New York Times hires conservative columnist; INSTANTLY regrets it

New York Times readers are running for their safe spaces.


Because the bastion of liberalism decided to hire a single conservative opinion columnist, Bret Stephens, formally of the Wall Street Journal.

His first column, “Climate of Complete Certainty,” began by discussing the “complete certainty” that Hillary Clinton would win the election – which is obviously false – and then proceeded to link that to a point regarding the consensus on climate change.

Now, did Stephens deny climate change? Anyone who read the column knows he didn’t. Rather, his column states “Claiming total certainty about the science traduces the spirit of science and creates openings for doubt whenever a climate claim proves wrong,” and later, “None of this is to deny climate change or the possible severity of its consequences. But ordinary citizens also have a right to be skeptical of an overweening scientism.”

Of course, accepting climate change while questioning whether or not all the hysteria surrounding it is 100 percent accurate was too much for the Times’ audience, who are reportedly canceling their subscriptions in droves.

Of course, not everyone was insane..

We’ve certainly published an article or two on that many in our audience found disagreeable. And how did they react? By telling us what they thought we got wrong.

It’s a shame the Times’ audience isn’t competent enough to do the same – but personally, I hope they don’t stop canceling anytime soon.
