By Dave Andrusko When the New York Times runs a guest pro-life op-ed….when a pro-abortion Times columnist subsequently concedes there is something to the argument….and when in the following days the Times publishes a vigorous pro-and-con on the original op-ed, you might conclude that even in the bastion of pro-abortion journalism, there are shafts of …Continue reading "Provoking a spirited exchange in the pro-death newspaper of record"
By Dave Andrusko The New York Times runs something it calls the “Opinion Today” newsletter which (in its typically modest way) the newspaper describes as a place readers can come to to read “influential, thought-provoking commentary” and op-eds, and the like. I just ran across “Abortion and Big-Tent Feminism,” written by David Leonhardt, who among …Continue reading "Even a NY Times columnist admits abortion is the “taking of human life”"
By Dave Andrusko The editorial in today’s New York Times —“What’s at Stake: Protecting Reproductive Rights Under Donald Trump”– is a very important reminder of what a presidential administration can do short of making nominations to the Supreme Court, to substantial alter the contours of the abortion landscape. The editorial begins by reminding us of …Continue reading "NY Times bemoans what a pro-life administration can do"
By Dave Andrusko You didn’t need to be a media insider to anticipate that the usual suspects would target the New York Times “Public Editor” for being candid enough to admit that the Times’ 2016 campaign coverage was awful. (See here.) Her point was that even many “liberals” were unhappy that the newspaper told them …Continue reading "“Public Editor” pays the price for telling the truth about the New York Times rampant bias"
By Dave Andrusko In a much under-appreciated speech, pro-life President George W. Bush once spoke of the “soft bigotry of low expectations.” Now, to be clear, the New York Times is hardly a child lost in the educational wilderness who pays dearly because others unwittingly cast him there, thinking that’s the “best” he can do. …Continue reading "NY Times Public Editor frankly addresses newspaper’s richly earned “liberal” reputation"
By Clay Waters Liberal journalists may be spending the weekend between conventions gnashing their teeth over the New York Times Public Editor’s promise to analyze why people think the paper has a liberal bias. The Public Editor position was created by the Times in the wake of the Jayson Blair plagiarism and fake-story scandal to …Continue reading "The New NY Times Public Editor Goes There: ‘Why Readers See The Times as Liberal’"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. Margaret Sullivan, recently “Public Editor” (i.e., ombudsman ) for the New York Times, wrote her first column today as the Washington Post’s “Media Columnist.” We talk about her first column elsewhere today. Suffice it to say, Sullivan tells us she will use her space to write “about free speech, digital …Continue reading "Another New York Times hatchet job on Justice Thomas"
By Dave Andrusko I did not see Thursday’s New York Times until later in the day but I did see and read the Washington Post’s account of the oral arguments before the Supreme Court in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, the challenge to Texas’s pro-life law, HB 2, first thing. I almost choked on my …Continue reading "How can it be? Washington Post and the NY Times both have front-page photos of pro-lifers?"
By Matthew Balan Radical feminists turned against the liberal New York Times, after the above-the-fold picture on the front page of Thursday’s edition featured three pro-life women. The trio were picketing in front of the Supreme Court on Wednesday. One held a sign from the group New Wave Feminist, which read, “I Am A Prolife …Continue reading "Pro-Abort Activists Freak Out Over Pro-Lifers on NY Times Front Page"
By Tammy Shewfelt In 1871, Augustus St. Clair of the New York Times was given an assignment. He was to go undercover to investigate medical malpractice in the illegal underground abortion business. St. Clair and a lady friend posed as a couple seeking an abortion. What St. Clair uncovered resulted in an editorial series entitled, …Continue reading "The New York Times used an undercover journalist to investigate the abortion industry. Here’s what they found"
By Dave Andrusko For the last post of the day, I’d like to briefly comment on a story that appeared a couple of days ago in the New York Times. Everything you need to know about Gaia Pianigiani’s slant is encapsulated in the headline: “On Paper, Italy Allows Abortions, but Few Doctors Will Perform Them.” …Continue reading "Another tiresome New York Times pro-abortion propaganda piece"
By Wesley J. Smith I have long ago given up on the media fairly — or even accurately — reporting on the assisted suicide movement. Most stories exhibit some or all of the following bias methods: Adopt the advocacy lexicon of the assisted suicide/euthanasia movement. Center the narrative around a man who “just wants …Continue reading "New York Times’ Biased “Aid in Dying” Bunkum"
