Giddy NY Times Prematurely Blessed A Biden Blowout: 400 Electoral Votes Possible!

November 6, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ The New York Times got ahead of itself in more ways than one over Election 2020. On the afternoon of Election Day, the paper was obliged to delete a tweet that arrogantly stated “the role of declaring a winner of the presidential election falls to the news media….” Um, no, that would […]

NY Times: Trump Eroding Democracy While Biden Shows True Manhood

November 4, 2020 by


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. This time it appeared in the paper’s Sunday insert T Magazine, as part of “The Greats” issue, and was blurbed on the front of the paper’s website. Contributor Nelson George opened his long profile with […]

NY Times Shares Liberal Trauma And Horror: Could ‘Serial Killer’ Trump Win Again?

October 24, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ New York Times reporter at large Sarah Lyall has pivoted from mocking the Brexit movement and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson to commiserating with U.S. Democrats in mortifying fashion, as they fear a replay of their 2016 Election Night nightmare: “For Democrats, Horror Never Ends – Replaying 2016 in an endless […]

SHAMEFUL: NY Times Magazine’s Cover Story: Free Speech Threatens Democracy

October 22, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ Emily Bazelon, staff writer for the New York Times Sunday magazine and a professor at Yale Law School, earned the Sunday Magazine’s newest cover story – an 8,000-word jeremiad against free speech. The cover itself was ironic and oh-so-clever: “Free Speech Will Save Our Democracy,” with an online-style warning label overlaid […]

New York Times’ Crazy Sanger: Trump’s Declassifications Make Him An Authoritarian

October 12, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ New York Times national security correspondent David Sanger didn’t mince words in Sunday’s “news analysis”: “Trump Turns Power of State Against Foes, Like an Authoritarian.” (But evidently not “authoritarian” enough to censor Sanger’s crazed criticism?) President Trump’s order to his secretary of state to declassify thousands of Hillary Clinton’s emails, along with […]

Tasteless NY Times Gloats: Trump’s COVID Diagnosis Confirms Dems Criticism

October 4, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ After Friday morning’s news that President Trump and the First Lady had tested positive for COVID-19, The New York Times could hardly suppress an undercurrent of gloating, bolstered by commentary from Democratic activists. Reporter Alexander Burns’ “political memo” made the off-lead story slot on Saturday morning: “Now There’s No Spinning Away […]

Disgusting: NY Times Smears Military Vets, Tea Party As Often Linked To White Supremacy

September 14, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ The lead National section story by Jennifer Steinhauer in Saturday’s New York Times took a magnifying glass to the right-wing militia movement, trying to tie veterans to white supremacy and white supremacy to President Trump: “Veterans Fortify the Ranks of Militias That Align With Trump’s Views.” Meanwhile, the Times describes Antifa […]

Clueless Krugman Takes Morning Stroll, Sees No Destruction In ‘Cheerful’ NYC

September 7, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ Friday’s New York Times showed economist turned Democratic hack Paul Krugman flippantly dismissing the reality of violence and looting and the destruction of portions of Manhattan in “Trump and the Attack of the Invisible Anarchists.” The subhead: “Lurid fantasies about urban hellscapes are all he has left.” On Thursday morning I […]

NYT Lets Fake News CEO Spout About Dangerous ‘Right-Wing Media’ On Facebook

September 6, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ New York Times tech reporter Mike Isaac reported Friday on what sounds like a pretty obvious attempt to limiting Trump’s social media sway: “Facebook To Confront Distortions Before Vote.” But as you’ll see, Isaac’s report had a major unacknowledged problem that wrecked its credibility (emphasis added): Facebook on Thursday moved to […]

HYPOCRITES: The NY Times Cares About Some Violence, Just Not THIS

September 4, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ Coverage from the New York Times of the spate of left-wing rioting and attacks on conservatives remains stuck in denial mode, as unwittingly demonstrated in “Three Conspiracy Theories, Debunked,” by reporters Davey Alba and Ben Decker. While purporting to knock Trump, they actually reveal their paper’s own galling dismissal of left-wing […]

NY Times Can’t Deny Rioting, Now Blames Trump For It in Lead Story

September 1, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ The media can no longer deny the continuous rioting in American cities every night by left-wing thugs. With Joe Biden at last weighing in on Monday afternoon, the story has become impossible to avoid, so the press has shamelessly pivoted, acknowledging the violence and portraying President Trump as the instigator. Monday’s […]

NY Times’ Sexist Takeaway From RNC: Attacks Tiffany, Ivanka, And Guilfoyle

August 31, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ New York Times “writer at large” Sarah Lyall issued a snotty, sexist story for Saturday’s edition, “The Trump Show’s Supporting Female Cast,” arbitrarily bashing the female members of Trump’s family and any other women who have the bad taste to be in the Trump Administration’s orbit. Read these highlights and remember […]

NY Times Goes Hysterical Over Fed Crackdown In Portland: ‘It Feels Like Fascism’

July 20, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ Portland, Oregon has endured criminal rioting, vandalism, and assaults in its downtown area for 50 days. Rioters have assaulted police officers with rocks, bottles, fireworks and eye-damaging lasers, and also spray-painted courthouses and other federal buildings — to scant attention from the liberal press. Saturday’s New York Times lead story noted the crisis — but […]

Pathetic NYT’s Silly Double Standards On Biz Boycotts: Black Beans Versus Coffee Beans

July 17, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ Double standards by The New York Times on product boycotts: The silly anti-Trump boycott of Goya Foods was covered with humorless seriousness, while a 2017 Sean Hannity-inspired boycott of Keurig coffeemakers was mocked as possibly showing “support for child molesters.” The paper sympathized with liberals pitching childish social media fits over […]

Who Will Be FIRED For Ignorant NY Times Opinion Calling For End To Israel?

July 15, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ The New York Times’ disgusting double standards on what constitutes acceptable opinion has been demonstrated once again. An opinion piece from Republican Sen. Tom Cotton (published by the Times online June 3) called for military troops to be deployed to quell the rioting that accompanied the protests over George Floyd’s killing. Cotton’s […]

Unhinged NY Times: Trump’s Facebook Posts ‘Hateful And Violent Speech,’ Harmed ‘Civil Rights’

July 13, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ On the front page of Thursday’s New York Times, technology reporter Mike Isaac pushed a just-completed “civil rights” audit of Facebook: “Facebook Lets Hate Flourish, Report Finds.” No one wants “hate” to flourish online. But that headline actually sneakily translates into a complaint that Facebook is not sufficiently censoring Trump and […]

NY Times HATE: Trump July 4th Speech: ‘Exploits Race…To Stoke Fear’ In Whites

July 6, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ The front page of the New York Times’ local edition Sunday took another bite out of Trump’s Independence Day weekend speeches in “As Virus Rages and Poll Numbers Slip, ‘American Carnage’ Redux.” (That’s a reference to Trump’s inaugural address, which remains notorious among the liberal press) The text box underlined an […]

As Trump Preps Visit, NY Times Suddenly Discovers Mt. Rushmore Is Racist

July 3, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ The New York Times, after ignoring the issue for decades, has abruptly become quite concerned about the dark history behind the historical granite carvings of Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, featuring Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Lincoln. Under the misleadingly benign headline “How Mount Rushmore Became Mount Rushmore,” reporters Bryan […]

New York Times Stands Up For Violent Antifa Rioters Versus Trump

June 5, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ The New York Times’ coverage of the rioting after the killing of George Floyd has been an exercise in running interference for the violent left-wing anarchists of Antifa. On the front of Tuesday’s Times Business section under: “‘All of It Is Toxic’: A Surge In Protest Misinformation,” reporter Davey Alba focused […]

NY Times Front Page Divides: ‘The Coronavirus Is Deadliest Where Democrats Live’

May 28, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ It’s official: The coronavirus is a partisan weapon for the New York Times. The paper deployed it in its co-lead story slot Monday — Memorial Day — “Virus at Its Deadliest in the Strongholds of Democrats.” The online version of that headline was even blunter: “The Coronavirus Is Deadliest Where Democrats […]

NY Times Whines: GOP Science ‘Denialists’ ‘Seized’ On Wacky Green New Deal

May 10, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ New York Times environmental activist reporter Lisa Friedman, whose paper has taken advantage of the coronavirus pandemic to push liberal causes, now regrets Republicans have “seized” on (wholly justified) fears about Democratic environmental policy in her piece entitled, “G.O.P. Aims to Use Pain Of Shutdown to Tarnish Climate Change Policies.” Also, Matthew […]

NYT Devotes Full Page Of Fawning To Ocasio-Cortez, Who Alone Understands Virus Crisis

May 6, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ Tuesday’s New York Times used the coronavirus pandemic to push both the leftist fight against “inequality” and left-wing politician Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She was fawned over in the lead National story slot, a full-page profile: “Lonely Voice in Congress Amplifies Plight of a Stricken District.” Mark Leibovich who recently hailed “eulogist […]

NY Times Sees Conservative ‘Assault On Virus Orders,’ But No Label On ACLU

May 3, 2020 by


By Clay Waters ~ As some states take tentative steps towards resuming normal life, the New York Times on Thursday warned that Attorney General Bill Barr was getting into the debate on the side of fighting state restrictions on commerce and assembly. Reporters Lisa Lerer and Kenneth Vogel penned “Justice Dept. Signals Support for Fight […]
