On the fourth and last night of the Republican National Convention, the New York Times strangely issued fact checks not just for facts, but for warnings and predictions from Republican speakers if Democrats won the presidency.  And each night, the paper’s team of live commentators offered gross, personal insults to the speakers: "...on the first day of the R.N.C. we…

July 24th, 2019 8:03 PM
Wednesday was Mueller Day on Capitol Hill.

June 2nd, 2019 5:12 PM
Saturday’s New York Times “news analysis” was filled with regret that straight-shooting Robert Mueller was outfoxed by dastardly Donald Trump and his “handpicked” sidekick Attorney General William Barr.

March 24th, 2019 2:59 PM
After 22 months of speculation, special counsel Robert Mueller released to Attorney General Bill Barr on Friday afternoon his report on allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 election (which the press and Democrats winnowed down to the catch-all accusation of “collusion”).

May 13th, 2018 4:03 PM
The New York Times’ attacks on the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep.

Knocking Trump, NYT Downplays Danger of MS-13 Gang on Front Page

March 2nd, 2018 11:45 AM
Some crimes, like the Parkland massacre, earn the full outraged attention of the New York Times, which is fitting.
