JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: A NEW SENIOR EDITOR AT THE NEW YORK TIMES – THE SORRY RECORD OF THAT PAPER WON’T CHANGE ANYTIME SOON – COMPARING STATE DEPARTMENT WITH NEW YORK TIMES   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN

The New York Times is very much like American foreign policy.

On the outside, it’s all lip service to truth and integrity.

On the inside, it’s exactly and precisely the opposite.

The paper has a long history of prejudices and bad intentions and twisted journalism and work for the secret services while pompously trumpeting its superior merits.

It is, literally, as sick an institution as the State Department, no matter who happens to be serving at its head.
