New York Times accused of running ‘puff piece’ on Warnock, ‘hit piece’ on Perdue ahead of Georgia runoffs

The liberal New York Times ran features on Democratic Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock and Republican Sen. David Perdue, but one has been called a "puff piece" while the other was labeled a "hit piece" by the partisan newspaper.

Warnock is locked in a tight Senate runoff race with Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler. That, along with the other runoff between Perdue and Democrat Jon Ossoff on Tuesday, will determine which party controls the Senate next year.

The Times praised Warnock with a glowing piece published Saturday headlined, "Raphael Warnock, From the Pulpit to Politics, Doesn’t Shy From ‘Uncomfortable’ Truths."

The feature praised Warnock, only mentioning his skeletons in that "Republicans have tried to paint him as a dangerous radical," a past arrest for which charges were dropped, and an "incident" with his ex-wife last year. It did not mention accusations of child abuse at a camp Warnock ran or that his ex-wife tearfully called him a "great actor" during the latter incident, where she accused him of running over her foot with his car.

Meanwhile, the Times’ Friday feature on Perdue wasn’t quite as friendly. Headlined, "Before Embracing America-First Agenda, David Perdue Was an Outsourcing Expert," the piece paints him as a hypocrite.
