NYT Decries ‘Partisan Divide’ in Healthcare, Never Mentions Democrat Opposition
Here’s another one of those wonderful examples of how the Old Media will use a headline that makes a stark claim about how rotten Republicans are for opposing a Democratic plan while at the same time conveniently ignoring the opposition to the same idea among Democrats. This time it is the “partisan divide” in the healthcare debate. The Times tsks Republicans for solidly lining up | Read More »
NYT Encouraging Old Folks to Give up and Die
Hey, grandma, hurry up and die so that Obamacare can pay for healthcare for more worthy, younger folks. That seems to be the message that The New York Times is selling in order to smooth the waters for the nationalized healthcare system that president Obama is trying to peddle to us all. The Times is running a series titled “Months to Live” in order to | Read More »
NYTimes Sneering at Christianity, Patriotism
It seems that on July fourth, The New York Times saw fit to smirk at both American patriotism and Christianity. A recent Times article about the erection of a giant, though strategically altered, replica of the Statue of Liberty by a showman of a Memphis pastor presented a perfect example of the ridicule and disdain with which the Times views Christianity and American patriotism, both. | Read More »
A New York Times Mention
A quick note of interest: it looks like one of my pieces got excerpted in The New York Times media blog, The Opinionator yesterday. The subject was the Obama administration’s suddenly renewed joy in discussing the president’s Muslim background brought to our attention by Jake Tapper’s ABC posting titled, “The Emergence of President Obama’s Muslim Roots.” The New York Times picked up an excerpt from | Read More »
The Week: Conservatives Should ‘Regret’ New York Times’ $$ Troubles?
Francis Wilkinson, executive editor of The Week news magazine, seems to think that The New York Times is a model of restraint with a centrist editorial policy and that conservatives should be afraid of the day when the Old Gray Lady publishes its last sheet. My guess: if your eyebrow could be raised any higher at this claim, it’d become a toupee. In a somewhat | Read More »
NYTimes Sends American Tourists to One of England’s Most Dangerous Areas for ‘Hip’ Vacation
One would think that The New York Times is purposefully putting American’s in harm’s way with its latest travel section vacation suggestion. If it isn’t doing it on purpose, it certainly is acting almost criminally negligent over its reader’s safety abroad. Back on March 22, the Times suggested that Americans vacation in Deptford, one of England’s most dangerous, crime infested areas. And why would the | Read More »
NYTimes Anti-Gun Agenda: Using Discredited Anti-Gun Statistic on Mexican Gun Purchases in U.S.
Once again The New York Times unleashes a not-so-hidden agenda on its reading public. Here the Times is regurgitating the debunked claim that “90%” of Mexico’s recovered guns used in crime south of the border are from U.S. gun dealers. There is a lot of misdirection in this piece against gun dealers and gun shows, as well. Contradictory claims are made with no proof offered | Read More »
ACORN/NY Times/Obama Campaign Story: Some Details Not as Reported
On April 4 I wrote about the testimony of Heather Heidelbaugh who appeared before Congress to speak about the various shady, if not criminal, actions perpetrated by ACORN (the Association of Community Activists for Reform Now) and its Project Vote offshoot over the last few years — and especially during the late campaign for the White House. There was vote fraud and financial misdealings galore | Read More »
NYTimes: Obama’s Economic Ideas Great… Just Like Hitler’s Were?
For The New York Times economic scene section for March 31, David Leonhardt came across with one of the most amazing admissions about Obama that I’ve ever seen in the Times. Namely that Barack Obama is just like Hitler. Now, many of you may be solemnly shaking your head in agreement, but in so doing you would be missing why the Times was comparing Obama | Read More »
Despite Massive Losses NYT Execs Enjoy Bonuses, Salaries Steady
Apparently the long knives President Obama has out for the blood of CEOs and high paid executives does not apply to the bigwigs at The New York Times. In a March 11 piece ABCnews.com posted a Reuters report that the suits at The Times are still doing quite well despite the downwardly spiraling fortunes of the newspaper they helm. Not only are salaries holding steady, | Read More »
Unsurprisingly, Illegal Deported for Armed Robbery Finds NYT in His Corner
A criminal without legal status deported by US immigration officials is the subject of the latest pity party thrown by The New York Times. The Times seems to find it lamentable that this gang member and armed robber was deported from “his homeland” — that would be the USA — to Cambodia, the land of his birth (one he left when he was a 3-year-old). | Read More »
NYTimes Review of Books Hates Book on War Because no Gays are in it
It’s like dissing a toddler’s beginner science book because the theory of relativity isn’t discussed in exhaustive detail. It’s as foolish as trashing a comic book because the art isn’t of da Vinci quality. It’s as absurd as being mad because a Michael Moore movie isn’t any good or that a candy bar has too much chocolate in it. The review in the New York | Read More »
NYT Complaint: Not Enough Photos Of Mutilated American Soldiers in This War
** Now With Update… A Soldier Speaks ** The New York Times is miffed. They aren’t happy that there has been a dearth of news photos showing dead American soldiers in the war in Iraq. The Times is lamenting that there have been “4,000 U.S. Combat Deaths, and Just a Handful of Images,” so more carnage and death is their druthers. Well, more American dead, | Read More »
So, What Should we Call The Media, Anyway?
Many of us have taken to calling the media establishment the “MSM,” or “Mainstream Media.” But is that a fair and properly descriptive monicker to bestow upon them? A New York Times Blogger pondered that very question on July 21 in a “The Caucus” blog entry — one that was a barely disguised effort to highlight and advertise the opinion of one Markos Moulitsas of | Read More »
