Gee, Ya Think? It’s really never been a secret to anyone with an IQ above room temperature that the American print media have long had a bias they really haven't tried to hide. As the first female editor of the New York Times and author of “Obama: The Historic Journey,” Jill Abramson, was the paper’s executive editor from 2011-2014 until she was unceremoniously booted out of the NYT's Ivory Tower, and as was the 'woke' thing of those days, replaced with a black male. Being a good little leftist soldier that she is, she quietly excepted her station in those gotta be politically correct times.
In a piece she wrote early last year for The Guardian, Abramson fessed up that she has been so distraught by Donald Trump's ascension to the Presidency and all that has come with it, that she carrys around a Barack Obama “therapy doll” in her purse:
"It’s easy to look at what’s happening in Washington DC and despair. That’s why I carry a little plastic Obama doll in my purse. I pull him out every now and then to remind myself that the United States had a progressive, African American president until very recently. Some people find this strange, but you have to take comfort where you can find it in Donald Trump’s America."But now, despite the mental trauma, even Jill Abramson and some present news analyst can see past the end of her nose and actually admit what can unmistakably be applied to most every news outlet in the land.
A former executive editor of the New York Times says the paper’s news pages, the home of its straight-news coverage, have become “unmistakably anti-Trump.” Jill Abramson, the veteran journalist who led the newspaper from 2011 to 2014, says the Times has a financial incentive to bash the president and that the imbalance is helping to erode its credibility.
In a soon-to-be published book, “Merchants of Truth,” that casts a skeptical eye on the news business, Abramson offers some harsh words for her successor, Dean Baquet. And Abramson, who was the paper’s only female executive editor until her firing, invoked Steve Bannon’s slam that in the Trump era the mainstream media have become the “opposition party.
Though Baquet said publicly he didn’t want the Times to be the opposition party, his news pages were unmistakably anti-Trump,” Abramson adding that she believes the same is true of the Washington Post. “Some headlines contained raw opinion, as did some of the stories that were labeled as news analysis.....”Needless to say, because of Abramson's sin of truthful criticism, her invites to NY and DC liberal elite dinner parties may just have taken a really big hit. Bless Her Heart......
