A former New York Times reporter says the liberal newspaper waited until after the presidential election to publish her revelation that debunked the story that the August 2020 Black Lives Matter riots in Kenosha , Wisconsin, does not harm the local community.
Three-day riot broke out in August 2020 after Kenosha police officers shot Jacob Blake, an armed black man is resisting arrest after a disturbing home call made by his girlfriend.
Independent journalist Nellie Bowles said in a post Thursday on Bari Weiss’ Substack channel, General awareness, that The Times kept her story until after the election.
The move is yet another sign that despite journalistic objectivity, the grassroots media – notably The New York Times, CNN, The Washington Post and MSNBC – are merely propagandists. leftist transmission.
Bowles said she was sent to Kenosha last summer to report on the “mainstream liberal argument” that allowing the BLM to destroy small businesses is an appropriate way to promote “racial equity” because businesses can compensate costs through insurance. She knows that this is wrong.
“Until recently, the mainstream liberal argument had been that it was good and healthy to burn businesses for racial justice. Burning allows justifiable rage, and businesses all have insurance to rebuild,” she wrote.
“When I was at the New York Times, I went to Kenosha to see about this, and it turned out not to be true. The part of Kenosha that people burned during the riot was the poor, multi-racial commercial district, rife with small, uninsured cell phone shops and lots of cars.”

While the company’s media dismissed the vandalism and arson as minor property damage, Bowles was horrified to discover the devastating impact of Riot BLM available in the local community.
She wrote: “Very sad to see and hear from those who have suffered. “Apart from the financial loss, small storefronts are quite meaningful to owners and their communities, which is a constant hindrance to the Zoom elite.”
After submitting her work, Bowles was surprised that the Times had delayed the publication of her introduction for more than two months.
“Something strange happened to that story after I submitted it. It doesn’t run. It sits and sits,” she wrote.
“A few weeks after I applied, an editor told me: The Times will not be able to run my Kenosha coverage piece until after the 2020 election, very sorry.”
Her article highlights the devastation of the riot that finally ran – six days after Joe Biden was declared the winner election.
“Finally, the election passed. Biden was in the White House. And my Kenosha story ran,” Bowles wrote. “Regardless of the reason for keeping the pie, covering up post-riot suffering is not a priority.

“The fact that put Kyle Rittenhouse on the street is one of the things we reporters intended to ignore.”
She continued: “If you live in burned neighborhoods, you shouldn’t get a fire extinguisher. The appropriate response – the only acceptable response – is to see bricks and mortar torn apart, watch the flames burn, and say: thank you. “
Bowles’ chilling revelation provides further evidence that the establishment’s media are not simply left-wing political members masquerading as “journalists.”
The Times essentially buried this story to promote then-candidate Biden. In doing so, it paved the way for the mass media to defame Kyle Rittenhouse, a teenager who was relentlessly branded as a “white supremacist vigilante” for defending himself during the Kenosha riots.
The Times’ actions helped establish the leftist narrative that Rittenhouse had “no reason” to be there because the riots weren’t as bad and violent as he claimed.
This is not the first time the newspaper has been criticized for political bias.
In 2019, Jill Abramson, a former executive editor of the Times, said the store had become “unmistakably anti-Trump” in an effort to boost profits.
Abramson made the remarks in her book, “Merchants of Truth,” where she said the Times had thrown away the then-President. Donald Trump nonstop because he is a cash cow.
“In spite of [executive editor Dean] Baquet says publicly that he doesn’t want the Times to be the opposition party, his news pages being explicitly anti-Trump,” Abramson writes in her book, quoted by Fox News. “Some headlines contain raw opinions, as well as some stories labeled as news analysis.”
Abramson – who served as the newspaper’s executive editor from 2011 to 2014 – said it was in the Times’ financial interest to consistently cover negative stories about Trump because they made money.
She pointed out that the Times got a “big push” from Trump in his first six months in office, as its digital subscriptions grew to more than 2 million – an increase of 600,000 subscribers.
“With a largely liberal audience, there is an implicit financial reward for the Times for running so many stories about Trump, almost all of which are negative: they have driven massive traffic and, in spite of it, cancellation after the election, increasing subscription orders to levels no one anticipated,” she wrote.
Abramson’s comments reflect the legendary journalist’s observations Ted Koppel — a libertarian who criticized CNN and MSNBC for their relentlessly negative coverage of Trump, saying their ratings would have gone up without Trump.

Koppel – a former ABC News host and 25 Emmy Award winner – said liberal agencies need Trump because he is their holy grail for monster ratings.
“You can’t do without Donald Trump,” Koppel told CNN host Brian Stelter in 2018. “You’d be lost without Donald Trump! CNN’s ratings would be in the toilet without Donald Trump.”
