This Is CNN

Corporate Media Wants To Silence The Federalist Because It Can’t Compete

Quote:
In an apparent collaboration with a leftist activist group from the United Kingdom, the eerily named “Verification Unit” of NBC News lobbied Google to demonetize the website you’re reading right now. The deplorable sin committed by The Federalist? Speaking out against the Approved Narrative regarding the riots following the death of George Floyd and the radical nature of Black Lives Matter.

What NBC News ultimately failed to do on Tuesday wasn’t journalism. It was a digital assassination attempt.

Your Moral And Intellectual Superiors

Quote:
Bari Weiss resigns from the New York Times: “Twitter is not on the masthead of The New York Times. But Twitter has become its ultimate editor”.
From the comments:

Quote:
I liked this part:

“…a new consensus has emerged in the press, but perhaps especially at this [NY Times] paper: that truth isn’t a process of collective discovery, but an orthodoxy already known to an enlightened few whose job is to inform everyone else.

That’s solid gold.
Bold mine.

Nails it.

Neocon Lesbian Bari Weiss Leaves the New York Times, Blaming Woke Millennials for Poisoning the Paper

Update: Former Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang says the New York Times is no longer fit for purpose.

Lesbians are only permitted to have one type of politics.

Matter of fact -- everyone is only permitted to have one type of politics.
Bari Weiss, a writer and editor for the embattled New York Times Opinion section, is leaving the paper.

When reached by phone, Weiss did not want to offer any further comment beyond confirming that she was out. According to an internal source, she was removed from the staff directory sometime in the past week.

A controversial figure inside and outside the paper, Weiss leaves in the wake of what she recently described as a civil war at the Times between "(mostly young) wokes" and "(mostly 40+) liberals."
She's published this resignation letter.

It's a hell of a letter.
Bold mine.

Yes. Yes, it is.

Further Fallout from Bari Weiss Resignation

Quote:
Meanwhile, CNN spins for the NYT -- see, Weiss was fired because she was "controversial."

They forget to mention that she was targeted by antisemitic bullies.

Plus: Is this a coordinated effort? Andrew Sullivan announces the end of his employment by the #Wokecult New York Magazine.

Four Days Since A Police Brutality Story Unraveled, The Atlantic Still Refuses To Respond

Quote:
Four days after the facts of a powerful, moving, and deeply personal defund-the-police story in The Atlantic began to unravel in the face of a Federalist investigation, the magazine remains silent. The investigation encompassed newspaper archives, police department records, questions to The Atlantic, the police union, and the office of the mayor, and found the city has no apparent recollection of the serious incident alleged in the magazine — and the writer and editor still have no answers.
Finally:

The Atlantic Finally Admits Its Police Abolition Piece Is Based On A False Narrative

Quote:
An investigation by The Federalist encompassing newspaper archives, police department records, questions to The Atlantic, the police union, and the office of the mayor, however, called the story — including facts about the neighborhood, the timeline of the incident, and if the incident described even happened at all — into question.

Four days, six comment requests, and one follow-up story later, The Atlantic issued a series of major corrections that confirmed The Federalist’s investigation — and gutted the Purnell’s story of the police violence that made her “a police abolitionist,” rendering it a story about a private security guard shooting his adult cousin. Although the updated story no longer involves personally motivated and barely punished police violence against children, it now includes mention of a police investigation. Additionally, a contemporary news article uncovered by The Federalist using the updated timeline details pending police charges against the shooter.
False narrative? Why don't they just call a lie an f'ing lie...
