  • The Mueller Report Is Coming. Here’s What to Expect.

    The New York Times ^ | Feb. 21, 2019 | Neal K. Katyal
    The special counsel Robert Mueller will apparently soon turn in a report to the new attorney general, William Barr. Sure, there is still a lot of activity, including subpoenas, flying around, but that shouldn’t stop Mr. Mueller. The report is unlikely to be a dictionary-thick tome, which will disappoint some observers. But such brevity is not necessarily good news for the president. In fact, quite the opposite. For months, the president’s lawyers have tried to discredit Mr. Mueller and this report, but their efforts may have backfired. A concise Mueller report might act as a “road map” to investigation for...

    CNS News ^ | February 20, 2019 | By Michael W. Chapman
    President Donald J. Trump, who has endured 90% negative coverage from the network news programs for more than a year, tweeted today that the reporting by the New York Times "is false," and added that The Times is a "true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE." NYT Publisher A.G. Sulzberger responded in a statement posted online, saying that Trump's views are "false" and "dangerous." In his Feb. 20 tweet, Trump wrote, "The New York Times reporting is false. They are a true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE."
  • JOURNALIST GROUPS ALARMED BY JUSTICE THOMAS’S CALL TO RECONSIDER FREE PRESS RULING

    Professional journalism groups reacted with alarm after Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas released an opinion Tuesday urging the high court to reconsider a landmark freedom of the press decision called New York Times v. Sullivan. The Sullivan ruling generally shields reporters and news platforms from libel or defamation lawsuits provided they were acting in good faith. Though journalists believe that protection is essential, Justice Thomas said the high court was wrong to usurp the role of states in regulating libel. “[Sullivan] and the Court’s decisions extending it were policy-driven decisions masquerading as constitutional law,” Thomas’s opinion reads. “We should not...

    33 min ago. U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the special counsel investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election, headed to the White House on Monday amid reports he would be leaving the post. A source told Reuters that Rosenstein had not been fired but had spent the weekend contemplating whether he should resign after a New York Times report said in 2017 he had suggested secretly recording President Donald Trump.
  • Dems seize on Times bombshell to push allegations of Trump obstruction

    The Hill ^ | 02/20/19 | Olivia Beavers and Brett Samuels
    Democrats are seizing on a bombshell New York Times report as further evidence that President Trump may have sought to obstruct justice in investigations of his campaign and administration. The Times reported Tuesday that the president asked then-acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker late last year to put U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman in charge of the investigation into Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen. Cohen pleaded guilty last year to bank fraud, tax fraud and making payments to silence women alleging that they had affairs with Trump. Berman, an ally of Trump who donated to his 2016 campaign, had recused himself from...

    Well, well, well, roughly a quarter of the 2.2 billion dollars being spent on Obamaphones, has gone to a company owned by Carlos Slim. Todd Shields of Bloomberg reports: Slim's TracFone Wireless Inc. received about a quarter of the funds from the U.S. government's Lifeline program, according to the latest figures. Today, a House subcommitteeasked why the program, paid for by fees charged to U.S. phone subscribers, tripled in cost since 2008. How many other markets have grown 300% in the years since the crash? Slim is often called the richest man in the world, and owns the cell phone monopoly in Mexico,...

    Earlier today I wrote about the Washington Post’s summary of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ efforts to walk back an embarrassing FAQ which her office used as part of the rollout for the Green New Deal. As bad as the Post story was in some ways, at least it managed to convey some of the embarrassing twists and turns this story has taken over the past four days. The NY Times published a summary today which omits all the troubling details and manages to work in the standard “Republicans pounce” formula used routinely by the media for any story that embarrasses a Democrat....

    Former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson acknowledged Thursday that some parts of her new book were not properly cited after multiple individuals raised claims that she lifted material. In a statement to The Washington Post, Abramson said certain footnotes in her book, "Merchants of Truth," don't match up correctly with the material in the book, and that certain passages should have been cited as direct quotations. "I was up all night going through my book because I take these claims of plagiarism so seriously," Abramson said in the statement to The Post. "In writing 'Merchants of Truth,' I...

    American Thinker ^ | 02/07/2019 | Monica Showalter
    Jill Abramson, the former New York Times editor who carries a little plastic Obama doll in her purse for comfort, has written quite a book, trying to describe the news industry the same way the great David Halberstam once did in "The Powers That Be" in the 1970s. She examines four news outfits, plus Facebook, in an attempt to replicate Halberstam's tome about how the news industry evolved in her new book, titled: "Merchants of Truth." Her conclusion? Legacy media rules. Upstart media has no value. After a big buildup from this, she's got a problem: She's being accused of plagiarism. Here's the New York Times's generally positive review from...

    President Trump leaned hard on the strength of the American economy during his second State of the Union address on Tuesday, but with a blend of precise statistics and gauzy superlatives that are much more difficult to measure. He also returned to a theme that dominated the second year of his presidency — a quest for a border wall with Mexico to cope with what he said is a crisis of crime and drugs in the United States caused by illegal immigration. The two issues dominated his address, which in tone was more measured than his biting Twitter feed, but...
  • ‘Mary Poppins,’ and a Nanny’s Shameful Flirting With Blackface (The NYT Op-Ed finds it racist)

    The New York Times ^ | 1/28/2019 | Daniel Pollack-Pelzner
    “Mary Poppins Returns,” which picked up four Oscar nominations last week, is an enjoyably derivative film that seeks to inspire our nostalgia for the innocent fantasies of childhood, as well as the jolly holidays that the first “Mary Poppins” film conjured for many adult viewers. Part of the new film’s nostalgia, however, is bound up in a blackface performance tradition that persists throughout the Mary Poppins canon, from P. L. Travers’s books to Disney’s 1964 adaptation, with disturbing echoes in the studio’s newest take on the material, “Mary Poppins Returns.” One of the more indelible images from the 1964 film...

    The president of FamilyTreeDNA, one of the country’s largest at-home genetic testing companies, has apologized to its users for failing to disclose that it was sharing DNA data with federal investigators working to solve violent crimes. In the booming business of consumer DNA testing and genealogy, FamilyTreeDNA had marketed itself as a leader of consumer privacy and a fierce protector of user data, refusing, unlike some of its competitors, to sell information to third parties. But unbeknown to its users, the Houston-based firm quietly and voluntarily agreed in 2018 to open its database of more than two million records to...

    The ‘Ethics’ of Trump’s Border Wall A wall would cause harm to immigrants and refugees, all of whom are equal to us in the eyes of God. Is the border wall ethical? President Trump has suggested the wall is moral and those who oppose it immoral. His critics claim the opposite. To answer this, we have to consider its effect on humans. What harm could a border wall cause to immigrants and refugees, all of whom are equal to us in the eyes of God? Some people who cross the border are in desperate search of work to support their...

    Not usually big on the New York Times, but just saw this article, while searching on the topic. -- CARACAS, Venezuela — The agents barged into the home of Yonaiker Ordóńez, 18, on Sunday morning as he slept. Dressed in helmets and carrying rifles, the men grabbed the teenager and forced him to another room without explaining why they came, his family said. “They took him to the area behind and killed him there,” said his sister, Yengly González. The operation resembled one of the many police raids against the gangs that terrorize Venezuela’s poor neighborhoods. But Mr. Ordóńez’s only...

    My words seldom appear in the New York Times. It is interesting when they do. It shows, to use a phrase of the Left “we are making progress.”  This occurrence was from the article published on Ammoland about the Third Circuit failing to protect Second Amendment rights.  From nytimes.com: The 49-year-old Judge Bibas, a former law professor, won plaudits for his dissenting opinion. “It is easy to see why President Trump chose to appoint him,” said an article on the website ammoland.com that appeared under the headline: “Third Circuit: Second Amendment Is a Second Rate Right.” John O. McGinnis,...

    I'll give the New York Times some credit. It may be a mostly worthless Democrat messaging machine that promotes racism and anti-Semitism, but at least, unlike the Washington Post, it still maintains some of its traditional habit of correcting errors after they appear. A properly woke paper would embrace the errors, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez style, as being morally right, even if factually wrong.

    You’d better believe that most of us already know that about the New York Times, but it’s good to get confirmation from its previous executive editor. In her new tell-all book Merchants of Truth, Jill Abramson dishes on her past experience at the Gray Lady but also on what has happened since her abrupt departure in 2014. Abramson accuses her successor Dean Baquet — who won a power battle to take over her job — of following a financial incentive to allow opinion to leach into news coverage at the Paper of Record: “Though Baquet said publicly he didn’t...

    Shortened title. Full title: NYT Editorials About Deaths of Reagan, Bush Called Them Fortunate in Foreign Policy, Slammed Current Republican Presidents The New York Times editorials about the last two elected Republican presidents to die, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, have strong similarities, calling them both fortunate in their foreign policy victories, comparing them positively to the current GOP office-holders, and bemoaning the negative state of politics under the current commanders in chief. Reagan, the 40th president, died in 2004 at the age of 93, and Bush, his vice-president who succeeded him as the 41st president, died Friday at...
