economics writer and Club for Growth founder Stephen Moore and millionaire businessman, former CEO and former presidential candidate Herman Cain. Cain also served as a director for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. Directors provide “insight on current and emerging issues” in the business community.
In spite of growing wages, extremely low unemployment and nearly 3 percent economic growth in 2018, the liberal media are becoming obsessed with recession. It didn’t matter that CFOs were confident the U.S. economy “will not experience a recession” in 2019. They were fixated by recession prospects in March anyway.
Every. Single. Day.
Some of the motivating forces behind the 2020 elections could prove to be sinister for the First Amendment and media outlets the left hates. The founder of Data for Progress, a far-left think tank that endorses socialism and the Green New Deal, wants the next Democrat president to silence Fox News. He shared a study done by two Columbia University researchers that claimed judges who watched Fox delivered harsher criminal sentences based on racial motivation.
The New York Times Sunday Review devoted its entire front page to unembarrassed, literal climate panic. It’s right there in the headline, over a blood-red background: “Time to Panic.” The subhead: “The planet is getting warmer in catastrophic ways. And fear may be the only thing that saves us.” It was penned by New York magazine’s literary editor David Wallace-Wells, who is evidently trying his hand at apocalyptic fiction. He previously tried to instill panic in the population with his alarmist piece in the summer of 2017, “The Uninhabitable Earth.” Now he’s imported it to the paper, 3,000 words of it.
New York magazine’s Eric Levitz spent nearly 3,000 words making excuses for the many factual errors committed so far by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the gaffe-prone young socialist representing part of Brooklyn, in “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Critique of Fact-Checking Is Valid.” Levitz excused the verbal missteps in the name of a higher progressive morality while cheerfully dismissing the vaunted media “fact checking” that was until last week so vital in keeping the Donald Trump administration in line. Now, after some modest media pushback on some of Ocasio-Cortez’s wackier claims, especially in the Washington Post, fact checking is suddenly unfair to the left.
