New York Times Trump-Russia Dry-Hole

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

Even Terrorists Celebrate Christmas

from Conservative Review:

Dear New York Times, here’s why Hezbollah is bad

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

New York Times Flip-Flops on Syria

from the Daily Caller:

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

WND Exclusive – Why’s the Right Taking ‘Insider’ Op-Ed Seriously?

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

The Left Corrects Itself?

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.

from the Blaze: 

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

Trump’s War on Women Continues

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

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

Is O’Reilly Looking Out for the Folks or Just Looking Out for Babes

by: the Common Constitutionalist

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

Will Republicans Have the Courage to use the Reid Rule

by: the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version

Remember in 2013, when the New York Times wrote this? “The Senate changed its most infuriating rule and effectively ended the filibuster on executive and judicial appointments. From now on, if any senator tries to filibuster a presidential nominee, that filibuster can be stopped with a simple majority, not the 60-vote requirement of the past.”

They didn’t merely write it. They celebrated the news. “That means a return to the democratic process of giving nominees an up-or-down vote, allowing them to be either confirmed or rejected by a simple majority,” the Times added.

The NYT described the act as one of desperation by then Majority leader “Dingy” Harry Reid. The “nuclear option” as it has been dubbed, was the only way to “return to the democratic process.” Good guy Reid, “was pushed to act by the Republicans’ refusal to allow any appointments to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.”

ThinkProgress was a bit more harsh as they wrote in 2013 that, “The filibuster allows Republicans to sabotage government and then campaign on the fact that government isn’t working. This is a recipe for more sabotage.” read more

Filibuster is Good – No It’s Not – Yes it Is – No It’s Not

from RedState:

New York Times Prints Op-Ed Supporting Filibuster (Unexpectedly!)

The New York Times, facing a Republican Senate and President, today prints a shock op-ed piece arguing that the filibuster is a venerable tool that should not be discarded. (Yes, I’m joking about it being shocking.) The piece is titled Why Republicans Shouldn’t Weaken the Filibuster:

The Senate has historically been the one place in our government where legislative minorities are protected, with rules to check overzealous majorities.

The twin pillars of the body’s uniqueness are unlimited debate and unfettered amendments. The minority can almost always have some influence on legislative outcomes. This has often made the Senate the cradle of compromise. read more

Snoop Dogg’s Trump Song Isn’t Disturbing but a Parade Float Is

by: the Common Constitutionalist

In July, the piece of crap, drug using and women abusing rapper Snoop Dogg posted an anti-Trump video on his Instagram account. The “song,” and I use the word “song” in the loosest of terms, I guess is called F**k Donald Trump.

The lyrics are very catchy and must have taken him…say…30 seconds to write, as every other word is “yeah N**ger, or F**k Donald Trump.

I’m going to go way out on a limb and conclude Mr. Dogg doesn’t care much for Donald Trump.

After forcing myself to watch about 15 seconds of his masterpiece-of-crap, I proceeded to the nearest search engine to look for the appropriate backlash from every major news outlet in the land, decrying the caustic and racist nature of the “song,” and defending the Trumpster.

I thought surely, despite their misgivings with The Donald, all the major news outlets would join in to condemn such a hate-filled song.

Sooprise – Sooprise! Scrolling through two or three full pages in Google search, I found not a single posting by CNN, the Washington or Huffington Post, NYT, Salon – nobody. read more
