The New York Times vs. The New York Times

By Debbie Schlussel
So, the Republicans were accused by the New York Times (and other mainstream media outlets) of lying about WMD, Saddam Hussein’s record, and assorted other things about Iraq.
Under the pressure, the GOP members of Congress insisted on posting documents captured in Iraq. And now the NYTimes is blaming the GOP for posting the docs, saying it helps Iran in their nuclear weapons quest? Is this the GOP’s fault . . . or the NYTimes and the rest of the liberal media’s fault? Just asking.


Then, there’s the other issue:
The New York Times doesn’t have a problem endangering our national security and helping terrorists by posting front page info on the SWIFT bank transfer surveillance program, NSA surveillance and wiretaps, etc.
Yet, when the GOP Congress posts documents capture in Iraq, THEY are blamed by the NYTimes for endangering our national security and helping terrorists, by accidentally disclosing nuclear info to Iran?
We suppose if you are the “newspaper of record” and deliberately hurt America, it’s okay. But if you’re the Republican-dominated Congress and do it by accident, then it’s a prob.
Nice twisted logic.

Does their “do as I say, not as I do” reporting really surprise you? It would be surprising if they DIDN’T waffle on their opinions.

It’s elections time. Everything is allowed for the Liberals thugs of the New York Times. They hope they can find some readers to replace those who abandoned them.
In fact, the NYT, CNN, MSNBC, FOX NEWS, ABC, CBS, NBC, LA TIMES, NY POST, Washington Post are no longer a reliable source of news. I’ve thrown them away.
My sources for news are the Internet and the radio, especially talk radio.
I still watch the local news, that’s it, until further notice.

Since Saddam never had nuclear weapons, this must be a Republican hoax…
Logic? Consistency? If you want them, buy a dictionary.

There were WMD in Iraq. PM Ariel Sharon of Israel announced in late 2002 that convoys of trucks were moving WMD development systems into Syria. Syrian anti-govt exiles have also reported that Iraqi WMD facilities, equipment, supplies, etc. were moved into Syria and claimed to have info about where they were. Professor Raphael Israeli of the Truman Institute in Jerusalem wrote in Nativ that WMD supplies had been transferred from Iraq to Syria. The fact that Bush no longer pays any attention to this issue shows that something is wrong with him. Bush allows himself to be called a liar on the Iraqi WMD issue, while overlooking the WMD presence in Syria.
