We’ve talked about the bias in the liberal media. It’s clear they have abandoned their journalistic ethics to push the left’s agenda. But in this 2016 election, they have let go all pretenses of professionalism, respect, intelligence, or even competency.
The worst offender from the old guard is The New York Times. We discussed how they are rapidly circling the drain. After their editor-in-chief illegally acquired tax documents from 1995 to malign Donald Trump then illegally published them, we knew their time was over.
It is only a matter of time before this once great publication is gone. Chances are they will be bought out by another company, probably a foreign one, yet that won’t be enough to save them. Like the younger media company Gawker, the Times will be forced to close its doors.
But they aren’t going down without a fight. Seeing the writing on the wall, Times contributors are pulling out all the stops, letting their vile, misguided, and evil hatred for conservatives fly.
Hillary Clinton may not like to use the word “terrorist,” but the New York Times has no problem using that word — to refer to Donald Trump, at least.
Columnist Charles M. Blow led with that inflammatory accusation on Monday’s opinion page:
Donald Trump is a domestic terrorist; only his form of terror doesn’t boil down to blowing things up. He’s the 70-year-old toddler who knows nearly nothing, hurls insults, has simplistic solutions for complex problems and is quick to throw a tantrum. Also, in case you didn’t know it, this toddler is mean to girls and is a bit of a bigot.
I’m no journalist, but even I know this is not how one of them writes. Someone working for a respected paper, someone with a wee bit of integrity, would never write such a childish hit piece. I’ve written some damning things about Hillary Clinton (you can read it all on our site), but it was always backed by facts.
Blowhard Blow is simply throwing a temper tantrum. He knows the Times is soon to die. Worst yet, he knows Trump’s going to win the election. But instead of reporting facts, or basing his argument, you know, on actual, provable evidence, he just lets loose with the slander.
This kind of writing is tantamount to libel. It breaks the law (even more) and opens Blow up to a lawsuit by Trump himself. But will the GOP nominee lower himself for such a fight? Perhaps.
But I have a feeling he will be too busy with running the country.
RIP The New York Times.
