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.
