Role In Gamergate

Sarkeesian article

Nyt sarkeesian article.jpg

On October 16 2014, the New York Times published an article by Nick Wingfield which editors gave the misleading headline "Feminist Critics of Video Games Facing Threats in 'GamerGate' Campaign".[1] The article was placed by the Bohle Company of Sue Bohle, the PR representative of Kate Edwards of IGDA.[2]

A member of Something Awful took credit for the "Goon-started drama" that reached the front page of the New York Times.[3]

Supporting letters

The New York Times received and published letters from three people connecting alleged harassment of Sarkeesian with those concerned about collusion and falsehoods in the media:[4]

Significance

Following the publication of this headline, most major media refused to mention any allegations of close relationships and undisclosed collusion between writers and developers, and would instead falsely claim that Gamergate was a harassment campaign.

Relationships

Later involvement

On May 1, 2015 the editorial board of the New York Times endorsed the HeartMob project of Emily May of Hollaback, and the Gamergate Autoblocker of Randi Harper which blocks Twitter users who have discussed Gamergate. [8]

The New York Times endorsed and repeated the complaint of GlobalTechWomen that Twitter held a party where beer was served in red plastic cups.[9]

After Mike Isaac wrote a straightforward news article on the resignation of Ellen Pao as CEO of Reddit, David Streitfeld rewrote the article to praise Pao as "a hero to many" for fighting "the entrenched sexist culture of Silicon Valley." [10]

Around April 2016 the New York Times began to demand access to the Facebook friends lists of users who wanted to leave comments on articles. [11]

In December 2016 Chris Sullentrop wrote an article denouncing Super Mario Run as "not a family-friendly game - or at least not one my wife and I will be letting our 6-year-old daughter play" due to the "stale, retrograde gender stereotypes" of Mario rescuing Princess Peach and Peach enjoying baking. [12]

Other Controversies

Falsification

Michael Cieply alleges that New York Times editors directed staff to force their reporting into a pre-defined "narrative."[13]

By and large, talented reporters scrambled to match stories with what internally was often called "the narrative." We were occasionally asked to map a narrative for our various beats a year in advance, square the plan with editors, then generate stories that fit the pre-designated line... Once, in the Los Angeles bureau, I listened to a visiting National staff reporter tell a contact, more or less: "My editor needs someone to say such-and-such, could you say that?"
The bigger shock came on being told, at least twice, by Times editors who were describing the paper's daily Page One meeting: "We set the agenda for the country in that room."

CAMERA accuses the New York Times of deliberately falsifying several aspects of the Arab-Israeli conflict.[14] The editors of the New York Times inserted a section into a tourism article on the Israeli city of Jaffa to falsely claim that Jews expelled Arabs from the city. [15]

Mixing Advertising and News

The New York Times fired executive editor Jill Abramson who had resisted plans by Mark Thompson to mix the advertising and news departments. Abramson was replaced by Dean Baquet. [16]

Dean Baquet, who has been executive editor of the paper since May 2014, says flatly that the traditional news-advertising divide has become a luxury the Times can no longer afford.

Islamist Bias

New York Times Magazine published a cover story by Nathan Thrall about the BDS movement. Thrall is the director of the Arab-Israeli Project at the International Crisis Group which received $4 million from Qatar in 2017-2018, and has a history of writing approvingly of Hamas.[17]

The New York Times published an opinion piece by Gehad el-Haddad, the official spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood, in which he described the fundamentalist movement as advocating "social justice, equality and the rule of law."[18]

Association with Iran

In 2015 the New York Times offers guided tours of Iran for $7,195. Members of the "Tales of Persia" tour would be accompanied by one of columnist Roger Cohen, editorial board member Carol Giacomo, or Paris correspondant Elaine Sciolino.[19]

This “once-forbidden land,” as the Times refers to it in its advertising copy for the trip, is now open for business thanks to the nuclear deal — whose passage the journalists on these trips have strenuously advocated. Roger Cohen (who has referred to opposition to the deal as “foolishness dressed up as machismo”) and, in addition to her capacity as an editorial board member, Carol Giacomo (who has characterized Sen. Bob Menendez’s opposition as “pre-endorsement of war”) were prominent supporters of lifting sanctions on Iran in exchange for limits on its nuclear program.

2016 Election

New York Times columnist Farhad Manjoo called for Google to suppress news stories and opinion pieces questioning the health of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. [20] Three weeks later, Clinton would collapse at a 9/11 memorial ceremony.[21]
