NY TIMES REVIVES […]

NYT Public Editor responds to editorial softening claim

On 7 June 2013, New York Times public editor Margaret Sullivan responded to the claim made by some parties that the newspaper changed one of its editorials about the Obama Administration in order to “soften” it. The original version of the editorial has a sentence that says, “The administration has now lost all credibility.”  In an […]

NYT: Obama Administration has lost credibility

The New York Times editorial board has published an editorial that is anything but favorable toward the Obama Administration. Here is how the editorial begins: Within hours of the disclosure that federal authorities routinely collect data on phone calls Americans make, regardless of whether they have any bearing on a counterterrorism investigation, the Obama administration […]

When you lose the New York Times . . .

Once upon a time, you could count on the New York Times to have President Obama’s back no matter what what he or members of his administration did. Not anymore.

NY Times John Harwood Channels Jayson Blair

We’re all used to advocacy journalism from the NY Times and others in the media. But in a  recent example, it appears John Harwood was not happy to simply spin his story as usual, he took it a step further and simply lied about a series of objective facts..  If you read the story it […]

Mother Nature Vs. Climate Models

Mallory Hagen Winnning Miss America Apparently Means The South Will Rise Again

Mallory Hagen was crowned Miss America last week. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, but was born in Tennessee and raised in Alabama. Apparently that ties her to segregation and Jim Crow laws.

Projection: it’s not just a river in Egypt

Like sunrise in the east or a Tony Romo interception in the fourth quarter of a meaningful, late season game you knew it was bound to happen.  Somewhere, somehow some hack columnist from some tree-wasting fishwrap would seize upon the bullied bus monitor to decry incivility in politics.  Republican incivility in politics.  Republicans behaving badly […]

Obama and his willing accomplices in the media are now targeting Cardinal Dolan

No one should deny that The New York Times serves at the behest of Barack Hussein Obama and the leftist ideology they both embrace. And no one should deny that Cardinal Dolan is the face of the opposition to the HHS Mandate being foisted upon Catholics by this administration. So this hit piece from the […]

“Recent prosecutions seem to have everything to do with administrative secrecy and very little to do with national security”

The New York Times, yes, that New York Times, with what some might call a hit piece on Obama.   Seriously: The Obama administration, which promised during its transition to power that it would enhance “whistle-blower laws to protect federal workers,” has been more prone than any administration in history in trying to silence and […]

Why?

This is just wrong.  (Written on the 10th  anniversary of 9/11.) The Years of Shame Is it just me, or are the 9/11 commemorations oddly subdued? Actually, I don’t think it’s me, and it’s not really that odd. What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they […]

The Empire Strikes Back?

Time is the great fool maker and timing is everything.   A bright, shining example is on display at the den of fools known as the New York Times editorial page courtesy of court jester Maureen Dowd.  Her message is in sync with the zeitgeist as defined by the media, her metaphors cutting and poignant, […]
