New York Times Editor Concerned About Private Bias Being Exposed…

New York Times Deputy Managing Editor Clifford Levy is worried about journalists being questioned, and exposed, by other mysterious unknown planetary journalists from the rising Generation Z, ie. college students.

Levy sends tin-foil-hat warning about the vast conspiracy to his narrative engineers:

If you find yourself thinking this mindset has a similarity to Clintonian-level paranoia, well, you would be accurate in the comparison.  Apparently ideological liberal journalists privately discuss fears of their ideologically liberal journalism becoming public.  Note the line:

“We all know it’s important to remain fair and politically impartial in our public statements”.

              I think it is a social construct. Made up so they can feel superior. All of them seem extremely snobby. The Leftists have utter contempt and disdain for Conservatives. We are held to a much higher standard than any Liberal….ever. Which leads to my observation on Obama vs Trump in the media….

              Just something I noticed. It appears that in their own “special interest” way the MSM held our first African-American President to a much lower standard than they do President Trump. If Obama messed up, they treated him like a kid with special considerations. Obama is and was never held to the higher standard that President Trump is.

              Real slap in the face of equality. Wonder if they realize how racist that is?

But what is really troubling is the smart people still believe in the NYTimes which is quite astounding. They somehow maintain logic in their profession on a daily basis but go entirely on their ‘feelings’ when it comes to politics and the news media. You can sit one of these people down and present one piece of evidence after another and three days later they still would vote for Hillary or Bernie.

        I think it may have to do with right brain versus left brain dominance. The Left brain hemisphere is logical the Right brain hemisphere is emotional. The Political Left stimulate the Right brain with their propaganda. While the Political Right simply cannot understand the Political Left.

They can try but they won’t win because we along with Trump are draining the Congress swamp as well as many others. They are rich fools and won’t be elected but probably by our impeaching them and setting us up OUR OWN PARTY and refreshing the Congress our Constitution and Founding Fathers gave us and these have criminalized it and we have had it. More gnashing of teeth to come when they continue to try and block Trump and he tells them to go you know where. He is the CEO/President and they are merely our employees and don’t have the power they think they have. They blew it and now rectification is going to happen!

        I don’t “do” twitter, so forgive me if this is nonsense. But I do go there a few times a day to read selected people’s output.

        If I understand it correctly, “shadow banning” causes an interruption of notification to you about recent postings from specified people you have chosen, rather than actually blocking display of their stuff to anyone like me who just goes to their page.

        If that’s right, it seems like it’d be simple to write some code to just repeatedly check those selected pages at specified intervals for new posts, and if found, copy them to a page that would be sent to you (or otherwise viewed by you). Perhaps such a utility already exists?

          Yes – what you are saying is exactly why it would be possible to build front-ends to a Twitter API that simply exported their data and let other people create a new face to it. Very much like gas and electricity resellers.

          I am guessing, however, knowing how tricky and slimy they are at Twitter (imagine the most lying tech SJWs you can, with a pasted on smile as they stab you in the back and claim to be unarmed), that such a thing would be “accidentally” defeated. So it needs force of law – meaning Bannon’s idea (and my elaboration of it) of “regulating freedom and non-censorship into the system”.

          So – if somebody else offered a way to access the twitter databases at data speeds comparable to what we can get from Twitter, they would have to provide the data, and not subvert attempts to get past their censorship model.

          • bofh says:

            Well, when you think about it, how much speed do you really need? I guess everyone likes to feel like they’ve “first to know” but wouldn’t it be adequate to make a polling sweep of targeted accounts every five or ten minutes or so? Or make it smarter, and let it re-poll accounts much more frequently when they appear to be active.

            Or just have it send you a link to SD’s page (for instance) whenever it detects a new posting. Then instead of pushing a copy of it to you, you would go an read his page (pull). I guess it depends on whether you’re on a phone or sitting with desktop capabilities. Like I said, I don’t really do this stuff so I’m not in touch with the needs.

            And yes, I would expect twitter to fight back by making constant changes. But that sort of challenge is just what the autists should be looking for (ask Shia Lebouff about that!). Sort of how Youtube changes things to make it hard to directly download their stuff, but the apps are usually upgraded fairly soon to meet the new challenge each time.

              I think you’re right – I just think it will always remain a second-rate solution. And Twitter can still subvert things by impacting some people’s export and not others – UNLESS THAT IS ILLEGAL.

              I want the WHOLE SOLUTION. I don’t want to be distracted by chasing an easy hacky fix that works with their censorship. I want to STRIKE HARD right at the censorship itself, and say that monopoly censorship is wrong. I want to build in a non-censorship path that is just as Grade A as whatever they offer their censored customers. The free market cannot offer a true choice if one choice (free speech) is always hampered by the fact that Twitter got there first and then reneged on their free speech promises, and people have to base everything off a censored database. Same with Google, Facebook, etc.

              Twitter and Google have already worked very hard to try to kill the free-speech-embracing, Deplorable-run, Twitter alternative – Gab, https://gab.ai That is a full alternative to Twitter. The bad guys have used all kinds of tricks to try to bring Gab down.

              Note that Gab would likely coast right through any and all regulations that assure freedom.

              I will tell you this – if Gab could base on Twitter’s data and customer base, they would drive Twitter into the ground. Twitter is protected from competition by its preexisting exclusion – the fact that people chose it when there WERE no alternatives, and create a large population of tweeters unavailable to competitors.

              We are going to win this. They either drop their censorship shields internally and externally, on their own, or we make that the law. Personally, I like the legal solution, because I think we can get rid of spiked journalism, too. Freedom of information needs to be part of the American solution. Whack these commies head-on. No more sneaky censorship, outsourced to Silicon Valley.

                I agree that a hack like this is a very second-rate solution to the problem, and that legal change would be fantastic. But that is not realistically going to happen in a reasonable time period. This is non-trivial stuff. Can you imagine the congress (even if they really wanted to help, which they won’t/don’t) making anything useful of this? Imagine a monkey trying to fix a wristwatch. Equally futile.

                Gab is a nice idea but just doesn’t seem to be acquiring any momentum, or at least enough momentum to pressure twitter. At least that’s the impression I get.

    They are messing around with the Lion’s Cubs!

    Generation Z are considered to be the most conservative generation sincw WWII!

    http://www.cnsnews.com/commentary/eric-metaxas/next-generation-americans-gen-z-may-be-most-conservative-wwii

    From the article linked above:

    For at least a decade, Millennials have been stereotyped as lazy, entitled, and stuck on social media. While that may not be entirely fair, they are notoriously liberal, overwhelmingly supporting left-leaning candidates and favoring policies like nationalized healthcare and same-sex “marriage.”

    But Millennials are also getting old—relatively speaking. The first are now reaching the ripe old age of thirty-five! And sometime between 1995 and 2000, the millennial generation ended, or at least stopped being born, and a new generation began.

    Members of “Generation Z” are now beginning to graduate high school, and 2016 was the first time any of them were old enough to vote. At seventy million and counting, they’re also about to outnumber their predecessors.

    So, what’s so intriguing about this new brood? Well, according to a growing body of research, they may be, by certain measures, the most conservative generation since World War II—more than Millennials, Generation Xers and even the Baby-Boomers.

    Gen Z kids are “digital natives.” They’ve never known life without the Internet, and have grown up surrounded by instant access to the world’s harsh realities on their smart phones.

    These young people are products of conflict and recession. They can only remember a news cycle “marred by economic stress, rising student debt … and war overseas.” As a result, they’ve taken on what one team of Goldman-Sachs analysts called a “more pragmatic” and conservative outlook on the world.

    Of course, generalizations at this stage are very early and very subject to development. But according to polling in the wake of the 2016 election, Gen Z Americans didn’t vote like their Millennial predecessors. Eight out of ten of these kids identify themselves as “fiscally conservative,” and they prefer saving to spending—at rates not seen since the Silent Generation.

  29. When you are in control of your own destiny and make a conscience choice to run yourself into he ground, should anyone care?

    When the “Fake News” started they were as always, in control of the narrative. Did they look back and reflect? Did they make any effort to change the public perception? Did they have a meeting and look at ways to improve what they do?

    NO, they doubled down! In a disgusting display of their own arrogance, they didn’t care about what they reported. Didn’t care if it was true or not. And didn’t care at all if it was completely one sided.

    Now we have this memo. Be very careful. Others from the right or those who just seek the truth are going to use our own tricks and our own methods to make us all look bad. As bad as we really are.
    It’s like the old adage, A liar believes no one.

    The fear they have is that the truth will be exposed. But if you were honestly doing your job, there would be nothing to expose at all.
    You’d welcome everyone to come in and talk to you. You’d want that to prove how honest your reporting really was.
    It would be one of those rare times being exposed would give you even more credibility.

    I’m on an old computer at this moment and the old Wall Street Journal links come up as paid sites so that won’t work. The wayback machine doesn’t process my request. Other sites reference her columns but don’t link to them.

    So any columns where Peggy gushes about Obama would be great but especially the one where she endorses him.

    How is it that there are no standards for the MSM? Every other profession has them. Nursing, doctors, lawyers, dentists, accountants, brokers, etc.

    There is already a website that gives them guidance. Who knew they were supposed to have a code of ethics? Maybe it should be codified in the industry with a committee to uphold these standards. Then they wouldn’t have to worry if visitors show up.

    If you tell the truth, there’s nothing to hide….it all comes out whether true or false. Be truthful in communications and reporting.

    Sounds to me like a statement that is made after you fear the damage is already done. The fact they think they need to remind their staff to pretend to be non-partisan tells you all you need to know.

    I have a beloved family member who has autism, among other severe disabilities. We repeat the exact same conversations over and over on a daily basis, day in day out, for years……

    My theory is that when a pediatrician, psychologist or teacher identifies a student as falling somewhere on the autism spectrum, the guidance counselor advises their best career path is journalism.

    Asperger’s Syndrome falls on the autism spectrum. Asperger’s sufferers are literal in the extreme. They do not read emotion well and never “get the joke.” Sound familiar?

      I sometimes wonder if this is true. When Obama appointed Monsanto over the FDA, I figured we will never know.

      So what are GMOs? To put it simply, they’re plants and seeds created in laboratories. Genetic engineers insert genes from bacteria, viruses, animals, or humans into the DNA of a food crop or animal to create an organism that would never occur in nature. Biotech companies do this for two main reasons: to make crops that are tolerant to herbicides such as RoundUp that kill other plants, and to make crops that produce their own insecticides.

      The FDA’s own scientists actually warned that these never-before-seen foods could create new toxins and new allergens and needed to be more thoroughly tested, but their concerns were largely ignored. Instead, the US government took the official position that GM foods were “substantially equivalent” to conventional foods and didn’t require safety testing or labeling—in sharp contrast to 40 other countries that require such foods be clearly labeled. Commercial planting of genetically modified seeds in the United States began in 1996, and soon after, food products containing GMOs began appearing on store shelves, mostly without our knowledge.

    Every political interview (all media) should begin with these questions – what party are you registered with, who did you vote for in the recent presidential election.
