    Agenda-based "news" coverage -- The New York Times

    Interesting example of a mainstream "major" media outlet bowing to largely-Democratic pressure to alter its headline in an article created Monday.

    The headline read: "Trump urges unity vs. racism."

    Predictably, a firestorm of outrage swept through, by recognizable Dems, protesting the failure to push for arms control.

    As a result, in the next edition, the article was re-titled: "Assailing hate but not guns."

    'Headline was flawed': New York Times changed headline about Trump speech after backlash @ Yahoo News, 6 August 2019.

    The liberty-destroying mouthpieces of so-called "major" media are coming out in force, now. The RKBA is squarely in everyone's cross hairs.



    EDIT: A new op-ed piece about the NYT about-face on the headline for their article, and the leftist blowback against journalistic neutrality in any form -- The New York Times changes its headline, caves to the mob and shows it has lost its mind @ Fox News, by Dan Gainor, 7 August 2019.
    The New York Post's take on the NYT's agenda-driven "news" coverage: The New York Times modifies its motto to fit leftist agenda @ New York Post, by Michael Goodwin, 11 August 2019.

    Excerpt:

    The mandate of opinion-free news coverage was tossed overboard during the heated 2016 presidential election, and the paper now displays its bias on every page.

    The quaint motto is still there, but these days the Times doesn’t cover the news as much as promote an agenda. As it says repeatedly, the paper has a “mission.”

    The mission is obvious: The Times aims to elect left-wing Democrats to virtually every office in the land and transform America culturally, educationally and politically.

    As such, it operates as the chief cheerleader for the left, and one result is that many of its readers buy it because they agree with its politics. Specifically, they like the Times because they believe the paper hates President Trump as much as it does.

    ...

    Another sign of what we're up against, as supporters of the BOR and the constitutional rule of law.

    NYT 1980: "All the news that's fit to print."

    NYT 2019: "All the slant that suits our agenda."
