The antisemitism and racism of a NYT editor exposed

Breitbart reported about the vile comments made by Tom Wright Piersanti, a senior editor at the repellent New York Times, on his Twitter page, which is currently restricted to private viewing. His tweets included nasty comments about Asians and Indians too:
A New York Times political editor has a years-long history of antisemitic and racist comments on his Twitter page, a Breitbart News investigation has found.

Tom Wright-Piersanti, who has been a Senior Staff Editor at the New York Times for more than five years according to his LinkedIn page and according to his Twitter page oversees the newspaper’s political coverage, has made a series of antisemitic and racist tweets over the years. Many of them are still public on his Twitter page as of the publication of this article, but some have since been deleted.

The revelation of these tweets come in the wake of the executive editor of the Times stating that the newspaper intends to target the president on racial issues over the next couple years, after the newspaper’s efforts on the Russia hoax scandal failed.

One tweet that is still public is from the early morning of New Years Day in 2010, when he admits he is antisemitic but announced that his New Years resolution was to be less antisemitic—even though the tweet’s content mocks Jewish people.

“I was going to say ‘Crappy Jew Year,’ but one of my resolutions is to be less anti-Semitic,” Wright-Piersanti tweeted on Jan. 1, 2010, at 9:35 a.m. “So…. HAPPY Jew Year. You Jews.”
[...]

Antisemitic content is not the only racially insensitive content that Wright-Piersanti has published on his Twitter feed. Wright-Piersanti also sent out a racially insensitive tweet on May 18, 2010, that he has since deleted from his Twitter feed: “With asian babies, is it racist to say to the parents, ‘Aw, he looks just like you!’? What if you say it before you see any pictures?”

Wright-Piersanti also sent out a number of messages about Indian people as well, bashing them repeatedly over a number of years.

On Dec. 8, 2009, he tweeted at 10:39 a.m.: “There are four indian guys with mohawks in this one class, and each one is a douche in his own awful way. I hate mohawk Indians.”
Gee, what a loathsome individual this man is. As the following indicates, he's got a condescending view of women to boot:
On Dec. 4, 2008, he tweeted: “Want to see dozens of Indian girls grind all over each other? Go to the Golden Rail Pub in New Brunswick, New Jersey.”
No doubt, he has no critical view of Islam by sharp contrast. Worst, the NYT board will likely give him a promotion soon, and never fire him as he deserves. Alex Marlow had the following to say:
Marlow described “a pattern of antisemitism at the New York Times,” recalling how “just this year, [the New York Times] had to stop publishing political cartoons because they did not trust their own editors to be able to decipher between which cartoons are antisemitic and which aren’t.”

“This statement basically plays the victim card,” said Marlow of Sulzberger’s allegation that the New York Times is “the target of a vast right-wing conspiracy.”

Marlow added, “They’re the victims of you and me and Arthur Schwartz and Donald Trump and anyone who, God forbid, wants to hold the New York Times accountable for their smears.”

Despite posturing as an advocate for First Amendment protections of free speech, expression, and a free press, the New York Times has advocated for the destruction of dissident news media outlets such as Breitbart News.

“Remember, the New York Times is the paper that literally published a how-to guide on how to destroy Breitbart News,” recalled Marlow. “And now, this guy is whining that people would dare to look into his precious staff? It’s laughable, it’s pathetic, and it shows how vulnerable the Times is.”

The New York Times is a beneficiary of uniquely low standards of conduct relative to other organizations — both news media and otherwise — assessed Marlow.

“There is not a good explanation of how an editor could put up antisemitic tweets and still be allowed to work at the New York Times to this day,” Marlow stated. “He’s still there, and we know in any other profession that’s in public life, at all, [he would be fired]. It’s not just journalists. I can’t think of another profession where you’d be allowed to tweet antisemitic things, anti-Indian things, and still keep a job at this moment.”
Well that's why the smart person must avoid financing their paper by not buying it in any way. There's only so many articles there that are junk, and can't be taken at face value. They have suffered financial losses already in past years, but it's still vital to avoid them, save for scrutinizing what horrors they do publish. The NYT is simply unbearable.

(a lawyer and best-selling author) said:


Unfreedom of the Press is about
how those who entrusted with news reporting
in the modern era are destroying freedom
of the press from within:
not from government oppression or suppression...

A self-perpetuating and reinforcing mindset
has replaced independent and impartial thinking.
And the American people know it.

Thus the credibility of the mass media has never been lower.”

Mark R. Levin
(a lawyer and best-selling author) said:


“Unlike the early patriot press, today’s
newsrooms and journalists are mostly hostile
to America’s founding principles, traditions,
and institutions.

They do not promote free speech and
press freedom, despite their self-serving
and self-righteous claims.

Indeed, they serve as societal filters
attempting to enforce uniformity of thought
and social and political activism centered
on the Progressive ideology and agenda.

Issues, events, groups, and individuals
that do not fit the narrative are dismissed
or diminished; those that fit the narrative
are elevated and celebrated.”

“When a journalist breaks from the rest

their careers are typically threatened

George Mason Professor Tim Groseclose,
formerly of the University of California,
Los Angeles
, developed an “objective,
social-scientific method” in which he
calculates how the Progressive political
views of journalists and media outlets
distort the natural views of Americans.

It “prevents us from seeing the world
as it actually is. Instead, we see only
a distorted version of it.

It is as if we see the world through
a looking glass – a glass that magnifies
the facts that Liberals want us to see,
and shrinks the facts the facts that
Conservatives want us to see.

The metaphoric glass affects not just
what we see, but how we think.

That is, media bias really does make us more Liberal.

Perhaps worst of all, media bias feeds on itself.

That is, the bias makes us more Liberal,
which makes us less able to detect the bias,
which allows the media to get away with more bias,
which makes us even more Liberal, and so on.”

[Professor Tim] Groseclose continues:
“U.S. newsrooms are extremely one-sided.”

A November 2018 survey of 462 financial
journalists by professors at Arizona State
University and Texas A&M University,
of which more than 70% of those surveyed
were affiliated with: the Wall Street Journal,
Financial Times, Bloomberg News, Associated Press,
Forbes, The New York Times, Reuters, or the
Washington Post, revealed that even most
financial journalists are political Progressives.

When asked: “Generally speaking, how would
you describe your political views?” the
journalists responded: very Liberal 17.63%;
somewhat Liberal 40.84%; moderate 37.12%;
somewhat Conservative 3.94%;
and, very Conservative 0.046%.

Thus, nearly 60% of financial journalists
surveyed were Liberal, and less than 5%
were Conservative.

Thomas Edsall [an American journalist
and Liberal / Progressive Professor at
the Columbia University School of
Journalism in New York City] said:


“Since the civil rights and women’s movements,
the culture wars and Watergate [year 1972],
the press corps at such institutions as:
the Washington Post, ABC-NBC-CBS News,
the NYT, the Wall Street Journal, Time,
Newsweek, the Los Angeles Times,
the Boston Globe, etc. is composed in large
part of ‘new’ or ‘creative’ class members
of the Liberal elite --- well-educated men
and women who tend to favor: abortion rights,
women’s rights, civil rights, and gay rights.

In the main, they find such [politically
Conservative] figures as: Bill O’Reilly,
Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Pat Robertson,
or Jerry Falwell beneath contempt.”

“The evidence indicates that when it
comes to matters of politics and culture,
among things, journalism has become
an overwhelmingly Progressive enterprise,
and the disingenuousness with which it is
mostly denied, defended, or even celebrated,
often leads to a pack mentality, groupthink,
repetitions, and even propaganda presented as news.”

Given the Progressive ideology and
Democratic Party attachment of the
modern media and journalists, their
commitment to “community” journalism
and social activism, and with the
integration of opinion and news making,
objective truth increasingly difficult
to discern, is the public actually
receiving predominantly news or
propaganda or pseudo-information?
