The New York Times has a serious problem on its hands.
They thought no one would find out the truth about them.
But now, they are scrambling after one phone call was leaked.
Last week, a gun-rights activist with the National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) received a call from a New York Times reporter.
The reporter was named Erin Marquis, and she was the lead editor for Wirecutter, which is a publication of the New York Times that does tech reviews.
The call came on the heels of a press release that a local affiliate of NAGR had put out in the wake of the Oxford shooting, pushing back against calls for more gun control after the shooting.
Generally, if a reporter calls you, they are doing so in order to ask journalistic questions so that they can write an article.
But that is not what Erin Marquis did. She had something completely different in mind.
On the voicemail, Marquis had this to say: “Hi, I’m a journalist with the New York Times. I’m just calling to wonder, I have two questions: How do you sleep at night? And aren’t you just, like, a little bit worried that there might be a hell? And when you meet God, he will send you there? That’s just my only question. Third question, the only people politicizing this seem to be you because you’re the only people I got a (expletive) press release from. Again, I am from the New York Times. And I’m letting everyone in the New York Times know what kind of (expletive) (expletive) you are. Congrats on being a laughing stock.”
Marquis then followed that up with another voicemail that stated: “You (expletive) ghouls. I hope that there is a God in heaven, so he judges you when you die.”
Clearly Marquis is not an objective journalist. Like so many “journalists” in the corporate media, she sees herself more as an activist for Left-wing causes.
She also seems to be unhinged for someone who allegedly was hired to report the news.
Once these voicemails became public, the New York Times scrambled to salvage their reputation. They knew this would expose them for the Left-wing publication they truly are.
CNBC reported, “The New York Times said Friday that it is reviewing a top editor at the newspaper’s Wirecutter.com for tweeting scathing messages about a gun-rights group, and for allegedly leaving angry, profane voicemails for the group.”
And later, Jeremy Barr of the Washington Post confirmed that Marquis has been suspended by the New York Times.
The New York Times is trying to cover their tracks on this, but it is too little, too late for them.
After all, Marquis has only been suspended. This means she will likely be back on the job sooner rather than later.
And her voicemails provide a window into the mindset of so many reporters at the New York Times.
They hate anyone who disagrees with them politically, and they see their job as “journalists” as being to smear their political enemies.
The corporate media has become hopelessly corrupt, and it’s time for people to start embracing independent media outlets like the ones found on Substack.
