You were saying about “agenda driven”?


I think this is the relevant "agenda" piece.

Duranty wrote for the NYT through 1936 and continued as a special reporter until 1940.

Quoting from the same article "The concern over Duranty's reporting on the famine in Soviet Ukraine led to a move to posthumously and symbolically strip him of the Pulitzer Prize he received in 1932.

In response to Stalin's Apologist (1990), the critical biography by Sally J. Taylor,[6] The New York Times assigned a member of its editorial board, Karl Meyer, to write a signed editorial about Duranty's work for the Times. In a scathing piece, Meyer said (24 June 1990) that Duranty's articles were "some of the worst reporting to appear in this newspaper." Duranty, Meyer said, had bet his career on Stalin's rise and "strove to preserve it by ignoring or excusing Stalin's crimes."[13] The Pulitzer Board in 1990 reconsidered the prize but decided to preserve it as awarded.[31] Four years earlier, in a review of Robert Conquest's The Harvest of Sorrow (1986), former Moscow bureau reporter Craig Whitney wrote that Duranty effectively ignored the famine until it was almost over.

In 2003, following an international campaign by the Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Association, the Pulitzer Board began a renewed inquiry, and The New York Times hired Mark von Hagen, professor of Russian history at Columbia University, to review Duranty's work as a whole. Von Hagen found Duranty's reports to be unbalanced and uncritical, and that they far too often gave voice to Stalinist propaganda. In comments to the press he stated, "For the sake of The New York Times' honor, they should take the prize away."[32] The Times sent von Hagen's report to the Pulitzer Board and left it to the Board to take whatever action they considered appropriate.[33] In a letter accompanying the report, The New York Times publisher Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr. called Duranty's work "slovenly" and said it "should have been recognized for what it was by his editors and by his Pulitzer judges seven decades ago."

So, what agenda is relevant? Looks to me like the Times did the right thing. When can we expect Faux, Breitbart et al to do the right things and denounce and repudiate Trump?

Well those just as stupid authors seem to be battling close to 1.000 regarding Obamagate, the weaponization of the intel forces, the entire Russian hoax, the spying on US citizens, the involvement of five eye intelligence sources and all the other sordid details that are already revealed and more that will be coming with the three investigations and the declassification that Barr will be doing.

Your one example doesn’t undo all of the other agenda driven things they have done and continue to do.

This, for instance:
“TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL
‘Reporting on the Times’ Calls Out New York Times Holocaust Coverage”

Or is their “reporting” on the holocaust one more “doing the right thing” for you?

Obamagate


A non-existent thing is 100%? Obamagate is a per se example of hidden conspiracy lunacy.

more that will be coming with the three investigations and the declassification that Barr


Sure. Just like Seth Rich, Pizzagate, Benghazi, Hillary's emails, Moon Nazis, Chemtrails, Sandy Hook hoaxers, Majorie Stoneman hoaxers, fluoridated water, vaccines, the round earth, faked moon landings, UFO adbuctions et al?

Yeah.

Nothing that his administration did is blameworthy.

And he was totally disconnected from and completely unaware of all of the actions of all those senior officials in all those agencies who did absolutely nothing wrong.

And there will be no illegalities or irregularities or failures to follow standing rules and regulations by any of them.

You folks are still certain there was collusion, there was obstruction and there is a cover up.

Place some money where your beliefs are?

Didn’t think so.

Kyote when you live in tornado alley, you should not be surprised by tornados. Here’s a hint if you are concerned.

Move elsewhere.

There’s so much cognitive dissonance in this post it’s literally dripping out of my phone.

Keep going, please, whoever you are. It’s amazing to read your predictions, and mildly amusing to witness you thinking anyone gives a fuck for your two cents.
