The New York Times recently was about to publish a headline that did not, for this one occasion, savage President Trump. This outraged Democrat politicians who pressured this August newspaper to change the headline to one that reflected its usual negative portrayal of our president.

I thought in America, we had something called  the “independent press,” a press whose independence was guaranteed  in our First Amendment. But when it comes to The New York Times and the Democratic Party, we can wave goodbye to that independence and that hallowed dictum of the Bill of Rights. By the way, the Dems have been looking for collusion the last two years. Maybe this is it.

JME- I always look forward to the profundity of your reactions and wonder why the Voting Rights Act did not include a minimum IQ benchmark to be able to vote.


These type of timed IQ tests are not only unfair to minorities such as Hispanics, Asians, and Blacks, but also to some Whites who came from mainly rural areas with hillbilly accents. These tests are mainly used by white Americans to discriminate against blacks in a so-called legal way. This is one reason why affirmative action came about.


Remember this headline.

What headline are you talking about?

Dear Cindy - the NYT printed an unusual headline the day after the President spoke about the horrific mass shootings. For a change, it was not critical and hinted at endorsing the President's position. That enraged the left base and following a twitter barrage from these folks who do not value a free press, the NYT came out with a new edition headline that was not as complimentary. It provided proof again that the NYT is just a propaganda tool for the Democratic Party and anti-Trumpers.


Read David Brooks instead of watching Fox Snooze.
