New York Times Executive Editor Outlines Plans to Shift Trump Coverage from Russia to Race
Breitbart ^ | 16 August 2019 | Kristina Wong

The New York Times plans to shift its coverage of President Trump from whether he colluded with Russia to race, the paper’s executive editor Dean Baquet said during a recent staff meeting, according to a transcript of the meeting posted by Slate.com. “And I mean race in terms of not only African Americans and their relationship with Donald Trump, but Latinos and immigration,” he said, according to the transcript of the meeting, which reportedly took place on Monday.

Baquet said the paper now has to “regroup” and shift its resources and emphasis from the Russia story to the race story.

“We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well. Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story. I’d love your help with that,” he said.

“In the coming weeks, we’ll be assigning some new people to politics who can offer different ways of looking at the world. We’ll also ask reporters to write more deeply about the country, race, and other divisions. I really want your help in navigating this story,” he said.

Baquet described in the decision to shift from the Russia story — which he called “Chapter 1 of the story of Donald Trump” — to race and how the paper was caught a “bit a little tiny flat-footed” after former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony.

It's time to point out that most of the top "leaders" in the Democrap party are all white.

Warren,Biden,Sanders,Beto,etc., all WHITE.

They all need to resign, and donate all political contributions to a minority Democrap politician.

Calling a white male a racist will become equivalent to calling a black male the N word.

White Guilt works to our advantage in our battle with press bias... Baquet will destroy the paper of record - and Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr. will NEVER fire him.

A major aspect of this strategy is going to be continued staging of the fabricated “right wing groups clashing with left wing protesters.”

The deep state globalists are doing all they can to make an example out of Donald Trump as to what they will face if another outsider ever chooses to run for POTUS and wins. It’s obvious, their complete removal is the only way to stop the globalist cabal from controlling the US government. It will very likely require another civil war to achieve that goal.

By far the greatest enemies of the white race are self loathing, guilt ridden, virtue signaling, opportunistic, leftist WHITES.

You underestimate the number of useful idiots that are suckered in by their propaganda. There is nothing that scares any run of the mill white more than being called a racist.

Until we learn to embrace the insult, they will have the upper hand.

Shuffle that new deck of “race” cards. Scour the republic for incidents that can be amplified. If you can’t find any, hire Jussie Smollet and Al Sharpton.

so The Slimes is planning on deliberately fanning the flames of racism and division as a mean to “get Trump, regardless of the permanent damage it does to our country ... in fact, permanent damage is probably part of the plan, as it weakens the cohesiveness of our country, making it that much easier for a left-wing fascist to sneak in ...

Sounds more like a strategy session for Pravda or Izvestia than an American newspaper. Clue....newspapers don’t have a “news focus”...only propaganda machines have that....newspapers REPORT THE NEWS as it happens.

In 2000, he {Baquet} joined the Los Angeles Times as managing editor, and in 2005 became the editor for the newspaper.[8] Baquet was fired in 2006 after he publicly opposed plans to cut newsroom jobs.[9]Wikiipedia

Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr. is the person with 'white guilt'...Sulzberger's (the owner of the paper) smart enough to see Baquet's level of bias and journalistic malpractice (and lack of business sense) will destroy his paper. But he also knows Baquet's a 'person of color' and that Baquet's stood up to white bosses before...(see above wiki quote) So the paper will go down in flames before they'll fire him. The death of a major newspaper is a high price to pay for bias and hatred of President Trump - but if they're willing to pay the price - we're willing to cheer it on.
