New York Times -"All the News That Fits We Print"

Boy, does the New York Times believe in that motto! (For the adults among us, the motto could be "All the news that's s**t we print"). The NYT has a history of printing only what it believes fits into its' liberal ideology; truth be damned, ethics be damned & professionalism be damned. Which is fine for their editorial page. But the NYT prints that ideology under the guise of "news". Front page stuff.

The other day the NY Slime heralded a large article on missing explosives, after the April invasion of Iraq, at Al Qaqaa (as in "the Slimes story is 'ca ca' doo doo") in Iraq, to the tune of 380 tons of RDX - an incredibly powerful explosive. And they claim RDX is used for triggering nuclear expolsions - could this be part of the wmd's that the Slime claims Saddam never had? The Slimes article was slanted to lead one to believe that the RDX was stolen under the nose of the US military. And that was the intent of the article - to lay blame on George Bush for this horrible lapse in protecting these explosives. The Slimes fails to equally mention that there was a month gap between when the last UN inspectors were at that site & when US troops arrived there April 9. The Slime article has been discredited here, here, & elsewhere. But facts mean nothing when it comes time for the Slime to pull an October Surprise to help Kerry's campaign. And CBS Sixty Minutes was planning to run this story 2 days before the election, but the Slime beat them to it. Apparently CBS has not learned from it's RatherGate forgeries.

The interference of mainstream media to purposely attempt to affect an election with old, distorted half-truths & misleading "information" should be the subject of scorn from everyone, if not outright criminal penalties. The NY Slime pulls this all the time. The newspaper of note - ha! But they are not alone. The Slime, CBS & others need to go back to journalism school to learn what ethics are & reassess what their responsibilities are to their readers.

Kerry on his part has been his typical pompous, bloviating self. He jumps on the Slime story immediately before he knows what the truth is & mouths off about Bush being misleading, incompetent & blah, blah, blah. Same old record. Even Kerry's spokesperson said that they didn't know if the explosives were removed before US forces arrived. But remember - Kerry is an opportunist & neither he or the NY Slime will let truth stand in their way to get him elected. Kerry is still reprehensible - but he has company with CBS & the NY Slime.

We had RatherGate, now it's NYTroGate.

Francis,

No matter what the situation was that lead up to the loss of the explosives, who is ultimatly responsible for them when OUR military is supposed to be watching them.. that is right.. the comander and chief and as hard as that is for me to say, it is "W". He is the one at fault and should accept blame and do waht needs to be done to correct this matter. I am not saying that in anyway I am positive that Kerry would do a better job.. I am saying that when things are not working there needs to be a change. I think that the american public is going to put that change into place in less than a week. I know you say that the NT Times is printing stuff that goes against "W" but at least it is vital information that the public should know about.. not the stuff that gets printed about Kerry when he makes a lesbian remark or something is said about his wife and her money. I am sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for next week to see what happens..

How are you going to feel if "W" is voted out??

hey Jeff: you are assuming we were watching the explosives. I'm saying the explosives were gone before we got there, so Georgie is not responsible. The NYT can go against Bush all it wants - just be truthful about it. If the horror of Bush losing comes to fruition, then don't get near me - I will be committing Blogocide.

Bunch of right wing sources. Clifford Day once worked for the NY Times. I wonder if they parted amicably?

Even the Pentagon is not saying that the explosives were removed before US troops arrived. As of today:

"U.S. defense officials were also studying reconnaissance images taken of vehicles at Al-Qaqaa before and during the war but have come up with nothing conclusive as to when the explosives were removed, they (Pentagon officials) said."

"Satellite photos of the Iraqi munitions dump where 380 tons of explosives went missing are being studied by the Pentagon"

I am wondering who you spoke to in Iraq, the Pentagon or wherever else that you can say with such certainty that the munitions were not there when US troops arrived. Is this FrancisGate?

All I can see throughout this election is half-cocked stories by the Right being balanced by half-cocked stories from the Left.

So far we have found that Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction and no ties to Al-Qaeda. But Iran has had ties to Al-Qaeda and is developing weapons of mass destruction. Seems to me George Bush did pretty well. After all, those countries are thousands of miles from the US and Bush was only off by one letter.

Francis,

how could they have been gone before we got there.. then how would we have known they were there.. because GEORGIE thought there were WMD but that was never found. You said it yourself that these explosives could be some of the mythical WMD. I THINK we were watching them and slacked off and now they are gone and people are scrambling to find them and that W is the one to hold responsible for this travisty. He can not keep waling away from things and saying that it was not his fault, he has done that his whole life and it needs to be stopped.

Well I would never want to see you commit bloggercide as you call it.. I enjoy our little exchanges too much.

Have a great day.

Jeff: How could explosives be gone before we got there? This is a tough one to answer, but I'll try = maybe they were gone before we got there because someone took them BEFORE we got there. And we were told by the IAEA a month earlier that they were there at that time. So a month gap from IAEA statement until we arrived. Gee - a whole month. So it might be possible they were taken in that month period, ya think? Kerry needs to wait until it is investigated before using some of that explosives to shoot off his mouth. lol

It's a good thing people have reported this. Right or wrong. Unpleasant news has a habit of being swept under the rug by the Bush administration. This way it WILL be investigated.

Latest news as on 10/31 indicates that the story is probably true.

"Iraq Video Shows U.S. Checking Missing Arms, ABC Says (Update2)
Oct. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Explosives that disappeared from Iraq's al-Qaqaa facility were still present after the U.S.-led invasion, according to ABC News, which aired a videotape shot at the site last year by a network affiliate.

U.S. soldiers are shown breaking into a bunker and then looking into crates and barrels marked ``explosive'' on the tape from KSTP, a station in St. Paul, Minnesota. KSTP's crew was embedded with the U.S. 101st Airborne Division when it passed through al-Qaqaa on April 18, 2003, ABC said on its Web site."

Latest news on 10/31?? 10/31 hasn't happened yet. Gee - a video of some boxes of explosives, but what explosives. The RDX? Other explosives? You're jumping the gun. And the Slimes' report was geared to harm Bush. It was not fair nor balanced.

Your quote of the day said that Iraq was the only country that used weapons of mass desruction against it's own people. US history is populated of examples of our own governement doing this.

Agent Orange sprayed on our own soldiers in Vietnam.

Radiation experiments on our own populace and soldiers.

Rapid fire rifles on peace demonstrators during Vietnam.

Cannon against Southerners in the Civil War.

Machine guns used against Indians - men, woman & children.

Geesh - can't you ever stay on topic? Duh!

Sorry for the off topic but you don't have a discussion board for individuals to initiate their own topics. Duh!

On topic. It's now 11/1/04. All sources that I have are pointing to the munitions being there when after US forces arrived.
