If we think that Trump is responsible for the rise in world oil prices, then he can reasonably be given credit for the uptick in investment that has occurred during his administration; otherwise, there is not much for him to boast about.

The New York Times has some 100 percent uncut pro-US ideology to push under the guise of criticizing Trump, and no amount of basic historical facts will get in its way.

Ask the New York Times to append a disclosure to its December 11 op-ed that its authors were funded by someone with a major financial interest in attacking Cristina Kirchner.
Should the New York Times have disclosed that the author of a piece about government propaganda runs a group overwhelmingly funded by the US government?

It’s wrong in the ethical sense for the New York Times to implicitly accept as normal politics a refusal to allow democracy to undermine ethnic supremacy.
As an example of how “sweeping progressive ideas” have historically failed, a New York Times op-ed points to “Michael Dukakis in 1988”—despite Dukakis having been the Platonic ideal of “carefully constructed proposals of centrists.”
The New York Times lamented the expansion of America’s “forever wars” overseas without once noting that every major war mentioned is one the editorial board has itself endorsed.

“Lowering taxes is, at heart, what makes a Republican a Republican,” the New York Times told us. The problem with this assertion is that the Republican plans actually raise taxes for close to half of middle-income families.

FAIR thanks the activists who contacted the New York Times, and the Times for correcting the record.

If an elected official had tried to orchestrate this kind of obvious, contrived damage control, the New York Times would be the first to cry foul—one hopes—and deservedly so.

“It’s saying that it’s OK to continue business as usual, when we know that our planet is in climate chaos because of anthropogenic causes, human-induced causes, of messing with our Earth systems and our Earth cycles.”

Ask the New York Times to correct the claim that Herman and Chomsky’s Manufacturing Consent was criticized for “having soft-pedaled evidence of genocide” that hadn’t happened yet.

For many in the Western press, de facto Saudi ruler Mohammed bin Salman’s self-serving power grab is the action of a bold “reformer,” a roguish bad boy doing the messy but essential work of “reforming” the kingdom.

Times are tough in Middle America, but the New York Times says there’s hope on the horizon — conveniently packaged in the economic boom of e-commerce.

A review of New York Times articles, columns, op-eds and reports shows a clear emphasis on documenting and condemning perceived suppression of conservative voices at American universities,

When it was announced that several journalists would travel with Sen. Bernie Sanders in October for a hospital tour of Canada to learn about its single-payer system, one question immediately sprang to mind: What would corporate media do to smear universal healthcare this time?
Media are now peddling a new and particularly dubious angle: equating single-payer with GOP efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act as similarly “extreme” alternatives.
For more than a century, the Times has played the same role in Democratic politics—defending the party’s Big Money wing against populist encroachments. But rarely has the paper’s pleading on behalf of elite interests in the Democratic Party been as frenetic as it has lately.

Corporate media have a long history of lamenting wars they themselves helped sell the American public, but it’s rare so many wars and so much hypocrisy are distilled into one editorial.
“Standing by” is not what the United States did during the Indonesian genocide of 1965–66; rather, it actively supported the massacres, which were applauded at the time by the New York Times.
New York Times columnist Bret Stephens apparently knows literally nothing about the economy, and is so ignorant he doesn’t even know how little he knows.

As Hurricane Harvey wreaked devastating flooding across southeast Texas, there was relatively little focus on a group that is especially susceptible to natural disasters: the poor.

Since economics won’t sell the TPP, the alternative is to make it a geopolitical pact, with the main target being China. The main problem with seeing the TPP as a pact designed as a weapon against China, though, is that it doesn’t seem to have been designed that way.
September 21, 2017
The New York Times gave an enormous platform to a hawkish think tank that is funded by the US government and by top weapons corporations, letting it absurdly claim, without any pushback, that the gargantuan US military—by far the largest in the world—has been “underfunded.”

Far more egregious than a simple conflict of interest problem is that the New York Times decided to give an opinion column to someone linked to murder, money-laundering and a whole host of other legally and ethically repugnant behavior.
Please contact the New York Times and ask it to correct the false claim that the United States tried to restore the democratically elected president of Honduras.

People can have reasonable differences of opinion on trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), but why is it that the proponents have to insist, with zero evidence, that not doing the deal was an economic disaster?
The New York Times is again spreading the absurd myth that House Speaker Paul Ryan and other Republicans want a free market in healthcare.
