Color me shocked. The New York Times has grown so blatantly biased that even MSNBC can no longer stand it. Bloomberg journalist Mark Halperin was on MSNBC’s Morning Joe when he excoriated the New York Times for their ugly attacks on Donald Trump, even though Mr. Trump had just succeeded in winning the election.
“I love The New York Times. I think it’s a great institution… But look at the headline of this story…
The front page headline of The New York Times today reads: “Democrats, Students And Foreign Allies Face The Reality Of A Trump Presidency“
Their headline is not ‘Disaffected Americans Have A Champion Going To The White House’ or ‘The Country Votes For Fundamental Change.’ The headline is about how disappointed the friends of the people who run The New York Times are about what happened.
It’s amazing. It’s The Onion.
If a Democratic candidate who was given a 10% chance of winning by The New York Times had ended up winning– and winning red states as Trump won blue states– I don’t think that would have been the headline. I’ll just say again; the responsibility of journalists is to not report on their biases, it’s to go out and understand the country through the prism of the election and say why are people feeling the way they’re feeling.”
