NYT: Don't Expose Our Journalists' Racist Comments

Leftmedia cries foul over conservative news exposing leftist racism on social media.

In the latest example of leftist hypocrisy, The New York Times ran a story Monday entitled, “Trump Allies Target Journalists Over Coverage Deemed Hostile to White House.” The story behind that nefarious title boils down to the Times arguing that conservatives and supporters of President Donald Trump should do as the Leftmedia says, not as the Leftmedia does. In other words, what’s fair game for the Leftmedia should be off-limits for those on the Right.

The Times writes, “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.” And what is the source of this damaging information on biased “journalists”? Why, it’s their very own public statements.

For example, a senior political editor at the Times, Tom Wright-Piersanti, was recently exposed for having a history of expressing anti-Semitic sentiments. One of his social-media comments from years past came back to bite him, leading to his demotion. Wright-Piersanti had written, “I was going to say ‘Crappy Jew Year,’ but one of my resolutions is to be less anti-Semitic. So… HAPPY Jew Year. You Jews.” Or how about this example out of CNN, whose Mohammed Elshamy tweeted, “More than 4 jewish pigs killed in #Jerusalem today by the Palestinian bomb explode.” It’s important to reiterate that these statements were public on social-media platforms.

It’s not just social-media pronouncements of racism, either. Remember, this is the same New York Times that recently launched its racist and historical-revisionist 1619 Project, asserting that America’s “true founding” was upon the arrival of slaves on the continent.

So, while the scribes and hacks at the Times make a living off of exposing statements made by politicians, celebrities, and other journalists, it is indeed ironic that they themselves cry foul when the standard they apply to others is applied to them.
