Union at NY Times Demands ‘Sensitivity Reads’ to Censor Content
The Tom Cotton controversy never dies at The New York Times. The News Guild of New York, which represents more than 1,200 workers at the Times, called for a meeting with Times leaders and demanded what they call "sensitivity reads" to provide an “extra layer of vetting” to make the newspaper “more diverse and equitable.” In Cotton's case, that would have meant killing the law…

NY Times’ Douthat Eviscerates Own Paper Over Cotton Meltdown

NY Times: Boycott Your Relatives Until they Get Woke, Donate Money
Liberal Democrats consider themselves experts on everything, and they don’t mind sharing their "wisdom" with all the people they consider less than brilliant.
