The establishment media has abandoned journalistic integrity, and the New York Times’s latest attack on former President Donald Trump only deepens the divide with unbiased news.
The New York Times editorial board published a scathing editorial demanding that former President Donald Trump be criminally prosecuted.
The board acknowledged that conservatives, patriots, Trump supporters and people who value freedom would take a criminal indictment of Trump as a personal attack on freedom. But, despite the risk of uproar, they said it would be worth it as Trump has “brought shame” to America and “destabilized its future” with his alleged crimes.
The hit piece, “Donald Trump Is Not Above the Law,” started with the sentence: “Mr. Trump’s unprecedented assault on the integrity of American democracy requires a criminal investigation.”

The media board proclaimed, “The disturbing details of his postelection misfeasance, meticulously assembled by the Jan. 6 committee, leaves little doubt that Mr. Trump sought to subvert the Constitution and overturn the will of the American people.”
Trump doubting the 2020 election results were the board’s main reason for wanting the former president prosecuted. Despite mounting evidence, liberals wish to have election integrity conversations be outlawed despite proclaiming Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential loss was inaccurate.
“The president, defeated at the polls in 2020, tried to enlist federal law enforcement authorities, state officials and administrators of the nation’s electoral system in a furious effort to remain in power,” the board continued. “When all else failed, he roused an armed mob that stormed the Capitol and threatened lawmakers.”
The political state of the U.S. is volatile, with fractions between Democrats and Republicans getting more extreme.
The hit piece delves into the potential ramifications and says, “such a prosecution posed grave risks of rousing ‘ugly passions’ and worsening political polarization.”
The Times admitted, “Pursuing prosecution of Mr. Trump could further entrench support for him and play into the conspiracy theories he has sought to stoke. It could inflame the bitter partisan divide, even to the point of civil unrest.”
After the FBI targeted Trump’s Florida home, his supporters’ anger with corrupt government agencies and elitist groups has grown.
Many Trump supporters feel that unfair witch hunts against the president correlate to them and that Trump is just in the way of the government going after everyday people that disagree with the establishment’s agenda.
The Times editorial piece makes it clear that the mainstream media is getting further from reporting fairly.
