The New York Times v. Trump

The New York Times v. Trump

by Stephen Lendman

The Times one-sidedly supports Hillary, a virtual monster I’ve described in the most unflattering, honest, no-holds-barred terms.

At the same time, it’s leading an anti-Trump jihad, its front page a daily blizzard of disparaging articles - blasting whatever he does or doesn’t do, blowing things way out of proportion to denigrate him while ignoring Hillary’s high crimes.

It wants him defeated, Hillary elevated to the nation’s highest office by hook or crook, as they say. Trump is right fearing election rigging, a longstanding US tradition.

Things look arranged to quash his chance to become president - even current and former high-profile Republicans enlisted against him.

It’s one thing to take him to task on important issues, not a meaningless dustup between him and the father of a fallen US soldier, belaboring it for days, a convenient pretext to bash him.

Or enlisting dozens of former Republican and Democrat national security officials, denigrating him with misinformation and Big Lies - holding his wanting normalized relations with Russia against him instead of praising a vital initiative needed for world peace.

Reuters reported “(g)roups of wealthy Republicans unhappy with Donald Trump have been privately courting prominent peers to join them in backing Democrat Hillary Clinton’s US presidential bid…”

Wall Street and war-profiteers back her. The New York Times is her virtual press agent, denigrating Trump at every opportunity.

Its latest editorial blasts him, suggesting an internecine plot to dump him in favor of another candidate - an absurd, offensive notion about an aspirant in the race to win, not about to quit or let party rules be distorted to replace him as standard bearer.

Times editors deplorably call Hillary “a safe and conventional” candidate, portraying her as “a morally serious leader determined to address the country’s real problems.”

She’s responsible for a helluva lot of the worst ones, certain to worsen things if elevated to the nation’s highest office. Stopping her is top priority!
