The NY Times Supported Stalin & Communism As the Way to the Future - Why Trust These Lying, Left-Biased Urinalists?

The New York Times cheered Stalin and constantly reported that this was the way to the future. Their top journalist, Walter Duranty (1884-1957), was their man in Moscow. The New York Times promoted him to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for that reporting. When Gareth Jones (1905-1935) in March 1933 reported this was all a lie, the truth finally began to appear.

Are we supposed to trust these people again? The leftist media is continuously supporting the overthrow of our democracy. They remain dishonest propaganda artists who threaten our very way of life. Once again, we have the media trying to convince us to surrender all our freedoms to create a better world that they dream of along with all other Marxists. They are once again doing everything in their power to destroy our freedoms.

    As President Trump has stated over and over and over again the failing New York Times and the fake media are the enemy of the people. It may not sound Presidential, but I suppose with the presidents we have endured the truth isn’t very Presidential.

      Presidents concerned with appearing public image presidential are more into serving themselves than serving We The People.
      Observing the Bad Hair Day Tangerine Tornado has taught me dino that.

    Once upon a time a newspaper reporter myself a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, me dino thinks I can understand the lazy saps at The NY Times.
    Why be a hard-working researching journalist when instead you can just take dictation from Bolshevik elite masters?
    Heck, your propaganda periodical won't even have a need to hustle after forbidden capitalist ads.
    Pay cuts will be more frequent than pay raises with all the utopian redistribution of wealth that won't at all be the norm for the ruling elite.
    So why knock yourself out?
    Hey, me dino recalls reading that Soviet citizens always had plenty of vodka to drink.
    So if you're feeling useless, I'm sure Americans will always have a black market for white lightning during government shortages.
    We won't be having another Roaring Twenties with any Speak Easys, that's for sure, but a foggy buzz will help us cope with all the dreary malaise.
    Hey, Muslim terrorists will still be clinging to their guns and and their Qurans. So there will always be that around to provide some excitement.
    Power to the people, y'all!

      Make lying in the media a felony with jail time for individuals and being banned from publishing or broadcasting as punishment for corporations.
      Then maybe we'd see less rubbish and less incentive to lie.

        Everyone lies. You can't jail everyone. They lie to protect themselves and their interests. Lies can be adjusted, tailored to arising new conditions. Even the excuses for deliberate or accidental mistakes are lies. Is the statement, "everyone lies," also a lie? The denser the population, the more pressure on survival, the more ingenious the devices an advanced culture will concoct to practice its violence.

        How can you eliminate the predatory impulse at every step of the scale of human interactions? Physical violence can be outlawed. Physical violence is the final step in a failed attempt to deceive, defraud, and sabotage. Attempts to eliminate the obstacles to a just and peaceful world have failed for millennia, starting with emotional triggers such as envy, hate, power lust, greed, revenge, all directed at others who seem to be doing better and aimed at taking what they have. Can free will overcome these primitive drives, shared even by two chickens in a barnyard fighting over the same worm?

          Well 'Puzzlelady' you just answered a question I've had for years. When I asked a friend why I didn't get re-elected, he said, 'They can't control you and they can't buy you. They have to get rid of you.'

          Cut the strawman arguments. Jailing "everyone" ? You said that, I didn't.

          If we are ever to be able to rely on media, then they must be held to a higher standard than is the current practice.
          They have disregarded responsibility to report the truth while claiming that they do so. There is a mass of evidence that they have repeatedly slanted and biased their reporting.
          Police are required to have evidence in order to charge someone with a crime.
          Should media should be held to a similar standard in reporting?

            It is fervently to be wished that media would be objectively accurate. Truth has become malleable, as each individual and each collective has beliefs and values by which they evaluate reality. They will always slant the facts to their own views when promulgating them and filter them through their own bias when receiving them. The sheer volume of events and evolving opinions makes it nearly impossible to be nakedly factual. Even a fully objective thinker like you can't keep up with the permutations and variations that emerge from the mix of nearly 8 billion minds. Slanting and bias are the life preservers of ideologies. Jailing them won't solve this. Even discrediting the philosophy of the publisher, who determines the tone and political preference, won't cure the problem since the public breaks into partisanships and reinforces those memes.

            Speaking of police, they are not too particular these days about evidence before charging. Their hands are too full with the unrest and havoc wreaked by political extremists of all stripes, and the increased crime rate in a rebellious public.

            I applaud your demand for truth in reporting (or truth in advertising?). I merely analyze why it is not happening. Everyone is partial to their own persuasions (implanted memes). Every article is emotionally tinged. Every event evokes emotional responses, even the most understated report. Truth to tell, I can't recall ever before reading about tragic events as these days, where the same murderous individual is either a hero or a villain, depending on the viewer's side. The outlook for truth in our time is not good.

        There are already slander and libel laws.
        What laws do you expect your overlords to use to limit free speech in their unlimited powers to root out lying and other discussing behavior? The problem is how to get the citizens to give a shit about anything but the fun social lives that they live?

      I heard from Russians, that the companies paid in cash (this has changed, their system is more efficient than ours, they pay do a "debit" card and simultaneously pay the government their cut. Everyone pays the same rate on income tax, so it's simple math).

      But in the old days, when cash was short, employees could "buy" vodka and toilet paper from the company with SOME of their owed paychecks. Many people were accustomed to waiting a MONTH to get their pay. But this created a nation of SAVERS. Most Russians had many months worth of cash on hand, because paychecks could be late...

      Nowadays they are adopting technology, and you are replacing HORRIBLE customers service (from the Soviet days) with a PLEASANT automated process...

      The biggest change... Drivers are becoming more polite! They flash their hazards as a way of saying Thank You for letting them merge in, etc. The changes I have witnessed... It's kinda amazing.

      We, of course, are going backwards!

        Thanks, you've added the "how" and the "why" to the "what" I read before the Soviet Union collapsed about Russian citizens getting their vodka.
        What, when, where, how and why is formula I was taught in journalism school for writing news stories in the "inverted pyramid style" (most important facts follow by the consecutively least important facts) during the early Seventies right after I got out of the Marines.
        Nowadays Fake News adds fabrications to facts.

          As a "non-drinking" American. I, personally, was appalled that Vodka was put at the same level of need as toilet paper.

          To be certain, I have an emergency Bidet Bottle. LOL. So even sans TP in Post Covid America, I am good.

          Then I realized that Vodka was a social lubricant in America. In Russia, it was a Societal Lubricant. (Like Soma, 1 gram and you don't give a damn).

          BTW, the Young Russian Ladies are the ones that changed things! They realized they had more power than they realized, when they stopped settling for boys who lived with their parents, the MEN showed up, and the culture started changing.

          Do NOT underestimate the RUINATION caused by the current feminist movement in this country. It will destroy a generation or two, chasing men away from women, and preventing families from being started. Again, we move backwards!

    It is beyond the pale to think that these ideologies, these supposed utopias were the way of the future.
    They down right take us back to our days in Babylon...dirty, starving and forced into labor, not to mention, ruled by our lessor's ...that realization was the very reason for the fall of Babylon and a doubling down on the confoundation of everything in order to keep the coming mind of man from emerging.

    Two and only two reasons exist for their complicity: One, they were dumb as rocks, Two, they thought of themselves as equals to power.

    It's not their fault.

    Quick: If YOU wanted to control the attention/minds of Americans, what would you do? (Hint: Control the media and entertainment)

      First I'd mind wipe them all and put them through an unbiased 3 years of re-education to include logic and most of Ayn's writings.
      Then truth from the Bully Pulpit.
      But I'm not seeking power for myself, I just want the People to make rational decisions for themselves.
