Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Running scared

Not the meagerest drop of sympathy from me.

WASHINGTON — New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger said he warned President Trump at a face-to-face meeting July 20 that Trump consistently referring to the media as “the enemy of the people” will lead to violence.

Sulzberger said he attended, at the request of the White House, along with NYT editorial page editor James Bennet.

“My main purpose for accepting the meeting was to raise concerns about the president’s deeply troubling anti-press rhetoric,” Sulzberger said. “I told the president directly that I thought that his language was not just divisive but increasingly dangerous.”

“I told him that although the phrase ‘fake news’ is untrue and harmful…”

“Untrue” it demonstrably, provably is NOT. With that blatant, self-serving lie, we got nothing more to talk about here as far as I’m concerned.

“I made clear repeatedly that I was not asking for him to soften his attacks on The Times if he felt our coverage was unfair,” Sulzberger said. “Instead, I implored him to reconsider his broader attacks on journalism, which I believe are dangerous and harmful to our country.”

Know what really IS “dangerous and harmful to our country”? The raw propaganda the “broader” range of “journalists” have been fobbing off for years and years as “honest,” “balanced,” “unbiased” reportage. Just how many years am I talking about? Oh, ’round about a hundred and fifty, give or take:

The business of a New York journalist is to distort the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to villify, to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread, or for what is about the same — his salary. You know this, and I know it; and what foolery to be toasting an “Independent Press”! We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping-jacks. They pull the string and we dance. Our time, our talents, our lives, our possibilities, are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.

That’s a quote from a famous speech made by John Swinton, a NYT op-ed writer and hardcore Leftist himself, in…1883. The more things change, the more they etc.

If Sulzberger doesn’t want to be referred to as an “enemy of the people,” he should start doing his level best to stop acting like one.

  1. Apparently Trump has a number of Cohen’s tapes during which Cohen spoke with “several” journalists about their disdain for PDT and how they planned to……….ahhh……..un-horse the President.

    Sulzberger is shitting bricks over the upcoming revelations…..

  2. “If Sulzberger doesn’t want to be referred to as an “enemy of the people,” he should start doing his level best to stop acting like one.”

    it’s not an act.

  3. Typical leftist. Blames the right for doing what the left is actually doing. Blaming the right for having the evil in their hearts that the left actually has. Want to know what a leftist has in mind or is doing? Watch what he blames conservatives for thinking/doing.

  4. They’re just pissed off that they are no longer the so called gatekeepers. Forget the bias for a moment and just think about their track record. They’ve been trying to pass off people as wunderkind the sort of people who have a questionable ability to eat paste or lick windows.

    People don’t trust the media anymore for three reasons: 1. excessive bias; 2. selling bullshit as boot polish; 3. they’re blithering idiots.

  5. Wonder if this meeting has anything to do with Giuliani (sp?) mentioning that thanks to the Cohen investigation they now have dozens of tapes of Cohen talking with journalist and politicians about Trump.

    Most likely not, but its fun to image what it was like if it did.
