Theres not a single journalist who hasnt missed a story, made a mistake or mangled a quote. It comes with the territory, with the consolation that theres a new chance tomorrow.
But a certain editor at The New York Times cannot be consoled. His flub was no ordinary one, for he was insufficiently hostile to the president of the United States.
When Trump is the president, that is not a mere mistake at The New New York Times. Its a sin, potentially a mortal one.
Hes sick. He feels terrible, executive editor Dean Baquet reportedly said.
No doubt the sinner grew even sicker during the staff meeting Baquet convened Monday, which turned into a shaming session. Baquet declared the headline a fking mess in a bid to appease the many reporters and editors extremely upset about how such an awful thing could happen.
The tone seems to have been that this sort of travesty must be nipped in the bud, lest it spread like poison ivy.
Better to make it clear that the agenda mandates Trump hate, from first page to last. No exceptions tolerated.
Consider what the incident says about the state of American journalism, and especially the Times. The rot has turned into a cancer.
The first-edition headline on Tuesday, Aug. 6, Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism, was entirely appropriate for the presidents somber remarks after the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings.
But this was not enough for many left-wingers. A Twitter storm erupted, complete with calls for subscription cancellations, and presto the headline was rewritten.
The replacement, Assailing Hate but not Guns, at least had the virtue of criticizing Trump on one of the papers mission issues.

The NYT had to sacrifice conversion linguistics moving Trump left to outright lynching of Trump to appease the blood thirsty liberal mobs.
New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet
“Its not hard to see those young journalists, most of them white, as slightly older versions of college snowflakes who cannot bear to hear a dissenting word and demand that the world conform to their prejudices. In their identity-driven madness, standards of fairness are relics and another form of white power.”
They are the antifa with a pen. And Baguette is their Goebbels.
With every biased article do the urban ‘heroes’ have any Idea how much flyover country hates them for their ignorant screeds?
I have not taken a family visitor to SF in 10 years, nor will I going forward.
But I have found out how to game the automatic bridge toll scams...all those structures were paid for years ago.
60 years of experience educate me how to circumvent all the Bay Area garbage.
If the MSM were true journalists, and dedicated to searching out truth, and giving both sides of an issue ,(instead of demonizing and censoring the right), we would be a more healthy, and less corrupt, peaceful nation.
How they can help cover up criminality, and then look at themselves in the mirror, I don't know.
Didn't that happen about 80 years ago?
I thought that was some kind of french pastry or bread.
The top editor in those days, the legendary Abe Rosenthal, frequently declared that his goal was to keep the paper straight. He succeeded with an ironclad rule against having reporters opinions in news stories.
Rosenthal was the NYT rat who lied about President Bush 1 being out-of-touch, amazed by a supermarket scanner.
Sorry Mr. Goodwin but Rosenthal was Fake News before Fake News became a meme.

That was Andy Rosenthal.
Abe Rosenthal was the last of the best.
You could go back a quarter century before that to 1964 when Abe was lying about "38 witnesses" to the Kitty Genovese murder.
Not just the times, this approach is wildly adapted in every major "news" organization. If you don't believe it, open your eyes and ears.
How does Walter Durante's ignoring Stalin's massacre of Russian jews fit in with the Times history of reportage ? That was mid-30's, iirc, probably preceding Abe R.
Wasn’t that Ukrainians instead of Jews?
Just shows how successive editors have done so well in upholding the Times’ legacy of lies
yes...i found that it was
