The New York Times Magazine
If you happen to be drinking coffee and reading the print New York Times this coming Sunday, a word of warning: Put your drink down first or you might gag on the long, very long, profile of “oracle” Rachel Maddow. The online version by Amanda Hess trumpeted, “This Is the Moment Rachel Maddow Has Been Waiting For.”
It’s been more than 18 months since Senator Al Franken stepped down from his seat in the Senate, but thoughts of a comeback ran into some turbulence on Monday. That was when yet another woman accused the former comedian of inappropriate sexual behavior, the ninth to do so and the fourth to say that Franken “groped” her “ass.”
As exposed by Breitbart, it appears another editor at The New York Times has a history of making anti-Semitic and anti-white tweets. What’s more, this same editor worked on the Times’ infamous 1619 project, which “reframes” America under the lens of racism and slavery. This comes after several other high-level employees at the paper were found to have made racist remarks on their social media accounts.
The New York Times has begun a major initiative, the “1619 Project,” to observe the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe American history so that slavery and the contributions of black Americans explain who we are as a nation. Nikole Hannah-Jones, staff writer for The New York Times Magazine wrote the lead article, “America Wasn't a Democracy, Until Black Americans Made It One.”
Forget 1776 and all that: The New York Times wants to "reframe" your benighted understanding of the nation's founding, which they date to 1619, when the original sin of slavery first began to spread, as the first Africans were brought to North America as slaves. This year marks the 400th anniversary of that event, and the Times is primed to put slavery in the center of the American story, and redefine capitalism as slavery while they’re at it. The first salvo came in the special edition of the Sunday Magazine, stuffed with left-wing opinions, from the economy to junk food to medical care to the political system and traffic jams in Atlanta, with verything tied back to slavery.
The Sulzberger dynasty that publishes The New York Times does not like the Murdoch dynasty that runs the News Corporation and Fox News. They charge the Murdochs with "destabilizing democracy" around the world. What this really says is that the Times has lost its influence, and Fox News is on the rise.
When you think of Mitch McConnell, you think of Nazi appeasers, right? If you’re a New York Times journalist, maybe so. In an enormous, 26 page piece for the January 27th Sunday magazine, journalist Charles Homans psychoanalyzed the Senate Majority Leader’s relationship with Donald Trump.
Game of Thrones fans know “winter is coming.” What they didn’t know was the most popular show on HBO is also a “parallel” to governments now facing the threat of climate change, according to a New York Times Style Magazine interview with its creator.
New York Times Magazine correspondent Mark Leibovich has made waves in Washington, D.C. recently with the release of This Town, his tell-all account of the “universally disliked” culture in our nation’s capital. Leibovich appeared on Tuesday’s Morning Joe to promote his controversial book, and to discuss the breakdown of Washington journalism with co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.
Leibovich suggested he wrote This Town to “hold a mirror to the culture” of the nation’s capital, and that the ultimate takeaway of his work is that “everyone fundamentally is disappointed with Washington.” But Leibovich’s history of partisanship, as documented by NewsBusters, suggests that the reporter is very much a part of the dysfunction inside the Beltway. Leibovich has a history of praising Democrats and bashing Republicans, all in a day’s work at the left-wing New York Times.
