The New York Times has obtained nearly 350 emails from the administration of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and one person who features pretty prominently? Corrupt lobbyist Todd Howe, a former Cuomo loyalist who helped the government convict two top Cuomo aides, Joseph Percoco and Alain Kaloyeros.
Billionaires: they’re just like us! At least, that’s what the New York Times wants you to believe. After publishing a highly sympathetic profile of beleaguered Tesla CEO Elon Musk last week, one of the authors of that piece, David Gelles, has now written a behind-the-scenes look at his interview with Musk. The new…
If you are a racist—or, far more likely, a Very Nice Person who just tolerates and enables racism through inaction—there is absolutely nothing you love more than an opportunity for a good old false equivalence. And today is Bret Stephens’ lucky day!
The Daily Caller—an outlet which employs Benny Johnson, a guy who has been accused of plagiarism at not one but two different jobs, as a “reporter at large” —tried to out-pedantic the New York Times today. It did not go well.
The New York Times announced today it will expand its “coverage and audience-engagement initiative in Australia,” sending several staffers to the land down under. One of the exports is Splinter fav Bari Weiss, an editor and dipshit whose greatest op-ed hits include her love letter to the dumbest “intellectual”…
Finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for: Andrew Sullivan, a bologna sandwich with a British accent, has weighed in on tech writer Sarah Jeong’s hiring by the New York Times in a new piece for New York magazine. He used the word “neo-Marxist” twice. It was terrible.
New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger, joined by his atrocious opinion page editor James Bennet, recently met with President Donald Trump for a meeting that, at his request, was off the record. And then the Times got played, because no one ever learns.
To the surprise of no one, Donald Trump proved once again his word is meaningless.
A semi-wise man once misattributed to Winston Churchill a quote that, I’m paraphrasing here, goes something like: If you’re not liberal when you’re young, you have no heart. Then you grow old and your heart turns black and you are compelled to vote for similarly black-hearted, joyless Republicans.
It’s been a minute since we’ve been here, but as with any perennial scourge, we’re here again: A Big Name journalist is leaving Twitter, and she wrote about it so that we plebes may know why.
Here’s a trash piece of content from the New York Times:
There’s a reason David Brooks has such a high-profile perch at the New York Times. It’s because he routinely provides unique insights into our society that other, lesser writers might have missed. Take his latest column, in which he makes a stunning discovery: racism....it’s real.
Frank Bruni, a flailing man who casts about aimlessly for newspaper column ideas in the manner of a blind koala bear slowly waving its paws in hopes of grasping a eucalyptus leaf, is the answer to the question: Can someone without any actual thoughts or ideas still become a prominent New York Times political…
Alan Dershowitz wrote one whiny column about people shunning him on Martha’s Vineyard and that caused the New York Times to write four damn stories about him in a week, and everyone was kind of embarrassed by the whole thing. Why did they write all those stories, anyhow?
Over the past week, the New York Times has run an objectively stupid number of stories about lawyer and scumbag Alan Dershowitz, after Dershowitz complained that people on Martha’s Vineyard were being mean to him because of his support for Donald Trump.
After former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson tweeted a spot-on criticism about the paper totally missing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s primary victory on Tuesday night, the Daily Beast followed up with her. As it turned out, she had a lot of constructive, well-deserved barbs to aim at the Gray Lady.
Last night, we saw a rare glimpse of what happens when you refuse to settle for Conventionally Electable or Better Than the Republican in the political arena: Latinx socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won a decisive victory over New York congressman Joe Crowley, a Democratic kingmaker who was widely viewed as a…
Tuesday’s episode of The Daily, the New York Times’ mega-popular news podcast, threw listeners a curveball. In opening a show about the Trump administration’s policy of separating migrant families at the southern U.S. border, host Michael Barbaro and White House reporter Julie Hirschfeld Davis described to listeners…
The news last week that the Justice Department had secretly seized phone and email records from a journalist illustrated the extreme lengths to which the Trump administration will go to crack down on leaks. The news that the seizure was intertwined with a relationship the reporter had been having with someone on her…
Former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova has become a popular go-to guy lately for Fox News and “deep state” conspiracy theorists hell-bent on disrupting the investigations of former members of the Trump campaign and their ties to Russia.
