July 22, 2021 by

By Clay Waters ~ The New York Times is suffering a pandemic of partisan vaccination politics. The latest shot came in Wednesday’s paper, with Jonathan Weisman and Sheryl Gay Stolberg reporting “G.O.P.

By Clay Waters ~ A front-page New York Times story Saturday by Reid Epstein managed to pack in 18 hostile ideological labels into an 1,800-word story on a sadly familiar theme at the paper — how far Texas is hurdling to “the right” politically under GOP control — in “Can Texas Turn Further Right? Top […]

July 7, 2021 by

2

By Clay Waters ~ The New York Times off-lead story Monday by national political correspondent Alexander Burns was headlined, “U.S. Surges, But Politics Hold Firm – Partisanship Immune to Signs of Recovery.” But it may as well have been titled, “What Is Wrong With You Trump Voters?” Flummoxed by Biden’s stubbornly so-so approval rating and continuing […]

June 21, 2021 by

2

By Clay Waters ~ The front page of Friday’s New York Times featured the presumably rehabilitated Jonathan Weisman, who spent a long time in the paper’s doghouse for offending radical Democrats on his Twitter feed.

NY Times Memorial Day Editorial: Social Gatherings Unpatriotic (Except Protests?)

June 1, 2021 by

0

3

By Clay Waters ~ In Wednesday’s paper, New York Times reporter Reid Epstein suggested the white residents of Wausau, Wisconsin were against racial equality for the “people of color” within their community, and was rewarded with front-page placement of “County Sought To Be Inclusive.

May 17, 2021 by

1

By Clay Waters ~ “Ultra”-labeling bias reigned in Saturday’s New York Times, in which various political stories slammed “ultraconservative” Republicans in Congress, but coddled radical leftists like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with flattering labels. Reporter Catie Edmondson threw around labels left and (hard) right. She managed the mouthful “ultraconservative” twice in a single story on Rep. Elise […]

By Clay Waters ~ New York Times Seattle bureau chief Mike Baker went to Portland, Oregon and committed one of the few and far-between pieces of actual journalism from the long-standing riot area in that city, where left-wing radicals and anarchists have been granted free reign to pillage and vandalize in the name of anti-fascism.

NY Times Thrilled Corps Break ‘Silence’ On GOP ‘Restricting Voting’

2

By Clay Waters ~ Are only Republicans fomenting a political culture war with the recently-passed Georgia election legislation?

Smear Job: NY Times Joins Biden To Decry GOP’s ‘Un-American’ Limits On Voting

March 28, 2021 by

2

By Clay Waters ~ As President Biden demonstrated at his first press conference, it’s once again cool to call your political opponents “un-American” and, better yet, The New York Times won’t accuse you of questioning your opponent’s patriotism, but will boast of the smear in approving front-page headline. And speaking of headlines, The Times will do anything to […]
