We have brought them to heel.
The New York Times’ publisher released a letter to reader on Friday promising to “reflect” on this year’s coverage of the election so that it may better report to “America and the world” honestly. Arthur O. Sulzberger Jr., the publisher, wrote to the Times readers asking for their continued support.
“We cannot deliver the independent, original journalism for which we are known without the loyalty of our subscribers,” the letter states.
This follows the Times’ editor, Liz Spayd, featured poll showing Hillary Clinton with an 84 percent chance of winning the election on November 8th. The New York Times shilled for Clinton’s agenda as well.
Spayd compared stories about President-elect Donald Trump and Clinton and found that the paper made Clinton look altogether appealing and made Trump look absolutely incapable in every capacity.
Spayd wrote, “Readers are sending letters of complaint at a rapid rate. Here’s one that summed up the feelings succinctly, from Kathleen Casey of Houston: “Now, that the world has been upended and you are all, to a person, in a state of surprise and shock, you may want to consider whether you should change your focus from telling the reader what and how to think, and instead devote yourselves to finding out what the reader (and nonreaders) actually think.”
In one of the Wikileaks email dumps, it was revealed that the Times was speaking with the Clinton Campaign with the subject matter of their stories as well as their release dates.
In an email with the subject “Re: Planned Parenthood letter”, the Clinton Campaign’s Brian Fallon wrote:
“After hitting a wall with other outlets, NYT will do a story about DiSanto. Adam Jentleson in reid’s office is giving a statement saying the connection is troubling and raises questions. Could pop this weekend.”
The Daily Caller reported in October:
Several days after The Times article was published, Grassley pushed back aggressively on the accusation. He said that DiSanto was not his source and that the source was known to the staffs of two other prominent Democrats, Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy and Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings.
The lawyer for the whistleblower was also known to the Democrats and was a former staffer for California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Grassley said.
Other emails hacked from Podesta show the Clinton campaign coordination with Reid and other Democratic senators.
In a Nov. 9 email, Miguel Rodriguez, a former Clinton State Department official who know works as Abedin’s lawyer, informed others at the campaign that Reid was set to “hit Grassley” during a speech on the floor of the Senate.
“Have mentioned to Cheryl — Reid’s staff intends to do more than this one floor speech,” Rodriguez wrote.
“We also approach the incoming Trump administration without bias,” Sulzberger said.
