NYT Suggests Trump May Instigate "Incitement" to Further His Campaign

NYT Suggests Trump May Instigate “Incitement” to Further His Campaign

by Stephen Lendman

How low is stooping too low? The Times tests the limits. It keeps reaching for new lows almost on a daily basis.

Their newspaper isn’t fit to wrap a dead fish in, with attribution to what the late noted Chicago journalist Mike Royko once said about Rupert Murdoch publications.

Times editors latest anti-Trump harangue said “(p)erhaps he has given up on winning through civil means and does not care about the consequences of his campaign of incitement.”

Insinuating he may try winning in November by foul means, suggesting he wants “gun rights supporters tak(ing) matters into their own hands” by assassinating Hillary, and now implying he may encourage violent/lawless behavior to further his ambitions sounds to me like libelous stuff without merit to pursue against the paper’s management and editors through litigation.

The Times wants Hillary succeeding Obama, ignoring her high crimes, bashing Trump relentlessly, inventing stuff to hold against him, making it up as the campaign proceeds.

In hindsight, it may been as America’s dirtiest, entirely one-sided to assure no change in longstanding US policy - especially its rage for endless wars, humanity’s greatest scourge.
