The New York Times, Left-Wing Propaganda Machine

The New York Times demonstrates why Gallup polling late last year showed only 36% of Americans saying they trust media a “great deal” or “fair” amount. 

Times reporters have brought fire to the feet of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, reporting on a recording of private remarks that McCarthy made to other Republicans in the days following the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol.

In those remarks, as reported by the Times, McCarthy was critical of President Donald Trump, telling Republican colleagues that he believed Democrats had votes to impeach him, in which case, “It would be my recommendation that he resign.”

The Times produced the recording after a McCarthy spokesperson denied that his boss said “he’d call Trump to say he should resign.” 

Taking words out of context to achieve something other than capturing truth is what, unfortunately, defines much of our left-wing union media today, particularly The New York Times.

I wrote in my own column then that, considering the circumstances of what appeared to be certain impeachment, Trump should consider resigning. I called it a “Masada moment,” referring to the band of Jews 2,000 years ago, trapped on a mountaintop by Roman troops, who decided to take their own lives rather than being captured by the enemy.

My advice, and it appears what McCarthy had in mind then, was that a Trump resignation with only 10 days left in his presidency would deprive Democrats of the political objectives they hoped to achieve with impeachment.

The point was to minimize political costs, not repudiate Trump.

If anyone doubts that The New York Times is about a political agenda rather than delivering truth, they should compare how the Times has covered the McCarthy affair to the story about Hunter Biden’s laptop.

The Times reporters get big headlines in their breathless delivery of the McCarthy story, which is included in an upcoming book they are publishing.

In contrast, the Times reported on March 16, 2022, confirmation of the authenticity of Hunter Biden’s emails, showing his extensive business dealings trading on the position of his vice president father. This a mere year and a half after the New York Post broke the story in October 2020.

Can anyone doubt that The New York Times, along with left-wing social media brethren, withheld this blockbuster story a month before the presidential election?

And can any thinking person not appreciate that this alone could have made all the difference in the razor-thin margins that delivered the election victory to Joe Biden?

Now the New York Post has just dropped another bombshell. 

After reviewing White House visitor logs, the Post reports “Hunter Biden’s closest business partner made at least 19 visits to the White House and other official locations between 2009 and 2015, including a sitdown with then-Vice President Joe Biden in the West Wing.”

It appears that President Biden, who has said, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” may have lied.

Is this a big story? I think so. 

As the Times plays this down, it insults our intelligence, focusing on McCarthy and diminishing the truth that what someone speculates about in private — particularly an influential political player — may diverge from what they decide to say publicly.

When President Ronald Reagan proclaimed his 11th commandment — “Thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow Republican” — surely, he was talking about what is said in public. Reagan understood the critical importance of party unity.

Under Trump’s leadership, our economy was growing at a pace not seen in years. Black and Hispanic unemployment rates reached all-time lows. A historic peace between Arab nations and Israel was achieved.

Now we are buried in debt, inflation and phlegmatic growth, and Russia has invaded Ukraine. 

Delivery of good information to voters is critical in a democracy.

We are paying a dear price for not getting it.

I don’t quite agree that the news about Kevin McCarthy is fake. Kevin McCarthy has been and always will be an opportunist and will go with the “power” side of each issue. He is NOT a conservative supporter by any means and is likely more “left” – right than John Banner ever was.
Please watch him closely and see his fence walking.

I once happened to glance at a headline in the NY Times. It was while cleaning the bottom of a parrot cage. From then on, I turned the paper upside down.

No doubt. And something must be done about it. They need to be held financially and legally liable for lying and misleading the public.

McCarthy hopefully will not be re-elected. He’s really a RINO. He never protects his own in the House. He lets Pelosi tell the Republican House members what to do and how they should act, while he tell them to apologize. All the while Talib, Ilhan and Maxine can say and do anything they want. McCarthy is like Paul Ryan, likes the title, but acts like the democrats.

The “new” disinformation board will be worthless in that it’s not credible. It’s another attempt to hide the truth. And McCarthy..Graham..are flip-floping again. Repubs need to clean house…about 18-19 aren’t with the party..

NY Slimes has been lying since the 1930s at least, on a global scale. No one seems to want to talk about it.
