Brazen Gaslighting by New York Times

The New York Times is beyond the familiar tactic of burying unhelpful news on the back pages. The erstwhile Paper of Record has gone full Pravda, boldly shouting outright lies.

Yesterday the front page yelled ELECTION OFFICIALS NATIONWIDE FIND NO FRAUD. The page was triumphantly tweeted by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, confirming yet again that the establishment media keeps itself in step by following the lead of the shady Gray Lady.

They must have accidently overlooked Trey Trainor, Chair of the Federal Election Commission, who confirms that the legitimacy of this year’s election is very much in doubt:

Via Newsmax:

During a Friday appearance on Newsmax TV’s “National Report,” Trainor said locations not granting observers access to watch the ballot counting process could be involved in voter fraud.

“I do believe that there is voter fraud taking place in these places,” he said. “Otherwise they would allow the observers to go in.”

“No duh,” as kids used to say. Even Blitzer should be able to figure that out.

“They have not been allowed that meaningful access,” he said, adding there has not been transparency in the election. …

“State law allows those observers to be in there,” he said, adding if the law isn’t being followed then this election is “illegitimate.”

“Nothing to see here,” responds the mainstream media.

However, even other liberal media outlets have noticed the degeneration of the NY Times. New York Magazine has published a long piece explaining why the paper has become “less dispassionate and more crusading” — i.e., why it has rejected journalism in favor of the adolescent leftist posturing you might expect of a campus publication.

Ironically, the worst thing that could happen to the NY Times is for Trump to lose the election. It has become reliant on selling Trump hatred. With the Bad Orange Man gone along with its reputation for professional journalism, the NY Times will have no product to sell.

For now, the NY Times continues to lead the MSM pack — even if it is leading a pack of lemmings off a cliff into irrelevance.
