Over the past few days, former NYT editor Jill Abramson has slammed her former newspaper for being “unmistakably anti-Trump” in preparation for the release of her new book “Merchants of Truth.”
As President Donald Trump has claimed, Abramson said the slanted coverage is a direct result of the financial benefit the struggling newspaper has seen from an increase in subscribers due to their crazed coverage of Trump.
Abramson said the Times may be motivated to slant its coverage further after the paper added more than 600,000 subscribers in the first six months after Trump took office. Overall in 2017, subscription revenues at the Times exceeded $1 billion, due in part to strong growth in digital subscriptions.
“Given its mostly liberal audience, there was an implicit financial reward for the Times in running lots of Trump stories, almost all of them negative: they drove big traffic numbers and, despite the blip of cancellations after the election, inflated subscription orders to levels no one anticipated,” Abramson wrote.
Abramson is right.
President Trump is setting economic record after economic record.
Trump’s foreign policy includes peace talks with North Korea and ending US involvement in the Syrian War.
The NY Times has spent the last two years reporting on the biggest media hoax in US history – the Russian-collusion scandal.
Now, New York Times columnist and CNN hack Frank Bruni told Brian Stelter on his Reliable Sources broadcast that there was “not any other way” to cover Trump other than in a negative fashion.
He then provides his opinion that Trump is unethical, a liar, and ignorant as proof positive that the New York Times coverage is not biased.

This is another glaring example of why people do not trust mainstream media outlets like CNN or print publications like the New York Times. They thrive on fancying themselves as the only people on the planet who are smart enough to tell the “little people” how it is. If you question them or provide evidence of their bias, you are either a Russian bot or racist.
Daily reminder…. THE MEDIA IS THE ENEMY.
