December 27th, 2019 8:46 PM

On Thursday’s Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough held a panel discussion focused on “what it would take for evangelicals to turn on President Trump.” In what has become a commonplace occurrence on Morning Joe, members of the panel attempted to portray evangelicals as racist; claiming that their support for the President stems from their shared belief in “xenophobia” and “nativism.”

NYT: Jewish 'Subpar Education' vs Islamic 'Memorizing Way to Heaven'

December 5th, 2018 9:19 AM
The New York Times vastly disparate treatment of Orthodox Jewish schools, or yeshivas, versus Islamic ones came into focus in Tuesday’s edition. The online headline was harsh: “Do Children Get a Subpar Education in Yeshivas? New York Says It Will Finally Find Out.” Reporter Eliza Shapiro was damning in her critique of the Jewish private schools for not teaching secular subjects…

NYT Reporter: Lower Headcount and Higher Spending Are Contradictory

July 27th, 2017 9:58 PM
When the establishment press isn't criticizing center-right outlets as fact-challenged and not objective, it's dismissing them as irrelevant and unimportant. If that's really the case, that would lead one to wonder why a seasoned New York Times reporter was bothering to look at a story published at, let alone tweeting his breathtaking ignorance about the content of…

Ohio Tea Party Leader Slams NYT's Ignorant and Biased Report on Groups

June 3rd, 2013 11:55 PM
On May 27, Nicholas Confessore and Michael Luo at the New York Times filed a ridiculously incoherent, ignorant and biased report on Tea Party groups' attempts to have their organizations approved for tax-exempt status. The story's window title: "Non-Profit Applcants Chafing at IRS Tested Political Limits." The actual print edition title (Page A1, of course): "Groups…

It's Not Just ABC and WashPost Who'll Skip Finding That Majority of Wo

April 21st, 2013 2:53 PM
On April 18, a new Washington Post/ABC News poll that showed 51% of Americans feel that guns in the home make it safer, compared to 29% who think otherwise. More telling is that fact that 51% of white middle class women agree with the sentiment about firearms making homes safer.  Additionally, a Nexis search detailed that ABC News has yet to report this poll, and, with the exception of the…

NYT's Michael Luo Confidently Asserts Gun Restrictions on Violent Men

March 19th, 2013 3:15 PM
Monday's lead New York Times story was a long investigation by Michael Luo into what the Times sees as an NRA-fueled failure to properly protect women from former spouses by allowing the men to keep guns: "Ruled a Threat to Family, But Allowed to Keep Guns – Weapons Advocates Oppose States' Efforts to Bolster Orders of Protection." Luo's usual beat is campaign…

NYTimes Again Tries to Get Feds Interested in Probing GOP Fundraising

February 28th, 2012 12:43 PM
Another campaign cycle, another chance for the New York Times to sic the government on GOP fund-raising groups? The gang from 2010 (Mike McIntire and Michael  Luo, pictured) got back together for Sunday’s front-page story, “Fine Line Between ‘Super PACs’ and Campaigns.” Luo in particular wrote several articles in 2010 suggesting the IRS and the Federal…

'Romney Riches Are Being Seen as New Hurdle,' at the NYTimes, Anyway

January 20th, 2012 9:54 AM
The New York Times has been going to town on controversies over Mitt Romney’s money, from his personal tax rate to the work of Bain Capital, the private equity firm he co-founded. Thursday’s front page story goes into excruciating detail on what is known about Romney's wealth, under the self-fulfilling headline “Romney Riches Are Being Seen as New Hurdle,” by…

NYT's Anti-Concealed Carry Report Actually Proves That No. Carolina an

December 28th, 2011 10:59 PM
It seems that if you're a New York Times reporter on a mission to prove something you think must be obvious and your research leads to the exact opposite result from what you smugly expected, you forge ahead and try to pretend that you proved your point anyway. At least that how it seems to have worked out for Times reporter Michael Luo in a report appearing in Tuesday's print edition…

NYT Reporter Desperately Searches for Signs of Economic Progress to Pr

June 25th, 2010 6:22 PM
Please don't let it be Big Bob!Please don't let it be Big Bob!That fervent prayer by Harold of "Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay" as he desperately hopes that sound of the approaching footsteps don't belong to a sadistic guard named Big Bob comes to mind when reading a New York Times article by Michael Luo. In Luo's case he is hoping that the Republicans won't gain…

Obama's Untraceable Online Donations: Absent from NY Times

October 31st, 2008 5:26 PM
Heard anything about Barack Obama's sleazy online fundraising, where thanks to purposely lax security measures his site is able to receive untraceable donations from obviously fake names? Not if you've been reading the print edition of the New York Times. The Washington Post has run two stories, most recently on Wednesday: "Obama Accepting Untraceable Donations: Contributions Reviewed After…

Hard News? NYT Runs Three Gossip Items on Palin Wardrobe

October 24th, 2008 3:56 PM
After putting it on Thursday's front page, the New York Times was still harping on Gov. Palin's wardrobe and who picked it out in three I.Q. melting stories in Friday's edition: "Wardrobe Mysteries Linger..." by Michael Luo and Eric Wilson, "...And a Whiff of Clarity" by Luo alone, plus a Metro section story. In "Clarity," Luo tried to nail down the role in this…

Sarah Palin's Wardrobe Front-Page News at NY Times

October 23rd, 2008 3:55 PM
When Politico revealed the Republican National Committee spent $150,000 outfitting Sarah Palin and her family after she was picked as John McCain's running mate, one would assume it would be worthy of a brief, snarky story buried on the New York Times's "Caucus" page, filled mostly with anonymous Republicans griping about campaign spending priorities. But Patrick Healy and Michael Luo's…
