If you’re frustrasted – er, frustrated – from reading all the errors in your New York Times stories you’re not alone.
Now the copy editors at the New York Times have been fired. All for the sake of cost cutting and their sudden fascination with “New Media.”
Executive Editor Dean Baquet – the Torquemada of newspaper publishing – thinks that cohesive news stories can be produced without the time-honored position of the copy editor.
Good luck with that, Deano.
It was just last week that Sarah Palin brought legal action against The Times for their sloppy editorial – no doubt written by a twenty-something – that wrongly described Palin’s despicable gunsight campaign ads as directly targeting Rep. Gabby Giffords rather than her district. (The Times had to correct the editorial.)
The New York Times under Dean Baquet has been in a steady slide toward sloppy muck and his wholesale firings of dedicated, vitally important staff members underscores Baquet’s schoolboy joy of dismantling what was once the greatest newspaper in these United States.
Note: And while Baquet makes these supposedly cost-savings moves, the same day’s NYT’s paper reviews a $377,000 Ferrari station wagon made for the average family to drop off the kids to school…
How’s THAT for the good liberal disconnect? Fire the workers then feed the readers their Ferrari fantasies.
Oh, shut up and go back to your little smartphone screens…
How fiercely crass is The New York Times? We’ll tell you.
On April 12th 2017 they promoted a “controversial” story about the “Fearless Girl” statue on Wall Street and how it turned the sculptor of the Wall Street bull rather peevish.
It turned out to generate massive coverage and feedback from people all over the world.
Great, you might say?
Not so great, we say.
Because the “Fearless Girl” statue was commissioned by State Street Capitol Advisors – Who The New York Times took Big $ from for a Big Ad in their same day’s Business Section which just so happened to blare – get this – “Sometimes Shit Happens.”
Well, actually, the ad said – “Sometimes —– Happens.”
But why be coy when you’re in bed with The New York Times and promoting yourself by ludicrously tying your corporate profits onto the back of the Women’s Rights Movement?
Talk about shame.
Shame on The New York Times.
Shame on State Street Capitol Advisors.
Shame on all those who got suckered into this false “discussion” of “Fearless Girl” when the real issue is about two corporations making a tempest in a teapot in order to generate corporate profits.
If you thought Pepsi and Kendall Jenner were tone deaf on race relations before, NOW it’s even worse!
That TV ad about race relations in America was actually filmed by Pepsi in Thailand!
Because it was CHEAPER.
Actor in Kendall Jenner’s Pepsi Ad Reveals Most Extras Were Not from U.S and Didn’t Understand the Racial Issues
People magazine talked to an extra on the shoot who spilled the beans. They said no one on the shoot even knew what was going on.
I mean, how many Black Lives Matters groups are there in Bangkok?
Again, a monstrous US multi-national corporation that cares only about profits tries to make money off the deaths and abuse of thousands of humans.
Pepsi – Pour a taste on a grave, why dontcha.
As big corporate sponsors such as Mercedes Benz and Allstate withdrew their advertising money from Fox’s Bill O’Reilly’s TV program based on multiple lawsuits where he settled sexual harassment claims, the Indianapolis based corporation Angie’s List has decided to Stand By Its Sexually Harassing Man O’Reilly.
Cheryl Reed, spokeswoman for Angie’s List, as quoted in The New York Times said, “Just as we trust members to make their own hiring decisions, we trust them to make their own media consumption decisions.”
By Angie’s List’s own logic, then…if a corporation such as Angie’s List CHOOSES to sponsor a PROVEN CORRUPTOR such as Bill O’Reilly, then consumers should CHOOSE NOT TO USE that corporation – ANGIE’S LIST.
Thanks for giving us that option, Angie!
Cause when Bill O’Reilly comes after you or your daughters or your friends or anyone you know, he’ll be smiling that creepy smile knowing YOU’VE got his back.
Angie’s List has proudly touted their Indianapolis, Indiana headquarters location, knowing they are in the heart of Mike Pence territory where religious-backed Right-Wing politics rule the land and women’s rights are held in such low esteem that Governor Pence made it his policy never to sit down at a table with a single woman, fearing the supposed backhand of God swatting him across his dirty little mind.
The AARP organization – a legal non-profit – is surprising their members with their full-blown support of Donald Trump.
The fact that the AARP organization has swung around to being a Right-Wing political lobbying weapon whose top leadership is so gung-ho on Trump has raised the concerns of many members.
Meanwhile, the CEO of AARP has been featured prominently in national ads trying to sell multiple services – unwanted by most Americans – instead of doing the good work she’s supposed to be doing: Assisting those 50 and over who are simply scraping by.
When an AARP mass email went out to members touting how The Donald is their friend, lot’s of AARP members questioned whether AARP was their friend.
Donald Trump has just signed an executive order giving carte blanche to Wall Street traders to seek their own profits irregardless of their client’s best interests. This means Wall Street can gamble on their own with clients money – gambling with retirement savings – without any repercussions.
Just WHY would a president eliminate the only laws in place that protect individual investors? And WHY does AARP think this is a great idea?
Protecting citizens’ savings should be the primary concern of AARP – yet AARP supports Pres. Trump’s efforts to let Wall Street steal investors funds.
Just who does AARP support?
In what can only be the most aggressively racist act of the new Trump Administration, President Trump purposely left out any mention of the millions of Jews decimated during the Holocaust.
President Trump’s statement on International Holocaust Remembrance Day made no mention whatsoever of how Jews were targeted by Hitler his Final Solution – the systematic elimination of all Jews.
Later, when taken to task over this egregious lack of acknowledgment of all the Jews killed, Trump and his administration refused to make any apologies, instead, insisting more than ever they purposely choose not to mention Jews.
This is merely the beginning. Trump’s chief man in The White House Steve Bannon has determinedly attacked Jews for years in his media business and espoused anti-Jewish attitudes in his racist rants.
During Trump’s campaign events many supporters showed racist, white-power signs. These were never denounced by Trump.
The joke here is that Trump constantly rants about supporting the state of Israel.
It’s a smokescreen.
Trump’s faithful supporters and his foremost advisor, Steve Bannon, are racists of the first order.
Duke played Boston College Saturday and what would a Duke game be without another high-kicking Grayson Allen move!
It’s clearly time for Grayson Allen to just give up this basketball game and go ahead and join the high-stepping Radio City Rockettes.
At least on the stage he’ll finally be where he ought to be: Under the spotlights and getting paid for what he does best.
