New York Times Employees Tie Paper's Future to Racism [KT]

Kaboom2.jpg

This gets you zero intersectionality points, racist!

Everyone saw you mention milk, cow-hater!

It used to be when someone said "white supremacy" I'd think "Oh, like the KKK" but now I think "Oh, like breakfast cereal."
Frank J. Fleming

The New York Times reveals its new vision

The basics are noted at Powerline:

Someone at the New York Times recorded an employee "town hall" with editor Dean Baquet and turned it over to Slate. Ashley Feinberg has posted a "lightly edited and condensed" transcript of the 75 meeting here. Byron York distills the essence in the tweet below. Randall McMurphy, call your office.

York:

Did it sometimes seem like the New York Times' entire focus was Trump-Russia? Like it built its newsroom around one story? Now, top editor says it did just that. But after Mueller report, paper has had to retool. New focus? Trump racism.

The Powerline post also links a piece by York dated today:

The town hall was spurred by angry reaction, both inside and outside the Times, to a headline that many on the Left faulted for being insufficiently anti-Trump. After the El Paso shootings, when the president denounced white supremacy, the Times published a page-one story with the heading, "Trump Urges Unity Vs. Racism."

"I think one of the reasons people have such a problem with a headline like this ... is because they care so much," one staffer said to Baquet. "And they depend on the New York Times. They are depending on us to keep kicking down the doors and getting through, because they need that right now. It's a very scary time."

Baquet vowed a transition to a new "vision" for the paper for the next two years. . . "How do we write about race in a thoughtful way, something we haven't done in a large way in a long time? That, to me, is the vision for coverage. You all are going to have to help us shape that vision. But I think that's what we're going to have to do for the rest of the next two years."

So basically, that meeting was called because the New York Times accidentally told the truth in a headline.

York also noted about the meeting that "no one could be surprised that a recording of it leaked, possibly by Times employees who want to push Baquet in an even more anti-Trump direction."

As someone noted in the comments at Powerline, The Times is making an extraordinarily valuable campaign contribution to the Democrats.

Brit Hume recounted a little history in reaction to York's piece:

Former executive Times editor Abe Rosenthal told me many years ago, he wanted it to be said of him: "He kept the paper straight."
Indeed, those words are on his gravestone. As the story . . . makes clear, playing it straight is not the Times' mission now.

Mollie Hemingway has some observations

Mollie Hemingway did a good job of countering much of the Russia Media Hoax as it unfolded. She has some fun with the NYT "vision" meeting reported at Slate, and makes some good observations:

"I'm going to be really honest. I actually don't think we can make a whole lot more mistakes," said executive editor Dean Baquet.

Hemingway:

I sort of assumed they weren't so stupid as to actually believe the Russia collusion hoax as much as running a journalistic resistance operation pretending they did. But saying they were caught "flat-footed" by implosion of Russia collusion story intrigues me ...

They were chief peddlers of a dangerously false Russia collusion narrative for years. It blew up in their faces. It was a humiliating failure. Baquet's introspection: "We won two Pulitzer Prizes covering that story. And I think we covered that story better than anybody else."

They covered it better than anybody else. Won two Pulitzers. And it was all a hoax.

So, maybe there is a White Supremacy Hoax. too!

Remember the calls to fire Tucker Carlson when he said that the growing concerns over white supremacy were a hoax? Well, earlier this week Angelo Codevilla said the same thing. Along with this:

A generation of domestic peace is increasingly difficult to imagine.

Just yesterday, "the deplorables" were to be deplored because they were "racist, sexist, homophobic," clingers to "God and guns," and Russian dupes to boot. Today, the agility and unanimity with which our politicians and media--heck, the ruling class--have shifted to indicting roughly 72 percent of the population as white supremacists, likely violent, would fill with envy their homologues in China, Cuba, North Korea, and other tyrannical places. By comparison, Joseph Goebbels had sloppy message discipline. Not even the Soviets in their salad days were so "on message!"

I imagine that the New York Times is going to be "on message". But you might want to read the whole thing. Some excerpts:

One may suppose that our ruling class merely intends to energize its constituencies and cower the opposition in the 2020 elections. But this is no game. Their proposals would impose pre-punishment for pre-crimes on persons accused or "suspected" of being a "white supremacist." By whom? On the basis of what?

In practice, a "white supremacist" is anyone whom anyone in power dislikes enough to so label him. Who would accept being outlawed at will? Our ruling class plays with matches in a house drenched in gasoline.

Some creepy possibilities concerning "red flag" laws and such follow.

In January 2012, the Department of Homeland Security, in cooperation with the University of Maryland, published a study titled "Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States, 1979-2008." It classified persons who it judged to be "suspicious of centralized federal authority" and "reverent of individual liberty" as "extreme right wing terrorists." . . . Skeptical of the government? You're a potential terrorist.

In July 2012, Colonel Kevin Benson of the U.S. Army's University of Foreign Military and Cultural Studies at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and Jennifer Weber of the University of Kansas, published an article in the Small Wars Journal titled "Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A 'Vision' of the Future." Benson and Weber argued that the U.S. Army should prepare itself for contingencies such as "extremist militia motivated by the goals of the 'tea party' movement" seizing a small town. They contend, moreover, that Army's "Operating Concept, 2016-2028" obliges "the military to execute without pause and as professionally as if it were acting overseas."

"Extremist militia motivated by the goals of the 'tea party'? Taking over a small town? How does this even make sense from an "Tea Party" point of view?

The Ruling Class is really sincere about the importance of the Ruling Class, isn't it?

But I'll put the first bet down, as to the TV/MSN yappers all closing ranks around the NYT in order to protect their Oracle.

Story will be bent, altered, folded, mutilated, spindled, stapled and stained into un-recognizability, before the public even knows there *was* a story to begin with.

41 The meeting was pathetic and wretched. The editor is a hack who really believed the Trump Russia story wholeheartedly, not based on the information at hand, but the need for it to be true. Now that its been revealed to have been complete nonsense, there's no shame, only bragging that they won two pulitzers for their bogus reporting on a lie, and that they didn't get it as wrong as some other sources.

And now they've stated on record and as official policy to simply go nuts on white supremacism and racism as their go-to narrative. And the others in that discussion all want to go even more nuts, while the leftist hack editor is the moderate in the room, relatively speaking.

Nowhere in this discussion was "maybe we should gather information and report it accurately without attempting any editorial spin or predetermined narrative," no professionalism, no attempt at simply being a news organization.

These newspapers cannot die fast enough. They do almost not reporting or gathering facts. They do almost no investigation or original writing. They simply gather tips and reprint press releases and take leaks and follow trending on social media platforms.

74 White Supremacy - the extremist, racist belief that white people should not be exterminated.


Racism - the extremist belief that men should be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin.


Diversity - no straight, white people

76 Was not allowed sugar cereal as a kid all Cheerios all the time

We very rarely would get any, usually at summer camps in those little boxes with wax lining and only enough cereal to feed a chipmunk.

The reason was partly "that's too much sugar" but mostly "those cereals cost 50% more and we can't afford them." When the choice was between Life and generic Cheerios, you got the generic Cheerios. And back then it was generic: the black and white packaging with the stars that said "CEREAL"

89 At some time, it would be good if someone in law enforcement or the GOP
at least would point this out and look into it. How badly the news
media acts as in-kind contributors to the Democratic Party
***


It is a many layered problem.


Some people that would otherwise be on "our side" are bought off, some blackmailed*, and some look at what happened to Scalise and Rand Paul and keep their heads down.


As a golden example of the blackmail, look back to the 90s.


Newt had tried to impeach Clinton - so the FNM destroys him. Newt's chosen successor likewise got destroyed by the FNM.

Next on deck? Dennis Hastert. Who is a pedophile. Which the FNM knew at the time but kept hidden.

So they destroyed the two people who would have been useful to the conservative movement and allowed someone they could blackmail to lead the Republicans. And as soon as Hastert came to power the Republicans stopped doing anything of note in the House. What a coincidence huh?

90 "In practice, a "white supremacist" is anyone whom anyone in power dislikes enough to so label him."

Meaning it doesn't matter who you disavow. If you aren't joining the Two Minutes' Hate against the heritage population of this country, you could disavow John Kasich and still be labeled a terrorist threat.

"They contend, moreover, that Army's "Operating Concept, 2016-2028" obliges "the military to execute without pause and as professionally as if it were acting overseas.""

Let that one sink in. And keep in mind that Obama had eight years to appoint flag and general officers, and promote other grades, and at least 134 were relieved while he was in office.

They're desperate. Like the carnival-goer playing Razzle Dazzle, they're so close to winning that they're already making plans for their prize.

They were like this around 1970, so close to final victory, the utter transformation of American society but they failed. They got this way again around 2004, but by the time they were supposed to finally have it all they got Trump instead.

It will happen again, with even more desperation. I suspect that the jig will be up after their third failure a couple-few generations from now. Before that happens, though, I would expect them to try anything and everything. Those will be truly scary times.

cuz they're anti-communist.

160 imo there is not enough separation between the plotters of the Russia/Trump BigLie ... and the FBI/CIA top dogs of the time (and maybe still) ... and the MSM heads (prominently NYT) ... and certainly much of the Obama administration.


So it is impossible to say "the MSM was tricked" or they wanted to believe, or whatever. They are not distinct entities, they are one big denomination at the least, and their heads conspire together (many are married/family). At the highest level, they are a true global crime syndicate, like Hydra in the sci-fi version.


The DNC coordinated messaging goes straight to the MSM, even to the point of using the phrase of the week to be more effective in brainwashing the public (walls closing in, Trump'sRacism, etc). It is engineered psychological warfare, extended from the Soviet days. (and more and more evidence shows it has been the mafia and commies inside from the get go).

It's nice to imagine actual consequences for Antifa criminals, but if, hypothetically, Portland cracks down on riots by selectively charging only non-commies with felonies, and declares itself a sanctuary city for anti-American terrorists, what's their exposure? Nothing.

There's a great documentary on Bowie on Showtime, I just saw it again this morning.

It's about the early years before he was really Bowie, just trying everything he could, mime, multimedia, songwriting, and he just wasn't breaking through.

Too odd, I guess. The funny thing is that the early songs before he was Bowie the Genius are still pure Bowie, people just couldn't see it yet.

The doc ends with the retirement of the Ziggy Stardust character. I saw him in '76 and was thinking I'd missed the peak of his superstardom. Turned out he never made money until Let's Dance in '82 or '83.

Posted by: Bandersnatch at August 17, 2019 12:20 PM (fuK7c)

182 I dimly recall a TV movie where Dom DeLuise played, I think, your everyday party clown for rent who witnessed a robbery committed by a person of color wearing white makeup, or vice versa. Anyway, he insisted to the cops that the perp had different bone structure than the color would indicate. He naturally turned out to be correct. Maybe the film was called Bone Profiling, dunno. Point is, the Kaboom clown was definitely white. And gay.

It's worse than that. You will be able to rely on extremist groups like Antifa, Bloods, and communist groups if you are a leftist and the white nationalists and similar extremist groups if you are on the right. This is why they emerge and grow because groups like the Oathkeepers, the GOP, the police are absent and weak willed.

And many people will be caught in the middle. Being left to your own would be a blessing but it isn't likely.

Violence always leads to increases in power to such groups because they have the will to act while so many in the center are lost in self doubt. They don't always take power but they do grow in strength and are increasingly seen as viable alternatives.

205 Because unlike Freud who seems to have felt that the meaning of life was in finding pleasure,I'd go with Victor Frankl's view that people find meaning from having meaning/purpose in life. I'd go with Frankl because he could say this after being in two or three concentration camps and was a good and decent man. I think Freud was a weirdo and wrong in a number of ways. So I wouldn't pray that somebody gets laid-which seems to be related simply to pleasure-I pray that they find meaning in relationships and certainly having a happy sexual relationship is a part of that for people in intimate relationships but I don't think getting laid should be the goal because you could go to a prostitute for that without having a meaningful relationship.

A lot of my prayers have to do with people finding healing spiritually, emotionally, or physically or mentally..

But bad idea or not, if you say you're going to show up for the fight, you have to show up. I can't see that Oath Keepers are anything but the punchline to an unfunny joke now, and forever. A humiliating climbdown, demoralizing to the side they say they are on.

237 Its not often I hear someone cover Metallica and do it well, but I think I even like this version better
\


Metallica's music is so technically sound and innovative that it can be transposed to other styles and still retain its force.

There are so many elements of classical music that they based their phrasing and timing on as well. Wagner, Beethoven, deBussy. I will go to a classical performance and hear the portions that Metallica has borrowed. It's haunting. Those timeless portions make their music more easily converted to other styles.

One way of looking at it is that God doesn't "permit" evil - Satan is The Great Deceiver. God gives us free will to choose, and many choose unwisely.
If you think about the Ten Commandments as a pathway to maximize happiness, you can see how evil finds ways to motivate us to ignore them. Take envy, for example. How much unhappiness is caused by that alone?
And look at our politicians. How they strive to create unhappiness among us.

279 Over One Million Views Bill Clinton Epstein #Epstein - YouTube

-
Grist for the rumor mill:

Convicted pedophile and alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein reportedly had a $100,000 cement truck rushed to his mansion in the Virgin Islands late last year, just days before a bombshell report was published by the Miami Herald which ultimately led to his arrest.

Epstein "got the Carmix 5.5 XL self-loading concrete mixer delivered to Little St. James on November 7 last year," the Daily Mail reported. "Epstein was in such a hurry that he paid for the machine up front so it would arrive sooner - even though it meant being responsible if it got damaged in transit."

The timeline of events is important here, especially when taking into consideration other items that Epstein shipped to his other residences at times when he was facing legal troubles.

. . . .

"Epstein shipped a shredder from the U.S. Virgin Islands to his Palm Beach home in July 2008, shortly after reaching a non-prosecution agreement with then-U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta, maritime records show," The Intercept reported. "Then, in March of this year, shortly after a Florida federal judge invalidated that agreement, Epstein shipped a tile and carpet extractor from the Virgin Islands to his Manhattan townhouse, the records show."

I used to blame G-d for all the evil in the world. Then it dawned on me
that G-d didn't create evil. Humanity created evil. God only gave us
free will where we could choose to be evil or to be good.

Sadly the worst evil is caused by humanity doing neither and just being mediocre.

Mediocrity kills more surely than any evil you can dream up.

A (deliberately?) misleading headline. Medical examiners cannot rule something a suicide. They can only rule that the wounds are consistent with suicide. They aren't detectives, they don't build a case or go over the crime scene (TV shows notwithstanding). All they do is examine the body and deliver a conclusion based on what the damage and chemistry tell them.

And speaking about that [also doesn't much interest me], of all things, during an oral history interview by the WWII Museum I saw recently, an Italian-American vet who had been on the ground/ordnance crew for the atomic missions from Tinian, and who returned to continue/eventually run his family's construction business, casually dropped his confident conclusion about who killed Hoffa towards the end of the interview.


He was talking about his post-war life and his run-ins with mobbed up labor unions, and the guy who menaced him for years was Hoffa's killer, he asserted with no hint of doubt. Kind of funny.

Um, yes they do. They declare that the death of a human being is one of a list of possibilities.

A ruling of suicide ends any investigation usually. Without the ruling of homicide or pending the investigation has no hook to continue and the detectives will be put on other cases.

Now someone private could get permission for another forensic pathologist to examine Epsteins body and rule another way but they would have to get a judge and the Prosecutor involved and let's face it; even those not part of this thing in the least have little desire to be involved or to be associated with it in any way.

342 "Satan rules the earth, God rules heaven."

Satan as god of this world does not have power over the Christian (sticking with the Christian side of things). The whole "Christ in you the hope of glory" ... gives us sonship rights to claim our new authority, since we were redeemed from Adam's sins, via the blood of the lamb. Had the prince's of this world known about that (the mystery) they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.


The world is still the world and evil is pretty prevalent, I just never like to acquiesce to the idea the Satan rules the earth. No, we have power. There is a rather direct parallel to the US constitution ... we have power over the corrupt, but the deceivers (like the NYT) use their propaganda to get us to submit (calling us racist, and all that, building their fake narrative).


Just from a mental state of mind, a free people should never subject themselves to the powers of this world ... like the NYT or Obama's DoJ ... united we stand. So they divide us. They don't own us, they don't own anyone, but many submit. imo

If I recollect correct, the NYT has a policy of having each reporter pick a 'theme' each year and in every article they write inject a little plug on that 'theme'.

I'd expect that is considered a good policy at all major pubs, because NYT does it so it has to be a good thing..

Given the left leanings of the 'press' in general most of the 'themes' are going to be issues near and dear to the progs.
No surprise 'Global Warming' pops in damn near every article one reads for years (you could read an article in NatGeo about the Civil War and they'd put in a gratuitous plug on global warming).

Baseless allegations that Trump is a RUSSIAN asset was a sure hit for prog reporters to slip into every story no matter how unrelated.

That they would actually create news by subtly changing the reported facts and would aid each other in presenting a united front in case of any disagreement.

The local and state L.E. here in SC are not going to be knocking on anybodies doors. And the Federales would soon find all their vehicles disabled. The U.S. Army is not going to touch it.

Haven't seen them play in a while, but to be rash I'd take the Soviet version under coach Tikhonov, and these cheerleaders [who didn't exist back then, of course], as the combo for the win.


Don't think the current system can produce a team with the discipline and systematic approach to the game that was perhaps the sole redeeming thing produced by decades of Soviet terror, theft, and mayhem.

425 Notsothoreau, of course the *still* generally unknown actual facts of C'ville are that the mixed group of demonstrators [some normal, historically literate people opposed to a Nazi/Taliban approach to history, and monuments - mixed with nuts, real, and fake, "white power" dimwits] had permits and there would have been no event to speak of if police had not allowed/effed up the antifa-type thugs [um, no permits, committing violations just by assembling the way they did] to disrupt things.


Even after the police [with a very apparent strong case that the governor, mayor, and chief of police culpably denied the protestors their civil rights by allowing things to develop] had allowed things to get violent on the margins of the permitted protest, they did much worse when disbanding it - forcing people out the back of the park, right into the mob/melee, instead of forward and to the side, where empty streets were available.


The AG, that very day, promised a civil rights investigation [most relying on "press" distortion, assumed that meant one directed towards the handful of white power nitwits]. Bupkis. And the only ones in jeopardy in such a review would have been the governor, mayor, and chief of police.

Heather Locklear has pleaded no contest to charges that she fought with first responders during two visits to her Southern California home last year.

Locklear entered the plea in Ventura County court Friday afternoon to five counts of battery on a peace officer, one count of battery on emergency personnel and two counts of resisting, obstructing or delaying a peace officer.

A judge sentenced her to 120 days in jail, but the sentence was stayed pending completion of a substance-abuse treatment program.

The 57-year-old "Melrose Place" and "T.J. Hooker" actress was also sentenced to three years' probation.

Being in Michigan I'm curious as to where he thought Jimmy eventually ended up. There's always been speculation about who killed him but nobody seems to have found him. Lots of people think he ended up in New Jersey.

459 "I think one of the reasons people have such a problem with a headline like this ... is because they care so much," one staffer said to Baquet. "And they depend on the New York Times. They are depending on us to keep kicking down the doors and getting through, because they need that right now. It's a very scary time."

No, they depend on you to KEEP LYING to them, so they can keep hating other Americans without any guilty self-reflection. Ever consider atoning for the lies you admit to (behind closed doors), instead of pledging to create new and better ones?

He sort of tapered off the "nieces" as the Angel relationship blossomed, so there's that.

Not that I believe that every detail of his life, as posted here, was unvarnished truth, but that he was a real individual, and not wholly a fictional construct.

Three, I thank Bander was posting ironically, as if to suggest maybe Palpatine was a phony from the git go.

Joe Biden Drew Only 30 Supporters in NH During Trump Rally

Posted by: Sharrukin2 at August 17, 2019 02:17 PM (ltuaO)



Maybe Biden, maybe Not Biden.
It does not really matter.

Despite the massive difference in rally attendance, lifelong donks and progs will vote for whoever has a 'D', repubs will vote 'R', What will count is who is counting the votes.

When you see some talking head saying the reason for huge Trump rallies is his very enthusiastic base and that is still a small part of all voters and the final vote will still be about 50/50 like it always is, they are right.

And it scares the fvck out of the dem/prog left.

They are masters of projection and transference. Obama etc pulls shit and tells the supporters to get in their face, confront them everywhere, when they bring a knife we bring a gun...
If Trump even comes close any such phrase they freak out because the Progs did do all of that.

The NYY knew Russia Russia Russia was a hoax right from the start, because one of their own journos had sex with James Wolfe, Feinstein's pal in the Intelligence Senate committee, who leaked to her the unredacted FISA application on Carter Page.

FISA application requirements are very specific. The FBI must prove their FISA evidence is accurate. Page's FISA application is nothing but a copy of the Steel Dossier, Russian propaganda disguised as oppo research paid for by the Clinton machine.

The NYT fully knew the origins of the investigation started by the FBI was a fraud. So no, they didn't get it wrong. They peddle lies on purpose.

This is key. Even though I enthusiastically voted for him there was a nagging tiny worry about what he'd do in office.

Top Men have to be gripping hard about how easy he's made being a good, potentially great, President look. Those assholes aren't getting the party back under control in 2024 if this continues.

Yes, but...

Warren won her Senate seat with 54% in 2012 against incumbent RINO Scott Brown, who had won the seat just two years earlier. She won reelection easily in 2016 with 60% of the vote. She almost certainly starts with well over 200 electoral votes.

Of course, but MA had elected Scott Brown two years earlier and elected and re-elected arch-RINO Charlie Baker as governor afterwards. Baker remains the most popular governor in the country today, despite many like me being disgusted with him.

Warren locks up the blue states and has a siren-like appeal in swing states to suburban and single women who are looking for big government to permanently take the place of the generous daddy/husband they never had.

Brown was an outlier and he only lasted one term. It sure didn't hurt that he got to run against Martha Coakley who is thoroughly unlikable and dumb enough to not have a clue about recent Red Sox history while running in MA.

I don't see Warren having much appeal outside of deep blue areas. People know she's a phony.

Charlie Baker (R-LOL) was later elected governor of MA in 2014 and reelected in 2018. Sure, Martha Coakley is uniquely repellant, but even the Dems would never allow her to run for anything ever again.

I don't see Warren having much appeal outside of deep blue areas. People know she's a phony.

Everyone knows she's a phony, and it has now been proven by her own 1/1024th DNA tests, and yet she's at #2 in the Dem primary polls and climbing. It is about her appeal to single women. Blame the 19th amendment for allowing people to vote themselves free shit.

Yes, she's number 2 in the Democrat primary. That's my point. The base has gone so far left that she has a reasonably good shot at the nomination. That's not saying much when you look at the collection of freaks and weirdos running. It looks the Star Wars bar scene when they get together.

676 An insatiable, restless soul, always on the move, Epstein builds a tremendous amount of downtime into his hectic work schedule. Yet there is something almost programmed about his relaxation: it’s as if even pleasure has to be measured in terms of self-improvement. Nowak says that, when he goes to stay with Epstein in the Caribbean, they’ll get up at six and, as the sun rises, have three-hour conversations about theoretical physics. “Then he’ll go off and do some work, re-appear, and we’ll talk some more.”

Another person who went to the island with Epstein, Maxwell, and several beautiful women remembers that the women “sat around one night teasing him about the kinds of grasping women who might want to date him. He was amused by the idea…. He’s like a king in his own world.”
