What is the line for the New York Times?

In his book 'What Are Journalists For,' Jay Rosen writes that "The flow of information from source to public through media is not simply a matter of bringing information to light—it is about instilling citizens with an attentiveness to information that is vigilant and productive."

By now, you've heard all about Sarah Jeong, the Asian journalist who was recently hired to the New York Times editorial staff despite having several years' worth of undoubtedly racist tweets.

Andrew Sullivan penned an excellent article on the whole perplexing ordeal. He concludes:

Yes, we all live on campus now. The neo-Marxist analysis of society, in which we are all mere appendages of various groups of oppressors and oppressed, and in which the oppressed definitionally cannot be at fault, is now the governing philosophy of almost all liberal media. That's how the Washington Post can provide a platform for raw misandry, and the New York Times can hire and defend someone who expresses racial hatred. The great thing about being in the social justice movement is how liberating it can feel to give voice to incendiary, satisfying bigotry — and know that you're still on the right side of history.

Since the story blew up, Stu and I have talked about it quite a bit, so you'll know that I don't think that Jeong should be fired, largely because we've got to put an end to these insane social media lynchings. That's not what I want to talk about.

A divided house will not stand, that a kingdom divided against itself is brought desolation. In this instance, the divided house is the New York Times, and they deserve to fall.

After the Jeong incident, the newspaper released the following statement:

Her journalism and the fact that she is a young Asian woman have made her a subject of frequent online harassment. For a period of time she responded to that harassment by imitating the rhetoric of her harassers. She sees now that this approach only served to feed the vitriol that we too often see on social media.

There are so many instances of double standards within the New York Times, so many reasons that this statement reveals it as a broken house. For now, I'd like to look at one New York Times article in particular, from earlier this year following Roseanne's idiotic tweets. The article: "Roseanne' Is Gone, but the Culture That Gave Her a Show Isn't" is itself fairly alarmist—lumping all white people together as bigoted and hateful.

Well, where is the line for the New York Times?

The paper ran a handful of huffy articles decrying Roseanne's obscene racism. One perfect examples appears in an introduction to a hard news piece about the matter, "Roseanne Barr Crosses a Line, and ABC Draws One."

The now-deleted caption reads:

When people decide to let racism slide, it costs for the rest of us.

Yes, you read right:

When people decide to let racism slide, it costs for the rest of us.

The article concludes with this:

I'll be cynical again tomorrow. For now I'm glad that a corporation had an opportunity to think only of its bottom line, and chose to draw a line instead.

Well, where is the line for the New York Times?

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
