Nothing on Terry Bean by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 If real estate mogul and deep-pocketed White House donor Terry Bean were a Republican, he'd be a household name by now. Bean's face would be splashed all over the covers of grocery-stand newsweeklies. The garrulous hostesses of ABC's "The View" would be haranguing the... Read More
The New York Times' war on gun-owning rape victims by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 Nasty New York Times editorial writer David Firestone pretends to care about campaign scare-mongering. But what he and his elitist ilk really fear are independent-thinking women who have dared to exercise their First Amendment powers to defend their Second... Read More
(Photoshop via Doug Ross) Eddie Haskell Brooks by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 New York Times columnist David Brooks is the Eddie Haskell of the Fourth Estate. Like the two-faced sycophant in "Leave It to Beaver," Brooks indulges in excessive politeness while currying favor with political authority. He prides himself on an oily semblance... Read More
Journo-tools For Obama by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Can we stop calling the hosts of the presidential debates "moderators"? They're left-erators. It's time for the old media godfathers to end the pretense that they're fair and neutral observers of the American political scene. And it's time for the GOP to stop perpetuating these... Read More
Via JWF, the lapdog media admits that its cadre of real reporters allow the Obama press staff to vet and rewrite their, um, work. Jim Messina's profanity gets whitewashed out. David Axelrod's blowhardiness gets tightened up. And quotes fed by anonymous officials are now published at unprecedented "new levels." The Fishwrap of Record meekly acknowledges... Read More
More creepy Occupy Wall Street-related news from, believe it or not, the Fishwrap of Record. We need not imagine how much more damning the headlines would have been if this had been a Tea Party event instead of an major Occupier protest. Let's hope the family of Sarah Fox is able to find resolution and... Read More
Sigh. Let me say that again: Siiiiiiiiiiiiiigh. If you were unfortunate enough to watch Saturday night's GOP debate in New Hampshire, you saw a pageant of feckless non-Romneys fail to step up to the plate and forcefully challenge Mitt Romney's presumptive claim to the GOP presidential nomination. Newt Gingrich, who has spent the last week... Read More
People make honest mistakes. When right-leaning people make them, Soros-funded Media Matters turns it into Apocalypse Now and an opportunity to discredit all of conservatism. But when liberal journos err, it's like the proverbial trees falling in the forest. Does anybody hear the muffled sound? Last night while I was on Twitter, a few left-leaning... Read More
Will the New York Times ombudsman respond to this serious charge from a fellow mainstream journalist -- or will it be whitewashed away? David Newhouse, editor of the Patriot-News, has blown the whistle on the Fishwrap of Record's reckless disclosure of identifying details about one of Penn State accused child predator/rapist Jerry Sandusky's victims: Newhouse's... Read More
(Photoshop via Doug Ross) The last time I blogged about David Brooks's bloviations, I opened by asking: "How much of a tool is New York Times columnist David Brooks?" Brooks answers the question himself in his latest column: You'll recall -- I do, anyway -- that Brooks admitted last October that President Obama told him... Read More
The editor of the New York Times just got religion: He thinks it’s time to ask GOP presidential candidates “tougher questions about faith.” Oh, brother, where wast thou in 2008? The Fishwrap of Record led the whitewashing of Barack Obama's wacky black liberation theology pals and freaky-deaky Chicago pastors. Now, the skews-paper is ready to... Read More
Just awful. Let's hope the missing journalists are indeed in Libyan government custody and will be released safely ASAP. My heart goes out to the families. Our family knows the kind of hell they are going through right now. Praying for a safe return:
My column today spotlights the left-wing/New York Times alliance against Chick-Fil-A. Anti-corporate/anti-Christian blogs + MSM advocacy journalism = job-sabotaging smear machine. Chick-Fil-A isn't the only one in the restaurant industry targeted by the progressive mob over the past month. The SEIU has been waging open-borders attacks on restaurant chain Chipotle simply because the company complied... Read More
(Image credit: PTG, 2006 NYT blabbermouths photoshop contest 2006) Last week, it was the Washington Post spilling the beans on the nation's post-9/11 top-secret infrastructure. Today, it's the NYTimes dutifully splashing vengeful Wikileaks' massive document dump on our Afghanistan military strategy. The Times tries not to break its collective arm patting itself on the back... Read More
Well, it's good to see the New York Times finally paying attention to Democrats who tell bogus war stories: Here's video of Blumenthal saying he served in Vietnam. And here's video of him saying he didn't: What a total crapweasel. As this blog has long reported, the Left has had repeated issues with telling the... Read More
This is Charles Blow. Blow is an African-American columnist for the New York Times. He flew down to the Dallas Tea Party to see what he could see. He saw what he wanted to see and he might as well have used the new smear term from Tea Party-bashers that I noted last week: "Tea... Read More
The AJC's Cynthia Tucker blogged today about a testy exchange we had last summer on ABC's "This Week" regarding government unemployment benefits and the effect that endless extensions have on reducing the incentive to seek a job. Once again, she mistakes standard economic arguments for moral judgments: "Does the right really believe the unemployed are... Read More
Longtime readers know that fearless young conservative firebrand Jason Mattera has been a great friend of mine and of Hot Air's for years. You also know from his countless videos that he's got a Brooklyn accent thickah than an old-growth redwood tree. Yesterday, he gave a rousing, raucous speech at CPAC in Washington, D.C. To...

So, apparently a top Taliban commander has been captured in a joint secret operation by Pakistan and the U.S. He is apparently a big, big fish and reportedly is being interrogated by officials from both countries: The commander, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, is an Afghan described by American officials as the most significant Taliban figure...

(Photoshop via Doug Ross) New York Times columnist David Brooks will never let an opportunity pass to remind you that he is an intellectual and you are a grimy member of the unwashed masses. His column today pays a back-handed tribute to the success of the Tea Party movement...while bemoaning the decline of influence among... Read More
The sky is falling.
Well, hell, Nick Kristof got away with it. Why not play it some more? On the heels of Kristof's bogus health care horror story accusing Demcare opponents of letting Uninsured Americans Die (never mind that his poster child was already insured and getting treatment), more liberals in the media are playing the Murder Card. Here's... Read More
White Christmas.
Yesterday, the sanctimonious liberal elites at the New York Times publishes a separate but equal gift guide for people "of color." It began: "Somali fashion, do-it-yourself henna kits, children's books that draw inspiration from the lives of Barack Obama and Sonia Sotomayor: it's not hard to find gifts created for and by people of color...

Scroll for updates...Kristof non-responds...holes remain... Today, I did something that Pulitzer Prize-winning NYTimes columnist Nick Kristof apparently didn't do: I talked to a spokesman at the Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, Oregon. I called them up after OHSU's Dr. Johnny Delashaw left a comment about Kristof's piece spotlighting the horrible plight of John Brodniak,... Read More
Holes.
In response to the NYTimes' crappiest column on Obamacare ever, which I dissected earlier today, a neurologist in Oregon has posted the following noteworthy and newsworthy comment on columnist Nick Kristof's blog: And from another commenter friendly to Kristof who asks more pertinent policy questions than Kristof d
See update: Brodniak sob story debunked! Nick Kristof is the recipient of not one, but two Pulitzer Prizes for journalism. He has traveled the world, writes critically acclaimed books, and counts Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie among his glamorous friends. He is also the author of what may quite possibly be the crappiest New York... Read More
Tough times at the NYTimes: October 19, 2009 , 2:49 pm Times Says It Will Cut 100 Newsroom Jobs By Richard Perez-Pena The New York Times plans to eliminate 100 newsroom jobs – about 8 percent of the total – by year’s end, offering buyouts to union and non-union employees, and resorting to layoffs if...

Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports tonight that the ACORN/Rathke embezzlement sum was $5 million, not the widely cited $1 million figure admitted publicly to date by the left-wing racketeering group. But guess what? The figure is not new -- and it is not news to the whitewashers at the New York... Read More
"Insufficient tuned-in-ness."
Pity the New York Times. Even when the Fishwrap of Record is admitting how out of touch it is, its editors still can't get the story right. Hapless ombudsman Clark Hoyt writes in his Sunday column that his paper was guilty of unnecessarily politicizing a legitimate breaking story and suffering "slow reflexes:" ON Sept. 12,... Read More
Who said it: "The real story to all this is how these myriad entities allow them to shuffle money around so much that no...
The Fishwrap of Record has finally seen fit to tell its readers about the latest ACORN scandals (the San Bernardino tapes, which don't get a mention, are beyond belief). True to form, the New York Times commits grievous sins of omission that whitewash the paper's own role in deliberately covering up ACORN's illicit activities before... Read More
Just got the news from Regnery this afternoon: Culture of Corruption is #1 on the New York Times best-seller list for the 5th week in a row. Bottomless thanks again to all of you who have bought the book, shared it, spread the word, and used it as a resource to create real Hope and... Read More
The NYTimes has a round-up of blog posts decrying Jenna Bush's new job at the Today Show and assailing nepotism run amok in the world of political families. Can you spot the missing words? One starts with "K" and ends with "Y." And rhymes with "TENNEDY." Also missing: A word that starts with "B" and... Read More
Torrid.
David Brooks caught swamp fever a long time ago -- and I've been chronicling it for the past five years. But his symptoms have grown most acute in the Age of Obama. Last fall, his ejaculations about Obama's "achievatrons" inspired the nausea-inducing introduction to Culture of Corruption. Get out another airsickness bag. The New Republic... Read More
Mark Levin held the #1 spot on the NYTimes best-seller list for 12 weeks this summer. Culture of Corruption has held the top spot for the past 3 weeks. Glenn Beck's latest book has topped the paperback non-fiction list for 9 weeks. The latest broadside against Obama from Dick Morris and Eileen McGann has also... Read More
Would Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales have done this for Fox News or the Washington Times? And if he had/has, wouldn't the New York Times editorial page blast him for colluding to suppress information from the public? Read the whole NYTimes' piece. Note especially how a Times editor used Wikipedia (and the Times' own website) to... Read More
I am glad New York Times reporter David Rohde is safe. But I have questions. Is the safety of journalists more important than the safety of our military? The safety of our homeland? From September 11, 2001 to the present, the terror-tipping blabbermouths of the New York Times have repeatedly undermined national security by disclosing... Read More
Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti My syndicated column today takes another whack at the New York Times. Outside of the blogosphere and Fox News, the Fishwrap of Record's admission that it spiked an election eve story on the possible illegal coordination between the Obama campaign and ACORN's canvassing arm, Project Vote, has gotten zero scrutiny. Fortunately,... Read More
ObamACORN and the Fishwrap of Record.
NYTimes editor Bill Keller said this in December 2007. Mark these words: ...we are agnostic as to where a story may lead; we do not go into a story with an agenda or a pre-conceived notion. We do not manipulate or hide facts to advance an agenda. We strive to preserve our independence from political... Read More
Drool Bucket Award.
And now, for our Drool Bucket of the Day Award. Almost gave it to the SWAGGA crew at CNN. But this one inched them out. He asked the moronic question about what has "enchanted" President Obama the most about being in the White House. He could have, I dunno, pressed Obama for details about how... Read More
The Fishwrap Rescue and Recovery Act of 2009.
October 23, 2008: "New York Times bonds near junk territory...Anyone smelling a bailout plea coming on?" November 11, 2008: "The newspaper bailout countdown clock: I think it’s time to start the newspaper bailout countdown clock. A few weeks ago, I joked that it wouldn’t be long until the junky New York Times started crawling to... Read More
That's the headline in the NYTimes today: "Administration Is Open to Taxing Health Benefits." To which one naturally responds: What isn't the Administration Open to Taxing?
In in its announcement of the hiring of Ross G. Douthat as resident conservative op-ed contributor, the New York Times makes explicit its employment critieria for any pundit to the right of Dennis Kucinich: You must "steer away from partisanship...or doctrine." You must "frequently criticize Republicans." Show a "concern for income equality." And be a... Read More
Pathos. (Photo credit: Doug...
I've reminded you before of NYTimes' columnist David Brooks' boneheaded Ivy League ejaculations about the Obama administration. Now, the once-enamored Kool-Aid drinker admits his cult leader is not the man he knew: What an unbelievable waste of time and real estate is David Brooks. It's profane. Which is why Robert Stacy McCain's expletive-filled smackdown is... Read More
The credentialed professionals at the Fishwrap of Record fall for a blindingly obvious hoax. All the dupes fit to print.
Not fit to print.
Don't read the New York Times if you want to know the full truth about Commerce Secretary nominee Gary Locke. The paper "reports:" What wasn't fit to print in the fishwrap of record: The Chinagate/Buddhist temple cash skeletons in Gary Locke’s closet And yet more reasons Gary Locke is another Obama mispick
Fidel Castro gives the American media two thumbs up for clueless coverage and wimpy whitewashing of the 50th anniversary of the Cuban revolution. Henry Louis Gomez at the indispensable Babalu blog (which was recently honored by the White House) provides a handy score card to help you grade the MSM's Cuban revolution pieces. The AP... Read More
I launched the Newspaper Bailout Countdown Clock on Nov. 11, reported on Connecticut's move to prop up ailing dead-tree dailies on Dec. 1, and followed up with a column on the coming government rescues for the MSM on Dec. 3. And now, here comes Reuters, heralding the new year with this: Government aid could save... Read More
The Fishwrap of Record's bonds and reputation are in the tank. What to do? Sell, sell, sell! Maybe if they had been spending more on letters editors than on baseball, they wouldn't have gotten punked. The New York Times Co., strapped for cash and facing shrinking revenue, is reportedly seeking to sell its stake in... Read More
C'est la vie.
They both got punked by fake Frenchmen. When Sarah Palin got punked, of course, she was universally mocked by the Left. Now that the Fishwrap of Record has admitted falling for a fake French prank, will they be ridiculed by Jon Stewart, the late-night comedians, and, um, the vicious commenters at the NYTimes.com? From the... Read More
I think it's time to start the newspaper bailout countdown clock. A few weeks ago, I joked that it wouldn't be long until the junky New York Times started crawling to the government for a handout. Now, with the Fed waving its magic wand and redefining American Express as a "bank holding company," with insurers... Read More
