Gainor: Trump-hating media shrugs off own foolishness

New York Times buildingThe New York Times is at the center of another journalistic scandal, this one over a podcast it ran claiming it featured an ISIS killer who was telling tales. It turns out, however, they were all made up. 

The New York Times was duped by a fraud named Shehroze Chaudhry.

 The podcast called “Caliphate” that ran 12 episodes in 2018 was largely fiction.

The Times found out when Canadian authorities arrested Chaudhry and charged him with carrying out a terrorist hoax. Not for the first time, the Times had to issue a correction to state the episodes did not meet its “standards for accuracy.”

Dan Gainor of Media Research Center points out the Times won awards for Caliphate, including a Peabody.

“Of course, it's entirely false and their editor, just a week or so ago, got the Cronkite Award for Journalism,” Gainor tells One News Now.

Regarding the left-wing media and its stumbling efforts, Gainor points out a CNN correspondent is now claiming that President Trump will leave office with a “historically bad” economic record. John Hardwood writes in an op-ed that Trump leaves office with fewer people employed. The reason for that --- a global, economy-crushing pandemic that ruined record gains --- finally gets mentioned halfway through the article.

“Instead of being the first draft of history,” Gainor complains, “it's the rewritten draft of history.”

Back at the famous New York Times, Gainor points out the historic publication has a long history of journalistic fraud that includes reporter Jason Blair in 2003 and Judith Miller who told outright lies, and some reporting that has yet to be called out, including the 1619 Project that rewrites American history.

“The New York Times helped take down Trump. That's all the media care about,” he concludes. "Their worldview really needs one evil villain -- so mark my words: long after Trump is gone, they're still going to be blaming him."
