Covering Trump’s impeachment, the Washington Post and the Associated Press best the New York...

I compared impeachment coverage from the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Associated Press on these three criteria: How did they assess and convey the significance of the act of impeachment? How did they describe the nature of the floor debate? What did they consider most newsworthy about Trump’s campaign rally?

The New York Times’s political coverage has completely imploded at the worst possible time

The New York Times’s three-year struggle to sustain its reporting algorithms, built for two political parties that have comparable relationships to reality, collapsed into sordid heap of nonsense over the weekend.

Another ridiculously credulous Trump headline – and article — from the New York Times*...

Peter Baker and Maggie Haberman accepted what White House officials said about a new executive order on face value. But their report, stating that Trump would order Judaism to be interpreted as a nationality, lacked appropriate skepticism about the motives behind the move -- and maybe about its meaning as well.

In the war on truth, the press can’t be an innocent bystander

New York Times tees up impeachment hearings with epic false equivalence and both-siderism

The paper of record takes a position of neutrality on what is true and what is not as it limbers up to cover the public phase of the impeachment process.

Weisman essentially asserted that urban areas -- not just Detroit and Minneapolis, but Atlanta, and Austin -- are not a part of America's geography at all. What's even more telling is that he obviously thought this was non-controversial -- even self-evident.

Biased or Lazy? New York Times Traffics in False Dichotomies About Democrats

The progressive vs. pragmatic, head vs. heart dichotomy is an insidious one. You are presuming an awful lot when you call something “pragmatic”; you are presuming that it will be effective -- indeed more effective than the alternative. Your are also presuming that the candidate calling for less radical change is the pragmatic one, and therefore a safer bet when it comes to electability. But that’s not necessarily pragmatism; that’s caution, or even timidity.
