The New York Times: Hillary's Press Agent


The New York Times: Hillary’s Press Agent

by Stephen Lendman

The Times mocks legitimate journalism. All the news it claims fit to print isn’t fit to read. 

It never lets facts interfere with its worldview, consistently misinforming readers, willfully lying, substituting fiction for hard truths.

Throughout the political season, it’s represented the Clinton campaign, shamelessly acting as a pseudo-official mouthpiece, turning journalism into PR promotion for villainy.

Branding four days exclusively representing America’s privileged class as “Hillary’s Convention,” The Times continues promoting an agenda threatening world peace, supporting monied interests over popular ones, and tyranny masquerading as democracy.

Shamelessly, Times editors, correspondents, columnists and contributors portray a ruthless war goddess/racketeer/Wall Street tool as being “left-leaning…on social, economic and political issues.”

Her agenda, if elected, assures dirty business as usual, likely elevated to an unprecedented level - notably risking global nuclear war by recklessly challenging Russia and China, along with exclusively representing monied interests at the expense of popular ones.

Lofty convention pontificating and platform mumbo jumbo can’t paper over a ruthless agenda demanding universal opposition.

Times editors claiming Hillary “adopt(ed) elements of the Sanders program” is willful deception, failing to explain his “political revolution” was smoke and mirrors demagoguery, illusion substituting for reality.

Hillary Clinton’s new Democrats,” as Times editors call them, aren’t democratic, progressive, anti-war, or anti-America’s imperial agenda.

They’re polar opposites on steroids, a neocon/war goddess-led scourge - the greatest threat to world peace, stability, and fundamental freedoms crucial to oppose.

Endorsing Clinton is further proof of The Times representing wealth and power interests over all others.
