Have at it.

NY Times reporter Taylor Lorenz has equated criticism of her to "harassment" that has "destroyed my life."
The media don't think you should be allowed to even criticize them anymore.

The decision will allow the Project access to discovery which can be extremely difficult for a news organization. :)

Good article.


The control of major media by one political party is a dangerous threat to the country, a federal judge warned in a blistering dissent that called for courts to revisit libel laws that generally protect the press from being held liable for their reporting.

“It should be borne in mind that the first step taken by any potential authoritarian or dictatorial regime is to gain control of communications, particularly the delivery of news,” wrote Judge Laurence Silberman of the D.C. Circuit for the Court of Appeals. “It is fair to conclude, therefore, that one-party control of the press and media is a threat to a viable democracy.”

Silberman argued that it’s time for courts to revisit New York Times v. Sullivan, which has shaped press law in favor of media outlets for more than five decades. The New York Times and the Washington Post “are virtually Democratic Party broadsheets. And the news section of The Wall Street Journal leans in the same direction,” Judge Silberman wrote in his March 19 dissent.

He said that orientation also controls the Associated Press and most large papers in the country, including the Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, and Boston Globe. “Nearly all television—network and cable—is a Democratic Party trumpet,” Judge Silberman added.

This "news" story is completely slanted and misrepresents the facts and the writer just doesn't understand what is right or wrong.

Too bad, I used to, years ago get a lot of news from Reuters and the AP. Now they are almost completed infested as well.

“The goal: to play offense!” Wheeler stressed. “If we don’t fight, if we don’t refuse to back down, if we don’t play offense against the radical leftist assault on reality, we’ll lose.”
Sounds like more of that stupid news media. We saw the rights reality already, and thankfully it was put down peacefully.

One more time with a flourish. There is only 1 reality and the left is actively at war with it which won't end well for you guys cuz reality is undefeated.

Working in local media, it isn't near as bad as the national media. Some local reporters you can tell bias but nothing is as bad as the big ones (NBC, ABC, etc). I remember election night, the night after and everything, you could tell they were joyful that Trump was losing and they shouldn't be that way. They are that way on other political issues also and they always try to convey fear and sadness when they shouldn't. They put anything on air, if it is true or not, then quietly retract them.
