Mark Lennihan After gaslighting on the economy, over a thousand New York Times workers claim conditions make office work impossible.
It is bad enough when the elitists in the media condescend to their readership, acting as if the citizens of the country are monosyllabic drones ready to swallow any bit of treacle delivered by the various outlets . But what is normally amusing or easily dismissed pablum becomes intolerable when you witness these outlets treating their own reality as a far different experience than what is being sold.
Two events played over the last couple of days to display this repellent double standard.
Yesterday was slated to be the day when The New York Times saw its complete workforce returning to work in the paper’s offices. Mostly. This week, the workers were to be required to spend a minimum of three days on-site, as our country’s alleged cultural center – New York City – is still shrugging off the last vestiges of the pandemic lockdown . The supposed educated class running the city was last to grasp the folly of the COVID clampdowns.
The other reality to land was today’s announcement that inflation had actually increased in the month of August. This was after news outlets attempted to fog their audience into believing that there was no inflation in July . (Prices were, in fact, still rising, just not as rapidly as before.) Now, suddenly, reporters had to find ways of turning this into less bad news, as the reports were “unexpectedly” worse , as usual. Here is where the two realities collide on the front step of the New York Times building.
Joining the crowd of news outlets, the Times delivered today its version of the revisionist spreadsheet, trying to insist that, while not great news, it still was not dire. You […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
