How a Business Should Be Run According To The New York Times

 

Nothing offends the sensibilities of the New York Times more than the idea of someone getting rich. As such, we see a continuing stream of stories like this one about Silicon Valley founders that, in the Times’s prim and stuffy language, raise “concerns about whether these start-ups and their investors operate under a sufficient number of […]

Why Wasn’t There A Confederate Flag On Their Van?

 

If only the Islamic terrorists that struck Barcelona last week had mounted a Confederate flag on the white Fiat van they used to slaughter fifteen innocent people, including a seven-year-old boy from the UK and a 42-year-old American man on his first trip to Europe.  We might be seeing the formation of a modern day […]

For the New York Times Some Cultures Are More Equal Than Others

 

Front page of the New York Times, top of the app screen “Wednesday Briefing” under the rubric of “Here’s what you need to know to start your day”: New York Today: Advice for Fasting Ramadan advice. Of course. Do you suppose next spring the Times will do Christians a solid by running an article about what […]

Why the Harvard Law Review Is Passé

 

Yesterday there was another racial circle jerk at The New York Times as the paper of record published a story that went beyond merely informing readers that The Harvard Law Review has elected its first black woman president to ask “why did it take so long?” Many will recall that the prestigious 130-year-old publication elected […]

The Transgender Honey Badger!

 

Yesterday, the New York Times, which has recently (and incessantly) proclaimed its sacred role as an arbiter of truth in an age of Trumpian mendacity, ran a story about a family who keep a honey badger in their small Brooklyn Heights apartment. This piece went on to describe the unorthodox (and dangerous) family pet as “an […]

How My White Privilege Depression Was Cured

 

This morning, when I woke, I felt that old familiar sting of remorse–like a bad hangover–at my possession of an insufficient amount of melanin in my skin and all the evil manifestations of this disgraceful and unfortunate condition (both in myself and in my family members). Then I went to the New York Times website […]

Palestinian Parliament Fake Photo

 

Close observers of the Israeli-Arab conflict are accustomed to biased reporting in the elite media that downplays Arab incitements to violence and attacks on Israel while exaggerating the suffering of the “Palestinians.” However, even to the more jaded students of the Middle East, some examples of “fake news” masquerading as objectivity still have the ability […]

France’s Sad Politics

 

It’s hard to feel optimistic about the future of France when considering the current slate of candidates for the presidential election this spring. Arguably Francois Fillon is the best candidate as he would attempt to rein in the state, loosen labor laws, and jettison the wealth tax. But it’s unclear that he would take the […]

Maxine Waters Is Funny!

 

Yesterday, hilarious Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters informed a crestfallen nation that she would not attend the Trump inauguration saying “I don’t honor him, I don’t respect him, and I don’t want to be involved with him.” One would be inclined to take Waters seriously except for the fact that she has “honored and respected” Cuba’s […]

Lewis’ District Is Rather Sad

 

Throughout the years Rep. John Lewis has repeatedly leveled scurrilous accusations against Republicans who might resist the liberal agenda. And all along, Lewis has been shielded from retaliatory criticism by both his race and his 1960’s record of civil rights activism. Until now. This past week began Lewis grandstanding at the Jeff Sessions confirmation hearings […]
