A newspaper published in New York City and distributed worldwide that was first published as New-York Daily Times in September 1851, and is often referred to as the Old Grey Lady. The paper’s motto, “All the News That’s Fit to Print“, appears in the upper left-hand corner of the front page. It has become a “propaganda megaphone” to peddle the establishment’s narrative (be it war, cultural marxism, medical tyranny, etc.) and constantly promotes an extreme leftist point of view. Former editor Jill Abramson admitted the paper had an “unmistakably anti-Trump” bias. Declining in popularity and credibility, The NY Times has fallen to the third most widely circulated newspaper in the U.S. behind The USA Today and The Wall Street Journal. The paper is noted for its frequent fake news propaganda and inaccurate statements related to Christian beliefs and practices. In recent years the paper has been criticized for its openly racist and anti-Semitic viewpoints, and it has promoted far-left historical revisionism regarding U.S. history. It has also declared war on free speech.
While the paper has won 130 Pulitzer Prizes, more than any other newspaper, the pulitzer prize has long become a reward for echoing the official narrative and printing propaganda. The inaugural edition attempted to address various speculations on its purpose and positions that preceded its release:
We shall be Conservative, in all cases where we think Conservatism essential to the public good;—and we shall be Radical in everything which may seem to us to require radical treatment and radical reform. We do not believe that everything in Society is either exactly right or exactly wrong;—what is good we desire to preserve and improve;—what is evil, to exterminate, or reform.
The last Republican the New York Times endorsed for president was Dwight Eisenhower in 1956.
The paper has been derisively referred to by its critics as the New York Slimes due to its intentionally sleazy, libelous, fact-twisting and factually devoid articles and left-wing political and ideological bias in support of advancing liberal narratives. The NYT publishes 18 other newspapers, including the International Herald Tribune (based in Paris) and The Boston Globe. The parent company has suffered repeated financial crises in recent years. In 2017, the NYT abolished its public editor position.
Lies by the New York Times in the late 1950s were crucial to enslaving the nation of Cuba under mass-murdering dictator Fidel Castro, who was portrayed by the paper as an anti-communist “freedom fighter.” Before that, Pulitzer Prize-winning lies by the New York Times were crucial in helping mass-murdering dictator Joseph Stalin conceal his genocide-by-starvation perpetrated against Ukraine.
The New York Times is known to defend America’s enemies, discount terrorist acts or present stories as not to offend Islamic feelings, as with the case of American students who carried out suicide bombings in Somalia. In the NYT article “A Call to Jihad, Answered in America,” the issue was a “crisis of belonging,” “They want to belong, but who do they belong to?” Then the author states that these jihadist were “born-agains” or “fundis”, not how the rest of America describes Islamic fascism.
Conservative organizations have stated that the Times promotes the homosexual agenda because it employs homosexuals and wins praise from homosexual groups. In 2001 Richard Berke, the Times’ national political correspondent, revealed that “on any given day, three-fourths of those attending the daily meeting where it is decided what will be on the front page of the Times, are likely to be ‘not-so-closeted’ homosexuals.” In 2004, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) gave the New York Times an award for “Outstanding Newspaper Overall Coverage”, specifically citing journalist Frank Rich’s article attacking President Ronald Reagan’s record on AIDS.
In 2004, the newspaper’s ombudsman, Daniel Okrent, published a piece on the Times’ liberal bias, citing the example of its coverage of same-sex “marriage”. In 2012 again the “public editor” of the New York Times, Arthur Brisbane, accused his employers of harboring progressive bias on topics like same-sex “marriage” and the Occupy movement. Its publisher, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr. has denied the paper’s extreme leftist bias, claiming instead that the paper has an “urban” viewpoint.
In 2008, ABC journalist John Stossel claimed: “The reason the Times, and to a lesser extent the Post, are so important, and they are, is because the TV and radio – all of the media – copy it sycophantically. That’s how bias at the Times becomes bias in other media.”
Examples of types of liberal bias utilized by the New York Times include:
As further reflection of the newspaper’s liberal bias, it has been awarded the most Pulitzer Prizes of any newspaper. Leaked internal conversations have revealed many NYT staffers as what one conservative journalist called “parodies of hypersensitive liberal journalists.”
After much liberal media speculation that the Boston Marathon bombing was caused by right-wingers or tea-partiers, it was discovered that the bombing was done by two Islamic brothers. At that point, the liberal media became very sympathetic toward the bombers accused of carrying out the bombing. The New York Times wrote a piece excusing their actions since they grew up in a bad country (Chechnya).
Like everything else liberal, supporting America’s fighting men and women is a burden for the paper. If it is a sensitive matter that would endanger the lives of our troops, they dismissively shrug the concerns off and post photos of American troops abusing prisoners in Iraq. In a liberal ’cause for concern’, a New York Times reporter was kidnapped in Afghanistan by the Taliban, December 2008. The Times colluded with all the news organizations to keep it secret, not to endanger the reporter.
After the failure of the Mueller Report, The New York Times founded The 1619 Project in August 2019 to serve the Democrat Party’s’s objective of falsely painting Donald Trump as a “racist” as a key issue for the 2020 presidential election. The 1619 Project claims that the United States was founded in the year 1619 A.D. on the basis of “racism”.
In August 2018, the newspaper defended a racist, misandrist, anti-police and anti-Trump editor it had just hired, and it even defended her racism. In a blatant display of liberal double standards, while this editor’s racism was directed at white-skinned people, the NYT immediately fired another editor only a few months prior for anti-black and -gay tweets, even though that instance was not as severe as the former.
In January 2019, The New York Times wrote a sympathetic profile of Black Hebrew Israelites, a racist hate group, treating them significantly better than a group of Catholic students wearing MAGA hats, who it demonized.
Two 17-year-old Indian boys allegedly used racial slurs against a group of African-American girls and urinated on one during the game at Lawrence High School. By making race a “social construct“, the racist actions of non-white people can still be blamed on white people. New York Times columnist Nell Irvin Painter, wrote that the Indian boys were “enacting American whiteness through anti-black assault in a very traditional way.”
The “Defund the Police” movement began with an editorial by the communist mouthpiece New York Times and was immediately echoed by Hillary Clinton’s press spokesman. Together with its revisionist 1619 Project, the New York Times has been a vociferous supporter of the Marxist Black Lives Matter organization. Gatewaypundit exposed Black Lives Matter as a money laundering scheme for the Democratic National Committee.

In August 2018, reporters at The New York Times and other publications received word Tesla founder Elon Musk was relying on Jeffrey Epstein to advise him on whom to consider hiring as board chair or chief executive. Editors at the Times sent business columnist James Stewart to talk to Epstein. “I wondered why would Musk, if this is true, be using a registered sex offender to recruit new members to the board,” Stewart told The Kicker, a podcast from the Columbia Journalism Review. Stewart wrote, “He said that criminalizing sex with teenage girls was a cultural aberration and that at times in history it was perfectly acceptable.”
Stewart was not the editors’ first choice to interview Epstein further. Initially, they had asked Landon Thomas Jr., a veteran financial correspondent who had been at the Times for 16 years. Thomas knew Epstein fairly well — having first written about him in 2002. For a 2008 profile, Thomas had traveled to Epstein’s private isle in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The article largely presented Epstein as someone who solicited prostitutes, not committed sex crimes against minors. Federal agents had by then identified several dozen possible victims. The piece ran just before Epstein submitted to authorities in Florida for incarceration. It included this passage: “As his legal troubles deepened, Mr. Epstein gazed at the azure sea and the lush hills of St. Thomas in the distance, poked at a lunch of crab and rare steak prepared by his personal chef, and tried to explain how his life had taken such a turn,” Thomas wrote. “He likened himself to Gulliver shipwrecked among the diminutive denizens of Lilliput.”
After Epstein’s death the paper reported on a public apology by one of its corporate directors, Joichi Ito, who had landed millions of dollars from Epstein for the institute he leads, the MIT Media Lab. In a tweet, the paper’s media editor, Jim Windolf, said that Ito had sought funds from Epstein “a few years after Epstein got out of the Palm Beach County Jail.”
