The New York Times vs. David Barton -- Does anyone recall David Barton of Wallbuilders and his efforts on American history? Remember how both progressives and conservatives savaged him? No? Do a web search for "David Barton Wallbuilders historian" and see what you find.
Now, years later, and we have the New York Times doing the 1619 Project. Objections? Some. But the 1619 Project is already full-steam ahead being taught in schools.
So ask yourself why the responses to Barton vs. the New York Times have been so different.
