Fair enough. I think the news section is also slightly skewed, but i don't really mind it.
I get my news from multiple sources in order to get all angles, and it's often interesting to see how the same story gets spun 5 different ways.
What are the terms, slanted versus biased? The NYT might have a more liberal point of view overall, but they do tough, fact-based journalism that you can rely on 99% of the time. Compare to somebody like Fox News, who has a conservative point of view overall, but they make stuff up, lie, push propaganda, and distort statistics in order to confuse and deceive people rather than providing them with good quality information.
Piece by piece, James Comey and Admiral Michael Rogers tore apart every single aspect of Trump's false claims. First they said that President Obama did not have the power to order such wiretaps. Then they said that they had investigated Trump's claims and did not find a shred of evidence that any such wiretap ever existed. Pushed on the conspiracy theory that possibly the British government was asked to do it by Obama, Admiral Rogers, who again was appointed by Trump to replace disgraced former national security adviser Michael Flynn, stated the claim simply was not true and that the assertion from the White House that it was true was damaging to our international relationships.
To make sure his statement on the matter was abundantly clear, FBI Director Comey said he had the full permission of the Justice Department to speak on their behalf that they also found absolutely no evidence that Donald Trump was wiretapped by Obama, or anyone else for that matter. Mind you — the Justice Department is overseen by Trump's bestie, Jeff Sessions, and even Sessions could not bring himself to join in on the lie.
It was a bombshell. In front of the entire world, under oath, two leaders of our intelligence community testified that our current President repeatedly told flagrant lies on our previous President.
It depends how you define the bias of an entire paper. I think many people employed by the paper are liberal and especially their opinion pages & editorials tend to lean liberal, but I believe their news reporting (which is the most important function of a paper) is, on the whole, not biased and strives for objectivity.
I believe simpletons who cry "liberal media" anytime a NYT link is posted use the former as a sad excuse to dismiss the latter; for example, see the most recent instance on this page.
It's amazing that mickey just could not wait to write a post that embodies the things I described absolutely perfectly:

These are Pulitzer Prizes the NYT has won since 2010:
2010: Michael Moss, in Explanatory Reporting, for an investigative feature on food safety (e.g., contaminated meat); Matt Richtel, in National Reporting, for a series on the dangers of distracted driving; Sheri Fink of ProPublica in collaboration with The New York Times Magazine, in Investigative Reporting, for “The Deadly Choices At Memorial” about Hurricane Katrina survivors (award shared with the Philadelphia Daily News).
2011: Clifford J. Levy and Ellen Barry, in International Reporting, for their “Above the Law” series, which examined abuse of power in Russia, showing how authorities had jailed, beaten or harassed citizens who opposed them; and David Leonhardt, in Commentary, for his weekly column “Economic Scene” which offered perspectives on the formidable problems confronting America, from creating jobs to recalibrating tax rates.
2012: David Kocieniewski, in Explanatory Reporting, for his series on tax avoidance; and Jeffrey Gettleman, in International Reporting, for his reports on famine and conflict in East Africa.
2013: David Barstow and Alejandra Xanic von Bertrab, in Investigative Reporting, for describing bribery by Walmart in Mexico; New York Times staff, in Explanatory Reporting, for examining global business practices of Apple Inc. and other technology companies; David Barboza, in International Reporting, for exposing corruption in the Chinese government; and John Branch, in Feature Writing, for "Snow Fall," a multimedia presentation about avalanches.
2014: Tyler Hicks, in Breaking News Photography, for his compelling pictures that showed skill and bravery in documenting the unfolding terrorist attack at Westgate mall in Kenya; Josh Haner, in Feature Photography, for his moving essay on a Boston Marathon bomb blast victim who lost most of both legs and now is painfully rebuilding his life
2015: Eric Lipton, in Investigative Reporting, for reporting that showed how the influence of lobbyists can sway congressional leaders and state attorneys general, slanting justice toward the wealthy and connected; New York Times staff, in International Reporting, for courageous front-line reporting and vivid human stories on Ebola in Africa, engaging the public with the scope and details of the outbreak while holding authorities accountable; Daniel Berehulak, in Feature Photography, for his gripping, courageous photographs of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa
2016: Tyler Hicks, Mauricio Lima, Sergey Ponomarev and Daniel Etter for breaking news photography for coverage of the ongoing migrant crisis in Europe and the Middle East, and Alissa Rubin for international reporting for her coverage of the lives of women and girls in Afghanistan including the horrific murder of young Afghan woman who was beaten to death by a mob after being falsely accused of burning a Quran. John Woo and Adam Ellick produced a powerful accompanying video about the murder.
It really is a damn shame that "tainted meat" is an issue only liberals care about.
Read the bolded portions of my post and then read your post again. Consider which part of a newspaper writes presidential endorsements. Maybe wait a couple hours and see if it's sunk in yet, it might take awhile.
New York Times is a liberal source. Same paper that said Hillary had a 99% chance of winning the election.
And the story you are getting told is watered down. Trump implying his campaign was spied on by the Dems and Obama and their is massive evidence to support that.
What do we know in plain sight? DNC chair Donna Brazille, colluded with CNN to feed Hillary questions..she is now finally coming clean. The DNC rigged the Dems primaries against Bernie. 
Donald never had that kind of pull with the Republicans. They were all against him. The media laughed at him in the Primaries.
In the midst of all of this craziness, let's not forget that Jeff Sessions LIED under oath in his confirmation hearings. But he's still Attorney General. What the hell is going on? Why aren't Republicans across the board calling for his resignation?
