NY Times: GOP Using ‘Lies…To Stoke Fear and Hatred’ On Trans Kids

April 9th, 2022 11:20 PM

The New York Times is again trying to pose the mainstream consensus on children and transgender issues -- and legislation like the Florida law that liberals falsely call “Don’t Say Gay” -- as dangerous, even suggesting it may encourage transgender youth to commit suicide: "Bazelon points out that this political strategy relies partly on lies that seem intended to stoke fear and hatred…

July 15th, 2021 10:05 AM

During the Iraq War in 2003 and Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, the New York Times haughtily defended Democrats against having their patriotism questioned by conservatives -- something which almost never happened.

August 8th, 2020 3:15 PM

Are American freedom and individualism to blame for the failure to contain the coronavirus? That was one premise of the lead story in Friday’s New York Times by David Leonhardt: “U.S. Is Alone Among Peers In Failing to Contain Virus – 2 Major Causes: Individualist Tradition and Trump Administration Missteps.” The paper also panicked over a big biker rally in South Dakota, after not…

Unmasking Mask Hypocrisy at the New York Times and Time Magazine

May 23rd, 2020 1:50 PM
New York Times reporter Annie Karni followed President Trump on a tour of a Ford plant in Michigan and adopted a judgmental tone in her Friday story when Trump refused to wear a protective face mask in front of reporters. The paper also went after Mike Pence for his mask faux pas at the Mayo Clinic. But just how consistent has the New York Times and other print outlets been in moralizing over the…

NY Times Editor Finds Media's Problem: ‘What About Centrist Bias?’

December 25th, 2019 9:01 PM
New York Times’ former Washington bureau chief-turned-columnist David Leonhardt has found the problem with the press -- they’re just too middle of the road: “What About Centrist Bias?” The subject line to Monday’s e-mail newsletter questioned the existence of “Liberal bias?” The online headline made it clearer: “How ‘Centrist Bias’ Hurts Sanders and Warren -- The media has a bigger problem than…

NY Times: ‘Conservatism Has a Violence Problem,’ Same Goal as Killers

August 5th, 2019 5:27 PM
Two New York Times writers tried to use the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton to condemn not just Donald Trump and his rhetoric, but the policies of the Republican Party in general.

July 27th, 2019 10:40 AM
Liberal journalist fervor for the #MeToo movement comes packed with caveats and reservations when the target is Democratic politicians -- but it’s open season on conservative figures.

NY Times Not Enjoying Mueller Time: ‘Pouncing’ GOP, Blaming Barr

March 26th, 2019 11:21 AM
With the Mueller report out and the top-line conclusions (no “collusion,” no obstruction of justice) thoroughly chewed over, the New York Times is clearly disappointed. A “live update” featured these petulant subheads, blaming the Republicans for taking political advantage of Trump’s vindication: “Trump immediately attacks ‘the other side.’ "“Minutes after the details are released, Republicans…

NY Times Reporter-Turned-Columnist: 'Trump Encourages Violence'

March 18th, 2019 3:59 PM
New York Times David Leonhardt’s Monday column came right out and said it: “Trump Encourages Violence.” The Times is  trying to find a rise of hate crimes that it can blame on the president. Trump made some rhetorical flourishes in an interview with the right-wing news site Breitbart, which nonetheless didn’t rise to the level of a “threat,” and certainly not the “white nationalist” threat…

Surprise! NYT Finds Bias. But It’s the ‘Hard Right Propaganda’ Variety

February 4th, 2019 10:27 AM
The headline looked promising: “The Six Forms of Media Bias” from the weekday newsletter of New York Times writer David Leonhardt. Would a confession of liberal media bias follow?
