    You be careful, girl.

    There's a reason I don't have any Democratic or liberal iconography on my car or home. You can't be too careful in a world where Nazis are obtaining outright support from LEO and the government.

    Who had this in their Future Dystopian pool? Turns out Neal Stephenson was boring compared to reality.
    Yeah but like how could an argument between a couple of small eastern European countries grow into something big?

    I for one am shocked that having enclaves and exclaves doesn't result in peace for all time.

    I liked that part, because in its day the NYT was better than you. When I moved to Boston and started reading the Globe instead of the Times it was as if the reading level had dropped from seventh to third grade. And the Boston Globe is, by national standards, a good paper. Compared to 98% of the newspapers in the country the Times was light years better in intelligence, style, and also coverage because it had bottomless (((pockets))).

    It was also written for upper middle class Long Island snobs, but that was great too because, generally speaking, they are better than you, too.

    The Times circa 1985 was one of 3 newspapers in the country written above the level of high school drop out cretin -- WaPo and WSJ were the other two. Even regional papers like the Chicago Trib and the LA Times were toddler scrawls serving the Great Unwashed.

    Note this is not a NYC thing: the NY Post and the Daily News were written for lobotomized sewer rats.

    But judging from all their f-ck ups the last 3 decades the Times is now just another piece of garbage masquerading as news while sending out 32-page color Sunday spreads on fashion and shopping. So please add them to the bonfire, too. The future of news is like snuff BDSM: online.

    Trust me you arent missing much...take CNN and remove all the personality and add a heaping helping of "we are better than you and we know it and you are too stupid to realize it!" and you get a general idea.

    Their issue now is the masses have better access to information so when the Times screws up they get dragged for it pretty badly. The amount of times they have been ripped for their ridiculous editorial mistakes and misinformation is kind of amazing. They are a paper filled with Maggie Haberman's...just begging to be close to power and speaking out of both side's of their mouth to try and placate everyone. That would work 30 years ago but in today's world it just doesn't fly.

    That I would believe. I stopped reading the NYT in the mid 80s so I have no idea, but I remember they have their favorites.

    Molly Ivins still has the definitive takedown of the NYT, if I can find it someplace.

    Yeah that isnt their reputation anymore and it certainly isnt how they write or act. They dont like any women. They despise the non-Hampton class in general, but they disrespect all women. At least that is what women seem to say...

    Your point 2 doesnt matter, they have had a vendetta against Hillary since the 90s. Come on man they didnt even leave their dislike of her out of the article they wrote about her house having a bomb sent to it.

    The NY Times hates Hillary (and women) so much they apparently forgot she ran for President in 2016. That paper is a joke...
    1. The NYT doesn't hate women. It's hates women who don't have property in the Hamptons.

    2. The NYT is Hillary. Elite, educated, wealthy, centrist, entitled, decrepit, self-important and clueless. (Yes, I know I am 7 out of 8.)
