Unbelievable.

(Not Really)

The Hill

“The New York Times has begun re-enforcing a standing policy that forbids reporters and editors from appearing on cable news opinion programs deemed too partisan, a list that includes MSNBC’s “Rachel MaddowShow,” according to a Vanity Fair report.

The story includes an anecdote about the Times’s finance editor David Enrich being invited to appear on Maddow’s prime-time program earlier this month to discuss a report regarding President Trump, Jared Kushnerand allegedly suspect transactions involving Deutsche Bank before Trump took office.

After Enrich agreed to appear he was instructed to back out by his superiors.
“The Times was wary of how viewers might perceive a down-the-middle journalist like Enrich talking politics with a mega-ideological host like Maddow,” reads the report by Joe Pompeo, who went on say that a Maddow producer was “miffed about the cancellation,” according to sources.”
There is nothing partisan about telling the facts.
To paraphrase Harry Truman:
“I told the truth and they said it was partisan.”
Shame on you NY Times.

So now it has become wrong for the press to discuss opinions no matter what the source or political stance.The New York Times has now lost all claim to being a legitimate impartial news source. Forbidding it’s reporters from seeking any and all opinions on topics of the day is nothing more than fascism. See Joseph Goebbels and the Nazi takeover and suppression of the press in the 1930s and 40s.
