May 26th, 2021 8:17 PM

This week, The Wall Street Journal reported that three researchers from the Chinese Wuhan Institute of Virology were hospitalized in November 2019 with “symptoms consistent with both Covid-19 and common seasonal illness.” That report followed hard on a series of investigative pieces from journalists such as Nicholas Wade and Donald McNeil, formerly of The New York Times, who…

The Woke Madness That’s Devouring the New York Times

February 17th, 2021 8:57 AM

New York Times media columnist Ben Smith’s “Media Equation” column revealed more details regarding the ignominious ouster of veteran science reporter Donald McNeil, the paper’s coronavirus guru. Smith correctly saw symbolism in the story of an old-school liberal journalist being overthrown by young wokesters who disapprove of his supposed reactionary views and citing of the N-word…

NYT Cancels Bret Stephens Column on Paper's Bungling of N-Word Scandal

February 12th, 2021 11:47 AM

The “woke” meltdown at the New York Times continues apace. Bret Stephens, one of the few right-leaning columnists at the paper, is the latest victim of “cancellation,” or at least his latest column was. Stephens’ latest column was rejected by higher-ups at the paper. In it, Stephens excoriated his bosses and in particular Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger for the brouhaha…

The New York Times has fired a prize-winning reporter, Donald McNeil, for asking about the context in which someone used the N word.

January 27th, 2021 11:10 AM

Monday’s New York Times hosted Dr. Anthony Fauci, infectious disease expert, former coronavirus advisor to Donald Trump, and media darling, as he again unloaded on Trump: “Fauci on What Working for Trump Was Really Like.” Yet as the pandemic spread in early spring, Fauci insisted that the public shouldn't be wearing masks. He later admitted to conjuring up herd immunity numbers.…

NY Times Defends 'Scapegoat' Communist China, Cuba on Disease Response

April 20th, 2020 3:52 PM
The New York Times is quick to attack Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, but readily defends Communist countries' ways of handling contagious diseases, as on the front of Sunday’s New York Times, “G.O.P. Aiming To Make China The Scapegoat – Bid to Shift Blame Off Trump for Response.” (A guilty party cannot be a “scapegoat,” and China is undeniably guilty.) The same edition…

NY Times in Denial: ‘WHO, Now Trump’s Scapegoat, Warned About Corona'

April 17th, 2020 9:20 AM
The liberal New York Times can be relied on for knee-jerk defenses of any international organization, so the headline over a story about President Trump ordering the United States to defund the World Health Organization was unsurprising: “W.H.O., Now Trump’s Scapegoat, Warned About Coronavirus Early and Often -- The World Health Organization, always cautious, acted more forcefully and faster than…

April 16th, 2020 9:04 AM
The New York Times defended the World Health Organization and pushed a Chinese Communist Party propagandist, all the while fighting Trump’s call to halt funding for the global health group. First up on Wednesday was W.H.O., under the heading of “Shifting Responsibility,” a story by Michael Shear and Donald McNeil. “Trump, Seeing Poll Numbers Drop, Blames W.H.O. for Virus Mistakes.” A…

So Much for Civil Liberties: Communist Cuba's Mandatory AIDS Quarantin

May 9th, 2012 2:49 PM
New York Times "global health correspondent" Donald McNeil Jr. made a rare trip to Cuba and filed a report praising the Communist island's handling of the AIDS epidemic for Tuesday's "A Regime's Tight Grip on AIDS – In Cuba, rigorous testing, education, and free condoms help keep the epidemic in check." Conspiciously absent from that headline, especially for a newspaper that prides itself on…
