Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow recently sat down with Ezra Levant of “The Ezra Levant Show” to talk about his latest book “Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption.”
In his book, Marlow detailed the financial connection between the New York Times shareholders and the coverage that they push. He even points to a timeline when Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim Helu, who was the richest person alive from 2010 to 2013, became a shareholder at the Times in 2009 while the newspaper was lobbying lawmakers. Helu loaned the Times $250 million in 2009 and doubled his stake in 2015, making him the company’s largest shareholder.
Marlow asked why one of the richest people in the world would want to get involved with the New York Times, where its worth was around $1 billion (or 1/5th of Slim’s wealth). Marlow said if the establishment had an establishment, it would be the New York Times. He said it was “crystal clear” that the editorial decisions of the Times reflect the people in their leadership and that being one of the world’s most important papers, the Times has a lot of influence.
The Times has spent the last few years twisting every conservative story for corruption and trying to push through as many far-left agendas as they can.
Marlow revealed to Levant that he found this point of history “incredibly scary” as more conservatives are being called violent in the mainstream, even though there is so little violence coming from the right in the United States. He said that we are at a point in the country where conservative thought is considered violence and violent actions by the radical left are excused.
“You see it with the ‘mostly peaceful’ riots from Black Lives Matter— a lot of that was actually seen as acceptable because the cause was just in the eyes of the woke media. And I break down the history of this in the book, and I try to explain how we got to this point — but the point we’re at is incredibly scary. And this is being used as the pretext to throw people offline,” Marlow explained.
Marlow also pointed to Big Tech ties with the Times in his book. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg delivered a speech at a charity event in 2014 hosted by Carlos Slim, where he talked about reforming the U.S immigration system.
While working with the Catholic Association of Latino Leaders, Slim even began paying the amnesty fees for illegal aliens applying for the U.S Former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. And now Facebook, along with Google, Amazon, and Twitter, have been behind the lobbying efforts to push amnesty legislation this year.
Democrats have also launched multiple campaigns for amnesty and mass immigration, leading Marlow to point out that connections and corruptions like these could take “years” to unravel and reveal.
“All of this is to say that the paper is known for the motto “All the news that’s fit to print” is run in a manner less focused on comprehensiveness and accuracy and appears to be more focused on advancing agendas and vested interests. The New York Times is often used as a weapon for and against causes, usually political or cultural; those interests typically align with the globalist and liberal establishment figures who make up their personnel,” Marlow said.
Even South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem praised Marlow for exposing the New York Times agenda.
Great piece here from @AlexMarlow. This is precisely why I was the first national candidate to sign the 1776 Pledge by @1776ActionOrg which calls for a stop to anti American indoctrination like the “1619 Project” in our nation’s schools. https://t.co/8zSPF3aYty

The New York Times has made it perfectly clear that they will sell out to anyone with enough money and adopt their agenda. If NYT isn’t the epitome of propaganda, then I don’t know what is….but it sure isn’t ‘news.’
