The New York Times is an outlet which expressly manufactures consent for the state.
I have said it so many times now, but I will never stop saying it because I do not know of a single outlet—including CNN that is so adept at filling the role.
We often denigrate CNN, but if we are going to be honest here people know that CNN is trash. The network does not have nearly the amount of power and prestige that The New York Times has.
The New York Times responded with this:
“Senator Marco Rubio is simply wrong on the facts.” https://t.co/HJ7FfOIgCI

According to this report from Fox News:
“Like any other corporate media entity they probably fear being kicked out of China, they probably fear losing access to China, losing reporting capabilities,” he told Fox News. “That comes into play for media outlets who decide not to pursue certain stories.”
Slackman said in his December response that The Times has already been “blocked on all platforms in mainland China” and that the “majority” of its correspondents were expelled from the country in 2020.

The Federalist quotes Rubio:
“For a newspaper that spent four years suggesting the duly elected leader of the free world was a Russian agent hell-bent on destroying America, the protection of a brutal dictator ordering genocide is simply astounding …
No words of apology will erase your paper’s complicity in the ongoing genocide, but at the very least, you should end the censorship of your reporters and allow the full details to come out impartially, without fear or favor,” he added.
