Former NYT Executive Editor ADMITS: Paper ‘Unmistakably anti-Trump’

Published

on

The former executive editor of New York Times has slammed the paper for its anti-Trump bias and obvious work as a public relations arm of Hillary R. Clinton’s 2016 presidential bid, according to excerpts from her upcoming book.

According to Fox News, who first published the excerpts, Jill Abramson describes the paper as “unmistakably anti-Trump.”

Abramson was the executive editor of the former paper of record from 2011-2014. She was fired after at least a year’s worth of turbulence with Dean Baquet, the paper’s managing editor at the time. She bashed Baquet for turning the paper into an “opposition party.”

“Though Baquet said publicly he didn’t want the Times to be the opposition party, his news pages were unmistakably anti-Trump,” Abramson said in the book. “Some headlines contained raw opinion, as did some of the stories that were labeled as news analysis.”

Baquet has described Trump’s attacks on the press as “out of control.” But Abramson’s harsh criticism suggests that Trump’s criticism might be warranted. Baquet is now the executive editor of the paper.

Of his many clashes with Abramson, “Baquet burst out of Abramson’s office, slammed his hand against a wall and stormed out of the newsroom,” according to POLITICO. The piece also interviewed Times staffers who described Abramson as “impossible” and “very, very unpopular.”

Abramson blamed some of the paper’s biased reporting on “woke” liberal journalists and financial incentive for bashing Trump.

“Given its mostly liberal audience, there was an implicit financial reward for the Times in running lots of Trump stories, almost all of them negative: they drove big traffic numbers and, despite the blip of cancellations after the election, inflated subscription orders to levels no one anticipated,” Abramson said in the book.

“The more ‘woke’ staff thought that urgent times called for urgent measures; the dangers of Trump’s presidency obviated the old standards,” she reportedly said.

Of course, Abramson was not completely contrite, claiming that the Times, which initially reported the Clinton email scandal, “made some bad judgment calls and blew its Clinton coverage out of proportion…”

Abramson’s book is called “Merchants of Truth: The Business of News and the Fight for Facts.”

CNN’s Jeff Zucker Is Heard Spiking Hunter Biden Laptop Story in Latest Project Veritas #CNNTapes

The Hunter Biden story was off limits at CNN.

CNN President Jeff Zucker can be heard instructing the network’s personnel not to cover the bombshell Hunter Biden laptop story in leaked conference calls in October, ensuring that the network’s audience wouldn’t hear of the evidence documenting the corrupt foreign business dealings of Joe Biden’s son in Ukraine.

Wednesday’s release is the latest of Project Veritas’s #CNNTapes. James O’Keefe of the whistleblower organization confronted Zucker on CNN’s daily conference call on Tuesday, revealing to the corporate media operative that the medium had been compromised.

Zucker explains that the Hunter Biden laptop story belonged exclusively to the “rabbit hole” of Fox News, Breitbart, and the New York Post in leaked conference call audio from October 23rd.

CNN Vice President and political director David Chalian more openly places a lid on the bombshell story in the leaked conference call, glossing over the reports of Biden family corruption and stating it was “obvious” that CNN wouldn’t cover it.

Obviously we’re not going with the New York Post story right now on Hunter Biden, which seems to be giving its marching orders to Fox News and the right wing echo chamber and what to talk about today…

Another CNN Vice President, David Vigilante, questions why any corporate media reporters are retweeting the story at all, suggesting it should be completely and totally ignored.

What in the world are Maggie Haberman and Jake Sherman doing retweeting that story?

The Hunter Biden laptop story may be the most censored news report in American history, with Big Tech platforms such as Twitter and Facebook going to unprecedented lengths in order to purge mention of it from their platforms.
