The photo dominated the front of the New York Times Styles section over the title “The Fashionista.” Who is this new impresario taking over the fashion world? The next line: “Fidel Castro received rock star treatment and left an indelible mark on fashion when he visited New York in 1959.” Yes, Fidel Castro, Communist dictator and fashion plate, "highly educated" and comparable to Frank Sinatra and James Dean. This nauseating propaganda as fashion piece was penned by Tony Perrottet, who with this article has successfully infiltrated another seemingly unlikely Times section with Castro propaganda.
A recent episode of Univision senior anchor Jorge Ramos’ “Real America”, now shown on Facebook Watch, builds upon a series of historical inaccuracies and sophistries in order to aid and abet the ongoing effort to soft-sell democratic socialism.
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 Can’t Its Politicians Act?” In Cave's mind, Australia is throwing away its wonderful left-wing history for the devolutionary “circus” of global-warming skepticism.
WASHINGTON — It has been a pretty good week for Donald Trump. The economy is growing faster than anyone on the left or in the middle or among the Never-Trumpers believed possible. Inflation is low, and employment is at a record high. Moreover, the president and the European Union reached an understanding on trade last week that signals the likely end of a trade war, at least with Europe.
Obituary writer Robert McFadden went past respect for the dead to mark the passing of hard-left former liberal congressman Ron Dellums in reverential fashion on Tuesday: “Ron Dellums, 82, Dies; Vocal and Unrelenting, He Upheld Left’s Ideals.” The text box: “A mantra over three decades in Congress: Stop war. Help people.” A photo caption in the print version called Dellums “a lifelong champion for social justice.” It’s a standard the paper doesn’t apply to conservative figures.
While appearing as a guest on ABC’s The View program on Tuesday, actor/director Kevin Costner was asked by liberal co-host Joy Behar to share his thoughts on the practice of separating immigrant children from their parents after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally. After stumbling for a moment, Costner replied: “I'm not recognizing America right now. I don't recognize its voice.” That comment drew applause from the studio audience, and he then added: “We can be about more, and right now we're acting really small.”
The New York Times just can't get enough of promoting, defending, and excusing Marxism and communism. At the paper's online blog called "The Stone" on Monday, Jason Barker, an associate professor of philosophy, celebrated the upcoming 200th anniversary of Karl Marx's birth by telling the Communist Manifesto's author: "You Were Right!
Some journalists fawned and flattered over communist thug Fidel Castro. But then-ABC reporter Lisa Howard went the extra mile. In Politico Magazine, Friday, Peter Kornbluh recounts Howard’s previously undisclosed affair. The headline screamed, “‘My Dearest Fidel’: An ABC Journalist’s Secret Liaison With Fidel Castro.”
The Associated Press and many of the AP's colleagues in the establishment press have had a nearly 60-year romance with Cuba's brutal communist regime. They have frequently regaled readers with the island nation's "free healthcare" and "free education," as if that makes up for the fact that the typical Cuban subsists on far less than the $2 a day the international community considers extreme poverty. Today, the AP, in a tweet and at least two headlines, pretended that it was a free election that elevated Miguel Diaz-Canel to Cuba's presidency.
More proof that the New York Times’ political bias extends into death. The latest hostile treatment of a figure who ran afoul of the liberal line on social issues appeared Thursday, in an obituary of the president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormon church). Thomas Monson received less sympathetic treatment than did ruthless longtime Communist dictator, Fidel Castro.
Appearing as a guest on Friday's New Day on CNN a year after Fidel Castro's death to promote his film about Castro's Cuba, filmmaker Jon Alpert blamed the United States for the economic failures of communism on the island country as he charged that the U.S. ruined the Cuban economy by flooding the sugar market in the 1970s.
Not surprisingly, Lyin’ Brian Williams prevailed during the Media Research Center’s 30th Anniversary Gala featuring the 2017 DisHonors Awards as the winner of the Dan Rather Memorial Award for the Stupidest Analysis thanks to a bonkers quote about life in communist Cuba. The Federalist’s Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway served as the category’s presenter while House Freedom Caucus Chairman and Republican Congressman Mark Meadows (N.C.) accepted the award in jest on Williams’s behalf.
