NY Times Trash Talking

NY Times trash talks the Wall Street Journal:  "The [Pulitzer] awards this year included other notable firsts. The Wall Street Journal won its only Pulitzer since Rupert Murdoch bought the paper in 2007."  The WSJ won this year for its Obamacare editorials, written by 28-year old Joseph Rago.

Murdoch lives to destroy the NY Times, and it knows it.  The WSJ is now clearly the daily paper of intelligent readers.

Among other prizewinners, the LA Times won an award for its investigation of the Bell, California city government salary scandal, and Ron Chernow won for his bio of George Washington.  In a setback to Lincoln scholarship, Eric Foner won for his book on Lincoln and slavery.

Ben Boychuk had this interview, last November, with Chernow.

"The WSJ is now clearly the daily paper of intelligent readers." Umm ... Really? Any evidence? Anyone other than your friends who thinks this? I guess if you think that "intelligent" automatically entails right wing affiliation ... But surely no one even remotely rational thinks that. Surely.

He didn't say "rational", which implies one's ability to use reason. Words have meaning. Of course I think you're just projecting: the Left doesn't understand how any reasonable person could disagree with them, while the Right knows that people will always have the impossible - Progressive - desire to create Heaven on Earth, but that such sentiments are foolish (or, unintelligent).

Liberals read and control the New York Times. The New York Times' readership has fallen so badly that it really doesn't matter any more. It has become the laughing stock of the newspaper industry. It employs people with mental illness like Paul Krugman and Maureen Dowd and of course the plagiarist Jayson Blair. Need I say more....

You might want to educate yourself on The New York Times. You can enlighten your mind by picking up a great book called "Gray Lady Down" by William McGown. You will see how childish liberals destroyed one of the greatest newspapers of all time. Then you will understand Mr. Thomas' comment.

So, despite the fact that the entire "lame stream media" is under the control of liberals and their tyrannical ways, the liberally read and liberally controlled NYT is "the laughing stock of the newspaper industry." Hmm ... That doesn't seem quite right: a liberal newspaper being laughed at by a liberal industry. Oh, well. Don't let a little thing like logic or consistency ruin a perfectly good random remark.

Thanks, though, for the laugh: cowgirl insulting Krugman (again with the nasty remark about mental illness; amazing how ill-educated and unconcerned you actually are). He's doubtless worried. Maybe he should return the Nobel.

How much are the Arabs paying you to destroy our country you puke?

Your inability to read and comprehend is amazing.

No doubt you attended public schools. Let's try this again (you keep proving my point that liberalism is a mental illness)

A. Where did I STATE that the entire lame stream media is under the control of Liberals? Please point that out in my statement.

B. Where did I STATE that the newspaper industry was liberal?

Just to help you here is my statement again:

Thanks though for proving my point. You are a great liberal speciman.

March 22 2011: " the MSM in American is politically correct and are made of Tryannical LIberals."

February 15 2011: "Lame Stream Media - you all need to be fired for not vetting the busdriver in the White House. IDEALOGLY does not work."

Took me 30 seconds to find those. Want me to find more? And want me to start going on about how being a undereducated, Christian redneck in California is clearly indicative of mental illness?

And no, cowgirl: I was educated in private schools.

Let's try this again. Where in my statement in which I am now posting again did you find the following:

A. Where did I STATE that the entire lame stream media is under the control of Liberals? Please point that out in my statement.

B. Where did I STATE that the newspaper industry was liberal?

How difficult is this for you?

The newspaper industry includs everyone - WSJ, Human Events, The Weekly Standard, Townhall and the like. The MSM and Lame Stream Media is the New York Times, MSNBC, CNN.

Hope you did not pay much for that edumUKation in the private school.

Now that you are down playing with grammar and spelling, which is all you have to play with, why don't you take on my facts? In other words, grow a pair.

cow, your definitions are curious.

The "newspaper industry" includes Human Events, The Weekly Standard, and Townhall ? None of them are newspapers, none of them even pretend to be (which is fine) and the last one is a website.

The "MSM and Lame Stream Media" includes the actual newspaper the New York Times, as well as MSNBC, but does not include the Wall Street Journal? How can one NOT consider the Wall Street Journal part of the mainstream media? Also, how is FoxNews NOT part of the MSM?? One would think that the biggest TV news source would qualify a broadcaster for mainstream status.

Scanlon - your definitions are curious also. See I can play your silly game too.

It's curious for me to say that being "the biggest TV news source would qualify a broadcaster for mainstream status"??

Please, do enlighten me with your explanation. When I said "curious" I was trying to be more polite than just saying "non-sensical," although that's what I meant. What have I written above that doesn't make sense to you, and why?

You are all fluff Scallops and no substance.

By the way, you and your ghost writer must be writhing in pain about the 14 year old homeschool girl who took on the Adult Union Thugs in Wisconsin. She delivered facts and all those liberal union adults could do was deliver their middle fingers and foul mouths. Liberalism is a ..... well you know how to finish the sentence.

Also, I must assume that you and your ghost writer are furiously writing emails to your hero in at 1600 Pennsylvania Aveue. The Brillant One made a comment yesterday about Texas always being a Republican State. Wrong. The Brillant One who has a law degree from Harvard forgot about what is referred to as the White Primary in Texas. That was when the Democrats in Texas would not allow poor whites and black people to vote in Democratic primaries. It just has to suck to be Obama.


Sounds very interesting! I will check this out!
