New York Times PAID Lion’s Share of the MoveOn Ad!


It turns out that the NY Times paid for the bulk of MoveOn’s “General Betray-us” ad!

MoveOn only paid $65,000 for the full page ad that usually runs (according to the NY Time’s own rate book) some $167,157!

That means the NY Times picked up almost two-thirds of the ad price for MoveOn’s slanderous ad.

Moreover, it places the NY Times squarely in the radical camp, along with other notorious anti-American netroot organizations from MoveON to the D-Kos.

I guess we can’t say the NY Times has “a Liberal bias” any more. It’s more like a radical, anti-American one.

Hmmm, how come righties get so upset when liberal, radical-liberal, or loonie-liberals get to express themselves? You always act like something terrible has happened when, in fact, something wonderful has happened--freedom of speech. So MoveOn has some agenda you don't like, so the NYT seems to be palsy-walsy with MoveOn, so what?

The term "anti-American" and others like it are terribly popular with "conservatives" who don't like what other people, not in their camp, say. I find it pretty lame, but not "insulting." First, I don't accept any labelling, and, second, freedom of speech doesn't scare me.

Have I ever thanked you for welcoming my views on your blog, and for engaging in discussions?

Gerry, I have no problem with expression.

I have a huge problem when a MSM news organ endorses a radical viewpoint, as our news organs should have no overt agenda.

The NY Times giveing MoveOn that discount would be the same as a major news organ giving such a break (and thus a tacit endorsement) to the anti-government, militia movement that grew during the Clinton administration.

I have no problem with militia members and other anti-government activists, even anarchists "expressing themselves," but I do have a problem when the MSM endorses those kinds of fringe viewpoints in this way.

As for the "thanks," no need Gerry, as I'm glad to be able to engage someone I may disagree with in an amenable manner.

Sadly, today's political discourse has taken on some of the overtones of earlier religious discussions - those who disagree, are more often considered "heretics," to those on the other side, rather than merely fellow citizens who merely see things differently on certain issues.
