The New York Times Famously Makes the Same Blunder TWICE

In 2016, the New York Times was shocked by Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton. After multiple stories from the publication claimed that Clinton would win in a landslide the paper returned with its tail between its legs making claims it would rededicate itself to understanding “all political perspectives and life experiences.”

Four years later and The Times is at it again. Coverage of the 2020 election touted the same misleading narrative that Democrats would win in a landslide, days after the elections and it’s clear they’ve just made the same mistakes twice.

The Washington Free Beacon writes:

Four years ago, the paper wrote not one but two pieces arguing Hillary Clinton and the Democrats were making major inroads in Texas thanks to the state’s growing minority population. Clinton, reporters Matt Flegenheimer and Jonathan Martin wrote, was leading “a new offensive aimed at extending her growing advantage over Donald J. Trump while bolstering down-ballot candidates in what party leaders increasingly suggest could be a sweeping victory for Democrats at every level.” Trump went on to trounce Clinton by nine points.

Fast forward to last month, when Martin promised that this time, Texas was “a true presidential battleground, and either candidate could prevail.” The result: Trump by six.

The fake news wasn’t limited to one state. The Times covered Susan Collins’s impending demise: Susan Collins Hasn’t Changed Much, but Maine Has. Collins won by nine. They claimed Republicans were botching the Senate race in deep red South Carolina, where Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison was alleged to have a real shot at unseating Republican senator Lindsey Graham thanks to the state’s growing diversity—”surprisingly competitive,” a “remarkable feat.” That kind of credulous reporting helped Harrison raise nearly $100 million for his campaign. The result: Graham won by 14 points, just 3 points weaker than the pummeling he gave his last challenger in 2014.

The results of the 2020 election gave the lie to all that, but the Times has an explanation that you will be surprised to learn shifts the blame entirely from their shoddy and misleading reporting: “Whiteness,” star Times magazine writer Nikole Hannah-Jones wrote on Wednesday, “is expandable when necessary. A lot of folks we don’t think of as white think of themselves as white because the lines have never been entirely clear. That’s the beauty of white supremacy—it is extremely adaptable.”

Identity politics has become the bread and butter for The Times but they aren’t fooling anyone.

The ultimate loser in this election The USA

America has been the “loser” ever since Bill Clinton signed the 1994 NAFTA agreement which encouraged US manufacturing to relocate overseas. Steel? GONE. Glass? GONE, Electronics? GONE. Half the Auto Industry? GONE. Most clothing? GONE. Fruit and Vegetable farmers? GONE. Prescription Drugs? GONE. Rare Earth mining? GONE.
Yeah, we really NEED those Democrats!

From the article, ““Whiteness,” star Times magazine writer Nikole Hannah-Jones wrote on Wednesday, “is expandable when necessary. A lot of folks we don’t think of as white think of themselves as white because the lines have never been entirely clear. That’s the beauty of white supremacy—it is extremely adaptable.”

So the NYT is trying to say that all the people of color – blacks, Hispanics, asians, ect…- are really thinking of themselves as white mainly because they walked away from the Democrat party and voted Republican?!? 🤔 🤨 Wow, just wow

The New York Slime is a pathetic excuse for a newspaper. It is a liberal propaganda rag the rarely gets true facts included in the BS they constantly spew.

The NYT, along with the majority of other MSM sources are commissars of the Ministry Of Propaganda of the Democrat Party and, as a result, they don’t care whether what they report is true of not. The truth has never been their objective as the truth is totally foreign to their agenda. They have become invertebrate scum-suckers whose moral dip-stick is two drops shy of bone dry. (I thank agent Mulder of “The X-Files” for that descriptive characterization.) Sniff….sniff….can you smell it? The refreshing smell of revolution is in the air.

The Times is NOT a NEWS paper anymore

News flash, nobody gives a sh-t what the nytimes has to say anymore, except the inept writers that work there. There are no reporters there anymore and there has not been for at least 20+ years. They take their direction from media maters, just like the hilda beast said back when she was asked.
