NYT Loved McCain’s ObamCare Thumbs-Down, Hated Gesture by Sinema

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…

NYTimes Rips GOP Opposing Enormous Spending, 'Biden’s Good Intentions'

March 7th, 2021 10:32 PM

The front page of Sunday’s New York Times celebrated the U.S. Senate’s narrow, party-line approval of President Biden’s $1.9 trillion dollar economic relief package, congressional correspondent Carl Hulse’s “news analysis” still faulted the Republican Party for failing to abide by Biden’s “good intentions” in "Win Shows Quest To Cooperate Is All But Lost.” It’s Hulse’s latest “…

NY Times Turns School Re-Openings Into Cynical Republican ‘Seizure'

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? Democrats rarely “seize” or “pounce” on Republicans in headlines, but the paper makes sure to underline the partisanship when it’s Republicans…

DNC NY Times Reporters Join Dems in Mocking GOP Opposition to Tanden

December 3rd, 2020 8:35 AM

alongside Democrats at Republican opposition to ThinkProgress chief Neera Tanden as Biden’s choice to fill the Office of Management and Budget: “Balking at Tanden, G.O.P. Signals Fight.” Hulse in particular has a history of defending Democrats and…

NY Times Sees ‘Toxic’ Trumpy Mood in TN, But Left Can ‘Celebrate’ Wins

August 6th, 2020 5:32 PM

Thursday’s New York Times featured two distinct views of inter-party tussles. On the Republican side, they were characterized as examples of the party going “toxic over Trump,” while on the Democratic side – the party which just threw out a long-time black incumbent in Missouri and is engulfed by left-wing activism from groups like Justice Democrats – even that dramatic event was…

NYT's Hulse Pens New 'GOP Caves' Story: 'Resistance...Unsustainable'

May 16th, 2020 2:27 PM
Saturday’s New York Times cheered on the no-limits left-wing spending wishlist of congressional Democrats in “G.O.P.’s Slow Approach To Aid Risks Blowback” by congressional reporter Carl Hulse. It is Hulse’s favorite type of story, one he rewrites constantly: Democrats in Congress pressuring Republicans to cave in on one thing or another -- immigration, spending,…

NYT Lets Schumer Dictate Stimulus Coverage; GOP 'Seized on' Pelosi

March 27th, 2020 8:48 PM
New York Times congressional reporters Carl Hulse and Emily Cochrane gave the “tick-tock” on the Senate passage of a coronavirus stimulus package -- at least as told by Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer: “Passing the Stimulus: Nonstarter at A.M. To 96-0 at Midnight -- How the polarized Senate found a way to negotiate a plan to help an ailing nation.” Schumer guided the story,…

NY Times Lets Schumer Off the Hook: Dems 'Not All That Unhappy'

March 7th, 2020 2:31 PM
New York Times congressional correspondent Carl Hulse predictably shrugged off Sen. Chuck Schumer’s volatile verbal threats directed at two Supreme Court justices nominated by the Trump administration: “Schumer Regrets Content, But Not Spirit, of Warning.” Hulse generally gives Democrats the benefit of the doubt when they make nasty attacks on Republicans, and similarly shrugged…

NYT Delights in Pandemic Politics: 'Tables Turned' on GOP 'Falsehoods'

March 6th, 2020 10:35 AM
More coronavirus bias from the New York Times, with congressional reporter-columnist Carl Hulse on Thursday, “A Sense of Emergency And Fear Can Become Powerful Political Tools,” pretending that only Republicans play partisan politics with potential pandemics. And Maggie Haberman and Annie Karni positively gloated in a “news analysis,” “A Bad Week for the President,…

NY Times Journalist Engages in Bizarre, What-If Impeachment Fantasy

October 29th, 2019 10:41 AM
While reading the absurd New York Times impeachment porn fantasy by Carl Hulse, you have to pinch yourself every few sentences to remind yourself that you are actually reading a bizarre what-if written by the chief Washington correspondent for that newspaper and not the wild speculations of a DUer loon at the Democratic Underground. What-if an asteroid were to hit the planet to disrupt the…

With Hurd Leaving, CNN Pretends to Be Concerned About the GOP’s Future

August 2nd, 2019 4:35 PM
While he’s received some praise during his congressional career, the liberal media’s use of sudden respect boiled with Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) announcing that he won’t seek reelection. And, as with many cases of when GOPers either retire or pass away, the liberal media used the occasion to lament how their hated opposition just isn’t as respectable as it used to be.…

Gloating NY Times Leads With ‘Moscow Mitch’ Jibe

July 31st, 2019 6:17 PM
Congressional reporter Carl Hulse enjoyed piling on Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell just a bit too much in Wednesday’s lead New York Times slot: “Pressure Mounts On Senate Leader To Secure Ballot – Some in G.O.P. Softening – McConnell Impedes Bills, and Seethes Over Tag of ‘Moscow Mitch.’” It’s Hulse’s favorite kind of story:…

This MSNBC Analyst Runs into Left-Wing Buzzsaw with Brag-Tweet

July 26th, 2019 1:40 PM
Wednesday evening was not a good time for MSNBC analyst Howard Fineman, who posted a tweet containing a picture of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer attending a party hosted by longtime New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd. However, the newsman soon had to remove his tweet since it embarrassingly showed both liberal leaders being forced to stand outside the…

NY Times Calls on Anita Hill Once Again to Bash Joe Biden on Page One

April 27th, 2019 1:50 PM
Former senator and vice president Joe Biden is officially running for president, and once again went to Anita Hill in its front-page story Friday, “Biden’s ‘Regret’ For Hill’s Pain Fails to Soothe.” Hill is seen by the press as a victim of both Clarence Thomas and the all-white, all-male Senate Judiciary Committee. She made regular appearances in the paper…
