NY Times Delivers Page One Climate Lectures For Australia

February 16th, 2020 2:30 PM
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…

NY Times Blames Australia Fire Inaction on Warming, Rupert Murdoch

January 10th, 2020 1:01 PM
Sydney-based New York Times reporter Damien Cave found yet another thing to blame on the conservative press and in particular Australian-born newspaper mogul Rupert Murdoch: “Murdoch Manipulates Debate on Australia’s Fires.” The front of the Business Day section on Thursday featured the Sydney-based reporter committing his standard Murdoch-demonizing opinions to the Times…

New York Slimes: Damien Cave Slams Murdoch-Driven, Alt-Right Extremism

May 11th, 2019 3:06 PM
As Australia’s election looms, the New York Times’ Australia bureau chief Damien Cave is spreading opposition research for the liberals in “Toxic Speech Derails Politicians in Australia. Some Call It Progress.” Cave, paranoid as ever about racism in conservative politics, managed to string together some tasteless social media posts into a general condemnation of…

NYT's Cave: Science-Denying 'Far-Right' Dooms Australia's Climate

August 22nd, 2018 8:51 PM
Reporting from Sydney, New York Times Australia bureau chief Damien Cave provided a conservative-mocking “news analysis,” “Coal Lobby Turns Up Heat, and Australia Wilts Under Climate Change.” The text box reproached the country: “A progressive nation remains in thrall to the energy industry.” The online headline: “Australia Wilts From Climate Change. Why…

NYT’s Cave Compares Castro to Odd Relative, Fears 'Income Inequality'

November 29th, 2016 11:57 AM
The New York Times has treated the passing of Cuba’s Fidel Castro less as the death of a dictator than the dying of a revolutionary dream. Former Miami bureau chief Damien Cave’s off-lead story from Havana on Monday interviewed three generations of Cubans, but only came within glancing distance of the truth of the tyrannical leader, treating him more as an eccentric relative than a…

NYT: Phrase 'Radical Islam' 'Offensive...Taken on Darker Connotations'

June 17th, 2016 4:40 PM
On the front of Friday’s New York Times, reporter Damien Cave profiled the city victimized by an Islamic terrorist through the eyes of a Muslim trauma doctor who helped treat the victims. Cave, hypersensitive to alleged racism on the part of Republicans, allowed his heroic Muslim doctor subject to attack both Donald Trump and American intolerance. And Max Fisher made a second attempt to…

Dissidents' Delight? NYT Heaps Praise on Obama, Its Man in Havana

March 23rd, 2016 3:09 PM
As President Obama’s three-day Cuba excursion wraps up, the New York Times coverage from Havana took a few shots at the Communist nation’s persecution of dissidents, and the overall authoritarian nature of the regime. But the fawning over Obama’s “remarkable” visit went way over the top, including self-fawning: "Mr. Obama himself marveled aloud at the…

NYT Greets Weak Free Market Move in Cuba By Obsessing Over Inequality

February 26th, 2015 10:06 AM
The New York Times' left-wing obsession over "income inequality" reached a pathetic nadir in Wednesday's print edition, in Randal Archibold's report on the Communist country injecting some feeble moves toward free enterprise to prop up its rotting economy: "As Cuba opens the door wider to private enterprise, the gap between the haves and have-nots, and between whites…

NY Times Damien Cave on 'Venerable...Leader' Fidel Castro

December 20th, 2014 11:11 PM
New York Times reporter Damien Cave reported from Havana that Obama's liberalized policy shift toward Cuba meant that that country was finished with its "venerable....leader" (not ruthless dictator) Fidel Castro, and also took a shot at "stiff-backed critics of Fidel’s government." As Miami bureau chief, Cave fostered a bizarre obsession with hypothetical inequality…

Predictable: NYTimes Fills News Gap With Overblown Stories on Discord

August 28th, 2012 5:21 PM
How painfully predictable: The New York Times filled the news gap caused by the cancellation of Monday's events with rumors of party discord. In fact, the Times first tried to gin up controversy at the 2012 Republican National Convention long ago. Here's a May 13, 2010 report from Damien Cave on how toxic beaches in Tampa might ruin the Republican convention, then over two years away…

August 3rd, 2011 5:58 PM
Leave it to the New York Times to worry about income disparity and gentrification… in Cuba. In his August 3 story “Cubans Set for Big Change: Right to Buy Homes,” correspondent Damien Cave reported on how Cubans will finally be able – albeit doubtless with numerous restrictions – to own their own houses come legislative changes expected to be enacted later this…

NYT: OK for AFL-CIO to Bash McCain, But Anti-Obama Mail Racially Suspe

October 21st, 2008 4:06 PM
Steven Greenhouse, the Times's pro-union, anti-Wal-Mart labor reporter, seemed pretty enthused about the A.F.L.-C.I.O.'s attack mailings against John McCain in "A.F.L.-C.I.O. Targets Seniors," the neutrally headlined story he filed to the "Caucus" blog Tuesday morning. In contrast, another Times reporter, Damien Cave, was offended at the sight of two anti-Obama mailers in his…

NYT Bows to Reality: 'Baghdad Starts to Exhale as Security Improves

November 20th, 2007 2:07 PM

Bill Maher Can’t Get NYT Baghdad Correspondent to Bash Bush

August 25th, 2007 11:45 AM
As the new season of HBO's "Real Time" began Friday night, I watched with great trepidation, especially given host Bill Maher's disgraceful special on that network back in July wherein he spent virtually two-thirds of the program bashing President Bush and anyone with an "R" next to his/her name. With that in mind, my stomach started turning during his opening monologue as he…
