Gag: New NYT Editor Tapped, Poses in CREEPY Photo Spread for NY Mag

April 20th, 2022 8:46 AM

Joseph Kahn is the new executive editor of the New York Times, replacing current editor Dean Baquet, who is retiring. Kahn was the paper’s Beijing bureau chief in the 2000s. Coverage of Baquet’s tenure avoided the paper’s left-wing woke meltdowns of recent years and even suggested the paper was annoying liberals.

September 19th, 2021 6:37 AM

New York Times media reporter Michael Grynbaum devoted 2,300 words to profiling President Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki. It reeked of cringy attempts to be hip while relaying shout-outs from Psaki’s online fan club: "...a cult of Psaki has proliferated online, where clips of her restrained, if occasionally withering exchanges with reporters have established this once obscure…
