Camerota Lobs Softballs at NYT Columnist After His BONKERS Post

January 7th, 2019 4:16 PM
My colleague Clay Waters wrote Monday morning about a crazy column in Sunday’s New York Times by David Leonhardt that demanded the removal of President Trump due to his supposed violations of the emoluments clause and Russian collusion. But when you’re a liberal and offer wacky proposals (see Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her tax rate proposal), the liberal media will treat you seriously and CNN’s…

NYT Former Washington Bureau Chief Screams: Impeach Trump Now!

January 7th, 2019 11:25 AM
David Leonhardt made the front of the New York Times Sunday Review wanting Congress to hurry up with the vital task of impeaching President Trump in “The People vs. Donald J. Trump.” The subhead: “He is demonstrably unfit for office. What are we waiting for?” Leonhardt, who was the paper's Washington bureau chief from 2011-2013, garnered front-page, over-the-fold placement in the prominent Sunday…

NYT Columnists Scared, Angry Over Kavanaugh (And You Better Be Too)

October 9th, 2018 2:08 PM
It’s evidently going to take some time for the post-Kavanaugh confirmation healing to begin at the New York Times. With near unanimity the paper’s columnists, some of them former reporters, are reacting with anger and contempt over Trump’s victory against the Democrat’s Supreme Court smear campaign. Columnist Paul Krugman  rehashed his tired old line about “The Paranoid Style in G.O.P. Politics…

New York Times on Roaring Trump Economy: Change How It Is Measured

September 15th, 2018 1:35 PM
Perhaps some of you might remember a familiar scene while playing poker during your teen years. Very frequently someone who was upset at how the game was doing would yell out "DEUCES WILD!" to change the rules. It was especially suspicious if the person had just been dealt a new hand before yelling out that rule change. Well, New York Times op-ed columnist David Leonhardt is essentially yelling…

At NY Times, Leonhardt Stretches IG's Conclusions to Breaking Point

June 15th, 2018 7:49 PM
David Leonhardt's Friday New York Times column about President Donald Trump's reactions to the Inspector General's report on the FBI's and Department of Justice's pre-2016 general election actions is treating it as a blanket exoneration. Therefore, everything Presidential Donald Trump has said about it is a lie.

NY Times Mounts Sexist Attacks on Susan Collins Over Tax Bill Support

December 22nd, 2017 8:58 PM
On Tuesday, Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins bitterly attacked the press's coverage of her decision to vote for the GOP's tax bill. Though Collins didn't name a media outlet in her criticism, the New York Times has been the primary purveyor of now-popular leftist memes, which Collins characterized as "unbelievably sexist," that she was "duped" by party leadership, and that she was so hard-…

NY Times Attacks Trump Adviser Bannon With ‘Fascist’ Smear

February 14th, 2017 1:34 PM
New York Times’ hard-left political reporter Jason Horowitz slimed President Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon, based on a second-hand reference in a speech Bannon gave two years ago. The distortion appeared in Sunday’s paper under the bias-on-steroids headline, “Fascists Too Lax for a Philosopher Cited by Bannon.” Bannon’s actual 2014 speech revealed that he’s not wholly on board with…

Extensive NYT Study Calls for Job Cuts, Diversity...Same Old Politics

January 18th, 2017 8:59 AM
If its frantic anti-Trump post-victory coverage hasn't given it away, a new internal report from the New York Times made clear the journalistic organization has failed to learned anything from Trump’s election victory. While the 8,700-word report and an accompanying memo from the brass emphasized the need to improve the race and gender diversity of the paper (but with fewer editors), it said…

NYT’s Leonhardt Whines: ‘Democrats Had a Knife, G.O.P. a Gun’

December 21st, 2016 5:40 PM
Another version of the liberal media’s self-serving falsehood that Democrats just play too nicely to win the Washington game appeared in Tuesday’s New York Times: David Leonhardt, former Washington bureau chief for the paper, subbed for David Brooks on Tuesday’s opinion page to whine that in the 2016 election cycle, “Democrats Had a Knife, G.O.P. a Gun."Leonhardt apparently forgot the threats…

NYT Journalist on MSNBC: 'Media Should Have A Lot of Humility'

November 30th, 2016 5:00 PM
On Wednesday’s Morning Joe, as the usual liberal commentators and co-hosts were discussing the ongoing Trump transition appointments to the most important economic positions in the federal government, co-host Willie Geist invited and asked New York Times journalist David Leonhardt: “So, do you do you read anything into these appointments in the last 24 hours, to Commerce Secretary Wilber Ross or …

As Polls Tighten, NY Times Editor Tries to Calm 'Bed-Wetting' Dems

November 3rd, 2016 7:55 PM
The New York Times David Leonhardt, a gullible fan of high taxes and Obamacare, rather pathetically tried to calm the nerves of “bed-wetting” Democrats by citing an op-ed from Obama’s 2012 campaign manager, in an online post titled  “Don’t Bother With National Polls.” (So why is the Times currently trumpeting its own national poll on its main page?) Earlier in the week Leonhardt conducted a mini-…

Will NY Times Declare a 'Manufacturing Recession,' As It Did in 2007?

January 5th, 2016 11:08 PM
On Monday, the Institute for Supply Management's Manufacturing Index for December came in showing contraction for the second consecutive month, and with a slightly worse reading (48.2 percent, versus 48.6 percent in November; any reading below 50 percent signifiies contraction). These two results followed readings which just slipped over the expansion bar (50.2 and 50.1 percent, respectively) in…

Ridiculous: NYT's Leonhardt, Brookings Spin Student-Loan Debt as a Non

June 25th, 2014 12:42 AM
On Tuesday, the Brookings Institution, with a David Leonhardt column at the New York Times serving as its de facto press release, published a study (full PDF here) entitled, "Is a Student Loan Crisis on the Horizon?" Unsurprisingly, their finding, in one word, was "No." Their more qualifed finding: "[I]n reality, the impact of student loans may not be as dire as many commentators fear." Their…

NYT Public Editor Says Paper Playing Down Benghazi; Dismissive Hearing

May 8th, 2013 12:19 PM
Benghazi hearings open in the House on Wednesday, and the New York Times printed a preview on page 16 of Wednesday's edition that downplayed any possible revelations about the Obama administration's reaction to the terrorist attack, which killed ambassador Chris Stevens and three others. Testimony is expected by three State Department officials, led by U.S. diplomat Gregory Hicks, deputy…
