Pinch Sulzberger where it hurts (FR mentioned-Kudos to freeper Fedora)

Pinch Sulzberger where it hurts

Fedora, a diligent researcher at Free Republic, documents the New York Times history of revealing state military secrets. 

  In his press conference today, the President indicated he believed an investigation has been launched into the latest, most serious of these leaks—the revelation of methods in NSA's surveillance of contacts between terrorists abroad and their cohorts here. 

It is time for those who advertise in the NYT and therefore underwrite , however unwittingly, this perfidy to take a stand: Are they for weakening the ability of the US to protect us (and their businesses) or not? 

I propose they review their advertising budgets, and divert a sizable amount normally spent at the Grey Lady to charitable organizations dedicated to the well being of our servicemen and women and their families, whose burden has been made more difficult by this latest leak.

If they find this not to their taste, perhaps we can organize pickets outside their establishments to let consumers know that they care so little about the issue that they are unwilling to take even this small step to express their disapproval of the NYT's outrageous effort to undercut the War on Terror.

 If the NYT doesn't care and it's advertisers think that's fine, they are moving themselves into the Ground Zero of consumer sentiment.

Pinch Sulzberger should be in prison, he knowingly printed US Government classified information. This is no different than Ethel and Julius Rosenberg

The fall of the stock price of the NYT is appalling. It would seem that the NYT has no business plan. We need to see the plan, any plan. We need to know how the NYT got into this financial quagmire and how they plan to extract themselves.

Exactly, a plan, with benchmarks, and a timetable for immediate redeployment of assets.

I would like to think that this comment caused a few Democratic sphincters to twitch. But I no longer believe it. It appears that the prevailing Washington sentiment is that no Democrat can do wrong, even if he's committed treason.

Thanks:-)

Your solid research on the shameful history of the NYT was too important to let drop off the sidebar. This thread should stay on the FR sidebar for at least a while longer.

Hopefully, it will give those freepers unfamiliar with what I consider the long seditious record of that digusting rag a real insight into what we are up against.

It's no strech to say that much of today's media shapes it's reporting from the daily marching orders handed down from The Old Red Lady.

Thank you for the time and effort you spent compiling this history. :-)

They appear to have taken their plan from the Islamic terrorist model -- commit suicide and take as many of their enemies out with them as they can.

Please check the link in this short article outlining the shameful history of the NYT and consider sending this around to your ping lists.

I apologize in advance if I am being presumptious, but since I'm on your ping list I thought it worthwhile to bring this to your attention.

O'Reilly tonight interviewing the press officer for Governor Sonny Perdue of Georgia elucidated the toilet-bound trend of the Atlanta Journal Constitution (Cynthia Tucker's leftward lunge responsible) and the San Franciso Chronicle.

The New York Times makes a third propaganda organ of the Left listing after collision with the irresistable force of the new and uncompromising media.

Hats off to Fedora.

I think we as Freepers should seriously form a way to contact advertisers en masse. It worked before during the Fake Memo scandal and IT WILL work again. This is a great idea, somebody just needs to get in front and lead.

I suspect even if the nytimes went bellyup someone like Soros would bail them out.I find it amazing that people actually believe what they read in the times.

Even though Pinch Sulzberger is a pervert and a demented idiot, he is nevertheless thoroughly incapable and incompetent to run a newspaper.

Who in the hell is stupid enough to give, "off the record", any classified information to Sulzberger, and/or to any NYT staff? Why is the government depositing classified info into MEDIA outlets? Keep an eye on the Democrats and traitors like John Kerry and Jay Rochefeller. Well, Kerry and Rochefeller are more direct - they run off their mouths in covert meetings with the enemy.
