HELL FREEZES OVER: New York Times Gets Honest About Trump

By

This has really got to burn the liberal editors and owners of the New York Times.

But, what choice did they have? If you claim to be the publication of record, you’re gonna have to acknowledge the truth sooner or later.

In a new op-ed by Ross Durant titled “A War Trump Won,” the Times admits that perhaps the president has been more successful than anticipated (by liberals) when it comes to combatting jihadist terror.

The article credits Trump not only with defeating ISIS in Syria and elsewhere, but also takes the liberal mainstream media to task for (purposefully) failing to report on this.

Again, we are talking about the New York Times!

Durant writes:

“But this is also a press failure, a case where the media is not adequately reporting an important success because it does not fit into the narrative of Trumpian disaster in which our journalistic entities are all invested.”

Not to misrepresent what’s happening here, Durant and the Times still don’t like Trump. He clearly hints at as much throughout the article.

Still, Durant is compelled to end his piece with the following line:

“But if you had told me in late 2016 that almost a year into the Trump era the caliphate would be all-but-beaten without something far worse happening in the Middle East, I would have been surprised and gratified. So very provisionally, credit belongs where it’s due — to our soldiers and diplomats, yes, but to our president as well.”
