NY Times Chides D.C. Bible Museum, Suggests Critics of Islam as Bad as ISIS

<p>The <em>New York Times</em> jabbed at Christians and conservatives in two articles Saturday related to museum exhibitions. Emily Cochrane nitpicked the new Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C., while an art critic looking at a Paris exhibit on the history of Christians in the Middle East suggested the French populist Marine Le Pen was as bad as the jihadists of ISIS.</p>

NYT Strikes Populist Pose vs. ‘Gimmicky’ GOP Tax Plan, Laments ‘Death Tax’ Label

<p>In Saturday’s <em>New York Times</em>, reporter Patricia Cohen took the most jaundiced view of the GOP tax-cutting plans with some liberal rhetoric about Republican attempts to pare down the estate tax, colloquially known as the death tax: “Only the Most Wealthy, Including Trump, Gain From Estate Tax’s Repeal.” More tough <em>Times </em>headlines: “Some See a Foundation Of Gimmickry in Tax Bill,” and“Party’s Priority: Comfort for Corporations.” The subhead: “Plan Pinches Families, Not Businesses.”</p>

NYT Blames Racism for America’s Appalling Aversion to Taxes, Says GOP Shreds Safety Net

<p>Liberal <em>New York Times</em> economics reporter turned leftist economics columnist Eduardo Porter is appalled that Americans refuse to go along with confiscatory tax rates like the rest of the civilized world, and suggested racism is part of the problem, in Wednesday’s “Considering the True Cost Of Keeping Taxes Lower” on the front of the Business Day section. And reporter Alan Rappeport continued his snotty and quite selective concern about deficit spending, now that Republicans are threatening tax cuts.</p>

NYT Again Callously Uses Hurricane Harvey to Bash Houston’s Reckless Sprawl, Misery, and Hypocrisy

<p>The front of the Sunday <em>New York Times</em> featured a 3,300 word story from Michael Kimmelman, “Houston After Hurricane Harvey: The Essence of America’s Struggle,” suggesting reckless free market building policies in Houston contributed to the massive damaged caused by Hurricane Harvey -- a reckless liberal charge in itself. Kimmelman’s hostility for Houston’s “runaway development” seeped out on Sunday’s front page: "For years, the local authorities turned a blind eye to runaway development."</p>

NY Times Won’t Stop Bashing Brexit for Encouraging Hate Crimes, Islamophobia, Etc…

<p>The <em>New York Times</em> is still finding ways to stay on the snobbish losing side against the popular movement for national sovereignty known as Brexit, by relating any violent crime against an immigrant or Muslim to the U.K’s June 2016 vote to withdraw from the European Union. Reporter David Kirkpatrick made Saturday’s front page by tying Brexit to “Islamophobia” in a sympathetic profile of a mosque in the London suburb of Barking under an overheated headline: “They’re Loathed as Outcasts, but This Is Home.” The subhead is “Losing London – A Backlash Against  Muslims.” Two other recent articles played the Brexit card, blaming the vote for hate crimes and causing political controversy in general.</p>

NYT’s Big Story: Obama’s Photographer Selling Souvenir of Beloved Presidency

<p><em>New York Times</em> Katie Rogers, a political reporter who specializes in anti-journalistic fan notes to prominent Democrats like Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, had former President Barack Obama in her sights in a long piece in Friday’s paper. It's a tribute to a new liberal icon, the former president’s official photographer, Pete Souza, who is selling a coffee-table book of photos of the president: “He Captured Obama’s Presidency. Now He Helps People<strong> </strong>Remember It.” This is news?</p>

New York Times Goes Giddy Over Sight of Obama Reporting for Jury Duty

<p>On top of the big stories? Demonstrating just how much the press misses President Obama, <em>New York Times</em> reporter Mitch Smith reported the big news that “Obama Reports for Jury Duty, to Chicago’s Delight (Spoiler: He Was Not Chosen).” And to the delight of Smith as well, judging by the unjournalistic giddiness that ensued over Obama, the "Harvard-educated constitutional scholar," deigning to mix with the proles.</p>

Entertainment Weekly Hypes (Really) the Romance-Novel ‘Resistance’

<p><em>Entertainment Weekly</em> is making another ill-advised dip into politics in its November 10 issue, hailing the apparent new trend of “woke” romance novels: “Love Trumps All -- Across social media and in their work, artists are reacting to the current political climate. But none are doing it as swiftly -- or forcefully -- as romance-novel writers.” it featured a silly graphic of a set of romance paperbacks topped with a pink “pussy hat.”</p>

NY Times Obsesses Over Fox News, Others for Actually Reporting on Hillary-Russia Ties

<p><em>New York Times</em> political reporter Jeremy Peters on Saturday joined the odd new trend in the mainstream press of attacking Fox News for actually covering political stories besides Donald Trump -- especially those involving Hillary Clinton’s and Russia. Fox and other right-leaning outlets were also mocked for not obsessing as much as the rest of the press on President Trump’s Russia controversies in “As Russia Inquiry Widens, an Alternative Narrative Emerges on the Right.”Another <em>Times</em> article accuses the network of “pushing its own version of reality,” as if that’s not what the <em>Times</em> does every day. It’s apparently easier to write criticism of other media outlets than to actually covering scandals involving Hillary Clinton and Russia.</p>

Post Critic Tries to Shame Country Music Into Boarding Gun-Control Bandwagon

<p><em>Washington Post</em> music writer Emily Yahr was tapping her foot on Thursday...waiting for the country music industry to abandon its entertainment mission and end its shameful silence on gun control, after dozens of country music fans were murdered by shooter Stephen Paddock in Las Vegas: “Country music avoided politics this year. Then Las Vegas happened. Will anything change?”</p>

NY Times Hides DNC Scandal in Hagiographic Story on Hillary Winning Democratic Award

<p>A new book by former Democratic National Committee chairman Donna Brazile, excerpted by <em>Politico</em>, alleges the Clinton campaign took over the DNC and rigged the nomination process in favor of Hillary and dooming the insurgent campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders. Yet the <em>New York Times</em> buried the story in Friday’s edition, tucking it into a few paragraphs near the end of a hagiographic profile by reporter Katie Rogers of Hillary Clinton receiving an award from the Women’s National Democratic Club. The unrevealing headline: “Anger, Tears, Frustration, Then a Standing Ovation.” The runevealing text box: “Hillary Clinton is named Democratic Woman of the Year.”</p>

NY Times Again Downplays Radical Islam Role in NYC Terror Attack: ‘Disturbed Loner’

<p>The terrorist truck attack in Manhattan by an Uzbekistan national, inspired by ISIS propaganda, was the ostensible subject of Max Fisher and Amanda Taub’s “The Interpreter” column in Thursday’s <em>New York Times</em>. But it was more of an exercise in trying to weaken the link between “terrorism” and radical Islam. The authors gain revealed their liberal priorities by fretting over even labeling such attacks by radical Islamists as terrorism: “This Time Was Terror. What About Las Vegas?” And a front-page story downplayed, in typical <em>Times</em> fashion, the Islamic connection, asserting "there is no single reason" someone would commit such an act, blaming "monsters inside" him.</p>

NYT’s Rutenberg Blames Fox, NY Post for Covering Hillary-Russia Ties

<p>According to<em> New York Times</em> media reporter and columnist Jim Rutenberg, only the right side of the media aisle is trying to make news, while the dominant mainstream side (including his newpspaer) is as fair and objective as can be. Rutenberg launched another attack on Rupert Murdoch’s media empire for failing to ignore Russia-related controversies on the Democrat side of the aisle, in his Wednesday column, “Closing Ranks, Murdoch Empire Sows Doubts on Russia Inquiry.” It’s the latest piece suggesting Rutenberg is not a fan of investigative reporting -- at least when it risks hurting Hillary Clinton. He also let CNN, which has gotten many anti-Trump stories wrong, praise itself for working in the public interest.</p>

NYT Columnist Stephens Shows Left’s Embracing Communism, Hits Walter Duranty

<p>Newish <em>New York Times</em> columnist Bret Stephens has disappointed conservatives expecting a non-hostile view of Republicans, but his Saturday column he offered a useful reminder of the left’s traditional embrace of dictatorship, while hopefully embarrassing his Times colleagues by reminding readers of correspondent Walter Duranty’s fake news from the Soviet Union. “Communism Through Rosy Glasses.” The text box: “The left has a way of excusing some horrors and remembering others.”</p>

NY Times Gushes Over Doc of Bill Nye, the Jail-My-Climate-Change-Critics Guy

<p><em>New York Times</em> movie critic Andy Webster made the new documentary <em>Bill Nye: Science Guy</em> a “Critics Pick,” and the online headline sold it hard: “‘Bill Nye: Science Guy,’ a Portrait of a Fighter for Facts.” A photo caption gushed: “Bill Nye has a new mission: challenging climate-change deniers.” With jail time, apparently, though the <em>Times </em>doesn’t get into that.</p>

NYT’s Strange New Respect for Mormon Republicans: When They Attack Trump

<p>Strange New Respect?<em> New York Times</em> religion reporter Laurie Goodstein celebrated the Mormon faith of fierce Trump critic Sen. Jeff Flake in Thursday’s paper. The online headline was the goopiest: “Flake’s Speech Bore Marks of Mormon Faith, Not Just Politics.” The text box was pretty gushy too: “In standing up to President Trump, standing ‘for what you believe in.’” Suddenly, the NYT approves of Mormonism! That’s quite a change from what the paper thought in 2012, when Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney put that religion in the spotlight.</p>

Ana Marie Cox Done ‘Talking’ in NYT Mag: Leaves Loving Liberal Dialogues, GOP Loathing

<p>Sunday marked Ana Marie Cox’s last Talk interview on the back page of the <em>New York Times</em> Sunday Magazine. It was the usual loving treatment of a liberal. But Cox’s self-proclaimed “gentle magic” was woven solely to benefit liberal figures; Republicans were constantly bashed in her interviews with liberal figures, while House Speaker Paul Ryan was an undignified "stooge" and "media welfare queen."</p>

NYT’s Stolberg Hails McCain’s ‘New Voice’ Vs. Trump, But Was ‘Cantankerous’ Vs. Obama

<p><em>New York Times</em> reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg filed a flattering story on Sen. John McCain, “In Twilight of Career, McCain Becomes an Unfettered Voice Against Trumpism.” The text box of Saturday’s story was even more syrupy: “After a cancer diagnosis, an even more vocal defender of national ideals.” So where was this praise from Stolberg when Sen. McCain dared stand in the way of President Obama?</p>

NYT’s Eligon Gushes Over Disruptive Anti-Police Protesters in High-Crime St. Louis

<p><em>New York Times</em> Kansas City-based reporter John Eligon took sides on anti-police protests in St. Louis in Saturday’s investigation, “Protests Disrupt Commerce in St. Louis, and Regional Leaders Take Notice.” Eligon went to a Trump-hating pizzeria chain owner for the local angle. The reporter gushed: "The protesters have largely won the public relations battle against the police -- who have made some embarrassing missteps in their handling of the demonstrations -- and have seized the media narrative." With articles much like this one.</p>

NYT Reporter: Thumbs Up for ‘Trenchant Satire’ ‘To Kill the President’, Excuses Lefty Hate

<p><em>New York Times</em> reporter Dan Bilefsky devoted a long review-interview in Saturday Arts to left-wing British journalist Jonathan Freedland’s novel about the assassinating of a president, “Trump Is Stranger Than Fiction.” He dutifully passed along the suggestion that such assassination porn was inevitable “when the top guy in the White House appears to be recklessly lurching toward global destruction....” Bilefsky, a foreign reporter for the paper, has previously blamed Brexit for hate crimes, but betrays no concern that this novel may provoke in similar fashion, and registers nothing objectionable about the epidemic of imagined presidential assassinations among liberal "artists."</p>

Sneaky: NYT’s Sex Harassment History Hails Anita Hill, Whacks Trump, Ailes…Skips Bill Clinton

<p>“Do We Believe Women? Nation Takes Fresh Look At Sexual Harassment,” was the headline and the question posed by reporter Clyde Haberman in Wednesday’s <em>New York Times</em> . But that promised “look” at harassment in business and politics focused only on one side of the political aisle. The print version included an archive photo of Anita Hill from the 1991 U.S. Senate hearings regarding then-Supreme Court conservative nominee Clarence Thomas. Haberman cynically skipped from Republican-nominated Judge Thomas to the late Fox News Channel chairman Roger Ailes, with President Trump and Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes also mentioned. President Bill Clinton and his scandalous sex history was utterly ignored.</p>

NYT’s Red Century Whitewash Continues: Lovable Soviet Kids Books, Communist Reporter

<p>The two most recent entries in the <em>New York Times</em>' shameful Red Century series, seemingly dedicated to whitewashing the Soviet era on the<sup> </sup>100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, praise Soviet children book propaganda (while mocking U.S tomes) and hailing the participatory journalism of American Communist writer John Reed.</p>

Actual Newsweek Headline: ‘Trump Tells Hate Group Americans ‘Worship God,’ Not Government’

<p><em>Newsweek,</em> whose home page of late devotes every square pixel to anti-Trump-pro-liberal articles, featured a Harriet Sinclair piece Thursday on President Trump’s then-upcoming speech to the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit. Or, as the magazine’s hit-piece of a headline called it, “Donald<strong> </strong>Trump To Speak At Hate Group's Annual Event, A First For A President.” Seriously? (<em>Newsweek</em> ran a similar "hate group" headline after Trump's speech.) <em>Newsweek</em> relied on the Southern Poverty Law Center for its “hate group” designation. Amazing in its absence is any mention of Floyd Lee Corkins, who in August 2012, using SPLC’s “hate map” as a guide, burst into the headquarters of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. with the intention of assassinating the employees of the social conservative Christian organization.</p>

New York Times in Denial on Liberal Bias: We Play It ‘Straight Down the Middle’

<p>White House correspondents Maggie Haberman and Peter Baker were joined in Washington, D.C., by executive editor Dean Baquet in a conversation on covering the Trump administration, moderated by media columnist Jim Rutenberg on October 12.<strong> </strong>About 33 minutes into the talk, the subject turned to liberal bias, and there were the usual evasions and denials. Baker played dumb by suggesting readers were getting the editorials confused with the news (while admitting there were more liberals than conservatives in the newsroom) while Haberman insisted that reporters played things "straight  down the middle."</p>

NY Times Suddenly Mocks Civil Disobedience When It Comes to Gay Marriage Opponent

<p>Did you know that Rowan County, Kentucky clerk Kim Davis went to jail for contempt of court in 2015, for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples? If not, the <em>New York Times</em> will happily remind you of the fact, over and over, in a Friday story on Davis traveling to Romania to support that country’s fight against gay marriage: “Kentucky County Clerk Campaigns Against Same-Sex Marriage in Romania.” The online headline offered up the theme of the piece: “Kim Davis, Once Jailed in America, Campaigns Against Gay Marriage in Romania.” Apparently the <em>New York Times</em> was the only news outlet that seemed to find it necessary to mention David went to jail in the headline, as it also does several times in the story itself, wondering if she's a "run-of-the-mill lawbreaker." Apparently being jailed for civil disobedience is only cool in the name of liberal causes.</p>

Liberal NYT Attacks Rising Conservative Alternative Media as Prejudiced, Cowardly

<p>It was only a matter of time. A <em>New York Times</em> opinion piece attacked conservative opinion media outlets as prejudiced and cowardly (including a rising conservative star) while purportedly criticizing right-wing groupthink in “The Hollow Bravery of Ben Shapiro,” posted Thursday. Contributor Jane Coaston, who has recently penned liberal political essays for the <em>New York Times</em> Sunday magazine, smeared influential conservative writer and speaker Ben Shapiro (who has appeared in threatening environments when delivering talks on liberal college campuses) as cowardly for not challenging his fans' awful right-wing opinions. Yet Shapiro opposed Trump, which hardly ingratiates him to the people Coaston is considering.</p>

NY Times Prominently Celebrates Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez, Back on the Hill

<p><em>New York Times</em>’ reporter Nick Corasiniti celebrated scandal-plagued Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez on the top of the paper’s New York section Saturday: “After a Month in Court, Menendez Relishes a Trip to Washington – Senator Capitalizes On Break in His Trial.” Corasaniti's latest report is notably longer (1300 words) and more prominently placed than the dutiful pieces he's previously filed on Menendez’s corruption trial for his relationship with Florida doctor Salomon Melgen. At least he's now on his toes to actually identify the Democratic senator as a Democrat in his stories, since the controversy when he bizarrely failed to do so in a <em>Times</em> story in early September.</p>

NYT Finds Folksy Voice of ‘Progressivism’ in ‘Deeply Conservative Texas,’ Puts Him on Front of Sports Page

<p>No escape from politics in the NYT: “In Deeply Conservative Texas, a Folksy Voice of Progressivism” by <em>New York Times</em> reporter Juliet Macur made the front page Thursday -- of the Sports section? Yep, the <em>Times</em> has taken ESPN’s lead and allowed liberal politics and cheerleading to infect one of the last nonpoliticized bastions of American life. Macur, a sports reporter, wrote an encomium to Texas liberal sportscaster Dale Hansen.</p>

Radical Race Author, Trump-Hater Ta-Nehisi Coates Fulsomely Lauded in New York Times

<p>Radical black author Ta-Nehisi Coates, who regularly calls President Trump a white supremacist and has displayed a callous attitude toward 9-11 first responders, was rewarded with prominent placement on the front of Saturday’s <em>New York Tim</em>es arts page in a laudatory interview with Books section staff writer Concepcion De Leon: “An Intellectual’s Journey.” The subhead gave no hint of any controversy around Coates: “With a new book on the Obama presidency and its aftermath, Ta-Nehisi Coates learns to accept the fame he never sought.”</p>

NY Times Defends Democratic Religious Test for Trump’s Court of Appeals Nominee

<p>Defending attempts by Democratic senators to issue a religious test to a Trump judicial nominee,<em> New York Times</em> religion reporter Laurie Goodstein filed a hit piece for Friday’s edition on Amy Coney Barrett, President Trump’s nominee to the U.S. Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit: “Links to Religious Group Raise Issues for Nominee.” She wrote: "Legal scholars said that such loyalty oaths could raise legitimate questions about a judicial nominee’s independence and impartiality."</p>

NYT Reporters Demand NFL Fight Injustice of ‘White Conservatives’

<p>The newly inflamed controversy over National Football League players protesting the National Anthem and American flag in the name of social justice landed <em>New York Times’</em> sportswriter Juliet Macur on Tuesday’s front-page: “N.F.L. Players Knelt for Justice, But They Need a Lasting Stand.” Taking sides, Macur pushed for the protest to evolve, as evidenced by the story’s text box: “Shifting focus from Trump’s comments to issues of injustice.” The subhead to colleague Ken Belson's story attacked N.F.L. owners as " a group consisting largely of white, conservative billionaires has done little to address social injustice or head injuries."</p>

NYT’s Fuller’s Bizarre Take on First Amendment at Berkeley: ‘Can Cause Physical Pain’

<p>The <em>New York Times</em>’ Thomas Fuller filed from Berkeley, where the journalist offered some disturbing ambivalence about the whole First Amendment thing, a tone evident in the headline: “Let Right-Wing Speakers Come to Berkeley? Faculty Is Divided.” It’s a pattern at the <em>Times</em>, with recent pieces suggesting free speech was merely a “canard” used by right-wing racists.</p>

NYT Takes Iran’s Side Over Trump’s ‘Angry Ranting’ in U.N. Image Wars

<p><em>New York Times</em> reporter Rick Gladstone’s report from the United Nations made the pitiful claim that President Trump’s “angry ranting” had made Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani look good: “Critics Fear Jabs at Iran May Backfire On President.”<strong> </strong>Gladstone wrote: "President Trump’s bombastic attacks on Iran over the nuclear deal may have created an unanticipated outcome: sympathy for the Iranian government. Disarmament advocates and other critics of Mr. Trump’s approach to Iran say that while his threats to renounce the accord may sit well with conservative allies, they also risk damaging the credibility of the United States."</p>

NYT’s Convenient Concern for Deficits Resurfaces as GOP Talks Tax Cuts

<p>Like the changing of the seasons, the front of Wednesday’s <em>New York Times</em> featured journalists suddenly rediscovering the national deficit, at least when Republicans are threatening to cut tax rates: “G.O.P. Senators Embrace Plan For Tax Cut That Adds to Deficit.” Such sudden concern for deficits tend to occur among journalists during Republican presidencies or whenever Republicans threaten tax cuts. Reporters Alan Rappeport and Thomas Kaplan led off by insinuating Republican hypocrisy: "Senate Republicans, abandoning a key fiscal doctrine...." Yet Sanders' budget-busting "Medicare for All" proposal didn't trigger the Times' delicate deficit sensibiliites.</p>

NYT’s Galanes Commiserates With Hillary, ‘Ugly Betty’ Actress Over ‘Future of Democacy’

<p>The <em>New York Times’</em> resident chatterer Philip Galanes took his usual perch on the front of the paper’s Sunday Styles for his “Table for Three” Q&A, with Hillary Clinton and “Ugly Betty” actress America Ferrara, “Pain and Progress After 2016 -- Hillary Clinton on the election’s emotional toll and a path forward.” Among the many pretentious photo captions from the late lunch at the Lambs Club in Manhattan, which transpired a few days before Clinton’s book was released: “Mrs. Clinton, Ms. Ferrera and Philip Galanes discussed the future of democracy.”</p>

Newsweek Cover Story Looks Back to the ‘90s in Anger to Defend Bill Clinton, Bash the Right

<p>The long essay-cover story of<em> Newsweek</em>’s September 15 issue by journalist David Friend<em> </em>looked intriguing: <em>“</em>Before Trump Was President, Online Sex Videos, Bill Clinton and the Naughty '90s Changed America.” Yet Friend's real targets weren't the Clintons themselves, but the Clintons’ awful right-wing enemies, the embarrassing people who dared accuse him of sexual harassment, and of course, Donald Trump. Anita Hill’s bizarre, unsubstantiated allegations against Clarence Thomas were passed over. Other villains of the piece included Rush Limbaugh and Matt Drudge.</p>

NY Times’ Burns Cites ‘Terrifying Weather’ as Sign of ‘Urgent Threat’ of Climate Change

<p>The damage from Hurricane Irma may have been less than feared, but the <em>New York Times</em> won’t give up using it as a cynical prod to enact costly legislation and regulation in the name of fighting “climate change” while portraying Republicans as stubborn fools for standing in the way and who will hopefully get swamped by a surging floodtide of public opinion (a prediction the media keeps making, in vain). Alexander Burns reported in Friday’s <em>New York Times</em>, “As Severe Storms Shift Climate Debate, G.O.P. Leaders Remain Unbent."</p>
