More NYT columnists should follow his example to eradicate bias at the NYT.
His depression is understandable, working for the newspaper where truth goes to die.
He had to know it was a Hell Hole before signing on.
I never realized he had insulted Hillary.
i worked at companies before where i didn’t know it was shit show till i worked there. most medical companies are really nightmarish when you work there. asshole bonanza extravaganza
Well ya, but if you're a journalist you should be well aware of The NY Times. I mean, all of us know what it is, and we're not journalists. At least I'm not...thankfully.
I'm a developer. It would be like me taking a job at Google and acting surprised to find out it's full of Marxist nut jobs.
It is sad to see people here getting so soft. the person you were commenting to got 59 up votes and only one down vote. This New York Times Reporter breathed evil and paid the price. He fit right in at the New York Times ,he absolutely despised Trump. I have no sympathy for this guy and as far as I'm concerned put a urinal on his grave I've had it with this softness, it is killing us.
i worked with google, and even knowing i was surprised how many leftist nuts there everywhere, and extended to partner corporations who went full leftist just to suck google dick. what i thought was there, was a fraction of full story
And yet loads of people take jobs believing they’ll be the exception.
Most don’t kill themselves though. Sad :(.
More like taking a job at Google and discovering it's a gilded sweatshop. Sure, the amenities are nice and it's prestigious on your resume, but that's all just so you don't notice they're working you to death until it's too late.
Bari Weiss was at nytimes and clearly she is CIA so yes, even the CIA got depressed and left the nytimes haha
Go look at the articles he penned. The dude as strongly anti-Trump.
Glad Trump drove him to this escape. Wish more did it, like the entire Democrat Party.
Did he like Piña Coladas?
No, but apparently he had a thing for making love at midnight.
trump curse strikes again...
Pffft. Just get a new job. Was a puss.
What do you do when your only skill is lying
Run for office
Run for Congress as a democrat or RINO?
Run for political office.
I’m sure Adam Schiff would’ve had a spot on staff for this guy
His “staff” absolutely
I felt the same way until I read his collected works for Politico. This poor guy made his career contributing to the chorus of Orange Man Bad. I would expect him to be terribly depressed. He was either suicided or proven himself to not be a psychopath. How the rest of them live with themselves is our modern parlor game.
The line that got me was them calling him a "devoted father". I'm not a father, but I can promise if I were a devoted father I would not purposely leave my children without a father.
This. You don't ducking do this to your kids.
Suicide doesnt usually make sense like that. The mind is not that simple.
How do We know it was suicide? Hmmmmmm?
because the powers that be said so...and everyone here believes everything they say...ironically.
It was Killary
I didnt notice the "apparent" the first time. Huh, who knows then. Maybe time will tell.
They found him in a park. He shot himself in the back of the head twice. Come on man!
I understand the mind isn't simple and I understand depression. Your family is the biggest single motivator. He had a good job. I mean, NYT fucking sucks but I'm sure it payed well and he had benefits. He had the means and the ability to get help. There are so many options for a depressed person that has resources instead of traumatizing his wife and children for the rest of their lives.
It's mental illness, can't find logic in it.
Again, so many people have depression but understand they would not want to put their family in that position. He had plenty of other options to deal with that mental illness. He was selfish instead.
Also it has worked in Japan to slow suicide by train because the government would fine your family for the emergency services, delays in transportation, etc.
But then again they actually have honor and give a shit unlike most of our ‘residents’.
Agree. There has to be a voice, no matter how small, in your head telling you that if you go through with it, then you are a piece of shit.
If the lefties used logic they would become conservatives. Their lunacy is uncurable though, except by death.
Should call him a selfish asshole no devoted person would deprive people they share devotion with
Kids will probably better off without that leftist simp.
His proir career at Politico, and the damage there.
False idols leas to hell.
All Truth , All The Times........................AGENCY TRUTH
I'd be depressed if I worked at that shithole too.
Jump For Trump event is back!
Like TWIN TOWERS -----Taking the "Easy" way out
Also carbon footprints.
Prayers for his wife and children. :(
Yeah looking through his articles he was more of a regular political writer writing about mostly less-idiotic issues like Gen Z voters not be interested in republicans, ftx collapse, death penalty and the CA governor struggles
Like he's definitely a liberal but those are the kind of things normal journalists write about that are at least grounded in reality
So yeah prayers for his family
He worked for the NYT so his "family" was probably a cat that the neighbor feeds, his office buddies, and a bottle of pinot noir.
Or whomever replied to him on Grinder.
Thank you for being kind. We must. Until the trials begin, at least.
Until the show trials begin at least.
Glad this comment is here. My wife commited suicide 3 months ago, we have two kids 4&6 and I would never wish this on anybody…
I so sorry
Every once in awhile the NYT accidentally hires someone that isn't a complete sociopath and they can't handle the satanic conduct for long.
Right? Looking through his articles he definitely seemed like just a dude trying to be a journalist. Liberal journalist for sure but like a normal one that you would have seen 20 years ago and at least be somewhat grounded in reality, not one of these super cuck ones who is allergic to any actual fact unless it benefits them
Probably got a dei boss
Working for the New York Times is indeed depressing. And cognitive dissonance affects the body too.
Also living in New York
Does anyone remember, prior to 2020, when we would have celebs/athletes/notable people under 50 that would die and they would go to great lengths to mask that it was due to suicide or drug overdose.
Now, they blast out "HEY HE DIED BY HIS OWN HAND, CRACKED OUT ON METH, TOTALLY NOT DUE TO THE VAX!"
“Please respect our privacy”
That was the key phrase, correct!
STOP noticing things!
I also remember that people used to "suffer from depression." Or was "afflicted with depression."
Now, everything is a battle. Like, how the fuck was he battling depression? By being alive?
And they're all "Survivors"
I've seen plenty of people struggle with depression and not always come back alive from it, ngl you have no idea what the fuck you're talking about.
It was in reference to "everything is a battle"
I mean, not all of them.
what a piece of shit to do that to his kids
Lol, Scrolled back down to comment when it hit me
Does voluntarily injecting yourself with poison count as a suicide or did he do it the old-fashioned way?
Depends on whether you're trying to cash in on your life insurance policy.
From how the article is written it looks like he went to Greenland by his own hand
was he investigating Hillary?
He wasn't that suicidal
Guess he only shot himself in the back of the head once instead of twice, then?
Seriously though, I feel bad for his family.
“Why would Drumph do this?”
Given his track record of anti-Trump articles I doubt it.
I will not rejoice this person's death. We are not the hateful Left. Correct??
Most of the terminally online commenters here seem pretty hateful.
Most people have become pretty hateful. I blame anti-social media for that.
Yeah he seems like a run of the mill liberal journalist that we've always had that at least bases their articles on something close to reality.
Not one of these super cuck ones who are allergic to any fact that doesn't help their narrative
I ain't gonna shit on a dude for just being wrong.
I don't rejoice in his death because he's a Democrat. Rejoice is the wrong word, but I give less than zero fucks about anyone who commits suicide. Life is a precious gift and to willingly throw it away is the most selfish and disgusting thing I can think of. He has children... He can rot.
Every time I see someone killed themselves I laugh at their weakness and selfishness, hope they rot, and never allow them to occupy space in my brain again. Buh bye, loser. Your family deserved better.
17 years ago my husband shot himself in the head. Care to comment?
You can read my comment on that above.
Weak. You deserved better.
Yes. Only the strong deserve to live.
That's why we need to kill off the elderly and the poor, and we should also encourage depressed people to get worse because their weakness slows us down.
That's not what I said at all, but put words in my mouth all you wait. I said life is a gift and those who throw it away willingly are weak and selfish.
There are countless people with terminal illnesses who would do ANYTHING for one more day/week/year with their loved ones and then you have selfish people who just throw it away. Those people are weak and selfish and they don't deserve my pity.
Edit: ahh, I see you're a handshake who's lashing out all over this site. Seems you didn't deserve my attention either but I was dumb enough to give it to you. Carry on.
Fuck him. They should all follow suit as far as I'm concerned
I think it’s sad that people here take joy from anyone’s suffering and death. That’s what the left does. We should pray for this man’s soul and for his family to find peace.
"Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster." Nietzsche.
Even when the left loses a life, some on the right still give them a win by becoming more like them.
That sounds so cute and noble until the suicide is discovered to have been a closeted pedophile with a hard drive full of evil things
Then suddenly you noble hypocrites sing a different tune. You're full of it.
I'm not saying this talking about this guy who died because I don't know who he is or what he called for.
But there are people who I absolutely rejoice in the death of. If someone thinks that I should be in prison for refusing the jab, I'll rejoice in their death. Are you telling me that this country wouldn't be a better place the minute someone like Nancy Pelosi kicks the bucket? Some people want to control your life so much that it's impossible not to cheer for their deaths.
Method of suicide... 5th booster.
Being a lying POS takes its toll.
I read that as "NYT communist"
Tragically? Passed away? Sounds so gentle. The guy KILLED himself. he is NOT a victim
Well his name IS HoundsofHell…
Oh a journalist? Next please
Gonna be a lot of this going around.
Good. Who's next?
Cool. Now the rest of the communist demon scat in the world needs to follow this fucker's example.
And nothing of value was lost.
Once you have children, it is too late to kill yourself. Selfish bastard.
BREAKING NEWS: NY Times Columnist Blake Hounshell has information that will lead to the arrest of Hillary Clinton.
Definitely vaccinated and boosted. Can you imagine how much worse it could have been.
No way one can be a functioning journalist and also suffer from life or death depression.
Anyone with kids that commits suicide is the lowest form of scum.
When your enemy is killing themselves, don’t get in the way.
I don’t care.
I'll be losing serious sleep over this. Anyway, what's for lunch?
Them damn blood oaths 🩸 are hell when you grow a conscience afterwards!
