The NY Times takes hands-off journalism to a laughable new level with Trump’s testing headline

Trump is now saying he should be lavished with praise for doing a “very good job” if the Federal government manages to limit our nation’s death toll to somewhere between 2-4 times the number of Americans killed in the Vietnam War.

Must…follow…the…script…

Blech:

Nevertheless, New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker saw what he wanted to see:

The grim-faced president who appeared in the White House briefing room for more than two hours on Tuesday evening beside charts showing death projections of hellacious proportions was coming to grips with a reality he had long refused to accept….

A crisis that Mr. Trump had repeatedly asserted was “under control” and hoped would “miraculously” disappear has come to consume his presidency, presenting him with a challenge that he seems only now to be seeing more clearly.

None of this is true! None of this is remotely true! He pulled a script out of the filing cabinet and filled in Trump’s name and then called it a day and went of to get a cocktail. God damn these people.

Here is how you write a headline, NYT:

“We”

When minority reporters and others from nontraditional-for-elite-newspapers backgrounds (no school near Boston!) argue that their personal experience gives them a necessary and useful perspective on the subjects they are or should be covering, elite editors scream BIAS at them, but when “our” friends and relatives are getting sick and dying…

“We are all actually living the story we are covering,” says NYT editor @deanbaquet. “We all have relatives and friends whose lives have been upended. Our own lives have been profoundly altered.” https://bit.ly/2wWifks

A reminder that Trump is not the problem. Trump is not the disease, merely a symptom, a particularly painful syphilitic boil on the sphincter perhaps, but just a symptom of Republican rule.

But don’t worry, Joe Biden is going to have a phone call with Trump and then they’ll sort everything out.
