1 November 2019 — FAIR

by Dorothee Benz

NYT portrait of heartland NaziThe New York Times‘ portrait (11/25/17) of what it called “the Nazi sympathizer next door.”

In the beginning was the profile of the Nazi next door, an inexplicable decision by the New York Times (11/25/17) to profile a right-wing extremist in the most sympathetic light possible.
