“We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well. Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story.”

...That's what New York Times Editor-in-Chief Dean Baquet stated, in regards to ditching Russian collusion, and painting the President as a racist... ahead of the 2020 election...

This from leaked audio at an "employee town hall"...



In the beginning of the Trump administration, the Times geared up to cover the Russia affair, Baquet explained. “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.”

But then came the Mueller report, with special counsel Robert Mueller failing to establish that the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with Russia to fix the 2016 election. “The day Bob Mueller walked off that witness stand, two things happened,” Baquet continued. “Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, ‘Holy #, 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?”

Baquet used the gentlest terms possible — “the story changed” — but the fact is, the conspiracy-coordination allegation the Times had devoted itself to pursuing turned out to be false. Beyond that, Democrats on Capitol Hill struggled to press an obstruction case against the president. The Trump-Russia hole came up dry.

Now, Baquet continued, “I think that we’ve got to change.” The Times must “write more deeply about the country, race, and other divisions.”


This is a phenomenal example, of the leftist press at work...

They are pushing an agenda of division, racial or otherwise, to inflame or enrage. The liberal media thrives on chaos; the more, the merrier. They not only get their coveted ratings, they use this chaos to push radical, leftist socialism. This is their game.

This isn't journalism... this is propaganda, and it is getting disgusting.

Someone needs to be held accountable for all that crap, because there is plenty more where that came from. We need to make an example of someone and nip this nonsense in the bud. Monetary fines and public confessions sound reasonable to me, except for Hillary and Barack. Imprisonment

Liberals and the Mainstream Media truly believe the general public (Dems/Indies/Repubs) are too stupid to think for ourselves. Even after they are revealed as outright lying about a subject, they change to a different subject and lie some more.

And furthermore....

Those persons who pushed that narrative on here need to own up, step forward and admit to being gullible, foolish, and silly. We need an apology for the insults lobbed at us non stop for many months , I guess we will see who has the guts to do so.
I applaud one of the ATS moderators who stepped forward already and had a change of heart. It takes strength and intelligence to do such a thing

Pulitzer for what. Reporting the most garbage for 2 years. There were holes in the story like some old shot up stop sign but they kept going.

How about just report on the real story then. The Russia story was a ruse, perpetrated by the FBI and CIA. All the evidence is there. Only thing missing is the current reports on what happened about to hit the street. They won't report on that story though.

I've been egged, more than once. It's no big deal.

I can strain out the eggshells, and still make an omelette.

The next 2 years will be delightfully hilarious for some and very mentally damaging for others.

Either way, going to be a lot of fun.....

FYI: In 2013, Obama approved the weaponization of U.S. media. Enabling them to use Propaganda as they see fit. (As long as it wasn't against him!)


One of the lesser-known provisions that have snuck their way into the NDAA over the years was a small piece of legislation tacked onto the NDAA for fiscal year 2013, signed into law in that same year by then-President Barack Obama. Named “The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012,” it completely lifted the long-existing ban on the domestic dissemination of U.S. government-produced propaganda.

When President Trump said MENTAL ISSUES cause most of the violence, he wanted to include the TRAITORS in the MSM, but bit his tongue.

They have thinking that, for decades. They are slowly learning, otherwise...

Personally I'm thrilled....

Thrilled that the MSM continues to chase itself down into the hole of obscurity and irrelevance.

Thrilled that more and more people are turning a blind/critical eye to their overt attempts at manipulation.

When they hit rock bottom, the impact will be so severe, yet so shocking to them, it will be truly a sight to behold. It's going to be better than any hit TV drama when it comes to entertainment value. I hope we do get all those mental hospitals opened up in time, going to be a lot of MSM personalities looking for a place to stay because they fell for all their own programming.

Many of the local newspapers, TV and radio stations are on the level. But 90% of the Mainstream Media is owned by just 6 holding companies. Those holding companies put out "talking points" that 90% of U.S. news outlets spew to the public. I'm sure you've seen the video examples?

They are better(the locals), but I still catch them from time to time disseminating their national partner talking points down to the local populace.

The reality is that they are all just mouthpieces, reading from the prompter, pushing a bunch of junk onto the population. It's magnitudes less, but still the same old BS.

I watch local news for local weather, anything else is just the same old uninformed, unintelligent parroting of some narrative that merits absolutely no acknowledgement to the actual factual reality of the world.

You almost got it right. If you think this happens only with the left you haven't been paying attention for the past decades.

Well, the bottom line is,

WE WON!

And we will keep on winning too



Congratulations to those of you that have minds capable of reasoning out just what the truth was!
A pat on the back for each of you

Sold a lot of papers

The reality is people now see clearly, well we hope they do, how manipulative and dishonest the main stream media is and was

How much lying have they gotten away with

Alternatives exist fortunately

We haven't won, quite yet.

These guys are still in business, and they still have a following.

They have throngs of "academics" at their disposal, and a naive base of rabid consumers...

Many of us see things for what they are... far too many though, are still blinded by the spectacle.

Most people know this, I've known it before the election... And just as much of the right takes talk radio for its word.

Both sides enjoy their respective reaffirm (a lot of each at least).

I have to weed through BS and hyperbole from both to be honest.
