That loud crash you just heard off in the distance was the New York Times finally hitting the bottom of the barrel with an embarrassing but expected thump.
Having long ago turned its back on objective journalism to become the mouthpiece for liberal ideology, the Democrat party, and corrupt unions, it was still somewhat of a surprise to see the compromised editors of the paper do something which might cause Anthony Weiner to recoil from its unseemly request.
On Friday, June 10th, the State of Alaska released more than 24,000 of former Governor Sarah Palins emails. A Democrat recently told me that some liberals get more satisfaction out of a Palin mistake, or in smearing her and her family with more political mud than in the actual killing of Bin Laden. Apparently.
The New York Times -- under the headline Help Us Review The Sarah Palin E-Mail Records -- has just asked its readers to help its reporters to identify interesting and newsworthy emails, people, and events that we may want to highlight. Interesting and newsworthy being nothing more than liberal code for anything which will inflict further pain and suffering upon Sarah Palin and her family.
At first, I honestly thought it was a joke. Maybe David Letterman and Jon Stewarts writers got sick of being mindless servants to the left and decided to have some fun at the expense of the Grey Lady. But no. Those writers still do the bidding of the Messiah in the White House and The New York Times is beyond serious in arming its readers with pitch forks and torches as it eagerly sends its virtual mob out in search of the conservative monster. (It should be noted -- again predictably -- that the equally left-wing Washington Post initiated its own Sarah Palin email witch hunt)
Maybe next, The New York Times will ask its readers to become informants against their neighbors or even family members. "Tell us," the next New York Times headline might read, "who is not using "green" light bulbs, who is not driving a hybrid vehicle, who is sending their children to charter schools, who just ate at McDonald's, and who especially on your block or in your neighborhood, still believes in traditional values."
That headline and that request just seems like the next logical step in the New York Times spiraling flight from dignity and into literary dementia.
I dont seem to remember The New York Times asking its readers to review the 2000 plus pages of Obamas Healthcare bill, or to review the emails sent from the thuggish Service Employees International Union, or to help it get access to the names on the White House visitor logs team Obama is trying to hide, or to try and find anyone who might be able to prove if Obama actually had a higher G.P.A. in college than Joe Biden.
No. Facts and relevant information no longer interest The New York Times. Not when they can create an army of snitches to try and further harm the former governor of Alaska.
Surely, there must be one person at that paper shocked and humiliated by this request. Just one.
A request that is as pathetic as it is chilling.
Don't bet on it
You forgot their advertisers - TNYT’s bread and butter.
And damn few of their remaing readers will think there's anything wrong with it either.
Does anybody think that a person could get a job scrubbing toilets at the NYT if his/her politics were anywhere to the right of Karl Marx?
New York Times = New York Slimes
Yes, but the NYTimes DID ask its readers to pour through the Climategate emails for information.
They did, didn’t they?
Can some one help me out here—I was under the impression that the type of publishing (propaganda) engaged in by the NYT, LA Times, and others constituted campaign contributions. Doesn’t this need to be classified as financial contribution to the Democratic Party?
Or the East Anglia emails.
With its reputation and credibility shot, the NYT probably figures it has nothing to lose by jumping the shark.
Are they going to pay these new workers minimum wage? Or are they just going to Huffington Post them?
I wouldn’t wipe my azz with the New York Times.
It would be an insult to my azz.
You know, it was only 35 years ago that the New York Times was still considered a credible and trustworthy newspaper. In fact, it was even known to many people back then as “the newspaper of record”. My, how the mighty have fallen! Nowadays, the National Enquirer has more credibility.
The New York Times All the News that fits our views
The L.A. Times did the same thing. They don’t have enough time or resources to do it themselves so they ask their readers to do it.
Not only Pathetic but also in a way dangerous.
Could not their Liberal Bias Agenda be even more obvious.
Thanks so very much for all the money you peed away coming to Alaska to purchase the Palin emails. We can always use a few extra dollars from the lower-48. We hope you got to see a few sites while you were here and didnt just pick up the boxes and leave. If your plans arent too fixed might we interest you in the used paper hand towels from our government building bathrooms for the next two months. Youll have to pick them up in person and who knows what DNA youll find.
