The New York Times: Distorting and Suppressing Truth for Power - by Stephen Lendman

Imagine doing it since 1851. Imagine being called the "newspaper of record," producing "All the News That's Fit to Print."
Imagine an establishment publication representing wealth and power, backing corporate interests, cheerleading imperial wars, ducking uncomfortable issues too sensitive to report, and functioning as an unofficial ministry of information and propaganda.
Imagine relying on it for real information and analysis at a time it's vanishing except online.
