NYTimes Hits 'Trump-Inspired Conspiracy Mongering,' Ignores Lefty Kind

February 11th, 2020 4:39 PM
New York Times reporters Mike McIntire and Kevin Roose went after the “pro-Trump” QAnon cult, which spread the discredited “Pizzagate” conspiracy and a myriad others, on Monday’s front page, and tried hard to tie it to Donald Trump in “Web Delusion Oozes Offline To Real World.” But what of the wide world of left-wing conspiracists? For the Times, it…

NYT's 10-Page Attack on Trump Twitter's Racist, Anti Media-Madness

TechWatch
November 3rd, 2019 6:35 PM
President Trump’s dangerous Twitter. That was the paper’s overriding obsession in Sunday’s edition. The enormous story launched on the top half of the front page and jumped to a special 10-page section, “The Twitter Presidency.” The timing is apt, considering the paper is pressuring Twitter to be better than Facebook and actually squelch political messaging as the…

NYT Fact-Checks Kavanaugh on Page One -- No Scrutiny for Blasey

September 30th, 2018 9:59 AM
Rounding up New York Times coverage of the Kavanaugh saga from Saturday: It had the gall to issue a front-page fact-check on only one side of Thursday’s gripping Supreme Court testimony, in “At Points, a Judge’s Defense Misleads and Veers Off Course.” Needless to say, Christine Blasey Ford didn’t get one. The paper’s “gender editor” Jessica Bennett…

NYT Discovers College: ‘Worrisome Portrait..Unusually Drunk' Kavanaugh

September 27th, 2018 10:05 AM
The front page of Thursday’s New York Times featured more sliming of youthful Kavanaugh as a drunk in “An Emerging Portrait of a Student ‘Frequently Unusually Drunk.’” The text box: “Ex-Classmates of Judge Recall Hard Partying.” The jump-page headline snuck in a slimy adjective: “Worrisome Portrait Emerges of a Student ‘Frequently Unusually…

NYT's Guilt By Association With Kavanaugh on Page One: 'Heavy Drinker'

September 26th, 2018 3:37 PM
The front page of Wednesday’s New York Times swallowed whole Democratic talking points in the fast-moving barrage of allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The paper is moving on from the original accusation of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford and is now moving on to paranoid guilt by association, having fully embraced the shoddy New Yorker story regarding his…

NYT Sore Loser Edition: Trump's 'Radical' Picks, GOP 'Viral Nonsense'

December 18th, 2016 4:21 PM
Sunday’s New York Times may as well have been the sore loser edition, still obsessed with conjuring up links, no matter how tenuous, between Donald Trump and Russia, as shown in the off-lead story by Mike McIntire, “How Putin Fan Peddled Trump From Overseas – ‘Patriot’ Site Promoted Hoaxes to Americans.” Two other stories complained of Trump's "radical…

New York Times Displays Its Gun Fear on Sunday's Front Page

January 28th, 2013 8:12 PM
Between the multiple editorials calling for stricter gun laws and the denunciations of the NRA by its reporters, it's safe to say the urban liberals at the New York Times lack a cultural affinity for guns. Using the Sandy Hook massacre as an excuse, the paper treats as vital and disturbing Sunday front-page news something that's been going on for decades: The gun industry encouraging…

NYTimes Twice Ties Right-Leaning ALEC to Trayvon Martin Case; 'Risks o

April 24th, 2012 1:33 PM
New York Times reporter Michael Cooper, who did not hide his disdain for Republican candidate John McCain in 2008, sees an internal threat for Republicans hidden in "the recent flurry of socially conservative legislation" emanating from state legislatures in his Saturday lead, "Concern In G.O.P. Over State Focus On Social Issues." In a bid at guilt by association, both…

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…

Another Day, Another Front-Page Expose of a Tea Party Group From the N

March 31st, 2011 4:23 PM
Thursday’s front-page story by New York Times investigative reporter Mike McIntire, “Odd Alliance: Business Lobby And Tea Party.” accused a Tea Party group, the Institute for Liberty, of pushing the agenda of Asia Pulp & Paper, an Indonesian corporation fighting U.S. tariffs. Whatever the merits of this particular complaint, this sort of prominently placed, hostile…
