New York is named after this Duke of York:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_II_of_England

A white  man of fabulous wealth and of privilege and king of a nasty colonial power.

He also lived just after the first slaves were brought to the what is now the United States so they could make it the great nation it is today.
He did not free any slaves I don't think.

What can we change NY to ? USSB : The "United Soviet Socialist Boroughs"?

explaining Drudge was more conservative to some degree is correct
but not explaining how it has suddenly morphed into an anti Trump page with almost 100% negative stories of Trump
and having half the wikipedia presentation on Drudge all about it promoting "conspiracy" theories
proves to me wikipedia is written by left wingers :

WSJ Editorial Page vs. Cancel Culture rot within the WSJ
« Reply #2815 on: July 24, 2020, 06:02:22 PM »
A Note to Readers
These pages won’t wilt under cancel-culture pressure.
By The Editorial Board
July 23, 2020 7:44 pm ET

TEXT

PHOTO: CHANG/EPA-EFE/REX/SHUTTERSTOCK
We’ve been gratified this week by the outpouring of support from readers after some 280 of our Wall Street Journal colleagues signed (and someone leaked) a letter to our publisher criticizing the opinion pages. But the support has often been mixed with concern that perhaps the letter will cause us to change our principles and content. On that point, reassurance is in order.

In the spirit of collegiality, we won’t respond in kind to the letter signers. Their anxieties aren’t our responsibility in any case. The signers report to the News editors or other parts of the business, and the News and Opinion departments operate with separate staffs and editors. Both report to Publisher Almar Latour. This separation allows us to pursue stories and inform readers with independent judgment.

It was probably inevitable that the wave of progressive cancel culture would arrive at the Journal, as it has at nearly every other cultural, business, academic and journalistic institution. But we are not the New York Times. Most Journal reporters attempt to cover the news fairly and down the middle, and our opinion pages offer an alternative to the uniform progressive views that dominate nearly all of today’s media.

As long as our proprietors allow us the privilege to do so, the opinion pages will continue to publish contributors who speak their minds within the tradition of vigorous, reasoned discourse. And these columns will continue to promote the principles of free people and free markets, which are more important than ever in what is a culture of growing progressive conformity and intolerance.

the headline would be totally different
it would be something more like Biden is trying to control drug costs and big pharm is not cooperating
instead

does not Woodward come out with a book just prior to every election?

just in time for liberal media circuit to parade his "findings" with them giving them more headlines and him lots of book promotion

wonder if there will be any positive things about Trump at all in book
we know what it will say otherwise and will be nothing new
with Democrat voting "inside " mostly anonymous sources telling us how crazy Trump is:

"wonder if there will be any positive things about Trump at all in book"

Good point.  Not much of a historian or a reporter if he can't mix in the positives.

On the msm book tour, "next up, partisan hack Bob Woodward will disparage the President and his supporters."

Strange that NYT and and the social media gatekeepers feel so threatened by this.
The article:

How a Conservative News Site Thrived on Facebook and Google
The Western Journal has had one of the biggest online audiences. But it now finds itself clashing with Silicon Valley tech giants. Here are highlights from a Times investigation.

It may not be a household name, but few publications have had the reach, and potentially the influence, in American politics as The Western Journal.

Even the right-wing publication’s audience of more than 36 million people, eclipsing many of the nation’s largest news organizations, doesn’t know much about the company, or who’s behind it.

In a New York Times investigation, Nicholas Confessore and Justin Bank found that the site, which stokes outrage and curates a narrative in which conservatives and their values are under constant assault, is caught in a high-stakes clash between Silicon Valley and Washington. The site has struggled to maintain its audience through Facebook’s and Google’s algorithmic changes aimed at reducing disinformation — actions the site’s leaders see as evidence of political bias.

You can read the full investigation here. But if you have time only for the highlights, here’s what the reporters learned.
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/21/us/facebook-disinformation-floyd-brown.html

The Western Journal’s audience is huge, but precarious.
The publication does almost no original reporting, instead repackaging stories found elsewhere that fit into right-wing narratives chosen by the site’s editors. After an editor finds a worthy story, it is handed off to a pool of contract writers, most working remotely. Deadlines are tight: Most articles are filed within an hour or two, and some breaking-news stories are written in as little as 30 minutes.

It was a model that worked strikingly well — for a while. In the three years ending in March, Western Journal posts on Facebook earned three-quarters of a billion shares, likes and comments, nearly as many as the combined tally of 10 leading American news organizations.

But each of the tech giants began limiting its reach. Google News blacklisted it for what it considered deceptive business practices, Apple News followed after saying it produced stories that promoted “views overwhelmingly rejected by the scientific community,” and Facebook downgraded The Western Journal after it was repeatedly dinged on fact-checking sites.

Its founder has a history of divisive politics.
Floyd G. Brown, who founded the site, is a political activist who has chosen writing as his weapon. He began his career with the race-baiting “Willie Horton” ad during the 1988 presidential campaign, which used mug shots of a black convicted murderer to stoke fears that the Democratic candidate, Michael Dukakis, was soft on crime.

In the 1990s, he peddled opposition research and conspiracy theories about Bill Clinton. In the 2000s, he helped form a network of political action committees that made ads attacking Barack Obama, including one that questioned whether Mr. Obama was a secret Muslim.

The company also has unusually close ties with a pro-Trump PAC, America Fighting Back. Mr. Brown is the PAC’s chairman.

Mr. Brown’s son Patrick served as chief executive of the site until he stepped down in August to take a medical leave. Early in his publishing career, Patrick Brown initially focused on uplifting and nonpolitical stories, but eventually adopted its right-wing focus.

The site has amplified claims of political bias in Big Tech.
Its leaders didn’t buy explanations from the technology companies on why the publication had been downgraded or suspended, echoing the common complaint in conservative media that Big Tech was biased against them.

To cope with the changes, it began, in the words of Patrick Brown, “backing into something that looks more like a traditional media company.” It launched a corrections page, removed thousands of old stories, published editorial standards and renamed its army of related Facebook pages to tie them to a single brand.

It has now rebounded, but is about half of its prior size. Later this year, the Browns will release a smartphone app intended to sidestep the gatekeeping of Big Tech.

If expectations hadn't fallen through the floor, this speech would be called slurred speech.

"And there has never been anything we've been able to accomplish when we've done it together."

Small gaffe, just mis-reading, slurring a speech.
https://justthenews.com/video/joe-biden-gaffe-during-nomination-acceptance-speech

Remember, a real gaffe for a liberal is when they accidentally reveal the truth.  That doesn't happen when reading a very carefully written and heavily rehearsed speech.

Now back to the basement.

Suddenly Trump polls evenly with Biden in blue state MN. The riot-loot-topple-monuments party of Ellison-Omar is not their father's Humphrey-Mondale Democrat-Farmer-Labor party.  Favoring big government via elections suddenly moved to anarchy through street violence and burning down the city.  Now people think about law and order.  One group feeling that: blacks.  Another group unexcited about the rising crime rate, loss of security: rich white liberals.  They don't want to be Republicans but they aren't with the radicals.
