Oops! The New York Times Just Exposed Their Own Bias. Majorly...
The New York Times has long been struggling to conceal their giant, bulbous bias. Much like "skinny" jeans desperately try to conceal Tess Holiday's egregious thighs. Once in a while the Times will give us something fair to work with (see 'Leftists are Intolerant,' Says... the New York Times?!). But in terms of evenhandedness, they just shred any last sliver of credibility with this gem:

I know, I know. This is coming from the NYT Opinion account. Except... What's this?

Thanks for clearing that up!
Here's the thing, the Times just went all in on activism. This isn't simply a thought-provoking column meant to challenge you on the subject. And it's not even the "Opinion" staff who's responsible for doing all this. It's the Editorial Board, as in the same Editorial Board who controls the entire publication.
The bias is thicker than Tim Kaine's eyebrows. Possibly more lopsided too. There was a time where journalism and activism were two different things. But hey, it's 2017 now. The year which boasts such hits as: THUG LIFE: Donald Trump Body Slams BuzzFeed, CNN For Fake Russian 'Report' and EXPOSED: CNN Caught Staging 'Muslim Protest' on Camera
It's no wonder people are fed up with the media.
