I was a bluebird, flying about, singing my melodies, content in the knowledge that I was safe and warm, that my freedoms would be upheld, that the protectors of such freedoms would NEVER let them fall. I was that way until protector, one that I thought I could count on — turned away.

This protector turned away dismissively, turning its back on ALL the birds who sang longingly, begging it to return. But the New York Times would no longer be, for so many birds, the paper of democracy. “It’s not your imagination: New York Times Reporting is One-Sided.” I point you to this excellent article. It tells us the raw truth about the NY Times. “From the time the CNN’s event ended on June 27 and 8:AM Chicago time, journalist Jennifer Schulze counted a staggering 192 stories about Joe Biden’s debate performance by the New York Times.”

Researchers at Penn University are also researching the media bias issue, which they say is a huge one. This also relates to the New York Times. “During the week that the Special Counsel’s report came out, we examined the top 20 articles on the Times’ landing page every four hours. In that time, they published 26 unique articles about Biden’s age, of which 1 of them explored the possibility that Trump’s age was of equal or more concern.”

The New York Times is now a pathetic shell of what they once were. How did it become this way? There are rumors. But the bottom line is that it happens. People and organizations change. Friends become foes. It happens, I suspect, more often than we know.

I was a Bluebird singing my song in innocence not knowing just exactly WHO was bad and who was good, trusting that the ones we looked to for so long would keep us safe. Now? Now I am wise to them. You should be, as well. But the New York Times will be chastened.

This will happen when President Biden wins the election. How will they feel then? Will they try to minimize the damage? Will they reach out once again to us, calling our names in the wind, coaxing us, trying to get back in our good graces, indignantly saying OF COURSE they knew how dangerous project 2025 was, of OF COURSE,OF COURSE OF COURSE.

They may try, but they will be on the losing end as they gaze out at all the birds who have flown far away from them, subscriptions flying with them. They will have to learn humility. They will have to know about “The Bird in the hand.”

“A Bird in the Hand.” Perhaps you’ve heard that expression. That expression means: “It’s better to hold onto something one has already than to risk losing it by trying to attains something better.” There is no better than President Biden. We hold onto him with ferocity. We fly high. The New York Times can’t fly. Indeed, they haven’t even learned how to get off the ground.
