Brace yourselves, the New York Times is biased against Donald Trump! 

Normally, that would carry the same news value as hearing that Michael Avenatti likes the sound of his own voice, but the interesting part is the source of that observation.  No, it’s not Captain Obvious.  It’s in a new book by former New York Times editor Jill Abramson.  She’s also a former Times Washington bureau chief and Wall Street Journal investigative reporter.  And she admits that the Times is “unmistakably anti-Trump.” 


Two other things that make this newsworthy are that Abramson points out that the Times is not merely liberal in its opinion pieces but in its alleged straight news reporting, and exposes the reason why this is so.  Abramson notes that with Trump’s rise, the Times’ publishers and editors realized that there was a strong desire among its liberal readers for negative stories on Trump, and a big financial incentive to run as many Trump stories as possible, virtually all of them negative.  In fact, Trump is right: he is almost singlehandedly responsible for saving the New York Times, whose subscriptions had fallen to 600,000 before he came along, and then skyrocketed to 2 million. 


While some of the staffers, especially the younger ones, are leftist true-believers who actually think it’s vital to bring down Trump, much of the one-sided coverage is driven by a desperate need for subscribers and online readers to draw advertisers.  It’s turned the once-vaunted “Paper of Record” into the world’s most-quoted anti-Trump clickbait farm.

So to all the liberal readers of the Times who like to hold forth in the comments sections from astride their high horses about how much better-informed they are than “Faux News” viewers, maybe it’s time you realize that you’re being exploited and misinformed.  Of course, they’d probably never read this newsletter anyway, which is a shame, since I at least tell you right up front that I am providing my personal opinions, analysis and commentary on the news, not delivering the Truth to you every day on tablets carved by God. 


I’m sure the Times' publishers don’t read me, either, but with even its own former editor finally exposing their scam, perhaps they’ll at least be honest enough to change that laughable motto from “All the News That’s Fit to Print” to “All the News That Makes Trump Look Like a Chump.”

    So glad to hear honesty for a change. It's really sad that the public is being manipulated by the news.

    People suspected it all along but it's nice to hear the confirmation from a reporter.

    Integrity means everything! Thank you.

    Aha! So the Times was caught with their pants down by one of their own, albeit a former editor. Truth will prevail.

    Reminds me of how easily the elites and Deep State are so successful at manipulating the masses of sheeple. In 1979, just after finishing the novel "The Prometheus Crisis" the accident at Three Mile Island (TMI) happened. I was born and raised in Harrisburg, PA and lived 10 miles from TMI the way the crow flies. "The Prometheus Crisis" was a fictional story of planned sabotage of a nuclear power plant, causing a meltdown. It was a terrifying concept. I believed then, and still do, that we are guinea pigs and it wasn't an accident. We are and have been expendable to the 'powers that be,' I just didn't know who they were.

    Years later, about 2010, I learned that a separate commission was formed to track everyone who lived within a certain radius of TMI, everyone in PA who gets cancer (both of my parents; my 35-year-old daughter has radiation resistant thyroid cancer, meaning my eggs were affected), and all children born to mothers who lived nearby. A friend of mine was approached shortly after the accident to sign papers giving the government the authority to collect medical data on her daughter, who was in utero at the time.

    So it's not surprising to me that the greedy vultures at The Times throw integrity and their entire moral compass out the window for money. I wonder if any sheeple who read this will finally get it?
