The New York Instances exhibits her true colours by giving Kellyanne Conway a platform
The New York Times showed that she is doing everything she can to bring Trump back into the White House by giving a platform to unemployed Trump liar Kellyanne Conway.
The Times titled Conway’s essay “The Cases for and Against Donald Trump.”
So began this supposedly impartial look at Trump 2024, after initially ignoring Russian interference in the 2016 election: “Trump derangement syndrome is real. There is no vaccine and no booster for it. Spoiled in their social media bubbles and comforted in self-selected communities suffering from uniformity, those affected disguise their hatred of Mr. Trump as a righteous call for justice or a solemn love of democracy and country.”

Americans trying to protect democracy from a man trying to stage a coup to stay in power in 2020 are just Trump haters.
Conway goes on and on. There is no need to dissect the entire essay because anyone who has seen Kellyanne Conway knows where this is headed.
The New York Times does not disclose Conway’s past work for Trump and his service to his campaign in the fine print below until the end of the essay because it does the newspaper no good to publish a piece of Trump propaganda if readers are informed about it in advance become the author’s lack of objectivity.
The Times’ readership is older, whiter, wealthier and more liberal than the rest of America. The New York Times and Washington Post are struggling to stay relevant without Trump.
The Times continues to employ pro-Trump Maggie Haberman, whose sole purpose is to relay Trump tidbits and gossip, much of it most likely from the man himself.
However, giving Kellyanne Conway a platform on which to twist and lie is a whole other level of Trump endorsement, hidden behind a thin pretense of journalism.
Just because a media company is a big company that tells you to trust them doesn’t mean they should be trusted. The goal of these legacy media giants is to make money, and if they have to help Donald Trump and his allies destroy democracy to achieve their goal, they will.
