Skip to comments.NY Times Takes Money From Violent Video Game Maker, Puts Bullet-Riddled Ad On Op-Ed Page
Posted on 01/22/2011 5:22:30 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
There I was this morning at the New York Times online op-ed page, the scene of so much self-righteous hand-wringing in recent weeks over the violence in our culture and rhetoric. I was deciding whether to subject myself first to Gail Collins or Charles Blow, when my eye was drawn to the ad you see here for something called "Project Blackout." A busty babe wields an assault rifle the Times surely wouldn't want in private hands. And look: the ad is peppered by bullet holes.
Click through to learn more about the violent video game, and you'll see the image [after the jump] of a man . . . in a crosshairs.
Note also the legend under the ad image that appeared on the op-ed page "Advertise on NYTimes.com".

Hypocrisy, thy name is The New York Times. Gray Lady puts bullet-riddled ad for violent video game on online op-ed page. Ping to Today show list.
Hollywood liberals, in particular, are also hypocrites when they blame Sarah Palin for violence. Hollywood puts out violence on an unprecedented scale.
PS: I’ll trade you the Magazine section for a violent video game. Deal!
The NYTimes has more disrespect for people than I thought.
This bullsh1t is a joke, right?
It CAN’T be an actual article.
As the author of the original article, I can vouch that it’s real.
I don’t see how continuously playing these violent games could not seriously dull your emotions when firing an actual weapon and actually killing real human beings.
There lies my consternation. I am against government censorship and have strong beliefs regarding parental controls.
My child would not be permitted to play these videos. No questions, no argument. If you live under my roof and I pay the bills then you had better expect that I am going to make the rules.
