September 8th, 2022 4:53 PM

March 23rd, 2022 12:21 PM

New York Times congressional reporter Carl Hulse continued to protect Democrats against Republicans in Saturday’s edition, “Republicans Amplify Culture-War Issues In Bid to Regain Power.” (Um, isn’t the point of electoral politics to gain power?)

March 10th, 2021 11:53 AM

Like the late Arizona Senator John McCain (R), Arizona Democratic Senator Kyrsten Sinema is seen as a centrist “maverick.” Yet Sinema’s recent, dramatic thumbs-down voting gesture on the minimum wage was excoriated by The New York Times, not celebrated the way McCain’s similar thumbs-down “no” vote helped preserve ObamaCare in 2017. The Times painted the…

February 13th, 2021 10:52 PM

The New York Times included in its Saturday coverage of the school re-opening debate a story by congressional reporter Carl Hulse: “Republicans Seize on Shuttered Schools as a Political Rallying Cry.” Does “seize” sound familiar?
