The New York Times on Trial

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 9/1/2020 5:00:42 AM

History, we like to say, has a way of playing tricks on all of us. Just as Mayor Ted Wheeler of Portland was blaming President Trump for the murder of a right wing protester in Oregon’s leading city, the New York Times was preparing to stand trial in federal court on a libel complaint brought by — wait for it — Sarah Palin. It could prove illuminating for all those who are recklessly accusing their foes of being a party to violence. Mrs. Palin, the former governor of Alaska, sued the Times for an editorial suggesting that advertisement put out by a Palin political committee

I seriously doubt she wins. As the author writes, the bar to victory is set terribly high. But I, nonetheless, drool at the possibility and even the reality of now, just a trial makes me near-delerious with the remote chance at a Palin win.

I believe we can agree that the media needs to be taken down a peg or two. Nick Sandmann did a good job and he is not finished, but there is no reason the the NYT should escape their unacceptable behavior regarding this matter. Gov. Palin was treated much like the President but on a much smaller scale. This has to stop. The media have proven themselves to be untrustworthy. They do not even care to be considered unbiased. Their strategy is to take sides with a vengeance. It is shameful and we should not have to accept this kind of behavior from any news outlet.

This past weekend I cancelled my subscription to the New York Times, which I had read near-daily since I was a child in the 1960s. When asked why by the telephone representative, I said simply, "enough is enough". They never even tried to convince me to stay or offer a lower price. They might as well have called me a "deplorable".

I remember my father reading the Slimes way back in the 60’s and even then he thought it was a biased rag. And it goes further back than that - the Slimes covered up the forced Ukraine famine and covered for the Bolsheviks. #4, what took you so long? Or was it a case of keeping your enemies closer?

We were Times readers for thirty years, and they were the paper of record. Now................. I wouldn't line a bird cage with the hard copy today, especially after the 16129 project ....but what is worse is that they have developed a presence online and still have influence with misinformed or non-informed readers who think they are "the real deal."

The NY times has has always had a liberal bias, but now it has progressed into an ultra extreme propaganda rag for the totalitarians that now run the Democrat party. The Democrats give lip service to democratic ideals, while they all become millionaires while in office at the expense of the people they claim to serve. Like most of the MSM, they are what Lenin called "useful idiots."

The world would be a better place without the Slimes. May it go the way of Air America soonest. For that matter, may the Denver Post experience a similar fate. Every now and then, I'll browse a copy at the library and its content is mostly Slimes articles that were bought. I don't know what the answer is to clean up the msm. Is it even possible. Their workforce largely comes from a broken education system in America.

The Slimes has been committing a slow version of suicide, by design I might add, for at least thirty years, probably longer than that when people still didn't suspect what a lying propaganda tool they had become. They need to find a new Dr. Kavorkian to finish the job.

The answer, #12, is to compete with news outlets that tell truth in presenting facts to its readers, viewers and listeners. The key element is truth - the whole truth, not the literal truth that is ultimately a lie. Cut out the rock'em sock'em commentary which is the obvious bias. And present multiple viewpoints on the op-ed side. The real question today involves economics - how do you profitably sell what many expect for free? Real newsgathering is not cheap.

Food Lion won against ABC and by all rights should own the entire network. But ABC appealed and appealed and with the abundance of liberal judges in our justice system eventually got every dime overturned. Palin will face the same thing. No matter what the jury says, decades of appeals will eventually get the verdict thrown out.

As a young man in the sixties I read the NY Times in Army basic training on weekends in New Jersey. At nineteen years old I knew it was a liberal lying newspaper like I knew Walter Cronkite was a lying commie back then and I wasn't as politically astute as I am today. I remember the reporting with the 'crosshairs' about Palin I can't believe it took this long but I guess justice moves slowly. I hope Palin wins.

The Lyin' Leftist McClatchy newspaper chain is in bankruptcy after years of circling the drain. May Sandman and Palin help the Lyin' Times along the same path. The Times..... and most of these other 'struggling' papers could rescue their businesses.... all they have to do is to tell the TRUTH as best they can. The reason that Rush, Hannity, Mark Levin, and the others are so popular is that they Tell the TRUTH as best they can. Each person has a viewpoint, an opinion, and that influences the way they see things. Seldom are two people going to describe an event the same way. But, strive to tell the truth, and there will be an audience. Continue telling blatant LIES and half-Truths, and people leave. The money dries up. The spiral path to Bankruptcy begins. For the Lyin Slimes, it cannot happen soon enough. Glug. Glug. Glug.

President Trump spoke mildly in defense of Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse on Tuesday, saying that the 17-year-old seemed to be defending himself when he shot three people, killing two of them. NPR, fresh off of interviewing In Defense of Looting author Vicky Osterweil, had something stern to say about that, tweeting ‘President Trump declined to condemn the actions of the suspected 17-year-old shooter of three protesters against police brutality in Kenosha — claiming, without evidence, that it appeared the gunman was acting in self-defense.’

New FBI documents from former special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation revealed details of the circumstances surrounding President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey. The documents, released in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit from BuzzFeed News and CNN, include redacted copies of "302" records, which detail interviews conducted by federal investigators. Among them was an interview with an unidentified supervisory special agent who recalled the events of May 9, 2017. The agent recalled that at approximately 4:51 p.m. the White House asked for Comey's email address. Events moved swiftly from that point on.

The dynasty is a dinosaur. Camelot finally went out of business, much like the end of T.S. Eliot’s poem, The Hollow Men. “This is how the world ends/ Not with a bang, but a whimper.” The last of the Kennedys, carrying the name of the patriarch of the clan, Joseph P. Kennedy, went down hard to, of all people, Sen. Ed Markey, who spent his entire lackluster career aping the Kennedys, but now ends their 75-year reign over Massachusetts politics. Markey rolled in the state’s upper-middle-class lily-white suburbs. Kennedy was reduced to carrying the cities, but not by nearly enough, as well as a few working-class towns inhabited by blue-collar

Toddlers and children are not potent vectors for spreading the coronavirus, the latest evidence suggests, but adolescents and young adults are. Yet even as kindergartens everywhere remain closed, college campuses are reopening. But there’s an asterisk. Colleges, in truth, clearly have no intention of being genuinely open once they've cashed students' rent and tuition checks. Countless students have paid full tuition, room, and board. Some did so after being threatened with the loss of their place at their school. Others were promised that they could learn either while socially distanced or live on campus. Unfortunately, students are instead being sent back to an inferior online education session.

Dems can’t afford to kowtow to the hard left Last week, a mob of white protesters swarmed a white woman eating dinner in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC.

Pro-Trump and right-wing media personalities were quick to ­insist this verbal assault was emblematic of the entire Democratic Party and the broader American left.

Bethlehem, Pennsylvania – In 2016, Donald Trump squeaked out a shocking electoral victory in Pennsylvania by flipping three counties that had previously been carried by Barack Obama. And it doesn't look like the enthusiasm for Trump has waned in the four years since his victory in the state. Driving into the southeastern county of Northampton over the weekend, evidence of support for the president was readily apparent: road signs, bumper stickers, and flags peppered the landscape as I pulled into the quiet community. Bethlehem is a quintessential Pennsylvanian town that represents the dichotomies of rural and urban residents as well as academics and blue-collar workers.

According to a new study from the Clarion Project, American colleges and universities inaccurately disclosed foreign funding to the Department of Education. Between 2014 and 2019, they reported a total of $11 billion in foreign funds. But the Clarion Project's data show that the true number is over $14 billion.

The carnage in Joe Biden’s America is the result of Democrat mayors and governors unwilling and unable to stand up to the lawless, rioting mob that outwardly claims it is motivated by the very same fevers and political positions that motivate Mr. Biden himself.

The new mandate, set forth by Contra Costa District Attorney Diane Becton, makes it tougher to prosecute looting cases in the county, which sits just outside San Francisco. Investigators must now consider “was this theft offense substantially motivated by the state of emergency, or simply a theft offense which occurred contemporaneously to the declared state of emergency?” according to the policy reported by local outlet East County Today. In making that determination, they must also consider five other factors, including “was the theft committed for financial gain or personal need?”
