New York Post Gives Heck to
The New York Times

April 19, 2023 --

In its lead April 18 editorial, "NYT's Absurd Hit on Fox," the New York Post sharply rebuked the Times for accusing Fox News (owned by Rupert Murdoch, along with the Post and other newspapers) of "misinformation."

The occasion was the start of the $1.6 billion defamation trial against Fox News, brought by Dominion Voting Systems. As it happened, later on April 18, Fox News settled with Dominion Voting for $787.5 million.).

The editorial pointed out, in part, that not only does the Times "spread muck and bunk; misinformation has been s big commercial winner for the paper of record. From the get-go (from Paul Krugman's 2016 'Siberian Candidate' days after Trump's nomination), the Times has been among the worst spreaders of false, shoddily-sourced claims about Trump and his suppressed Russia-connected misdeeds, including the totally-fabricated Steele dossier [paid-for by Hillary Clinton's campaign.]"

The editorial went on to cite the attempt by the Times to discredit the factual New York Post story about the contents Hunter Biden's laptop, Times backing of false claims about dealing with Covid-19 and pushing disinformation on the establishment of the country.

LPR would like to see the Times sue the Post for defamation for stating, in the April 18 editorial: "[The New York Times] even shamelessly shared a Pulitzer for coverage of nonexistent Russia interference in the 2016 election." False coverage that amounted itself to leftist interference in the 2016 election.

Here is the link to the despicable Krugman column, July 2016, suggesting that as president Mr. Trump would be Putin's agent.


The rest of the paper's propagandists promoted all manner of lies about Donald Trump throughout the 2016 election and to this very day. At the Times, "Only Lies About Donald J. Trump Are Fit to Print."

LPR regrets that Murdoch's Post is not as vigorous defending Mr. Trump from vicious phony attack as it was on point in defending Fox News from the liars who have made a mockery of the idea that the Times once served as the country's "paper of record."
