Opinion - Practice what you Preach
As long time New York Times readers, we are profoundly disappointed by the allegations against the New York Times. The times is owed a fair treatment by the legal system. We will follow the case closely. We found the Times fact based point of view unique in our entertainment driven world.
However, We feel like we have been stabbed in the back by an old friend. We cannot read another story about immigration, the brutal Amazon workplace or the decline of government jobs for the Black middle class, without seeing the organization as a bunch of hypocrites. We cannot take seriously any editorial on any progressive issue related to race, sex or age without thinking it was completely insincere and written to pander to their desired demographic.
The Times has lost a large amount of moral authority on issues of age, race and gender by allowing this blatant discrimination to occur in the workplace. A newspaper is q unique place where public morality must correspond to private activities. There is no dividing line between editorial opinion and operational practice. Media outlets must "Practice what they Preach"
Growing up we were all taught: "Never to anything stupid enough to end up on the front page of the New York Times!" I guess that means the UK Guardian now.
