‘A Child Mob Is In Charge Of The NYT’: Cotton Slams Paper Of Record After Op-Ed Turmoil

Courtesy of ZeroHedge View original post here.

Update (2003ET): A ‘child mob’ is in charge of the New York Times according to Senator Tom Cotton (R-AK), who appeared on Fox News to discuss the paper’s internal civil war in which young, ‘woke’ staff are revolting over Cotton’s Op-Ed calling for the military to support US police forces during civil unrest, while older NYT staff argue that divergent opinions from their own deserve a platform.

“My Op-Ed doesn‘t meet the New York Times‘ standards,” said Cotton. “It far exceeds their standards, which are normally full of left-wing, sophomoric drivel,” he added.

Cotton then slammed the paper’s editor and publisher for flip-flopping on their decision to stand behind publishing Cotton’s commentary, only to fold like a cheap suit “in the face of the woke mob of woke kids that are in their newsroom.”

“The New York Times has run editorials from Vladimir Putin, Recep Erdogan, by the Taliban – no problem there. But run one editorial from Tom Cotton on a position that’s supported by 58% of the American people - that we have a duty to protect our citizens’ lives and livelihoods, well, ‘we’re gonna have to review our processes and we’re gonna cut the number of Op-Eds that we run,’ said Cotton.

A child mob truly is in charge at the New York Times tonight.

While the New York Times self-immolates over the Tom Cotton Op-Ed – which they now say “did not meet its standards due to a rushed editorial process,” a new Morning Consult poll shows that 58% of voters – including 48% of Democrats, say they support the use of US troops to supplement city cops amid the protests.

Clearly the Times is far too woke for their own good.

A long-simmering culture war at the New York Times, once the undisputed national paper of record, has burst into public view on Thursday as a group of young “woke” staffers at the paper denounced the opinion section’s decision to publish a column penned by GOP Sen. Tom Cotton urging President Trump to call in the military to restore order in cities across the US where violence and looting have broken out.

By now, more police officers have been killed since George Floyd’s murder after a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck, cutting off circulation. An autopsy report blamed the officer’s decision to pin Floyd to the ground by his throat as the cause of death. The office is now facing second degree murder and manslaughter charges. But leftists continue to insist that all opposition to the looting in violence is a fascist dog whistle. Whether you think Cotton is an incorrigible fascist, or you agree with his position, the notion that a small but vocal minority of the body politic is pushing for the active suppression of political speech.

In a twitter thread, NYT columnist Bari Weiss – who has frequently attracted the ire of the “woke”/DSA/Bernie Bro faction, which hates “neoliberals” just as much as it hates “conservatives” (aka fascists, since everybody who isn’t a “democratic” socialist is a fascist, in their view) – explains the division between the younger “woke” reporters/staffers, and the older liberals, with executive editor Dean Baquet, the paper’s first black executive editor, caught in the middle.







Of course, many of the NYT reporters and staffers who denounced the op-ed also denounced their colleague’s take. One reporter even said the very decision to print the op-ed put the paper’s black reporters “in danger”.
