New York Times Falls into Habit of Blaming the Victim

Leo Rennert at American Thinker brings up the unsurprising revelation that the New York Times has blamed Israel for the mob in Egypt that attacked the Israeli embassy and drove the ambassador, his family, and staff out of the country. Their Jerusalem bureau chief, Ethan Bronner, placed himself squarely on the side of the minority in Israel calling for appeasement of its demonstrably implacable enemies.

Another chapter in the decline and fall of the Newspaper of Record: On the same day America was honoring the 10th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks, NewsBusters reported the sickeningly hateful ad hominem attacks of columnist Paul Krugman, who wrote, "Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons...." He conveniently ignored the fact that these atrocities were interpreted by millions, including President Bush and majorities in both houses of Congress, as ACTS OF WAR!
