Ted Cruz Goes Completely Savage On NYT After Paper Commits To Covering Trump As ‘Racist’

Cruz throwin’ bows!

Published

on

Last week a transcript leaked of a speech by New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet as published by Slate, and part of that transcript featured Baquet admitting that since the Russia collusion stuff fell apart, they’re planning on publishing stories that claim President Trump is a racist for the rest of his presidency.

This did not at all sit well with Sen. Ted Cruz who went total savage on the publication and shredded them to tiny bits over their obvious journalistic bias and abandonment of principles of integrity in their reporting.

“There was a time when journalists covered ‘news.’ The NYT has given up on even pretending anymore. Today, they are Pravda, a propaganda outlet by liberals, for liberals. These remarks at their ‘town hall’ are a scandal & would be a firing offense at any real journalistic outlet,” Cruz tweeted in reference to Baquet’s remarks.

Cruz then paraphrased Baquet’s remarks: “The Editor says (in effect) ‘for 2 yrs, we covered ‘Russia, Russia, Russia,’ facts be damned; now we’ll scream ‘racism, racism, racism’ for 18 mos, and the rest of the media follow us.’ That’s not journalism.”

CNBC reporter John Harwood criticized Cruz’s tweet by claiming “that’s not what the editor said.”

In reality, Cruz’s paraphrase is close to what Baquet said. The Times editor said that they covered the alleged Russia collusion story the way they did because they thought it looked “a certain way.” From the transcript:

Chapter 1 of the story of Donald Trump, not only for our newsroom but, frankly, for our readers, was: Did Donald Trump have untoward relationships with the Russians, and was there obstruction of justice? That was a really hard story, by the way, let’s not forget that. We set ourselves up to cover that story. I’m going to say it. We won two Pulitzer Prizes covering that story. And I think we covered that story better than anybody else.

The day Bob Mueller walked off that witness stand, two things happened. Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, “Holy shit, Bob Mueller is not going to do it.” And Donald Trump got a little emboldened politically, I think. Because, you know, for obvious reasons. And I think that the story changed. A lot of the stuff we’re talking about started to emerge like six or seven weeks ago. We’re a little tiny bit flat-footed. I mean, that’s what happens when a story looks a certain way for two years. Right?

After the story fell apart, the NYT felt they needed a brand new angle from which to approach negatively covering Trump in the news, so they decided to pick the most frequently used false narrative being pumped around the Internet: Trump is racist.

I think that we’ve got to change. I mean, the vision for coverage for the next two years is what I talked about earlier: How do we cover a guy who makes these kinds of remarks? How do we cover the world’s reaction to him? How do we do that while continuing to cover his policies? How do we cover America, that’s become so divided by Donald Trump? How do we grapple with all the stuff you all are talking about? How do we write about race in a thoughtful way, something we haven’t done in a large way in a long time? That, to me, is the vision for coverage. You all are going to have to help us shape that vision. But I think that’s what we’re going to have to do for the rest of the next two years.

Here’s how Cruz responded to Harwood’s tweet:

The lesson the NYT needs to learn here, besides not using their power and platform to simply destroy someone they disagree with politically, which violates the principles our nation was founded on, is that you don’t put this stuff out there, especially with Sen. Ted Cruz on the loose.

Cruz is an intellectual giant, a clear, articulate thinker who has more knowledge and wisdom in a pinky finger than that which is contained in the brains of the entire NYT staff, which they have now discovered after taking this brutal lashing.

Will they learn and correct themselves? Absolutely not.

Save conservative media!

Roughly ’10 to 15 Percent’ of Americans Are ‘Not Very Good People,’ Says Joe Biden

Imagine if Trump said it…

Like most (if not all) Democrats, Joe Biden can get away with anything he says because he has the mainstream media on his side. President Trump is obviously not afforded that luxury. Anybody want to get a jump on those inevitable “10 to 15 percent” t-shirts? Check this out, via New York Times: WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. told a group of black supporters on Thursday night that most Americans were good people who think the nation can be improved, while also declaring that “there are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people.” Mr. Biden offered his estimate during remarks in which he spoke about the importance of a president setting a positive example for the nation on racial issues. He accused President Trump of dividing the country while pledging that, as president, he would not. Joe said, “The words a president says matter, so when a president stands up and divides people all the time, you’re going to get the worst of us to come out.” He added, “Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that. There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent, and we have to appeal to that and we have to unite people — bring them together. Bring them together.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1201984322909229056?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201984322909229056&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F Reactions: https://twitter.com/trippwhitbeck/status/1201992151292432384?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201992151292432384&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/sunscreen_ceo/status/1201985832703287296?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985832703287296&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/1962Kiser/status/1201985108128829440?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985108128829440&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/laurenduca/status/1201930900445057024?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201930900445057024&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Fdemocrat-voters-are-so-racist-lauren-duca-shames-the-left-for-their-white-supremacy-after-kamala-harris-drops-out-ha%2F https://twitter.com/notaguido1/status/1201943648583200769?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201943648583200769&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Fdemocrat-voters-are-so-racist-lauren-duca-shames-the-left-for-their-white-supremacy-after-kamala-harris-drops-out-ha%2F https://twitter.com/Thomas_Firenze/status/1201996468757749760?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201996468757749760&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/FourthHailMary/status/1201985912328130561?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985912328130561&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/markbeenyc/status/1201987371115388928?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201987371115388928&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/navymig/status/1201985998801911808?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985998801911808&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/alexsimonelis/status/1201986045719568384?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201986045719568384&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F H/T: Twitchy

‘Practice Things Like An Eye Gouge!’ Project Veritas Infiltrates Antifa, Learns Devastating Truths

These guys aren’t playing around!

“Practice things like an eye gouge. It takes very little pressure to injure someone’s eyes,” says Antifa member, Nicholas Cifuni. Pretty sickening. Then again, nothing about the anti-fascist fascist movement is on the level. James O’Keefe of Project Veritas had an operative infiltrate an Antifa outfit in Portland. What was learned is pretty devastating. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLR76_e_koE&feature=emb_title From Fox News: Attorney General Bill Barr announced Thursday that investigations of recent violence spinning out of protests yielded evidence that not only are various “extremist” groups taking advantage of the unrest for their own ends, but that “foreign actors” are also getting involved. […] Barr said that there is evidence that those extremists include Antifa and other groups of different political persuasions, as well as “foreign actors playing all sides to exacerbate the violence.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1267091647042473985?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1267091647042473985&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-james-okeefe-infiltrates-antifa%2F Here’s more Antifa nonsense… https://twitter.com/SenTedCruz/status/1268693940376604677 https://twitter.com/mtgreenee/status/1268692420834799617 https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/1268684723053789184 https://twitter.com/stillgray/status/1268684820151844864 https://twitter.com/SamParkerSenate/status/1268529530655793152?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1268529530655793152&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2020%2F06%2F04%2Four-revolution-cannot-be-stopped-project-veritas-infiltrates-antifa-exposing-the-terrorist-movement-and-holy-crap-watch%2F https://twitter.com/SenTedCruz/status/1268686572439904260
