The New York Times sets the agenda for the Democrat Party by deciding which stories to cover and how they frame the news.
But now The New York Times is in turmoil.
And The New York Times is facing this rebellion over bias that could change the paper forever.
On Wednesday, The New York Times published an op-ed by Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton urging President Trump to utilize the 1807 Insurrection Act to deploy the U.S. military to put down the campaign of coordinated terrorist attacks across America.
Cotton is a decorated Iraq War veteran, a Harvard Law School Graduate, and a United States Senator.
His opinion on the matter is well informed and Cotton is a policy maker with significant influence on the Trump administration.
But younger New York Times staffers and other members of the media waged a fierce campaign to bully The Times into never running opinion pieces they don’t agree with.

Three Times journalists, who declined to be identified by name, said they had informed their editors that sources told them they would no longer provide them with information because of the Op-Ed. –> sign of unusual internal dissensionhttps://t.co/iTUsIe3hOv

Times Opinion Page Editor James Bennett defended the decision to publish Cotton’s piece.
“Times Opinion owes it to our readers to show them counter-arguments, particularly those made by people in a position to set policy. We understand that many readers find Senator Cotton’s argument painful, even dangerous. We believe that is one reason it requires public scrutiny and debate,” Bennett wrote.
The new model for the media is that ideas liberals disagree with do not deserve to be heard and debated.
Instead, they should be suppressed and banished from the public square.
