The New York Times is actually two papers.
The domestic paper –anything having to do with policies at home– is a cartoon, an absurdist delight, the daily from Bizarro World.
The reporting from around the world by contrast is undeniably the most consistently necessary reads in the world.
Today’s headline and story on abortion and the 2014 election is an example of one of the most active, aggressive agenda-journalist platforms in the land, with a headline that would make an MSNBC producer blush.
Abortion rights aren’t among the most pressing issues in 2014. They aren’t actually on the top 10 of issues GOP candidates will be talking about. GOP candidates will be talking about Obamacare, the drag on the economy it creates, the assault on religious freedom is propelled forward, the variety of attacks on Americans flowing out of the IRS, the EPA and elsewhere, and of course the collapse of America’s position in the world.
Don’t expect the left, and its majorette the Times, to report this agenda accurately, but that is what it will be. Not the dream world the Times cooked up this morning.
