New York Times Hires Self-Described “Hack” Glenn Thrush

Despite all the recent hysteria about fake news, it looks like a top purveyor will be doubling down on it. The New York Times has hired Glenn Thrush to cover the White House.

WikiLeaks revealed that while at Politico, Thrush sent stories to Clinton staffers for approval before publication.

“We’re thrilled that Glenn Thrush is joining The Times,” Elisabeth Bumiller, The New York Times’ Washington bureau chief, told The Huffington Post. “He’s a premier political journalist, a master of breaking news and long-form story telling and a stellar addition to our White House team.”

Story telling. That sounds right.

In leaked emails, Thrush describes himself as a hack.

“No worries Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to u,” Thrush wrote to [top Hillary henchman John] Podesta in an April 2015 email. “Please don’t share or tell anyone I did this Tell me if I f***ed up anything.”

Podesta replied that he had “no problems” with Thrush’s coverage. The approved material appeared in story entitled “Hillary’s Big-Money Dilemma.”

Shrillary’s Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri was also furtively given a chance to look over Thrush’s writings for anything that might be deemed unhelpful. The published story included the line, “Palmieri (who laughed off a request to participate in this story) enjoys a good relationship with reporters.” I’ll say.

There will be no need for Thrush to get approval from these folks going forward. No doubt everything he has to report will suit them fine, despite the recent promise by Public Editor Liz Spayd that the Slimes would try not to be such “an echo chamber of liberal intellectualism” but rather “an honest reflection of reality.”

Thrush will help bring you all the news liberals see fit to print.
