NY Times Sees ‘Rising Star’ Dems vs. Controversial GOP Hacks

December 6th, 2019 5:15 PM
New York Times impeachment testimony coverage on Thursday almost completely ignored the labored, pseudo-clever mean pun from law professor Pamela Karlan, who bizarrely named Trump’s 13-year-old son Barron to make some unrelated point. The controversy, which inflamed Republicans and even made some liberals cringe, was relegated to the last two paragraphs of the paper’s large front-page…

November 5th, 2019 12:10 AM
As the curtain rises on impeachment proceedings, New York Times’ congressional reporters Sheryl Gay Stolberg and Nicholas Fandos introduced readers to the lead Democratic player in a long, flattering profile that portrayed him as more a nerdy Elliot Ness figure than the partisan leaker and liar he proved to be during Russia-gate and the opening moves toward impeachment: “Schiff, a…

ADL, Antifa and Koch: Toxic Anti-Trump League

October 2nd, 2019 3:55 PM
The Anti-Defamation League is a joke. Once a respected civil rights organization dedicated to fighting extremism and hate against Jews, the ADL lies in bed with violent antifa extremists and perpetuates hate against political opponents. The “progressive” group is now a brazenly partisan character assassination outfit headed by Jonathan Greenblatt, a Clinton/Obama operative and former…

August 18th, 2019 6:33 AM
Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib were barred from visiting Israel, and the New York Times was not pleased.

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

NY Times Lays on Hero Schtick for Trump Foe, ‘Spiritual Man’ Cummings

May 10th, 2019 3:58 PM
Reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg buttered up another influential Democrat, House Oversight Committee chairman, Rep. Elijah Cummings. Rep.

Former senator and vice president Joe Biden is officially running for president, and once again went to Anita Hill in its front-page story Friday, “Biden’s ‘Regret’ For Hill’s Pain Fails to Soothe.” Hill is seen by the press as a victim of both Clarence Thomas and the all-white, all-male Senate Judiciary Committee. She made regular appearances in the paper…

Sheryl Gay Stolberg and Nicholas Fandos reported on Thursday’s front page under a…

NY Times Urges Dems to Back Omar, Bashes Trump, NYPost for Reacting

April 16th, 2019 4:01 PM
Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar’s latest disturbing comment, this time describing the 9-11 terror attacks dismissively as “some people did something....”, provided fodder for the New York Times to get offended. Not offended by Omar’s comment, of course, but against Donald Trump and New York Post for tough responses. Maggie Haberman and Sheryl Gay Stolberg tried to artificially…

March 27th, 2019 6:11 PM
