What has happened
to the New York Times?

Washington Times, by Joseph Curl

Original Article

Posted By:Toledo, 2/3/2014 6:40:11 AM

The Gray Lady, America’s Paper of Record, where readers turn to find “All the News That’s Fit to Print,” has gone off the deep end.Last Friday, the paper published a huge story. “Christie Knew About Bridge Lane Closings, Port Authority Official Says,” the headline screamed.Huge. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, during a two-hour press conference weeks ago, had repeatedly insisted that he knew nothing about lane closures on a bridge leading into New York City, after allegations emerged that the lanes were shut down to punish a mayor who failed to endorse the governor’s re-election bid. Now, The Times said,

The Gray Lady is a nattering nabob of negativism and has been liberal batty crazy since Walter Durant got his Pulitzer for his slobbering love affair with Uncle Joe Stalin.

This is nothing new for the NYT, they did the same thing to John McCain in 2008 with allegations of an affair based on evidence that turned out not to exist.

It seems that true journalism is dead for now. Most stories in traditional papers such as the NYSlimes are rushing headlong into the yellow kind of journalism.

Do J-Schools even teach the principles of journalism any more? Stories should answer these questions: Who, What, Where, When, Why and How?

Actually, novelists should also follow the same principles in what they are writing if they want to be believable. Oh, I forgot, we have a whole generation that doesn´t seem to care if a story is believable, as long as it´s kool. Take for instance the story of our current POTUS.

Are there really that many liberals who are willing to prop up the NYT with advertising and subscriptions? What if everyone who thinks the NYT is a piece of garbage were to stop supporting it financially. How long would it last?

The ONLY solution to this media distortion is for the good people of America to stop contributing one dime to it economic coffers. Then they will choke on their own phlegm.

There is no Grey Lady.

Ladies are refined.
They are insightful.
They are gracious.
They are truthful.
They have class.

The New York Times is not a Lady.
She is a Progressive charlatan that is devoid of journalism and shows contempt for what our Founding Fathers died for.

What is ironic is that those very principals gave the New York Times the opportunity to first be an example of great journalism and now a greater example of non-journalism.

Her correct name cannot be share with Lucianne.com because the "Good Taste Police" would rightfully have to delete it!

Some Leftist/Liberal/Progressive is funding the New York Slimes. If George Soros funds Media Matters, Center for American Progress, Hitler´s PAC, and 400 other organizations, what makes you think he would not pour millions or billions into the Times to keep the propaganda flowing.

Was it Dan Rather who wrote the propaganda piece? He is one goofball who loves fabricated "facts". The DNC media is what it is and anyone who wants to participate with it has abandoned any hope of an honest life.

If there were such evidence failure to publish it now would allow some GOP supporters to flush their contributions down the toilet. The best way to serve the political interests of the Democrat party would be to let the GOP invest heavily in a front runner who could easily discredited late in the game, even after the primary.

Either the claim is legit or it is not. If not, we have pure slanderous political activism. If it is legit but the evidence is being held back what other than shameful political activism would be the motive?

The days if simple media bias are well behind us, its downright activism.

The Times believes, as it always has, that it has a sacred duty to get Democrats elected. A Democrat hegemony is its dearest dream. Sandbagging, libeling, and smearing any Republican are acceptable tactics because the end justifies the means. In short, the NYT, like the WAPO, is a Democrat institution.

folks, if the Slimes is so pointless, than why all the commentary on this thread, much from those of us fortunate to live FAR beyond the Hudson River? Sadly, lots of people read it avidly, I´ve known those who subscribed and received it in places like Atlanta, Knoxville, Cleveland, Little Rock, and Tulsa.
So it matters, and there are those who shape their attitudes based on what the paper says. And believe what it says.
and don´t get too exercised about the paper´s stances. Yes, they´re generally wrong and they stink and all. And character assassination of those not with the program is and has long been the order of the day. Again, so? If you want a giggle, look up some of the stories from a hundred years back in cities that had several competing papers. Slander against real or imagined opponents, sometimes based upon political affiliation, sometimes based on alliances with that or a competing paper, were long the order of the day, untainted by any pretense of accuracy or even-handed treatment. Allegations of bribery, illegitimate offspring, sympathies with the nation´s enemies or the Irish or the ´robber barons´ or .... well, the list was endless.
All that´s new is the reach of this paper.
Like many, I will be happy when the building is vacant and the furniture is being sold at sheriff´s sale as part of the bankruptcy. But it probably won´t be this month.

All this time wasting of good people, reacting to an onslaught of Communist style agitation, endless rounds of agitating propaganda.
They are harsh, dominating, controlling voices to be ignored. We are pro freedom voices who all need to learn the basics of speaking for freedom. LEARN !
stop reacting to endless commie trash. Ignore RINO
Christie´s current trumped up dilemma!
Support Christie if and when he talks about freedom.
We all have a "lesson" from Mitt, a rare decent guy in politics but a nothing as a pro freedom speaking citizen. A lackluster Christie can learn from Mitt. Chris could also join up with Cruz and Rand, and speak up about ending big government, massive taxes, every day. Let´s face it, Chris HAS the platform and he´s LETTING IT GO TO WASTE ! ! !

The blockbuster letter said ‘evidence exists’
the governor knew about the lane closings when they were happening.
Christie has always said he knew about the morning slow down.
Everyone who listened to traffic reports knew that there were slow downs on four mornings.
i guarantee that
there was a slow down this morning, too.
The NYT took this bit of info and falsely blew it into Christie orchestrating the shenanigans.
Yesterday, the NJ Democrat leading the investigation said that so far nothing shows Christie
had anything to do with the morning slow down.
I´m sure the NYT will get right on that.
The national media has so damaged themselves , especially over the last 15 years ,
that should we ever have another 9/11 type emergency requiring national instructions on evacuations, sheltering in place , etc-
would anyone believe them ?
# 19 Governor Christie has been invited to speak at CPAC and has accepted.

It´s the daily drumbeat from sunrise to past midnight, the NBC/ABC/CBS corrupt liars, the Today show, the Tonight show, letterman, the talk shows.....it´s all of them, combined with the Ass Press of liars and lefties......this is what we true conservatives are up against in 2014, not to mention the Democrat Nazi Socialist Party of thug unions, political liars, inept morons like Biden, Obama, kerry, Clinton, Reid, Pelosi, Schumer, et al....

How do we change this massive national fraud short of Civil War 2 ???? How do we convince our kids and grandkids that they are being lied to every day, all day?

In the game of baseball, if the second baseman is able to conceal the ball in his glove as the runner eases off the bag in the belief that the horsehide is in the possession of the pitcher, that is deception. Neither the base runner nor the fans look at the baseman´s trickery as unfair or unethical. Most sports allow for certain deceptions. Liberals look at the "game" of politics in precisely the same way, and it bothers them not if a liberal news organization is prepared to employ "fake but accurate" (whatever that means) evidence in support of a claim that will harm the conservative opposition. The reason is that it is employed in the righteous cause of progressivism (i.e. soft socialism). Conservatives, in their view, are evil, and deserve to be caught off base by any means available, and if that means hiding the ball, or making up a news story, so be it.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

The moon took on an eerie blood-red hue early Tuesday during the first total lunar eclipse of 2014, a celestial sight that wowed potentially millions of stargazers across North and South America. The total lunar eclipse of April 15 lasted about 3.5 hours between late Monday and early Tuesday, with the Earth´s shadow slowing darkening the face of the so-called "Blood Moon" in a jaw-dropping sight for stargazers willing to stay up extra late or rise super-early for the event. "Definitely worth the early wake-up call," skywatcher Brett Bonine of Arkansas told Space.com in an email.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) challenged the notion that former IRS official Lois Lerner still had the right to remain silent since she had made factual assertions since she invoked her Fifth Amendment right. Gowdy said that he counted 17 separate factual assertions by Lerner which in his opinion was enough to force her to be cross-examined. “That’s a lot of talking for someone who wants to remain silent. That’s a lot of talking!” Gowdy thundered. “If you honestly that you can make 17 separate factual assertions and still invoke your right to remain silent, then please tell me what waiver is?”

MURRYSVILLE, Pa. - It was just before the start of class and the hallways were packed as usual with students at their lockers or chatting with friends. Nate Moore was walking to homeroom, book in hand, when a classmate he knew to be quiet and unassuming tackled a freshman boy a few feet in front of him. Moore thought it was the start of a fistfight and went to break it up. But 16-year-old Alex Hribal wasn´t throwing punches - he was stabbing his victim in the belly, Moore said.

New York - Most New Yorkers don´t even know it exists. But a million forgotten souls are buried in mass graves dug by convicts on a tiny, forbidden island east of the Bronx. Since 1869, still-born babies, the homeless, the poor and the unclaimed have been stacked one upon the other, three coffins deep, on Hart Island. Corpses are interred in great, anonymous trenches. There are no tombstones. Small white posts in the ground mark each 150 adult bodies. A thousand children and infants are buried together per grave. It is one of the largest cemeteries in the United States. And the least

In a desperate effort to explain away his work as a paid government informant, the Rev. Al Sharpton yesterday claimed that he first ran into the FBI’s arms after his life was threatened by gangsters, an incident that prompted him to then record 10 face-to-face encounters with one of those dangerous hoodlums. That story is a lie. In fact, Sharpton’s fabricated tale is belied by FBI records that provide a clear account of when and why he began working as a cooperating informant. After unveiling his fable at a morning press conference, Sharpton repeated his claims last night at

IRS’s Lerner sought to deny
Crossroads tax status, emails show
Politico, by Rachael Blade    Original Article
Posted By: toledo- 4/9/2014 2:54:16 PM     Post Reply
A House committee on Wednesday accused former IRS official Lois Lerner of breaking agency rules by aggressively urging the agency to deny tax-exempt status to Crossroads GPS, the giant political nonprofit founded by Karl Rove, and several other conservative groups as recently as January 2013. The Republican-led panel released emails showing that Lerner took an interest in Crossroads GPS — inquiring with IRS officials why they hadn’t had their tax-exempt status revoked. The committee letter calls her actions “an aggressive and improper pursuit of Crossroads by Lerner, but no evidence she directed review of similarly situated left-leaning groups.”

House Committee Votes to Refer ex-IRS

On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. By a vote of 23 to 14, a closed-door session of the House committee determined that Lerner’s role in the alleged singling out of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for undue scrutiny was a criminal act. The vote was “just another attempt by Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for political gain,” according to the ex-IRS official’s attorney, William Taylor. In spite of the fact that the DOJ has already been investigating both Lerner and the alleged

While today´s vote tally -- which broke down along party lines, with not a single Republican senator voting in favor of the bill -- was not unexpected, it came after weeks of a heavy messaging push from Democrats. Had it passed, the bill would have made it illegal for employers to retaliate against a worker who inquires about or discloses her or his wages or the wages of another employee in a complaint or investigation. It also would make employers liable to civil actions Those changes, Democrats argued, would make it easier for women suing for wages equal to their

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
