NYT PLANS ELECTION 2020 COVERAGE IN ADVANCE: FOCUS ON TRUMP AND RACIAL ISSUES

Lord God, help us as we are inundated with news that isn't "fit to print," as the tag line of the New York Times famously declares. Help us always look to You first and foremost in everything.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) unloaded on the New York Times after leaked meeting transcript allegedly shows editors discussing plans to tie President Donald Trump to racism.

Late last week, Slate published the transcript of a recorded meeting allegedly held by New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet where he addressed the staff about their political coverage.

Baquet acknowledged that the New York Times took the Mueller investigation from a story about “whether the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia and obstruction of justice to being a more head-on story about the president’s character.”

Now that the Mueller report came up empty relating to a conspiracy between Trump and Russia, Baquet told his staff that they needed to take their coverage in another direction, this time focusing on Trump and racial issues in the United States.

He claimed that race “is going to be a huge part of the American story” and added that he hoped their 1619 Project — a series of reports looking at the impact of slavery in the U.S. — would “teach [New York Times] readers to think a little bit more like that.” . . .

(Ted Cruz offered a cogent and apt critique through a series of tweets:)

If you care about journalism, or the First Amendt, READ the transcript. The Editor says (in effect) “for 2 yrs, we covered ‘Russia, Russia, Russia,’ facts be damned; now we’ll scream ‘racism, racism, racism’ for 18 mos, and the rest of the media follow us.” That’s not journalism. https://twitter.com/tedcruz/status/1163134559862611969 …

There was a time when journalists covered “news.” The NYT has given up on even pretending anymore. Today, they are Pravda, a propaganda outlet by liberals, for liberals. These remarks at their “town hall” are a scandal & would be a firing offense at any real journalistic outlet.

The Editor continued: “Race in the next year…is going to be a huge part of the American story. And I mean, race in terms of not only African Americans and their relationship w/ Donald Trump, but Latinos & immigration.” So, he’s explicit that this is the political narrative. 5/x

What is the 1619 project? In NYT’s words: “It aims to REFRAME OUR COUNTRY’S HISTORY, understanding 1619 as OUR TRUE FOUNDING, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of the STORY WE TELL ourselves about who we are.” . . .

This is not the first time the Times has been criticized by Republicans. President Trump has gone out of his way to deem the outlet the “failing New York Times” and has claimed they have “zero credibility,” though subscriptions to the Times are reportedly at a record high.

  1. Father,
    We stand in need of Your help today. There is so much spin and so little truth being proclaimed. We look to you to reveal truth and to expose the lies. I think of the way that you led Abby Johnson out of the abortion lie. Would you be pleased to begin to have some journalists who say- “enough is enough”? Would there be some journalists who have a conscience? Please help some of them to see where this kind of behavior leads.This is how Hitler began to control Germany. Just as others have had to put their jobs on the line to make a stand – I pray that there would be journalists who would begin to make a stand for truth.
    I also ask for the Spirit to move on hearts in churches across this nation so that we are actually pursuing truth and able to recognize the lies of the enemy, who walks around like a roaring lion seeking to destroy us.
    We follow the One who is Truth.Make us like Him.

  2. Our place in this as The Body of Christ is to pray, pray, pray!!! God calls us His royal priesthood and we rule by prayer!! No other can rule over the united prayers of the saints!! Body of Christ unite in prayer for a Good Government!! So the Word of God can be shared with all and all can come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ our Lord!! Ask God to send His angles to respond to these lies and expose the Truth for all to see clearly without a doubt and that our Lord’s grace and mercy will bring those deceived of the enemy to repentance and be saved through all our Lord Jesus has done for us on the cross!! (including those who writing the articles!)

  3. Wake up America!!! Satan is running the show! Money is his weapon. Trump is whright you have no other choice choose GOD or your kids will be speaking chinese. I love GOD, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
    There is a good chance that JFK was killed by the CIA (Bush Sr.)
    There is a good chance that 9/11 was done by Bush Jr. and his brother planted the thermite in the buildings.
    Wake up America, USA presidents killing americans!
    It is time to do what JFK suggested “Ask your country what can I do for my country”
    My suggestion is vote for children, vote Trump!and pray he is a man of his word.

  4. Let’s all speak to this mountain and command it to stand down. Bow it’s knee to righteousness. Proclaim that Jesus Christ is enthroned as King of Righteousness over all as He should be. Let God arise and His enemies be scattered. We have been given the key of authority spiritually. Let’s agree together in Jesus name

    1. I agree and forbid this mountain of deception and perversion to remain in place and say it must be removed and cast into the sea. We repent, Father on behalf of those who have been blinded by deception and held in bondage by the devil. Raise up BOLD voices, Father to correct them with courtesy and gentleness in the hope that You would grant them repentance and the knowledge of the Truth and they may come to their senses and escape out of the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him, henceforth to do Your will. (2 Tim 2:25-56)

  5. Dear Lord,
    You are a God of Truth. I ask for help with the lies that are being spread through main stream media & social media. You tell us to focus on that which is true. Help The People turn away from listening and read the lies. Give us an alternative place to get true news in Jesus name. AMEN SO BE IT according to Your will.

  6. Psalm 2:2(TPT): “Look at how the power brokers of the world rise up to hold their summit as the rulers scheme and confer together…(4) God-Enthroned merely laughs at them; the Sovereign One mocks their madness! Then with the fierceness of his fiery anger He settles the issue… (10-NASB)…Take warning O judges of the earth. (11) Worship the Lord with reverence, and rejoice with trembling. (12) Do homage (Kiss) the Son lest He become angry and you perish in the way, for His wrath may soon be kindled. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!” We are at a time when good is called evil and truth is called a lie or irrelevant. This will not continue much longer! God IS sovereign and all is working towards His perfect plan! This is an hour in which we must continue to stand strong for righteousness and truth and not grow weary in well-doing. Regardless of how it looks right now, a great God-ordained breakthrough for this nation is coming!

  7. I pray that the NYT will discover how much change there has been among the various people groups in America. I pray they will declare the glories of God and show what God is doing through the many people groups in America. How there is unity and love and diversity as the American Africans, Latinos, whites, etc., are working together – God has been doing much in America. I give God praise!

  8. NYT is just one more example of the depth of deception to which many so called leaders in our nation have descended. They ave deceived and they spout deception, living in a swamp of lies. We Christians in the US must be like the Christians of HongKong. We must fearlessly speak for the truth and for life, get out and vote our faith, vote out of the Truth we know. ( King David was not squeaky clean but he was called a man after God’s own heart. We have a president who is not squeaky clean but is a man of God’s choosing for this time in which we live) We Christians need to strongly avoid being taken in by the swamp of lies and deception around us.

  9. We are suppose to be protected by free speech. It is free if you agree with the left agenda, but are racist, bigot, homophobic ect. if you disagree. That is not free speech, that is propaganda, true journalism is a thing of the past and it breaks my heart. It seems like it is a race to who can sale the biggest lie as the truth.

    1. The Left does not believe in free speech. They think it’s some sort of white privilege concept. Only the oppressed have the right to say what they want, and woe to those who don’t agree.

      Folks, we have a Maoist movement here. Am I permitted to call them ‘fools’ who are pushing for this and rioting in our streets for this? Our media and public schools are breeding a generation of useful idiots. This MUST stop.
