Original Article

On Thursday, after staffers at The New York Times had rebelled because the Times had published an opinion piece by Senator Tom Cotton in which he suggested using the U.S. military to quell the violence rampaging across the nation, the Times meekly offered an apology, adding it would publish less op-eds in the future.The Times stated: “We’ve examined the piece and the process leading up to its publication. This review made clear that a rushed editorial process led to the publication of an Op-Ed that did not meet our standards. As a result, we’re planning to examine both short term and long term changes, to include expanding our

"...a rushed editorial process led to the publication of an Op-Ed that did not meet our standards." I'm afraid to even ask as to what the NYT "standards" are.

The NYT is becoming less and less relevant in public affairs with each passing day. That they are hopelessly biased is not news to anyone. Antics such as this merely put additional nails in the coffin. Waiting for the day it is sold for $1.

Someone will be fired for failure to kill the op-ed before it went to print. NYT is not news. Not journalism. It deserves to go under and hopefully it will, soon.

A couple of nights ago i read that at one time the nyt was broke and jp morgan lent them money so he could use the nyt to smear AC power because he was invested in edison’s DC power scheme. So they’ve run ads for runaway slaves, opposed AC electricity, were holocaust deniers, and strongly supported stalin. Presumably money, not standards, was at work in each case. The nyt is institutionalized phlegm.

CNN's Saturday town hall with Sesame Street on racism started out well enough with Elmo and Big Bird teaming up with host Erica Hill to instill in young children the virtues of being kind and treating others with dignity and respect. Unfortunately, at the bottom of the hour, the focus shifted to how parents could talk to their children about race and racism in America and became much more politicized. Parents were encouraged to talk to their kids about their privilege and that attempting to be colorblind actually dehumanizes people.Hill brought up the topic of white privilege by introducing a New Hampshire mother who asked, "What are some resources

As of this writing, the search results remain the same. CNET spoke to a Twitter spokeswoman, who said the results come from the platform’s algorithm. If enough people mention an account and include the word “racist,” the account will appear in searches for that word, meaning users can flood particular accounts with negative terms to lock in a certain narrative.

The last five minutes of a basketball game often stretch out in a logarithmic fashion. If one team is far enough behind to be desperate, the players will begin committing intentional fouls simply to force a free throw from the foul line. To be sure, the fouled player on the leading team may end up scoring an easy two points. He may just as easily miss the shot, allowing the fouling team to recover the ball. It's a risk for all concerned.Personally, I view this tactic as a pathetic delay of the inevitable. But there are plenty of people who will disagree, especially those

Minneapolis City Council members are expected to hold an emergency meeting Friday to vote on some of the first changes to the city’s police department following the death of George Floyd, with some of the council’s members vowing to “dismantle” the police department, according to the Star Tribune. The council is working with the state’s Department of Human Rights on a stipulated restraining order that would require some immediate changes to the police department. The order would also set up a timeline for an investigation into whether the police department participated in racial discrimination over the last 10 years.

The Minneapolis mayor is asking for federal help cleaning up and rebuilding his city after rioters caused at least $55 million worth of damage through looting, burning, and defacing public and private property. That cost estimate is likely to increase in the coming days as government officials continue to tally the damage done in the wake of George Floyd’s death, Mayor Jacob Frey said according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz and the state’s congressional delegation are also pushing the Trump administration and Congress for funding. On Tuesday, city officials released an initial estimate of $55 million in damage done to at least 220 buildings.

California’s Legislature now has a pandemic-battered budget plan: Pray, wait and hope for the best. More seriously, Democratic leaders want to postpone the pain carried in Gov. Gavin Newsom’s proposed spending cuts to meet a looming $54.3 billion shortfall. Both the governor and his counterparts in the Legislature know the depth of the problem: a crashing economy, rising jobless and health bills, and no end in sight for the coronavirus threat. Both are leaning on the thin wish that more federal stimulus money will ride to the rescue though that brewing bailout is stalled in Washington. Thank the Republicans in the Senate for refusing

The truth is Michael Baden didn’t do an autopsy.
