Ted Cruz Takes New York Times To The Woodshed
Ted Cruz Takes New York Times To The Woodshed
Ted Cruz ripped into the New York Times today. He took the Old Gray Lady to the woodshed for their blatant Trump hatred and for going all in to further stoke racial tensions across the country.
“Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Sunday joined President Trump in lashing out at the New York Times over the paper’s coverage of the president.
“The NYT is destroying itself w/ Trump hatred. And it’s ultimately bad for freedom of the press when ‘journalists’ openly revel in being partisan propagandists. When our Nation is so tribalised that each side has their own ‘news’ & ‘facts’ and we don’t even talk to each other,” Cruz tweeted.
He called the paper a “propaganda outlet by liberals, for liberals.””
Cruz is correct. The New York Times is destroying itself from within all because Trump won and Hillary didn’t. Since the election, numerous news items printed by the Gray Lady have been found to be hiding facts, taking speeches and incidents completely out of context in order to fit the narrative, and fanning the flames of Trump Bad!
Just last week, as the New York Times was triumphantly announcing their 1619 Project, a contentious internal NY Times town hall became public. Multiple staffers asked the SAME question.
“Could you explain your decision not to more regularly use the word racist in reference to the president’s actions?” [Emphasis Added]
Read the entire town hall dialogue here. I promise you, it isn’t a waste of your time and will illustrate just how incredibly biased the New York Times is. Journalism for them means go after Trump, no holds barred. Facts? To hell with facts.
Baquet is all worried that overusing words like racist, lying, liar, racism will diffuse their meaning, so he wants the news room to be cautious in their use of those words. The news room was having none of it. Furthermore, that 1619 Project of theirs is one that is being urged upon school districts and the NY Times is here to tell us that the ONLY reason this country was founded was because of it’s racist past that started with the first slave ship arriving in 1619.
But sure! Let’s be careful to not overuse those ugly words shall we?
It’s also deeply cynical—at a time when racial tensions are raw, for the NYT to be deliberately stoking the fires of racial tension & hatred. Ironically, their approach is the obverse of their original headline (before they succumbed to the mob): “NYT Urges Racism Vs Unity.” https://t.co/Pyuzdhd1PP

It is indeed deeply cynical. Yet that is where the NY Times has gone. The Russia narrative isn’t working, so let’s pivot to racism! That’s the ticket!
There are some readers who do want this horrible kind of dialogue. In fact, someone got the memo early.
Yes, O’Rourke in his REBOOT the other day also called Trump a racist. However, it seems he’s adopted the NY Times narrative 100%. Here’s the relevant clip if you don’t want to watch all 30 minutes of his arm flailing pandering.
Our country was founded on racism—and is still racist today. In Arkansas, I said why I believe there’s no denying this reality; and why it’s on all of us to change it. pic.twitter.com/cHLKmCMGEB

Other “journalists” have gotten the memo as well. Salon is here to tell us that all Republicans and Trump are the ones that hate America. Why? Because Trump keeps pointing out all the crime problems in cities like Baltimore and Chicago. Cities that have a higher population of blacks. Hey Salon? Pointing out the high crime issues and the fact that those cities have been Democrat run for decades is NOT hatred of America. Pointing out the failures of those city governments is actual TRUTH, not hatred. Nice try at the narrative though.
Ted Cruz is correct. The New York Times would rather spend all their time in full frothed hatred of Trump instead of engaging in reporting the NEWS. There must always be a spin. The NY Times town hall has made it clear. ‘We are crafting and deciding what is news. You’d better like it…or else.’
What’s ironic is that all the liberal media outlets and Democrat Presidential candidates are running around parroting Fake News and telling the world that Republicans and Trump are the racist ones. Tell me again which party worked to free the slaves?
