Former New York Times editor admits paper pushes ‘anti-Trump’ bias to make money

Jill Abramson, the former executive editor of the New York Times, says the newspaper has a definite anti-Trump liberal bias.

Jill Abramson, the former executive editor of the New York Times, says the liberal newspaper is definitely biased and has become “unmistakably anti-Trump.”

So basically, Ambramson confirmed widespread suspicions that the mainstream media are little more than leftist political operatives masquerading as “journalists.”

Abramson made the observations in her book, “Merchants of Truth,” where she says the New York Times trashes President Trump around the clock because he is a cash cow for them.

“Though [Dean] Baquet said publicly he didn’t want the Times to be the opposition party, his news pages were unmistakably anti-Trump,” Abramson wrote in her book, as excerpted by Fox News. “Some headlines contained raw opinion, as did some of the stories that were labeled as news analysis.”

Abramson — who was NYT executive editor from 2011 to 2014 — says the New York Times has a financial interest in constantly running negative Trump stories because they make money.

She noted that the New York Times enjoyed a massive “Trump bump” during his first six months in office, when its digital subscriptions rocketed to more than 2 million — that’s a whopping increase of 600,000 subscribers:

“Given its mostly liberal audience, there was an implicit financial reward for the Times in running lots of Trump stories, almost all of them negative: they drove big traffic numbers and, despite the blip of cancellations after the election, inflated subscription orders to levels no one anticipated.”

Jill Abramson’s comments mirror the observations of legendary journalist Ted Koppel — a liberal who slammed CNN and MSNBC for their nonstop negative coverage of Trump, saying their ratings would tank without Trump.

Koppel — a former ABC News anchor and winner of 25 Emmy Awards — said CNN and MSNBC need Trump because he’s the holy grail for monster ratings.

“Money, money… Donald Trump has been wonderful for the [media] industry,” Koppel told CNN hack Brian Stelter.

“You can’t do without Donald Trump! You would be lost without Donald Trump! CNN’s ratings would be in the toilet without Donald Trump.”
