New York Times Bullied Into Deleting Tweet By Outraged Liberals

Published

The former paper of record was forced to delete a Tweet Thursday after users of the microblogging platform deemed it “insensitive.”

“We’re sorry for this tweet. In retrospect, a Twitter poll is insensitive in light of the gravity of this hearing. We’ve deleted it,” the New York Times said, attaching a screenshot of the Tweet in question.

The Times’ followers, it seems, were unhappy with a poll asking whether readers found Christine Blasey Fored’s testimony against Brett Kavanaugh in Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing credible. Holding the “wrong” opinion on matters like this would constitute wrong-think, a serious crime on the political left.

Among the outraged was Verge editor Ruben Salvadori.

“Not ok @nytopinion,” he Tweeted.

He was joined by ex-Forbes staff writer Clare O’Connor.

“This is sick!” she said.

Jodi Jacobon piled on.

“where is the WTAF button for this question?” asked the Editor in Chief of Rewire. 

WTAF stands for “what the actual [expletive].

The Times eventually caved to the bombardment of the social justice mob, which ironically they have helped to create by turner their once-revered newspaper into a leftist rag.

Another lesson learned: no matter how politically correct one remains, the social justice crows will always want more.

Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War

The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.

Published

The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.

Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.

A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.

These are some very dishonest people, folks.
