The New York Times had said it didn’t want to be an ‘echo chamber of Liberalism’ — so they hire THIS guy?
Politico reporter Glen Thrush called himself a hack in an email to John Podesta. Thrush is the reported that was sending articles to be vetted by Hillary’s camp before publication.
We know this not because of the free press, but via WikiLeaks.
Thrush is now on the New York Times staff and will be covering the White House.
Well, there won’t be any bias there, right?
Politico’s Glenn Thrush, who was exposed in WikiLeaks emails sending stories to Hillary Clinton staffers before publication, will be joining the New York Times to cover the White House, The Huffington Post reported Monday.
“We’re thrilled that Glenn Thrush is joining The Times,” Elisabeth Bumiller, The New York Times’ Washington bureau chief, told The Huffington Post. “He’s a premier political journalist, a master of breaking news and long-form story telling and a stellar addition to our White House team.”
While Bumiller described Thrush as a “premier political journalist,” in one email to Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta, Thrush chose to describe himself as a “hack.”
“No worries Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to u,” Thrush wrote to Podesta in an April 2015 email. “Please don’t share or tell anyone I did this Tell me if I fucked up anything.”…
…Clinton’s campaign Jennifer Palmieri also got to look over Thrush’s writing. In another April 2015 email, Thrush wrote, “pls read asap — the [Jennifer Palmieri] bits — don’t share.” This email included eight paragraphs of uncritical writing on Palmieri.
Palmieri forwarded Thrush’s email to Podesta and campaign manager Robby Mook among other staffers, and said, “He did me courtesy of sending what he is going to say about me. Seems fine.”
The portions Thrush emailed Palmieri ended up mostly unchanged in the column “Quiet, please. Hillary’s running.” That story includes the line, “Palmieri (who laughed off a request to participate in this story) enjoys a good relationship with reporters.”

Thrush has already made several statements that show his bias.
In a retweet, he implied Trump was racist:
Exactly MT @Rtalkiman: so black people are to blame because they oppose a racist?
It's the voters fault and not the candidate's? Ok.”

On Trump’s acceptance speech for the Republican nomination, Thrush wrote:
‘Your assessment of the quality of Trump’s speech is entirely dependent on how low you set the bar.’
Dems having a hard time accepting: a clear majority of white Americans are aware of Trump’s racist/xenophobic comments and back him anyway.
The New York Times is apparently determined to peddle tremendously biased news and denounce ‘fake news’ — which is anything that doesn’t agree with their worldview.
The subscription rate for the NYT is down. It turns out that people don’t like the condescending tone used regarding Trump supporters. It’s deplorable that millions of voters are seen as racist, misogynist, xenophobic bigots because they didn’t vote for Hillary.
The Media (D) still doesn’t get it.
You guys go ahead keep doing what you’re doing, because you won’t be doing it for much longer.
