Nowadays, the New York Times isn’t even worth the trees that have been cut down to produce that garbage paper. They call themselves objective journalists, which is hilarious! CNN also considers themselves objective, which is equally hilarious. Those organizations are a lot of things, but objective is most definitely not one of them.
Unlike the New York Times, FreedomWire is openly conservative—we don’t pretend to be anything we’re not, and we don’t hold ourselves out as journalists. We use facts and credible sources to come to our conclusions, but we aren’t journalists…and that’s why we can confidently say that The New York Times isn’t a journalistic institution either. The main difference between our publications is that we admit this and they don’t.
Over at the Times’ headquarters, copious amounts of ink have been wasted writing pieces that whine incessantly about “The Big Bad Orange Man” in the White House. They’ve given themselves awards for bad reporting, fake news, and revisionist history, and NO ONE calls them out for it. But finally, someone within the paper’s ranks has resigned and has called out the Left-wing outlet on their bias.
The New York Times’ Bari Weiss is leaving the newspaper and she is going out with a walk-off home run. Weis was an editor and writer for the NYT opinion section. She is leaving because of “unlawful discrimination, hostile work environment, and constructive discharge.”
The scathing resignation is glorious! She exposes the inner workings of the hypocritical paper, where people are always lecturing President Trump and Republicans about their bad behavior when they need look no further than their own newsroom to see these bad deeds for themselves.
The following is a portion of the resignation letter written by Bari Weiss. Enjoy:
“My own forays into ‘Wrongthink’ have made me the subject of constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views. They have called me a Nazi and a racist; I have learned to brush off comments about how I’m ‘writing about the Jews again.’ Several colleagues perceived to be friendly with me were badgered by coworkers.
My work and my character are openly demeaned on company-wide Slack channels where masthead editors regularly weigh in. There, some coworkers insist I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly ‘inclusive’ one, while others post ax emojis next to my name. Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action. They never are…
But the truth is that intellectual curiosity—let alone risk-taking—is now a liability at The Times. Why edit something challenging to our readers, or write something bold only to go through the numbing process of making it ideologically kosher, when we can assure ourselves of job security (and clicks) by publishing our 4000th op-ed arguing that Donald Trump is a unique danger to the country and the world? And so self-censorship has become the norm.”
Slow clap for Ms. Weiss…
Finally, someone is willing to call out the Fake News industry for what it is. Hopefully, more people will follow Weiss’ example in the future.
