  • Now Trigger-Happy University Students

    Academia is hell. In the latest higher-education fad, students want "trigger warnings," according to The New York Times. It appears that some students are so fragile that they want university staff to protect them from big bad ideas. Students around the country say they want "explicit alerts that the material they are about to read or see in a classroom might upset them or, as some students assert, cause symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder in victims of rape or in war veterans." An Oberlin College draft -- now "under revision" -- for trigger warnings suggested faculty "be aware of racism,...

    The New York Times just delivered a mortal blow to the Obama administration and its Middle East policy. Call it fratricide. It was clearly unintentional. Indeed, is far from clear that the paper even realizes what it has done. Last Saturday the Times published an 8,000 word account by David Kirkpatrick detailing the terrorist strike against the US consulate and the CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. In it, Kirkpatrick tore to shreds the foundations of President Barack Obama’s counter-terrorism strategy and his overall policy in the Middle East. Obama first enunciated those foundations in his June...

    Vladimir Putin is currently cashing in on an ill-advised promise made when two presidents thought no one was listening. You may recall President Obama’s whispered assurance, back in March of 2012, to then Russian president, Dmitry Medvedev: “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.” We are now witnessing that promised flexibility. America’s foreign policy is becoming a caricature—international affairs according to Gumby. Russian President Vladimir Putin is a mix of Joseph Stalin and Lavrenty Beria---an experienced strongman and savvy intelligence officer. He is hardly someone to be impressed by “flexibility.” Vladimir is all about power...

    As most of you have read or seen by now, a journalist and NBC/MSNBC media consultant named William “Bill” Arkin has created quite a stir by viciously insulting American soldiers in Iraq. He wrote at his Washington Post blog, “Early Warning: William M. Arkin on National and Homeland Security” column (1/30/07), that “… this NBC (Nightly News) report is just an ugly reminder of the price we pay for a mercenary - oops sorry, volunteer force that thinks it is doing the dirty work” re Iraq. The “report,” according to Arkin, featured “a number of soldiers (who) expressed frustration with...

    They called him Punch, and he earned the sobriquet. A Marine, he came home from serving in the Pacific theater, then in the Korean Conflict, to help run the family business, which in the case of Arthur Ochs Sulzberger was the New York Times. Imagine that -- somebody with a military background running the Times. Even harder to imagine these days, when the good gray New York Times has become as pretentious as it is ideological, is that it once had a publisher with a sense of humor. Punch Sulzberger used to say his family never worried about him when...

    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration’s decision to authorize the killing by the Central Intelligence Agency of a terrorism suspect who is an American citizen has set off a debate over the legal and political limits of drone missile strikes, a mainstay of the campaign against terrorism. The notion that the government can, in effect, execute one of its own citizens far from a combat zone, with no judicial process and based on secret intelligence, makes some legal authorities deeply uneasy. To eavesdrop on the terrorism suspect who was added to the target list, the American-born radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who...

    Boycott The New York Times ^ | January 5, 2009 | Don Feder
    Here’s an idea so atrocious that that it should send shivers down the spines of those who are fighting media bias — forcing taxpayers to subsidize said bias. Many newspapers are in serious financial trouble, due to a number of factors — including alienating former subscribers with bias so blatant that it leaps off the pages. The New York Times saw its ad revenue fall 16.2% from October 2007 to October 2008. Last year, its stock lost 66.8% of its value. The paper is planning to take out a $225-million mortgage on its Manhattan headquarters to cover operating deficits. No...

    The headline on a critique in today’s New York Times says it all: “Wonderful? Sorry, George, It’s a Pitiful, Dreadful Life.” Nothing more clearly illustrates the paper’s hatred of normalcy than its revisionist perspective on “It’s A Wonderful Life.” The moral of the 1946 Capra classic — life has meaning. Even if we don’t achieve our dreams, even if our existence is seemingly hum-drum, those who lead good lives will never know how much good they’ve done. George Bailey does, by glimpsing what his world would look like if he’d never been born. He discovers (to paraphrase the film) that...

    Boycott The New York Times ^ | December 15, 2008 | Don Feder
    An article in yesterday’s New York Times by Public Editor Clark Hoyt, “Separating the Terror and the Terrorists,” is a nauseating example of the paper’s moral relativism applied to the war on terrorism. Hoyt tries to rationalize The Times’ reluctance to apply the “terrorist” label to people who take hostages, blow up bystanders and shoot 5-year-old girls in their beds. Hoyt admits “The Times is sparing in its use of ‘terrorist’” when reporting on Palestinian atrocities. In an effort to be even-handed, the paper has decided to call the murder of Jews inside the 1948 boundaries of Israel “terrorist,” but...

    The New York Times’ financial woes continue to mount, and that’s good news for America. To offset shrinking revenues, the paper plans to borrow $225 million by mortgaging its 52-story Manhattan headquarters. This should be a cause for celebration for patriots everywhere. The company’s stock lost half its value this year. According to the December 9 Financial Times, “advertising revenue at the paper fell sharply in November.” The Times owes $400 million on two revolving lines of credit. Analysts believe mortgaging its building is the only way to secure the capital it needs for 2009, which is expected to be...

    Andrew Rosenthal, editorial page editor of the New York Times, moonlights as a standup comic. Rosenthal recently told the annual conference of the Association of National Advertisers that his paper "aims to ensure opinion and news are kept separate, even as the Internet increasingly blurs the lines," the Oct. 17 edition of Advertising Age reported. Stop, you're killing me. The New York Times is to objectivity what Jack the Ripper was to women's rights. If the Times strives to keep reporting and commentary separate, you and I aren't the only ones who've missed it. Earlier this year, a Rasmussen Reports...

    An article in Advertising Age reports that The New York Times slashed its quarterly stock dividend from 23 cents in the third quarter of 2007 to 6 cents for the same period of 2008. America’s “newspaper of wretched” is in a steady - and, in some cases, steep - decline. While many factors are involved, clearly, a lot of readers are fed up with the Times’ inveterate bias, highlighted in its coverage of the 2008 campaign. With the announcement of the dividend cut, shares of New York Times stock fell 6.64% to close at $5.34 on Friday. In the past...

    Boycott The New York Times ^ | November 3, 2008 | Don Feder
    In an editorial in today’s paper, The New York Times misrepresents an anti-Obama message, which it claims amounted to “character assassination.” One of its targets is an e-mailing sent by a group of Pennsylvania Jewish activists to 75,000 Jewish voters in the Keystone state, warning of the dangers of an Obama presidency. According to The Times, the e-mailing equates “a vote for Barack Obama with the ‘tragic mistake’ of Jews who ignored the warning signs of the Holocaust.” This implies the communication suggested that Obama would somehow facilitate another Holocaust. It did no such thing. The e-mailing, from a retired...

    In this campaign, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is easily The New York Times’ favorite target. John McCain’s running mate represents everything the mainstream media despise - pro-life, pro-family, pro-traditional marriage and anti-big government. Once upon a time (before he secured the GOP nomination), The Times actually liked McCain, and called him a “maverick,” its term of endearment for Republican lawmakers. Sarah Palin it could never like, even if she was running against Gen. Pinochet. The Times’ latest Palin hit is a “news story” in today’s paper, the gist of which is that his running mate is a major liability for...

    Boycott The New York Times ^ | October 29, 2008 | Don Feder
    In an article today, The New York Times continues to distort the debate over judges by equating constitutionalists on the U.S. Appeals Court to judicial activists. To illustrate what it calls conservative judicial activism, The Times cites a recent decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit upholding a South Dakota law requiring informed consent for women seeking an abortion. Under the law, doctors must explain to women that abortions “terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique human being.” In upholding the law, the Appeals Court overturned a district court decision which held the measure somehow...

    On the release of an October 22 Pew Research Center survey that found 70% of Americans think the media favors Senator Obama over Senator McCain, Boycott The New York Times editor Don Feder noted that media bias reached new lows in this election. “As bad as The New York Times has been before, it’s nothing compared to the way the paper has managed, manipulated and mangled coverage of the 2008 campaign,” Feder observed. “Not a day goes by that The Times doesn’t misrepresent John McCain, ridicule Sarah Palin, refuse to report a revelation that reflects badly on the Obama-Biden campaign,...

Stop, you’re killing me! The New York Times is to journalistic integrity what Vlad The Impaler was to “can’t-we-all-just-learn-to-get-along?” The public doesn’t share Rosenthal’s perspective. Earlier this year, a Rasmussen Reports survey found that just 24% of American voters have a favorable opinion of The New York Times - making the paper as...

    In a story in today’s New York Times, the paper once again goes to bat for illegal immigration - this time by attacking a border fence in Friendship Park near San Diego. Formerly, the Park “stood out as a spot where international neighbors [i.e., Mexicans in Mexico and Mexicans residing in the United States] can chat easily over the fence,” The Times gushes. But now, the once-tattered chain-link fence is being replaced with a more formidable barrier, making it harder for cross-border socializing - a tragedy of unparalleled proportions, from The Times’ perspective. Typically, The Times quotes one individual who...

    WASHINGTON, October 21, 2008—As The New York Times increasingly comes under fire for an October 18 story that delved into Cindy McCain’s personal life, a prominent critic of the paper is calling for a boycott of what he terms “America’s newspaper of wretched.” Don Feder, the editor of the Boycott The New York Times website http://boycottnyt.com, says the lengths that The Times went to in order to “trash” Mrs. McCain is further proof of a relentless pro-Obama bias at the newspaper. “How low will The New York Times go to trash John McCain and his wife Cindy?
