August 15th, 2021 7:43 AM

The New York Times never misses a chance to go after Prime Minister Boris Johnson, leader of the Conservative Party in Great Britain. Saturday’s piece by Stephen Castle, “Cronyism and Profiteering Allegations Roil Britain’s Conservative Party,” told a familiar liberal media story of “Tory sleaze.” 

NY Times Scorns UK Racism Report: You Didn't Condemn Bigoted Britain!

April 21st, 2021 8:30 AM

The United Kingdom commissioned a report on race. It offered an optimistic view, saying institutional racism for minorities no longer blocked minority achievement in the UK. But left-wing pressure groups and their journalistic allies were appalled to read that the country they lived in was not hopelessly bigoted. Now the United Nations’ own batch of “experts” have condemned the findings, and…

Three-Year NY Times Smear Against Boris, Brexit Proves an Utter Flop

December 20th, 2019 7:44 AM
The New York Times has invested three years of hostile coverage on Brexit and mockery of the (once) hopeless crusade of Boris Johnson to become British Prime Minister. Once in office, Johnson was vilified for attempting to lead the United Kingdom out of the European Union. The Times has blamed the Brexit push for, among other things, shorter life spans; racist and Islamophobic attacks, even…

NY Times Sees ‘Evil' 'Rasputin' & 'Political Assassin’ Behind Brexit

September 10th, 2019 6:11 AM
The New York Times devoted a full page to a strikingly condemnatory profile of Dominic Cummings, a political consultant who directed the successful Leave campaign in 2016, and is also an “evil” “puppet master,” “Rasputin,” and “political assassin.” It’s of a piece with the paper’s extraordinarily slanted coverage of Brexit and the new…

Cut Spending and Die? NYT Blames Brexit, Austerity for Shortened Lives

August 31st, 2019 6:03 PM
Keep government spending at high levels or die young.

Apocalyptic NY Times Bashes Boris Johnson: ‘End of Britain?’

July 25th, 2019 4:01 PM
There was no honeymoon for Boris Johnson, the new Conservative Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, in the New York Times. The same old hostility greeted him, and his push to make good on the 2016 referendum to leave the European Union, known as Brexit: "After a lifetime of joking and blustering and maneuvering his way into jobs and then sabotaging himself with poor preparation and…

NY Times Warns of 'Talibanization' When Brexit Backers Get Their Way

July 22nd, 2019 6:50 AM
The New York Times can’t stop whining about how the UK Conservative Party determines its membership. It’s an indirect way to bash Brexit, and Conservative front-runner for the Prime Minister slot Boris Johnson, under the guise of concern for democracy, which is why this obscure issue has become a Times obsession. The latest example appeared in the Sunday edition, “1% of Voters…

NYT Bashes Boris, 'Virtually Cultlike Certitude' of Brexit Embrace

July 11th, 2019 2:20 PM
The New York Times does not like British Conservative politician Boris Johnson, and certainly not his Brexit cause, and makes little attempt to hide it, even in its news coverage (and forget about the opinion section). Reporter Stephen Castle’s coverage of the debate between conservatives Johnson and Jeremy Hunt over who would become the Conservative Party’s new leader (and in effect…

NYT Won’t Stop Bashing Brexit for Hate Crimes, Islamophobia, Etc...

November 12th, 2017 12:51 PM
The New York Times is still finding ways to stay on the snobbish losing side against the popular movement for national sovereignty known as Brexit, by relating any violent crime against an immigrant or Muslim to the U.K’s June 2016 vote to withdraw from the European Union. Reporter David Kirkpatrick made Saturday’s front page by tying Brexit to “Islamophobia” in a…

NY Times Doesn't Know 'What Led Salman Abedi to Bomb Manchester Arena'

May 28th, 2017 10:18 PM
In an attempt to build up its already bulging "We'll never really know why they did it" file relating to Islamist radicals who have taken innocent lives, three reporters at The New York Times composed a 1,900-word report Saturday evening (for Sunday's print edition) about Manchester bomber Salman Abedi's family background. The reporters provided very little hard…

NYT's Brexit-Bashing Gets Smug and Juvenile: ‘Hell Is Other Britons’

June 27th, 2016 2:45 PM
The New York Times is still singing the Brexit blues. The Times Sunday Review was full of fretful opinions in the aftermath of the “Leave” vote. Mark Scott, the paper’s European technology correspondent, announced he was becoming an Irish citizen, and former Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair contributed “Brexit’s Stunning Coup.” But for fans of 190-proof lefty…

NYT Irony Alert: Faults Pro-Brexit UK Tabloids for 'Pushing an Agenda'

June 11th, 2016 4:23 PM
Pot, meet kettle: New York Times reporter Stephen Castle unwisely waded into a media bias debate in “’Brexit’ Vote Gives Tabloids Chance to Unleash Anti-European Tendencies.” It also gave the Times a chance to unleash its snooty anti-tabloid tendencies against right-leaning media outlets that support England leaving the European Union, while being blind to irony: "…

NYT: New Muslim Mayor of London Triumph Over Far-Right 'Islamophobia'

May 7th, 2016 10:12 PM
