It’s nice when a former leading member of the MSM, ex-New York Times editor Jill Abramson, fesses up to the obvious: Not only is the newspaper anti-Trump, but it makes money off of hating on the president.
According to Fox News:
In a soon-to-be published book, “Merchants of Truth,” that casts a skeptical eye on the news business, Abramson defends the Times in some ways but offers some harsh words for her successor, Dean Baquet. And Abramson, who was the paper’s only female executive editor until her firing, invoked Steve Bannon’s slam that in the Trump era the mainstream media have become the “opposition party.”
“Though Baquet said publicly he didn’t want the Times to be the opposition party, his news pages were unmistakably anti-Trump,” Abramson writes, adding that she believes the same is true of the Washington Post. “Some headlines contained raw opinion, as did some of the stories that were labeled as news analysis.”
Actually, the Washington Post is even worse, driven, I suspect, by owner Jeff Bezos’s dislike of Trump.
I find that I have to read the MSM, not only for professional
If you want to get some news from the MSM, the least biased of these supposedly non-partisan newspapers are the Wall Street Journal and The Hill. Politico is biased, but not quite as bad as the Times or the Washington Post.
