During the past few days, several news outlets -- including the New York Times and CNN -- have reported that during Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, the Democratic candidate “overruled” a sexual misconduct charge made by one of her senior advisers. Most national media outlets skipped over that Clinton-embarrassing scoop.


If recently retired New York Times publisher, Arthur O. "Pinch" Sulzberger, expected to finally receive some respect now that he has turned the keys of his newspaper kingdom over to his son, A.G. Sulzberger, he would be quite disappointed after reading the January 14 Politico Magazine story. Senior Media Writer Jack Shafer ridicules Sulzberger and how he ran the Times during his quarter century reign there until he retired on January 1. The profile of just how out of his depth the elder Sulzberger was is brought to us as part of advice to Sulzberger the Younger in which Shafer suggests that he Sell the New York Times. Now.


In a search in the browser Google Chrome, 6 of the top 20 conservative sites had “reviewed claims” showcased in the summary. By contrast, none of the top 20 liberal sites had “reviewed claims.” Instead, three of them -- The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The New Yorker -- had “awards” displayed where “reviewed claims” would have been.

 


At least one liberal media outlet has grasped the link between President Donald Trump and economic growth in 2017. According to a shockingly positive Jan. 1 New York Times report, Trump’s ongoing commitment to deregulation was responsible for 2017’s “wave of optimism.”


It’s understandable that executives at the National Broadcasting Company want to cut down or eliminate accusations of sexual harassment after longtime Today anchor Matt Lauer was fired on Wednesday, November 28, but NBC’s new guidelines have employees responding that they may have gone too far in the opposite direction.

According to an article by Emily Smith of the Page Six website, staffers at the network must “report any inappropriate relationships in the workplace.” If not, “they could be fired for covering up for colleagues.”


When a scandal forces liberals to criticize both Hollywood and the Obamas, you know it’s bad. Hollywood and Washington are both freaked out over a New York Times report about mega-producer Harvey Weinstein and allegations of sexual harassment over nearly three decades. Several liberals raised a key point: Wasn’t this the same producer that gave Malia Obama an internship at the Weinstein company?


The elite have their versions of ambulance chasers. In the wake of a national tragedy, the insensitive calls from wealthy celebrities and journalists to join the bandwagon of liberal political activism showcases their complete lack of empathy.

 


Show business is just that: a business. When a business tries to offend and isolate customers, there is a fairly decent chance that it will go out of business.


In an interview with Variety, the cast of Will and Grace, as well as the creators, took on Trump and identity politics, and promised a vast score of political jokes to come in the popular sitcom’s reboot. Actor Eric McCormack stated, “We’re going to be as progressive and offensive as we can be. If we don’t offend somebody with every show, we’re probably getting a little safe.”


Liberals and Democrats in the “mainstream media” spend most of their time criticizing Republican President Donald Trump, but that doesn’t mean they won’t hammer away at each other if they feel they’ve been slighted, even at an event aimed at the political left. That was the case on Thursday when New York Times reporter Sopan Deb tweeted a complaint that almost all of the speakers at Politico's Pro Policy Summit in Washington, D.C., that day contained “a pretty startling lack of minorities.”


The advent of computer and online technology has made it difficult for newspapers to continue producing and distributing copies of their printed editions while remaining afloat financially. As you might expect, large companies have often snapped up troubled publications in an effort to expand their firms’ influence far and wide. One recent example of this situation came on Monday, September 4, when the New York Daily News -- which has been published since 1919 -- was bought by Tronc, a Chicago-based company that produces the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune, which resulted in a show of support from a newspaper that has been a long-time competitor to the flamboyant tabloid: the New York Times.


If you ever wonder how wildly out-of-touch the media is, look no further than The New York Times’ Twitter account. Friday morning, the leading newspaper in the country actually wondered if climate change would be the "greater threat" for the island of Guam than being hit with a nuclear bomb. The New York Times’ World section’s Twitter account proposed the ludicrous question earlier this morning, to much deserved backlash.

 

People who follow the news from the “mainstream media” are constantly being barraged with poll after poll that claim Donald Trump is constantly hitting new “record lows” in his popularity across the country. Besides the possibility that these pollsters were among those who confidently proclaimed that Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton would trounce Republican Donald Trump in last November’s presidential election, people in the press have avoided reporting on at least one place where the GOP leader is more popular than his Democratic predecessor: the Middle East.
