This is coming from a leftwing rag that spews vitriol and targets people for being conservative/Republican Trump supporters.
From the whiny bitches at the NY Times
A loose network of conservative operatives allied with the White House is pursuing what they say will be an aggressive operation to discredit news organizations deemed hostile to President Trump by publicizing damaging information about journalists.
It is the latest step in a long-running effort by Mr. Trump and his allies to undercut the influence of legitimate news reporting. Four people familiar with the operation described how it works, asserting that it has compiled dossiers of potentially embarrassing social media posts and other public statements by hundreds of people who work at some of the country’s most prominent news organizations.
The group has already released information about journalists at CNN, The Washington Post and The New York Times — three outlets that have aggressively investigated Mr. Trump — in response to reporting or commentary that the White House’s allies consider unfair to Mr. Trump and his team or harmful to his re-election prospects.
Operatives have closely examined more than a decade’s worth of public posts and statements by journalists, the people familiar with the operation said. Only a fraction of what the network claims to have uncovered has been made public, the people said, with more to be disclosed as the 2020 election heats up. The research is said to extend to members of journalists’ families who are active in politics, as well as liberal activists and other political opponents of the president.
……A. G. Sulzberger, the publisher of The Times, said in a statement that such tactics were taking the president’s campaign against a free press to a new level.
Speaking of ‘aggressive operation to discredit’, they solicited readers for any dirt they had on Sarah Palin.
The NYT hacks had no problem joining in on the effort to destroy Brett Kavanaugh with fabricated stories, helping to push the ‘Russian collusion’ hoax, and ignoring the anti-Semitic and bigoted anti-white tweets by their writers and editors. Scrutinizing their own comments is off limits.
Project Veritas, which was also mentioned in the article as going against “traditional journalistic ethics, using false identities, elaborate cover stories and undercover videos to entrap journalists and publicize embarrassing statements”, exposed the NYT hypocrisy and deliberate bias with their own words:
The Times‘ objection is rich, given that it boosted an effort by left-wing activists to shut down conservative media solely for their journalists’ coverage of the left and their editorial support for President Donald Trump.
In January 2017, the Times published an op-ed by an author named Pagan Kennedy, titled “How to Destroy the Business Model of Breitbart and Fake News.” The article was a puff piece boosting the efforts of Sleeping Giants (whose ringleader was later unmasked by the Daily Caller as advertising executive Matt Rivitz). The piece even reprinted instructions for helping the boycott. It concluded, admiringly: “[A] new consumer movement is rising, and activists believe that where votes failed, wallets may prevail. This struggle is about much more than ads on Breitbart News — it’s about using corporations as shields to protect vulnerable people from bullying and hate crimes.”
The Times is attempting to play the victim rather than applying the same standard toward hate speech in its own room that it applies to others. Sulzberger, who took over the paper in 2018, claims the Times has “high standards,” but in effect he is arguing that that Times journalists ought to be held to a lower standard — that it is unfair to report “on news organizations in the same way that news organizations report on elected officials and other public figures.”
Journalism is dead and The New York Times helped kill it. The editorial staff reads like the Who’s Who of the Fifth Column. One of their reporters was caught organizing for the ‘Occupy’ thugs. The rag performed fellatio on Obama for 8 years. For the entire length of Barky’s corrupt regime, the media had its lips firmly planted on his ass. The only exception is Fox News, which refused to kowtow to his emperor complex.
They declared that any speech you dislike is ‘an act of violence’.
One of their hacks smeared military veterans as “KKK”, another contributor insisted that America should get rid of the Constitution, and at least one of their former editors admitted that their Prog world view ‘bleeds through the paper’s fabric’.
To top it off, NYT publisher A.G. Sulzberger published a memo to his staff with the fatuous claim that it “has distinguished itself with fearless and fair coverage of the president, (Trump) and “is one of the main targets of this assault.”
Since Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, Sulzberger’s paper has continued to assault him and fling shit at the wall to see what sticks.
They also published a murder porn story in which Donald Trump gets assassinated. “Fearless”.
By Editor-in-chief Dean Baquet’s own admission, they switched from the failed Russia collusion hoax to the old standby of flinging accusations of “racism” and “white supremacy” .
Since the article mentions CNN, it’s important to note that network is totally out of control. It’s a cesspool of radical, racist, hate-spewing, anti-America Proglodytes who like to incite violence and praise the thugs who carry it out.
Oh, and CNN head honcho Jeff Zucker admits his reporters don’t bother to investigate the facts before they broadcast their version of a story.
President Trump’s staff has simply turned the tables on the media cabal and is fighting back.
Rags like the NY Times are lefwing screeds wrapped in the cloak of “journalism”.
Sucks to get a taste of your own rancid medicine, amirite?
