New York Times: Nothing 'significantly
new' in 'politicized' Libya hearings

Politico, by Dylan Byers

Original Article

Posted By:Bubbasuncle, 10/11/2012 5:01:26 PM

New York Times Managing Editor Dean Baquet said today he doesn't see "anything significantly new" in yesterday's congressional hearings on Libya, while both he and the paper's executive editor Jill Abramson suggested the hearings were politicized and therefore not worthy of front-page coverage. Baquet and Abramson's remarks come in response to criticism from the paper's own public editor, Margaret Sullivan, who objected to the editors decision not run its story about the hearings on today's front page. Both the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal gave yesterday's hearings

I recall that the "Tut, Tut" defense was used by the mainscum media during Clinton's impeachment gala. It worked then; it will work now with the booboisie.

Glad to see the NYT continuing to destroy itself. They have lied at least since the 1930's when they reported how great communism was in Russia under Stalin.

The very last NY Times editorial, read by its last remaining reader, will be its endorsement of the reelection of Michelle Obama as president.

Paper will cease to exist after one final exhortation that the best person for ending the 12 year depression and World War III is President Michelle Obama.

New York Times still has the Walter Duranty Pulitzer Prize on their wall for his coverup reporting of the Ukrainian famine created by Stalin. Millions died.

The NYT has been covering up for Marxists since the '30s.

The Gray Lady is in her death throes. It is not a pleasant spectacle - and all the signs are that it will get worse and worse until she gives up the ghost. Those in charge of her are unworthy of her. They will continue to damage her credibility and sully the remains of her reputation, all in the service of a sordid partisanship that is blatantly obvious to everyone but themselves.

When I realized last week that the administration was actually going to take the tack of blaming Romney/Ryan and ignoring the the attack itself (after sticking to the lame line of a cleric-approved video nobody saw long after it had reached its stale date) and stick with the dead bodies are just "bumps in the road" schtick, I wondered if the American people would stand for it.

As if the rape, the murders and the multiply ignored requests for security and the regimes subsequent lies weren't "significant" enough? Oh, I forgot, the NYT didn't think they were significant enough. Neither, apparently, does Obama. We'll see if the public is awake enough to care.

I watched that entire hearing and was sick afterwards. Didn't think anything could make me sicker until yesterday. Even after the slaughter which our government watched real time on a video camera (and the video is "unavailable" to the congress)and then re-played in my head, the casual way obama treated this, the way the people around him are treating it, this is a horror show and has to stop on November 6, 2012.

According to Cutter, Americans could have cared less about the murder of 4 embassy employees until Romney/Ryan brought it up. Once Barry vacates the WH kicking and screaming and trashing the place, Cutter will probably go to work at the NY Slimes at some outlandish salary which hopefully will bankrupt this Pravda so-called newspaper once and for all.

Not true #1. The NY Times would report America going to hell. and the headline would look something like this:

America Gong to Hell: What did Bush Know and When Did He Know It, Women and Minorities Affected Most.

Then they would editorialize on how if the Republicans would just get out of the way, Obama would fix it.

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine, Ukraine - Masked gunmen stormed the parliament of Ukraine´s strategic Crimea region as Russian fighter jets screamed above the border, while Ukraine´s newly formed government pledged to prevent a national breakup with the strong backing of the West - the stirrings of a potentially dangerous confrontation reminiscent of Cold War brinksmanship. Moscow reportedly granted shelter to Ukraine´s fugitive president, Viktor Yanukovych, who was said to be holed up in a luxury government retreat and to have scheduled a news conference Friday near the Ukrainian border. As gunmen wearing unmarked camouflage uniforms erected a sign reading "Crimea is Russia"

Piers Morgan and CNN Plan

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

NEW ORLEANS — AJ McCarron got up slowly and walked alone to the sideline with the full weight of another dispiriting loss weighing him down. His fumble on a sack turned into an Oklahoma touchdown with 47 seconds left, sealing the Sooners’ 45-31 victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday night. In a painful twist, McCarron ended his illustrious college career by losing twice in a row after going 36-2 in his first 38 games at Alabama. Oklahoma, a 17-point underdog, scored two touchdowns off his interceptions in the first half before capping the upset by returning his

Most knockout victims that have appeared in news reports have been white, but the Justice Department said in this instance the victim was a 79-year-old black man, and stepped in with federal charges. “Suspected crimes of this nature will simply not be tolerated,” said Kenneth Magidson, the U.S. attorney for the southern district of Texas. “Evidence of hate crimes will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted with

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and
