Where do they find these people: We're often amazed by the work we find in the New York Times.
This morning, we were amazed by the third paragraph of the paper's featured, front-page news report.
Harris and Landler wrote the news report about Obama's speech in Dallas. In paragraph three, the scribes made the highlighted statement shown below.
We'll ask a question we've asked many times. Where do they find these people?
HARRIS AND LANDLER (7/13/16): Addressing a crowd of 2,000 at a concert hall, the president chided the police for not understanding what he called the legitimate grievances of African-Americans, who he said were victims of systemic racial bias.Was the president "chiding the police" when he made those remarks? We can't find that provocative, divisive claim justified in his actual text, and it seems to fly in the face of Obama's overall comments.
“We cannot simply turn away and dismiss those in peaceful protest as troublemakers or paranoid,” Mr. Obama said to applause. “We can’t simply dismiss it as a symptom of political correctness or reverse racism. To have your experience denied like that, dismissed by those in authority, dismissed perhaps even by your white friends and co-workers and fellow church members again and again and again—it hurts.”
We're amazed, again and again, by what we see in the New York Times. We're constantly amazed and appalled.
Where in the world do they find these people? What have we done to deserve this?
