As flagship of the American news media, the New York Times is the world's most powerful news outlet. With thousands of reporters covering events from all corners of the globe, the Times has the power to influence wars, foment revolution, shape economies and change the very nature of our culture. It doesn't just cover the news: it creates it. The Gray Lady Winked pulls back the curtain on this illustrious institution to reveal a quintessentially human organization where ideology, ego, power and politics compete with the more humble need to present the facts. In its 10 gripping chapters, The Gray Lady Winked offers readers an eye-opening, often shocking, look at the New York Times's greatest journalistic failures, so devastating they changed the course of history. In this episode, we speak to the author of this book on the way that the New York Times manufactures narratives and pushes propoganda to maintain it's power. We also tackle topics of the NYT's coverage of India and its alignment towards China.
