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

April 5, 2021 by

2

By Clay Waters ~ Are only Republicans fomenting a political culture war with the recently-passed Georgia election legislation? Sunday’s New York Times featured political reporter Nick Corasaniti making that case in “Georgia Governor Attacks All-Star Game Move.” Gov.

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 […]

March 23, 2021 by

1

By Clay Waters ~ Facts, reality, honest reporting, these things apparently don’t’ matter at The New York Times as the laughably-referred to “paper of record” on Saturday made a desperate and vile attempt to blame Donald Trump and Republicans for using the phrase “China virus.” Technology reporter Davey Alba tried to back up the wholly unsubstantiated […]

2

By Clay Waters ~ New York Times’ political reporter Lisa Lerer shared the lead story slot in Saturday’s edition with her take on the Democratic Party’s Andrew Cuomo problem, as allegations made against New York’s Democratic governor deepen in seriousness: “Party Struggles With #MeToo Moment.” Lerer brings up in passing some glaring Democratic inconsistencies, but […]

March 8, 2021 by

1

By Clay Waters ~ The front page of Sunday’s New York Times celebrated the U.S. Senate’s narrow, party-line approval of President Biden’s $1.9 trillion dollar economic relief package, congressional correspondent Carl Hulse’s “news analysis” still faulted the Republican Party for failing to abide by Biden’s “good intentions” in “Win Shows Quest To Cooperate Is All […]

March 6, 2021 by

3

By Clay Waters ~ A half-dozen timeworn titles by beloved children’s author Theodore Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, will no longer be offered by the author’s estate for having purportedly racist content, a sad but predictable play in the age of Woke. But New York Times liberal columnist Charles Blow is one-upping the already overdone outrage, gunning […]

February 26, 2021 by

1

By Clay Waters ~ Reporter Katie Rogers’ “White House Memo” in Tuesday’s New York Times, “Washington Basks in a New Event: A Weekend of Tranquility,” revealed the cozy relationship between the press and the new Democratic administration (Biden’s bagel run and videogames!) and its unhealthy, ongoing obsession with Donald Trump. President Biden did not do anything this weekend. Well, […]

February 15, 2021 by

1

By Clay Waters ~ The New York Times included in its Saturday coverage of the school re-opening debate a story by congressional reporter Carl Hulse: “Republicans Seize on Shuttered Schools as a Political Rallying Cry.” Does “seize” sound familiar? Democrats rarely “seize” or “pounce” on Republicans in headlines, but the paper makes sure to underline […]

January 19, 2021 by

2

By Clay Waters ~ Sunday’s big news story: Kamala Harris’s family? Yes.

NY Times: Biden ‘A Centrist Hoping To Break A Long Cycle Of Partisan Obstruction’

December 28, 2020 by

2

By Clay Waters ~ Among the many electoral gifts the New York Times has bestowed on Joe Biden is the blessing of the president-elect’s presumed ideological “moderation,” or even “centrism.” Sometimes that label, used by the press to reassure on-the-fence voters that Biden would be a safe pick, is also used to pressure Biden into […]

November 23, 2020 by

2

By Clay Waters ~ The New York Times atavistic hostility to Israel shows through in Friday’s piece, “Pompeo Trip to Israel Delivers Parting Gifts, Delighting Hard-Liners.” The text box was breathtakingly cynical: “Placing political land mines ahead of the Biden administration.” Neither reporter David Halbfinger and Isabel Kershner can be accused of being sympathetic to Israel, […]

New York Times Promotes Showtime Slime Of Racist, Dog-Whistling Reagan

November 16, 2020 by

1

By Clay Waters ~ The cultural elite are sliming the legacy of President Ronald Reagan and using him as a cudgel to attack President Trump, reducing the former president to a racist proto-Trump, while suggesting the press and academia have actually been too soft (!) on Reagan’s legacy. New York Times California-based reporter Adam Nagourney […]

November 8, 2020 by

By Clay Waters ~ The 2020 presidential election hasn’t been decided as of this writing, but the New York Times is bitter and panicky about Joe Biden’s surprisingly big loss in Florida and dug up a pathetic excuse: Hispanics were the victims of “disinformation”! In Thursday’s edition, reporters Patricia Mazzei and Nicole Perloth trotted out “Experts Call […]

November 6, 2020 by

2

By Clay Waters ~ The New York Times got ahead of itself in more ways than one over Election 2020.

NY Times: Trump Eroding Democracy While Biden Shows True Manhood

November 4, 2020 by

1

By Clay Waters ~ Jessica Bennett, the New York Times’ first “gender editor,” filed some silly pre-election psychoanalysis for Monday’s edition: “Trump (Tough Guy), Biden (Nice Guy) and the Politics of Manliness.” Bennett opened with the textual equivalent of a campaign video for a former Democratic president the media clearly misses, in the service of pushing […]

Sick Joke: NY Times Hails Communist Angela Davis As Criminal Justice Reformer

October 26, 2020 by

By Clay Waters ~ Every year or so the New York Times offers a nauseatingly hagiographic profile of communist Angela Davis.

Contributor Nelson George opened his long profile with […]
