Jason Horowitz at the New York Times thinks that Hillary Clinton shouldn't bother dealing with the press.

NY Times Dogs Scott Walker With Front-Page Silliness

April 1st, 2015 10:35 PM
After several slanted stories seemingly designed to cripple the nascent Scott Walker for president campaign before it has even been launched, the New York Times descended into utter silliness in its latest snipe at the Wisconsin Governor: He's allergic to dog dander.

NY Times Again Puffs Up Race-Monger Al Sharpton's 'Civil Rights' Leade

August 26th, 2014 10:37 AM
Race-baiter turned MSNBC host Al Sharpton garnered an egregiously fawning profile in Monday's New York Times, which has long hailed the "civil rights leader" while glossing over or ignoring his racially inflammatory past (Tawana Brawley, "white interlopers"). The worst criticism reporters Nikita Stewart and Jason Horowitz can muster in "A Slimmed-Down Sharpton…

Same WashPost That Praised Cory Booker, Despite His Phony Stories, Sla

May 8th, 2014 7:59 AM
There are two black U.S. Senators, Democrat Cory Booker of New Jersey and Republican Tim Scott of South Carolina. The Washington Post demonstrated a blatant partisan tilt toward the former by cooing over Booker’s brilliance and national profile last year. The Post omitted Booker flat-out making things up, inventing a drug-dealer called “T-Bone” to tell inner-city stories.…

NY Times Fawns Over Obama's 'Catholic Roots,' Ignores Rev. Wright's Co

March 23rd, 2014 12:08 PM
Barack Obama, Catholic in spirit? That was the tone of "The Catholic Roots of Obama's Activism," Jason Horowitz's fawning front-page Sunday New York Times profile of Obama's brief mid-1980s spell as a Catholic-affiliated political activist in Chicago. According to Horowitz, the young Obama was "steeped in the social justice wing of the church" before becoming an…

August 28th, 2013 11:37 AM
The national media’s love affair with New Jersey’s Cory Booker continued in The Washington Post on Tuesday. On the front of the Style section was the headline “A perfect senator for ‘This Town’?

June 17th, 2013 10:41 AM
Apparently, it’s lucrative work to be “entrusted to safeguard the president’s image and legacy.” The Washington Post “Reliable Source” gossips Monday reported that White House spinner Dan Pfeiffer has bought an almost-million-dollar penthouse condo.

WashPost Misleads on Catholics, Jokes Pope Francis Is An 'Infallible M

March 19th, 2013 7:34 AM
Secular reporters can easily show a lack of expertise when they crack wise that the pope is “infallible” in everything he does, as if he never sins or makes mistakes -- as if he's the man to fill our your March Madness bracket, because he cannot fail. In fact, the definition of church teaching is much narrower, only that the pope cannot err when he speaks for the church on…

WashPost's Horowitz Mars Otherwise Decent Item on Pope Benedict XVI wi

February 27th, 2013 12:44 PM
Washington Post staff writer Jason Horowitz marred an otherwise decent Style section feature item on Pope Benedict's resignation in his lead paragraph, which made a crack about the pontiff's retirement by hoping it goes off better than that of Pope Celestine V, whom Dante supposedly envisioned in Hell: VATICAN CITY — On an April 2009 visit to the Italian mountain town of…

On her Current TV show Say Anything on Tuesday night, Joy Behar brought on two political consultants to discuss the Pope’s resignation.

WashPost's Horowitz Hails Sen. Chuck Schumer for Embracing 'Obama's Ol

January 31st, 2013 4:11 PM
He probably shouldn't quit his day job, but Jason Horowitz may want to try his hand at an amateur comedy night sometime. After all, the Washington Post staff writer published a laughable 36-paragraph profile of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D) today which hailed the senior New York senator as a leftie who has "embraced Obama's old bipartisan religion" of late "in a move to realize…

WashPost's Horowitz Devotes 36-Paragraph Puff Piece to 'Sleepless' Oba

October 30th, 2012 8:21 PM
President Obama's gimmicky 48-hour campaign swing last week was given gauzy treatment on the front page of the October 30 Washington Post Style page. Staff writer Jason Horowitz devoted a 36-paragraph story headlined "Sleepless in the swing states" to the venture. Horowitz opened with "the president's electoral mastermind" David Plouffe as his protagonist. Plouffe…

WashPost Prints Massive Story on Romney's Mormon Designs on Power

October 18th, 2012 6:40 PM
In the age where the 800+ word column is dead, The Washington Post seemed to make an exception Thursday for political writer Jason Horowitz to explore a sterile saga about Mitt Romney’s ’94 Massachusetts senate run against Ted Kennedy.   The question is why did The Washington Post decide it was pertinent to publish this 3,800-word piece at this point in time?  Is it…
