The New York Times continues to cement its status as one of the most dishonest mainstream media outlets in America.
Ginia Bellafante recently wrote a piece where she used the death of Joe Joyce, owner of Brooklyn’s JJ Bubbles bar, to take a shot at Fox News and Trump.
On March 1, Joyce and his spouse went on a cruise to Spain. Joyce was an avid viewer of Fox News, namely Sean Hannity. The Fox News host went on air to say that Americans were getting “unnecessarily” scared by “this new hoax.”
Bellafante wrote that Fox “took the virus more seriously, but the Joyces were long gone by then.” In sum, Joyce died because he listened to Fox according to Bellafante.
But as the New York Post noted, “The Joyces were actually long gone by the time Hannity said those words, March 9. And there’s no indication their decision had anything to do with Fox or that Joyce contracted the coronavirus on the cruise.”
Ironically, Bellante herself downplayed the virus.
“I fundamentally don’t understand the panic,” Bellante tweeted on February 27, 2020. “Virus is not deadly in vast majority of cases.”
I fundamentally don't understand the panic: incidence of the disease is declining in China. Virus is not deadly in vast majority of cases. Production and so on will slow down and will obviously rebound. cc: @opinion_joe

In fact, many people, which includes Governor Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Bill de Blasio, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also did not take the Wuhan virus threat seriously at that time. However, the Times, like most of the mainstream media, has been trying to scapegoat Trump and conservative outlets for not taking the Wuhan virus seriously.
“Arizona Man Dies After Taking Chemical in Coronavirus Treatment Touted by President Trump,” a Time magazine headline read. This case was about a man who ingested fish-tank cleaner containing chloroquine phosphate.
It’s become clear that mainstream media has an agenda that is all about attacking Trump and advancing globalist narratives instead of actually reporting on the news.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
