Years ago my father was head of civil defense back home. We had a big flood that drove people out of a poor black neighborhood. They were put up in schools and other public buildings. He observed that some agency (Red Cross? Salvation Army? I don't remember) was operating a kitchen and feeding the refugees. He told me he asked why weren't some of the refugees put to work cooking and serving food. The reply was that there was no way to check them for disease, and they might spread an epidemic throughout the rest of the refugees. Made sense to me at the time. I suspect the volunteers at the Convention Center were following the same policy.

What's the difference between a story the New York Times admits having fabricated and one they don't.....the admission.

Doubtful slander?
I'm curious. Which part?

By the way, the moderator last time didn't even give us time to note the phone numbers attached to that particular version of the "urban legend" post.

Allesandra Stanley seems to have a real credibility problem. No wonder the NY Slimes loves here. One blog who has checked her out has this to say: "While we prefer to ridicule Stanley’s critical colleague Virginia Heffernan, we must give due credit to Reference Tone’s exhaustive study, which unearths more than one correction a month since 2001 - and 11 percent inaccuracy rate in that period, Cook says, and a 14 percent inaccuracy rate this year — and lists them all." see: http://www.gawker.com/news/tv/critical-errors-125112.php

It would take a brick in the skull for some to believe what is the truth..I believe everything about this, for one I do know several people that worked and were verbally abused by some of these people..One told a friend what do you think I am your nigger..when ask if he would hand food to someone...

Reminds me of this old article.

NY Times Ed: "The Major Press is Under Attack"
Wednesday, 23 February 2005, 3:03 pm
Column: William Rivers Pitt

"The Major Press is Under Attack"
By William Rivers Pitt,

Excerpt:
Bill Keller, executive editor of The New York Times, was the keynote speaker at Columbia University's Blue Pencil Dinner on Friday night. In his talk, he made it abundantly clear that the flagship of American journalism doesn't think much of the rise of the alternative media:

===

On the state of print journalism in America today, Bill Keller, executive editor of The New York Times, said, “This is not a time when editors swear off alcohol.”

Keller was the keynote speaker at Friday night’s Blue Pencil Dinner, an annual Spectator fund-raiser held in Low Rotunda. The event served both as a chance for Spectator staffers to learn about journalism from insiders and for alumni to reconnect with the paper.

Keller’s speech focused on the struggle of print journalism to maintain its relevance in the face of constant cable news updates, increased blogging, and failures in credibility.

Nothing will ever match the Stalinist propoganda that Walter Duranty wrote for the Old Gray Whore back in the 1930's. The Slimes still refuses to return the Pulitzer Prize that Duranty won for what is now acknowledged by almost everyone as complete lies.

Well what does your post have to do with the original thread..

My post has to do with your post. I was wondering why someone would post such bigoted bull$hit on this thread that has nothing to do with your post.

Just because the evidence doesn't support it doesn't mean it isn't true.

“I don’t want realism. I want magic!....Yes, yes, magic. I try to give that to people. I do misrepresent things. I don't tell truths. I tell what ought to be truth."

That's funny, I used that as the motto of Gov. Blanco Dubois just yesterday. But it could apply to any leninist/liberal.

I expect the percentages were a bit exaggerated. I saw plenty of interviews with a lot of well meaning individuals, single mothers, family members looking for their loved ones. But there were also the the punk-a$$ed mofos chunkin' gang sign in the background, the disgruntled ones, the perpetually mistreated. Still and all though, the rescue operation seemed to go fairly smoothly, and was a success mainly because they didn't stay for month after month.

I do resent it when mainly white people come to the rescue and then the jacksons and farrakhans start spouting the racist talk and then the po folks start talkin' racist too. That is insulting beyond measure.

A true liar will never stop.

Neither will a socialist, communist, terrorist, rapist, child molester, murderer, junkie, or arsonist.... They are sick bastards.

But a nudge is a fact, not an opinion.

The NYSlimes is entitled to its opinion, but not its own 'facts'!!!
