Mr. Trump has spent his career in the company of developers and celebrities, and also of grifters, cons, sharks, goons and crooks. He cuts corners, he lies, he cheats, he brags about it, and for the most part, heís gotten away with it, protected by threats of litigation, hush money and his own bravado.
There's your "Vichy" Times, you lying asshole.

There's a large group of people who are Trumpist to the core. They won't care. But those aren't the only people who voted for Trump. Trump voters are also not the only electorally significant people. Johnson and Stein voters and abstainers also matter.

Also the NYT influences other media coverage. You're not this dense.

Are you not aware that the Times endorsed Clinton for president? How many Red State stump jumpers did that persuade, d'ya think?

You claim to be an editor at a newspaper. You ought to be aware that the NYT news team is editorially separate from the op-ed team.

The complaint is about the news team. You know, the ones who would be determining where those news stories went.

You're also not so dense as to think that opinion pieces are as important as news pieces in determining what the public is informed about or how important they think things are or in influencing their views.

But you are pretty dense.

Special bonus content, as I was looking at some old posts:

Mnuchin and the other Wall Street folks in the administration and Trump's very pro-Wall Street agenda have resulted in a full on revolt in the GOP from the Tea Party... :lol:

Tea Partiers might not like some Wall Street (((types))), but this and their concern for the deficit was bullshit and was always bullshit. It was about a black president and how he was spending too much money on those undeserving blacks and poors and illegals and black poors.

erimir's reply reminded me: what is the Fuck the Fucking Vichy New York Times opinion section publishing these days?



Oh.

(Please don't actually click on the editorial. Instead, see the Michelle Wolf segment I posted two pages back and marvel at the phenomenal ratio on that tweet.)

You can save Krugman, Blow, Collins (is she even still with the paper?), Goldberg, and maybe a few other sporadic contributors, but on the whole, it's probably best to take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure. Congrats to the editors for publishing what is certain to be the recipient of numerous Hot Take of the Year awards and at least tens of thousands of hate clicks, though!

ETA: it's actually even worse than the headline makes it look. Holy shit, it's vile. James Bennet shoots another brick - Lawyers, Guns & Money

Gee, at least you're finally directly calling him out, rather than endlessly being a passive-aggressive asshole about it.

Kamilah posts a lot of Twitter stuff (which includes, if you'd bothered to notice, several long-form, thoughtful compositions using the Twitter platform), but also contributes other, meaningful content, rather than just your self-deluded bile and bullshit. Good thing you've proclaimed yourself a Published Author; I never would have guessed based on your low-grade shitposts for the past several years.

In another story of unpunished missmanagement, Univision who bought the Gawker media group (Now Gizmodo or fusion media group) after their court battle, which includes io9, gizmodo, jezebel, deadspin, the av club, The Root, splinternews, the onion, and more. Are losing over 40 writers in a buyout to help stabilize univisions mismanagement and money problems. No one seems to think Univision knows what they are doing or has a plan for the properties they bought and this is most likely putting a bandaid on a gunshot wound.

40+ Gizmodo media writers take buyout from Univision. The daily beast

I could have also put this into "Return to Gender 101"
All Things Ill-Considered: NPRís Sexist Blunder

Quote:
Is there anything more gratifying to a nice, liberal academic than turning on NPR and hearing them talk about a book you have written? In that lovely, calm, reasonable NPR voice that makes you think all will be well with the world, if only we can all learn to talk to one another in that lovely, calm, reasonable voice?

And is there anything more aggravating than hearing that voice attribute the book you wrote to your male co-author? The very same voice that interviewed you for half an hour about this very book, of which you wrote the introduction, the first chapter, the last chapter, and the conclusion?
Sounds like not only the NPR reporter excised the female co-author from any quotes, but then also failed to even acknowledge her as a co-author!

Kick them when they're down (emphasis mine):
Quote:
Stefan ó who, I should stress, is the very model of a thoughtful, respectful collaborator ó is just as appalled as I am. He writes to Kelto. I write to Kelto. Kelto responds to Stefanís email. He is so sorry.

Self made as defined by forbes: A self made entrepreneur is one that comes from a rich family, who was thrust into the lime light at 10 because of her families TV show and then lends her name to already developed cosmetic products.
See it's so easy, anyone can be a self made entrepreneur. What are you waiting for you lazy plebs!

At this point I consider it irresponsible not to speculate about what kind of kompromat the Russians have on the Sulzbergers. It’s obvious the Fuck the Fucking Vichy New York Times is fatally compromised; the question is just why.

Greenwald is the other one falling into this category. Paid stooge, useful idiot, or kompromat? (Answer: Yes.)

Default Re: Why the Mainstream Media Really Sucks

One of the local news sites has been posting vaguer and vaguer headlines for the clicks and I've now chucked them into the bin of useless news after an article mixed in with local news read "Day at the beach turns to panic, tragedy; married couple die" given that SF is on the beach I thought 'Oh shit, what happened!' Yeah turns out it was in fucking Massachusetts. While sad and unfortunate that that happened, it felt pretty manipulative for the site to mention the beach but leave off "On the other side of the country" just so they would get more clicks out of the tragedy.
