NY Times Man in Europe: 'Selfish' Trump Not Interfering Enough Abroad

March 24th, 2020 10:30 AM
Steven Erlanger is the chief diplomatic correspondent in Europe for The New York Times. He sits in Brussels and channels the view of Eurocrats. So naturally, Donald Trump is stepping away from global leadership because ....he refuses to agree with everything the socialists in Brussels prefer. Erlanger used the coronavirus pandemic to launch another attack on President Trump’s "selfish" leadership…

NYT: U.S. 'Leadership and Credibility' Will 'Collapse' If Trump Wins

February 20th, 2020 5:05 PM
The New York Times news pages are attacking Donald Trump from all angles to deny him a second term: The Europeans don’t like him! On Wednesday, Steven Erlanger, the paper’s chief diplomatic correspondent, fretted about how “Europe Ponders a ‘Deeply Damaging’ Trump Re-election.” Erlanger’s piece has a strong whiff of anti-Trump, pro-European superiority for a “news” story: "Many anticipate a…

NYT Turns on Assange: From 'Gift of Information' to 'Dubious Judgment'

April 12th, 2019 8:04 PM
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested, and the front page of Friday’s New York Times featured Scott Shane and Steven Erlanger’s recap of Assange and the effect of his leaking of classified national security information (and Democratic Party secrets) in “A Divisive Prophet of the Public’s Right to Know.” The paper noticed that the tide of sophisticated opinion, once favorable to the…

NY Times: Criticize ‘Fake News’? You’re Acting Like a Dictator

December 13th, 2017 11:48 AM
President Trump is attacking the media once again, and the New York Times is playing scared, and playing the “dictator” card. The front page of Wednesday’s Times featured Steven Erlanger in Brussels shaming Trump, and suggesting he’s somewhat responsible for foreign dictators acting like foreign dictators, in “Globe’s Autocrats Echo Trump’s ‘Fake News’ Cry.”

Bitter NYT Throws 'Xenophobia,' Violence Threat at Pro-Brexit Voters

June 25th, 2016 9:07 PM
After Britain’s shocking vote to leave the European Union, the country's leftist elites (and the New York Times) shouted bootless cries of “xenophobia” to the rafters. Inside the paper lurked doom-saying, paranoia, and “xenophobia,” among other plagues to be visited upon Britain for its reckless leap from the crushing embrace of the European Union, an unelected, unaccountable bureaucracy staffed…

NYT Suggests UK's Conservative ('Nasty') Party Lacks Generous Spirit

May 9th, 2015 8:10 PM
Conservative Party leader David Cameron led his party to a shocking outright win in Thursday's general election in Britain. But the honeymoon is already over for Cameron, at least on the front page of the New York Times, which featured Steven Erlanger's "news analysis" of the win by the mean and "nasty party": "To Cameron, the Tory Victor, Go the Headaches."

NYT Front-Page Item Frets Over 'Anti-Immigrant Sentiments' in Europe

January 8th, 2015 1:38 AM
At 4:45 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, the New York Times, teasing an item entitled "‘Dangerous Moment’ for Europe, as Fear and Resentment Grow," tweeted that "The Paris terror attack seems certain to accelerate the growth of anti-Islamic sentiment in Europe." Consistent with a long-established nasty habit, the opening sentence of the report by Steven Erlanger and Katrin Bennhold has since been…

NYTimes Reaches Overseas to Target Imaginary Right-Wing Hypocrisy

December 12th, 2014 9:53 AM
While the New York Times allows inflammatory race-baiters like Al Sharpton to get away with spouting about racial justice, and global warming activists like Al Gore can fly around the world with impunity before returning to one of their energy-sucking estates, the paper reliably plays the hypocrisy card against conservative politicians who fail to adhere to moral values.

NYT's Public Editor's Sad Joke: Paper Is Fair with Israel Coverage

November 24th, 2014 8:56 AM
New York Times Public Editor Margaret Sullivan reluctantly waded into the paper's coverage of the Israel-Palestinian conflict in her latest Sunday column, relaying criticism from both sides before throwing up her hands and defending her paper as fair and balanced. But anyone who's read Jerusalem bureau chief Jodi Rudoren's coverage knows that's a sad joke.

The New York Times' Wretched Anti-Israel Bias Comes in All Too Clear

July 11th, 2014 8:48 AM
Three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped on June 12 while hitchhiking home in the West Bank. They were found dead on June 30, murdered by Hamas militants.

Press Reluctant to Call Russia's Crimea Takeover an 'Invasion'; No Suc

March 3rd, 2014 3:51 PM
The Obama administration's most recent abuse of the English language late last week involved its reluctance bordering on refusal to call Russia's military move into Crimea an "invasion." The press, unlike in 1970 when Richard Nixon sent U.S. troops into Cambodia for under three months, is largely following suit. CNN (HT Hot Air) began the Team Obama-driven festivities on Friday by reporting…
