So wucking phut. Let us hope something bad happens to them.
Yep, they're just outing themselves in flyover country as the America-hating fools they are.
I have *not read* the NYT continuously for my entire 63 years.
June 3: Complaint Seeks Data on Prisoners[Not front page]
The MSM community will be so outraged by the NYT's gratititous Abu Ghraib overkill, they will award the NY Times a Pulitzer Prize for it (mark my words).
Wow...mine stands at 47 years, 2 months, and 11 days.
This is unbelievable, isn't it?
So where is the coverage by the NY Slimes on the Benghazi, Libya Terrorist attack in which FOUR of our people have been killed?
New York Times coverage of the Benghazi Consulate Attack: NOTHING on the front page whatsoever! Zero, Zip, Nada !!
This on a day after the Sunday Morning News Shows were lit up with that as their number one topic for discussion.
I recall the Abu Ghraib Prison “torture and prisoner abuse” story ... remember that? The New York Times was all over that story.
Of course, that was when there was Republican in the White House. Even after the story had broken and later when there was NO NEW NEWS to report, the New York Slimes had it on their front page for THIRTY-TWO (32) DAYS back in April and May of 2004!!
Four of our people were killed in Benghazi, Libya. President Obama fiddled while Benghazi burned and our people were killed in a Terrorist attack, and the New York Times decides it is not important enough to report on their front page.
No wonder New York Slimes subscribers are dropping like flies!
