NYT, Wash Post Promote ‘Ambitious’ Green New Deal, Minimize Criticism

Thomas Friedman’s Halloween Horrors: Trump, GOP, and Fox News
Just in time for Halloween, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman tried to scare people into voting Democrat in his column Wednesday.

I repeat: In the midterm elections...."
Bourdain About Reading NYT Op-Ed Page: 'I Wanna F-ing Kill Myself'
On Monday, the transcript of a February interview with CNN host Anthony Bourdain surfaced, and most accounts reported his comments on Bill Clinton: "Entitled, rapey, gropey, grabby, disgusting." But he also said "I read the op-ed page of the New York Times and I wanna f---ing kill myself." Thomas Friedman, Maureen Dowd, and Nicholas Kristof were singled out for mockery.

A transcript is below but you really, really have to watch the video of New York Times columnist Tom Friedman on Tuesday's Morning Joe begging the viewers to vote Democrat in the midterms to get a full sense of his angst.

Appearing as a guest on Monday's Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman tagged President Donald Trump as a "chump" who has been "manipulated" by Russia and "played" by China. He even oddly lumped in Israel as a country that has "manipulated" President Trump.
Media Are Terrified By Trump
We are going into the third month of the Donald Trump presidency and the media are still having full-blown panic attacks over him.

NYT's Friedman Freaks Over Trump’s ‘Pearl Harbor,’ ‘9/11-Scale’ Lies

Friedman Wrongly Claims Only One Attack in US by Foreign Terrorists
Appearing as a guest on Monday's Andrea Mitchell Reports on MSNBC, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman incorrectly claimed that there has only been one case of a foreign-born terrorist staging an attack in the United States when there have, in fact, been a significant number of cases.

Liberal New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman is displeased with many of the “leading candidates” in the 2016 election, but made a nasty off-topic remark to bash conservative tax reform leader Grover Norquist in a recent column.

CNN's Fareed Zakaria Hypes: 'Fox News is a Favorite of ISIS'
CNN's Fareed Zakaria inserted a thinly-veiled shot at Fox News Channel during his Monday special on ISIS.

The Media’s Ferocious Reaction to Netanyahu’s Election Victory
This week, the media’s reaction to the Israeli election seemed indistinguishable from the reaction of the Obama White House. Not only were journalists surprised by Benjamin Netanyahu’s victory on Tuesday (they apparently believed pre-election surveys showing his party trailing by 2 to 4 seats; they ended up winning by 6 seats), but they seemed distressed by the result.
