Liberal media/NYTimes plays the old bury the dem party affiliation game

29 posts in this topic

Online I do...and I read the N&O when it's free and they do the same thing, just not as bad. The N&O had other subtle ways. They take pictures of republicans while they're speaking and catch them mid-word when the mouth is contorted or wide open and use that as the article pic. Nothing big...just subtle.

If you ever get to Raleigh...go into the N&O and read the little plaque they have in the front lobby.

why don't you just tell me what it says?

It's been years since I've been there...so I'll have to go back by to re-read it to make sure I have it right. This was late 90s that I was there....but I do live in Raleigh. Maybe someone here is employed there and know what I'm talking about.

seems like fox makes a WHOLE lot of 'common mistakes' while organizations you deem liberal always do things intentionally. that's a very convenient worldview you've got there.

Yeah...because the NYTimes never retracts or prints a correction.

Why are you so willingly ignorant, rodeo?

Like I said...the writing style IS intentional...not a mistake. Did you even read the link?

WTH does that prove...I was saying sarcastically that yeah...they NEVER have corrections or retract statements.

But the subject here...which you're trying to deviate from by creating this dumbass strawman is...

A correction would be NYTimes incorrectly labeling a congressman as an R instead of a D.

This isn't a correctionable item...it's factually correct. It's a certain writing style and omission that's the issue you Obamabot.

If you had read the link...

The Times also failed to identify Dodd as a Democrat in a June 2008 story about Dodd receiving a sweetheart mortgage interest rate from mortgage lender Countrywide Financial. By contrast, when Republican Rep. Vito Fossella of New York was charged with drunken driving in early May 2008, the Times worked his party affiliation into the second paragraph and invariably mentioned his Republican standing in its follow-up stories.
