The New Republic’s Steve Sailer: The New York Times Is A Bitch For “Anti-Semitism”
IGN: It’s been a rough year for the New York TIMES.
And a year of it is no easy feat.
The New Republic is the most-read national newspaper in the United States and the biggest newspaper in North America, but in 2016 the company struggled to find its voice.
The New Yorker and the Washington Post, both publications owned by the same parent company, have long been the flagship publications of the New Republic.
But the Times has been struggling to make a name for itself.
The company is facing challenges from a new era of populism, which sees Trump and his supporters as the true enemy of journalism, according to a new report from the left-leaning New America Foundation.
In a new piece for the journal, New America senior fellow Richard Cohen said the Times was the epitome of a “liberal media” that has lost its way and is “a bastion of anti-Semitism, bigotry, and xenophobia.”
Cohen, a longtime critic of the Times, said the company was at a crossroads, and that its failure to attract the right voters was the most important factor in its downfall.
“The Times’s core mission, at least for now, has been to protect the rights of its owners,” Cohen said.
“That has been a very effective mission.
The Times’s coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign, while sometimes not perfect, was generally more nuanced than most mainstream outlets.”
The Times did not respond to a request for comment.
The piece also highlighted the New Yorker’s recent run-ins with white supremacists.
The article noted that, during the presidential campaign in November, New Yorker editor Gerard Baker was forced to resign after a former employee wrote a story about the publisher’s “lack of sensitivity” toward white supremacists and neo-Nazis.
A former employee told the New Statesman that Baker told her, “I’m just not good at this.”
The former employee also alleged that Baker instructed her to not mention white supremacy by name in the article.
The former employee was told that her comments would not be published, and she has not filed a complaint against Baker.
The Times, however, did not retract its article.
In an email to The Huffington Post, the company said that Baker “is one of our top editors and we were very disappointed to learn of this story, which was not intended to be taken as an endorsement by any member of our editorial staff.”
The article also highlighted how the New American Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports journalism and freedom of the press, accused the Times of a series of “systematic, systemic failures.”
The foundation has long criticized the newspaper’s treatment of the Trump campaign and other conservative causes.
In 2016, it wrote an open letter to the Times complaining about its treatment of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
The letter called for the Times to publish a list of prominent conservatives and Trump supporters, including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and conservative radio host Laura Ingraham, who had been critical of the newspaper.
The foundation also wrote to the paper about its decision to remove a piece from its website that criticized former President Donald Trump for his racist and anti-Semitic views.
The piece, by journalist Glenn Greenwald, was called “An Anti-Semitic View of the Donald Trump Presidency.”
The New American foundation also said that the Times “has consistently failed to meet journalistic standards,” including “reporting on cases of alleged bias against certain groups and individuals, and covering news stories that have been historically underrepresented in the media.”
In the wake of the election, the Times reported that it had received more than 1,400 complaints about bias from members of the public and had launched an investigation into one complaint.
The organization said it found no evidence that any of the complaints were substantiated.
In its letter to The Times, the New America foundation said that it is concerned about “the ongoing failure of the media and other outlets to uphold the highest journalistic standards.”
It added that it was also concerned about the Times’ “failure to respond appropriately” to these complaints.
