A Washington political editor of the New York Times has been demoted by his newspaper after a series of comments made that incensed the media titan’s liberal readers. Jonathan Weisman had made comments critical of insurgent progressive Democrats such as Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar.
Weisman became a target for criticism on the left when he claimed the the two legislators weren’t actually from the midwestern constituencies they represent in Congress.
The longtime mainstream media journalist has an editorial stance that favors establishment Democrats against insurgent leftists seeking to exert influence within the party.
Weisman also became a target of racism accusations when he blamed Justice Democrats, a left-wing caucus, for mounting a primary challenge of a black Democrat. He completely failed to mention that the primary challenger they endorsed was also black.

Weisman went on to angrily email the Justice Democrats-endorsed candidate, arrogantly claiming that she owed him an apology after correcting his erroneous assertion that she wasn’t black.
Weisman was stripped of his editor position, which involved overseeing the New York Times’ network of contributors in Washington D.C, after a meeting with the paper’s executive editor, Dean Baquet. He’ll be allowed to stay on with the New York Times in a reduced and perhaps ceremonial position.
He was compelled to grovel for forgiveness, admitting that he had “embarrassed the newspaper” after his demotion.
In brief interview, Weisman said: “I accept Dean’s judgment. I think he’s right to do what he’s doing. I embarrassed the newspaper, and he had to act.”

If Weisman can be called a victim of “political correctness,” he’s nothing more than a casualty of his own creation. The mainstream media propagandist has written at length falsely accusing Donald Trump of encouraging neo-Nazis and puppeteering a renaissance of racial hatred throughout the United States.
The disgraced editor now faces a lengthy, if not insurmountable, climb to regain his prestigious status with the media elite.
CRINGE: CNN State Media Opines of “Joe Biden’s Arms Embracing America”
CNN daytime host David Chalian spoke of Joe Biden in worshipful terms in a Tuesday segment, claiming that a display of lights intended to memorialize COVID casualties represented the 78-year old President-elect embracing the United States in his arms.
Chalian claimed that President Trump was disgraced, ignoring the fact that polls with a track record of accuracy in the 2020 election reveal the outgoing President’s approval rating is over 50%.
“Those lights that are just shooting out from the Lincoln Memorial… It’s almost like extensions of Joe Biden’s arms embracing America. It’s a moment where the new President came to town and convened the country in this moment of remembrance, outstretching his arms.”
Is this the incoming President, or Chalian’s father? North Korean state propaganda would be jealous.
Joe Biden has opted for the light display in the absence of an inauguration crowd, with the incoming President eschewing a traditional inauguration on account of coronavirus concerns. It’s expected that Biden will speak of ‘unity’ in his Wednesday address, but such a goal is more easily attained through action than through words.
CNN is poised to take on the role of a state propaganda outlet, carrying water for the neoliberal establishment and the globalist elite. Figures within the mainstream media organization expect its ratings and audience to crumble and decline, no longer possessing a captivated liberal audience eager for content targeting President Trump with predictable hitpieces.
