Ok, the cartoon about the D-Day Invasion raises a question from me. Of course I wasn't here then but was the Times Terrorist this bad back then as well?

If the Times was this bad in 1944, your post would have been in German.

No. The Chicago Tribune was though. Its publisher, Mr. McCormack, hated FDR. The Tribune ran a story about the battle of Midway that clearly indicated the US had broken the Japanese naval codes. Charges were brought but later dropped. Lucky for us, the Japanese were arrogant and did not believe the story and did not change their codes.

Today's editors are children of the 70s. They believe every war is Vietnam and every Republican president is Nixon. They think they stopped the Vietnam war and brought down Nixon, and are determined to do it again.

Here's a lovely cartoon by Pat Oliphant (another aging child of the 70s) that perfectly captures the attitude:

I don't think they helped their totalitarian heroes on D-Day, but they covered up and lied about Stalin's extermination of 5,000,000+ Ukrainians by famine.

No, the Times was run by patriotic Americans back then--REAL patriots. Not the kind who snear at us and CLAIM to be patriots. Like the Times and Mike Wallace and Dan Rather and Leslie Butt-the-Rear Stahl.

The point of the cartoon is that IF the Times were then as it is now, they would have announced D-Day.

Closer to 30 million and the NY Times still is proud of the Pulitzer that was awarded for Ukrainian blood.

For a real treat, go to www.marketwatch.com, type NYT in the stock search, and bring up a five year chart. The line goes straight down for the last four years. Most satisfying.

And their Walter Duranty shilled for communism and was awarded a Pulitzer prize in the 1930's, which is still proudly displayed at the NYT.

I wasn't there either. But I heard that Gen. Eisenhower briefed the press with restrictions on their publication until after D-Day, and as he left the room they gave him a standing ovation.

Thank you for the correction. From what I have read the famine proper murdered 5-10 million, and direct killing and deportation to death camps does indeed put the figure much higher. I'm no expert on it and am happy to get your input.

Whatever the exact number, it seems to be a genocide worse than the holocaust. I guess the reason we don't hear as much about it is that the Times and their ilk saw Hitler as "right-wing" and Stalin, as a leftist, got a pass. The ends justify the means, apparently, even if the means involve almost unimaginable mass murder and suffering.

At least on one major WWII topic, The New York Times kept mum.

(from a previous post)


The New York Times:
Can't do enough to protect evil terrorists

AND

Didn't seem to do much when innocents were dying by the millions

And yes, there was a Sulzberger at the helm at that time as well.

You can do the same thing for Clear Channel, the radio company that owns the syndication rights to Limbugh and has probably the largest number of radio stations clearing his show.

At one time in the late 90's that stock was trading in the 90's. Now it's just over 30 and no splits.

The NYT has published the street addresses of Cheney and Rumsfeld's summer homes.

In the "Escapes" section of the June 30 edition, the N.Y. Times printed huge color photos of the vacation residences of Cheney and Rumsfeld, "identifying the small Maryland town where they live, showing their front driveways and, in Rumsfeld's case, actually pointing out the hidden security camera in case any hostile intruders should get careless," Horowitz writes.

Times Travel section writer Peter Kilborn even makes sure enemies of the two men will know such details as where Mrs. Rumsfeld shops in the eastern shore town of St. Michaels, Md. where the two administration officials have weekend retreats.

He even lets the curious know what street the Cheneys and Rumsfelds have to use to get to their own road.

It's all part of the war against President Bush, Horowitz charges.

To see the Inquirer actually print a cartoon taking out after the Quisling Times is in itself amazing. Emailers , letters to the ed. in as many papers available should not stop. Educating the sleepy public on this treason is a necessity. As much as it is to publish every Dem-lib treasonous statement, Durbin, Waters, Pelosi, Reid et al. Since most of the public gets its news from the MSM, it is a necessity to show them a true, alternative reality from the Left.

Agreed, but to simply point out the slimes, because they have a liberal bent is disingenious if other media companies are down.

Look at Salem media which is 100% conservative content.

The Nazis were the totalitarians the NYT could oppose. However, they were covering up Stalin's crimes back in the 1930s and Walter Duranty won a Pulitzer Prize for his "coverage" of the Soviet Union.

Thanks. I posted this for two reasons: first, I think it is very significant that major editorial cartoonists are ridiculing the "newspaper of record," this is not just a Rovian attack by the rightwing noise machine. Second, I happen to believe making a laughingstock of the New York Times is the worst thing we can do to it. Trying it for treason only makes it a martyr for the freedom of the press and makes the Administration look fascistic. In this case, we should be following the sage advice of the late Lee Atwater, who said when your opponent is committing political suicide, don't save him - just get out of the way.

The difference between then and now "IS" TM BIlly Jeff, We were allied with COMMUNIST Russia then, We are not now, and the commies have a score to settle with us from the late great RR! Paybacks, it's not suprising really.

Every time they go public they make themselves easier targets. At some point even European pansies will tire of this.

I liked the Saturday Night Live sketch in the first gulf war, where the reporters were asking questions like, "What are our greatest areas of vulnerability, and how could the enemy best exploit them?"

Folks that know how need to start digging into the financial backgrounds of the the individuals in key positions to publish and the authors of Anti-American material

Also the companies that advertise with a particular media.
Who are the major stockholders what are there backgrounds and ideologies?
