If progressives get their way, it won’t matter how “f---ing bad” Bruno Mars and Travie McCoy want to be billionaires.They won’t be, and neither will anyone else.
Now that democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and others are publicly declaring “billionaires are bad” and a system that allows billionaires to exist is “wrong,” the far lefties in the news media are daring to broadcast their own disdain for the wealthy too.
New York Times opinion columnist Farhad Manjoo mounted a silly defense for BuzzFeed, which recently cut staff, in “Media Layoffs As Democratic Emergency.” The column’s text box: “Last week’s job cuts suggest a reason for panic.” Panic? He’s worried about the decline and fall of that vital democratic-building journalistic titan -- BuzzFeed? "It’s the site that gave us The Dress and published The Dossier, a company that pushed the rest of the industry to regard the digital world with seriousness and rigor."
Game of Thrones fans know “winter is coming.” What they didn’t know was the most popular show on HBO is also a “parallel” to governments now facing the threat of climate change, according to a New York Times Style Magazine interview with its creator.
Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos is now the world’s wealthiest man, and the liberal media love denouncing him for it.
They’ve also started telling him what to do with his money and power now that he’s begun giving some of it away. Bezos is estimated to be worth $162 billion, and he and his wife announced on Sept. 13, they would give $2 billion to address homelessness and preschool education.
After Roseanne Barr lost her hit show over a tweet, the blurb introducing television writer James Poniewozik’s report was morally convicting: "....when people decide to let racism slide, it costs the rest of us." A shame the Times chose not to apply that maxim to itself. Fast forward to the controversy over the paper’s hiring of Sarah Jeong to write about technology for the paper’s editorial board. Hours after the announcement came revelations from Jeong’s obsessively anti-white and anti-police ravings on Twitter, and a defense of Jeong’s hiring from the paper.
New York Times tech columnist Farhad Manjoo is eager to be the left-wing Internet politics czar. He urged cracking down on wrong-think on Twitter in November 2017, by “look[ing] to the community for determining the rights of people on the platform.” His latest social media policing comes in Thursday’s Business Day, where he spent 1,400 words trying to start an employee uprising at Twitter, and apparently begging the social media platform to “censure” the President.
The New York Times and their allies in the “reality-based press” have serious problems with their own versions of reality. Look no further than Times tech columnist Farhad Manjoo, who typed a column declaring that people would gain much more sanity from consuming their news from the print media and not the Internet. “ I turned off my digital news notifications, unplugged from Twitter and other social networks, and subscribed to home delivery of three print newspapers,” he wrote. But he lied. He did not unplug from Twitter in the slightest
Farhad Manjoo recently wrote for the New York Times calling for Twitter to forget the notion that its site is a free marketplace of ideas. Instead, Twitter commissars should police the site and encourage "positive behaviors" and enforce "reputational guidelines." It sounds a little like the "mainstream media," where the establishment is established and the "anti-social" rebels will see their access limited.
It’s official: There’s no escape from anti-Trump politics – it featured on the front page of every inside section of Thursday’s New York Times. The NYT thought it vitally important to tell its readership how fashion designers and actors feel about Trump, and how a new TV cop show featuring a “results-oriented boor” is a painful reminder of the new president.
Our web guru Steve Edwards passed along a tweet from Moe Lane that said "New York Times confirms: Open Source advocacy is for liberals/progressives only. "
Lane linked to an obnoxious blog post by Farhad Manjoo in The New York Times titled “Why Mozilla’s Chief Had to Resign.” You see, “Mozilla is not a normal company. It is an activist organization.” And activists apparently find it very distasteful to be less than “militantly tolerant,” as Manjoo put it:
