New York Times Plays Peek-A-Boo: Blind to Machete-Wielding Professor But Searching for “Kink” in Kids’ Movie 

Caroline Wharton - 06 Jun 2023

The New York Times can play games in their journalistic efforts, and it recently appears that the media outlet has been engaging in a rousing rendition of ‘Peek-A-Boo’ as some stories are ignored and others are searched out when perhaps they shouldn’t be. One of the biggest stories on abortion and higher education was blindly overlooked by the NYTimes recently while an alarming review on a children’s movie was circulated — needless to say, we don’t like how they are playing this game. Here’s what you need to know:  

Missing: A Story on the Previously Featured Machete-Wielding Professor  

Despite the Hunter College story of the now ex-professor abusing pro-life students and putting a machete to a New York Post reporter’s neck making the rounds in the media — click HERE to read another SFLA blog entitled “In Case You Missed It: The Ultimate Hunter College Media Coverage Roundup”the New York Times didn’t bite. 

There are commonsense questions we have on why they chose not to report on these incidents. With such an aggressive act against a fellow reporter, why didn’t they feel the need to say something? Especially since this was a fellow New York outlet? Why was a machete chase not considered “big enough” to relay to readers? Beyond these, however, we have the biggest one:  

Why didn’t the New York Times feel compelled to report on this story after they had just recently featured Professor Shellyne Rodriguez? reported this inconsistency in a piece entitled “Apparently NYT Doesn’t Think Shellyne Rodriguez’s Machete Move was Nearly as Newsworthy as Her Art Show.” Independent journalist associated with Twitchy Jeryl Bier discovered that just last month, the New York Times had covered Rodriguez’s “terrific debut exhibition” of “forthrightly political art.” He speculated in a tweet, “Is it possible that Shellyne Rodriguez’s “forthrightly political art,” as the @NYTimes put it last month, is the reason her behavior is being largely ignored by journalists, even though she held a machete to the neck of a fellow journalist?” 

It certainly looks like it.  

Creepy Inclusion: NYTimes Wants “Kink” in New Disney Movie  

In all the time the newspaper had spent not writing the Hunter College machete story, the New York Times found the editorial space to put out a review Disney’s new live-action ‘The Little Mermaid’ — and their critique was pretty crummy and definitely scummy.  

In a published review, movie critic Wesley Morris wrote, “The new, live-action ‘The Little Mermaid’ is everything nobody should want in a movie: dutiful and defensive, yet desperate for approval. It reeks of obligation and noble intentions. Joy, fun, mystery, risk, flavor, kink — they’re missing.”  

Indeed, how dare a children’s movie try to promote “noble intentions” and leave out sexualization, right?  

Conservative Director Robby Starbuck said, “The New York Times just put up a review of the Little Mermaid where the reviewer complains that KINK was missing from the film. The definition of kink: a person’s unusual sexual preferences. Same media denies the left sexualizes kids. The reviewer needs his hard drives reviewed.”  

It’s sad to see The New York Times ignore important news while publishing trashy, perverted content, but it’s a reality we should recognize. Don’t let pro-abortion, anti-family mainstream media outlets play ‘Peek-A-Boo’ with you by withholding content and pushing narratives — keep up with the Students for Life of America blog for the best pro-life news.
