New York Times
After relentless attacks from Donald Trump and the Republican president’s allies, a series of journalistic catastrophes and in the shadow of a possible merger, CNN's chief executive officer, Jeff Zucker, is feeling the heat, according to Vanity Fair columnist Sarah Ellison.
Thursday night The New York Times quietly issued a correction online that admitted one of the media’s major talking points about the Russia investigation wasn’t actually true. The correction was discreetly placed on their website under a 5 day-old article on Trump and Russia by Maggie Haberman called “Trump’s Deflections and Denials on Russia Frustrate Even His Allies.”
After Republican Rep. Steve Scalise was shot by a Bernie Sanders supporter June 14, Democrats in the media and in office came out in droves to repeatedly blame Republicans and President Trump for the “rhetoric” that supposedly caused the attack. That’s right; a left-wing Bernie supporter tried to assassinate a Republican elected official and the media’s reaction was to blame the victim. The New York Times took the same approach but also used the opportunity to smear Sarah Palin in an editorial that reminded readers of the Gabby Giffords shooting in 2011.
While hosting a late-night edition of the CNN Special Report program on Wednesday, June 14, Jake Tapper asked Democratic Representative Eric Smalwell for his reaction to the shooting earlier that day of Republicans engaged in baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, by posing a surprising question: “Do you worry that the Left has gone too far in its rhetoric?”
“I worry that anyone would think that the way to express themselves would be through violence,” the member of the Democrats’ team replied after stating that the day had been “awful, just awful” for him because James Hodgkinson had vented his hatred of President Donald Trump by using a rifle to shoot Majority Whip Steve Scalise and three other people early that morning.
The New York Times is simply a ridiculous publication. And has been for decades. It is hopelessly, blindly, willfully Leftist. And has been for decades. And to advance their Leftism, they have lied and lied again and again. For decades.
Just yesterday, their Editors en toto wrote about the Bernie Sanders supporter who went Republican hunting in Alexandria, Virginia - firing more than fifty rifle shots at GOP Congressmen and staffers on a baseball diamond. Included in that piece was the following:
It was pretty much inevitable. Once you propose the theme of James Comey as a sexual harassment victim as happened in the New York Times, it was almost certain that the next step would be a comparison of him to Anita Hill. And it sure didn't take long. The June 9 Washington Post, followed a day later by the Los Angeles Times, have already gone with that comparison.
The Washington Post article by Christine Emba takes a rather embarrassing stab at Comey's manhood in its title, Mr. Comey, what were you wearing that night?
Imagine if a candidate during a debate makes a statement so outright erroneous that the debate moderator takes time to fact check him with the truth. A very notable moment you might say. Well, not according to a couple of liberal newspapers, including a local one, who again acted as information cloaking devices by not mentioning the debate moderator correction. This was the case in the June 8 debate between Karen Handel and Jon Ossoff, candidates in the Georgia 6th Congressional District special election.
Better not show the latest video of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan. She has already revealed that she is triggered just by the term "fake news" and the video of Netanyahu accusing CNN and the New York Times of reporting fake news about Hamas would probably cause her to wilt from such a macroaggression.
“Biblically responsible” investment opportunities are antithetical to corporate America, according to The New York Times. Times columnist Liz Moyer accused Inspire Investing’s new Christian friendly E.T.F.s (exchange traded funds) of being “squarely at odds with that of nearly all of corporate America” Feb. 28, yet just months earlier the paper praised E.T.F.’s designed around climate change alarmism. Moyer was quick to cite the regulatory filing of the new E.T.F.s, launched Feb. 28, that vaguely stated that the E.T.F.s would avoid investing in companies that have “any degree of participation in activities that do not align with biblical values” including “the LGBT lifestyle.”She claimed this did not align with corporate America because 92 percent of Fortune 500 companies have “nondiscrimination policies” pertaining to sexual orientation and 82 percent have policies pertaining to “gender identity.”
It is getting harder to downplay the recent stock market rally, but The New York Times tried to keep it quiet. Fox Business Network anchor Stuart Varney blasted the Times’s lack of coverage of what he called the “Trump stock market rally.” Varney pointed out on Feb. 27, that the Business section of the Times from the day before ignored the market’s historic gains since Trump’s election. His media criticism came just hours before a 12th straight record day for the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
During his press conference on Thursday, President Donald Trump stated: "The press is honestly out of control. The level of dishonesty is out of control." He also criticized the Cable News Network since “the tone is such hatred,” but he likes the "honorable" Fox & Friends morning program. The top Republican official got some support from an unexpected source the same day when Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen, co-founders of the new Axios website and former members of the Politico site's staff, posted an article entitled: “The Media IS the Opposition Party.”
The White House Correspondents' Dinner slated to be held in Washington, D.C., on April 29 will face a “counter-event” hosted by Samantha Bee, the foul-mouthed host of the Full Frontal weekly program on TBS.
Entitled “Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner,” the “alternative gala” was announced on Monday by Bee, who was a correspondent on Jon Stewart's The Daily Show before getting her own program in February.
