The New York Times Lies About Everything, In This Case, the Twitter Files

by | Mar 17, 2024

Jim Rutenberg and Steven Lee Myers are disgusting liars as documented by Matt Taibbi here.

Does anyone know anything else about these men? They ever done an important story that was true that you remember? Me neither. Just this, as noted by Taibbi:

Rutenberg two election cycles ago authored the seminal article on “oppositional” journalism in the Trump age. “Trump is Testing the Norms of Objectivity in Journalism” came out in summer of 2016, and was hugely influential. It said Trump was such a threat that the job going forward could no longer just be about reporting facts, but reporting facts that will “stand up to history’s judgment.”

So they lie. Both now after they die will only be remembered as dishonest propagandists on behalf of the National Security State, a disgrace to the United States of America and their families forever.
