With Beto O’Rourke all set to lose bigly next week, it seems even the New York Times is taking the opportunity to pour a little salt in his impending wound:
Long before he became a national liberal hero, Beto O'Rourke sided with the moneyed elite — including his investor father-in-law — against angry barrio residents, small business owners and even Jesuit priests in a redevelopment fight. @stefsaul https://t.co/3C9zS1wN7b

Also, did not know until today that Beto is a billionaire (or rather, is married to one). https://t.co/df4gWp2oTl

So Beto’s more of a Man of the Rich People, then. That definitely doesn’t line up with the image he’s so carefully cultivated. Maybe that’s why all these lefties are so ticked at the New York Times:

Nice. Just two years almost to the day after you torpedoed Hillary's campaign by amplifying a right wing talking point that proved to be a big fat nothing. pic.twitter.com/S5L42BJBZB

@nytimes Pathetic!! Waiting for the article about her emails. The timing is about right.

Genuinely disappointed in your hatchet journalism. But her emails… the timing you chose to release such an inconsequential “story” makes me sick to my stomach….

The NYT thinks it’s 1998 and that people like Beto and Gillum aren’t running against actual Nazis

Wow. Actual Nazis, huh?

Looks like the NY Times is now supporting Ted Cruz by printing this article the week before the election. Seriously, this is right up there with the timing of the erroneous "There's nothing to this Trump and Russia" story. It seems it may be time to cancel my subscription again.

Here we go. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Stop it, Dems and other logical people. Just stop it.

Seriously disappointed in you, your editors, your paper. We need you to be better and best. We really need you to be best.

Knock it off, that was a long time ago, so why the heck does it matter THIS WEEK???

It’s such a disgrace! Salt in wounds. I’m appalled. WTF

You're not good. You hurt people, @peterbakernyt.

This is so pathetic

There’s plenty more where that came from, of course.
If anyone needs us, we’ll just be over here eating our popcorn.
