The New York Times is reportedly “blocking” its reporters from appearing on certain programs aired by MSNBC and CNN; saying specific shows are simply “too partisan” when covering political issues.
“The New York Times is reportedly blocking its reporters from appearing on liberal cable news programs such as MSNBC’s ‘The Rachel Maddow Show’ and ‘CNN Tonight’ with Don Lemon because they’re ‘too partisan,’ but critics think the Gray Lady needs to look in the mirror,” reports Fox News.
“This isn’t a news story, it’s a sitcom plot. The nation’s most liberal paper is suddenly concerned that the wacky network filled on air with its employees might be too far left,” said Media Research Center’s Dan Gainor. “The Times is liberal on the opinion and news pages on every major issue facing the nation — from abortion to taxes. Yet, MSNBC is even further left? Does anyone at The Times read their own paper?”
“INCONSISTENT, INCOHERENT, AND POORLY CONCEIVED”: AS THE TIMES CLAMPS DOWN ON REPORTERS GOING ON MSNBC, IS THIS A LIBERAL-MEDIA WAR?” asked Vanity Fair.
“The Times has come to ‘prefer,’ as sources put it, that its reporters steer clear of any cable-news shows that the masthead perceives as too partisan, and managers have lately been advising people not to go on what they see as highly opinionated programs,” adds the article.
The New York Times stunned readers just last week, publishing an op-ed that blamed America’s “unlivable cities” on “wealthy liberals.”
An op-ed published in the New York Times last Wednesday blamed the horrific conditions in America’s cities on “wealthy liberals,” saying their policies are directly related to rising crime, homelessness, and public drug use.
“To live in California at this time is to experience every day the cryptic phrase that George W. Bush once used to describe the invasion of Iraq: ‘Catastrophic success.’ The economy here is booming, but no one feels especially good about it. When the cost of living is taken into account, billionaire-brimming California ranks as the most poverty-stricken state, with a fifth of the population struggling to get by. Since 2010, migration out of California has surged,” writes columnist Farhad Manjoo.

BUSTED! NY Times ATTACKS 'Absent' Pompeo During Secret RESCUE MISSION
The New York Times viciously slammed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Tuesday, accusing the senior Trump aide of being “thousands of miles away” during the President’s Iran speech; despite the fact he was in North Korea negotiating the release of three prisoners.
According to Fox News, the Times blasted Pompeo for not being on hand as the President announced his decision to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear agreement; saying he was missing at a “key moment” of the Trump presidency.
“Senior State Department officials were momentarily speechless on Tuesday when asked why Mr. Pompeo did not delay his trip by a day to be in Washington during Mr. Trump’s Iran deal announcement,” writes the Times.
“The absence of Mr. Pompeo and other top State Department officials left perplexed European diplomats privately complaining that they were having trouble getting answers from Washington,” the author added.
It became clear by Wednesday that the reason Pompeo was “thousands of miles away” was to oversee the transfer of three American prisoners from North Korean officials to US custody.

BUSTED! NY Times Suggests Nikki Haley Bought $52k Curtains, Actually Purchased by Obama Admin
The New York Times found itself in hot-water from readers across the country Friday after the newspaper published an extremely misleading headline regarding UN ambassador Nikki Haley.
The Times published an article Thursday titled “Nikki Haley’s View of New York Is Priceless. Her Curtains? $52,701,” suggesting the ambassador purchased lavish curtains for her New York City residence.
“The State Department bought the custom, mechanized curtains for Ms. Haley’s New York resident during a time of cost-cutting,” adds the author.
It isn’t until six paragraphs later that the author admits the window dressings were actually purchased in 2016 and authorized by the Obama administration.
“This seems like a pretty important paragraph that we should get to the bottom of before calling them ‘Nikki Haley’s $52,000 curtains,’” writes a reporter for the Washington Post.
