Test your knowledge of current events by answering this question: Which organization remains stuck in deep cover-up mode? A) The FBIB) The Roman Catholic ChurchC) Both of the aboveD) Neither of the above If you get your news only from The New York Times, you believe the correct answer is D, neither of the above. Other people know the correct answer is C because they see the leaders of both organizations acting as if the public can’t handle the truth. It is not my intent to suggest the FBI and the Vatican are in all ways comparable. Far from it. Yet they are in similar straits because each faces a crisis of public confidence. Those crises are severe because of internal decisions to parse, obscure and withhold important facts. While a desire to protect historically valuable institutions from external harm is understandable, the goal cannot come at the expense of honesty and truth. When it does, the damage grows. One result is that the same questions are being asked of both the … [Read more...] about The New York Times fails to acknowledge the crises of public confidence

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is considering new rules on campus sexual misconduct that would change the definition of sexual harassment on college and university campuses and raise legal standards for proving that schools mishandled complaints about sexual assault and harassment, according to a report published Wednesday by the New York Times. The proposal leaked to the Times is not yet final, and would undergo a public comment period before taking on the force of law. An Education Department spokesperson said information about the contents of the proposal was “premature and speculative,” declining to comment further. But according to the report, the regulations would codify many of the temporary rules on campus sexual assault and harassment that DeVos put in place last year after rolling back Obama-era protections for survivors of campus sexual … [Read more...] about The New York Times Just Revealed Betsy DeVos’ Plan to Let Colleges off the Hook for Sexual Assault

Critics, like audiences in general, were mixed in their response to Mr. Simon’s comedy, which tended toward shticky one-liners and heart-squeezing monologues. Here is a look at his most notable works, how The New York Times reviewed them and (when available) where you can stream them. ‘Barefoot in the Park’ (1963) Elizabeth Ashley and Robert Redford starred on Broadway in this “bubbling, rib-tickling” comedy, as Howard Taubman wrote in his review, about the strains of marriage on a young couple living in New … [Read more...] about The New York Times Reviews Neil Simon
/EIN News/ -- SHERMAN OAKS, CALIFORNIA, Aug. 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Petroteq Energy Inc. (“Petroteq” or the “Company”) (TSXV:PQE; OTC:PQEFF; FSE:PQCF), a fully integrated oil and gas company, today announced that it was recently featured in The New York Times, in an article by Clifford Krauss, titled, A Plan to Unlock Billions of Barrels of Oil From Utah’s Sands.

In addition, the article discusses the Company’s approach to oil sands extraction in Utah and the current state of oil sands. “Utah has the nation’s largest deposits of raw oil sand, or bitumen — enough to produce as much as 15 billion barrels of oil and potentially more, according to the Utah Geological Survey.” – quote from the … [Read more...] about Petroteq Announces Its Feature in The New York Times
The New York Times made a horrible design decision this week, but it could be quickly corrected by pressing a few buttons on its content management system: It scrubbed the bylines for reported pieces from the home page of its website, preserving only the bylines for opinion pieces. I’m sure the champions of this disfigurement believe that replacing bylines from the home page with white space has—in the cliché-speak of art directors—modernized the site, given it room to breathe, and streamlined and cleaned up its look. They’re probably right, but the new format also denies readers essential information about its news stories that helps us decide whether or not it’s worth clicking through to the articles. Oddly, neither of the two expansive online Times articles presenting the redesign—one introducing it to readers and the other charting how the redesign evolved, mention the elimination of home page bylines.
