  • NY Times: The Snowflakes Are Right About Limiting Free Speech

    Truth Revolt ^ | 4.25.2017 | Mark Tapson
    The New York Times published an op-ed Monday by New York University comparative literature professor Ulrich Baer, who argued that those young protesters derided as campus "snowflakes" who violently oppose speakers who offend leftist sensibilities are actually getting it right about free speech. Indeed, Baer concludes, "We should thank the student protestors, the activists in Black Lives Matter and other 'overly sensitive' souls for keeping watch over the soul of our republic." No we shouldn't. We must be vigilant against those totalitarian students, activists, and snowflakes in defense of our republic's soul.
  • New York Times scraps 'female genital mutilation' for being 'culturally loaded' term

    04/24/2017 6:45:24 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 73 replies
    A top New York Times editor decided the paper shouldn’t use the term “female genital mutilation” because the phrase is too “culturally loaded” and widens a divide between the Western world and “people who follow the rite.” Health and Science editor Celia Dugger said she came to the conclusion to refer to the act of removing the female genitalia of young girls as “genital cutting” during a trip to Africa in the 1990s. She spoke about her decision in a Times mailbag article in response to a reader’s question. “I never minced words in describing exactly what form of cutting...

    Worried the term “female genital mutilation” might sharpen the divide between those who oppose brutally cutting away a little girl’s genitalia to deprive her of sexual pleasure and those who practice the “rite,” one New York Times editor instead refers to the ritual as “genital cutting.”“There’s a gulf between the Western (and some African) advocates who campaign against the practice and the people who follow the rite, and I felt the language used widened that chasm,” NYT science and health editor Celia Dugger explained Friday. She also said the widely used term (FGM) is “culturally loaded” in the explanation, which came as a result of...
  • The New York Times Keeps Up Fake Tweet Comparing Trump & Obama Patriots Visit Despite Correction

    Donald Trump For President Blog ^ | April 21, 2017 | Pinkbell
    The New York Times has left up a false Tweet repudiated by the Patriots comparing team size between the New England Patriots White House visit under President Trump and former President Obama. On April the 19th, President Trump welcomed the Super Bowl 51 Champion New England Patriots to the White House.  The media watched this event carefully and not because they desired to watch the celebration but because Trump is a polarizing figure that they can't stand, and they were hoping as few players as possible would show up. In earnest, the New York Times went digging for pictures of...

    When you receiving a devastating fact-check by the Twitter account of an NFL football team, it might be time to delete your newspaper. That very thing occurred on Wednesday, when the New York Times tweeted out two photos comparing the number of Patriots coaches and players who attended in 2015, when Obama was president, versus how many attended on Wednesday with President Trump: "Patriots’ turnout for President Obama in 2015 vs. Patriots’ turnout for President Trump today: https://t.co/OxMEOqZonI pic.twitter.com/pLmJWhOw1j" — NYT Sports (@NYTSports) April 19, 2017 Clearly, the tweet makes the Obama White House visit look significantly better attended than...

    Blue Lives Matter ^ | ON APRIL 20, 2017
    The New England Patriots have called out the New York Times for lying to people in multiple tweets about the NFL team meeting with President Trump. On Thursday, New York Times tweeted out two photos. One photo showed the Patriots with President Obama at the White House in 2015. The second photo showed a picture of the Patriots with President Trump in 2017, showing fewer people standing with the President Trump than Obama. The only reason to tweet such a comparison photo would be to ridicule President Trump. However, the New England Patriots official Twitter account responded to the photo...

    Shortened title. Full title: NYT: Hey, Sorry For Not Mentioning That An Imprisoned 'Palestinian Leader' We Published Murdered Five Israelis It wasn't so much of an apology as it was an after-the-fact 'clarification' about why a "Palestinian leader" whose essay about the travails of living in an Israeli prison appeared in the New York Times ended up getting incarcerated in the first place.  That little detail wasn't made clear in the op/ed for some odd reason, and the newspaper didn't initially include that context either.  Turns out that the author was locked up after being convicted for murdering five people and terrorism...

  • Spicer Says Even Hitler Didn't Use Chemical Weapons

    WASHINGTON — White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Tuesday that Adolf Hitler "didn't even sink to using chemical weapons" — a comment at odds with Hitler's use of gas chambers to exterminate Jews during the Holocaust. Spicer was attempting to discuss the horror of the chemical weapons attack last week in Syria, which the Trump administration is blaming on President Bashar Assad. "We didn't use chemical weapons in World War II," said Spicer, adding that "someone as despicable as Hitler... didn't even sink to using chemical weapons."

    The 2017 Pulitzer winners were announced today and among the winners awarded was the New York Times. One of the three articles they were awarded for was their ‘Russia Dark Arts Series‘ which included the ‘Russian Hacking the DNC’ hoax in the ‘international reporting’ category. Yes, you read that correctly. One of the 3 articles that won The New York Times a 2017 Pulitzer prize is titled, ‘The Perfect Weapon: How Russian Cyberpower Invaded the U.S.’ dated December 13,2016.

    On Tuesday, Joe Scarborough took The New York Times to task for downplaying revelations that former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice reportedly requested the unmasking of Trump campaign officials — and he may have a point. In an April 3 piece titled, Trump Tries to Deflect Russia Scrutiny, Citing ‘Crooked Scheme’ by Obama, the paper of record only included the Rice news within the broader story of Trump deriding former president Obama, writing: {..snip..}

    New York Times ^ | March 23, 2017 | David W. Dunlap
    It happens. Something intended by New York Times editors and reporters for one audience gets seen by another. We in the newsroom were reminded this week to be more scrupulous in flagging phrases like “Here are New York Times stories about —” with embedded links, which serve web and mobile readers but make no sense if they appear in the newspaper, as they have. This contemporary problem is not the only way The Times has challenged readers’ comprehension and sanity over the years. Occasionally, a “cq” will creep into Times copy. This standard proofreading mark means that what may look...
  • Wounded Warrior Project Exonerated After Vicious #FakeNews Smears by NY Times and CBS

    The New York Times and CBS News published vicious hit pieces on The Wounded Warrior Project in early 2016. Recently the injured veterans charity was exonerated. But The New York Times and CBS have yet to post corrections to their smear reports. Meanwhile, wounded veterans suffer. Here are a few snippets from Freedom Daily on the controversy. The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) has been helping injured veterans since its inception in 2003, 2 years after the deadly terror attacks that rocked the nation on 9-11. Since its inception, the organization became the #1 veterans charity in the world. This year,...

    It seems as if everyone in the mainstream media world is taking a fresh look at their style guides this year… for some reason. (*cough*) First we saw the Associated Press preparing to twist their pronouns in strange and unusual directions to avoid offending transgender activists. Now, thanks to some sharp work at The Daily Caller, we learn that the New York Times has grown unhappy with the old list of racially insensitive terms and may be adding a few more. A group of New York Times journalists released a list of racial terms they find “bothersome” Sunday. NYT’s Race/Related...

    Of all politicians that have served in office in America since its founding, and subsequently lied, President Trump is the worst of the bunch, according to David Leonhardt of The New York Times. “[T]he current president of the United States lies,” Leonhardt writes. “He lies in ways that no American politician ever has before.” This includes Barack Obama’s “if you like your doctor/plan, you can keep your doctor/plan” lie and George W. Bush’s infamous “weapons of mass destruction” declaration, which the left still deems a lie. Leonhardt excused these two instances with this defense:

    Words matter. Fact: The administration of President Barack Obama surveilled the campaign associates of the PresidentÂ’s political opponent, Donald Trump. Then the classified information gained was leaked to the press - repeatedly. All of which furthered a liberal narrative that Trump colluded with the Russians to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton. How do we know? Because the New York Times says so. This week White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer went in to considerable detail - specifics - on press reports of Obama spying on Trump. Yet time after time after time the media across the board -...

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says it possesses a “limited amount” of 9mm bullets for agents in the field as well as for training purposes, and it is rationing its ammunition based on internal requests until it can award a new contract. [ ] The apparent role poor planning, or another agenda, played in the issue came to light when ICE said it would have run out of 9mm ammo by June 2017 in the absence of a modified contract with its supplier, Vista Outdoor Inc. So, the agency last month approved a $363,307 ceiling increase to contract No. HSCEMS-11-D-00002....

    The New York Times has changed the headline of a story to remove the word “wiretapped” from its reporting on data being used by the federal government to investigate aides to President Donald Trump, from just before he was inaugurated. The stunning move comes as Trump has openly charged he believes his communications were wiretapped by the federal government during that time period, and longtime federal employees as well as Democrat opponents and critics ridiculed the statement. The text of the story, for which the headline was changed from “Wiretapped data used in inquiry of Trump aides” to “Intercepted Russian...

    Now that the media-Democrat complex has been caught in its own web, there is some serious skullduggery underway. It’s revisionist history, Soviet style. You know, the kind where the bad stuff gets “disappeared.” The New York Times is disappearing its claim that Obama investigated Trump. For four months, the mainstream press was very content to have Americans believe — indeed, they encouraged Americans to believe — that a vigorous national-security investigation of the Trump presidential campaign was ongoing. “A counterintelligence investigation,” the New York Times called it. As I contended in a column this weekend, it was essential for...
