New York Times Hypocrisy

NYT lies for power.

New York Times Hypocrisy

by Stephen Lendman

NYT's attempts to set the record straight are duplicitous. They come too late to matter.

On May 26, 2004, Times editors headlined " The Times and Iraq ," saying:

"Over the last year this newspaper has shone the bright light of hindsight on decisions that led the United States into Iraq." 

"We have examined the failings of American and allied intelligence, especially on the issue of Iraq's weapons and possible Iraqi connections to international terrorists." 

"We have studied the allegations of official gullibility and hype. It is past time we turned the same light on ourselves."

It discussed "journalism that we are proud of." It reflected "an accurate (picture) of the state of our knowledge at the time."

It was based on duplicitous intelligence, hawkish neocons, and Iraqi exiles paid to lie.

Times editors admitted "a number of instances of coverage that was not as rigorous as it should have been."

Information used was "controversial. (It) was insufficiently qualified or allowed to stand unchallenged. Looking back, we wish we had been more aggressive"."
