NY Times Reporters: ‘‘F**k the Military, ‘ Promote anti-Semitism, and Tweet the ‘N-Word’


From the Daily Caller News Foundation:

The NYT knowingly employs journalists who use vulgar language to deride the military, float anti-Semitic conspiracies, and use racial slurs on Twitter, The Daily Caller has learned.

Further, the NYT communications department refused to acknowledge, defend or disavow the tweets in several emails from the Caller. Nor would the journalists themselves respond to requests for comment.

He shared an article from the Moroccan Times, tweeting, “Former CIA Agent: “The ISIS Leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi Was Trained by the Israeli Mossad.”

The Daily Caller reached out to all three reporters as well as The New York Times’ press contacts, but did not receive any comments by press time.

The Times issued a new social media policy last October that lists one of its key points as, “In social media posts, our journalists must not express partisan opinions, promote political views, endorse candidates, make offensive comments or do anything else that undercuts The Times’s journalistic reputation.”
