August 31st, 2020 10:29 PM
The media can no longer deny the continuous rioting in American cities every night by left-wing thugs.

October 11th, 2019 7:19 PM
New York Times political reporter Thomas Kaplan performed impressive damage control on behalf of rising Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday.

NY Times's Big Scoop: 'How to Get a Selfie With Elizabeth Warren'
July 26th, 2019 3:23 PM
Pro-Democratic hackwork in Thursday’s New York Times: A deeply silly “selfie” story (not even involving actual “selfie” photos) from the campaign trail of Democratic presidential candidate Sen.

NYT's Double Standard on Politician Talk: Pelosi Praised, Paul Panned
February 9th, 2018 1:35 PM
A tale of two speeches: On Thursday, the New York Times Sheryl Gay Stolberg celebrated House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s marathon speech, “8 Hours, 7 Minutes and 1 Pelosi Soliloquy.” While not wholly laudatory, Stolberg fawned over Pelosi’s "heart-rending" defense of the so-called Dreamers. Sen. Rand Paul also delivered a delaying tactic of a speech, but Rand…

September 20th, 2017 6:09 PM

June 15th, 2016 11:29 PM
The New York Times despises Donald Trump's use of the issue of Islamic terrorism during his run for president.

Abortion or Bust! Pro-Choice Extremism Doomed 10-Point 'Women's Equali
June 24th, 2013 7:13 PM
A stubborn, doctrinaire insistence by hard-line abortion rights advocates that a bill titled the Women's Equality Act must not pass without language further liberalizing the Empire State's abortion laws doomed the bill to failure in the New York State Assembly, the New York Times's Thomas Kaplan reported today. Even so, the Times did its best to shield the abortion lobby -- groups…

December 22nd, 2012 9:05 AM
On Thursday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo told an Albany radio station some of his ideas for gun control: “Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it.”
