Recently, Project Veritas released a series of undercover videos that reveal how New York Times journalists are more interested in smearing the Trump administration than in reporting objective news. But you don’t need to go undercover to see examples of such unfair and biased New York Times reporting. A recent example is Eric Lipton’s article related to Nancy Beck, whom Trump selected to head up the chemical office at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
According to Lipton’s article, Beck’s appointment is a threat to public health and safety because she worked for the chemical industry’s trade association, the American Chemistry Council. The headline subtitle says it all:...

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt took the right stand in favor of sound science last March when he denied an activist petition to ban the pesticide chlorpyrifos. At the time, he explained:

Tomorrow, between 8:30 and 9:30 PM, environmental activists will show their commitment to Mother Nature by sitting in the dark for so-called “Earth Hour.” But paying homage to the Earth for an hour a year, isn’t going to change anything. It only showcases the fact that green activists choose to ignore what really makes the world a safer and better place to live: human ingenuity.
That is why, as the greens bump around in the dark, CEI urges individuals to turn on the lights and celebrate Human Achievement Hour. We turn on the lights and acknowledge that human creativity, fostered by free markets and free minds, is the source of improving people’s quality of life.
And these achievements are not exclusive to those who live in wealthy nations. Expanding economic activity and technological development is...
