If their readers wanted news they wouldn’t read The New York Times

New York Times releases a second edition with a different headline after Twitter backlash and liberals announce they’re canceling subscriptions.

Must not say anything even slightly positive about the President. They live in a sheltered workshop in which exposure to reality will drive them crazy crazier. Taken from here.

They would also have noticed that the story on China can also be read as pro-Trump but they’re not into that kind of thing in the same way.

    All the stories that fit the narrative?

    In order to solve a problem it is essential to define the nature of the problem.
    National Institute of Justice built a database dating back to 1966 of every mass shooter who shot and killed four or more people in a public place, and every shooting incident at schools, workplaces, and places of worship since 1999.
    First, the vast majority of mass shooters in our study experienced early childhood trauma and exposure to violence at a young age. The nature of their exposure included parental suicide, physical or sexual abuse, neglect, domestic violence, and/or severe bullying. The trauma was often a precursor to mental health concerns, including depression, anxiety, thought disorders or suicidality.
    Second, practically every mass shooter we studied had reached an identifiable crisis point in the weeks or months leading up to the shooting. They often had become angry and despondent because of a specific grievance. For workplace shooters, a change in job status was frequently the trigger. For shooters in other contexts, relationship rejection or loss often played a role. Such crises were, in many cases, communicated to others through a marked change in behavior, an expression of suicidal thoughts or plans, or specific threats of violence.
    Third, most of the shooters had studied the actions of other shooters and sought validation for their motives. People in crisis have always existed. But in the age of 24-hour rolling news and social media, there are scripts to follow that promise notoriety in death. Societal fear and fascination with mass shootings partly drives the motivation to commit them. Hence, as we have seen in the last week, mass shootings tend to come in clusters. They are socially contagious. Perpetrators study other perpetrators and model their acts after previous shootings. Many are radicalized online in their search for validation from others that their will to murder is justified.
    Fourth, the shooters all had the means to carry out their plans. Once someone decides life is no longer worth living and that murdering others would be a proper revenge, only means and opportunity stand in the way of another mass shooting. Is an appropriate shooting site accessible? Can the would-be shooter obtain firearms? In 80% of school shootings, perpetrators got their weapons from family members, according to our data. Workplace shooters tended to use handguns they legally owned. Other public shooters were more likely to acquire them illegally.

    How about:
    Fifth, the vast majority of mass shootings happen in gun free zones.

    A friend of mine has lived all her life except her university years in or within ten minutes’ drive of Newtown Connecticut, scene of the Sandy Hook shooting. Apparently even in far-left Connecticut, once that shooting had happened the citizens of Newtown realised that disarming school security guards had been a mistake, and now guards at the new school are armed.

    BREAKING: New York Times appoints Twitter mob as editor. All the news social media junk that’s fit to print.

  5. Nob

    The BBC has been breathlessly insistent on Trump Did It in revert need bulletin because his public condemnation didn’t follow the script they demanded.

    The Dayton killings aren’t even mentioned.

  6. Nob

    “revert need” = ” every news”

    This really is like the Terror. No entity could have done more to establish its woke, anti-Republican credentials than the NYT. In a sane world, this would give it enough cushioning so that the odd wobble, like this one, might be frowned upon but tolerated. But no. The crazies would burn down the NYT if they could for the sake of a single perceived deviation from revolutionary purity. They really are that crazy.

  8. Look at the sub-headings

    * National Outcry Over Extremisim
    vs
    * Backlash to Extremism Pressures President.

    and
    * Condemns ‘Slaughters’ But Says Little of Gun Control.
    vs
    * Trump in Speech, Says Little of Curbing Weapons.

    MSM #FakeNews ARE truly the ENEMY of the PEOPLE.

    CNN and MSNBC ratings have dived after Mueller confirmed the Wussians stuff was all bullshit.

    So far the Parrot Cage Liner has managed to survive this catastrophe by spinning like a carbon spewing turboalternator.

    When Barr puts all the perps away in Levenworth even the Ever Greyer Lady is going to die. Why pay lots of dosh for lies?

    “Why pay lots of dosh for lies?”

    Have you never heard of Our ABC?

    This far left rag recently published an article extolling the rights supposedly extended to women and “minorities” by the Soviets before the U.S. granted them.
    This puff piece/communist propaganda praised a Union run by a communist dictatorship then engaged in a Cold War with the West.
    Of course, the NYT completely whitewashed the Soviet Union, ignoring all the human rights abuses, crimes, and gulags.

    “Anger a conservative by lying to him. Anger a progressive by telling him the truth.”

  13. Tel

    Of course, the NYT completely whitewashed the Soviet Union, ignoring all the human rights abuses, crimes, and gulags.

    Also Cuba.

    Fidel Castro has strong ideas of liberty, democracy, social justice, the need to restore the Constitution….but it amounts to a new deal for Cuba, radical, democratic and therefore anti-Communist.

    Lies by Herbert Matthews, Feb 1957 NYT.

    Something obviously changed after the war.

    …All these pretences and lies have collapsed together. The most squirming apologists now will not be able to convince anyone but idiots of their sincerity. At last the issue stands clear. Hitlerism is brown communism, Stalinism is red Fascism. The world will now understand the the only real “ideological” issue is one between democracy, liberty and peace on the one hand and despotism, terror and war on the other.

    “Trump Urges Unity Vs. Racism,” was the correct description in the first headline by the Failing New York Times, but it was quickly changed to, “Assailing Hate But Not Guns,” after the Radical Left Democrats went absolutely CRAZY! Fake News – That’s what we’re up against…..”This is an astounding development in journalism. I’ve never seen it happen before, I’ve just never seen anything like this! Is that journalism today? I don’t think so!” Mark Penn, Former Clinton Advisor.
    @TuckerCarlson
    After 3 years I almost got a good headline from the Times!

    “Anger a conservative by lying to him. Anger a progressive by telling him the truth.”

    Anger a Green by not acquiescing to their demands.

  17. FMD. We truly are living in 1984 on hyper-steroids where newspaper articles are changed ON THE SAME DAY.

    “Meanwhile, the Dayton, Ohio, shooter had a history of supporting political figures like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and ANTIFA.”
    @OANN
    I hope other news outlets will report this as opposed to Fake News. Thank you!

    Why pay for lies? I think the shareholders are asking the same question.

    Gee, I wonder who runs the NYT? Probably not permitted to notice.

    RTWT. I can’t wait for Politifact and Snopes to ‘factcheck’ this fine article…

    The brown and black shirts changed their names to Post Modernists, took up almost all the positions in our institutions and recruited all the fat, ugly low IQ beta females and cuck beta males who couldn’t get a root in a brothel.

    The Fashos and Commos can no longer stir the majority against the well off because the majority are the well off. So they stir women against men, gay against straight, black against white etc.
