Real Clear Politics Tears Apart New York Times Lies Over 2020 Election Coverage

Real Clear Politics On Times Lies

Supporters of Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador protest in front of the New York Times headquarters in New York on Sunday, February 25, 2024. Mexico's president defended his decision to disclose a reporter's telephone number, saying a law that prohibits officials from releasing personal information doesn't apply to him. Press freedom groups said the president's decision to make public the phone number of a New York Times reporter last week was an attempt to punish critical reporting and exposed the reporter to potential danger.

Ten days after the 2020 election, Tom Bevan, co-founder and president of RealClearPolitics, received an email from a New York Times reporter who covers the media. The reporter, Jeremy W. Peters, advised Bevan that his newspaper was working on a story about RCP and asked for responses to various questions and accusations. Four days later, Peters’ critique was published under the headline “A Popular Political Site Made a Sharp Right Turn. What Steered It.”
