"On Sunday, The New York Times’ dropped a bombshell report about President Donald Trump’s taxes that showed in 10 of the previous 15 years, the president did not pay any federal income tax. But the Times’ coverage is up against the near-unstoppable force that is Sean Hannity and the Fox News propaganda machine, which have consistently defended Trump against all such criticism — even though they also spent years taking the opposite position against Democratic politicians and regular Americans. It is now incumbent upon legitimate media outlets to see through the inconsistency and hypocrisy coming from the impenetrable Fox News infobubble.
The Times report, which is based around tax documents dating back more than two decades, portrays Trump as a chronic tax dodger and shows that he paid just $750 in taxes during the first year of his presidency. This report is the latest volley in the battle over Trump’s financial transparency, serving the important purpose of obliterating the bad-faith defenses Trump’s protective media phalanx had trotted out in response to two other stories revealing the president’s finances the paper had done before. In May 2019, the Times published a report showing that Trump’s businesses lost over $1 billion over the course of a decade, and in October 2018, the paper uncovered Trump’s legally dubious use of the tax code to extract hundreds of millions of dollars from his father’s real estate empire."
