Earth to NYT’s Sulzberger: The whole world does not consist of serially abused wives

From Fox News:

The publisher of The New York Times penned a letter to readers Friday promising that the paper would “reflect” on its coverage of this year’s election while rededicating itself to reporting on “America and the world” honestly.

New York Post columnist and former Times reporter Michael Goodwin wrote, “because it (The Times) demonized Trump from start to finish, it failed to realize he was onto something. And because the paper decided that Trump’s supporters were a rabble of racist rednecks and homophobes, it didn’t have a clue about what was happening in the lives of the Americans who elected the new president.

Sulzbergers letter was released after the paper’s public editor, Liz Spayd, took the paper to task for its election coverage. She pointed out how its polling feature Upshot gave Hillary Clinton an 84 percent chance as voters went to the polls. More.

Reality check: First, we all know perfectly well that we would not be hearing this if Sulz and Co. had helped splat Clinton, dead or alive, into the White House. Then, we would be hearing the usual sneers and navigating our way through the usual coverups to the internet, to find out what was really happening.

Second, when people really, honestly in the depths of their hearts, despise us—and the New York Times has made very clear for at least forty years that it really, honestly, despises the “rabble” of ordinary Americans— forgiveness is beside the point.

They are entitled to their opinion. Americans are not required to make them a part of their lives, ever again.

Why be the classic woman who bears numerous scars and bruises from an abusive marriage, where the guy is always promising to be good this time. No, sister. End it now.

He’s entitled to be who he is and do what he does, and face the consequences. But you do not have to live with him or let him live in your head.

We have the internet. We have kitty litter too. The Times is finished.
