I read an article in the New York Times last week that I found both fascinating and disappointing. Although, I must admit, the disappointing part was wholly expected.
It is entitled, “He Wants to Save Classics From Whiteness. Can the Field Survive?”
“Dan-el Padilla Peralta thinks classicists should knock ancient Greece and Rome off their pedestal — even if that means destroying their discipline.”
After reading a recent article by Daniel Horowitz (and others) I can think of nothing more scandalous, nothing more damaging to American society, war not withstanding – no greater waste of resources and riches, no greater loss of life and liberty – than the 2020 coronavirus scam.
The lies we’ve been fed for months of the seriousness of Covid-19, and the utter incompetence of supposed virus “experts” is both maddening and saddening beyond belief.
And what’s most infuriating is that virtually none of what I’m about to share is revelatory.
The Covid-19 pandemic is a scandal without equal, and after watching, I think you’ll agree that this is the first epidemic that has become about control instead of public safety.
New York Times Executive Editor admits the paper’s myopic coverage of Trump-Russia and how they handle to scramble when it came up empty.
from the Washington Examiner:
New York Times chief outlines coverage shift: From Trump-Russia to Trump racism
Dean Baquet, the executive editor of the New York Times, said recently that, after the Mueller report, the paper has to shift the focus of its coverage from the Trump-Russia affair to the president’s alleged racism.
“We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well,” Baquet said. “Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story.” read more
The New York Times made waves on Christmas after the “paper of record” decided to publish a piece that trumpeted the supposed good deeds of the Iran-backed terrorist group Hezbollah.
In the piece “Christmas in Lebanon: ‘Jesus isn’t only for the Christians,’” Times reporters Vivian Yee and Hwaida Saad paint a sympathetic picture of the U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.
Writing on Christmas in Lebanon, they report: “Even Hezbollah, the Shiite political movement and militia that the United States has branded a terrorist organization, has helped ring in the season.” read more
THE NEW YORK TIMES WAS AGAINST WAR IN SYRIA BEFORE IT WAS FOR IT
What a difference a year can make for The New York Times.
As President Donald Trump announced his decision Wednesday to withdraw the nation’s 2,000 troops from Syria, a bipartisan cadre of opinion-havers attacked him as recklessly abandoning allies in the region and jeopardizing America’s influence over foreign affairs.
One newspaper was particularly harsh: The Times. read more
We all know of the Big Bang Theory, where in an instant the universe exploded into life and is apparently ever-expanding.
Well, with the confluence of the smash hit book by Bob Woodward and the anonymous White House insider memo hitting at virtually the same time, the left and Never-Trumpers are hoping that this is the ever-expanding political Big Bang that will finally bring down Trump.
I say smash hit book because whether Woodward’s book (release date – Sept. 11, 2018) is great or not, rest assured it will be a runaway best-seller. They will make sure of that.
However, in recent years the Big Bang Theory has been called into question. Did it actually happen, and is the universe really expanding? That’s above my pay-grade, as it were. read more
Is this the start of a new trend? Is this the birth of possibly more honest reporting? Or is merely a one-off event that we conservatives can point to and say, “see, we told you sold.”
I’m going to opt for the latter.

New York Times reports on right wing conspiracies – then issues an epic correction
The New York Times was mocked on social media over a correction made Tuesday that revealed a bias many allege the news outlet has against conservatives.
Here’s what they corrected
In article detailing the role of Campbell Brown as the head of news partnerships for Facebook, technology reporter Nellie Bowles inserted an example of the “far-right conspiracy programming” that is still found on the social media behemoth. read more
The left is once again in melt down mode over Trump’s latest supposed war on something they hold dear. This time it is the President’s wanton disregard for ObamaCare’s mandate requiring free contraception and his “administration’s increasingly bizarre war on abortion.”
The New York Times writes in an article entitled, “Why Judges Matter,” that the Trump administration is attempting to block access to abortions for “undocumented teenagers” and employee access to birth control.
As if right on cue, a leftist hack federal district court judge in Philadelphia, Wendy Beetlestone, stepped in and blocked the administration’s attempt at both saving human life and providing for employer’s religious and moral objection to contraception.
Imagine the lengths the left will go through to get these young illegals to this country safely and insist they stay at any cost, only to authorize and encourage the murder of one after they arrive. This is exactly what they are proposing, by offering free and easy abortions to illegals. read more
Like so many others, I tune into Fox news because it is literally the only cable alternative to a constant barrage of leftism. Sure, I tune in to get real news stories without a leftist spin, but more, I watch for the conservative commentary programs.
Now, between the ouster of Roger Ailes and the O’Reilly harassment accusations, I’d say Fox News has a bit of a problem. Certainly it is not insurmountable, but I’m sure it’s a concern for the execs at Fox.
And now that there appears to be blood in the water, the leftist sharks are circling O’Reilly and Fox, preparing for a feeding frenzy. One thing we should all know about the left – when they sense a problem on the right, they attack and don’t let go until their prey is vanquished. They never give up and never surrender (h/t: Galaxy Quest).
And the attacks on O’Reilly have begun. Salon.com posted a piece entitled “The no-ad zone: ‘The O’Reilly Factor’ may be tops on cable TV, but Bill O’Reilly is turning off advertisers.” read more
