A Nazi sympathizer at The New York Times. Listening to voices from Gaza. Plus: Larry Hogan, Shaun King, and more.
Most heterodox thinkers have witnessed the NY Times, WAPO, LA Times and other leading media organizations morph into mouthpieces for progressive radicals for years now.....they don't even try to hide it anymore. The good news is that they've been shedding readers in droves to the independent media/journalist landscape. TFP, Public & Racket News have been piling up new subscribers by the thousands month after month. These corporate media dinosaur's are finished......we're simply witnessing the final pathetic gasps from them.....good riddance.
Its also well known that so many of the academies are little more than overpriced progressive and marxist indoctrination centers. What will be interesting is to watch what happens when spigot of money is turned off to these institutions by doners who seem to be waking up to just how vile they have become.....especially post October 7th. Lets hope parents who send their children to these schools take notice too. 82% of professors at Harvard identify as "left" or "very left" politically, so I question if any of them can truly course correct if they don't root out the progressive activist administrators and professors who have poisoned these once great institutions. Perhaps we need some ideological affirmative action implemented at our universities.
I'm also watching Bari how many of the BLM and "In This House" yard sign posting progressives will actually move away from these ideologies. So far from my friends who lean left/progressive, the silence from them has been deafening. I just hope they have a reconsider before they step into the voting booth in 2024. I'm not terribly optimistic but you and your staff seem to think something is changing on the left. I guess we'll see.
Ending my Times subscription after years of accepting their crap reporting.
Bari, Lex Fridman did a long interview with Jared Kushner. One thing Jared said that struck me—-
There are Muslim and non Muslim countries that would invest in Gaza, clean it up, create jobs, give these people hope. But Hamas won’t let that happen. The extent of Hamas’ evil needs to be known.
I would love for you to give Jared a chance on Honestly. Your readers should know what that young man was able to achieve in the Middle East, and how Biden has blown it all up.
One more thing, Bari. I grew up in the day of tough love. When I screwed up, I got a serious lecture, making me reevaluate my decisions was my parents’ goal. Learn. Don’t do that again. Are you reevaluating your decisions? The team you’ve chosen? The votes you’ve made in the past? Seems so. Keep going.
Finally irrefutable truth that the NY Times is NOT the "paper of record" (it is the paper of Left Wing groupthink)
Bari, YOU and the Free Press are now "the paper of record"
As for the Detroit police trying to determine if the stabbing death of a synagogue official is a "hate crime", I say that if it were a Black clergyman who was killed there would be an outcry of white supremacy hate! It is OBVIOUS, given today's events, that the stabbing WAS a "hate crime". Unfortunately, she was a Jew, therefor it is a random act of violence.
The NYT sympathized with Hitler, and then Stalin, so why should we even be talking about them? As Andrew Klavan humorously calls them, "A former newspaper", the NYT has become an embarrassment to the ideals of journalism. And for those who still say, "Yes, but they are STILL getting some things right", I say, "Yes, and Mussolini got the trains running on time!"
Rashida is calling for an independent investigation. This woman is a shrew and dangerous.
My fave is now universities won’t comment on stuff in the news. No more statements. You know when Jews are involved they go silent.
Regarding universities: An old friend of mine runs a Jewish high school. When he received this year's email from the NYU Admissions department with whatever process details may have been updated, he responded with a long letter saying, basically, "Are you out of your 𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘥𝘴? None of our kids will be applying to your hothouse of antisemitism."
Where is the reporting from the 100 international journalists who were recently shown, by the Israeli government, horrific Hamas video of their atrocities? Will the NYT report on that? If so, I will only hear about it here...cancelled my subscription decades ago.
Will Jews ever see the light and stop voting against their own self interests? The Left is anti-freedom, anti-commerce, anti-law and order, anti-free speech, anti-Jew, and anti-every value Americas hold dear.
What will it take?
I’m up early enough to be one of the first to comment. That’s a huge personal accomplishment and since there is nothing - NOTHING - else to celebrate today, I’ll bask in the glory of waking up. There is a huge lawsuit against the media in our future. We can’t let this die. We’ve barely heard a word about the rabbi being murdered. Compare that to George Floyd and the countless other black people who have been killed. The Jews are the exception to ALL basic, human consideration it seems. When it’s possible, I want to move to Israel. I pray it still exists. America doesn’t feel safe for me anymore.
Bari, thank you for founding The Free Press! I frequently speak to others of the light that must be shown on the darkness of the world and TFP does this is on a daily basis. TFP is the light from a door cracked open, we, the people, need to push that door fully open and expose the darkness that lies behind it.
I am surprised that the Free Press appears so surprised by the New York Times recent Middle East reporting. We have just lived through a pandemic where the press acted like a PR agency for the government and corporate interests. Thousands of people were fired, a law was passed in California where doctors could lose their licenses for disagreeing with the government health decrees (most of which have turned out to be false), children were denied an open school while politicians like Newsom took their children to open private schools, colleges mandated liability free, novel vaccines that did not stop infection or transmission for an age group with little risk of death and zero long term testing, and so on. The public has been lied to almost continuously on Covid. Pfizer previously paid a record setting 2.3 billion dollar fine for fraud, yet was treated as a reliable source. I think the FP should have been way more skeptical in its reporting. Notice there is never any reporting on vaccine injuries or excess deaths which are astounding. When before have you seen twelve year olds dropping dead of heart attacks? The US is now poised to sign a WHO treaty that would give that flawed (to put it politely) organization supranational power to declare pandemics and set policy and mandate vaccination for its members. Bill Gates—vaccine profiteer—is the major funder. Maybe it is time to stop drinking the Kool-aid.
One of the hostages just released described the spider web of tunnels of hell she was brought to. Hamas has taken all the money, all the aid to build an infrastructure of hell. But useful leftists idiots blame Israel for what’s happening in Gaza.
Bari - at this point, no sane, rational American adult gives a fig what the New York Times writes or lies about. Just because that silly rag has been the bible of American - and particularly New York - cultural liberals for time immemorial doesn't change the fact that it's a fatuous and comical leftist propaganda organ and has been so since the Duranty lies covering up For Stalin's crimes in Ukraine and the police state he was running. I remember them swooning for Fidel, too. Do you honestly think their sympathies don't lie with Hamas and every other leftist guerilla group, even as they slaughter Jews?
