NYT editor responds to McCain camp broadside
NY Times executive editor Bill Keller responded, in an e-mail to Politico, to Steve Schmidt's contention that the paper is pulling for Obama, and that "it is today not by any standard a journalistic organization."
"The New York Times is committed to covering the candidates fully, fairly and aggressively. It's our job to ask hard questions, fact-check their statements and their advertising, examine their programs, positions, biographies and advisors. Candidates and their campaign operatives are not always comfortable with that level of scrutiny, but it's what our readers expect and deserve."
The words turned to ashes as Keller spoke.
Come ON, you have to give it to them on “agreessively!”
Remember the front page investigative fact checking report (hit piece) on McCain’s galpal?
“The New York Times is committed to covering the candidates fully, fairly and aggressively. It’s our job to ask hard questions, fact-check their statements and their advertising, examine their programs, positions, biographies and advisors. Candidates and their campaign operatives are not always comfortable with that level of scrutiny, but it’s what our readers expect and deserve.”
So why aren’t you living up to your commitment, do your job, and give your readers what they expect and deserve?
Pictured below are some of the whacked out affirmative action liars with their hero, Jayson Blair plus their maggot infected leader, Pinch. These biased liars pose as op ed writers for the NY Slimes writing hit pieces about Sarah posing as opeds and editorials:
A serious pop quiz. Are you helping to finance the NY Slimes and its attacks against Sarah Palin?
About one year ago, Morgan Stanley unloaded a steamy smelling pot of NY Slimes stock from one of its mutual funds.
Still many left wing controlled mutual funds own pot fulls of the stinking NY Slimes stock. Is one of your mutual funds wasting your retirement savings to keep the Ny Slimes afloat? If so, you are helping to fund the Ny Slimes campaign against Sarah Palin and America.
Here is something, we can all do this week to start eliminating the NY Slimes as a threat to our nation.
We can do it at our computers and do it in less than 1 hour. Besides sending a severe warning to the NY Slimes and the mutual fund companies which buy and own NY Slimes stock. We will improve our precious investment capital being wasted on NY Slimes stock.
If a few thousand freepers did this simple action this week and a few thousand new freepers, friends and relatives each following week, we will have a terminal impact on the vile NY Slimes acts like their trashing of Sarah Palin.
Please send this simple "how to" to your blogs, friends, relatives and email lists. This action will serve as a cannon shot across the bows fo the other Dinosaur Liberal Fish Wraps re sedition will not be tolerated any more.
Want to smash the NY Slimes?
How many of us own mutual funds which own NY Slimes stock and even worse have increased their NYT holdings this year.
NYT investment by a mutual fund company is a terrible investment re the dollar loss in Stock value the last 2 years. Those investments are an attempt to keep the NY Slimes afloat with our mutual fund $'s.
Now it is very evident that the NY Slimes is an agent and abettor of the al Qaeda Serial Killers. The Slimes is endangering the lives of our families, friends, innocent Americans and every warrior of ours.
Go to this link to see if your mutual fund owns NYT.
When the MS Money stock home page comes up, enter NYT into the search area and hit enter and the following screen will show up re ownership of the NY Slimes stock:
The New York Times Company: Ownership Information
Highlight the Mutual Fund Ownership and hit enter.
If thousands of Freepers, whose mutual funds own shares of NY Slimes did the following:
We might have a lot more impact than trying to boycott companies which sell to the elite liberals of NYC and advertise in the NY Slimes.
In closing: There are no free lunches, and we must support Free Republic on a regular basis! (Link to Donate/Become a monthly donor to Free Republic)
Your readers expect you to lie and misrepresent all things republican and you never fail to deliver.
Enjoy your demise.
My first thought was “No one could say this with a straight face.” No wonder the NYT’s circulation is in the toilet-it’s target market is drooling idiots, and there just aren’t that many, even in New York.
The NYSlimes is being fair...next year they will concentrate on the Obama bin Biden ticket.
Must be something new.
Obama is out there claiming the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac problems are rooted in lack of regulation owing to GOP control. I would submit that they are rather the result of the federal regulation passed in 2000 under HUD head Andrew Cuomo mandating that 50% of mortgages approved be granted to low-income folks - those with the highest risk of default. We felt good about ourselves at the time, but now the chickens have come home to roost.
In 2003, President Bush recognized the problem and proposed Congress pass legislation to avert the crisis on the horizon. Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) and Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) said "no."
In 2006, Senator McCain again sounded the warning. Again it went unheeded.
And now, were you applying the same standard of aggressive fact checking to Obama as you are to his opponent, you would be calling him on this. You would also not hide the fact that former Obama advisor Jim Johnson was part of his VP selection committee. You would not gloss over his ties to former Fannie Mae CEO Franklin Raines, reported by your comrades at the Washington Post. You would not ignore former CEO Daniel Mudd's statement calling the Congressional Black Caucus the "Family" and "Conscience" of Fannie Mae. You would not obfuscate the fact that his National Finance Chairwoman, Penny Pritzker, headed a bank which specialized in subprime mortgages and cost the taxpayers $460M. In short, you would not shy away from the fact that candidate Obama is very close to the very people who helped cause the problem in the first place!
And that's just one issue!
Fortunately for you journalists at the NY Times, we in the pajamamedia are here to pick up the slack. No need to thank us, we're just putting the country first and doing our best to provide full disclosure so the electorate can make an informed decision come November.
Not much scrtuny of Obama as I see it. Three articles on Page one of the Palin family?
BWAAA HAAA HAAA!
Came out from under your rock to post this???
Thanks for the laugh MM~!
Oh, give it up, Keller. Please don’t insult the intelligence of the American people. I highly doubt that even YOU believe the Slimes is unbiased and NOT in the tank for Obama.
Fixed it up to make it more accurate.
I think it was Bush, or maybe it was Cheney, who during the 2000 presidential run was overheard on an open mike referring to a reporter from the NY Slimes as ‘a major league *sshole!
The consternation from the media over their remark was palatable and laughable, but there wasn’t anyone of them who said it wasn’t true.
Can’t remember who they referring to... Maybe somebody else can.
LOL, yea now its coming back, but I thought they did “we are your friends” line also, but I may be mistaken.
Great translation Redpoll....
As for us petit people-—we’re just waiting for Rupert Murdoch to buyout the steaming ashes of the NY Slimes and turn it into a real newspaper....Maybe then we will get “ALL the news that is fit to print” in a Fair and Balanced way...
Note to leftists...if you barfed at this.......good !
