The New York Times got busted twice this past weekend for publishing not one but two cases of fake news. In the first piece, writer Allan Rappeport tried to push the “Trump is a racist” narrative by bemoaning the allegedly needless delay of introducing the Harriet Tubman $20 bill due to racist motives complete with an “anonymous” source. Another story, dubbed “a virtual act of treason” by President Trump, alleged that the U.S. is escalating its online attacks against Russia’s power grid. Going as far back as Nixon, the Left media play the hapless tools of the DNC in an effort to take down whoever is the highest-ranking Republican.
Here’s more from American Thinker…
The “fake news” label for the New York Times is far more accurate and damaging to it than President Trump’s habitual label of “failing New York Times.” For one thing, there’s a genuine market niche for Trump hatred that has allowed the paper to expand its digital subscription roll and earn some real money. But the New York Times is failing at its original mission of being a trustworthy newspaper. The paper continues to sacrifice its credibility on the altar of “the narrative” – the leftist dogma that Donald Trump is: racist, sexist, homophobic, antisemitic, stupid, crude, vulgar, unpopular, dangerous, and any other negative human characteristic you could imagine.
That shrinking credibility is the Achilles Heel. Once people start dismissing anti-Trump news from the Times as risible because they know the paper has no scruples, its power is gone.
