#FakeNews NYT has admitted its bias

Article:


The New York Times(NYT) published this in August 2016:

If you’re a working journalist and you believe that Donald J. Trump is a demagogue playing to the nation’s worst racist and nationalistic tendencies, that he cozies up to anti-American dictators and that he would be dangerous with control of the United States nuclear codes, how the heck are you supposed to cover him?

Because if you believe all of those things, you have to throw out the textbook American journalism has been using for the better part of the past half-century, if not longer, and approach it in a way you’ve never approached anything in your career. If you view a Trump presidency as something that’s potentially dangerous, then your reporting is going to reflect that. You would move closer than you’ve ever been to being oppositional.


The title of the article is “Trump Is Testing the Norms of Objectivity in Journalism”. The obvious question is how can Trump have anything to do with objective journalism? After all an objective journalist will publish every horrible thing about Trump that they can dig up. If there is dirt on Trump, objective journalists will publish it without having to abandon their objectivity.

But what the NYT is really saying is that journalists should not restrict themselves to publishing the truth or that journalists should feel no obligation to publish stories that reflect well on Trump.

Essentially the NYT is saying that the purpose of journalism isn’t to inform the people and let the people decide, the way the Constitution envisions things, but to ensure that the people agree with what journalists want even if that means that journalists have to lie or conceal the truth.

What the NYT did was declare that it was no longer an news source but a propaganda machine whose objective was defeating Trump not giving the people the truth and letting us decide.

It’s important to dredge this up to remind ourselves that the #FakeNews media has already publicly admitted that they are nothing more than the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party.

Note that the author Jim Rutenberg doesn’t say if a reporter finds evidence that Trump is any of these horrible things but that if a reporter “feels” Trump is any of those things. The NYT is saying that truth is irrelevant reporting is not based on the facts reporters find but on the objective reporters want to achieve.

They are admitting that they are biased liars who are concerned with preventing the people from electing anyone that they, the reporters, don’t approve of. They’re fascists.

Nothing they produce can be trusted. They’re no different than the old Pravda newspaper run by the Soviet Union.

Sound like the media is an "ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE" just like Trump said, if they journalists 'feel' differently than the will of the people when they elected Trump.

Yup. Journalists are enemies when they CLAIM to be reporting facts but are only stating their own feelings, desires, opinions, and goals.

If they ADMITTED that’s what they’re doing, then fine, no problem. Everyone’s entitled to their opinion and interpretation. And then the presentation would be honest.

But they try to deceive and mislead and bear false witness and make accusations without proof. That’s why they’re people’s enemies.
