There Has Never Been a Better Reason To Read the New York Times. Here Are 101 Links You Should Click on Right Now.

December 8, 2022

More than 1,100 unionized employees at the New York Times are currently engaged in a 24-hour work stoppage to protest the company's "failure to bargain in good faith" and "reach a fair contract agreement with the workers." The strike, which began on Thursday at midnight, is the first large-scale labor action at the Times since 1965.

"It's disappointing that they're taking such drastic action," Times CEO Meredith Levien wrote in a memo to staff on Wednesday. "In the meantime, know that we have plans in place to ensure that we meet our obligation to our readers and the general public by reporting the news as fully as possible through any disruption caused by the strike."

Hear, hear! We at the Washington Free Beacon don't always agree with the Times, but feel it is our moral duty to offer support for a fellow journalistic institution in need. We are similarly disappointed that a bunch of coddled narcissists would deliberately sabotage their noble employer because they think they deserve higher wages and don't want to show up to the office. The union has even insisted on conducting negotiations via Zoom with hundreds of employees watching.

"We're asking readers to stand with us on the digital picket line and not visit any NYT platforms tomorrow. Read local news. Make something from a cookbook. Break your Wordle streak," multiple Times employees wrote on social media. The striking journalists are planning a protest at 1 p.m. outside the paper's headquarters near Times Square.

Nikole Hannah-Jones, author of the controversial 1619 Project, is scheduled to speak, which would appear to confirm that she is still employed by the Times despite not publishing a story under her byline since June 2020. In lieu of working, the esteemed journalist has been accepting $40,000 speaking fees to tell insecure white liberals that America is "one of the most unequal societies in the history of the world." (Fact check: It is not.)

The Free Beacon commends the courage of White House reporters Peter Baker and Michael Shear, who angered their nagging colleagues at the Times by declining to participate in the walkout.
