Trying and trying to persuade the New York Times to correct egregious errors

By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. When it comes to covering abortion, errors fall like autumn leaves from the Establishment Media. Or, to switch metaphors, there is a perennial outpouring of error, misleading inferences, and falsehoods. The following is four years old, but it is (alas) an evergreen. The story addressed what you can’t help suspect …

New York Times ‘Fudged’ Book Sales Data to Put #1 Conservative Book on Kavanaugh at #6

By Tim Graham Conservatives have repeatedly protested how The New York Times “Bestseller List” doesn’t live up to its name. We have reported the pattern with David Limbaugh and Dinesh D’Souza.

The NYT laments flurry of pro-life legislation in quasi-incoherent editorial

By Dave Andrusko The media flagship of the Abortion Movement—the New York Times—offered an intriguing editorial Thursday’s newspaper worth thinking about. The headline reads, “What Happens When Lawmakers Run Out of Abortion Restrictions to Pass.” As you would expect, the editorial is wrong on many specifics and quasi-hysterical on others. But it offers some interesting …

After Supreme Court Decisions, NYT Lead Story Questions Value of ‘Weaponized’ Free Speech

By Clay Waters A few Supreme Court cases just failed to go the left’s way, and now they are trashing the First Amendment they once supposedly revered.

New York Times on terrible conditions in abortion “mills”

By Sarah Terzo In an article from 1991, the New York Times wrote about rundown, sleazy “abortion mills” in New York City.

A hysterical pro-abortion rant against Democrats’ pretense they don’t have an abortion “litmus test”

By Dave Andrusko Lindy West is a recent addition (July 1) to the stable of New York Times opinion writers who are so far out to sea they make Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders look like Republicans. Let me confess: I am old enough to remember the days when although I thoroughly disagreed with the …

London hospital, NY Times consistent to the end: the wishes of Charlie’s parents must be overridden

By Dave Andrusko “GetReligion” is an extremely helpful source that describes itself as “a national and global journalism site focusing on how the mainstream press covers religion news in politics, entertainment, business and sports.” It does many, many things well, including spotting glaring oversights and omissions. Typically, the posts at getreligion.org address a religious dimension …

Mea Culpa Attempt at NY Times Over Bogus Pats’ White House Photo Comparison Is Itself Bogus

By Tom Blumer The New York Times is trying to make it look like it’s doing everything it can to back away from the tweet it published Wednesday afternoon showing a bogus comparison of the turnouts from the 2015 and 2017 White House appearances of the players and front office personnel of the Super Bowl …

Now THIS is embarrassing: fake news so fake even the NYTimes can’t deny it

By Dave Andrusko To be honest I was too busy Wednesday being amused by the surprise visit of Rob Gronkowski, the all-pro tight end for the New England Patriots, to the daily White House press briefing to follow the ebb and flow of the latest fake news story from the New York Times. For those …
