New York Magazine has performed what Rush might call a 'random act of journalism' by taking a deep dive on the transformation of the NY Times into both a paper whose growth was fueled by resistance to Trump, and fundamentally transformed internally by young "insurrectionist" staffers from outside the traditional journalism pipeline.

NY Times columnist Bret Stephens, regularly reviled by liberal NY Times readers much as was the resigned Bari Weiss, has written a masterpiece takedown of the NY Times' 1619 Project.

The 1619 Project is the Times' attempt to manipulate and recast history to mark the start of the United States as 1619, when the first chattel slave ship arrived. In the Times' rendering, everything of importance emanates from that event and from slavery.

Nikole Hannah-Jones has admitted that her '1619 Project' was more about controlling the narrative than presenting an accurate portrayal of history. She and the New York Times have also already scrubbed central aspects of the project, angering progressives. Now, a group of scholars is calling on the Pulitzer board to revoke a prize awarded to Jones last spring.

Bari Weiss is a liberal columnist who just resigned from the NY Times. Her resignation letter has gone viral. Weiss never was a good fit at the NY Times, just as Bret Stephens isn't, because she is pro-Israel and speaks out against anti-Semitism at a paper that relentlessly pushes the false narrative of Palestinians as victims and Jews as oppressors in Israel and elsewhere. Those pro-Israel pro-Jewish stances were at the core of the hostility to her (in my opinion), or as she puts it in her resignation letter:

In 1995, Nikole Hannah-Jones, the founder of the New York Times's revisionist American history "1619 Project", wrote to the editor of Notre Dame’s student newspaper, The Observer. She alleged that white people "pump drugs and guns into the black community, pack black people into the squalor of segregated urban ghettos and continue to be bloodsuckers in our community."
