Former New York Times editor says paper is ‘anti-Trump’ Leave a comment

IS SO BAD. IT’S SO BAD. >> Jason: PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BEEN RAILING AGAINST “THE NEW YORK TIMES” SINCE THE 2016 CAMPAIGN, CLAIMING THEY WERE DISHONEST AND BIASED AGAINST HIM. IT TURNS OUT HE WAS RIGHT. ACCORDING TO HIS FORMER EXECUTIVE EDITOR, JILL ABRAMSON. SHE SAYS THE PAPERS NEWS PAGES, THE HOME OF ITS STREETS NEWS COVERAGE, HAVE BECOME “UNMISTAKABLY ANTI-TRIM.” HERE NOW IS HOWARD KURTZ, FOX NEWS ME ANALYST AND HOST OF MEDIA BUZZ ON THE FOX NEWS CHANNEL. YOU WERE THE ONE THAT BROKE THE STORY AND FOUND WHAT SHE HAD BEEN SAYING. THIS IS — WE’VE HEARD THIS BEFORE. WE HAVE NOT REALLY SEEN IT TO THIS DEGREE. >> WE HAVEN’T HEARD FROM THE FORMER EDITOR OF “THE NEW YORK TIMES.” THE STORY HAS GONE ABSOLUTELY VIRAL. SHE’S WRITTEN A FORTHCOMING BOOK AND SHE SAYS, THE NEWS PAGES, NOT THE OP-ED PLAN, THESE PAGES, RAW OPINION, HEADLINES, THIS BRINGS THE CASH REGISTERS. “GIVEN ITS MOSTLY LIBERAL AUDIENCE, THERE WAS AN IMPLICIT FINANCIAL REWARD FOR “THE TIMES” RUNNING A BUNCH OF ANTI-TRUMP STORIES, THEY DROVE BY TRAFFIC NUMBERS. MORE THAN A HALF MILLION DIGITAL SUBSCRIPTIONS, JUST THE FIRST FEW MONTHS OF TRUMP IN THE WHITE HOUSE. >> Jason: THEY WERE REWARDED WITH CIRCULATION. AT WHAT POINT DO THEY GET OFF THE RAILS UNDERSIDE THAT, HEY, WE GOT TO GO OUT AND MAKE SURE THAT WE GIVE OUR AUDIENCE WHAT THEY WANT RATHER THAN PLAYING IT STRAIGHT AND DELIVER THE NEWS? WHY ISN’T THAT THEIR MANTRA? >> THAT SHOULD BE THE MANTRA OF EVERY NEWS ORGANIZATION. I THINK A LOT OF ORGANIZATIONS LIKE “THE TIMES” ARE FINDING THAT THERE IS A FINANCIAL AWARD, ALMOST A BUSINESS MODEL AND PLAYING TO AN ANTI-TRUMP AUDIENCE. IN THIS CASE, YES, JILL ABRAMSON WAS FIRED FOUR YEARS AGO. SHE WRITES ABOUT THIS IN THE BOOK, I WRITE ABOUT IT IN THE COLUMN. SHE ADMITS SHE HAD FLAWS, SHE COULD BE SELF-RIGHTEOUS, AND SHE’S CRITICIZING HER SUCCESSOR, THE CURRENT EXECUTIVE EDITOR WHO WAS HER NUMBER TWO, PLAYED A ROLE IN THE FIRING, DOES NOT READ TO ME LIKE SOUR GRAPES. IT READS TO ME LIKE SOMEBODY WHO LOVES “THE NEW YORK TIMES” — WHO, BY THE WAY, IS NOT A FAN OF PRESIDENT TRUMP. SHE’S CRITICIZED HIM IN HER OWN COLUMNS BUT SHE BELIEVES THE PAPER THAT SHE LOVES HAS GONE OFF THE RAILS WHEN IT COMES TO THIS PRESIDENT. >> Jason: IS THERE A TERM — IS THERE A CHANGE IN THE JOURNALISTIC STANDARDS FOR THE YOUNG PEOPLE? I WANT TO PUT UP THIS QUOTE THAT SHE SAYS. “THE MORE WOKE STAFF THOUGHT THAT URGENT TIMES CALLED FOR URGENT MEASURES. THE DANGERS OF TRUMP’S PRESIDENCY OBVIATED THE OLD STANDARDS.” THEY THINK THEY ARE SELF-RIGHTEOUS AND JUSTIFIED IN DOING THIS BECAUSE THERE IS THE GREATER GOOD. >> I’VE HEARD SO MANY JOURNALISTS SAY THIS, PUBLICLY OR PRIVATELY, DONALD TRUMP’S PRESIDENCY IS SO OUT OF CONTROL, HE’S NOT FIT FOR THE JOB, HE JUSTIFIES WHAT WE’RE DOING. AND IF I, WE HAVE BECOME THE OPPOSITION PARTY, WE HAVE TO CRUSADE AGAINST HIM. ABRAMSON IS TELLING ABOUT THE “THE TIMES,” SHE SAID AS THE YOUNGER STAFF, THE MORE WOKE STAFF. THE STANDARDS OF USE FOR EVERY OTHER PRESIDENT, THROW THEM OUT THE WINDOW BECAUSE AS DONALD TRUMP BY THE MORE ANTI-TRUMP THE “THE TIMES” IS PERCEIVED TO BECOME OF THE MORE IT MISTRUSTED FOR BEING BIASED. THAT IS THE COST. YOU MAKE LOTS OF MONEY IN THE SHORT TERM BUT IF YOU LOSE THAT CREDIBILITY THAT YOU ARE JUST APPLYING A WHOLE DIFFERENT SET OF STANDARDS FOR A PRESIDENT YOU DON’T LIKE PERSONALLY, VISCERALLY, IDEOLOGICALLY, I I THINK YOUR CREDIBILITY ERODES WITH A LARGER AUDIENCE. >> Jason: THE RELATIONSHIP SHE HAD WITH HILLARY CLINTON, BECAUSE IT WASN’T ALL PRO HILLARY CLINTON, “THE NEW YORK TIMES” DID BREAK THE STORY ABOUT — >> THE PRIVATE EMAIL SERVER. >> Jason: THAT CAUSED SOME DISTRESSED. SHE SEEMED, AT LEAST FROM WHAT I READ YOUR ARTICLE, TO SAY THAT WAS A PROBLEM FOR HER. >> SHE SAYS THAT SHE’S NEVER GOTTEN ALONG WITH HILLARY. SHE SAYS HILLARY COULD BE PARANOID. SHE ALSO THINKS “THE TIMES” OVERPLAYED THE HILLARY STORY. THAT’S BEEN THE SUBJECT OF A LOT OF DEBATE. THE POINT IS, THAT IS NOT ME OR YOU ARE PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYING IT, THIS IS THE FORMER EDITOR OF THE PAPER, FORMER “WALL STREET JOURNAL” REPORTER, PUTTING HER THOUGHTS OF THIS BOOK, AND ESSENTIALLY SAYING THAT THE CRITICS ARE THE WORST CRITICS OF THE “THE TIMES” ARE TRUE WHEN IT COMES TO THE TRUMP COVERAGE. I THINK JOURNALISTS OF ALL ORGANIZATIONS HAVE TO WORRY AT THIS POINT — NOT THAT THERE SHOULDN’T BE AGGRESSIVE REPORTING, NOT THAT THERE AREN’T GOOD REPORTERS AT “THE TIMES,” NOT THAT SOME OF THE INVESTIGATIONS MISSED THE MARK BUT THE CUMULATIVE TONE AND VOLUME AND RELENTLESS NATURE OF THE ANTI-TRUMP FUSELAGE I THINK IS HURTING CREDIBILITY, AND NOW WE HAVE JILL ABRAMSON — >> Jason: GO TO FoxNews.com, FIND THIS ARTICLE. IT’S A FASCINATING READ. I THINK IT IS MORE PROBLEMATIC THAN JUST “THE NEW YORK TIMES.” I WONDER WHERE THESE SCHOOLS OF JOURNALISM ARE AND WHAT THEY ARE TEACHING THESE KIDS BECAUSE I DON’T GET THE SENSE OF, WE WILL REPORT THE NEWS, NOT TRY TO
