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.

Bari Weiss’ Brilliant Farewell to the New York Times Doesn’t Go Far Enough

Why would Weiss sign on with such a publication as an editor/columnist? I mean, she knew, right? Well, I did. It was the 80's and I only wrote a few columns for the book review, but, boy, was my mother proud. And that’s the problem. The paper, because of its incredible reputation and influence, will not go away. The Mainstream Media still looks to the Times no matter how wrong or biased it is. It is Pravda without having to have Stalin tell everyone to read it and obey. They (the liberal half of the country anyway) do it by themselves. And all the dutiful liberal reporters follow sooth like the Seven Dwarfs.

Bari Weiss exposes how The Times has gone astray

Groupthink now dominates the paper’s coverage from front to back and readers are encouraged to obey, not think. If Sulzberger is looking for someone to blame, he should grab a mirror. His firing of opinion editor James Bennet last month was a green light to the Twitter mob that the publisher would bow before it, no matter how outlandish the demands. Weiss is absolutely right, which is why I have been saying the Times no longer functions as an actual newspaper. Its “mission” is to rewrite the story of America, one that dovetails with the paper’s obsession with race, gender and every new form of identity politics.
