New York Times: Don’t believe their lies, believe our lies.


The New York Times, perhaps the most Marxist Liberal dishonest member of America’s Fifth Column Treasonous Media yesterday engaged in a pure Pot meet Kettle moment of Theater of the Absurd. It is the kind of theater of the absurd that only those who know they are liars can engage in, even the self deluded can’t pull this level of dishonesty off.

If a Story Is Viral, Truth May Be Taking a Beating

Truth has never been an essential ingredient of viral content on the Internet. But in the stepped-up competition for readers, digital news sites are increasingly blurring the line between fact and fiction, and saying that it is all part of doing business in the rough-and-tumble world of online journalism.

Several recent stories rocketing around the web, picking up millions of views, turned out to be fake or embellished: a Twitter tale of a Thanksgiving feud on a plane, later described by the writer as a short story; a child’s letter to Santa that detailed an Amazon.com link in crayon, but was actually written by a grown-up comedian in 2011; and an essay on poverty that prompted $60,000 in donations until it was revealed by its author to be impressionistic rather than strictly factual.

Their creators describe them essentially as online performance art, never intended to be taken as fact. But to the media outlets that published them, they represented the lightning-in-a-bottle brew of emotion and entertainment that attracts readers and brings in lucrative advertising dollars.

When the tales turned out to be phony, the modest hand-wringing that ensued was accompanied by an admission that viral trumps verified — and that little will be done about it as long as the clicks keep coming. “You are seeing news organizations say, ‘If it is happening on the Internet that’s our beat,’ ” said Joshua Benton, director of the Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard. “The next step of figuring out whether it happened in real life is up to someone else.”

The New York Times has been publishing crap for 80 years or more that they knew was nothing short of damned lies, and pretending that it was the truth, for them to say “Truth has never been an essential ingredient of viral content on the Internet” has a decidedly hollow ring to it considering how Truth hasn’t been an essential ingredient of the New York Times my entire life.

Has the New York times returned the Pulitzer that Walter Duranty was awarded in 1932 for the lies he told about Stalin’s Soviet Union? How about the one awarded to David Barstow in 2009 for the lies he told about the US Military? Have they apologized to anyone about lying to them with regard to Obamacare? No, they haven’t because as I said above, the Truth hasn’t been an essential ingredient of the New York Times my entire life.

Do things on the internet go viral that are not true, yes, without a doubt, but for the most part, not because those who write them are intentionally attempting to deceive and manipulate their readers, but because those writers don’t have all the facts and are rushing to get a seemingly huge story into print as it were. Unlike the New York Times who has been knowingly willingly and with a full forethought of malice lying to America for nearly a century now.

The New York Times Marxist ideological agenda has poisoned everything they have printed since long before Walter Duranty praised one of the worst mass murders in the history of the entire world with his propaganda and lies about Joesph Stalin. Now they are continuing that fine tradition of treasonous lies and propaganda with fellow traveler and Comrade Obama. Yet somehow, they manage to have a pot meet kettle moment without sensing a single trace of the irony or hypocrisy in their “Truth has never been an essential ingredient of viral content on the Internet” statement.

Yea… Pot meet Kettle indeed…

  1. Most of us try to find an outlet that gives us close to what we want to hear. I’m guilty of that myself, although I’ve started to venture out into realms I’ve not tread in the past. To be honest on what’s going on around us (good and bad) is the hardest part, especially if we are hearing what we want. Do or are we able to trust anything anymore?

    • It all depends on how you define trust. For example, I 100 percent trust the Mainstream Media to attempt to mislead me at every opportunity.

      It is no accident that the NEWS has shifted towards entertainment, for deception is done in the telling of stories. The difference between NEWS and a story, is that NEWS can be broken down into 6 words.

      Who
      What
      Where
      Why
      When
      How.

      Learn to strip what you hear down to these bare essentials, then compare sources to see if they all agree on these basics. Everything else is spin or propaganda.

      Most lies, are not in what you are told, but what you are not told.

      How do you know when you are being lies to? That is the tricky part, before anyone can lie to you, there has to be the possibility that you will believe them. that requires the establishment of some level of trust.

      The one thing you can be certain of today, is that all of the media outlet’s have an agenda. Identify that agenda for each source and you get closer to the truth.

      Yes, almost all, perhaps even all human beings suffer from bias confirmation. Knowing that this is so helps you to not be blinded by it.

      Mostly I think that in this age of media manipulation, knowing who is going to profit from what you believe, from what you think you know, will help to to know when you are being lied to and manipulated.

      As the old saying goes, follow the money, when you see or hear anything, ask yourself, who is going to profit by my believing this.

      Always remember to reduce every NEWS story to

      Who
      What
      Where
      Why
      When
      How.

      Then ask, who will profit from this.

    • What is your point? A feeble attempt to defend the New York Times by casting aspersions on someone who was never mentioned at all? The intellectual gravitas of a bait and switch defense belongs in kindergarten. It implies a complete failure at rational thought and the social skills of a chimpanzee with mange. Furthermore it assumes facts not even remotely in evidence.
