The New York Times, liars or just stupid?????

This is a question I have been asking myself all week. Are the folks over at the Gray Lady really incompetent or do they think we are so stupid that they can lie to everyone time and again and no one will notice?

Funnily enough, this is the same question I have been asking myself for years whenever someone spews moronic republican talking points at me. "Do they really believe this shit or do they think I'm too uninformed to realize this is just a bunch of garbage?"

Maybe it's a combination of both. I really can't tell but how can I make them stop it!

2. All corporate media is the propaganda wing of the 1%

 

If you believe anything you see on the TV, read in the newspaper or hear on the radio you are being brainwashed and it's on purpose.

4. Or self-serving, greedy and malicious.

Controvercy, especially one that bolsters a popular rightwing conspiracy theory focused on the destruction of such a favorite arch nemesis like Clinton, is a ratings goldmine that pulls in the big bucks in increased ad revenues. Its a seductive combination that's just to tempting to resist.

6. Both

They've sucked since they changed management a number of years ago. They used to be more intelligent.

Now they're trying for the bottom of the barrel.

7. There are some within the D.C.

 

establishment who have a real hard on for the Clinton's. Remember the stories in the Nineties calling Bill and Hillary Southern White Trash. Well,most of those stories came via the connected crowd,and the SwiftBoat Network using the Little Rock Greenspun Newspaper Chain. Interesting how power players use the media to smack people down.
