In the wake of the controversy surrounding New York Times hire Sarah Jeong, Vox writers busily composed articles defending Jeong's racist rants.  Apparently, there's a whole other "social justice" language that makes her racist tweets not only acceptable but not racist at all. There was so much twisting of logic and SJW semantic gymnastics that Cal State sociology professor Bradley Campbell put together a nifty chart to help us understand the finer points of microagressions versus Orwellian SJW babble.

Long-time Legal Insurrection readers will recall the controversy over the ever-changing Elizabeth Warren Wikipedia page.  Here's an overview from 2013:  Elizabeth Warren Wikipedia page ethnically cleansed (Update — partial restoration). In the wake of the controversial and hypocritical decision of the New York Times to keep Sarah Jeong despite her racist tweets, the same sort of cleansing of Jeong's Wikipedia page is underway.

The left is ticked off at New York Magazine columnist Andrew Sullivan and they won't stop until they get blood! He penned an article that blasted The New York Times for keeping Sarah Jeong despite her history of tweeting out racist tweets against white people. How DARE he think racism is racism! In his article he stated that he doesn't think the publication should fire her.

Remember back in February 2018 when The New York Times hired Quinn Norton, but quickly let her go after people exposed old tweets that included slurs against gay people and retweets with racist terms? I guess only those slurs were bad because The New York Times editorial board hired Sarah Jeong who has a history of racist tweets against white people. The newspaper even sent out a memo that defends its hiring of Jeong!

An editorial in The New York Times on Monday blasted President Donald Trump for not having a plan for Syria. I don't know if Trump does or doesn't have a plan for Syria. What I do know is that Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama did have a plan for Syria - and it is the reason we keep seeing carnage there. What's worse, The New York Times enthusiastically supported Obama's plans affecting Syria.

Since President Trump's election, the left has morphed into a bizarre mixture of fascist groups "against fascism," free speech groups that fanatically shut-down speech with which they disagree, and pro-illegal immigrant groups that ignore DACA.  Among all this counterintuitive bluster are the anti-Trump leftists who have taken their Trump Derangement Syndrome to brand-new levels of cringe-worthy derangement.

The New York Times has experienced an amazing epiphany: Sweden's open-door policy to refugees from Muslim countries has created a crisis of violence and crime in Sweden.  While they myopically attribute this crisis to "gangs," they do dabble with the idea that integration of foreign nationals into the existing socio-cultural framework of the host country may be desirable after all. This is a remarkable shift given the NYT's attempts to cover up the escalation of violence, rape, and crime perpetrated by refugees in Sweden.  Remember their feigned shock when President Trump last year pointed out, quite rightly, that Sweden was feeling the negative affects of letting hundreds of thousands of refugees flood their country?

The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) is an international media-monitoring organization that was founded back in 1982 to promote more accurate, balanced, and complete coverage of Israel and the Middle East. In addition to its many blogs and longform articles which expose an astonishing amount of errors and omissions, CAMERA also produces original research that evaluates how this skewed information on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is filtered into educational programming in various settings, such as in U.S. college campuses, the K-12 educational system, and in churches.

The New York Times has suspended its White House reporter Glenn Thrush after Vox published an article of alleged sexual misconduct towards young female journalists. The author Laura McGann worked at Politico with Thrush had her own incidents with Thrush, but spoke to several other females who had similar experiences with the reporter.

The alleged offenses committed by Roy Moore, Al Franken, and Harvey Weinstein aren't even in the same ballpark. Al Franken of course, the growing Democrat argument goes, is the lesser offender of the many and because he apologized for his actions in the now famously scandalous photo, he ought to be left alone to live his life in the U.S. Senate. Several pieces have been penned making this argument for various reasons. They're little more than fluffy excuses for alleged sexual predators who, without the consent of the other party(ies), prey upon weakness and vulnerability. No matter how you slice their alleged offenses they're sick, not to mention wrong.

Ronan Farrow, who did as much as anyone to rip the lid off the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment/assault scandal, has another eye-opener. And the subject is superstar lawyer David Boies, who among other things, represented the plaintiff in the Supreme Court case on same-sex marriage. Weinstein, according to Ronan's reporting, had an Army of Spies to kill stories about his misconduct:

Project Veritas dropped another video in its investigation into The New York Times, this time catching IT consultant Todd Gordon admitting that the paper unfairly reports on and hates President Donald Trump. These same sentiments were expressed in the previous videos. In the first video of the series, Audience Strategy Editor Nicholas Dudich told an undercover reporter he chose the NYT so he doesn't have to be objective. NYT Senior Homepage Editor Desiree Shoe appeared in the second video. She admitted the paper has a left-leaning bias and it tried to influence the 2016 election.
