The New York Times: America's Unofficial Propaganda Ministry

The Times symbolizes scoundrel media.

by Stephen Lendman

For over a century, The Times played America's lead role disseminating state/corporate propaganda duplicitously. 

Its daily diet features managed, not real, news, information and analysis. Readers don't get what they pay for. They're cheated on what matters most. 

What it reports, other major media scoundrels regurgitate. Readers and viewers are left misinformed and uninformed in the dark.

Wealth and power support defines its agenda, especially when America goes to war or plans to. In the lead, The Times cheerleads supportively.

Last year, it backed NATO's killing machine in Libya. It sanitized mass killing, destruction, and human misery. Now it's waging war on Syria and Iran. It vilifies regimes Washington opposes. It defends sabotage and targeted assassinations. 

It blames both countries for defending their sovereign rights. It turns victims into villains. It ignores lawless Western intervention. It brazenly justifies the unjustifiable. It backs the worst of imperial lawlessness. It cheerleads war, the more the better. It denigrates leaders supporting diplomatic solutions.

Its February 1 editorial headlined, "Russia's Bad Bet on Syria," saying:

"Since the largely peaceful revolt (erupted) last March, security forces have killed nearly 6,000 protesters and the toll is rising. Yet the (Security Council) is paralyzed, unable (to stop Assad from) killing or leave power."

"....Russia, supported by China and India, (defends) Assad and block(s) constructive action."

"The Russians, Chinese and Indians - invoking Libya - insist that they will not abide foreign military intervention in Syria or let a resolution be exploited to permit the use of force. That complaint loses credibility...."
