Pulitzer award-winning New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet, speaking at the Code Conference on Tuesday, admits in the following interview that the progressive left in this country has no interest in civil discourse — that they’re intolerant of speech that they don’t already agree with.
Hilariously, Baquet accidentally slips up and refers to himself (“we”) as part of the Left, then quickly corrects the audience and reminds them that he’s a “journalist.”
“I think the Left should do some soul-searching too, right,” Baquet recommended. “We don’t want to hear anything that — we’ve long said this about the Right — but I think the Left, we don’t — I’m not ‘we,’ I’m a journalist — but the Left, as a rule, does not want to hear thoughtful disagreement.”
Wow. Two big truth bombs in one long sentence. a) He inadvertently admits he’s a lefty, and b) he admits that it’s the Left who are the closed-minded and intolerant of other people’s views.
