The New York Times sets the agenda for the Democrat Party by deciding which stories to cover and how they frame the news.
But now The New York Times is in turmoil.
And The New York Times is facing this rebellion over bias that could change the paper forever.
On Wednesday, The New York Times published an op-ed by Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton urging President Trump to utilize the 1807 Insurrection Act to deploy the U.S. military to put down the campaign of coordinated terrorist attacks across America.
Cotton is a decorated Iraq War veteran, a Harvard Law School Graduate, and a United States Senator.
His opinion on the matter is well informed and Cotton is a policy maker with significant influence on the Trump administration.
But younger New York Times staffers and other members of the media waged a fierce campaign to bully The Times into never running opinion pieces they don’t agree with.

Times Opinion Page Editor James Bennett defended the decision to publish Cotton’s piece.
“Times Opinion owes it to our readers to show them counter-arguments, particularly those made by people in a position to set policy. We understand that many readers find Senator Cotton’s argument painful, even dangerous. We believe that is one reason it requires public scrutiny and debate,” Bennett wrote.
The new model for the media is that ideas liberals disagree with do not deserve to be heard and debated.
Instead, they should be suppressed and banished from the public square.

You won’t believe what The View wants to do to Tucker Carlson and Tulsi Gabbard
The war in Ukraine has sparked a global crisis with many devastating consequences.
Worse yet, the war propaganda coming from the so-called “mainstream” media is appalling.
And you won’t believe what The View wants to do to Tucker Carlson and Tulsi Gabbard.
The Democrat Media Complex and the warmongers of both parties are itching for escalation in the war in Ukraine.
On the Left, Congressman Eric Swalwell floated the idea of expelling Russian students from the country.
Neoconservatives on the Right like Adam Kinzinger – whose Congressional district was gerrymandered out of existence by Illinois Democrats – wants a no-fly zone over Ukraine, and Senator Lindsey Graham called for someone in the Russian government to assassinate Vladimir Putin.
People who are calling for peace and don’t want to see brinkmanship with a nuclear power, and people who are pushing back against dangerous war propaganda have been labeled “collaborators,” and even “traitors.”
Such is the case with Fox News host Tucker Carlson and former Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.
That’s why the harpies on The View want Carlson and Gabbard investigated and arrested by the Department of Justice.
So-called “Republican” Ana Navarro, who hasn’t espoused a real conservative opinion in a decade, argued, “I think DOJ (Department of Justice) in the same way it is setting up a task force to investigate oligarchs, should look into people who are Russian propagandists and shilling for Putin.”
The establishment is so hot for war, combating propaganda and resisting American involvement is somehow tantamount to “shilling for Putin.”
Whoopi Goldberg got in on the act and said, “They used to arrest people for doing stuff like this. If they thought you were colluding with a Russian agent. If they thought you were putting out information or taking information and handing over to Russia. They used to actually investigate stuff like this.”

Goldberg’s statement is mind-blowing considering she was highly critical of the Hollywood blacklist of the past.
There were communists in the State Department, media, entertainment, and academia that were actually collaborating with the Soviet Union, and the Left believed the McCarthy Era was the worst thing that ever happened in America.
It’s impossible to oppose McCarthyism and call for Carlson and Gabbard to be investigated and arrested.
There is no way that the panelists of The View would have been on board with arresting people who opposed the Vietnam War.
Carlson, who has the top rated show in cable news, is probably the strongest anti-war voice on television.
And Gabbard, a former Army reserve officer, became persona non grata for her anti-war positions.
The ladies of The View and the Left more broadly are exposing themselves to be authoritarians.
One journalist’s lawsuit could end Big Tech censoring conservatives
Social media companies suppressing conservative speech is getting out of hand.
Now someone is fighting back.
And one journalist’s lawsuit could end Big Tech censoring conservatives.
Twitter banned former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson for supposedly spreading “misinformation” about the coronavirus vaccine.
Berenson’s “crime” was posting that the COVID vaccine did not stop transmission of the virus.
In Berenson’s lawsuit, the former New York Times reporter argues that his comments were objectively true.
Berenson also cites California law, which defines common carriers as a platform that “offers to the public to carry persons, property, or messages.”
This argument could prove vital as Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas hinted in an April opinion that Big Tech companies fall under the definition of a common carrier like the phone or mail company, which would limit the ability of Big Tech to censor speech.
Berenson also argued that Twitter acted as an agent of the government to censor his speech, citing Twitter banning Berenson shortly after Joe Biden called on Big Tech companies to censor “misinformation” about the coronavirus.
“The extraordinarily close nexus between the July 2021 statements by senior executive branch officials—including President Biden himself—calling for censorship by such companies and Twitter’s corresponding immediate actions against Mr. Berenson,” the lawsuit added.
There is already established case law that the government cannot pressure private companies to carry out actions that would be unconstitutional if the government performed them.
That argument – as well as the common carrier contention – lays out two legal paths for Berenson to argue his case and potentially find a receptive audience at the Supreme Court.
Conservatives waited for years for a manner in which to secure legal recourse to Big Tech’s ideologically motivated censorship.
Thanks to Berenson’s lawsuit and Big Tech’s overreach, they may have finally found a silver bullet.

Big Tech is trying to censor one undeniable truth about the COVID vaccine
Social media censorship is out of control.
Ever since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Big Tech began banning users for posting true information.
And now Big Tech is trying to censor one undeniable truth about the COVID vaccine.
According to a new policy implemented by Twitter, the social media platform can now impose penalties up to a permanent suspension for posting that a vaccinated individual can spread COVID.
“When Tweets include misleading information about Covid-19, we may place a label on those tweets that includes corrective information about that claim,” Twitter’s policy reads. “We may apply labels to Tweets that contain, for example . . . false or misleading claims that people who have received the vaccine can spread or shed the virus (or symptoms, or immunity) to unvaccinated people.”
At the start of the pandemic, social media platforms banned users for posting that the virus likely escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China.
Now Twitter is threatening to ban anyone for posting truthful information about vaccinated individuals still being able to spread COVID.
Twitter’s new policy runs contrary to Centers for Disease Control guidelines that state that “risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection in fully vaccinated people cannot be completely eliminated as long as there is continued community transmission of the virus.”
In addition, Nature.com reported on a study published in October, which showed that fully vaccinated individuals possessed a lower risk of spreading COVID, but that spread was still possible and the vaccine’s protection against spread waned over time.
“The authors found that although the vaccines did offer some protection against infection and onward transmission, Delta dampened that effect. A person who was fully vaccinated and then had a ‘breakthrough’ Delta infection was almost twice as likely to pass on the virus as someone who was infected with Alpha. And that was on top of the higher risk of having a breakthrough infection caused by Delta than one caused by Alpha,” Nature.com reported.
One reason so many people do not trust either the vaccines or the authorities promising the vaccines are safe and effective is because no one allows an honest discussion of the vaccines.
Any hint that the vaccines may not be 100% perfect is labeled as misinformation, a conspiracy theory or “anti-vaxx.”
But Twitter censoring people for posting an honest fact that vaccinated people – while at lower risk – can still spread the coronavirus leaves people with the impression that elite institutions have something to hide.
