New York Times
Reporter Matt Flegenheimer prodded the Democratic party to abandno a moral high ground he is deluded into thinking the party currently holds, in “Democrats Debate if High Road in Politics Is Leading Anywhere – Party of ‘We Go High’ Is Just Getting Angry,” on the front of Saturday’s New York Times. As if the Democrats haven’t been in full angry mode for years, culminating in aggressive protests and actual violence committed against congressional Republicans, and then the anti-Kavanaugh mobs.
The New York Times carefully sandwiched the disturbing Democratic trend of increasing mob behavior by liberals and Democrats -- culminating in the hysterical reaction to Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation -- into a story that made it about a hypocritical Trump. Reporter Peter Baker put the onus on the president, not the mob-instigation of his political opponents in “‘Unhinged’? No, Trump Tells Opponents, You Are.” The online headline underlined that Trump-centric spin: “Trump’s Contradiction: Assailing ‘Left-Wing Mob’ as Crowd Chants ‘Lock Her Up.’
Stopping coal use is a priority of climate alarmists and the environmental left, and a common talking point when the liberal media issue dramatic warnings. Sometimes, those talking points aren’t even vaguely true. Just ask The New York Times.
The New York Times is still leading the cheers for Democrat Beto O’Rourke in his quest to unseat Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in November. In Wednesday’s lead story for the National section, Elizabeth Dias devoted 1,900 words to sudden respect for Christian evangelicals: “In Deep-Red Texas, Evangelical Women Trickle Toward O’Rourke -- Citing moral imperative to fight Trump’s agenda.”
It’s evidently going to take some time for the post-Kavanaugh confirmation healing to begin at the New York Times. With near unanimity the paper’s columnists, some of them former reporters, are reacting with anger and contempt over Trump’s victory against the Democrat’s Supreme Court smear campaign. Columnist Paul Krugman rehashed his tired old line about “The Paranoid Style in G.O.P. Politics.” The text box read “Republicans are an authoritarian regime in waiting.” Not to be outflanked, columnist Michelle Goldberg claimed “Trump Gives Dictators the Green Light.”
New York Times editors must have thought Alexandra Alter’s article a timely response to conservative Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation: “How Feminist Dystopian Fiction Is Channeling Women’s Anger and Anxiety.” They even placed it on Wednesday's front page. Thanks to President Trump’s attacks on women’s rights America’s, women are just a few weeks away from mandatory Handmaid’s Tale uniforms, judging by this ominous overview of recent novels in the genre.
The New York Times is not taking the Kavanaugh confirmation very well. The paper has recently followed its left-wing audience down the rabbit hole of intersectionality, filling it opinion pages with emotional discourses on “white privilege,” race, gender and related topics of interest to left-wing “social justice” activists. But the dig may have hit bottom in an opinion piece by feminist Alexis Grenell keyed to Kavanaugh's successful confirmation, “White Women, Come Get Your People -- They will defend their privilege to the death.”
Brett Kavanaugh may have won his Supreme Court nomination, but New York Times Supreme Court reporter Adam Liptak tried to defuse the excitement on the front page of Sunday’s paper: “Confirmation Battle May Have Eroded the Public Trust.” Now that conservatives have an apparent majority, the Supreme Court is now suddenly “injured and diminished.” Liptak also warned with this liberal talking point: "It cannot help the court’s reputation that a third of its male justices have been questioned about sexual misconduct."
Liberal media petulance and bitterness was evident on the front page of Sunday’s New York Times after the Senate narrowly confirmed Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Reporters Peter Baker and Nicholas Fandos reported “A Nomination Is Rescued by a Display of Rage and Resentment.” Because how dare someone get angry over being accused of sexual assault.
NYT reporter Elizabeth Williamson swooned over the left-wing protestors rampaging through the Senate hallways as the Kavanaugh saga approached boiling point : “Stories on the Court Steps and Mass Arrests as Capital Boils.” She ignored the condescending disrespect toward a Republican U.S. senator shown by left-wing protestors while accusing Sen. Orrin Hatch of being "dismissive." And two editorials slimed Kavanaugh as a "jerk" who is "credibly accused" of sexual assault.
After its shattering "ice" expose of Brett Kavanaugh’s college concert-going days, Wednesday’s New York Times provided yet another bombshell revelation in the Kavanaugh controversy, we learn that in high school he helped organize a week at a beach condo over the summer. This shocking development was solemnly reported by Kate Kelly and David Enrich and appeared in Wednesday’s paper: “Letter From 1983 Offers Glimpse of Nominee’s High School Clique.”
On her show Wednesday morning, NBC anchor Megyn Kelly literally treated a New York Times story detailing a 1983 letter written by Brett Kavanaugh like a piece of garbage, crumpling up a copy of the letter and throwing it away. Even as all three broadcast networks, including her own, hyped the story, Kelly told viewers how “ridiculous” it was.
