NYT Tries to Dismiss Rising Crime: BUT It Was Worse in the '90s!

November 4th, 2022 9:29 PM

The front page of Friday’s New York Times admitted voters were worried about crime, which may bode well for Republicans in Tuesday’s elections – but the reporters also did their best to chip away at that argument in “Fear of Crime Looms Large for Voters, to Republicans’ Advantage.” After anecdotes from three crime-concerned voters spread across the country, the Times worked…

New York Times Page One: Roe Overturning ‘an Immediate Catastrophe’

July 2nd, 2022 7:12 AM

The New York Times is not taking the Supreme Court's overruling of Roe v. Wade well. Reporter Julie Bosman made Wednesday’s front page with “Women Fear What More They Might Lose.” The text box also made the front: “Feeling Angry and Sad at the Reversal of Roe.” Bosman piled on the rage, especially when under the guise of being included in a front-page “news” story.

NYT Likes Halting Border COVID Rules, Next Warns It May 'Swell Anew'

April 2nd, 2022 1:07 PM

So is the COVID pandemic receding, or does it threaten to “swell anew”? Don’t ask the New York Times. It offered up both versions in twinned off-lead stories on Thursday’s front page, depending on which way the paper had to spin the danger to please the left: "....public health experts who have said that migrants do not pose a serious transmission risk, especially at this point in the…

HYPOCRITES: The NY Times Cares About Some Violence, Just Not THIS

September 3rd, 2020 12:20 PM

Coverage from the New York Times of the spate of left-wing rioting and attacks on conservatives remains stuck in denial mode, as unwittingly demonstrated in “Three Conspiracy Theories, Debunked." While purporting to knock Trump, the Times actually reveal their paper’s own galling dismissal of left-wing thuggery against conservatives like Sen. Rand Paul.

What’s the Matter With Kansas? NYT Says ‘Beleaguered’ Brownback

July 28th, 2017 2:44 PM
The New York Times, never overly interested in Middle America, has nonetheless long had the knives out for Kansas’ Republican Gov. Sam Brownback, striving to make him a national example of the perils of foolish tax cutting and delighting in his “failed” right-wing experiment in Kansas. Mitch Smith and Jacey Fortin. “Kansas Governor to Be Nominated as Ambassador.” The reporters took precisely four…

Another ‘Passionate’ NYT Attack on Kris Kobach, Scourge of Vote Fraud

May 15th, 2017 5:34 PM
Monday’s New York Times used a new White House office to go after a conservative who represents two of the things it most loathes: limits on immigration and crackdowns on vote fraud. Both trends are encapsulated in the person of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach. Reporters Michael Wines and Julie Bosman penned: “A ‘Passionate’ Seeker of Voter Fraud in Kansas Gets a National Soapbox.”

To the Shelves? NYT Provides More Space to Silly Anti-Trump Resistance

February 17th, 2017 5:43 PM
The New York Times provided more publicity for the anti-Trump resistance with “Bookstores Stoke Resistance With Action, Not Just Books – Places of Business, and Hubs of Protest.” Three weeks ago, the NYT was also using the self-indulgent liberal theme of books as rebellion, finding ‘eerie parallels' between dystopian Books Like '1984' and the Trump presidency, though iconoclastic journalist…

NYT Hypocritically Dismisses Vote Rigging Concerns in Anti-Trump Storm

October 19th, 2016 3:14 PM
On the eve of the final presidential debate, Wednesday’s New York Times went after Donald Trump cover to cover, with attempts to shame the Republican nominee and a cavalier dismissal of his allegations of election rigging as racist and paranoid, though the Times was quite amenable to Democratic conspiracy theories about Bush stealing the 2004 election. Wednesday’s off-lead story by Trip Gabriel…

NYT Finds Racist Dog Whistles in 'Death Panels,' 'All Lives Matter'

July 11th, 2016 9:37 AM
New York Times Midwest correspondent Julie Bosman learned an "alarming" new term from Kansas conservatives for Sunday’s edition: “The Right’s Wording for Public Education in Kansas: ‘Government Schools.’” Some other sneaky terms concocted by conservatives to pull the wool over voters eyes? “Tax relief.” “Pro-life.” “The Democrat Party.” “Death panels.” And another Times writer revealed how…

NYT: Scientists 'Startled' at Great Lakes' Rise; Another Warmist Predi

June 30th, 2014 9:13 AM
An undated but clearly recent page at the National Wildlife Federation breathlessly warns readers, in a section entitled "Threats from Global Warming," that "Lake Erie water levels, already below average, could drop 4-5 feet by the end of this century, significantly altering shoreline habitat." A Thursday Huffington Post Canada Business entry observed that "the (Great Lakes) basin has…

Homeless Official, NYT Obfuscate Significance of Jan. '09-Jan. '10 Spi

March 22nd, 2010 4:06 PM
Sometimes, certain claims made by establishment media reporters or people who are quoted don't pass the smell test. Then, when you dig in, to borrow a phrase from Michael Savage, the stench makes you clench. Such is the case with a front-page story ("Number of People Living on New York Streets Soars") that went up online at the New York Times late Friday, and appeared in its Saturday print…

NYT Finds Smart Folks for Obama, Media-Heckling Racists for Palin

October 9th, 2008 9:55 AM
The smart folks soberly support Barack Obama, while the ridiculous-looking rednecks love Sarah Palin. That's the subtext of the New York Times coverage on Wednesday. Jennifer Steinhauer was watching the second presidential debate with Obama fans at a Mexican restaurant in Des Moines, "Where He First Got Going, Cheering Obama On." Debate watchers at Dos Rios -- the sort of crowd that can cite…

Rock-Star Puffery for Obama in NY Times: Plus Obama vs. Cosby on Black

June 17th, 2008 4:55 PM
The front page of Monday's New York Times featured Jeff Zeleny and Jim Rutenberg's pro-Obama puffery, "Obama the Delegator Picks When to Take Reins." Like rock journalists following Bono, the Times reporters seem utterly fascinated by the minutia of Obama's day, while taking a few potshots at a Bush administration it's already condemned as doomed to perdition in the history books.Like most…
