The New York Times is as liberal as the day is long…, and then some.
But it’s not just that.
The real offense of The New York Times is that they’re intentionally deceitful, intentionally disingenuous, and intentionally propagandistic.
Those are their real “crimes.”
Being just a “good old liberal” these days is now a position not to be tolerated by the radical left.
If you’re not a self-proclaimed, full-fledged. socialist/communist/fascist, you better stand back and stand down.
Oliver Darcy of CNN Business writes, “Controversial opinion writer Bari Weiss resigns from The New York Times, blasting paper for ‘illiberal environment.’”
First of all, wouldn’t a “controversial” opinion writer be a good thing?
That is, unless they’re only tolerated as long as their opinion matches the opinion dictated by the New York Times.
“New York (CNN) Bari Weiss, a controversial opinion writer for The New York Times, resigned from the newspaper on Monday, blasting the institution on her way out in a scathing letter explaining why she chose to leave her job.”
“In the resignation letter Weiss posted online Tuesday, the self-described ‘politically homeless’ writer criticized The Times for fostering what she called an ‘illiberal environment’ that she said was ‘especially heartbreaking.’”
‘“Twitter is not on the masthead of The New York Times,’ Weiss wrote. ‘But Twitter has become its ultimate editor.’”
The whole process was good for Bari, however, until the process swept over her, and swept by her, and is now proceeding to bite her in her own backside.
“Stories are chosen and told in a way to satisfy the narrowest of audiences, rather than to allow a curious public to read about the world and then draw their own conclusions,’ Weiss added.”
Bite your tongue, you heretical sea hag!
The last thing the radical left needs is people drawing their own conclusions!
“News of Weiss’ departure was first reported by ‘Vice’ and confirmed by The Times. Kathleen Kingsbury, The Times’ acting editorial page editor, thanked Weiss in a statement for her ‘many contributions.’”
Her biggest and best contribution being her latest decision to get out of the way of their Marxist propaganda mission.
‘“I’m personally committed to ensuring that The Times continues to publish voices, experiences and viewpoints from across the political spectrum in the Opinion report,’ Kingsbury said.”
Liar, liar, pants on fire!
“Weiss generated controversy for her criticism of aspects of progressive culture, particularly with regards to free speech.”
We mustn’t have any of that! Free speech, that is!
“Last week, she was one of the dozens of writers who signed an open letter published in Harper’s Magazine that spoke out against so-called cancel culture.”
How dare she!
“Weiss faced criticism in June when the newspaper faced backlash over the publication of Republican Sen. Tom Cotton’s op-ed, which argued for sending in military troops to U.S. cities to quash unrest that had broken out in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd. In a series of tweets, Weiss tweeted that there was a ‘civil war’ that has been ‘raging’ inside The Times between the ‘wokes’ and older ‘liberals.’ The tweets drew public backlash from some of Weiss’ own colleagues.”
“Weiss said in her resignation letter that she was subject to ‘constant bullying’ by her colleagues at The Times who disagreed with her views. She wrote that colleagues have called her a Nazi and racist and that she was ‘demeaned on company-wide Slack channels.’”
“Slack” software is a collaboration hub that can replace email to help you and your team work together seamlessly. It’s designed to support the way people naturally work together, so you can collaborate with people online as efficiently as you do face-to-face. A “Slack” workspace is made up of channels, where team members can communicate and work together.
‘“There, some coworkers insisted I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly “inclusive” one, while others post ax emojis next to my name,’ Weiss wrote. ‘Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action. They never are.’”
Is it just me?
Doesn’t anyone else see the fascist nature of these people?
It can’t be just me, right?
You do see it too, don’t you?
“Eileen Murphy, a spokesperson for The Times, did not respond to the specifics of Weiss’ resignation letter.”
Of course not.
“But Murphy said, ‘We’re committed to fostering an environment of honest, searching and empathetic dialogue between colleagues, one where mutual respect is required of all.’”
Nice statement, Eileen. Too bad it isn’t true.
Brian Flood of Fox News adds, ‘“What this journalist has done is not just to indict, but convict The New York Times of outright censorship,’ Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell told Fox News. ‘If it doesn’t send shockwaves through the world of journalism, it’s because the world of journalism no longer has ethics.”’
“Weiss published the resignation letter she sent to Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger on her personal website, saying, ‘Showing up for work as a centrist at an American newspaper should not require bravery.’”
And you not even a true centrist, Ms. Weiss. You may be a centrist, in a liberal sense, but not a true centrist.
A true “centrist,” these days, is defined as a person who isn’t smart enough to stand up for America, or just too lazy to help destroy her.
“DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News that Weiss’ letter ‘provides yet another window to the mindset of journalistic ideology and advocacy’ at The Times.”
“While some were shocked by Weiss’ scathing letter, Cornell Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson feels anyone paying attention to ‘the Gray Lady’ [The New York Times] should have known the paper has a lefty agenda.”
“The Gray Lady” has a pimp these days…, and she’s a hot mess.
‘“Liberalism at the NY Times is illiberal and intolerant. Water also is wet. Bari Weiss confirms what conservatives already knew, but liberals like Weiss previously refused to see,’ Jacobson told Fox News. ‘The vicious social justice warfare culture has moved from campus to newsrooms, and there is no place for old-fashioned liberals like Weiss.’”
Hmmm. Sucks to be an “old fashioned liberal” these days, I guess.
Just to put The Times’ liberalism into perspective, The New York Times has not endorsed a republican for president since 1956!
That’s not once in the last 64 years!
That’s not once in the last 16 presidential elections!
That last endorsement in 1956 was for the incumbent, then President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
That includes endorsing Walter Mondale over President Ronald Reagan in 1984. An election that Ronald Reagan won with 58.8% of the popular vote, while winning 49 of the 50 states, the only holdout being Mondale’s home state of Minnesota, and the District of Columbia, of course.
