MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews flummoxed New York Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor when he asked her if she knew anyone at the Times who was pro-life:
Matthews: Do you know anybody, Yamiche, at The New York Times who is pro-life?
Alcindor: “That’s not a question I’m going to answer. I have no idea.”
Matthews: Do you know anybody, you don’t have to name names. Do you know anybody at the New York Times who is pro-life?
Alcindor: “I have not asked my coworkers that question, I should say”
Matthews: “That’s cute. That’s the way you make your point.”
It’s a safe bet to say that a large majority of those working at the Times are pro-choice, given the paper’s liberal viewpoint, and if there are any pro-life supporters, they are probably remaining silent to avoid any retribution from their co-workers or management.
