The New York Times’ long
descent from credibility

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 12/1/2019 4:19:28 AM

The separation of news from opinion was an ingrained part of the culture at The New York Times when I started there in the 1970s. As a young reporter, I knew the rule without understanding its significance. I only knew I was not permitted to express my opinions in my stories. Those were the days when copy was edited by hand and if you veered into editorializing, editors simply crossed out the offending words. You learned of your mistake when you read the paper the next day and realized your opinion was on the cutting-room floor.

"But there is a national crisis of confidence in all media, and the Times no longer offers a solution. It is a major part of the problem." Trump pointed out this cancer on the media. The media, rather than being grateful for an accurate diagnosis and seeking treatment decided to SHOOT THE MESSENGER. The people in "news" media have become primping performers, like their entertainment brethren, and their self regard and egos have increased to fill the void of reporting until there is NO reporting left and the workers are hopelessly corrupted. They have become dictators of their Leftist views and peddlers of propaganda to force those views upon the Country. When they finally collapse, there is going to be major shock as truthful reporting exposes the lies they sold. Historical coverage will tell what happened, name names, and assign blame. Meanwhile, like a kid on a road trip, we look forward to their demise thinking "Are we there yet?".

The New York Times was much more subtle in the way it lied back then. By maintaining a facade of impartiality, of telling "just the facts," important lies were told and believed by most people. Their own Walter Durante portrayed the Soviet Union as a kind of paradise while witnessing the intentional starvation of millions of Ukrainians, and his lie was so convincing that he won a Pulitzer. The New York Times had the credibility to influence majority opinion. In other words they were much better liars back in the day. They just got lazy.

This article points to the opinion writing attached to every whisper of "news" in the NY Times, but in truth such commentary and opinion giving is today found everywhere. Alas, even here. Note today's "Must Reads of the Day" -- each and every one has a snarky comment underneath it. That didn't used to be true. But it is now. We used to get factual lead to a read-worthy article, then readers could comment as they saw fit. Some seriously -- studiously even -- others snarky. Now we are steered to how we are expected to view the article. before wee even read it. I suppose some want that. Need it even! Another does of nastiness, but this time on "our side." I, for one, preferred the old way.

Goodwin's analysis applies equally to WaPo, AP, Reuters and others. In my local paper (Post and Courier, Charleston,SC) there are daily articles in the news section, written by AP "reporters", that contain the writer's opinion, and it isn't even thinly disguised. I have pointed this out on multiple occasions to the editors who, predictably, ignore my input. It's clear that their intent is to advance the leftist narrative, not report fairly and objectively.

Colluding with Democrats to commit crimes is not "freedom of the press" Aiding and abetting the criminal activities of Democrats is not "freedom of the press" Covering up the crimes of Democrats is not "freedom of the press" Framing, slandering and extorting the opponents of criminal Democrats is not "freedom of the press" Participating with Democrats in a coup against the President of the United States is not "freedom of the press" Why is this being allowed at all?

If you live in a rural area or urban middle sized urban cities the papers do not have the staff to report national or international news. Thus, you are fed all that news from The AP which is as far left as the rest of them. The point is there are no reliable real news organizations other than on line and even there they are hard to find. Lots of stuff going on all around the world that is internationally newsworthy and all we hear is impeach, impeach impeach. I personally am sick and tired of it an may just go on a sabbatical from reading any news at all for a while.

If you want to sell papers today sensationalize and lie but if you want to sell them tomorrow write the truth. I doubt the Times policies will last and it will be difficult to get the trust back.

The separation of news from opinion was an ingrained part of the culture at The New York Times that is no more. It has become a propaganda mill for the "woke" Democrats/Progressives. Somebody should drive a stake into its heart and bury it at a busy crossroads.

Major film studio prepares to release hit movie. Major film studio uses its 'sister' company newspaper's outreach firm (Glenn Simpson/Fusion GPS) to facilitate a two-year 'backdate' of Sharon Waxman's online column in the New York Times describing the soon-to-be-released hit movie. Sharon Waxman retires from NYTimes a few months later and creates an online entertainment news site. Hit movie is #1 grossing movie worldwide for over eight years; still #1 movie in dvd sales, worldwide. #3 must surely be a promoter of this behavior--just change a date to protect mysterious interests...?

It's not so much that the Times slants everything to the left but that the reporters and editors have the hubris to think that they are entitled to print their anti-Trump, anti-Christian, anti-USA stuff by some sort of 'divine' right because they are so sure that their opinions are the correct opinions. To them, they are saving the country and they see nothing wrong with printing even lies that they know are lies. For the good of the country, you know, and all us deplorables out here in the sticks. It's amazing, really, how they believe it's their right to do this. Not only does the left slant the news but they are consumed with hate for anyone who disagrees with them. They don't accept differing opinions and will try to shut down anyone who does a la Twitter, FB and the current 'cancel culture. Even a mild opinion like saying you think Donald Trump is doing a good job overall will get you screams of outrage and attempts to ruin your career.

Quite some time ago I submitted a reply to one of the other replies on line here. In that response, I stated my resolution to read NONE. of the copious articles, both on line in venues such as this one, and my two local "newspapers" that are printed there is "news". Previous to this aforementioned boycott of the drivel that passes for "journalism" from the Associated Press, I came to realize that the AP ALWAYS slanted the news, by choice of story, source, and grammar/syntax usage. This, in fact, included the outright dishonesty that went beyond "slanting". I get almost all of my "news" from sites on the internet which have, over the time I have been reading them, gave me accurate, honest events and circumstances that could be vetted for their truth value. After my initial discovery of the uselessness of the New York Times, I came to realize that most of the major newspapers followed the same path as did the Times. If it is true that "there is no free lunch", then it is also true that there is no actual journalism going on at ANY of these rags.

Orwell In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia. Orwell Watched part of a CSpan programme this AM; a panel discussion about past Presidential misinformation. (at Fordam U). Of course it started with Eisenhower, Nixon, W Bush (no Democrats) and quickly devolved into anti - Trump session completely removed from the original topic and I turned it off.The panel's arguments about Trump disrespecting the media (fake news) and established government agencies (swamp) solidified the notion that the predominant media and academia is biased beyond repair. I believe they should just assemble panels and discuss "why I hate Trump" and get passed the pretenses of any intellectual value.

Certain members of the media need to get out more often. They are doing that thing again where they are all saying the exact same thing. The latest fad promoted by members of the commentariat involves alleging that Republicans and Trump supporters are members of a “cult.” Edgy stuff — almost as edgy as it was in 2016. “Increasingly, President Trump’s support seems cultish,” disgraced newsman Dan Rather said on Nov. 17 during an appearance on CNN’s ironically named Reliable Sources. “These cults, cults generally don’t end well. People will say it’s too much to say it’s a cult. I don’t think so.” Later, on Nov. 24, Reliable Sources hosted

If the most recent terrorist attack in London had been an episode in a novel by a social satirist, it would have been dismissed as too crude or absurd to be plausible. Nothing like it could ever take place in reality. Last week, Usman Khan attended a conference at Fishmongers’ Hall, a grand location in Central London, marking the fifth anniversary of a rehabilitative program for prisoners called Learning Together, run by Cambridge University’s Institute of Criminology. Suddenly, Khan, wielding a knife and wearing an imitation suicide-bomber’s vest, went on a rampage, killing a graduate of the Institute who helped run the conference and a volunteer worker at the event,

Joe Biden says he doesn’t need his former boss’s endorsement. In an interview Monday with Politico, the former vice president said having had that post under President Barack Obama is as much help as he needs. “No, because everyone knows I’m close with him,” he said. “I don’t need an Obama endorsement.” He reiterated to Politico his previous claims that he has asked Mr. Obama not to endorse him and said that this stance would not change as the Democratic presidential-primary field narrows and an Obama endorsement could become a game-clincher.

In 2014, America’s progressives got a wake-up call. That year, the midterm elections returned the largest Republican majority to the House of Representatives since 1928. President Barack Obama had, by the middle of his second term, proved an ineffective or unwilling conduit for the radical transformation they’d been promised. The hope and change president, whose rhetoric breathed life into the decaying Marxism in America’s cultural institutions, had been a failure. With a new Republican Congress, any last hopes that Obama would accomplish anything significant were dashed.

There’s a hilarious parody video making the rounds that shows Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) as Wile E. Coyote trying and failing to catch his roadrunner. I'm sure it violates all kinds of intellectual property laws and CNN will mercilessly hunt down its creators. In the video, Schiff concocts scheme after impeachment scheme and they all blow up in his face. That’s what the American people are seeing in the impeachment of President Donald Trump – the Democrats have been trying to remove Trump by any means they could find since before he took office. First it was Russia! Russia! Russia!, now it’s the Ukraine phone call.

We in the administration believe that, at this time, increasing sanctions would dramatically undermine our efforts to reach this shared goal.” That’s what Samantha Power, who held the position of UN ambassador during the Obama administration, said in a 2015 congressional hearing amid debate about whether or not to impose sanctions on the theocratic Iranian regime.

It will surely bring joy to the band’s many haters, but Coldplay will not tour in support of its new album. The reason for the hiatus should give everyone pause: Chris Martin announced that his band will not tour because of global warming. The band reasoned that its musical tours have an intolerably large carbon footprint. As absurd as this might seem, it’s at least refreshing to see someone practice what he professes. After all, if you really believe that the world is about to end because of humanity’s use of energy, then energy-sucking frivolities such as musical tours are rightly the first thing to go. But that’s not all.

Next year, Democrats will control both houses of Virginia’s state Legislature as well as its governorship. On November 18, State Sen. Dick Saslaw introduced a bill that he will sponsor in the 2020 legislative session. That bill will outlaw not only the sale or transfer but also the possession of certain firearms. Saslaw’s bill — SB 16 — provides that “It is unlawful for any person to import, sell, manufacture, purchase, possess or transport an assault firearm” and makes such actions a Class 6 felony. (In Virginia, Class 6 felonies are punishable by imprisonment for between one and five years.)

House Democrats’ impeachment show moves to Jerry Nadler’s Judiciary Committee this week — but don’t expect the proceedings to get any more serious. Sometime before Nadler starts things off at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Intelligence Committee chief Adam Schiff is supposed to send along his final report — which is apparently to be all the evidence the House will consider on the Ukraine matter, despite the near-complete lack of first-hand testimony. Judiciary is simply going to “consider” whether the wrongdoings that Schiff alleges actually constitute “constitutional grounds for impeachment,” with experts brought in to opine on whether President Trump’s actions warrant such a grave step.

The NY Times’ 1619 Project was a sprawling effort earlier this year to convince Americans that slavery was part of the DNA of America. Made up of various pieces by different authors, the 1619 Project seemed to promote an idea that matched current far left sentiment about the importance of identity with an underlying anti-capitalism. The Times is now promoting the Project for inclusion in high school curricula, so it’s likely it will be with us for some time. But where did all of this material come from? One site has done some important work looking into the Times’ Project by simply asking top scholars

The rants coming from the Democrats running for office clearly show that none of them studied civics in school.

Potato processors are rushing to buy supplies and ship them across North America in order to keep French fries on the menu after cold, wet weather damaged crops in key producers in the U.S. and Canada. Cool conditions started to hit growing regions in October, lashing potatoes with frost. Farmers in Alberta and Idaho were able to dig up some damaged crops for storage. But growers in Manitoba, North Dakota and Minnesota received snow and rain, forcing them to abandon some supplies in fields. As the wild weather hurt crops, an increase in fry-processing capacity in Canada has boosted demand. The combination will lead to tight supplies,
