    1478 Assassination Solved. The Humanist Did It. By FELICIA R. LEE On April 26, 1478, Lorenzo de' Medici (who escaped) and his brother Giuliano (who died) were repeatedly attacked with knives by a gang of men who invaded the Duomo cathedral in Florence during a high Mass. It was part of a plot against the powerful Medici family, de facto rulers in the Florentine republic for hundreds of years. Now a Wesleyan University scholar says he has cracked the 500-year-old case with the help of a recently discovered coded letter. For hundreds of years historians have known the plot was...

    Amy Cooper, a white woman who was publicly shamed and fired by her employer after calling the police on African American birdwatcher Christian Cooper who asked her to leash her dog in Central Park, said her “entire life is being destroyed right now.” After the immense backlash against Amy, Christian is now saying he is uncomfortable with the response, according to the New York Times. “It’s a little bit of a frenzy, and I am uncomfortable with that,” he said.

    During a recent session conducted over Zoom, my therapist told me I was “glowing.” In the middle of a pandemic. I struggled to explain why until she prodded, “No crazy experiences with white people this month?” “Not that I can immediately recall,” I replied. That’s when it became clear: I’m doing better these days because staying home alone and practicing social distancing has meant I’m avoiding many of the racist encounters that used to plague my daily life.

    Hertz, which started with a fleet of a dozen Ford Model T’s a century ago and became one of the world’s largest car rental companies, filed for bankruptcy protection on Friday after falling victim to its mountain of debt. The coronavirus pandemic has devastated Hertz by grounding business travelers and tourists, making it impossible for the company to continue paying its lenders. A sharp drop in used car prices has also decreased the value of its fleet. “They were doing quite well, but when you turn off the revenues and you own all these cars and all of a sudden...
  • African-Americans Are Highly Visible in the Military, but Almost Invisible at the Top

    WASHINGTON — A photograph of President Trump and his top four-star generals and admirals, tweeted in October by Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper, was meant as a thank-you to the commander in chief. But it angered a lot of others, and not just those who erupted on Twitter. “You would have thought it was 1950,” said Lt. Col. Walter J. Smiley Jr., who is African-American and fought in Iraq and Afghanistan before retiring last year after 25 years in the Army. Dana Pittard, a retired major general, also African-American, was equally frustrated. “It’s America’s military,” he said. “Why doesn’t this...

    The New York Times editorial board published a column this weekend that asked readers to consider, "Why Does the U.S. Military Celebrate White Supremacy?" At the crux of their argument, the board, self-described as "a group of opinion journalists whose views are informed by expertise, research, debate and certain longstanding values," says that military bases in the southern states bearing the names of Confederate leaders should be renamed. "It is time to rename bases for American heroes — not racist traitors," the article promises readers as its thesis. To support the argument, the writers compare the history of the Confederacy...
  • Paul Krugman Babbles that Trump Wants Americans to ‘Die for the Dow’

    New York Times economist Paul Krugman continues to unleash liberal bile just to take disgusting shots at President Donald Trump, Republicans and ordinary Americans for wanting to reopen the economy. Krugman penned an absurd May 14 op-ed headlined, “Covid-19 Reality Has a Liberal Bias.” In that article, Krugman encouraged readers to speculate about the potential “blowback — especially, by the way, among senior citizens — if an attempt to restart the economy leads to a new wave of infections.” He used that speculation about senior citizens to question: “[W]hy are Trump and company going down this route?” He then answered...

    President Trump fired his most recent shots at The New York Times on Friday, targeting both the newspaper’s executive editor and its publisher. “I laugh at them all,” the president wrote in one of two Twitter posts critical of the paper. “The @nytimes is a total mess!” Exactly what prompted the president’s messages wasn’t immediately clear but Trump again referred to the newspaper as “the Failing New York Times,” a description he has used often when talking about the paper’s coverage of his presidency.

    In a delicious bit of irony, the New York Times sought to be poignant and powerful , but ended up just making another spectacular error. America’s “paper of record” — now a fully far-left newspaper after a long run of being mostly fair and balanced — ran a front page on Sunday with no photos and no stories. Instead, there was just a list of 1,000 names of those the paper said died of COVID-19. “US deaths near 100,000, an incalculable loss,” said the headline. “They were not simply names on a list. They were us,” said the sub-headline. The...

    As the US approaches the grim milestone of 100,000 coronavirus deaths, the New York Times has filled the entire front page of Sunday’s paper with the death notices of victims from across the country. In a decision the paper said was intended to convey the vastness and variety of the tragedy, the front page is a simple list of names and personal details taken from obituaries around the US. The headline is “US deaths near 100,000, an incalculable loss”, with a sub-heading that reads: “They were not simply names on a list. They were us.”

    Ever since he matured from Marxist revolutionary to conservative heavyweight champ, the American left has felt free to smear Clarence Thomas. Ever since he matured from Marxist revolutionary to conservative heavyweight champ, the American left has felt free to smear Clarence Thomas in ways they’d scream “racism!” at if he were still one of them. It’s a half-century reminder of which political team consistently weaponizes a twisted conception of racism to obtain power at any cost, instead of recognizing racism as a moral evil with objective standards of transgression that apply equally to all.In this reprehensible tradition, The New York...

    “Law & Order: SVU” star Christopher Meloni jokingly compared two children showing support for Donald Trump to “Nazi Youth.” The actor, who has previously used his Twitter to speak out against the Trump administration, commented on a video shared by New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow that shows a woman talking to her two nephews who are wearing shirts that read “United States of Awesome.” The clearly scripted video shows the two children lamenting being stuck inside for so long due to the coronavirus pandemic and asking for some good news. The woman responds by telling them that the...

    As facts about the Obama administration's spying and leaking are spilling out, media have a brief window of opportunity to salvage some credibility. As new details emerge about the Obama administration’s broad spying-and-leaking campaign against the incoming Trump administration, reporters have a choice to make about whether to cover this story honestly, at long last. There is a brief window of time afforded the media to get the story right. They should take advantage of it.Journalist Lee Smith already noted the seriousness of the problem facing legacy media after the implosion of the Russia collusion conspiracy theory they peddled. “Americans...

    How does Watergate differ from Obamagate? Journalists led the charge to uncover the first. But now? Now journalists are leading the coverup of the second. J. Peder Zane has illustrated the media coverup exactly: “This week’s news that at least 39 Obama officials had unmasked Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s private conversations during the last month of their administration seemed a little shocking. Today, major media outlets are telling readers and viewers that the practice is “routine.” A CNN headline told readers, “Trump pushes 'Obamagate' conspiracy based on routine intel activity.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, now a CNN...

    The New York Times said Tuesday that one of its top health and science reporters went "too far" after calling for the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to resign over the agency's handling of the coronavirus outbreak. In an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, journalist Donald G. McNeil Jr. said that the United States' early failures to develop a coronavirus test stemmed directly from what he called incompetence at the top of the CDC. He said that the U.S. "completely blew" the first two months of its response, specifically laying blame on CDC Director Robert...

    Curtis Sittenfeld likes to imagine the sex lives of presidents.(snip) She does it again in “Rodham,” her new novel, to be published on May 19. I won’t soon forget the scene in which Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham distract themselves while driving through Arkansas in a way that redefines “joy ride.” “Please don’t get pulled over,” Hillary cautions him. Did this happen? Who knows? The fascination of the first third of “Rodham” is its weave of history and hypothesis as it chronicles the initial meeting of Bill and Hillary at Yale Law School, their courtship and her migration to Arkansas...
