NY Times Pledges ‘Unbiased Political Reporting’ (LIARS! They'll still lick Obama's shoes)
big hollywood ^ | 4/23/2012 | by Ben Shapiro

Posted on 04/25/2012 3:46:46 AM PDT by tobyhill

In an unprecedented move, New York Times public editor Arthur Brisbane took to the pages of his newspaper on Sunday to pledge to the reading public that they would do a better job vetting the president. Yes, you read that right: the New York Times is now channeling Andrew Breitbart. Here’s what he wrote:

The Times needs to offer an aggressive look at the president’s record, policy promises and campaign operation to answer the question: Who is the real Barack Obama?

Brisbane admits that critics “view The Times as constitutionally unable to address the election in an unbiased fashion.” He admits that The Times “basked a bit in the warm glow of Mr. Obama’s election in 2008.” (That phrase, in and of itself, constitutes significant pro-Obama bias, of course – he uses it twice in the course of the article.) But, he says, the bias wasn’t purposeful: “I think [our reporters] see themselves as aggressive journalists who don’t play favorites.”

Finally, he says, “The warm afterglow of Mr. Obama’s election, the collateral effects of liberal-minded feature writers – these can be overcome by hard-nosed, unbiased political reporting now.”

Their toughest question for Obama will be, “Master, should I lick the left cheek, or the right?”

They are in love with Romney but they'll still offer the daily praises to Obama. Yesterday they reported that it was ONLY Obama looking after college students and despite only 50% getting jobs after college it was Republican’s fault.

Well there such an easy veracity test. The NY Times demands full release of Obama’s academic, passport and SS records and demands it daily on page 1 or edtorial until it is done.

Anything less is a just scamming the readers.

“I think [our reporters] see themselves as aggressive journalists who don’t play favorites.”

And Hitler saw himself as a gift to humanity.... so what. It is results not intentions that matter.

“I think [our reporters] see themselves as aggressive journalists who don’t play favorites.”

Of course they do, and that’s a real knee-slapper! They’re blinded by their bias.

Reporters? Ha! I think he meant to say Democrat-talking-point “repeaters”.

I was going to use that one but while the Mods allow a bit of “Title Clarification” they may have put that one in the cross-the-line territory.

“They are in love with Romney....”

The NYT is probably so comfortable with Romney as the GOP nominee, so sure that he won’t stray far from Obama’s agenda if he wins the WH, that they’re willing to rock Obama’s boat a little bit now. No real danger to the progressive agenda.

Oh, I’m sure they would make a big show of it, starting on November 7th if Obama won. Since Romney is going to win, though, it is only a theorhetical exercise.

Oh that's ok Toby, the mods LOVE to smack me around, for example I used the tagline "Jimmy Carter is the Skidmark in the panties of American history, 0bama is the yellow stain in front" for years, and then one day recently I was informed that it was 'too offensive' due to the reference to bodily functions, I mean puhLEEEEEZE?!?!?

Anyway, have a good day!

But...but..but... the NYT is not biased. Jon Liebowitz and all the people on MSNBC said so.

This is a move by NY Times to sanitize their future reporting of Obama.

Whenever the Times reports of the “greatness” of the One and are criticized for bias, they will simply say that they promised objectivity and scrutinty and they are delivering with they now say Truth about Obama. It will be the same crap only through a “new” lense.

The Old Gray Whore is near death. The cancer is terminal.

The announcement by the editor that a glimmer or truth would be published is admission that he can see the grave. He is making every effort to rescind Grim Reaper’s the writing on the wall.

There can be no more superficial firings and page size trimmings to reduce costs. The costs are mounting faster than can be accommodated by reduction. There is only one choice. Increase readership and thus advertising.

Obama must be thrown under the bus. Readers will love to see the blood and squished guts. To hell with progressive America!! The Times bordello and presstitutes must be saved.

NY Times Pledges ‘Unbiased Political Reporting’

Bwaa haa haa. That's a good one. You should've saved that for the official Friday silliness thread. Seriously, how could they even say such a thing with a straight face? Oh yeah, years of practice at bald-faced lying.

The NYT wouldn't know unbiased reporting if it came up and bit them in their liberal/socialist/fascist agenda-pushing backsides.

I’m not sure it’s lying. It may be delusion.

Exactly. Once our actual "choice" has been eliminated, they are free to do whatever they want.

"''Watch what we do, not what we say,'' Attorney General John Mitchell advised reporters at the start of the Nixon Administration.

This was reported in the New York Times. And I won't bother to watch the Times, until there's evidence of change. Just do it.
