This is this morning’s NY Times paper. Right there, at the top of fold is this title:

“A FERVENT TRUMP BACKER IS SEIZED IN PIPE BOMB SPREE”

But hey, remember when Steve Scalise was shot by a “fervent” Bernie Sanders supporter? Did we see the headline

“A FERVENT BACKER OF BERNIE SANDERS SHOOTS GOP REP. STEVE SCALISE, GRAVELY WOUNDING HIM”?

Nope.

This was the headline instead

Check out this sentence from the above article:

Mr. Hodgkinson seemed to be a fervent opponent of Mr. Trump.

Then about 22 paragraphs in

Mr. Hodgkinson also appeared to have been a fervent fan of Senator Bernie Sanders,

Fervent seems to be a favorite adjective in the NY Times guide book.

The bias is painful and overt. I remember when we not allowed to blame Sanders for the Scalise shooting, but here the Times manages to tar Trump with the bomber’s efforts. And that bomber appears to be a complete lunatic.

But take heart, this is how you get more Trump.
