A Brief History of the Old Grey Lady

Those shocked that the New York Times would disclose state secrets aimed at combatting terrorism should be shocked. It is, after all, the paper that created Fidel and deliberately kept the world in the dark about Stalin's terror famines.

I ran across these quotes from Walter Duranty, the Stalinist Apologist, who wrote for the Times in the thirties when Stalin was deliberately starving millions to tighten his political grip on the country:
"There is no famine or actual starvation nor is there likely to be." --New York Times, Nov. 15, 1931, page 1

"Any report of a famine in Russia is today an exaggeration or malignant propaganda." --New York Times, August 23, 1933

"Enemies and foreign critics can say what they please. Weaklings and despondents at home may groan under the burden, but the youth and strength of the Russian people is essentially at one with the Kremlin's program, believes it worthwhile and supports it, however hard be the sledding." --New York Times, December 9, 1932, page 6

"You can't make an omelet without breaking eggs." --New York Times, May 14, 1933, page 18
"There is no actual starvation or deaths from starvation but there is widespread mortality from diseases due to malnutrition." --New York Times, March 31, 1933, page 13

Being treasonous can be very difficult with our liberal freedoms. Kudos to the Times for doing it so well for so long.

Update: NY Congressman, with balls, takes Times to task. Thank you Congressman, for your sanity, in times of stupidity.
