Re: The New York Times

Debating whether to send this to Politics where I assume it was intended or French BBV like in the good old days

Last edited by Dudd; 09-24-2018 at 02:44 PM. Reason: French BBV appears to no longer exist. This is an outrage

Re: The New York Times

News Section: obtains Donald jr’s traitorous email exchange, prints it in 3 parts and gets everyone including the potus to lie about it then get busted on those lies within a day

Opinion Section: Michelle Goldberg and Charles Blow


Conclusion: not all bad

Re: The New York Times

No one (I don't think) mentioned that they not only wouldn't print the second Kavenaugh allegation but also publicized that decision to the point that the other side is using that fact as ammunition

Even a broken clock...

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/25/o...asey-ford.html

The big reason is that I despise Ted Cruz. That is “D-e-s-p-i-s-e,” in case I haven’t spelled out my loathing clearly enough. Would you like to know why?

Because he’s like a serpent covered in Vaseline. Because he treats the American people like two-bit suckers in 10-gallon hats. Because he sucks up to the guy who insulted his wife — by retweet, no less. Because of his phony piety and even phonier principles. Because I see him as the spiritual love child of the 1980s televangelist Jimmy Swaggart and Jack Nicholson’s character in “The Shining.” Because his ethics are purely situational. Because he makes Donald Trump look like a human being by comparison. Because “New York values.” Because his fellow politicians detest him, and that’s just among Republicans. Because he never got over being the smartest kid in eighth grade. Because he’s conniving enough to try to put one over you, but not perceptive enough to realize that you see right through him. Because he’s the type of man who would sell his family into slavery if that’s what it took to get elected. And that he would use said slavery as a sob story to get himself re-elected.

Otherwise, you might say I’m his No. 1 fan.

Re: The New York Times

Amar recently walked back his support, saying something to the effect that he was troubled by the allegations about Kavanaugh. I had con law with his less famous brother, who was a solid, though mostly replacement level, prof.

Re: The New York Times

While the Washington Post appears, on the whole, to be significantly better than the New York Times despite employing Megan McArdle - the Kavanaugh hearings have caused me to notice another one of their opinion writers, former GWB speechwriter Marc A. Thiessen, who's had some staggering takes in the last couple weeks (these are the headlines and sub-headlines of his articles):


Look who’s shattering presidential norms now: With a highly partisan speech, Barack Obama demeans the presidency rather than the current president.

Trump is protecting our country from a sham of an international court: The International Criminal Court is a hindrance to democratic change.

Chaos or not, Trump is racking up a record of foreign policy success: Many worried he would usher in a new age of American isolationism. That hasn’t happened.

How much evidence do we need to destroy someone?: The current information about the allegation against Brett Kavanaugh should not be enough to derail his nomination.

The anatomy of a smear: Despite the alleged victim’s admitted uncertainty and the failure of a single witness to back her story, the New Yorker published an uncorroborated account.

Brett Kavanaugh fights back: The Senate must reject this campaign of character assassination.

Rachel Mitchell expertly eviscerates the case against Kavanaugh: If Ford’s memory is the only evidence against Brett Kavanaugh, then inconsistencies matter.

Ford’s case against Kavanaugh continues to erode: Let’s hope that due process will be honored when the Senate votes on the Supreme Court

Thiessen and Hugh Hewitt seem to be in some kind of competition for who can write the dumbest right-wing derp for WaPo.
