The optics are as bad as they look

Dean "The Optics aren't as bad as they look" Baquet just confirmed that he actually doesn't do his job any more. He doesn't decide what is on the front page of the New York Times. He doesn't explain what he does (except force reporters to tone down their story on the Trump campaigns connections to Russia until it falsely asserted that the FBI had found no clear links *after* the FBI had obtained 2 FISC warrants based on probable cause to believe two Trump campaign employees (one of them campaign chairman) were foreign agents).

Look if he isn't willing to edit, maybe his job should be eliminated as he eliminated the public editor breaking a solemn promise to readers and destroying the paper's credibility which can only be restored if he is fired.

Also he presents a false dichotomy (an error of thought more common than any other error of thought or any valid method of thought). He asserts (without any evidence or logic) that the only choice of for the Times to continue to do what it has been doing or to act as the opposition to Trump.

He doesn't even consider the possiblity that it could act like a serious newspaper and not quote unreliable sources without fact checking (even if the demonstrably unreliable source happens to be President). He assumes that the most recent claims must be reported without noting the proof that they are lies. Basically his position is that the facts don't matter, or maybe that they must not be reported, because they have a liberal bias.

I think it is very important that Baquet be fired immediately.

I really want to appreciate Dr Ekpen of Ekpen Temple for restoring my broken relationship within 48 hours. It all started when I find out that my husband is cheating on me, when I try to confront him about it, the whole thing just got worst, because I love him so much I did not want to lose him to someone else so I went looking for solution that's how I came across Dr Ekpen who restore love back to my marriage. Contact him at (ekpentemple@gmail.com) if you are having challenges in your relationship.

The spammers have found your blog, or at least one of them, to state the obvious. Keeps making the same comment like a robot, but gets around CAPTCHA somehow, which I think is going to catch me one of these times as my eyes aren't very good anymore.

Anyway, three cheers for getting rid of Baquet or the NY TImes or both. (In case you read comments which apparently you don't always.)

Hi everyone I'm Mrs Katrina Bennett, My husband divorced me 2 years ago to live with another woman and i have tried have him back but i could not, so i try to do many things to get him back and he refuse to come back. One faithful Friday morning, I visit a forum for tips on how to get your Ex back and there i saw a lady testifying on how Dr.alusi helped her to get her husband back after he was tie down with a spell by another woman. Although I never believed in spiritual work I reluctantly tried him because I was desperate and i contact him and explain my problems to him, to my greatest surprise Dr.alusi helped me to bring back my husband after 5days and now my relationship is more perfect just as he promised. Getting your ex back permanently does not only bring back someone you love but it will also reunite your lovers feelings. My husband now treats me like a Queen and always says he loves me all the time. If you are passing through difficulties in your relationship, Doctor alusi can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and some other things.I can assure he's highly potent and reliable. Email him for urgent help [dr.alusistanley@gmail.com] or +2348146050373.

Herpes Virus is a terrible virus, if not for my Husband and the help of the great Dr.Alabi my life would have been a mess! I was diagnose with Herpes virus in 2012, my husband encouraged me, and told me not to lose hope, I manage to give birth to a baby Boy who was free from this virus, and my Husband was always there for me! One day he came to me and told me that he have found a man who can cure me. Base on scientist, they said there is no cure for Herpes virus; he told me that he has seen many testimonies about him on the internet. We decided to contact him, we filled his Herbal home form, and he asked us to buy some local root and herbs items which we did! and he prepared for me a herbal medicine and 14 days later he asked me to go for medical test, faithfully hopefully i went for the medical test, and Behold, I was cured, from this virus and its was not found in my Body system again... My Dear Husband and my Father Dr.Alabi, God will surely bless the both of you, till the end of time, in Jesus name.. If you have any problem kindly contact Dr Alabi via his email (Dr.Alabiherbalhome@yahoo.com) or whatsapp him on +1{810}4982897 for any kind of help......

before my husband came back to me after 3 months of separation, i have cried a lot and my life was miserable, things were not good in my sight I could not concentrate, all what i was thinking is if i could get my husband back, this thinking of getting him back, make's me look for solutions everywhere, even on the Internet after searching for solutions online, one faithful day i saw Dr. AFRID Spell Temple contact, which i contacted and told them my problems they asked of My details, which I summit, after some hours Iv received a message that your spell casting is free, but I will be responsible for the items needed for the spell, after the items were bought and received by the spell caster, within 7 hours he message me on whatsapp that he has cast the spell and asked me to wait for 48 hours.
luckily i haven't change my mobile number,but i was thinking my husband has deleted the number he could use to reach me,i deleted his number from my phone,the disputes we had that lead to the separation was ghastly, i never thought we could be together again, if not the help of this great spell caster,one day i saw a message on my phone when i woke up it was early in the morning the message contained an apologies, that i should forgive him for everything he has done to me to me i don't know who sent such message because the number look strange to me so i call the sender back and behold the person's voice i heard was the voice of my husband i was angry at first because i don't want him to know that i missed him after he apologize and said he promised to be a better man this time and also said he will never let me cry i never believe him,since he came back i noticed something that my husband has change a lot he is now the dream husband i always dream off, i just want to thank god and the genuine spell caster he connected me with, right now i can say that all my problems are over smile has always be on my face i can't thank you enough sir,That was how I got the love of my life back we are both happy together thanks to Dr AFRID God bless you,for relationship advise reach the spell caster for assistant Via, drafridherbalhome11@gmail.com
