NYT Editor Bill Keller: Gee, That FoxNews Sure Is Creating a Climate of "Corrosive Cynicism" By Claiming To Be Non-Partisan When In Fact It's Biased

I can't really append enough ?'s and !'s to this statement, so I won't.

My gripe against Fox is not that it is conservative. The channel’s pulpit-pounding pundits, with the exception of the avuncular Mike Huckabee, are too shrill for my taste, but they are not masquerading as impartial newsmen. Nor am I indignant that Fox News is the cultural home of the Republican Party and a nonstop Obama roast. Partisan journalism, while not my thing, has a long tradition. Though I do wonder if the folks at Fox appreciate that this genre is more European than American.

My complaint is that Fox pretends very hard to be something it is not, and in the process contributes to the corrosive cynicism that has polarized our public discourse.

I doubt that people at Fox News really believe their programming is “fair and balanced” -- that’s just a slogan for the suckers -- but they probably are convinced that what they have created is the conservative counterweight to a media elite long marinated in liberal bias. They believe that they are doing exactly what other serious news organizations do; they just do it for an audience that had been left out before Fox came along.

He then goes on to claim that he and his fellow leftists in the media -- all the media, apparently, save Fox -- live by a "code" of ethics that prevents them from being biased, so they're different, see.

A few days ago Glenn Reynolds discussed the "code" of journalistic ethics on display on the NYT's front pages.

Readers of last Sunday’s front page, for example, were informed that “In Hopeful Sign, Health Spending Is Flattening Out.”

Hopeful? Well, maybe. The article is full of caveats and to-be-sures like this: “The growth rate mostly slowed as millions of Americans lost insurance coverage along with their jobs. Worried about job security, others may have feared taking time off work for doctor’s visits or surgical procedures, or skipped nonurgent care when money was tight.” Or this: “Some experts caution that there remains too little data to determine whether the current slowdown will become permanent, or whether it is merely a blip caused by the economy’s weakness.”

But, we’re told, “[M]any other health experts say that there is just enough data to start detecting trends — even if the numbers remain murky, and the vast complexity of the national health care market puts definitive answers out of reach.”

At this point, an editor might have spiked the story, commenting that all we’ve got are dueling experts who admit that they don’t really know what’s going on amid their “murky” numbers.

While that might have been good use of editorial discretion, it wouldn’t have advanced the narrative about cost declines, which is this: “If so, it was happening just as the new health care law was coming into force, and before the Supreme Court could weigh in on it or the voters could pronounce their own verdict at the polls.”

There’s your narrative: ObamaCare is working, and the Supreme Court should back off. Oh, and voters, don’t be mean to the Democrats who rammed this down your throat.

They then went on to explain that an Israeli-Iranian war could be averted, if, and only if, the religiously-crazed, radicalized Israelis can make themselves more open to flexibility and reason like the Iranians, and yes, you read that right.

18 "What do you mean, 'pro-terrorist', fluffy?"

Let me tell you.

I saw an interview several years back. When asked, Keller was emphatic that the NYT was not neutral in the War On Terror. He wouldn't make the gutsy call and say which side he was on. I do recall the Times leaking a story about SWIFT transactions being monitored, refusing a White House request to sit on the story.

Providing intel to the other side is bad, as in not good.

Bill Keller is anti American.

25 All through the '90s, before I lost my stomache for it, the NYT treated every single gun related story like this: "The assailant, wielding a machine gun" or "The mugger, using an automatic gun".

Every gun was always a "machine gun". I actually cancelled when I read a long convoluted murky editorial that started out with the question, "Should handguns be outlawed?" and ended by somehow demagouging that you were "Un-American" if you supported the 2nd amendment. Really.

36 An excerpt about the Dhimmi scrunt.


The defense attorney who wore a traditional Islamic outfit during the rowdy arraignment of the accused Sept. 11 terrorists is defending her courtroom appeal that other women in the room wear more "appropriate" clothing to the proceedings -- out of respect for her client's Muslim beliefs.
Cheryl Bormann, counsel for defendant Walid bin Attash, attended the arraignment Saturday dressed in a hijab, apparently because her client insisted on it. She further requested that the court order other women to follow that example so that the defendants do not have to avert their eyes "for fear of committing a sin under their faith."

At a press conference Sunday at Guantanamo Bay, Bormann said she dresses in a hijab at "all times" when she meets with her client "out of respect" for his beliefs. Asked why she requested other women do the same, Bormann said, "When you're on trial for your life, you need to be focused."

Bormann, who is not Muslim, claimed the issue came up several years ago, when a paralegal wore "very short skirts" and it became a distraction for the defendants. She said that on Saturday, "somebody" was also dressed "in a way that was not in keeping with my client's religious beliefs."

"If because of someone's religious beliefs, they can't focus when somebody in the courtroom is dressed in a particular way, I feel it is incumbent upon myself as a counsel to point that out and ask for some consideration from the prosecution," she said. "Suffice to say it was distracting to members of the accused."

54 De Niro, talking to hopelessly biased NBC reporter David Gregory, answered if he was "satisfied" with Obama's first term:
You know, it's very easy to criticize people. I think he's done a good job. He's done other things that maybe he should have been a little stronger about, people will complain. But it's not easy to be President of the United States. And he – and that was pointed out in the New York Times, I think in the last Sunday Week in Review, by Peter Bergen, about all the things he did, as far as Bin Laden and other things that he stepped up – being a liberal president, supposedly – that were effective. Not always – you know, there's always the negative side of that. But he took the chance to do it, and he did it. And ultimately, with Bin Laden. And I think he's doing – I give him credit, and I hope he does – I know he'll do better in the next four years, when he won't have to worry whether he's going to be elected or not.
To De Niro's credit, he managed to turn the standard celebrity talking points regarding Obama into a greatest hits montage of excuses:
* He'll do better in his next four years
* Stop criticizing him
* Did you know being the President is hard?
* He got Osama. Did we mention he got Osama? 'Cuz we should definitely mention it more than once.

De Niro really is a stupid bastard

55 12. Institutionalized


Sometimes I try to do things and it just doesn't work out the way I wanted to.
I get real frustrated and I try hard to do it and I take my time and it doesn't work out the way I wanted to.
It's like I concentrate real hard and it doesn't work out.
Everything I do and everything I try never turns out.
It's like I need time to figure these things out.
But there's always someone there going.

Hey Mike:
You know we've been noticing you've been having a lot of problems lately.
You know, maybe you should get away and maybe you should talk about it, maybe you'll feel a lot better

And I'm all like:
Oh nah it's ok you know I'll figure it out, just leave me alone I'll figure it out.
You know I'm just working on it by myself.

And they go:
Well you know if you want to talk about it I'll be here you know and you'll probably feel a lot better if you talk about it. So why don't you talk about it?

And I go:
No I don't want to I'm okay, I'll figure it out myself.
But they just keep bugging me and they just keep bugging me, and it builds up inside.

So you're gonna be institutionalized
You'll come out brainwashed with bloodshot eyes
You won't have anyting to say
They'll brainwash you until you see their way.

I'm not crazy - Institutionalized
You're the one that's crazy - Institutionalized
You're driving me crazy - Institutionalized
They stuck me in an institution,
Said it was the only solution,
to give me the needed professional help,
to protect me from the enemy - Myself

I was in my room and I was just like staring at the wall thinking about everything.
But then again I was thinking about nothing
And then my mom came in and I didn't even know she was there.
She called my name and I didn't hear her and then she started screaming: MIKE! MIKE!
And I go:
What, what's the matter?
She goes:
What's the matter with you?
I go:
There's nothing wrong mom.
She's all:
Don't tell me that, you're on drugs!
I go:
No mom I'm not on drugs I'm okay, I was just thinking you know, why don't you get me a Pepsi.
She goes:
NO you're on drugs!
I go:
Mom I'm okay, I'm just thinking.
She goes:
No you're not thinking, you're on drugs! Normal people don't be acting that way!
I go:
Mom just get me a Pepsi, please
All I want is a Pepsi, and she wouldn't give it to me
All I wanted was a Pepsi, just one Pepsi, and she wouldn't give it to me.
Just a Pepsi.

They give you a white shirt with long sleeves
Tied around you're back, you're treated like thieves
Drug you up because they're lazy
It's too much work to help a crazy

I'm not crazy - Institutionalized
You're the one who's crazy - Institutionalized
You're driving me crazy - Institutionalized
They stuck me in an institution,
Said it was the only solution,
to give me the needed professional help,
to protect me from the enemy - Myself

I was sitting in my room when my mom and my dad came in and they pulled up a chair and they sat down.
They go:
Mike, we need to talk to you.
And I go:
Okay what's the matter?
They go:
Me and your mom have been noticing lately that you've been having a lot of problems,
And you've been going off for no reason and we're afraid you're going to hurt somebody,
And we're afraid you're going to hurt yourself.
So we decided that it would be in you're best interest if we put you somewhere
Where you could get the help that you need.
And I go:
Wait, what are you talking about, WE decided!?
MY best interests?! How do you know what MY best interest is?
How can you say what MY best interest is? What are you trying to say, I'M crazy?
When I went to YOUR schools, I went to YOUR churches,
I went to YOUR institutional learning facilities?! So how can you say I'M crazy?

They say they're gonna fix my brain
Alleviate my suffering and my pain
But by the time they fix my head
Mentally I'll be dead

I'm not crazy - Institutionalized
You're the one who's crazy - Institutionalized
You're driving me crazy - Institutionalized
They stuck me in an institution,
Said it was the only solution,
to give me the needed professional help,
to protect me from the enemy - Myself

Doesn't matter, I'll probably get hit by a car anyways.

Bill O'Rally is all about the folks(!).

So what's left? The Saturday morning business shows? The Five? The Judge? Stossel?? Gimme a break.

Is Keller talking about the panelists themselves? Panels that invariably include one hardcore leftist or a DC press corps approved journalist who pretends s/he isn't a lefty?

Keller's griping is obsolete as it sounds like it's straight out of 2005. I wonder why the New York Times and some media types (Brokaw, Leslie Stahl most recently) feel compelled to bring it up. Something in their own coverage is getting to them.

79 As soon as you read "My gripe against Fox is not that it is conservative," you may rest fully assured that his gripe against Fox is that it is conservative.

This kind either lies as a matter of course, or is so completely lacking in self-awareness that he doesn't know why he pathologically hates Fox - or more likely, both. I rest my case.

If only those religously crazed radical Isrealis would just stop insisting on the right to survive as a country, then war could be averted.

171 I cannot fathom how team VWRC replicates what the leftoids pulled.

I'd deleted most of what I was going to say. I will try to expand on it:

It all boils down to "VWRC". The VWRC has that name out of irony. It derives out of something Hillary Clinton once said of us. As we all knew at the time - the Right in the United States (and the Anglosphere, and Europe) may be "vast" and "right wing", but it is no "conspiracy". Say we agree not to count McCain and points Left as members of what you're calling "team VWRC". That leaves, in the American Right, the "alternative Right", the Tea Party, the libertarians, the Christians (whom I call "Conservatives"), and the mainstream Republicans. Mitt / Willard Romney is the last of these.

Of the above, I am on the alt-right - I am, in several important respects, Derbyshire Junior. (I am considering "David Staffordshire" as my next sock.)

But back to the above. Before you can start a movement, you have to have a vanguard that agrees upon what the movement is.

I said that I am on the alt-right, myself, so I may as well start with that. I am not blind to my compadres drawn to the alt-right - many of them are creepy as hell. Would you like the replacement for Political Correctness to concentrate on the Zionist menace? Didn't the Right in Europe already try that once?

Okay, so we don't want the VWRC run by the Stormfront crowd. Who's next - oh yes, the Tea Party. Show us the Birth Certificate! Again! And again! And while we're at it, let's run the footage of WTC 7 ...

(This is where I'd bring up the libertarians; but the idea that people in a one-man-one-vote society would ever vote for the Quit Giving Us Free Stuff party is just laughable.)

How about the Conservatives? Let's ban abortion, or at least make it real hard. For poor people. Rich people - smart people - they can keep their abortions; they don't need to do the breeding. Plus we want to keep pissing off the rich and smart people! The demographics of the next generation can look after itself. And by the way, we also have Unanswered Questions, this time about biological science. (Geological, too, I gather.)

And then there's the Party of Lincoln. The protection racket. Vote for us or... or... or a Democrat will win! Once in office, we'll be so shit-scared of the Left that we'll deliver up more education spending (it's us, so it's conservative!) and more healthcare entitlements. Anything - anything to prevent the Democrats from winning!

No; no. I'm afraid the future is DOOM. And boning. Mostly the d.... okay, the boning.

176 You have to admit that having helped elect the JEF, the MFM and the NYT (birm) found a wonderful side effect -- there are no longer any US deaths in the ME, so they got to discontinue those tacky daily soldier death toll counters on the front pages.

Also, there are no homeless people any more in the US, unless one sneaks into an OWS camp to create mayhem in Utopia.

198 So, what the NYT fool think about MSNBC? The preoccupation libs has with FNC is so tired. The attacks long ago failed to achieve their purpose, with FNC on top and CNN at historic ratings lows. Continued attacks have become irrelevant, in fact. Fox never succeeded at supplanting AM radio and the Internet as an opinion driver for conservatives. Their heyday was in the early years of conflicts starting with 9/11, when their visuals were a compelling magnet amidst high drama and so were continually discussed. They are less of a driver for conservative thought right now than they have ever been since right before Monica Lewinsky. They are, after all, a news agency. Their influence remains event-driven, rising and falling accordingly.

222 There was a list on the net today (NRO or Instapundit, I forget which) of 50 possible VP picks.Besides the obvious (Portman, Christie, Rubio) and the not so obvious (Martinez) the onethat jumped out at me wasMarsha Blackburn,congress critter from Nashville TN. Solid conservative,experienced (five terms in Congress), reported as a good speaker and campaigner. Some fundraising ethics issues a few years agocould be a drawback.
I think the bestVPs- both for a campaign and once in office-are the ones pickedbecause of a personal match. Dubya picked Cheney because they liked and respected each other. No problems between them in eithercampaign. McCain picked Palin as a gimmick.Not a bad toss of the dice, given the situation, but the lack ofwarmth between them hurt the campaign. Depending on how cynicalI feel, I thinkBarry picked Biden because Joe issuch a likeable guy- or because Biden's intelligence didn't intimidate Barry .

Just had to pop into the thread to say hang on. Is this the same New York Times that just last week was claiming that it recognized it might have been just the teensy bit biased during Obama's election campaign in 08, but now they're all better because they've fixed themselves? THAT New York Times? I'm sorry, but their credibility was shot years ago. They're finally figuring it out now -- proving they're as slow on the uptake as Joe Biden trying to do algebra -- so they've gone into full-fledged leftist projection mode. What they don't realize is that everyone already considers them a joke, except for the hipsters and academics who still think print media are a hallowed shrine of objectivity.
