The New York Times is in serious trouble.
With the paper having already lost all credibility in the eyes of at least half of America, they just got hit with yet more devastating news.
And it’s all thanks to one strike that left the paper crippled for the first time in decades.
The New York Times is on a collision course with reality.
After writing off half of the country and openly declaring that they wish for their paper to cater only to far-Left elitists living in liberal enclaves like San Francisco and Boston, the New York Times has turned itself into a shadow of its former self.
Once one of the most respected newspapers in the entire world, the New York Times now has become little more than a propaganda piece for the Democratic Party, having lost all credibility that it had spent the better part of a century working to build.
And now, with the paper having explicitly written off half of the country as its enemies, the New York Times is struggling to retain the attention even of its own liberal cohorts.
Even worse, the New York Times is now facing the real possibility of a widespread editor strike that could end up toppling the paper for good.
Fox News reports, “Reporters and editors of The New York Times spoke out during a 24-hour walkout as negotiations with management failed to produce results prior to Thursday’s strike, which saw hundreds of employees rally in the streets of the Big Apple.”
“We’re fighting for a fair contract, we’ve been at the bargaining table for 20 months, and we don’t have a contract yet,” said Times journalist Larry Buchanan when asked for a comment by Fox News. “We’re out here striking because we want a fair contract. We haven’t had a wage raise in two years.”
The strike at the New York Times marks the first time since the 1970s that editors revolted against the paper.
And the results have helped to capture the decline of the New York Times in a way that even its Left-wing audience can now recognize.
“The New York Times Guild, a union part of the NewsGuild of New York, said in a Wednesday statement that the paper’s proposal failed to meet “the economic moment,” and was “far behind” inflation and average wage gains across the U.S. At least 1,100 employees have signed the pledge to strike for the 24-hour period. The strike is notable because of how rarely Times employees have rallied to receive greater compensation and benefits,” adds Fox News.
The problem the New York Times faces however is that it may simply not have the money to pay its editors and writers the amount that they are currently demanding.
With a falling audience and more and more Americans turning away from the paper due to its explicit political biases and support for radical Left-wing groups like the 1619 project, who’s founder spoke at an event hosted by the striking employees, many in the general public simply do not care if the New York Times folds as a result of this strike or other pressures currently facing the newspaper.
The hole the New York Times currently finds itself in is one that the paper itself dug, and it did so because it made the calculated decision to try and cater to only a small slice of the American public.
