California Scheming? NY Times Uses Fires to Burn Trump’s 2020 Chances

September 17th, 2020 12:13 PM

New York Times reporters dealt with the deadly state of wildfires in California on Monday’s front page, but used it solely as a cudgel with which to bash President Trump, in two front-page stories: “Trump, a Bold Climate Denier, Confronts a Charred California" and “Spurred By Fires, Trump and Biden Clash On Climate."

New York Times: Trump 'Darth Vader-like Figure' on Environment

July 9th, 2019 2:28 PM
New York Times political reporter Katie Rogers teamed with environmental reporter Coral Davenport for Trump mockery on Tuesday’s front page: “In Speech, Trump Portrays U.S. As a Leader on the Environment.” That benign headline hid deep bias. The current online headline reflected the story’s actual tone by quoting a Trump critic: “Trump Saw Opportunity in Speech on…

NY Times on Climate Change: Trump Hunkered Against ‘Facts...Science'

March 1st, 2019 4:00 PM
New York Times environmental reporter Coral Davenport returned to a favorite subject on Friday, “As G.O.P.

NYT Actually Runs 'G.O.P. Pounces' Over Story on Botched Green Deal

February 12th, 2019 7:27 PM
It’s almost predictable at this point: Democrats embarrass themselves, and the media frames it not as a Democratic error, but as a case of cynical Republicans “pouncing” for political advantage. The latest example was a New York Times story on the thoroughly botched embarrassment that was the launch of the radical Green New Deal: “Lawmaker’s Staff Flubs Green New…

NY Times: 'Startling Breach of Decorum' on Drinking Jabs...from GOP

December 2nd, 2018 7:58 AM
The New York Times was shocked, shocked, to find “a startling breach of decorum and of the norms” by a member of President Trump’s cabinet.

NYT's Davenport Makes Front Page: 'Science Is Unwelcome' Under Trump

June 10th, 2018 6:09 PM
On the front page of Sunday’s New York Times, environmental reporter Coral Davenport devoted over 2,000 words to the Trump administration's alleged "retreat from scince." The headline made the proposition clear: “In the Trump Administration, Science Is Unwelcome. So Is Advice.” To Davenport, "science" includes support for the liberal climate change…

Backfire: NYT’s Hit on Rick Perry's Energy Dept. Ignorance Sputters

January 19th, 2017 3:00 PM
The New York Times went to enormous (and utterly unsubstantiated) lengths to portray former Texas Gov. Rick Perry as a oil-man rube over his head as the potential Energy Secretary, in “Perry Seeks Cabinet Job He Initially Misconstrued.” 

NY Times Rants on 'Denier' Trump’s Threat to Climate Legislation

November 20th, 2016 10:46 AM
On the front page of Saturday’s New York Times, environmental reporter Coral Davenport filed from Morocco on how shell-shocked diplomats at an international climate conference were responding to Trump’s election victory (spoiler: not well) in “Climate Pact Negotiators Confront a New Peril.” While Davenport went into loving detail on how the international community could…

On PBS, Scribes Gush for Hillary's 'Even More Ambitious' Climate Plan

September 8th, 2016 9:44 PM
On the surface, it might seem quite straightforward and objective to ask two reporters to assess the two candidates on their “climate change” policy approaches. But on Wednesday’s PBS NewsHour, the reporters were not at all objective. They were Chris Mooney of The Washington Post, who was hired after he wrote the transparently ideological books The Republican War on Science, and…

NYT's Bias Boils Over in Paris: 'News' Stories Plea for Climate Action

December 1st, 2015 6:12 PM
The New York Times' coverage of the international climate change summit in Paris remained on an aggressive boil, as Coral Davenport and Gardiner Harris' report from France Tuesday, "Citing Urgency, World Leaders Converge on France for Climate Meeting," hit the same set of alarmist notes Davenport did in her previous story from Paris. And Justin Gillis, the paper's most…

Overheated NYT Warns of 'Catastrophic Events' if Climate Talks Fail

November 30th, 2015 8:39 PM
Hyperbole much? The New York Times brought predictably alarmist and overheated coverage to the climate talks in Paris, while lauding President Obama's attempt to make a legacy fighting "global warming." Environmental Reporter Coral Davenport gushed: "On Sunday night he arrives in Paris, hoping to make climate policy the signature environmental achievement of his, and perhaps…

NYT Eagerly Cites Pope on Climate Change, Cheers Capitalism Criticism

June 19th, 2015 4:24 PM
Strange new religious respect: The formal release of Pope Francis's long-anticipated encyclical on global warming dominated Friday's New York Times, which avidly covered it from both environmental and religious angles -- quite unlike the paper's hostile treatment of the Vatican's stands on abortion and birth control. Laurie Goodstein, the paper's chief religion reporter,…
