Key word is "news" not "Carlos Slim's hateful opinion".

Exactly. This whole business of the newspaper as impartial public space is a fiction invented sometime in the mid-20th century. It wasn't true and isn't.

I think the more sensible liberals who still read the NY Slimes will get tired of being called racists just because an accident of birth made them white.

You know you've gone off the rails as a liberal rag when slate.com raises its eyebrows at you.

From the transcript:

I find it appalling that a NYT staffer believes that racism was the 'foundation of this country.' It was certainly present, but the foundation can be found in the Declaration and Constitution. That is precisely how we were able to get over past racism. Remember MLK referred to the Constitution as a 'promissory note.' That was the 'foundation,' not racism or white supremacy.
Wow, that is news to me. I always thought it was founded in protest of "taxation without representation".

I think that many of the NYT staff need to find other jobs, starting with whoever makes the hiring decisions. Anyone remember Sarah Jeong? https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-45052534

Mainstream media, doing what they do.



NYT has built it's reputation on progressive liberal hate. Completely expected considering it is managed and staffed by progressive liberals.


They claim Trump is shutting them up saying "Trump is threatening the 1st!" when the fact is they haven't been stopped (nor should they be) from publishing the most insane things with little calling out from the Dems. It's just the way they like it. Nobody stopping them yet claiming to be the victims.


The left has certainly be the arbiters of shutting down freedom of speech. An undeniable fact, though they will for sure.



Check this out:
https://www.macrotrends.net/stocks/c...s/gross-profit


Look at the chart of quarterly RPL. They were on their last breath losing 10s of millions each year, until Trump won and their revenues jumped 25%. Progressive liberal hate for Trump has been beddy beddy gewd to Dem.


They still haven't been able to crack 1.8B over the last 3 years. Even with their move to online subscriptions. It's an important metric to have revenues lower by 35% than 15 years ago. When Trump goes their revenue will plummet unless another Pub is elected after him.


Maybe that's why they're trying so hard to lose 2020.

Well, they are not doing a very good job of it. Almost the Gillette of the publishing industry.

The job of the National Inquirer is to sell newspapers. The NYT used to be somewhat interesting and informative, but no longer. Partisan Dem and SJWs hacks have hijacked this paper.

Well, it was against ''white people'' so it's perfectly fine. The NYT staff are what Lenin would call ''useful idiots."
