The New York Times defended the insanely racist actions of one Governor

Published

The corporate-controlled press is deeply concerned with canceling anyone who ever did something improper.

But the rules do not apply if a person is useful to the Left.

Now The New York Times defended the insanely racist actions of one Governor.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam survived his embarrassing racism scandal when Democrats refused to “cancel” him because he was too valuable.

In Northam’s medical school yearbook from the early 1980s, he appeared in a picture either dressed in a KKK hood, or wearing blackface – he can’t remember which.

People have been canceled for far less, but Northam was Governor of an important state and the top two Democrats in the line of succession were also mired in scandal.

Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax was accused of rape, and Attorney General Mark Herring had a blackface scandal of his own.

Democrats did not want the state to fall in the hands of a Republican – the fourth in line of succession – so they rallied around Northam.

Now The New York Times is writing a fawning piece about Northam’s reign as Governor and his “growth” into a progressive.

From The Times:

“Mr. Northam’s arc, from political pariah denounced by nearly every national Democrat to a popular incumbent with support from Black elected officials and even progressive activists, is a complex story of personal growth and political pressure, a testament to how crisis can also provide opportunity. However, it would not have been possible without the Black Virginians who rallied around him even as they stared down immense pressure to help force him from office — Black staff members who stayed in the administration, a Legislative Black Caucus that chose to focus on policy goals rather than resignation, and a Black activist community that quickly followed the lawmakers’ strategic lead . . . Instead of derision, Mr. Northam and the Black leaders who supported him showed the power of redemption, humility and growth.”

The idea that Northam grew is laughable because shortly after the scandal first broke, Northam retracted his confession and said he wasn’t sure if he even appeared in the picture at all.

Northam’s story isn’t a complex journey of growth – it’s a sterling example of political utility.

The Democrats needed Northam, so he stayed in power.

It’s the difference between Al Franken getting destroyed by the #MeToo movement, and Joe Biden effectively destroying the #MeToo movement by facing virtually no backlash amid the Tara Reade allegations.

The Times’ paean about Northam’s rule is particularly ironic because it was the same paper that “canceled” a 19-year-old young woman for using the N-word in a three-second clip as a 15-year-old high school girl while rejoicing in getting her driver’s permit.

As a result she was forced to withdraw from the University of Tennessee and effectively had her life ruined because The Times chose to play a lead role in a revenge scheme from a jealous former classmate.

The New York Times issued a humiliating correction that proved one undeniable truth

Published

on

For better or worse, The New York Times is the paper of record in the United States.

But The Times also has a major problem on its hands.

And now The New York Times issued a humiliating correction that proved one undeniable truth.

The Times issued a correction to a story by science and health reporter Apoorva Mandavilli in which Mandavilli wildly overstated the number of children hospitalized from the Chinese coronavirus.

The Times initially reported ‘nearly 900,000 children have been hospitalized’ with COVID since the pandemic began, when the factual data in the now-corrected version is that ‘more than 63,000 children were hospitalized with Covid-19 from August 2020 to October 2021,’” the correction read.

This did not appear to many as an innocent error.

The Times – like the rest of the corporate-controlled media – is fully onboard with forcibly vaccinating every American.

As Big Pharma asks the government for emergency use authorizations to administer the vaccine to children, the next big fight will play out over vaccine mandates in schools.

Mandavilli’s article played into the fear-mongering the corporate-controlled media uses to push vaccine mandates by overstating the risk to children from the Chinese coronavirus.

The Times used to have a highly competent science and health reporter named Donald McNeil who never used to make embarrassing, agenda-driven errors like this.

But back in February, The Times forced out McNeil after woke staffers revolted over reports that McNeil offended privileged SJW teenagers on a trip to South America several years prior.

Polls show trust in the media is at an all-time low.

A big reason why is corporate-controlled media outlets like The Times sacrifice accuracy for narrative storytelling.

The media issues corrections when so-called “journalists” make errors.

But the errors always run in one direction and the correction never gets as much traction or coverage as the initial claim.

The New York Times was forced to issue one humiliating correction

Published

The New York Times sets the political agenda for the corporate-controlled media and the Democrat Party.

Whatever leads in The Times gets repeated over and over ad nauseam as “truth” on the Left.

But now The New York Times was forced to issue one humiliating correction.

The corporate-controlled media tried to distract from Joe Biden’s failure to secure the southern border by spreading a false claim that border patrol agents on horseback whipped Haitian illegal aliens attempting to sneak into the country.

One of these corporate-controlled media activists was Michael Shear of The New York Times.

Shear wrote a story about the border crisis where Shear falsely claimed border patrol agents used the reins on their horses to whip illegal aliens.

“The images of agents on horseback chasing, and in some cases using the reins of their horses to strike at running migrants, came as Mr. Biden’s administration moved to forcefully round up and deport more than 2,000 of the 15,000 migrants who gathered in a makeshift camp in Del Rio, Texas. Thousands more have been moved to other parts of the country or have been released with orders to appear in court later,” Shear’s original version of the story read.

The photographer who took the pictures of the agents on horseback attempting to defend the southern border said the photos were misconstrued and that the agents never struck anyone.

That led The Times to issue a correction admitting their original story contained fake news.

“An earlier version of this article overstated what is known about the behavior of some Border Patrol agents on horseback. While the agents waved their reins while pushing migrants back into the Rio Grande, The Times has not seen conclusive evidence that migrants were struck with the reins,” the correction read.

In this case, the corporate-controlled media’s lies about border patrol agents whipping illegal aliens led to catastrophic policy consequences.

The Biden administration suspended the horseback unit – which cripples the ability of the border patrol to secure the border because vehicles cannot travel on certain terrain at the border and horses are the only means of travel.

Biden also threatened to fire the agents involved on live television putting their families at risk of losing everything.

The corporate-controlled media likes to claim it is the “reality” or “fact” based media.

But this episode proved once again that corporate-controlled media outlets will run wild with false narratives if they think it will serve the Left’s political interests.

The New York Times Shockingly Edited One Headline to Soften Joe Biden’s Grave Error

Published

The corporate press is fully an extension of the Left.

So-called mainstream outlets exist to attack Conservatives and prop up the Democrat establishment.

And The New York Times shockingly edited one headline to soften Joe Biden’s grave error.

Joe Biden’s horrendous handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal has collapsed his presidency.

His approval rating has dropped like a log as 13 service members died during a terrorist attack at the Kabul airport.

During the transfer ceremony of the fallen soldiers, Biden checked his watch multiple times, infuriating the Gold Star parents.

The corporate press tried to “debunk” the watch-checking story, but failed to do so after multiple family members confirmed it.

Now the press is trying to soften the edges on Biden invoking his dead son Beau when talking to the families of departed soldiers.

The parents there to claim their loved-ones’ remains say Biden’s incessant talk about his son Beau after the ceremony was off-putting.

You’d think he’d have the decency to let them discuss their deceased soldiers’ lives and grieve the loss of their own children.

Disgustingly, The New York Times edited a headline to downplay the exasperation these family members felt.

Despite the headline change, The Times did a poor job of capturing the frustration of the family members.

For example, The Washington Post at least let the family’s voices be heard.

When describing the sentiments of fallen Marine Rylee McCollums’s family, The Post wrote:

“The president brought up his son, Beau, according to her account, describing his son’s military service and subsequent death from cancer. It struck the family as scripted and shallow, a conversation that lasted only a couple of minutes in ‘total disregard to the loss of our Marine,’ [sister] Roice said.”

“Scripted and shallow” sums up the Biden presidency.

He’s routinely told who he’s supposed to call on during press conferences, and he’s so addled, he doesn’t even bother to keep those details to himself.

Can the so-called mainstream media’s protection of Biden continue at such shameless levels?
