flushing toiletIf you have followed the New York Times' coverage of the pro democracy protests in Wisconsin and Ohio, you can't help see how that once proud newspaper has become a Faux News style propaganda rag for the rich, for their corporations, for the GOP and against middle class and poor Americans.

I for one am sick and tired of that paper's content being comparable to that which one flushes down the toilet. If you don't like this, you should contact their circulation department, the one that is responsible for newspaper sales. As a customer, former customer, or someone who refuses to pay for their biased garbage, that's where you have the most leverage.

Whenever you see a biased article, it also is a good idea to directly email the reporter(s) propagandist(s) who wrote it.

I'm sure you have a list of grievances against that rightist propaganda rag. Here are some of mine.

1) Refusing to acknowledge the fact that the Wisconsin and Ohio protests are pro democracy protests.

2) Failing to acknowledge the fact that the teabagger counter protests which the Times is promoting are tiny and completely staged by the Koch brothers.

3) Running public relations pieces glorifying Scott Walker instead of doing actual news coverage.

4) Censoring the fact that Wisconsin's deficits could easily be converted to surpluses by making Walker's rich campaign contributors pay their fair share in taxes.

5) Failing to acknowledge that the right to organize unions and the right to strike are universally recognized human rights.

6) Giving far more ink and pixels to the side of the rich and the Republicans than to the side of middle class Americans.

7) The general pattern of rightist propaganda at the NY Times.

8) The heavy news censorship at that paper which rivals that under Soviet Pravda.

pile of decomposing newspapersYou don't need to live in NY to take part in this action. This is a national propaganda rag, and they want circulation dollars from throughout the US. Please contact them now!

  2. The following article is from the blog "Bill in Exile." The anti-collective bargaining bill in Wisconsin does a bit more than destroy the power of public-employee labor unions, it seems. I doubt that the NY Times has been reporting about this either:

    "With all the sound and fury coming out of Wisconsin regarding Governor Scott Walker’s naked attempt at destroying the public employee union there — an interesting little tidbit about the bill that Walker has proposed has apparently been missed/ignored by the media but been brought to light by Ed over at Gin and Tacos.

    I’m talking about this bit right here that appears in the very same union busting bill but is hidden in the small print and among the 144 pages of the union busting bill’s verbiage:

    16.896 Sale or contractual operation of state owned heating, cooling, and power plants. (1) Notwithstanding ss. 13.48 (14) (am) and 16.705 (1), the department may sell any state owned heating, cooling, and power plant or may contract with a private entity for the operation of any such plant, with or without solicitation of bids, for any amount that the department determines to be in the best interest of the state. Notwithstanding ss. 196.49 and 196.80, no approval or certification of the public service commission is necessary for a public utility to purchase, or contract for the operation of, such a plant, and any such purchase is considered to be in the public interest and to comply with the criteria for certification of a project under s. 196.49 (3) (b).

    Sooooo, the state of Wisconsin will now be allowed to sell off its power plants to anyone it so chooses without the benefit of a bidding process and without the approval of the public service commission.

    And even if they sell the plants for a buck and the plant is worth a billion dollars, that sale will be deemed to have been in the public interest if the state {governor} says so.

    Now, as interesting {and when I say interesting what I really mean is deeply sleazy} as that bit of brazen republican privatization of a public asset is, what’s even more interesting is the answer one gets when one asks the question, “which private company, owned by two ultra-conservative, wingnutiest of wingnut brothers who bankrolled Scott Walkers election, has been wanting to buy up power plants in Wisconsin lately and already has substantial business interests in that state?”

    Would You believe Koch Industries? Owned by the execrable Koch brothers?

    In fact, The Americans for Prosperity group — a teabagger group that is a Koch brothers front — has even set up a website in support of Walker’s efforts at www.standwithwalker.com.

    Hmmmmm, so Scott Walker wants the Badger State to swallow no bid/low ball, sweetheart deals where scumbags like the Kochs get to come in and buy up Wisconsin’s public utilities without any oversight or approval on behalf of the tax paying, rate paying public allowed.

    What could possibly go wrong with that?

    Lots of right-wing asswipes and Kool-Aid drinkers have been saying that Governor Walker is only doing what the voters of Wisconsin elected him to do in his efforts at busting the unions.

    I’d like to ask those same people if selling off Wisconsin’s valuable, publicly owned assets to douchebags like the Kochs for pennies on the dollar and without the rate paying public in Wisconsin being able to have any say in the matter was also what they elected Walker to do?"
