New York Times (the journalistic version of a “Karen”) whines to TikTok to censor Americans


The following includes editorial content which is the opinion of the writer. 

NEW YORK, NY- The Federalist reports that the New York Times actually asked TikTok, the social media app famous for being tied to the Chinese Communist Party, as well as getting people injured or maimed through it’s brain-dead “TikTok challenges, to censor Americans who expressed concerns over election integrity on the platform.

A recent Times article, “On TikTok, Election Misinformation Thrives Ahead of Midterms,” written by Times writer Tiffany Hsu complains how “TikTok is shaping up to be a primary incubator of baseless and misleading information” [read anything that isn’t woke and liberal] ahead of the November 2022 midterms, noting the issue of voter fraud is a prominent topic shared on the platform.

However Hsu buries deep inside the article the fact the Times actually reached out to the Chinese Communist Party-connected social media company and that as a result of that outreach, TikTok began the process of censoring users from using a popular hashtag associated with fears about election interference.

“Baseless conspiracy theories about certain voter fraud in November are widely viewed on TikTok, which globally has more than a billion active users each month,” the article reads.

“Users cannot search the #StopTheSteal hashtag, but #StopTheSteallll had accumulated nearly a million views until TikTok disabled the hashtag after being contacted by The New York Times.

In other words, the paper which brags about being “All the News That’s Fit to Print” acted in the capacity of a journalistic “Karen,” complaining to the “manager” about content which didn’t fit its political narrative.

Hsu, who might just be a “Karen” herself, goes on to complain that TikTok failed to address so-called “misinformation” in foreign elections, using those in France and Australia as examples.

“The app [also] struggled to tamp down on disinformation ahead of last week’s presidential election in Kenya,” Hsu complained, referencing a report by Odanga Madung, a researcher for the Mozilla Foundation.

“Mr. Madung cited a post on TikTok that included an altered image of one candidate holding a knife to his neck and wearing a blood-streaked shirt, with a caption that described him as a murderer. The post garnered more than half a million views before it was removed.”

So how exactly is TikTok tied to the Chinese Communist Party? Senior Contributor Helen Raleigh of The Federalist reported the company “is owned by ByteDance, a Beijing-based internet company” and “collects an enormous amount of data on its users, including IP addresses, browsing history, and biometric information.”

ByteDance claims that American user data “is safe because it is stored on U.S. soil,” however that statement is disingenuous. China’s national intelligence law specifically requires that “all Chinese tech companies must turn over any data they collect if the government demands it.”

Raleigh continued:

“[A] recent BuzzFeed News report, based on leaked internal TikTok meetings, show that ByteDance’s Chinese employees have repeatedly accessed nonpublic U.S. user data,” she said. “One employee of TikTok’s trust and safety department said in a September 2021 meeting that ‘Everything is seen in China.’”

This of course isn’t the first time the New York Times has been involved with TikTok and by extension the CCP. For example, late last year, The Federalist writes, the Times got itself in hot water after it appeared to downplay Chinese President Xi Jinping’s role in the genocide of Uyghur Muslims in the Xinjiang region of China.

“For unknown reasons, the New York Times appears to have intentionally withheld documents that directly linked top Chinese Communist Party officials, including General Secretary Xi Jinping, to the ongoing genocide of Uyghur Muslims in the Xianjiang Uygur Autonomous Region,” wrote Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) in a letter to the publisher of the New York Times, A.G. Sulzberger.

“In those now-released ‘Top Secret’ transcripts—documents that the New York Times has allegedly had in its possession since at least 2019—Xi explicitly authorized changing local counterterrorism laws, rounding up and sentencing Uyghurs, the use of forced sterilization, and the use of slave labor in Xinjiang.”

As expected, the Times denies these accusations, with Assistant Managing Editor for International Michael Slackman complaining that Rubio was “simply wrong on the facts.”

But if it waddles like a duck…and quacks like a duck…it’s a duck.

The following contains editorial content within which is the opinion of the writer.

WASHINGTON, DC- Law Enforcement Today, citing a Revolver News piece has previously reported on the number of “unindicted co-conspirators,” many believed to be federal agents, who were at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, and who were more than mere observers in the events which took place on that date.

While much of that reporting has been dismissed as “conspiracy theories,” one thing we have learned is that what was a conspiracy theory yesterday is a fact today. Now, that “conspiracy” theory seems to have gained some traction, courtesy of a reporter for the New York Times, who unwittingly admitted as much.

Breitbart News is reporting that a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter from the Lady in Gray claimed, “There were a ton of FBI informants amongst the people” at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 according to a video released by Project Veritas.

Ironically, that reporter, Matthew Rosenberg, co-wrote an article titled, “The Next Big Lies: Jan. 6 Was No Big Deal, or a Left-Wing Plot.”

That article, co-written by Rosenberg, the Times’s national security correspondent, suggested that reports by conservative outlets that “the F.B.I. planted agents to stir up the crowd” was a “false flag,” “instant rewriting of history,” and a ‘reimagining” of January 6. Except in the case of Rosenberg, he meant none of it.

During an undercover conversation with a reporter from Project Veritas, Rosenberg said numerous times that the New York Times “went and uncovered the fact that like, there were a ton of FBI informants amongst the people who attacked the Capitol.” Things that make you go hmmm.

Rosenberg continued to explain that the outlet is going around bans intelligence agencies place on their people speaking with reporters by contacting those “who have recently left who are still talking to people on the inside [CIA/NSA] because people on the inside [CIA/NSA] cannot talk.”

Project Veritas released portions of the video, in which Rosenberg explained how he got “sucked into” writing an article on the January 6 anniversary by his managing editor at the Times. Rosenberg talked about a story he was involved in at the time which James O’Keefe, Project Veritas’s founder, identified as The Next Big Lies report.

“The story I got sucked into doing is like, I usually work for—I do investigative stuff. I usually do longer-term things, but I’m like I got back to work on Monday, and my managing editor had a great idea that he could’ve had a month ago. Cause he was like, ‘We should really—me and a colleague had done like a very like long seven-thousand word story last year in February about like kind of the ‘Big Lie,’ about the ‘Stop the Steal’ campaign, which was a very organized campaign. It wasn’t like an organic thing.

“He’s like, ‘Can we do like part two of that, like, what’s going on a year since January 6th, kind of like memory-holing it.’ Like maybe ‘it’s no big deal.’ Yeah. We can do that. IT’s like a little quick turnaround.

So that’s what we’ve been doing the last few days.”

Rosenberg then went on in the recording to talk about how he believes the left overreacted to the January 6 Capitol Riot, an event he referred to as “fun.”

“The left’s overreaction, the left’s reaction to it [Jan. 6], in some places, was so over the top. It was like, me and two other colleagues who were there [Jan. 6th], who were outside and we were just having fun,” Rosenberg said. “Dude, come on, like you [NYT staff] were not in any danger [on Jan 6],” he continued.

The reporter from Project Veritas then asked Rosenberg about characterizing the Capitol siege as “fun,” asking him, “Are you allowed to have that much fun on January 6th? Aren’t you supposed to be mourning?”

In response, Rosenberg blamed the New York Times’s younger reporters, accusing them of presenting a “false sense” of danger while exaggerating their trauma from being present at the Capitol on Jan. 6.

“I know, I know, I’m supposed to be traumatized. But like all these colleagues who were in the [Capitol] building, and they’re young and are like, ‘Oh my Gog it was so scary!’ I’m like, ‘Fuck off,’” he said.

Rosenberg continued, telling the Project Veritas reporter that the Times wasn’t the type of work environment where he could tell his younger colleagues to “man up,” Breitbart said of the interview.

“It’s [the NYT] not the kind of place I can tell somebody to man up, but I kind of want to be like, ‘Dude, come on, like, you were not in any danger,’” Rosenberg recalled.

He then called out five New York Times co-workers by name and slammed them for exaggerating the “trauma” they endured on that day. He specifically identified Zolan Kanno Youngs, Adam Goldman and Sabrina Tabernise, referring to them as “fucking little dweebs who kept going on about their trauma. Shut the fuck up!”

He then identified two additional reporters from the Times, Emily Cochrane and Nick Fandos when asked by the Project Veritas reporter about which reporters from the outlet had written about their trauma.

“I don’t know if they wrote about their trauma. This chick named Emily Cochrane and this guy named Nick Fandos, who are both in their twenties. They cover Congress. So, like congressional reporters. Fuckin’ bitches,” Rosenberg is reported to have said.
