NYT to ‘Rededicate’ Itself to Honest Reporting

The Times will continue its condescension and grossly biased reporting.

The Leftmedia really blew it in this election cycle, not because they misread opinion, but because they tried to dictate it. And The New York Times was at the forefront of that effort, including its August front-page call to abandon what was left of objective journalism in favor of defeating Donald Trump. On Friday, the paper’s publisher, Arthur Sulzberger Jr., penned a letter to readers promising to “reflect” on the paper’s coverage. He wrote, “We aim to rededicate ourselves to the fundamental mission of Times journalism. That is to report America and the world honestly, without fear or favor.” If you believe the Times has the slightest intent to report honestly after Trump’s election — especially when the same letter claims to “believe we reported on both candidates fairly” — we have some oceanfront property in Arizona to sell you. Likewise if you buy that anyone at the Times thinks they, and not Trump’s voters, are the ones who blew it.

New York Post columnist and former Times reporter Michael Goodwin got it right: “Because [the Times] demonized Trump from start to finish, it failed to realize he was onto something. And because the paper decided that Trump’s supporters were a rabble of racist rednecks and homophobes, it didn’t have a clue about what was happening in the lives of the Americans who elected the new president.” The real purpose of Sulzberger’s letter was to stop the bleed of subscribers. But the Times will no doubt continue its elitist ways of condescension and grossly biased reporting, further driving a wedge between it and the rest of the country. It’s just what leftists do.
