NYT's Sleazy ‘News’:Tucker ‘Targeted’ Duckworth ‘With Nativist Smears'
July 10th, 2020 1:00 PM
New York Times reporter Reid Epstein wept on Thursday over the “nativist smears” poor Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) was force to endure at the hands of popular Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson. Reid fumed under the headline: “After Fox Host Questions Her Patriotism, Senator Who Lost Legs to War Hits Back.” Epstein played the racist card to protect Duckworth from any…
NYT Spreads Election Conspiracy: ‘How Far Would Trump Go to Keep Job?'
May 26th, 2020 8:06 AM
The feverish conspiracy theories (will Trump cancel the November elections? Will he refuse to accept a loss?) have spread from late-night “comedians” to the august pages of the New York Times, in the form of the lead National section story on Memorial Day. Reporter Reid Epstein began by spouting resistance fan-fiction in “How Far Would Trump Go to Keep Job? Foes Brainstorm…
NYT Calls Trump’s Vote-by-Mail Fraud Claim ‘False,’ Saw ‘Fraud’ in '12
April 11th, 2020 2:38 PM
The New York Times sounded awfully confident: “Falsehoods And Facts On Voting By Mail – Trump Claims High Risk Of Fraud. He’s Wrong,” by Stephanie Saul and Reid Epstein. Which makes it incredibly hypocritical that the paper made the opposite argument in 2012, one they now call “false," with reporter Adam Liptak writing, "The flaws of absentee voting raise…
NYTimes Front Page: Trump ‘Rewriting History’ to Save His Reelection
March 25th, 2020 8:30 AM
The New York Times is consumed with using the coronavirus crisis against President Trump, with Monday’s front-page “news analysis” mocking the very idea of presidential leadership during the pandemic in “Trump Shifts Image: Leader For ‘Wartime.’” Times reporters sneered: "This gambit, however, requires a rewriting of history -- Mr. Trump’s…
NYTimes Hails 'Moderate' Buttigieg, But Also Suggests Reporter Sexism
February 8th, 2020 2:10 PM
The New York Times trumpeted Pete Buttigieg’s top-tier Iowa caucus performance on Saturday’s front page in “How Buttigieg Became Surprise of Iowa Caucuses.” Plus: Are young male campaign reporters treating Buttigieg with "kid gloves" at Elizabeth Warren's expense? "...Ms. Warren’s allies, who have seen her frequently faced with questions about…
NY Times? Buttigieg, Klobuchar ‘Centrist,’ WP’s Rubin ‘Conservative'
October 25th, 2019 6:58 PM
As the presidential race deepens, the New York Times is trying to convince voters that two safely liberal Democratic candidates are in fact moderates or even “centrists.” They went all out on Thursday’s front page, with reporter Reid Epstein’s “Buttigieg Slips Into the Lane To Biden’s Left.” The jump-page headline: “Buttigieg Slips Into a Centrist…
NY Times Tries to Motivate Black Vote Against Racist Trump on Page One
August 4th, 2019 6:51 PM
Reporters Reid Epstein and Jonathan Martin devoted 1,800 words on the New York Times Sunday front page to getting out the black vote against Donald Trump in 2020, in “Trump’s Words Fuel Racial Strife. How Will Black Voters Respond?” Along the way, they issued a conspiracy-agent theory about how Trump is trying to stifle blacks from voting Democrat by...mentioning his criminal…
Weeks Later, Press Finally Notes DNC Chair's Descent Into Profanity
April 23rd, 2017 10:39 PM
The combination of losing the House, and then the Senate, and then the presidency (to Donald Trump, of all people), while losing over 900 other legislative and executive branch seats in states throughout the land, has apparently led Tom Perez, the Democratic Party's new chairman, to believe that the party must curse its way back into power to properly motivate the faithful. Knowing that such…
At the Wall Street Journal, Politico Refugee Epstein Plays the 'Hitler
June 11th, 2014 2:00 PM
It took less than two hours for leftist media types to imply that voters in VA-07 who ousted House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in last night's Republican congressional primary did so partly because of Cantor's Jewish faith. It took less than 12 hours for Politico refugee Reid Epstein, now inexplicably at the Wall Street Journal, to go after Brat with a misleading headline —…
If Not Him, Then Who? Politico's Epstein Highlights President's Obamac
December 7th, 2013 7:35 AM
The ongoing effort to insulate President Barack Obama from the negative consequences of his "signature achievement," not only with the HealthCare.gov web site but also his false "If you like your plan-doctor-provider, you can keep your plan-doctor-provider" guarantees, is a sickening sight to behold.
Reid Epstein at the Politico contributed one small chapter in that…
Obama: What I Said Was You Can Keep Your Health Care Plan 'If It Hasn
November 4th, 2013 10:17 PM
Update, Nov. 5, 8:30 a.m.: Video added below.
Well, let's see how well this unspeakably pathetic attempt to explain away the lie of the century (so far) works with the establishment press.
Two separate tweeters — Reid Epstein at Politico and Mark Knoller at CBS News — are reporting that President Obama, at a rally of the Organizing For Action faithful this evening, told his…
Politico Redacted: Republicans Having Hearings on Disastrous HealthCar
October 21st, 2013 10:18 PM
Earlier today, as seen here in a clone post elsewhere, the Politico reported, as if it is an undisputed fact, that "Republican opponents of the law (Obamacare) are preparing for their own victory lap." That alleged "victory lap" will be the "first hearing to spotlight the faulty Obamacare website."
Apparently that intemperance was a bit much even for the clearly…
Politico: Obama, in Govt. Shutdown, Puts on a 'Display of Resolve and
October 1st, 2013 7:20 PM
The folks in office administration at the Politico had better put in for extra janitorial help. With all the horse manure their reporters are slinging during the partial government shutdown, it's gotta be getting knee-deep in those hoary halls.
One of the more egregious examples of insufferable obsequiousness today came late this morning via Edward-Isaac Dovere and Reid J. Epstein. You see,…
Politico Pity Party: 'President Obama’s Toughest Syria Hurdle' Is 'T
September 8th, 2013 4:44 PM
Poor Barack Obama can't catch a break. If the world would just stop and pay attention to him for a while, things would be so much better for and so much easier on Dear Leader.
That's the takeaway from a pathetic piece ("President Obama’s toughest Syria hurdle: The calendar") by Reid Epstein at Politico. It's as if no other president has had to compete with Monday…
