People Should Stop Buying the Washington Post and New York Times

Posted by libhom Thursday, September 20, 2007

Rightist bias in these two publications gets more rabid with each passing day. A really twisted example of this occurred in the Washington Post's ironically named "fact-checker" column. The column consisted of highly deceptive spin and factual errors intended to falsely claim that MoveOn.org's "Betray Us" ad was inaccurate. The Post was propagandizing for the GOP and the corporate interests that profit from the Iraq War in the guise of "fact-checking."

True income for middle class and poor Americans has been declining for years. Many Americans are up to their earlobes in debt. Why should any of us pay to get a bunch of corporate propaganda when we can get actual news over the Internet for free? How much longer will so many people be willing to pay to have their intelligence insulted?

People should stop buying these corporate propaganda rags on the newsstand. Subscriptions should be canceled with explanations as to why those two papers are not worth paying for. We the people have power over corporate interests. We just need to educate ourselves to that fact.

  2. I saw the fact check widget yesterday and when I examined what they posted in it..I decided it was bullshit and didn't put it on my website.

    There are degrees of bias and the NYT and WaPo both have some very good writers, Dana Milbank, Eugene Robinson..just two that come to mind.I won't condemn the entire organization because of its editorial bent.

  4. It is important to remember that most media bias occurs in the "news" sections of newspapers, and that bias is uniformly right wing.

    If you like an individual writer, you can read his or her work online. Why pay for a huge amount of GOP/corporate propaganda to get a small amount of worthwhile content that is available elsewhere?
