Report: New York Times Journos Left “Fatigued” By Endless Social Media Controversies

The legacy news organization has been rocked with endless Twitter controversies, and they’ve taken a toll on its employees.

New reports indicate that employees of the New York Times are increasingly “fatigued” and tired of endless social media controversies involving Times writers.

Most prominently, neocon op-ed writer Bret Stephens became a target of widespread mockery after targeting a college professor for calling him a “bedbug” on Twitter. The establishment media operative went on to delete his own Twitter account, claiming that the platform brought out the “worst in humanity.”

Another longtime liberal centrist editor, Jonathan Weisman, was demoted by the Times after he used racially charged rhetoric when discussing freshman Democrats Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar. Weisman claimed the Muslim Democrats had a tenuous connection to their own congressional districts.

The Times’ publisher, A.G Sulzberger, sent a staff email about recent Twitter controversies involving Times employees. He claimed the Times wouldn’t “intimidated” by those who expose embarrassing old tweets and social media mishaps of its employees, but he asked NYT staffers to be more careful about the content they post online.

It’s rich to see the New York Times play the victim for being burned over old tweets and social media embarrassments. The “paper of record” has utilized similar tactics in hope of embarrassing conservatives, but apparently they believe they’re being unfairly targeted when independent journalists and researchers use their own reporting methods to expose them.

The Times has claimed a group of Trump supporters in online media have been working to compile humiliating tweets and posts created by its employees. Such a practice would seem to be standard procedure for liberal mainstream media operatives trying to embarrass conservatives, but the Times seems to regard it as a devious plot when they’re being targeted for the cringeworthy content of its own employees.

If getting burned for their own old tweets proves to be too excruciating for New York Times employees, they’ll always have the option of deactivating their Twitter accounts, as Bret Stephens did after effectively labelling himself a “bedbug” for life.

As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen

Right on cue.

With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.

For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”

This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.

Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”

On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”

“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.

And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.

The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
