America's Pravda: The New York Times Smears Hannity

The New York Times is trying to destroy the reputation of Sean Hannity. Last week, the country's leading liberal newspaper attacked the popular conservative radio and TV host. A Times reporter, Alessandra Stanley, criticized Mr. Hannity's new Sunday program on FOX News, "Hannity's America." According to The Times, Mr. Hannity erred while he exposed the dangerous and degrading nature of the world's oldest profession. In a recent show, he visited the Bunny Ranch brothel in Nevada, in which he interviewed several prostitutes. He even had the temerity to suggest that they find a safer and more respectable line of work. For feminist libertines like Ms. Stanley, this is heretical.

"While Mr. Hannity, who attended Roman Catholic parochial school, interviews scantily clad prostitutes, ostensibly urging them to quit and go to law school, the camera slowly moves from prostitute to prostitute, lasciviously lingering over the one with the largest, most exposed breasts," Ms. Stanley writes. Mr. Hannity is therefore being faulted for showing semi-nude women during his investigation of a Nevada brothel. What was his crew supposed to film--nuns praying the rosary? The story was about the sex trade in America, which means it must inevitably contain sexually explicit images. Ms. Stanley's criticism was puerile, baseless and detached from reality.

Ms. Stanley's article is a perfect example of the seminal problem plaguing The New York Times. The Times has long ceased to be a credible, objective news organization; rather, it is the ideological print vehicle for America's transnational liberal elites. For decades, The Times has not engaged in serious investigative reporting but in political propaganda.

In the 1960's, The Times led the charge for U.S. troops to withdraw from Vietnam; its writers promised there would be no real strategic and moral consequences. Instead, the declension of American power from Southeast Asia led to a regional holocaust. Hundreds of thousands of ethnic Chinese and Hmong tribal people were murdered and ethnically cleansed by Vietnam's victorious communists; over one million boat people fled Vietnam in make-shift rafts, risking their lives to escape the new totalitarian regime. In Cambodia, the Khmer Rouge exterminated over 2 million people. As this was happening, The New York Times' columnist, Anthony Lewis, for example, denied that atrocities were even taking place in Vietnam or Cambodia. He couldn't admit it, for to do so would eviscerate the liberal myth constructed by The Times' editors....

Since the fall of communism, The Times has consistently done the bidding of the New York liberal intelligentsia--it propped up Bill and Hillary Clinton, despite the fact that they presided over the most corrupt and scandal-ridden administration in U.S. history; it has turned a blind eye to the growing threat of Islamic fascism; it has sought to undermine the Bush administration's war on terrorism; it has led the chorus demanding the U.S. withdraw from Iraq (again promising that there will be no long-term strategic and moral consequences); it has promoted the radical social agenda of gay marriage, euthanasia, and abortion on demand; and it has served as the mouthpiece for environmental extremists who decry the evils of man-made "global warming."

The Times likes to present itself as America's "paper of record." Sadly, it is only the "paper of record" for our liberal elite. Just as Pravda was the official organ for Russia's communist elite, The New York Times is now America's Pravda--full of lies, inaccuracies and ideologically driven news coverage, but essential reading to find out what the next marching orders are for leftist internationalists. Pravda, however, was never considered to be a serious, honest newspaper; and neither should The Times be viewed as credible.....

Iranian bomb must be stopped: "Israeli leaders rarely invoke the Holocaust in the face of enemies. The Jewish homeland founded after Adolf Hitler's genocide has, for the last generation, felt secure enough to fight its many battles with little or no help. But the specter of a nuclear-armed Iran has rattled Israel's self-confidence. Its politicians and generals warn of a "second Holocaust" if, as in the 1930s, the world stands by while a heavily armed nation declares war against the Jews. Spelling out that scenario, Israeli officials have begun an unusually open campaign to muster international political and economic pressures against Iran. They warn that time is growing short and hint that they will resort to force if those pressures fail to prevent Iran's development of an atomic weapon. Israeli leaders fear that an Iranian bomb would undermine their nation's security even if Tehran never detonated it. That Israel has its own nuclear arsenal would not counteract the psychological and strategic blow, they believe. Israel began secretly preparing in the early 1990s for a possible air raid on Iran's then-nascent nuclear facilities and has been making oblique public statements about such planning for three years."

Insulated By Criticism, Iran Is Killing Americans ...And Everybody Knows It: "Some in the US Intelligence Community seem to operate in another realm and in a world with significantly different realities, dangers and potential outcomes. How else can it be explained that United States political leadership has been persuaded to withhold releasing intelligence regarding Iranian actions in Iraq, including arming, funding and training both Sunni and Shi'a groups killing US soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines, let alone the mind-boggling toll upon Iraq's civilian population? In question is the same Iran that even Hassan Nasrallah openly ceded feeds the Hizballah terrorist organization responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans, Israelis and Lebanese through its terrorist attacks, "And the help is funneled through Syria, and everybody knows it." "Everybody knows" a lot of things. One of them is an American fear of international and internal criticism that prevents her from doing what is necessary - or anything much beyond rhetoric, for that matter - to openly confront the Iranian regime that has been at war with the United States since its 1979 Islamic revolution."

Muslims converting to Christianity by the thousands in France: "Muslims are converting to Christianity in their thousands in France but face exclusion from their families and even death threats. Most Muslims hide their conversion and Protestant ministers do their utmost to protect new converts. It is estimated that every year in the world some six million Muslims convert to Christianity. The Muezzin call to prayer. But here in France it is no longer reaching all Muslim ears. Around 15,000 Muslims each year are converting to Christianity - around 10,000 to Catholicism and 5,000 to Protestantism....

BNP becoming the conservative alternative in Britain? "In a council by-election in Nuneaton & Bedworth yesterday, the "extreme right wing" BNP came in second with 31.15 percent of the vote, only narrowly beaten by the incumbent Labour, which took the seat with 37.54 percent. One should never draw conclusions from one set of results - especially from local by-elections. But this was a hard-fought contest, where the turnout was 36.08 percent despite the heavy snow, compared with the 20 percent that might have been expected. The Conservatives managed a mere 17.17 percent, the Lib-Dems 6.79 percent and UKIP a pathetic 0.45 percent, accounting for exactly eight votes. They were even beaten by the English Democrats, who pulled 75 votes. BNP's vote compares favourably with its share of the vote in Bradford during last May's local authority elections, when it achieved 27.5 percent of the vote in the wards which they contested."

"All the worth which the human being possesses, all spiritual reality, he possesses only through the State." -- 19th century German philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel. Hegel is the most influential philosopher of the Left -- inspiring Karl Marx, the American "Progressives" of the early 20th century and university socialists to this day.

The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism. The very word "Nazi" is a German abbreviation for "National Socialist" (Nationalsozialistisch) and the full name of Hitler's political party (translated) was "The National Socialist German Workers' Party".

R.I.P. Augusto Pinochet. Pinochet deposed a law-defying Marxist President at the express and desperate invitation of the Chilean parliament. He pioneered the free-market reforms which Reagan and Thatcher later unleashed to world-changing effect. That he used far-Leftist methods to suppress far-Leftist violence is reasonable if not ideal. The Leftist view that they should have a monopoly of violence and that others should follow the law is a total absurdity which shows only that their hate overcomes their reason -- Details here and here
