Hearst Media staff writer Andy Blye injected personal opinion into a news article he published on August 20, 2023, entitled, "Greenwich Republicans defend 'globalist' in online posts; Jewish group says word can be antisemitic".
The article talked about the fake crisis manufactured by Greenwich democrats over usage of the word "globalist" by the local Republican Town Committee.
The Hearst article gave a platform to Myra Clark-Siegel, the regional director of the American Jewish Committee in Westchester and Fairfield, to suggest that progressive organizations should have the power to decide what speech should be considered hate speech. Then Clark-Siegel suggested that people should stop using the word "globalist" because it was an "antisemitic dog whistle".
Blye called the Centinal "fringe" and "right wing"—adjectives that clearly reflect his personal bias—likely in an attempt to keep people from looking at an alternative perspective to that of Clark-Siegel.
It is exactly this kind of bias that has caused so many regular Americans to lose faith in the mainstream media. They are sick and tired of the not-so-hidden agenda of organizations like Hearst.
In addition to the Greenwich Time, Hearst also owns the Connecticut Post, the Middletown Press, the New Haven Register, the News-Times (Greater Danbury), the Norwalk Hour, the Register Citizen (Torrington/Northwest Corner and Litchfield County), and the Stamford Advocate.
This is not the first time that Hearst has revealed its obvious progressive bias.
The media outlet has most recently shown its desire to promote the progressive, globalist agenda by publishing an article about the "town center" model where homes, stores, and even doctor's offices are "located in one place"—a model which sounds suspiciously similar to the "15-minute city" model favored by the World Economic Forum.
Hearst has also willingly served up the official covid narrative without a challenge, acting more like a communication arm for the government and Big Pharma than an independent, unbiased media outlet.
The same can be said for Hearst's biased reporting on parental rights and library books.
At least now Connecticut has an alternative to the mainstream media.
