I know that's a strong headline, but imagine you're a person who only gets his or her news from the New York Times. For many people, that isn't much of a stretch.
You open up today's Times to the Page 3 feature on the Beslan horror. It doesn't mention that the terrorists were Muslims.
I know, I know. The sun rose today in the east, the sky is blue, roses are red, and the Times won't call terrorists Muslim. What else is new?
How about altering a quote specifically to remove any implication that the Beslan terrorists were Muslims?
The wire services reported, in a quote printed in thousands of newspapers, that the captured Beslan terrorist said, "By Allah, I did not shoot."
Today's Times piece quotes him as saying, "By God, I did not shoot"a translation that no other news organization has used.
In other words, the Times wanted so badly to leave Islam out of its Beslan feature that it altered the terrorist's quote.
This is more than political correctness. This is the deliberate alteration of a news quote to create the false impression that a terrorist follows the Judao-Christian God and not Allah.
This is an outrage.
No kidding, because my accepted translation of Allah is Satan, the blood-sucking moon god.
Did you think the NYTs was on our side?
Let me give that one a try.
Most of the editorial staff is queer, and they hate Christians--who are here--more than the muslims--who are over there.
Well...the AP invented whole facts in its "boo" coverage of Bush's campaign.
Tonight while channel surfing, I heard someone on CNN ask a guest if the media is in collusion with the terrorists because they refuse to call them "terrorists." The guest said it is because the news outlets are AFRAID to call them terrorists for fear of retaliation. Now that's a new twist. I couldn't believe what I was hearing!
The NYT has always been full of manure. If you have ever seen copies of the NYT in the early 1930's referring to Germany rearming as; "it being their right", then turn around and call Adolph every name in the book, except socialist, after Germany invades Russia in '42, than you'd know the "Fix Was In" at the NYT a long, long time ago.
I fail to see your point. Substituting "God" for "Allah"
makes all the difference in the world, imho.
That's pretty funny since he was the supreme leader of the National Socialist Party.
The New Left Times has totally lost it to blind, self-absorbed, liberalism and anti-Americanism. After all, look at their reader-base.
It is disgusting to think about our troops and our military in general, that continues to protect this country with their lives, given daily, to protect these ANTI-AMERICAN SCUM that daily, with their presses, attempt to tear down the very fabric of America.
If I could, I would shut down the NYT, until they could provide some justification as to WHY OUR TROOPS SHOULD DIE TO PROTECT THIER FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS!!!!
What a sad commentary about the so-called newspaper of record.
NYT is a piece rag. I rather read Pravda then this piece of tripe.
The New York Times: "All the news that's fit to censor."
On that topic, did Rush mention the this issue today, I didn't have an opportunity to listen?
Hmmm. "Collusion". That's the very word I used yesterday in a thread to describe the commie medias refusal to call the terrorists what they are.
Is CNN lurking again?
What's "boo" coverage? You've stumped my amoeba-like brain.
