NYT asks how dare the National Enquirer act like us?

"Tabloid Company, Aiding Trump Campaign, May Have Crossed Line Into Politics," the New York Times headline said today.

I laughed so hard, I almost could not read the story by Jim Rutenberg and Ben Protess.

Rutenberg, as you may recall, is the Fake Reporter who demanded the media not treat President Trump fairly or objectively.

Amid the general election campaign, Rutenberg interviewed Carolyn Ryan, senior editor for politics for the Times. Boy, was that a tough get.

"As Ms. Ryan put it to me, Mr. Trump’s candidacy is ‘extraordinary and precedent-shattering’ and ‘to pretend otherwise is to be disingenuous with readers.’ It would also be an abdication of political journalism’s most solemn duty: to ferret out what the candidates will be like in the most powerful office in the world," he wrote.

"It may not always seem fair to Mr. Trump or his supporters. But journalism shouldn’t measure itself against any one campaign’s definition of fairness. It is journalism’s job to be true to the readers and viewers, and true to the facts, in a way that will stand up to history’s judgment. To do anything less would be untenable."

This is journalism at the Times, where slut reporters sleep with sources.

How dare this Fake Reporter smear the National Enquirer? In the 2008 campaign, the Times ignored the Enquirer's expose of Democrat John Edwards and his love child -- born while the Times praised Edwards for staying with his wife through her cancer.  

The Times did not cover the story for nine months until he dropped out of the race.

In the meantime, the Times published a Fake News article that falsely accused Republican John McCain having an affair with a lobbyist. The lobbyist sued, but to no avail as the Supreme Court in 1965 stripped libel laws of any meaning.

"Federal authorities examining the work President Trump’s former lawyer did to squelch embarrassing stories before the 2016 election have come to believe that an important ally in that effort, the tabloid company American Media Inc., at times acted more as a political supporter than as a news organization, according to people briefed on the investigation," Rutenberg and Protess wrote.

By federal authorities, they mean Bob Mueller whose prosecutorial abuse cost taxpayers $5.8 million to settle a lawsuit from the victim of one of his witch hunts in 2008.

The Times also reported, "A.M.I.’s role in the inquiry received new attention on Friday with news that federal authorities had seized a recording from Mr. Cohen in which he and Mr. Trump discussed a $150,000 deal A.M.I. struck before the election, effectively silencing a woman’s claims of an affair by buying the rights to her story and not publishing it. The men also discussed whether Mr. Trump should buy the rights away from the company, which he did not ultimately do, according to a lawyer for the president, Rudolph W. Giuliani."

For more than a decade, the Times pushed and pimped the candidacy and presidency of Barack Obama. How dare the National Enquirer act like the Times!

The real scandal is Mueller seizing Cohen's records and then leaking them to a press that has gone out of its way to attack President Trump and his supporters.

    2. I believe President Trump has everything, including illegal actions by the MSM. By not releasing it he is roiling The Swamp so vigorously I can smell it several hundred miles away. He's building anticipation to the climax. I believe it will be awesome. - Elric

  5. Krauthammer said in one of his last appearances that hypocrisy was so endemic in the left that discussing it wasted energy better applied to finding some solution to the actual problem they were lying about. He thought it was a tactic. Lately they seem to be promoting the basics of thoughtcrime again. That Trump is in power must mean their efforts to install it properly in the prefrontal cortex of every American during the Obama years were either faulty or there are some who require a more intense drilling effort. Faulty technique for the NYT is impossible, of course. So The answer must be always the same, as Kraut knew: drilling in a bigger lie, hugher and more grotesque than ever, one that overwhelms reality, stuns perception, makes the recalcitrant question his own presence of mind, even sanity. Like this story, written by a real self identified thought criminal of the highest rank.
    Fortunately, while The NYT has become just a cartoon balloon for those living in reality, it is still the truth for those afraid of being charged with thoughtcrime and its consequence: exclusion from the presence of the elect, them.

  6. There ought to be a health-warming on the 24/7 outrage industry. You just can maintain that constant level of apoplexy without it doing you in. There really ought to be a government program to treat these TDS sufferers in their native habitats.

    Hey, TPDoc, is Nitrazepam deliverable via tranquilizer dart?

  7. There's a parenteral formulation, so a dart could be loaded, yes.

  8. IIRC the Enquirer has been faulted for paying sources for their stories, which is, I've read, against "journalistic ethics" (giggle, snarf).

    I've long wondered why journalists expect to get the story for free, but then it's perfectly OK to make a bunch of money publishing it. And make more money off the book based on the story. But the source is supposed to give it away for free.

    I hope zregime and elric are right and the indictments for the coup-plotters, Brennan, Comey, Clapper, et al are signed, sealed and ready to be delivered, hopefully soon. And in this case, Sessions’ critics will likely be very embarrassed.

    But what I’ve read and been told is that Sessions is laboring very productively to clean up, streamline and make stringent the enforcement of the current immigration law, cutting down the flow of illegal aliens from south of the border. From my point of view, this shutting off of illegal immigration is more important than convicting every member of coup-plottters (as much as I’d like to see that done, too).

    And you’ll notice that the globo-commie left is leaving Sessions strictly alone, despite his persecution of the brown invaders, leaving him alone to do God’s work on the illegals. They are leaving him alone because they know if Trump were to replace him, the replacement would probably shut down the ongoing work of the current crop of coup-plotters (Rosenstein, Mueller, et al).

  10. " It is journalism’s job to be true to the readers and viewers, and true to the facts, in a way that will stand up to history’s judgment."

    Facts? What a smarmy statement. Isn't he just a very special little lecturing puppy with an attitude.
