The Gray Lady Shows Her Slip

The Gray Lady Shows Her Slip

  Followers of this website need not be reminded of the baleful influence the New York Times has had upon immigration policy debates for the better part of five decades. However, the recent flurry of extraconstitutional edicts promulgated by the Obama administration regarding this subject has led its editorial board to engage in even...

The Legacy Media Falls Down On The Job Again

The Legacy Media Falls Down On The Job Again

As we noted in our last action alert, the open borders mob decided to mobilize this past weekend in hopes of reenergizing its crusade to abolish the last remnants of American immigration enforcement. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the sparsely attended demonstrations failed to capture the full attention of a news media intent upon crafting their own...

Two Americans (A Postscript)

Two Americans (A Postscript)

One of the most frustrating aspects of the immigration monologue that’s unfolded over the past few years is the inability of one side-representing those who are committed to open borders and an uninterrupted stream of mass immigration-to acknowledge the legitimacy of the concerns expressed by their opponents, despite the fact that they constitute a...

Popping The Media Bubble

A great symposium sponsored by the Center for Immigration Studies, featuring the inimitable Mickey Kaus, which examines the self-serving narrative constructed by journalists in order to manipulate news coverage of immigration issues.

Aside from the contemporary,...

Gray Lady Down

It should come as no surprise that the New York Times continues to flounder under the leadership of Arthur Sulzberger Jr., notwithstanding the newspaper of record’s recent decision to install a pay wall for selected online content.

Multiculturalism Revisited

Multiculturalism Revisited

The debt crisis currently afflicting the developed world, particularly Western European nations like Greece and Italy, has been the top news story for much of this year. However, even as we debate whether Greece should remain part of the European Union, or whether Silvio Berlusconi should be forced to resign, you might recall that just...

William McGowan, author of Gray Lady Down: What the Decline and Fall of the New York Times Means for America, spoke to American Rattlesnake about immigration and how it has been covered by the newspaper. He explained the basic premise of the book, and how the New York Times has betrayed its long journalistic tradition as...

The Old Gray Lady: Down for the Count?

The Old Gray Lady: Down for the Count?

Tuesday night I had the pleasure of attending a discussion held at New York City’s Penn Club, sponsored by the Center for Immigration Studies, which featured one of my favorite journalists/media critics, William McGowan. The author of Gray Lady Down: What the Decline and Fall of the New York Times Means for America, Mr. McGowan...
