Is The New York Times Trying to Paint Bergdahl as a Victim/Hero?
Newsbusters ^

Posted on 06/10/2014 8:33:55 AM PDT by chessplayer

In a clear and desperate attempt to whitewash Obama's ill-fated swap of what is increasingly appearing to be an army deserter for five unrepentant deadly dangerous terror leaders (two of whom have been named war criminals by the United Nations) for a U.S. soldier, The Times has gone into overdrive, now seemingly blaming those with whom Bowe Bergdahl served for his apparent desertion.


TOPICS: News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: bergdahl
The only thing missing now is libs demanding he get the Medal of Honor.

He is a victim of left wing ideology.

I’ve never seen more biased and disgusting reporting that I now see coming from the NYT. Not sure how long they can keep this up and claim to be a news organization.

The NYT will paint Bergdahl any color or shade that Obama wants.

SSDD.


The actual frontpage of The New York Times of November 11, 1938
did not mention that the German Nazi government actually initiated the NewYorkTimes-supported attacks.
Instead, the New York Times lied and protected the Nazis, falsely claiming that Goebbels called to stop it.

When this excuse fails, the New York Times will switch to ‘it’s the fault of a Republican’...

Or, “Republicans did something similar 150 years ago, so it’s all the same’....

They are such shameless butt-kissers...

The United States Army exists to fight. Only dumbasses lose track of that reality.

There is only one question you need to ask about this unit.

“Did they have the courage and commitment to go into hostile territory to try and rescue one of their own?”

The answer is....yes. Everything else is meaningless. When the enemy agrees to fight by having beauty contests, then the New York Times might have a point. Otherwise, they need to shut up.

Attacking these Soldiers is shameful. They did their duty. Obama and Bergdahl and the New York Times didn’t.

The NYT is about as much of a news organization as the Pravda was in the former Soviet Union, where it spoon-fed the daily line to the simple folks of Mother Russia. While there is still a version of Pravda today in the Russian Federation, the blatant propaganda is considerably toned down.

NYT, on the other hand, is definitely turning up the volume.

Bergdahl obviously deserves the benefit of every doubt because he selflessly volunteered and was serving our country heroically under very difficult and stressful circumstances, unlike the other soldiers in his platoon, who were all baby-killing psychos.

If the regime can take a “black hispanic” turn him into a “white hispanic”. Who was doing his job rightfully checking out a suspicious activity into “a racist stalking”. Portray that modest income integrated gated community where he was working security and turn that into an “exclusive” white rich jews neighborhood. Then make a victim out of his attacker because “he could have been my (Obama’s)son” or later even “could have been me” (Obama).

Then have that “story” go unchallanged by any in political opposition getting repeated for months as “truth”. Resulting in at least a dozen or more whites,hispanics and asians being murdered by black youths attributing their activity to that episode.

Why can’t they take a traitor converted terrorist and make him into a national hero ? Use him as an excuse to double cross the Afgans because its president (Karzi) was giving Obama a bad time by exchanging 5 who are in effect experienced taleban officers that will wind up back in Afganistan which will put to waste the American lives spent as well as US efforts to create a democracy.
