New York Times
No wonder liberal billionaire 2020 candidate Michael Bloomberg does not want his own news outlet investigating him. They might have to do journalism and risk exposing where his money has been going all these years.
New York Times media reporter Michael Grynbaum published a piece Monday afternoon that highlighted the growing concern for journalistic ethics at Bloomberg News over their founder Michael’s growing 2020 Democratic presidential campaign, citing “half a dozen Bloomberg journalists who requested anonymity.”
The New York Times ran a promotional piece on National Public Radio on Monday headlined “NPR, Under Attack by Trump, Is Taking the Threat Seriously.” Only there is no real threat, NPR lies about its federal funding, and the New York Times never mentions it has its own podcast airing on more than 150 NPR stations, a glaring conflict of interest.
The front of Sunday’s New York Times featured yet another climate lecture from Australia bureau chief Damien Cave. The alarmism was labeled a “Reporter’s Notebook,” but was not so much reporting as pleading with his unfortunate subjects to radically reorganize their lives in the name of “climate change.” The online headline deck: “The End of Australia as We Know It -- What many of us have witnessed this fire season feels alive and monstrous. With climate change forcing a relaxed country to stumble toward new ways of work, leisure and life, will politics follow?”
The New York State Legislature banned bail for defendants charged with most misdemeanor and nonviolent offenses without giving judges any discretion, which has accompanied a spike in crime. Yet the New York Times has been shilling for the left-wing, soft-on-crime policy, despite the undeniable street violence that has already resulted. Now they’re accusing opponents of racism, the giveaway of a desperate losing argument. The latest comes courtesy of Albany bureau chief Jesse McKinley. “Bail Reform Backlash Has Democrats at War.” The text box: “Some urge judicial discretion, while others accuse critics of fear-mongering.” Guess which argument McKinley favors?
In response to reports that a part of Antarctica recently reached a record high temperature of 65 degrees Fahrenheit, some media outlets descended into climate alarmism as they sloppily reported the findings. But, as pointed out at ClimateDepot, climate skeptic Jim Steele this week wrote up a piece debunking claims that the occurrence is a sign of global warming, and even cited studies suggesting Antarctica has actually been cooling for decades.
The New York Times posted a preposterous headline over Paul Krugman's latest column: "Bernie Sanders Isn't a Socialist." But he describes himself as a socialist. Our own Dan Gainor underlined the humor of this sentence with this joke on Twitter: "Paul Krugman isn't a columnist." Krugman admits Bernie identifies as a socialist, but he claims socialists really mean they're social democrats, so don't smear them with the S-word.
Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan routinely decries complaints of anti-Trump media bias by calling liberal journalists the "reality-based press." Now she's suddenly feeling the pain of media bias....against a socialist from Vermont. In an article posted on Wednesday, Margaret Sullivan declared: "The media keep falling in love — with anybody but Bernie Sanders."
New York Times’ Kevin Roose profiled former Vox journalist and gay/Marxist activist in “A Thorn in YouTube’s Side Digs In Even Deeper -- Carlos Maza, a socialist who calls YouTube ‘deeply unethical and reckless,’ is trying to bolster the video site’s left wing.” Maza, whose Twitter bio refers to Tucker Carlson as a white supremacist, targeted conservative Steven Crowder in 2019. Yet in Roose’s telling, Maza and other leftists have no influence at a YouTube dominated by “reactionary politics” that must be reined in. Roose was unswervingly celebratory of Maza and contemptuous of conservatives.
In its quest to find moderates or even “centrists” among the Democratic field of presidential candidates to pit against the avowed leftists, the New York Times must ignore several of the candidates’ actual voting records and public policy stands. The Times has found no less than four of the Democratic candidates to be not just “moderate” but “centrist.” The paper has termed former Sen. Joe Biden (lifetime American Conservative Union rating: 12.67 out of a possible 100), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (lifetime ACU rating: 4.67), former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Pete Buttigieg as moderates or centrists.
You know politics have gotten weird when a liberal New York Times columnist begs Democrat voters to abandon Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in favor of nominating Michael Bloomberg to lead the Democratic ticket. Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman wrote a wacky February 11, op-ed headlined “Paging Michael Bloomberg.”
The New York Times, which constantly lambastes Trump for spreading lies, is now critical of Trump for bringing actual news to public attention: “Trump, Once a Fan of Stop-and-Frisk, Uses It to Cudgel Bloomberg.” Notice the word choice in the online headlines: “Trump Takes On Bloomberg and Once Again Hijacks a News Cycle -- Like an assignment editor at a tabloid newspaper, the president poured accelerant on a negative story and got it trending on Twitter and cable news.” “Hijacks a news cycle” by pointing out controversial comments made by a potential rival?
