The New York Times Meets Lord Of The Flies

The very public resignation of New York Times contributing editor and writer Bari Weiss describes an extremely dangerous Maoist atmosphere at the New York Times that could reach critical mass at any institution that has a large staff that has passed through American higher education in the past decade or so.

Bush Aide: NYT Fabricated Trump Story

David Catron, The American Spectator

The New York Times story’s credibility collapsed completely when it attributed this revelation about Bush’s intentions to unnamed sources “familiar with their thinking.” Sure enough, when the Bush people got wind of this tale, they denounced it as just another manifestation of the Gray Lady’s penchant for fiction. The Times hasn’t exactly covered itself in glory lately, and this latest fraud won’t enhance its credibility. Even worse for the New York Times editorial crew, it works in Trump’s favor. His supporters tend to take the position that anyone the Republican Establishment dislikes can’t be all bad.

Trump’s Maximum Pressure Strategy On Iran Working, But…

We should use the protests in Iran to bring down the Islamist regime by ensuring the protesters have the communications technology support they need to circumvent regime attempts to shut down internet and telephone connections. And, more tangible covert support to the brave freedom fighters in the streets would be even better.

Making The Middle East Safe For Iran

Leaked cables reported by The New York Times detail the extent to which Iraq has fallen under Iranian influence since the American invasion in 2003, which transformed Iraq into a gateway for Iranian power, connecting the Islamic Republic’s geography of dominance from the shores of the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean Sea.

Comey and Baquet — united against Trump — have caused a nonstop feeding frenzy

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

You don’t have to be a cynic to see a pattern. It’s a game, with news organizations competing to see which one can get the story that brings down the president, and other media and 2020 candidates piling on in knee-jerk fashion. It’s a rinse-and-repeat exercise. Indeed, the so-called whistleblower complaint recalls the early days of Trump’s presidency when Comey and other Barack Obama holdovers were poisoning the well. Even the word “whistleblower” suggests something untoward happened. But what? The media was in the dark but still the coverage took on tones of hysteria. They didn’t know the source of the complaint, the agency, the substance or any evidence.

Establishment Political News Influence Nosediving

The establishment media's efforts to destroy Trump are having the opposite effect – the media’s credibility is being destroyed, Sleepy Joe Biden is falling fast to Elizabeth Warren and, according to Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll 52 percent of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance.

New York Times Front Page Promotes Fake News And Lies About Guns

Smart policy decisions are rarely made by a population steeped in misinformation and fear, but through fake news and outright lies that is exactly the atmosphere The New York Times and other Far Left media outlets seek to create in order to disarm law abiding Americans.

The Kavanaugh reboot

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

Attacking the legitimacy of Brett Kavanaugh and the Supreme Court is all the left has in their dwindling arsenal. They’re still after President Trump’s tax records. They hate his Supreme Court appointments. They are livid that his economic policies are working when they have always believed the economy was their issue — never mind their failure to achieve any level of success close to what Mr. Trump’s administration has accomplished. If the current Democratic Party were a defendant in court, it could credibly plead insanity. Let’s see how far this insane behavior gets them with voters in the next election.

New York Times Smears Kavanaugh All Over Again

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

There are men of honor on the left. Former Sens. Joe Lieberman and Jay Rockefeller were at odds with conservatives their entire careers. But neither stooped, nor would they ever stoop, to something like this, working with people such as these. These are not just liberal activists. They are leftist agitators who specialize in the art of character assassination. They are radicals for whom truth means nothing. Only results matter. Find your target. Toss a hand grenade. Watch it explode and blow him to pieces. Then claim it was "poorly aimed." This exercise is happening with the press with such regularity it is no longer shocking.

The alternative ‘facts’ of the Times’ Brett Kavanaugh story

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

The whole country knows the Times screwed up big time, but the propaganda sheet formerly known as the Gray Lady is oblivious to what others think. Grown fat and lazy by the hosannas and dollars of people who hate President Trump, it operates inside a bubble of its own. Above all, the incident demonstrates that editor Dean Baquet has abandoned the news business and now behaves as a hard-core leftist with a printing press and website. Defying the late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s warning that “you are entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts,” Baquet apparently believes he is powerful enough to create his own facts.

Brett Kavanaugh, American sex symbol, makes the Gray Lady swoon

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

All of this would be terribly troubling if it were not pure fantasy. But then again, it is terribly troubling that there are all these women in America today so thoroughly stricken by such fantasies involving a man they have never met. Clearly, these are people who are sick and broken. All alone. They are crazed stalkers who hear voices in their heads. It is hard not to feel sorry for them. Even more worrisome than their present obsession with Brett Kavanaugh is what happens to their minds when their spiritual idol, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, hangs up her robe for good. After all, she is 86 years old.

The Plague Of Democrats Smearing Their Way To Power

The plague of smears against Justice Brett Kavanaugh can be understood as the first step in the Left’s post-Ginsberg strategy: Unleash this plague to intimidate Justice Kavanaugh and delegitimize any decision the Supreme Court renders in its aftermath, perhaps even creating a constitutional crisis if Democrat-controlled states refuse to abide by the Court’s decisions on the Second Amendment or abortion.

More Hypocrisy at the New York Times

Daniel Oliver, The Candid American

Global warming has nothing on the pollution of the ubiquitous charges of racism rising to the skies from the left-wing fever swamps. Everything now is racism, especially to the New York Times. How dull. Are some hospital staff members racists? Almost certainly—original sin not yet having been abolished—but the persistence of original sin is not usually the stuff of Times op-eds. The question is, are we going to sacrifice the welfare of children in order to avoid being called racists by the PC-racism police? Instead of asking the tough questions, it’s easier just to bang the racial injustice drum. How dull.

Savor The Media’s Outrage At Being Held To The Same Standard As The Rest of Us

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The NYT’s leaked transcript from a few weeks ago wrecked any chance of anyone falling for their “All The News That’s Fit To Print” baloney again – when the scribblers are hassling their editor because the paper isn’t calling Trump “racist” often enough, you’ve Old Yeller’d objectivity. When you openly plan to replace American history with a garbage narrative designed to undermine the moral foundation of its citizenry’s right to self-government in order to solidify your own caste’s hold on power, you’ve chosen a side in the Octagon, so don’t be shocked if someone figuratively busts a chair over your skull. Oh well.

They Dish It Out But Can't Take It

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Journalists employ a language of scandal and conspiracy to insist those horrible conservatives are going to publicize damaging information about journalists, as if this is entirely different than their own daily output. Everything The Times does is "legitimate." Everything its critics report about it is intended to "undercut the influence" of heroic journalists. These journalists can dish it out against Trump and Trump backers, calling them the worst humans on Earth news cycle after cycle, but they're reduced to whining like children when someone somewhere says, "Boo!" about them.

Real Clear Politics Is What the New York Times Pretended to Be

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Every day Real Clear Politics runs links to the best op-eds on both sides of an argument without editorial comment. Imagine that. Not only that, they link what they deem the most important video appearances by politicians, pundits, etc., again on both sides without comment. Mirabile dictu, they trust us to figure things out for ourselves. Despite also being conservatives themselves, RCP's founders Tom Bevan and John McIntyre were able to pull it off via their linking system and their polling. They deserve big personal kudos and the gratitude of America. Seriously. They are what the Founding Fathers intended.

The New York Times owes Americans a big, fat apology

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

The Times was way out front, along with the Washington Post, in peddling the Russia collusion hoax. And because of its prominence and the power of its news service, the vast bulk of the media followed the Times’ lead. It is the bell cow, and it led the media over the cliff by getting the big story wrong. Twice now, the decision to abandon journalistic standards of fairness has been proven to be sensationally wrong, and added to the growing distrust not only of the Times, but of the media in general. By all means, the Gray Lady should once again say she is sorry.

New York Times' 'Inside' Attack on Trump Unbelievably Cowardly

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

What the Times is publishing here for its own very temporary convenience is inside propaganda from the hoary ultra-establishment wing of the Republican Party.  It is the Deep State in action, though the author claims to represent the "steady state." The man or woman who wrote this article is in actuality an abject coward, the kind of tattletale who is afraid to identify himself or herself for fear of losing a government job.  How pathetic is that?  Why would anyone trust such a person?

Why the NYT Is Obsessed with Alan Dershowitz

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

What is being exposed here for the umpteenth time is that Great American Newspapers like the NYT are not in any way impartial but are but tony propaganda sheets for the current version of political correctness, whatever that may be. Unfortunately, that is no longer Dershowitz, who represents liberalism from another era when it was still somewhat, well, liberal and wholeheartedly supported such seemingly shopworn chestnuts as the First Amendment. Now it is the slave of progressivism, hence Alan must be ostracized. So the NYT went postal and behaved like raving idiots.

James O’Keefe Busts YouTube Deciding What Is ‘Legitimate’ News, and What Isn’t

Joel B. Pollak, Breitbart

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has released a follow-up to its exposé of bias at the New York Times earlier this week. This time, the target is YouTube, the ubiquitous video-sharing platform owned by technology giant Google.
