"According to the Taranto Principle, the press's failure to hold left-wingers accountable for bad behavior merely encourages the left's bad behavior to the point that its candidates are repellent to ordinary Americans."
R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.
(1943-) American magazine editor, book author, columnist
'The Taranto Principle', The New York Sun, September 25, 2008

Reader comments about this quote:
The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land has a greater representation by what is currently called the left. Though the de jure States united does NOT fit on the legal scale of left to right, the patrons of said theocracy genuflect in fealty to the dogmas that are antithetical to individual sovereignty, inalienable rights, liberty, prosperity for the many and "the laws of nature and of nature's God" (Declaration of Independence). The quote illuminates the reality of the Biden / Clinton / etc. crime families. The left's elimination of the free press also demonstrates the accuracy of the quote.

    Unlike the Peter Principle in which one rises to the level of one's incompetence, there is apparently no ceiling to the Taranto Principle!  Forget about even a façade of professionalism  the masks are off.  Not an unbiased reporter among any of them  they're "journalists."  I don't want 'journalism,' I want accurate reporting  reporters.  Stop diluting every fact with opinion.  Gossip isn't news, it's libel.  Fact-checkers are propagandists.
